You’re Here

I love Christmas music.

(Of course, there’s not much I don’t love about Christmas– Christmas movies, Christmas cookies, Christmas decorations, Christmas presents…what’s not to love?)

Of course the songs about snow and holly jolly times are fun, but I especially like to listen to the songs about a young mother and a small baby swaddled in a manger.  Each year it seems, I find a song around Christmas that just kinda becomes “it” for me, and I listen to it over and over as the holiday approaches.

Isn’t it beautiful? Her voice is amazing, and the reflections on God becoming baby are so real to me right now as a I hold my own new baby boy… I love Christmas music.

Hold on now, I gotta take a deep breath
I don’t know what to say when I look in your eyes
You made the world before I was born
Here I am holding You in my arms tonight

Noel, Noel
Jesus our Emmanuel

You’re here
I’m holding You so near
I’m staring into the face of my Savior
King and Creator
You could’ve left us on our own
But You’re here

Don’t know how long I’m gonna have You for
But I’ll be watching when You change the world
Look at Your hands, they’re still so small
Someday You’re gonna stretch them out and save us all

Noel, Noel, God with us Emmanuel

You’re here, I’m holding You so near oooh oh
I’m staring into the face of my Savior
King and Creator
You could’ve left us on our own
Bbut you’re here, you’re here

Someday I’m gonna look back on this
The night that God became a baby boy
Someday You’re gonna go home again,
But You leave your spirit and flood the world with joy

You’ll be here, I’m holding You so near
I’m staring into the face of my Savior, King and Creator
You could’ve left me on my own, but you’re here… You’re here
Hallelujah, You’re here
Hallelujah, You’re here
