Jesus, What A Wonderful Child by Sandra McCracken and Friends – Christmas Songs 2019 Day 33

The name of Jesus is the focus during December 3 in the twelve days of Christmas (in some parts of the church).
Sandra McCracken’s version of Jesus, What A Wonderful Child (feat. Cindy Morgan & Gabe Dixon) seems a suitable song for the occasion.

The lyrics:
Refrain 1.
Jesus, Jesus, oh, what a wonderful child
Jesus, Jesus, so lowly, meek and mild
New life, new hope to all He brings
Won’t you listen to the angels sing
Glory, glory, glory
To the newborn King
Refrain 2.
Jesus, Jesus, oh, what a wonderful child
Jesus, Jesus, so lowly, meek and mild
New life, new hope, new joy He brings
Won’t you listen while the angels sing
Glory, glory, glory
To the newborn King
Verse.
It was heralded by the angels
Born in a lowly manger
The virgin Mary chosen as His mother
And Joseph was His earthly father
Three wise men came from afar
They were guided by a shining star
To see the baby where He lay
In a manger filled with hay
Bridge/Tag.
New life, new hope, to all He brings
Won’t you listen to the angels sing
Glory, glory, glory
To the newborn King
Glory, glory, glory
To the newborn King
Glory, glory, glory
To the newborn King

Justice Will Roll Down by Sandra McCracken – Christmas Songs 2019 Day 6

Justice Will Roll Down, by Sandra McCracken.
This recording is from her Steadfast Live album.
A light shines in the darkness.
The light will return, creation will be renewed, the darkness will be gone forever.

The lyrics:
Verse 1.
Oh my love, you have grown so cold
To the world outside, to the house next door
She who has been loved much, has so much to give
Mercy is the fragrance, of the broken
Chorus.
Justice will roll down, oh justice will roll down
From high upon those mountains with a mighty river sound
It will roll down
It will roll down
Verse 2.
Oh my child, I will be your light
In your secret pain, in the dark of night
No enemy, no conqueror, will steal your life from me
I am your salvation, and your victory
Chorus.
Verse 3.
Soon oh soon, when the trumpet sounds
Every knee shall bend, every heart will pound
I have made a new world, where the servant is the King
Oppression will be over, and the slave set free
Chorus.

In Feast Or Fallow – Sunday Songs

Sandra McCracken’s In Feast Or Fallow is a modern hymn that seems to resonate with a lot of circumstances that people I know are going through.
Here’s an acoustic version by Sandra.

The lyrics:
1.
When the fields are dry, and the winter is long
Blessed are the meek, the hungry, the poor
When my soul is downcast, and my voice has no song
For mercy, for comfort, I wait on the Lord
Chorus.
In the harvest feast or the fallow ground,
My certain hope is in Jesus found
My lot, my cup, my portion sure
Whatever comes, we shall endure
Whatever comes, we shall endure
2
On a cross of wood, His blood was outpoured
He Rose from the ground, like a bird to the sky
Bringing peace to our violence, and crushing death’s door
Our Maker incarnate, our God who provides.
Chorus.
Bridge.
O come, Emmanuel
Come, o come, Emmanuel
Verse 3:
When the earth beneath me crumbles and quakes
Not a sparrow falls, nor a hair from my head
Without His hand to guide me, my shield and my strength
In joy or in sorrow, in life or in death
Chorus
