Christmas Time Is Here (by Daniela Andrade)

*

Christmas time is here
Happiness and cheer
Fun for all that children call
Their favorite time of the year

Snowflakes in the air
Carols everywhere
Olden times and ancient rhymes
Of love and dreams to share

Sleigh bells in the air
Beauty everywhere
Yuletide by the fireside
And joyful memories there

Christmas time is here
We’ll be drawing near
Oh, that we could always see
Such spirit through the year
Oh, that we could always see
Such spirit through the year…

Christmas Offering

*

Over the skies of Bethlehem appeared a star
While angels sang to lowly shepherds
Three Wisemen seeking truth they traveled from afar
Hoping to find the child from heaven
Falling on their knees they bow before the humble Prince of Peace

We bring an offering of worship to our King
No one on earth deserves the praises that we sing
Jesus may You receive the honor that You’re due
O Lord I bring an offering to You

The sun cannot compare to the glory of Your love
There is no shadow in Your presence
No mortal man would dare to stand before Your throne
Before the Holy One of heaven
It’s only by Your blood
It’s only through Your mercy
Lord, I come

We bring an offering to You
We are an offering to You
We are an offering to You, Jesus

We bring an offering to You
We are an offering to You

Soul of My Savior

*

Soul of my Savior sanctify my breast,
Body of Christ, be thou my saving guest,
Blood of my Savior, bathe me in thy tide,
wash me with waters gushing from thy side.

Strength and protection may thy passion be,
O blessed Jesus, hear and answer me;
deep in thy wounds, Lord, hide and shelter me,
so shall I never, never part from thee.

Guard and defend me from the foe malign,
in death’s dread moments make me only thine;
call me and bid me come to thee on high
where I may praise thee with thy saints for ay.

Laudate, Laudate Dominum

*

Laudate, Laudate Dominum,
omnes gentes, laudate dominum.
Exsultate, jubilate per anos Dominia, omnes gentes.
We praise you, we praise your holy name,
God of justice, eternally the same.
May our living be thanksgiving,
rejoicing in your name now and always.

In the faith of Christ we walk hand in hand,
light before our path as the Lord has planned;
shining the torch of faith in our land:
in the name of Christ Jesus.

In the name of Christ we will spread the seed;
share the Word of God with all those in need,
faithful in thought and word and deed:
in the name of Christ Jesus.

In the Church of Christ, we answer the Savior’s call,
serving as he showed us, both great and small,
sharing the Lord’s compassion for all:
in the name of Christ Jesus.

Bind Us Together Lord

*

Refrain;
Bind us together, Lord, Bind us together
With cords that cannot be broken.
Bind us together, Lord,
Bind us together,
Bind us together with love.

There is only one God,
There is only one King;
There is only one Body,
That is why we sing:

Made for the glory of God,
Purchased by His precious Son;
Born with the right to be clean,
For Jesus the victory has won.

You are the family of God,
You are the promise divine;
You are God’s chosen desire,
You are the glorious new wine.
