Track Name: Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus
Come, Thou long expected Jesus
Born to set Thy people free;
From our fears and sins release us,
Let us find our rest in Thee.
Israel's strength and consolation,
Hope of all the earth Thou art;
Dear desire of every nation,
Joy of every longing heart.

Born Thy people to deliver,
Born a child and yet a King,
Born to reign in us forever,
Now Thy gracious kingdom bring.
By Thine own eternal Spirit
Rule in all our hearts alone;
By Thine all sufficient merit,
Raise us to Thy glorious throne.

O come, O come Emmanuel
Come, Lord Jesus Come

Come, Thou long expected Jesus
Born to set us prisoners free;
From our fears and sins release us,
Let us find our rest in Thee.
Israel's strength and consolation,
Hope of all the earth Thou art;
Dear desire of every nation,
Joy of every longing heart.
Track Name: The Christ is Born
It’s the love of our Lord
His mercy outpoured
A sign and a promise
And one scarlet cord

It’s the death of our regrets
It’s all forgiven debts
Whispered into Bethlehem
On a baby’s breath

Oh my God, how divine
And yet my flesh
And still my king
How can my heart contain
What I’ve beheld?
In this manger bed
Everything we’ve waited for
The Christ is born

The seed of Abraham
A thicket and a ram
A light into the darkness
That we might understand

That It’s the end of an age
The blood for the wage
The horn of salvation
Asleep on the hay

All my sins and griefs he’ll bear
And wash away forever dark despair
We are not forgotten, we are not denied
He has shown mercy and bought us
With great price
Track Name: I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day
I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play,
and wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And in despair I bowed my head;
"There is no peace on earth," I said;
"For hate is strong,
And mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!"

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
"God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;
The Wrong shall fail,
The Right prevail,
With peace on earth, good-will to men."
