Todd Agnew will be leading worship this weekend and we can always count on him to bring a new song with great, meaningful lyrics. This time our “new” song is actually the old hymn “Hallelujah, What a Savior” that has been given new Christmas lyrics as well as an additional chorus. The lyrics are as follows:

Shining star in Heav’n so bright
Lowly tend their flocks by night
Could this be, our faith now sight?
Hallelujah, what a Savior

Gift of gifts in manger laid
Hope of men, no more delayed
God the Just, His love displayed
Hallelujah, what a Savior

Hallelujah! Praise to the One
Whose blood has pardoned me

Oh, what a Savior! Redeemer and King
Your love has rescued me

Eternal Word made flesh was He
The promise prophets longed to see
Jesus Christ our mystery
Hallelujah, what a Savior

Now the church, His praises bring
Blood-bought bride and matchless King
Heav’n and earth now join to sing
Hallelujah!, what a Savior
Hallelujah! What a Savior

The new chorus that was added is a great declaration of praise and reminds us that this little Baby Jesus that the world so anticipated, was born as a miracle but didn’t stop there. He continued on to the cross where His blood pardoned us. We can sing of his miraculous birth and His selfless sacrifice all in one song.

Baby Jesus is the same Jesus that grew to be a man who performed miracles and gave His life for us.

Christmas connection,
