Come All Ye Faithful

Verse 1
Come, all ye faithful
Joyful and triumphant
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem
Come and behold Him
Born the King of angels!

Chorus
O come, let us adore Him!
O come, let us adore Him!
O come, let us adore Him
Christ the Lord!

Verse 2
Yea, Lord, we greet Thee
Born this happy morning!
Jesus, to Thee be all glory given!
Word of the Father
Now in flesh appearing

Verse 3
True God of true God
Light from Light eternal
Humbly He enters the virgin’s womb
Son of the Father
Begotten, not created

Chorus
O come, let us adore Him!
O come, let us adore Him!
O come, let us adore Him
Christ the Lord!

Come Behold the Wondrous Mystery

Verse 1
Come, behold the wondrous mystery
In the dawning of the King
He, the theme of Heaven’s praises
Robed in frail humanity
In our longing, in our darkness
Now the Light of Life has come
Look to Christ, who condescended
Took on flesh to ransom us

Verse 2
Come, behold the wondrous mystery
He, the perfect Son of Man
In His living, in His suffering
Never trace nor stain of sin
See the true and better Adam
Come to save the hell-bound man
Christ, the great and sure fulfillment
Of the law; in Him we stand

Verse 3
Come, behold the wondrous mystery
Christ the Lord upon the tree
In the stead of ruined sinners
Hangs the Lamb in victory
See the price of our redemption
See the Father’s plan unfold
Bringing many sons to glory
Grace unmeasured, love untold

Verse 4
Come, behold the wondrous mystery
Slain by death, the God of life
But no grave could e’er restrain Him
Praise the Lord, He is alive!
What a foretaste of deliverance
How unwavering our hope
Christ, in power, resurrected
As we will be when He comes

Do Not Fear

Verse 1
Humble virgin, arise and take heart
You’ve been chosen to carry a son
Give no heed to the trembling inside
For the wonder has only begun

Chorus 
Do not fear, do not fear
The child you will hold is the Savior foretold drawing near
Do not fear

Verse 2
Lowly shepherds, look up and take heart
See the glory of heaven burn bright
Hear the anthem of joy and good news
Hope has dawned in a stable tonight

Chorus
Do not fear, do not fear
The child in the hay is the Ancient of Days drawing near
Do not fear

Verse 3
Weary children, be still and take heart
Every longing you feel is a cry
For the rest He has offered to all
Come to Him, for His burden is light

Chorus
Do not fear, do not fear
The God who redeems you and ever will keep you is near
Do not fear

He Who Is Mighty

Verse 1
Oh, the mercy our God has shown
To those who sit in death’s shadow
The Sun on high pierced the night
Born was the Cornerstone!

Chorus
Unto us a Son is given!
Unto us a Child is born!

He who is mighty has done a great thing
Taken on flesh and conquered death’s sting
Shattered the darkness and lifted our shame
Holy is His name!

Verse 2
Oh, the freedom our Savior won
The yoke of sin has been broken
Once a slave, now by grace
No more condemnation!

Bridge
Now my soul magnifies the Lord!
I rejoice in the God who saves!
I will trust His unfailing love!
I will sing His praises all my days!

Closing Song

From the Squalor (Immanuel)

Verse 1
From the squalor of a borrowed stable
By the Spirit and a virgin’s faith
To the anguish and the shame of scandal
Came the Savior of the human race!

But the skies were filled
With the praise of heav’n
Shepherds listen as the angels tell
Of the gift of God
Come down to man
At the dawning of Immanuel!

Verse 2
King of heaven
Now the Friend of sinners
Humble servant in the Father’s hands
Filled with power and the Holy Spirit
Filled with mercy for the broken man

Yes, He walked my road
And He felt my pain
Joys and sorrows that I know so well
Yet His righteous steps
Give me hope again
I will follow my Immanuel!

Verse 3
Through the kisses of a friend’s betrayal
He was lifted on a cruel cross
He was punished for the world’s transgressions
He was suffering to save the lost

He fights for breath
He fights for me
Loosing sinners from the claims of hell!
And with a shout
Our souls are free
Death defeated by Immanuel!

Verse 4
Now He’s standing in the place of honor
Crowned with glory, on the highest throne
Interceding for His own beloved
Till His Father calls to bring them home

Then the skies will part
As the trumpet sounds
Hope of heaven or the fear of hell
But the Bride will run
To her Savior’s arms
Giving glory to Immanuel!
Giving glory to Immanuel!
