Behold the Lamb of God

Hi friends!   It’s Christmas Eve and I feel compelled to post what else but song lyrics.  Simple and poetic, they speak to more than just a baby Jesus in a manger, but to the God who made himself nothing.  Merry Christmas, y’all! 

Andrew Peterson – Gather Round Ye Children, from Behold the Lamb of God

Gather round, ye children, come

Listen to the old, old story

Of the power of death undone

By an infant born of glory

Son of God, Son of Man

Gather round, remember now

How creation held its breath

How it let out a sigh

And it filled up the sky with the angels

Son of God, Son of Man

So sing out with joy for the brave little boy

Who was God but he made himself nothing

Well he gave up his pride and he came here to die like a man

Therefore God exalted him to the place of highest praises

And he gave him the name above every name

That at the very name of Jesus

Son of God

So in heaven and earth and below

Every knee would bow and worship

And every tongue would proclaim

That Jesus, he reigns with the angels
