READ:  Matthew 1:1, 18-25


In 2012, Larry preached a sermon from the genealogy of Jesus found in Matthew 1. That sermon and the sermon from the following Sunday sparked an idea for a new hymn that would express the glorious significance of the way in which God the Father brought His Son into this world. This Sunday we will be examining the Scriptures that unpack the importance that Jesus is the Son of Abraham, the Son of David, and the Son of God. As you prepare for Sunday, read through these lyrics and listen to the song here. Take time to give thanks to God for the promises given to Jesus’ ancestors and their providence of God that brought about their fulfillment in the person of Jesus Christ.

A Stable Turned a Temple

Oh glorious song, from the host of heaven calling
Proclaiming peace, goodwill towards men
For the brightest Star of Abraham
Descends to bless all the sons of men

Oh glorious song, from the host of Heaven calling
Proclaiming peace, goodwill towards men
For the brightest star of Abraham
Descends to bless all the sons of men

Son of Abraham, bring your blessing
To all the nations of the earth
Oh God who transforms this stable to a temple
Come, free us from the curse

Oh glorious light, dispelling the darkness
The Word of God in human form
Heir to David's throne eternal
The King of kings to us is born

Son of David, bring Your kingdom
Here on earth as is above
Oh Prince of Peace in this stable turned a temple
Come change us with your love

Oh glorious Son, begotten of the Father
Hallelujahs fill the vaulted skies
Oh praise, praise the name of the God who saves
Our King, our God, our Sacrifice

Oh Jesus, Son of God now Son of man
Love that descends to a stable turned a temple
Sleep in the straw of Bethlehem
