Good Christian Men, Rejoice - Lyrics


Good Christian men rejoice
With heart and soul and voice!
Give ye heed to what we say

Jesus Christ is born today!
Ox and ass before Him bow
And He is in the manger now
Christ is born today!
Christ is born today!

Good Christian men, rejoice
With heart and soul and voice
Now ye hear of endless bliss
Joy! Joy! Joy! Joy!

Jesus Christ was born for this
He hath opened the heavenly door
And man is Blessed evermore
Christ was born for this!

Good Christian men, rejoice
With heart and soul and voice
Now ye need not fear the grave
Peace! Peace!

Jesus Christ was born to save
Calls you one and calls you all
To gain His everlasting hall
Christ was born to save!

Christ was born to save!

Hello brothers and sisters,

Tomorrow is Christmas Day — A day when many Christians the world over celebrate the birth of our Risen Savior, Jesus the Messiah!

In honor of His birth, today's post features a touching music video from the "Gentlemen Trio" vocal group, GENTRI — and their beautiful version of the traditional Christmas Carol, O Holy Night.

I pray their music will Bless you and remind of of the true meaning of Christmas — and fill your heart with the Love, Joy, and Peace found only through Jesus the Messiah, King, and Lord of all!

O Holy Night - Lyrics

O Holy night! The stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear Savior's birth!

Long lay the world in sin and error pining
'Til He appears and the soul felt its worth

A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices!
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn!

Fall on your knees; O hear the Angel voices!

O night divine, O night when Christ was born
O night, O Holy night, O night divine!


Led by the light of Faith serenely beaming
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand
So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming
Here come the Wise Men from Orient land
The King of kings lay thus in lowly manger
In all our trials born to be our friend
He knows our need, to our weakness is no stranger
Behold your King; before Him lowly bend
Behold your King; before Him lowly bend

Truly He taught us to love one another
His law is love and His Gospel is Peace

Chains shall He break, for the slave is our brother
And in His name, all oppression shall cease

Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we
Let all within us Praise His Holy name!

Christ is the Lord!
Then ever, ever we praise Thee!

Noel!  Noel!

O night when Christ was born

O night

Fall on your knees; O hear the Angel voices!
O night divine, O night when Christ was born


O night divine, O night when Christ was born

Christmas Carol Medley · Heidi Joy


Embedded below you'll find a "music-only" video of a medley of familiar Christmas Carols by singer Heidi Joy, accompanied by Tim Tyler on piano.

It's wonderful to hear these old familiar songs —Star Of Wonder / It Came Upon A Midnight Clear / O Little Town Of Bethlehem — stripped down to just a reverent and beautiful solo vocal and piano performance.

I pray in this season when many Christians the world over celebrate Jesus' birth — this music will Bless you and flood your heart with the Love and Grace found only through our risen Lord and Messiah.

The First Noel - David Archuleta


Hello brothers and sisters!

Christmas Day, a day when many Christians celebrate Jesus' birth, will soon be here.

For some, it is simply a time of sharing gifts and gathering with family — but for many Christians it is also a time of remembering Jesus our Savior — His humble, yet miraculous virgin birth in a mangerprophesied by scripture and declared by God's angels (Luke 2:8-20).

Indeed Jesus was and is the only Son of God (Psalm 2:7 - John 1:14), and is Himself God (John 10:22-30).

Please Note:  All links in this post will open in a new window

So Christians celebrate Jesus' birth because we know that His sinless earthly life, death, and resurrection, paid in full perfectly and completely the price for our sin (Luke 24:36-48) — granting us Mercy, Forgiveness and eternal life with our God — where there will be no more tears, sorrow or pain! (Revelation 21:4)

So as we celebrate Jesus' humble earthly birth —we also celebrate the wonderful Blessing to all who believe in Him and His gift of Mercy and Grace! (John 1:12-13)

---------------------------------

Below you'll find a beautiful lyric-only video of The First Noel by David Archuleta.

In French, joyeux noel means “Merry Christmas.”

More on the meaning of Noel

Enjoy — and as you listen let God speak His Love, Comfort, Healing, and Blessing into your heart, mind, and spirit!

The First Noel - Lyrics

Noel

The first Noel the angels did say
Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay
In fields where they lay keeping their sheep
On a cold winter's night that was so deep

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel!
Born is the King of Israel!

They looked up and saw the star
Shining in the east beyond them far
And to the earth it gave great light
And so it continued both day and night

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel!
Born is the King of Israel!

Born is the King!

Hallelujah! 

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel!
Born is the King of Israel!

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel!
Born is the King of Israel!

Born is the King! 

Noel, Noel!
The angels did sing

Noel, Noel!

JJ Heller - Star of Wonder (We Three Kings)

Recently, I heard JJ Heller's Star of Wonder (We Three Kings) — and instantly fell in love with with her soft and gentle performance and knew immediately I wanted to post it here as the first Christmas song of this 2019 Season.

Whether you celebrate the 25th as our Savior's birth or not — allow God to pour his abundant Mercy, Love, Healing, and Blessings into your heart and life through her music — and remind you of our Wonderful Messiah and King — Yeshua — Jesus the Christ!!

Matthew 2:1-2

Star of Wonder (We Three Kings)  - Lyrics

There were kings of the orient
Bringing gifts to the Child
Through the fields and deserts they came
Messiah was worth every mile

Star of wonder, star of light
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading, still proceeding
Guide us to thy perfect light


Gold and frankincense, myrrh the perfume
Breathes a life of gathering gloom
Sorrow, sighing, bleeding and dying
Sealed in the stone cold tomb

Star of wonder, star of light
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading, still proceeding
Guide us to thy perfect light


Glorious now behold Him arise!
King and God and Sacrifice
Hallelujah, Hallelu
Sounds through the earth and the skies

Star of wonder, star of light
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading, still proceeding
Guide us to thy perfect light


Through the fields and deserts they came
Messiah was worth every mile!!

Classic Gospel! Ernest Franklin - My Lord And I - And Two More Tracks From Close To Thee Album


YouTube's Gospel Nostalgia channel just uploaded a three tracks from Ernest Franklin's "Close To Thee Album" recorded in 1972.

(Sadly, according to the channel, the rest of the album is no longer available)

That music only video (found below) begins with, My Lord and I.

Then Nobody but You Lord starts at 2:45

And finally, There’s A Leak in This Old Building begins at 6:10

All three songs are excellent, although I admit I'm especially partial to the first track.

If you're a fan of that Classic Gospel sound I'm betting you'll love these tracks too.

So give this video a spin and allow God to pour his Love and Power in to your heart and life through Franklin's excellent music!

My Lord And I - Lyrics

Well, you know we gonna walk
This road to Glory
Children, My Lord and I
And we'll talk and tell the story
My Lord and I

Rain or shine, snow or sleet,
The Blessed Lord, is going to guide my feet
And we'll walk this road to Glory
My Lord and I

Repeats

Well my steps are growing feeble
Oh, my eyes are growing dim
I can feel God's arms around me
And I'm leaning hard on Him

Now when my earthly friends forsake me
I've got another Friend
He's up on high
One day we'll walk this road to Glory
My Lord and I

Phil Wickham - Safe - Live On K-LOVE

On a recent drive I caught the middle of Phil Wickham - Safe, on a local radio station and loved it and its message.

Later at home I looked for a version to share here and decided on a live solo acoustic performance he did during an appearance on K-LOVE, a US based radio network.

You'll find that video embedded below (as well as the radio version with lyrics at the bottom of this post)

Safe is a moving and beautiful song whose lyrics speak to our human limitations—and that our own efforts and struggles in life lead us only to feelings of emptiness and hopelessness—all while the Love and Arms of Jesus our Mighty Lord reach out to Comfort and Save us.

Proverbs 18:10

Safe - Lyrics

To the one whose dreams have fallen all apart
And all you're left with is a tired and broken heart
I can tell by your eyes you think you're on your own
But you're not alone

Have you heard of the One who can calm the raging sea
Give sight to the blind, pull the lame up to their feet
With a love so strong it never let you go
No you're not alone

You will be safe in His arms
You will be safe in His arms
The hands that hold the world are holding your heart
This is the promise He made, He will be with you always
When everything is falling apart, you will be safe in His arms

Did you know that the voice that brings the dead to life
Is the very same voice that calls you now to rise
So hear Him now, He's calling you home
You will never be alone

You will be safe in His arms
You will be safe in His arms
The hands that hold the world are holding your heart
This is the promise He made, He will be with you always
When everything is falling apart
You will be safe in His arms

Cause these are the hands that built the mountains, the hands that calm the sea
These are the arms that hold the heavens and they are holding you and me
These are the hands that heal the leper pull the lame up to their feet
These are the arms were nailed to the cross to break our chains and set us free

You will be safe in His arms
You will be safe in His arms
The hands that hold the world are holding your heart
This is the promise He made, He will be with you always
When everything is falling apart, you will be safe in His arms
You will be safe
You will be safe
When everything is falling apart, you will be safe in His arms

POWERFUL! The Crabb Family - Through the Fire (Live)


Last night on TBN, The Crabb Family hosted a program and sang, Through the Fire—written by their father Gerald—and it reminded me how much that song speaks to me.

After a quick search I found a video (shared below) of the Crabb's performing a version of that song that is VERY powerful.  It's from 2002, so they all look very young and sing with fire and enthusiasm I've not seen in other renditions.

In fact, back on 9-29-2013, I shared a different video of the family performing the same song—but that one is a more thoughtful, stripped down version.

In today's video however, a young Jason (the eldest) leads his siblings and dad as they all sing with even more energy and passion backed by more elaborate music—leaving Jason emotionally wiping tears from his eyes in the end.

I pray their music will speak to your heart as well—and remind you of the overflowing Love, Protection, and Blessings of knowing our Lord Jesus Christ—the risen King of kings!

Through the Fire - Lyrics

So many times I've questioned certain circumstances
Or things I could not understand
And many times in trials weakness blurs my vision
And then my frustration gets so out of hand

Oh! But it's then I am reminded, I've never been forsaken
And I've never had to stand one test alone
That's when I look at all the victories, and the Spirit rises up in me
And It's through the fire my weakness is made strong

Oh! He never promised that the cross would not get heavy
And the hill would not be hard to climb
He never offered our victories without fighting
But He said help would always come in time

Just remember when you're standing in the valley of decision
And the advisory says give in
Just hold on
Our Lord will show up!
And He will take you through the fire again!

Spoken: Here's the key to it church 

I know within myself that I would surly perish
Oh! But if I trust the Mighty hand of God, He'll shield the flames again

He never promised that the cross would not get heavy
And the hill would not be hard to climb
Oh! No!
He never offered our victories without fighting
But He said help would always come in time

Just remember when you're standing in the valley of decision
And the advisory says give in
Just hold on
Our Lord will show up
And He will take you through the fire again

Just hold on
Our Lord will show up!
And He will take you through the fire again!

Zach Williams - Rescue Story


Many of us find ourselves in bewildering circumstances that challenge and confound—causing us to question ourselves and the meaning of our lives.

It's in these darkest times, when we are brought to the point of despair, that we often finally hear the patient call of our Heavenly Father in our lives.

Today's post features the "Official Lyric Video" of Zach Williams' song, Rescue Story, that echoes that experience of turning from that lonely despair to the Loving embrace of God.

Psalm 40:1-3

Rescue Story - Lyrics

There I was empty handed
Crying out from the pit of my despair
There you were in the shadows
Holding out your hand you met me there

And now where would I be without you
Where would I be, Jesus

You were the voice in the desert
Calling me out in the dead of night
Fighting my battles for me
You are my rescue story
Lifted me up from the ashes
Carried my soul from death to life
Bringing me from glory to glory
You are my rescue story

You were writing the pages
Before I had a name
Before I needed grace
Singing songs of redemption
Every time I ran away
You were louder than my shame

And now where would I be without you
Where would I be? Jesus

You were the voice in the desert
Calling me out in the dead of night
Fighting my battles for me
You are my rescue story
Lifted me up from the ashes
Carried my soul from death to life
Bringing me from glory to glory
You are my rescue story

You never gave up on me
You never gave up on me
You are my testimony

Josh Garrels - Sisu - Live!


Today's post features Josh Garrels and a video/live performance of his song, Sisu.

Simply seated on a chair, holding a guitar, and leaning into a microphone, Garrels launches into its challenging lyric, metaphorically catapulting listeners through his thoughts and feelings about his earthly experience—from the futility of life without God and a search for meaning without Him—to the realization that God alone is THE ANSWER—and He alone is Truth.

Screen Caps From The Video Below

The song floods the mind and heart with thoughts and phrases that are poetic and engaging, yet deeply moving and profound—building and building until you feel your heart stirred with the unmistakable conclusion that Garrels, like the lost and wandering sheep of Jesus' parable, has been Found at last by our Creator and LORD!

Garrels' lyrics (included under the video), as stated above, ARE challenging—but God's Love and Truth come brightly SHINNING through.

As always, I hope and pray that Garrels' music will speak to you, filling your mind, heart, and spirit with the unmistakable Peace, Comfort, Love, And Blessings of knowing our Risen Lord and Savior—Jesus the Messiah!!

Acts 13:38-39

38 “Therefore, my friends, I want you to know that through Jesus the forgiveness of sins is proclaimed to you. 39 Through him everyone who believes is set free from every sin, a justification you were not able to obtain under the law of Moses.

-------------------------------------------------

Sisu - Live! - Lyrics

By the word and command, mortal man can stand, Son of Man is the manna manifest
In the flesh and the blood, and the bones and the rocks, in the valley of the dead
The dry bones are gonna walk and talk

To the rhythm of the saints y’all, to the rhythm of the saints
And I paint it red to remember the dead, who laid down their lives for the truth

And the seed that is buried takes root, and this ignorant world will have proof
See I remember the sins of my youth, the path and the madness of unrestrained pleasure
The heavier trip it made the heavier debtor
In the deepest of dark without a wing or a feather,
The spiral closed in like a cage
Like a cage

A maze that’s amazing for days turns to rage if the page it refuses to turn
And the hopeless will hope the book burns
When the lesson it returns, but the lesson is still unlearned
See, I yearn to discern if a life can be earned or is given as a gift to the dead

See, I read and I bled and I fed to the full my soul on the sickest of sickness
Seeking the light of a saviors witness, a way that one day that I might forget this

But slave master wont permit this
Cause I’m a hooker I’m his mistress
And when I look for freedom he puts more chains on me
Strangles my hope so that I live like a zombie

What master's house can this be, that when I look for freedom he still deceives me?
What master's house can this be, that when I look for freedom he still deceives me?

If there’s a God I screamed, “Answer me!”
I didn’t expect an answer to be received, Oh no.....

But He received me!

He said

You must die, to be set free, living in the kingdom of God eternally
Open up my eyes so that I could see, and die with a cry revolutionary
Every man and woman is a witness, and we will never forget this
Truth

Undiluted, undisputed, never to be substituted, or uprooted, fully suited for the war
It’s a modernization of a timeless metaphor, and
By the boomerang we bring the beats back more

What for man, do we work exterior to core, or begin this in the spirit of the Lord
Now you could pull the chord, but the people still sing it acapella
Marching to the beat I hear their feet are in the cellar

Fear not the world cannot stop what must begin within you and me
Fire wind, holy hymn, beautiful diadem, hidden within, dyed in 
Every colors broken down, harmonize with my eyes spectrum

In the end bleeding into the source, to the wonderful Father of Lights

All the pressure and pain, produces perseverance
Purged by the flames, without interference
Produces a hope, In the glory of God

My God, I am your son, and I know that you will finish the work that you’ve begun
Homespun, grassroots, spontaneously suits the purpose, and we don’t deserve this
Life

He gives life!

You must die to be set free, living in the kingdom of God eternally
Open up my eyes so that I could see, and die with the cry revolutionary
Every man and woman is a witness, and we will never forget this
Truth

You must die to be set free, living in the kingdom of God eternally
Open up my eyes so that I could see, and die with the cry revolutionary
Every man and woman is a witness, and we will never forget this
Truth

9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved. 

---------------------------------

If you've made this decision—believed it in your heart and confessed it with your mouth—let God speak to you by reading the Bible—and seek out fellowship with others who also believe.

Pour out your heart to God in Prayer (simply speaking to Him in reverence)—asking Him to reveal Himself to you and to provide for your needs.

Life in Jesus is the best decision you will ever make.

God Bless You!

John 3:1-16

What A Beautiful Name - Lyrics

You were the Word at the beginning
One with God the Lord Most High
Your hidden glory in creation
Now revealed in You our Christ

What a beautiful Name it is
What a beautiful Name it is
The Name of Jesus Christ my King
What a beautiful Name it is
Nothing compares to this
What a beautiful Name it is
The Name of Jesus


You didn't want heaven without us
So Jesus You brought heaven down
My sin was great Your love was greater
So what could separate us now?

What a wonderful Name it is 
(Wonderful)
What a wonderful Name it is 

(Wonderful)
The Name of Jesus Christ my King 

(Christ my King)
What a wonderful Name it is 

(Wonderful)
And nothing compares to this 

(Wonderful)
What a wonderful Name it is
The Name of Jesus
What a wonderful Name it is
The Name of Jesus


Death could not hold You
The veil tore before You
You silenced the boast of sin and grave


The heavens are roaring
The praise of Your glory
For You are raised to life again


You have no rival
You have no equal
And now and forever God You reign


Yours is the Kingdom
Yours is the glory
Yours is the Name above all names!


Your name, Your name is victory
All praise, will rise to Christ our King

Your name, Your name is Victory 

(Is Victory)
All praise, will rise
To Christ our King
Your name 

(Your name)

Is victory 

(It's the Name above all names)
All praise, will rise
To Christ our King
 

What a powerful Name it is 
(Powerful)
What a powerful Name it is 

(Powerful)
The Name of Jesus Christ my King 

(Christ my King)
What a powerful Name it is 

(Powerful)
Nothing can stand against 

(Powerful)
What a powerful Name it is
The Name of Jesus


You have no rival
(There is none above the Lord...)
You have no equal
Now and forever God You reign 

(Forever)
Yours is the Kingdom 

(Yours is the Kingdom)
Yours is the glory 

(Yours is the glory)
Yours is the Name above all names.


What a powerful Name it is

(Your name is victory)
What a powerful Name it is
(All praise, will rise, to Christ our King)
What a powerful Name it is
(Your name, Your name, is victory)
What a powerful Name it is
(All praise, will rise, to our King)
What a beautiful Name it is

Callie Day & Lan Wilson - I Know The Lord Will Make A Way - Live!

Callie Day first came across my radar when she used her beautiful and powerful voice to sing a Gospel song on America's Got Talent earlier this year.

You can find my post about her appearance along with the video here:

Callie Day Takes EVERYONE To CHURCH - America's Got Talent 2019

Today—embedded below—is a video of Callie and Lan Wilson performing, I Know The Lord Will Make A Way, in 2014.

Callie Day And Lan Wilson (Screen Grab From The Video Below)

Callie is an anointed and inspiring singer, and Lan is both an amazing singer and piano player—and their exuberant performance (that appears to be a spontaneous and improvised) is such a Blessing to see and hear.

I pray their music will fill your heart with God's Comfort, Healing, Hope, and Love!

Please consider supporting Mercy Ships through Prayer and Giving.

Mercy Ships is rated 4 out of 4 stars on Charity Navigator where they provide this description—

Mercy Ships Logo


"Mercy Ships is an international faith-based organization using hospital ships to deliver free, world-class health care services, capacity building and sustainable development in the developing world. Mercy Ships provides direct medical services to those in need and holistic support to developing nations striving to make healthcare accessible for all.

Lack of access to safe surgery is killing more people per year than TB, malaria and HIV/AIDS combined. And although 315 million surgeries are performed globally each year, less than 6% of these are done in low and middle-income countries. The result is that people become disabled, lives are destroyed, and medical problems that could easily be treated such as appendicitis, hernia, fractures, obstructed labor, and congenital anomalies become deadly.

Statement Found on Mercy Ships' Website
Mercy Ships is responding to this with a two pronged approach by recruiting volunteers to meet the direct medical and surgical needs of the poor while at the same time building the capacity of local health care systems, through training and infrastructure projects, to meet the needs of their patients after the ship has sailed.

 Your donation has a huge impact in helping children and adults suffering from facial tumors, cleft lips, blindness, club feet, and more. In fact, your gift multiplies in value thanks to our dedicated volunteers—who donate their time and pay their own way—and thanks to donations from generous corporate partners."

I know the Lord Will Make A Way - Lyrics

Callie Day:

I know the Lord
Will make a way
Yes He will

He'll make a way
For me and for you
I know the Lord
He will see you through
I know the Lord
Will make a way
Oh!  Yes he well

Hallelujah!

Lan Wilson:

I know the Lord
Will make a way
Yes! He will

Said, I go to God
In secret prayer
I leave all of my burdens there

I know the Lord
Will make a way
Yes! He will

Yes, He will!
Yes, He will!
Yes, He will!
Yes, He will!

I know the Lord
Will make a way
Yes! He will

Yes!
Yes!
Yes!

I know the Lord
He'll make a way

Yes! He will
