Lyrics
  • My soul magnifies the Lord
  • My spirit exalts in God my Savior
 
  • For the Mighty One has done great things
  • And I will bless His Holy name
  • He brought down the proud, lifted the humble
  • Mighty is He, God my Savior
  • And I will bless His Holy name
 
  • He emptied the rich – He filled the hungry
 
  • This is my story – this is my song
  • Praisin’ my Savior – all the day long

Lyrics
  • Mary, don’t you fear – I come with tidings of joy
  • You’re highly favored – you will give birth to a boy
  • He shall be called “Wonderful, Savior!”
  • O Mary, don’t know you’re highly favored?
 
  • Mary, don’t lose heart when Joseph acts like a man
  • Just give Me time to work – he is a part of the plan
  • Which shall include a hope and future
  • Mary, don’t you know you’re highly favored?
 
  • Along the way, expect a bumpy ride
  • As if your life were strapped to a donkey hide
  • When you arrive and find you’re sleeping outside
  • I’ll be right there by your side
 
  • So Mary, sing your song – you who are chosen of God
  • To be a blessing – remember all you’ve been taught
  • Emmanuel, your Lord and Savior,
  • Has called your name and you are highly favored

  • Lyrics
  • He was chosen of Joseph’s royal line, crowned with Mary’s kisses
  • Strange new King of the manger – lain where shepherds had led their sheep
  • Sleep, little King, now sleep
 
  • And the angels appeared on high, with songs – singing “Glory to God forever!
  • Blessing, honor, and power: Yours from now, and shall ever, be”
  • Sleep, little King, now sleep
 
  • Men behold Thy light – gold they’ll bring
  • Wake, O silent night – angels sing
  • Sleep, little King – sleep, little King, now sleep
 
  • Young mother’s lullabies, humbly sung – as sure as babies cry, Christ has come to earth
  • The only virgin birth
  • One day all government shall submit – each realm will know His name, yes, and let it ring
  • For now, she whispers: “Sleep, little King – sleep, little King – now sleep”
 
  • How can such a powerless thing wear the banner of a King?
  • When are men supposed to see all that He is meant to be?
  • Israel’s hope and reckoning, rendered through His suffering
  • How can such a powerless thing wear the banner of a King?

Lyrics
  • The light, the light, the light – I’m a witness to the light
  • He who comes after me surpasses me, because He was before me
  • I am the voice of one in the desert sun; a man about his business
  • ‘Til I became a witness to
 
  • Now I tell the truth, the whole truth, so help me, God – I walked in darkness ‘til I saw…
 
  • Once upon a time, there was a world, but the One who made the world wasn’t recognized
  • By those who occupied the world
 
  • Prepare ye the way for the Lord

Lyrics
  • Emmanuel (Come nigh Messiah’s manger) – Emmanuel
  • Now go and tell how He was born
  • There was no room inside the hotel
  • Now go and tell how He was born
 
  • O Israel – O Israel
  • We sing Noël; we’ve seen the Lord
  • It was foretold by prophets of old
  • Now go and tell how He was born
 
  • Under the starlight, wonders at midnight – angels and men come nigh, come nigh
  • Drum says “pa-rum-pum” – all praise and then some!
  • Angels and men come nigh, come nigh – come nigh
 
  • Emmanuel – Emmanuel
  • Now go and tell how He was born
  • Wise men draw near when Heaven appears
  • For all is well this Christmas morn
 
  • Drum says “pa-rum-pum”
 
  • Come, come, come, come

Lyrics
  • Wisdom speaks – out in the open, she speaks
  • Words for the wise men who seek – Wisdom speaks
  • And she waits – out in the square, pleads her case
  • Calls from the walls and the gates – then she waits
 
  • Truth wears no disguise – fools hear and despise
  • Heed this word to the wise – a word to the wise
 
  • Bring your gold – the birth of this King was foretold
  • Follow the light and behold – bring your gold
  • Bring Him incense – this Priest will atone for your sins, and
  • His blood will be sacrificed – they’ll embalm Him with spices and herbs – bring Him myrrh
 
  • Wait for the light to appear – Wisdom has spoken, draw near
  • Fools will outnumber the stars – but Truth has been born in your hearts
