Service Music for Advent/Christmas 2008

Offering for Advent (tune= Away in a Manger):
O Christmas is coming, the season is here.
Of folks buying presents for friends far and near.
To you God incarnate our gifts now we bring.
We lay them before you while praises we sing.

Offering for Christmas (tune= Away in a Manger):
O Christmas has come now the baby is here.
He lies in the manger the Saviour most dear.
To you child of Mary our gifts now we bring.
We lay them before you while praises we sing.

Closing for Advent:(tune=Good King Wenceslas)
Have no fear be full of hope, the Christ-child is coming.
Hope he brings to all our hearts, praises we are humming.
As we prepare for the birth, let our hearts learn to trust.
We will never have to fear, God is walking with us.

Closing for Christmas:(tune=God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen) (first written 2007)
God bless you all as you go out
To share the Christmas joy
To tell of peace and love and hope
Born with a baby boy
And may we pass God’s love along
As if in God’s employ
O Christmas has come to us again, come again
O Christmas has come to us again
