Finale - The Beginning

What an amazing conclusion to this album. 

It's powerful.

It's moving.

It gives me chills and makes me want to worship forever.

Because one of the great messages of Christmas that we tend to forget is that.... it's not over.

The story doesn't end with Jesus being born and a lot of people visiting him. It's only the beginning. The story doesn't even end when Christ died, rose, and ascended into heaven.


That's part of Christmas and Advent. It's us remembering that Christ came once and he's going to come back. Only when he comes again it's going to be in all of his marvelous glory - and he's going to take us home to be with him. It's not a scary frightening thing people try to make it out to be about the end times. It's going to be the most glorious and wonderful day of our lives. 

Because we'll finally get to go home.

Because the Christmas story never ends. Not really. We'll be able to go home with Jesus and live with him forever.

The end is only the beginning.

In the first light, of a new day, no one knew he had arrived
Things continued as they had been while a newborn softly cried
But the heavens, wrapped in wonder, knew the meaning of his birth,
In the weakness of a baby, they knew God had come to Earth

As this mother held him closely, it was hard to understand
That her baby not yet speaking, was the word of God to man,
He would tell them of his kingdom but their hearts would not believe
They would hate him and in anger, they would nail him to a tree

But the sadness would be be broken was the song of life arose
And the firstborn of creation would ascend and take his throne
He had left it to redeem us but before his life began
He knew he'd come back, not as a baby, but as the Lord of every man

Hear the angels as they're singing on the morning of his birth
But how much greater will our song be when he comes again, when he comes again
Hear the angels as they're singing on the morning of his birth
But how much greater will our song be when he comes again to Earth
When he comes to rule

Said the king to the people everywhere, "Listen to what I say,
Pray for peace people everywhere, and listen to what I say.

A child, a child, sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light
He will bring us goodness and light
