It's About Jesus

Words and music: George Pendergrass, Gary Miller, and Chris Dowdy © 1995 Anthony K. Music (ASCAP)/Clifty Music (BMI)
Lead: Nathan Miller and Kimberly Lancaster

Lyrics:

Chorus 1:
I don't care what my friends say
When Christmas comes around
I don't care what my friends say
I really know what it's all about
It's not the toys, It's not the sweets
It's not Rudolph or stocking treats
It's not the snow, It's not the lights
Christmas Trees or "A Wonderful Life"
I know what it's all about (about Jesus)
I know what it's all about (about Jesus)

They say "Christmas is a holiday"
Time of toys and cheer
That's the time we look for old St. Nick
And his eight reindeer
All this talk of Christmas sounds so nice
But it ain't nothin', nothin' without Christ
I know what it's all about (about Jesus)
I know what it's all about (about Jesus)

Chorus 2:
I don't care what ya say
When Christmas comes around
I don't care what ya say
I really know what it's all about
It's not the toys, It's not the sweets
It's not Rudolph or stocking treats
It's not the snow, It's not the lights
Christmas Trees or "A Wonderful Life"
I know what it's all about (about Jesus)
I know what it's all about (about Jesus)

But I say, "Christmas is when Jesus came"
Time we celebrate
The little baby born in Bethlehem
The one who came to save
To celebrate on Christmas day is fine
But when you know Him it's Christmas all the time
Do you know what it's all about (about Jesus)
Let me tell you (know) what it's all about (It's about Jesus, about Jesus, It's about Jesus)
I know what it's all about (about Jesus)
I know what it's all about (It's about Jesus, about Jesus, It's about Jesus)

Christmas is just another day
It just happens every year
Nothing very special about it
No one cares I fear
True this day and every day of our lives
Ain't nothin', nothin', without Christ

Do you know what it's all about (I know, I know, about Jesus, I know about it)
Let me tell you (know) what it's all about (I know, I know, about Jesus, I know about it)

Chorus 3:
I don't care what my friends say
When Christmas comes around
I don't care what my friends say
I really know what it's all about
It's not the toys, It's not the sweets
It's not Rudolph or stocking treats
It's not the snow, It's not the lights
Christmas Trees or "A Wonderful Life"
I know what it's all about (about Jesus, I know about it)
I know what it's all about (about Jesus, I know about it)

Jesus

This song also appeared on Family Christmas by The Acappella Company.
Guest Vocals: Acappella (Robert C. Guy, Duane Adams, Steve Reischl, and Gary Moyers)
Lead: Melissa Lancaster

Lyrics:

She stood before the angel
Amazed at what she heard (she heard)
Wondering of the turth she finds
Hidden in His words

He said, "Mary you have been blessed of God
You'll not forget this day (blessed holy day)
You're the mother of the Promised One"
And you could hear her say

Chorus:
Holy Lord (NoŽl, NoŽl, NoŽl, NoŽl)
Holy Lord (NoŽl, NoŽl, NoŽl, NoŽl)
Holy Lord (NoŽl, NoŽl, NoŽl, NoŽl)
Holy Lord (NoŽl, NoŽl, NoŽl, NoŽl)

They stood upon the hillside
Watchmen of the night
Guarding very patiently
Bathed in soft starlight (soft starlight)

Then angels appeared in majesty
Bringing joy to make the heavens ring (heavens ring)
A Savior's born in Bethlehem
And men and angels sing

Repeat Chorus

There is so much more to Christmas (so much more)
Than what we see each year
More than a holiday
Much more than it appears

So we stand among the many
And lift our voice as one (lift our voice in song)
Like Mary we know the truth is found
Only through her Son (holy Son of God)

Generations celebrate
The day that Christ was born (Jesus Christ was born)
But since we found the grace of God
It's Christmas every morn

Jesus (Holy Lord (NoŽl, NoŽl, NoŽl, NoŽl))
Blessed Messiah (Holy Lord (NoŽl, NoŽl, NoŽl, NoŽl))
Jesus (Holy Lord (NoŽl, NoŽl, NoŽl, NoŽl))
Precious Lord (Holy Lord (NoŽl, NoŽl, NoŽl, NoŽl))
Jesus (Holy Lord (NoŽl, NoŽl, NoŽl, NoŽl))
The reason for the season (Holy Lord (NoŽl, NoŽl, NoŽl, NoŽl))
Jesus (Holy Lord (NoŽl, NoŽl, NoŽl, NoŽl))
God's one and only Son (Holy Lord (NoŽl, NoŽl, NoŽl, NoŽl))

Scriptural Reference:

"You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus.  He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High.

Merry Christmas (Merry Christmas)
Merry Christmas (Merry Christmas)
Merry Christmas (Merry Christmas)
Merry Christmas (Merry Christmas)

Here we come a-caroling among the leaves so green
Here we come a-wondering so fair to be seen
Love and joy come to you, and to you your carol too
And God bless you and send you a happy new year
And God send you a happy new year

Said the night wind to the little lamb
"Do you see what I see? (Do you see what I see?)"
Way up in the sky little lamb
"Do you see what I see? (Do you see what I see?)"

A star, a star
Dancing in the night
With a tail as big as a kite
With a tail as big as a kite

Silent night, holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon Virgin Mother and Child
Holy Infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace

Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas

Angels we have heard on high
Sweetly singing o'er the plains
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strains

Gloria in excelsis Deo
Gloria in excelsis Deo

O come, let us adore Him
O come, let us adore Him
O come, let us adore Him
Christ the Lord

Here we come a-caroling among the leaves so green
Here we come a-wondering so fair to be seen

Joy to the world, The Lord is come
Let earth receive her King
Let ev'ry heart prepare Him room
And heav'n and nature sing
And heav'n and nature sing
And heav'n and heav'n and nature sing

(As 3-fold round)
Hark! the herald angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King!"
Peace on earth, and mercy mild
God and sinners reconciled"

Joyful, all ye nations, rise
Join the triumph of the skies
With th' angelic host proclaim,
"Christ is born in Bethlehem"
Hark! the herald angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King!"

Love and joy come to you, and to you your carol too
And God bless you and send you a happy new year
And God send you a happy, may God send you a happy
He will send you a happy new year

That was wonderful.
Hey Grandmas and Grandpa!  Merry Christmas
C'mon in here where it's warm - I have supper on the table

Lead: Melissa Lancaster and Nathan Miller

Lyrics:

Spoken Vocal:
 John 3:16:  "For God so loved the world that he gave his only son, that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life."

Here we go
God so loved the world that he gave his only son (JESUS)
That who does believe will not die but go to heaven
If you want to live forever then be born again
Not just born of the water but the Spirit placed within
You see the plan of action on the day of Pentecost (ACTION)
People screamin' out loud, "What will we do if we're lost?"
You gotta repent and be baptized in the Name of the Lord
You see the gift (the gift that gives more) of the Holy Spirit is the gift that gives more

Chorus 1:
Give the gift that keeps on givin' (keep givin' it)
Give the gift that keeps on givin' (Come on)
Give the gift that keeps on givin' (Everybody)
Give the gift of Jesus Christ
Give the gift that keeps on givin' (keep givin' it)
Eternally in heaven livin' (gift) (Come on)
Give the gift that keeps on givin' (Everybody)
Give the gift of Jesus Christ

Religion today seems to hurt instead of help (give)
Commercialized and televised, cheap grace is what they sell (give)
The life of a disciple of Christ is one of love (give)
The mind of a disciple is one that's set on things above (give)
So fix your eyes on Jesus from the cradle to the grave (give)
Share the light, Lord, Lamb, the One who came to save (give)

Repeat Chorus 1

Give

Jesus is the One who came to save (and we follow)
The example of the gift he gave (gave His life for all)
For the gifts you give or may receive (family and friends)
Be thankful to the One in whom you believe (we believe)

Chorus 2:
Give the gift (keep givin' it)
Give the gift (Come on) (JESUS)
Give the gift (Everybody)
Give the gift of Jesus Christ
Give the gift (keep givin' it)
Eternally (Come on) (JESUS)
Give the gift (Everybody)
Give the gift of Jesus Christ

Give the gift that keeps on givin' (Come on) (JESUS)

Lyrics:

Chorus 1:
Wise men still seek Him and follow His star
Kings come to worship from near and from far
Like Christmas day He'll be born in your heart
Seeking the Savior - a wise one you are

God looked at the hearts of men
He loved us every one
He saw the results of sin
Said something must be done
It's dark and we need a light
Our blinded eyes to see
The Savior is Jesus Christ
Salvation full and free

Repeat Chorus

God said to be born again
That's why he sent His Son
And when He is born within
It's Christmas all year long
We're sharing the gift of life
With friends and family
We're learning to do what's right
And live eternally

Wise men still seek Him and follow His star

This day is such a special day
The day of Jesus' birth (The Savior's birth)
And He loves you in a special way (He died for you)
His blood is what you're worth

Be wise (Be wise) - be smart (be smart)
Seek Jesus (Seek Jesus) with all of your heart (with all of your heart)
Rejoice (Rejoice) - be glad (be glad)
