Our King Of Peace – Christmas Songs 2017 Day 12

Our King Of Peace is an original song based on Luke 1:46-55 (Mary’s song, the Magnificat) by Wendell Kimbrough.
This video features Kimbrough’s recording of the song set to a most suitable video.

The lyrics:
My soul magnifies the Lord;
My spirit rejoices in God!
My Savior has seen his servant in need,
And behold the great things He has done:

He scatters the proud and rich;
He lifts up the humble and weak.
The kings of the earth,
He casts from their thrones
And the hungry He welcomes to feast.

Oh, behold, my Savior has come!
And my soul will tell of His praise
For He Who is strong has come to the weak
And, at last, He will reign as our King of Peace

From now to the end of time
The nations will know me as blest
For God has made new His promise of love
And mercy through Abraham’s seed

Oh, behold, my Savior has come!
And my soul will tell of His praise
For He Who is strong has come to the weak
And, at last, He will reign as our King

Oh, behold, my Savior has come!
And my soul will tell of His praise
For He Who is strong has come to the weak
And, at last, He will reign as our King of Peace

Dawning Light Of Our Salvation – Sunday Songs

Here’s a song for the first Sunday of Advent 2016.

1.
Long in darkness Israel wandered;
Long in mortal shadows, we
Walked in bondage and self-pity,
Trod in paths of sin and grief.
In the prophets’ words He told us,
Long the God of Israel spoke;
He alone in strength would save us
From the hands of all our foes.
Refrain.
Every valley be exalted!
Every mountain be made plane!
Crooked ways repent and straighten;
All creation bend in praise!
2.
He shall raise a mighty Savior;
Born of David’s lineage, He
Comes in cov’nant love to claim us
From our sins to set us free.
Light to those who dwell in darkness
Life to those from death who flee
Joy unto the earth, and gladness,
To your pathways dawning peace!
Refrain.
3.
Jesus, Lord, and mighty Savior,
David’s Son and yet his King,
Dawning light of our salvation,
Of your saving pow’r we sing!
Stand, Oh lame, and dance ye broken,
Know the Savior’s healing grace;
Come, Oh deaf and hear him singing;
Turn, Oh blind, behold his face!
Refrain.

Words: Wendell Kimbrough (c) 2012 Wendell Kimbrough
