One Christmas Amazed


One Christmas Amazed

There’s a Christmas for Santa

And a Christmas for Elves

And a Christmas for stores

That are filling their shelves

There’s Christmas on TV

And for fresh falling snow

And trees decorated with lights that can glow

But in the midst of the ruckus that is filling our lanes

Is there room for the Child

Who gave Christmas its name?

 

Is there space at our table for a forgotten lost son?

Is there a place on our lists for someone with no home?

Is there hope in our hearts for the broken and shamed?

Or are we too busy to remember their names?

 

As you put up your tree then on top place the star

That remembers the kings who came from so far

Who knelt and rejoiced back in old Bethlehem

As they opened their gifts in their worship for Him

Take a moment to pray with a heart full of praise

For on Christmas was born God’s true grace that amazed

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
