Tune-y Tuesday (the night before Christmas)

Another Tuesday, another song!

This one is performed by Brandon Heath. As I've mentioned on twitter and probably here on the blog, my sister had a baby recently. It's almost a guarantee that if I'm holding her, I'm probably praying over her little life. And having my mind blow over the fact that Jesus humbled Himself to be her size.

The chorus in this song is just so incredible. 

Jesus coming to earth put everything in motion (though it had been in motion already forever) for Him to save us.



Empty manger, perfect stranger, about to be born.
Into darkness, sadness, desperate madness, creation so torn.
 

We were so lost on earth, no peace, no worth.
no way to escape.
 

In fear, no faith, no hope, no grace ,and no light
but that was the night before Christmas.
 

Warm hay, cold sweat, a mother, not yet.
Praying godspeed the dawn.
 

She looks to her man, holding her hand. They wonder how long.
And the shepherds, wise men come to find them, and bow to a king.
One star above shining on love, so bright it lit up the night before Christmas.


And the world didnt know mercy was meek and so mild.
And the world didnt know that truth was as pure as a child.
The night before Christmas.
The night before Christmas.
 

And the world didnt know redemption was sweet and so strong.
And the world didnt know salvation was writing a song.
The night before christmas.
The night before christmas.
The night before christmas.
 

Empty manger, perfect stranger, about to be born.
