Once in royal David's city Stood a lowly cattle shed Where a mother laid her baby In a manger for His bed Mary was that mother mild Jesus Christ her little child He came down to earth from heaven Who is God and Lord of all And His shelter was a stable And His cradle was a stall With the poor and meek and lowly Lived on earth our Savior holy And our eyes at last shall see Him Through His own redeeming love For that child so dear and gentle Is our Lord in heaven above And He leads His children on To the place where He is gone

God rest ye merry, gentlemen Let nothing you dismay Remember, Christ, our Savior Was born on Christmas day To save us all from Satan's power When we were gone astray O tidings of comfort and joy Comfort and joy O tidings of comfort and joy From God our Heavenly Father A blessed Angel came And unto certain Shepherds Brought tidings of the same How that in Bethlehem was born The Son of God by Name O tidings of comfort and joy Comfort and joy O tidings of comfort and joy "Fear not then," said the Angel "Let nothing you affright This day is born a Savior Of a pure Virgin bright To free all those who trust in Him From Satan's power and might" O tidings of comfort and joy Comfort and joy O tidings of comfort and joy Now to the Lord sing praises All you within this place And with true love and brotherhood Each other now embrace This holy tide of Christmas All other doth deface O tidings of comfort and joy Comfort and joy O tidings of comfort and joy

No eye had seen The Spirit o'er the waters The Light no one could enter The all consuming fire No ear had heard The breath of every being The Word from the beginning Until the birth of Christ What has God prepared for those who love him? Who understood The Judge would be our Savior Our King dressed like a beggar The humbled Great I Am Who could conceive That Love would join creation The Holy incarnation The final Paschal Lamb What has God prepared for those who love him? No one had known So hopeless our infection So ruined our condition That we must be reborn No one foresaw The righteous being rejected The wicked being forgiven The children given a sword What has God prepared for those who love him?

How can it be? My Savior Is lying in a manger To save my soul from danger He left His throne above How mighty is this baby I know my heart's unsteady But may my lips be ready To praise this Lord of love The King of all creation Has set aside His station He comes to bring salvation Redemption now draws near In Him is all my delight My future is in Him bright He's made my joy like sunlight For I don't have to fear To thank Him what can I do? My earthly treasures are few He's given me a life new To serve Him all my days My God can never fumble He's lifted up the humble No longer shall I stumble But walk in His own ways And to our God, be all glory And to our God, be all glory And to our God, be all glory Give all praise to the King Of His mercy ever sing Of His mercy ever sing

Comfort 04:50
Comfort, comfort ye My People Speak ye peace, thus saith our God Comfort those who sit in darkness Mourning ‘neath their sorrow’s load Speak ye to Jerusalem that her warfare is now over That her sins are covered and will be no more And in the end when all is said and done There’ll be peace O, her sins are God will pardon Blotting out each dark misdeed All that well deserved His anger He no more will see nor heed She has suffered many days but now her sadness is no more God has changed her greatest griefs into gladness And in the end, she’ll be left singing a song Of victory For the prophet’s voice is crying In the desert far and near Bidding all men to repentance For the kingdom now is here The stars they shine so bright in the sky at the baby’s birth Let the valleys rise and the hills bow to greet Him O, heed the word of the wasteland watchman “Prepare the way…” Come you sinners and hear Christ is Lord, don’t fear Our redemption draws near Lift your head
