Christ is Born Today!

merrychristmas

Merry Christmas, everyone!  Below, I adapted the beautiful and joy-filled lyrics of an old Christmas carol, Good Christian Men, Rejoice! into a slightly more updated exclamation of praise.  You can find the original lyrics here.


Christians everywhere — rejoice!  With all your heart, your soul, your voice!

Listen!  I’ve got something to tell you!

Jesus Christ is born today!

Oxen and donkeys bow before Him as He lies in the manger now.

Christ is born today! Christ is born today!

Christians everywhere — rejoice!  With all your heart, your soul, your voice!

Now you hear of endless bliss:  Joy! Joy!

Jesus Christ was born for this reason.  

He has made the presence of God accessible by removing the barricade of our sin, and we are blessed forevermore.

Christ was born for this! Christ was born for this!

Christians everywhere — rejoice!  With all your heart, your soul, your voice!

Now we don’t have to dread Death.  We have peace!  Peace!

Jesus Christ was born to save!

He calls you each; He calls us all to come into His everlasting life.

Christ was born to save! Christ was born to save!


Christmas isn’t just about the manger.  It’s the beginning of the cross.  

Christ was born to save!
