THE REAL CHRISTMAS STORY

David Ravenhill

WRAPPED IN A VIRGIN’S WOMB

GOD’S PRECIOUS GIFT TO MAN

CREATOR OF THE UNIVERSE

CONTRACTED TO A SPAN

BORN IN A MANGER’S STALL

PLACED THERE UPON THE HAY

FROM HEAVEN’S ETERNAL THRONE

THE KING OF GLORY LAY

SOME HEARD THE ANGELS SING

SOME FOLLOWED HEAVEN’S STAR

THEY CAME TO WORSHIP HIM

FROM FIELDS AND LANDS AFAR

ONE DAY THIS BABE WOULD STAND

AND CLAIM HIS RIGHT TO REIGN

HIS KINGDOM COME HIS WILL BE DONE

HIS MESSAGE AND REFRAIN

BUT FEW WOULD HEED HIS CALL

THE PRICE TOO STEEP TO PAY

TO DIE TO SELF AND FOLLOW HIM

THEY SIMPLY TURNED AWAY

WE WILL NOT HAVE THIS MAN

RULE OVER US THEY CRIED

AWAY WITH HIM, AWAY WITH HIM

LET HIM BE CRUCIFIED

A SWORD WOULD PIERCE HER HEART

HOW GREAT WAS MARY’S PAIN

SHE WATCHED GOD’S SON AND HERS

DIE ON THAT CROSS OF SHAME

BUT GOD WAS IN IT ALL

THEIR HOPE IN ASHES LAY

BUT SORROW TURNED TO JOY

ON RESURRECTION DAY

FOREVER MORE HE REIGNS

TRIUMPHANT ORE HIS FOES

THE BABE OF BETHLEHEM

OUT OF THE GRAVE AROSE

HIS REIGN WILL KNOW NO END

HIS KINGDOM NEVER CEASE

JESUS THE KING OF KINGS

THE GLORIOUS PRINCE OF PEACE

NO MATTER WHAT YOUR STATE

REJOICE MY FRIEND IT’S TRUE

HE WAS BORN TO DIE FOR ALL

FOR ME, AND YES, FOR YOU!

CHRISTMAS MEANS MUCH MORE

THAN GIFTS AND LIGHTED TREE

A REASON TO GIVE THANKS TO HIM

WHO GAVE HIS LIFE FOR ME

ONE DAY WE’LL SEE HIS FACE

WHAT GLORY THAT WILL BE

AND WORSHIP HIM FOREVERMORE

THE KING OF CALVARY
