Skies laden with stars so bright
See rooftops adorned with colored lights,
Carols chase the still winds,
And the bells are sounding
But behind this frosted window
It still is Christmas Eve.
Beneath the tree, presents galore,
Some to be opened at Christmas dawn
See the households rejoice and feast,
The world awaits the Saviour’s birth
A time to reflect, spread love and joy
It still is the eve before Christmas Day.
People crowd the streets and they cheer,
All come together, far and near.
Give heartily, sing merrily,
Love wholly, eat fully
The King is born in some hours
But for now it is still Christmas Eve.
Anticipation has chased the hours away
And the little ones croon in beds as they lay
The King of kings, He lies swathed in a manger
Meek and humble is our born Saviour.
Christmas is here with her precious gift.
Night is nigh,
I must say a prayer
I look up to the Most High,
He never fails to deliver.
In good times and bad times,
I will trust and obey
You have shown to mankind,
To salvation, you are the only way!
I will boast of you to the crowds,
They will hear of you Lord.
Even those with hearts so proud,
Eventually your glory they will accord
The people must know,
Of this Awesome God
Each day, new mercies bestowed,
Oh His name, I will forever uphold.
Night is nigh,
I must say a prayer.
Your ways I admire,
And I wish to bask in Thy favour.
A heart is calling,
Pleading a new start
The journey ever delightful
To welcome a lost one, now found
Praise at my feet,
I am welcomed volitionally
My Father and I ever so proud
That the Kingdom thrives
Hear the angels cheer so loud
Time is passing
The soul is lacking
Each day growing weary
And see how I have been shut out
Sorrow begrips me, my tears are endless
The slate full once more
My stay cut short, I’m let go
The journey dejects me
Lost is the same soul, savoring in sin,
My Father and I, see us weep
Time has elapsed,
The soul is calling again
And I go running without restrain
To wipe that slate clean
Undeterred by the recurrent sinner
