Why in the world would the Father give us the extravagant gift of the Son? Our need must be great. His love must be great. And our shared mission must be great.
Joy to the world, the Lord has come, let earth receive her King.
O come, O Branch of Jesse's stem, unto your own and rescue them! From depths of hell Your people save, and give them victory over the grave.
Hail the heaven-born Prince of Peace! Hail the Sun of Righteousness! Light and life to all He brings, risen with healing in His wings.
Chains shall He break, for the slave is our brother, and in His name all oppression shall cease.
