New Christmas Song — Child of God

Our church put out a Christmas EP earlier this month called Emmanuel (Love Has Won). The title track was written by a great dude, B.J. Bryant. Check it out here.

I had the privilege of writing one of the other original songs on the EP. And had the greater privilege of hearing my wife sing it. You can have this privilege as well.

Merry Christmas!

Lyrics

Verse 1

The most beautiful night, this world will ever see
When you stepped off your throne, into flesh so weak
Into earth so dark, into skin so small
A precious baby boy, the Lord over all
Wrapped up in rags, a king of endless worth
Son of God and man, You are heaven and earth
Your hands will heal our sick, Your hands will bring us life
You will pull us from, the darkest of night

Sweet, Sweet, Child of God
Sweet, Sweet, Child of God
Oh, Sweet, Sweet, Child of God


Verse 2

Because of Your mercy, Because of Your love
The price you will pay, is more than enough
Your body will be pierced, and You will be disgraced
But with Your last breath, our sin will be erased

Brave, Brave, Child of God
Brave, Brave, Child of God
Oh, Brave, Brave, Child of God


Verse 3

You mend the broken, You break every chain
And cover us with grace, till nothing else remains
Forever we will live, forever we will sing
That You are the greatest, King of every King

Great, Great, Child of God
Oh, Great, Great, Child of God
Oh, Great, Great, Child of God


Bridge

Son of God
You are Jesus, Jesus

      Unfortunately we don’t have a backing track for it. But I can get you a chord chart if you’d like.
