EVERYTHING BELONGS TO GOD

The earth and everything in it is the Lord’s
The world and all its people belong to Him.
For He laid on the seas, the earth’s foundation
And built it on the ocean depths.

Open up, ancient gates!
Open up, ancient doors,
And let the King of glory enter.
Who is the King of glory?
The Lord, strong and mighty;
The Lord, invincible in battle.

Who may climb the mountain of the Lord?
Who may stand in His holy place?
Only those whose hands and hearts are pure,
Who don’t trust in idols and never tell lies.

Open up, ancient gates!
Open up, ancient doors,
And let the King of glory enter.
Who is the King of glory?
The Lord of Heaven’s Armies—
He is the King of glory.

They will receive the Lord’s blessing
And vindication from God their saviour.
Such people may seek You
and worship in Your presence, O God.

“Blessing and honour
And glory and power
Belong to the one
Sitting on the throne
And to the Lamb
Forever and ever.”

THIS IS CHRISTMAS, BECAUSE OF JESUS CHRIST!

Had we forgotten something?
Beyond the trees with presents below,
The lights, glitter and mistletoes
Have we lost the reason
Why we celebrate each year?
What is Christmas without Christ?

Remember how the story goes,
Beneath the star, one holy night,
The greatest gift in swaddling clothes.
The shepherds heard the angels sing,
The wise men brought the offerings,
Peace on Earth began in Bethlehem.

What is Christmas?
If there was no babe in the manger;
If no angels sang from the realms of glory;
If there was no peace on earth.
What is Christmas without Christ?

There’d be no Gloria in Excelsis Deo
No Joy to the world
And no Feliz Navidad

This is Christmas,
It’s all about the Savior in the manger.
This is Christmas,
Because of Jesus Christ!

And so this is Christmas
For weak and for strong
For rich and the poor ones
For black and for white
For yellow and red ones
Let’s stop all the fight…

THE REAL MEANING OF CHRISTMAS

A long time ago, one dark night
A star in the East shining bright
Shepherds sitting out on a hill
Watching their sheep lying still
The wise men began to ride on their camels
Didn’t know how far and wide
Followed the star to a stall
There found the greatest gift of all

Over the years things have changed
We have lost the real meaning
Of Christmas and one special night
Amidst the lights, glitter and golden ribbons,
We forget about the child, born on a night so cold.
Instead of celebrating his birth
And praising his presence in the earth
We’ve turned this day into a fairy tale.

God loved His own
And provided a way—the only Way
For us to spend eternity with Him
Gave His one and only Son
To take our punishment for our sins.
He paid the price in full,
And we are free from condemnation
when we accept that free gift of love.

The true meaning of Christmas is
The celebration of this incredible act of love.
For this is the only reason that
We should celebrate this day,
To become focused on anything else,
Would take the meaning away.
Merry Christmas,don’t mean the same
if it ain’t in Jesus’ name.

MOTHER

The first person,
I get along with,
Holding her hand

A source of love,
Trust, sympathy,
Forgiveness and mercy

The greatest disciplinarian,
A teacher of love
And compassion

The bank, where
All my hurts, worries and
Sorrows are deposited

The truest friend,
I have when all trials
Fall upon me

No matter what
She asked me to do,
Or not to do

She had my
Best interest
In her mind

She wasn’t trying
To keep me
From having fun

She was trying
To protect me
From being hurt

OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN

Hear our cry
We are Your children
We need Your mercy
Hear us as we pray

Our father in Heaven
May Your holy name be honoured
Your kingdom come soon
Your will be done on earth as in Heaven

Give us today the food we need
See our hearts
And forgive our sins
As we forgive others

Keep us from being tempted
And rescue us from evil
For thine is the kingdom
And the power and the glory

Forever we sing aloud
Holy is the Lord Almighty
The earth is filled with Your glory
Together we sing and pray, Amen.

THE CREED I BELIEVE

Our God, the father Almighty,
Maker of Heaven and earth,
Of all things visible and invisible

For us men and for our salvation
Came down from Heaven,
The only begotten son of God

By the giver of life, the Holy Ghost,
Was incarnate of the Virgin Mary
And became man

I believe in God, the father
I believe in Jesus, the son
I believe in the Holy Spirit
Our God is three in one
I believe in the virgin birth
And in the life everlasting

Suffered for our sake
Crucified, died and was buried,
Descended into Hell

Rose again from the dead
On the third day and
Ascended into Heaven

Sitteth at the right hand of God,
Will come again in glory
To judge the living and the dead

I believe in the holy church
I believe in the Saint’s communion
And in the forgiveness of sins
I believe in the resurrection
That we will rise again
And His kingdom will have no end.
