The WONDER

December 25, 2014

The Highest Place contained the One

Who thought it good and right,

To lay aside His Godly powers

And come to us this night.

 

Chorus

Oh wondrous night!

Earth’s holiest night!

God came, with us to dwell;

To take upon Himself our sin

And save from death and hell!

 

The angels watched with breathless joy

The birth of God’s dear Son

“It’s time; go tell the people now”

“Proclaim that He has come!”

 

The Shepherds feared, then ran with haste

To see what angels told;

This babe upon the manger’s hay

Would one day save the world!

 

And Mary, pondered all these things

And treasured every one.

This child conceived of God in her

She knew was God’s own Son!

 

And as you gaze upon this sight

What will you do with Him,

Who came to set the captives free

And save you from your sin?

 

Oh, kneel in wonder at this sight

And fall upon your face,

And trust Him as your Lord and King

Delivered by His grace!
