I know we can start out by saying we’re not gonna get all caught up in a “worldly celebration” of Christmas, yet even with the best of intentions we slowly allow ourselves to be sucked in.
It is my hope that if this is were you are at that I can shine the light on were you might want to be instead. This is my hands down FAVORITE Christmas song. Last year someone had it posted on youtube with beautifully fitting scenes from the movie The Nativity Story. http://www.christiancinema.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=1680
By the way, if you haven’t seen that movie yet it is well worth your time! Sadly I cannot find the youtube video anymore soooooooooooooooo……….I have put some images with the lyrics so that you could look at them while you listen to song. The words are truly profound and I pray you will take them exactly as they are intended.
Reliant K I Celebrate the Day
And with this Christmas wish is missed
The point I could convey
If only I could find the words to say to let You know how much You’ve touched my life
Because here is where You’re finding me, in the exact same place as New Year’s eve
And from a lack of my persistency
We’re less than half as close as I want to be
And the first time
That You opened Your eyes did You realize that You would be my Savior
And the first breath that left Your lips
Did You know that it would change this world forever
And so this Christmas I’ll compare the things I felt in prior years
To what this midnight made so clear
That You have come to meet me here
And I, I celebrate the day
That You were born to die
So I could one day pray for You to save my life.
