Merry Christmas

Welcome to Our World (Chris Rice)

Tears are falling, hearts are breaking
How we need to hear from God
You’ve been promised, we’ve been waiting

Welcome Holy Child
Welcome Holy Child

Hope that you don’t mind our manger
How I wish we would have known
But long-awaited Holy Stranger
Make Yourself at home
Please make Yourself at home
Bring Your peace into our violence
Bid our hungry souls be filled
Word now breaking Heaven’s silence

Welcome to our world
Welcome to our world

Fragile finger sent to heal us
Tender brow prepared for thorn
Tiny heart whose blood will save us
Unto us is born
Unto us is born
So wrap our injured flesh around You
Breathe our air and walk our sod
Rob our sin and make us holy

Perfect Son of God
Perfect Son of God
Welcome to our world

  9. This song always makes me cry. To think that our Saviour knew everything that he would go through on Earth and came anyway leaves me speechless.

    Thank you for this. And for including me. You have helped me and touched my heart in many more ways than you know over the past year.

  18. Thanks Karla! This is one of my favorite Christmas songs ever! My son and I watched The Nativity Story (the movie the clips are from) Christmas morning before opening our gifts – to remind us of the ultimate gift and the true meaning of Christmas. Blessings to you and your family. LeAnn
