Meditation For Preparation

The Eternal Song of Glory Part II


Written By Paul David Tripp, Come Let Us Adore Him.  p. 109-112

Read: Luke 2:1-20

The angels sang when Jesus came, but they're not the only ones who sing; we human beings sing.  We can't stop singing.  children sing, and old men sing.  People from every period of history sang.  People from every place, of every race, and of every ethnicity sing.  If you listen carefully, you will notice that we tend to sing about what has captured our hearts.  We sing about what makes us sad.  We sing about what makes us happy.  We sing about people we love.  We sing about our hopes and dreams.  We sing about what's important to us.  We sing silly songs about what makes us laugh.  We sing about what makes us angry.  We sing songs of love, exhortation, comfort, warning.  There's probably not a day in your life where you haven't sung or haven't heard a song.  We sing; the question is; what song has your heart?

Could there be any more important song than the song the angels sang of the birth of the One who came as the hope of humanity?  The song of the angels should make your heart sing.  And may the songs of Jesus written since then capture your heart not only during this Christmas season, but every day of your life.  Let the words of these songs about the birth of Jesus sink into your heart in a new way today.  And may they help your heart to find rest and satisfaction in the person, work, and presence of Jesus!

Hark the Herald Angels Sing

Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the newborn King!"
Peace on earth, and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled
Joyful, all ye nations, rise,
Join the triumph of the skies;
With th' angelic host proclaim,
"Christ is born in Bethlehem." 
Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the newborn King!"

Christ, by highest heav'n adored:
Christ, the everlasting Lord;
Late in time behold him come,
Offspring of the favored one.
Veil'd in flesh, the Godhead see;
Hail, th'incarnate Deity:
Pleased, as man, with men to dwell,
Jesus, our Emmanuel!
Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the newborn King!"

Hail! the heav'n born Prince of peace!
Hail! the Son of Righteousness!
Light and life to all he brings,
Risen with healing in his wings
Mild he lays his glory by,
Born that man no more may die:
Born to raise the sons of earth,
Born to give them second birth.
Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the newborn King!"

Joy to the World

Joy to The world! the Lord is come
Let earth receive her King
Let ev'ry heart prepare him room
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and nature sing

Joy to the world! the Savior reigns
Let men their songs employ
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat the sounding joy

He rules the world with truth and grace
And makes the nations prove The glories of His righteousness
And wonders of His love 
And wonders of His love 
And wonder wonders of His love

O Come All Ye Faithful

O come all ye faithful
Joyful and triumphant
O come ye, o come ye to Bethlehem
Come and behold Him
Born the King of angels

O come, let us adore Him
O come, let us adore Him
O come, let us adore Him
Christ the Lord

Sing choirs of angels
Sing in exultation
O sing all ye citizens
Of Heaven above
Glory to God
O glory in the highest

Silent Night

Silent Night
Holy Night
All is calm
All is bright
Round yon virgin
Mother and child
Holy infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace
