Song based on the Bible verse:
Isaiah 63:16
Doubtless You are our Father,
Though Abraham was ignorant of us,
And Israel does not acknowledge us.
You, O Lord, are our Father;
Our Redeemer from Everlasting is Your name.

1
We praise You O God our Redeemer Creator
In grateful devotion our tribute we bring
We lay it before You we kneel and adore You
We bless Your holy name glad praises we sing

2
We worship You God of our fathers we bless
Through life’s storm and tempest our Guide You have been
When perils o’ertake us You will not forsake us
And with Your help O Lord our battles we win

3
With voices united our praises we offer
And gladly our songs of thanksgiving we raise
With You Lord beside us Your strong arm will guide us
To You our great Redeemer forever be praise

1
Tell me the story of Jesus
Write on my heart every word
Tell me the story most precious
Sweetest that ever was heard
Tell how the angels in chorus
Sang as they welcomed His birth
Glory to God in the highest!
Peace and good tidings to earth

Tell me the story of Jesus
Write on my heart every word
Tell me the story most precious
Sweetest that ever was heard

2
Fasting alone in the desert
Tell of the days that are past
How for our sins He was tempted
Yet was triumphant at last
Tell of the years of His labor
Tell of the sorrow He bore
He was despised and afflicted
Homeless rejected and poor

Tell me the story of Jesus
Write on my heart every word
Tell me the story most precious
Sweetest that ever was heard

3
Tell of the cross where they nailed Him
Writhing in anguish and pain
Tell of the grave where they laid Him
Tell how He liveth again
Love in that story so tender
Clearer than ever I see:
Stay let me weep while you whisper
Love paid the ransom for me

Tell me the story of Jesus
Write on my heart every word
Tell me the story most precious
Sweetest that ever was heard

Song based on the Bible verse:
Luke 2:8-9
8 Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid.

1
O sing a song of Bethlehem
Of shepherds watching there
And of the news that came to them
From angels in the air
The light that shone on Bethlehem
Fills all the world today
Of Jesus’ birth and peace on earth
The angels sing alway

2
O sing a song of Nazareth
Of sunny days of joy
O sing of fragrant flowers’ breath
And of the sinless Boy
For now the flowers of Nazareth
In every heart may grow
Now spreads the fame of His dear name
On all the winds that blow

3
O sing a song of Galilee
Of lake and woods and hill
Of Him who walked upon the sea
And bade its waves be still
For though like waves on Galilee
Dark seas of trouble roll
When faith has heard the Master’s word
Falls peace upon the soul

4
O sing a song of Calvary
Its glory and dismay
Of Him who hung upon the tree
And took our sins away
For He who died on Calvary
Is risen from the grave
And Christ our Lord by heaven adored
Is mighty now to save
