He lives. I know that thousands of years ago, in a meager stable a virgin gave birth to a baby boy. His life and death changed the world, and they have changed my life. They can change yours.
Jesus Christ is my savior, my redeemer, and my friend.
He is my comfort, my salvation, and my grace.
He is my lord, my confidant, and my god.
A Shepherds Tale: The Forgotten Carols
The flock was more than peaceful, the night was dark and deep
The stillness wrapped around me; I drifted off to sleep
And when my friends awoke me, oh, what a tale they had to tell
They said the angels told them bout a newborn King
They had a star to guide them
They heard the heavens sing
They said that when they found Him they knew they’d never be the same
Somehow I did believe them,
Though everything I knew said I should not believe them
This story can’t be true
But there was something magic in the air
That made me feel as if I had been there
I asked a thousand questions
Their answers startled me
The more I heard, the more I thought I knew
This cannot be
And then the struggle started, my head was wrestling with my heart.
Why would a God from Heaven
Come to the world this way?
Why in a lowly stable
Would the Messiah lay?
I shook my head and asked them
To tell the story one more time
Yes I did believe them
Though I’d not seen a thing
I did not go to Bethlehem
Or hear the angels sing
But there was something magic
In the air
That made me feel as if
I had been there
I knew that as the world moves on
There would be more stories
just like mine
About the souls who’ve chosen
In something that they never
got to see
Do you think you’ll join us
Though you’ve not seen a thing?
You were not there in Bethlehem
To hear the angels sing
But if you feel the spirit in the air
Then just like me you’d know
That He was here
He was here
The King of kings
And Lord of lords was here
