Born This Day

There were shepherds abiding in the fields
Keeping watch over their flocks by night
An angel of the Lord came down and glory shone around
“Don’t be afraid,” he said
but they were scared out of their minds
“Glad tidings of great joy I bring to you and all man kind”

Because he’s born this day
Stable, manger, hay
He’s born this day
Emmanuel: God’s with us
He’s born this day
Can you hear the oxen moo?
It’s Christmas day
What does it mean to you?

There were wise men traveling from the East
A star had brought them the news
They came to Bethlehem to find the new king of the Jews
The shepherd king of Israel’s people as the prophet had foretold
They offered him their precious gifts; myrrh, frankincense and gold.

He’s born this day
Can you hear the angels sing?
He’s born this day
Emmanuel: God’s with us
He’s born this day
Heaven’s praises ring
It’s Christmas day
What does it mean to you?
Track Name: The Garden
A man standing in a garden,
I look up, I look around
I see a new creation
Good things are surrounding me

Face to face with the gardener,
he says it’s all for me
Rivers and fields and plants and creatures
Just stay away from that one tree

Chorus 1
Woah, this is how it started, from love we were created.

The gardener made me a helper
‘cause it’s not good to be alone
We’re built to live, to love, to honour
With Him as our cornerstone

Chorus 2
Woah, this is how it started, from love we were created.
Woah, with a loving heart imparted, for love we were created.

I know the garden is perfect
But could it be even better
If we were more like the gardener
If we tried to be the gardener?

Chorus 3
Woah, this is how it started, from love we were created.
Woah, with a loving heart imparted, for love we were created.
Woah, it was perfect in the garden, why did we try to change it?
Woah, please don’t leave us stranded, a people disconnected.
