Christmas Expectation

I’m laying down my expectations

for revelations

and relationship.

I trust You for salvation

and I’ll trust you for this season.

You are the reason

for all the holly jolly

but I don’t want to fall into the folly

of forgetting how you came,

forgetting you forsook fame

and came for me.

So tender and mild,

You came in sweet mercy,

as a Child

to become His people’s King.

Hear the angels sing,

oh how they rejoice,

and see the gifts the wisemen bring,

oh how they rejoice!

Rejoice, rejoice!

For our Savior has come

And Heaven was undone

As the angels pour out.

This is the One,

they sing and shout

for in a manger He lay;

praise Him today

and bring all your gifts

before the newborn Babe.
