~ While The World Lay Sleeping ~

Have we ever pondered long
On where we might have been,
When the baby Jesus came
As Savior, Lord, for you and me.

While the world was fast asleep
And the little Jesus crept inside,
Would we be there to welcome
With arms out open wide.

In the darkness of that normal night
When the Father gave His child,
To give the world new life
Would our heart have been in kind.

As the heaven's all exploded
When Jesus left His throne behind,
Would we have been with shepherds
Watching for divine.

Or might we be with wisemen
The few watching from the east,
When God gave all His love
For the greatest to the least.

While all the earth was darkened
Eyes not longing so to see,
Would we be looking for the promise
God's life for you and me.

Would we believe when shadows loom
And hope for all is lost,
That here was heaven's answer
As echoed forth angelic host.

Would we be looking to an earthly king
And miss the star on high,
Or would we bring our heart to Him
And know God has arrived.

Soft Whispers just for you from

Come to the Savior, just come as you are;
Come worship God's Son, you don't need a star.
Come worship the king, wherever you go,
All that you are, He already knows
Come to the Father, this very night,
Humbled and awed, kneel at His side.
Come to the Lord; He's reaching with love,
Watching your heart, He wants you to come.
Come as the wise men, rest at His feet,
Your gift of love, your Savior to meet.
Come and believe Him, this Christmas morn...
Come now with joy, for Christ has been born!


 

Breath Of Heaven
I am waiting
In a silent prayer
I am troubled
By the load I bear
In a world as cold as stone
Must I walk this path alone
Be with me now
Be with me now

Breath of Heaven
Hold me together
Be forever near me
Breath of Heaven
Breath of Heaven
Lighten my darkness
Pour over me your holiness
For You are holy
Breath of Heaven
