Advent – The Final Day

??

The wait is almost over! Today is the final day of Advent. Tomorrow is the day that we celebrate the birth of our Savior. Last Sunday, our worship team performed a new song that I absolutely love. It?s from the North Point Christmas CD (you can find the CD here). The song was Everything Changed by Eddie Kirkland. I?ve been thinking a lot about the lyrics and thought it would be a fitting way to end this Advent series.

??

??

On a night like this on a broken road

??

she is far from sleep, she is far from home

??

for a baby?s cries tear the still of night

??

She wonders why

??

The future was bright and clear; she planned for a wedding day

??

her daddy would hold back tears giving her hand away

??

now all her hopes and fears in a cradle lay

??

for a baby came and everything changed

??

On a night like this many years ago

??

as she held him close, she had come to know

??

that a mother?s heart could not let him go

??

and she knows why

??

??

The future was bright and clear with hope and a promise made

??

the Light of the world was near, choirs of angels sang

??

heaven?s exalted king in a manger lay

??

cause a baby came and everything changed

??

When our dreams grow dim and our hearts grow cold

??

he is never far from our broken soul

??

Gloria! our God is with us!

??

Gloria! He has come to save!

??

Mercy and love now for every generation

??

for the Savior came and everything changed

??

??The Savior came and everything changed! I hope you?ll make plans to join us for one of our Christmas Eve Services. We have services at 4pm and 11pm. The 4pm service is a Family Service and childcare will be available for Infants – preschool age children. The 11pm service is a Candlelight Service.
Grace,
