by Mark Lajoie Copyright 2011, RN SR 679-889 [Introductory paraphrase of Luke's Christmas story] CHORUS Glory to God in the highest! Glory to God in the highest! Glory to God in the highest! As the Bridegroom weds the Bride so I will marry you My Morning Star will rise and all who seek me will find joy! [CHORUS] They'll come from every land to see my radiant light And raising up their hands their songs will split the night with joy! [CHORUS] The deaf and blind and poor have seen a mighty light For us a Child is born! Go sing it from the heights with joy! [CHORUS (2x)] Glory to God in the highest! (2x) Peace to His people on earth

by Mark Lajoie Copyright 2011, RN SR 679-889 This moment's much more than this moment The stars are pouring out light like they're new I may be just a poor, lonely shepherd But I think heaven is breaking through I leave my sheep in the valley I run to the cave, what else can I do? And there He is a poor little baby And I see heaven breaking through CHORUS God is with us! God is with us! Now He's someone just like me! (2x) God is with us! (4x) Breaking through the darkness of my long and lonely night Aching with the longing of the Song of Peace for good-willed men of right Gloria, Gloria, Gloria in excelsis Deo CHORUS I'm back with my sheep in the valley Things are the same but now I am new I may be just a poor, lonely shepherd But I know heaven's breaking through God is with us!(4x)

O Holy Night! Placide Cappeau, 1847 tr. by John S. Dwight copyright Public Domain 1. Oh, holy night, the stars are brightly shining; It is the night of the dear Savior’s birth! Long lay the world in sin and error pining, Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth. A thrill of hope, the weary soul rejoices, For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn. Fall on your knees, oh, hear the angel voices! Oh, night divine, oh, night when Christ was born! Oh, night divine, oh, night, oh, night divine! 2. Led by the light of faith serenely beaming, With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand. So led by the light of a star sweetly gleaming, Here came the wise men from Orient land. The King of kings lay in a lowly manger, In all our trials born to be our Friend! He knows our need—to our weakness He is no stranger. Behold your King; before Him lowly bend! Behold your King; before Him lowly bend! Christ is our Lord! Oh, praise His name forever! His pow’r and glory evermore proclaim! His pow’r and glory evermore proclaim!

about

We started in 1976, and, from the beginning, we specialized in Christmas, doing special Christmas concerts every year for years! We wrote a lot of original Christian songs and recorded several of them on multi-track for a cassette release in 1984 - those are here. Plus, we include some special live versions. Our prayer for you is that you will experience a new birth, and have a very Merry Christmas!
