11:41 And all God's fullness dwelleth in Him!
11:50 Down from His glory, ever living story,
11:59 My God and Savior came, and Jesus was His name;
12:08 Born in a manger to His own a stranger,
12:18 A man of sorrows, tears and agony!
12:29 Oh how I love Him! How I adore Him!
12:40 My breath, my sunshine, my all in all!
12:49 The great Creator became my Savior,
12:58 And all God's fullness dwelleth in Him!
13:07 What condescension, bringing us redemption,
13:17 That in the dead of night,
13:21 not one faint hope in sight,
13:26 God gracious, tender laid aside His splendor,
13:35 Stooping to woo, to win, to save my soul!
13:45 Without reluctance, flesh and blood His substance,

15:56 Truly I'd love Thee, truly I'd serve Thee,
16:07 Light of my soul, my joy, my crown.
16:17 Fair is the sunshine, Fairer still the moonlight,
16:27 And all the twinkling starry host;
16:37 Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines purer
16:46 Than all the angels heaven can boast.
17:06 Fair are the meadows, Fair are the woodlands,
17:17 Robed in the flowers of blooming spring;
17:27 Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer,
17:37 He makes our sorrowing spirit sing.

18:00 Son of God and Son of Man!
18:10 Glory and honor, Praise, adoration
18:20 Now and forevermore be Thine!
18:31 Now and forevermore be Thine!
19:24 Messiah would come The earth would rejoice
19:30 The people start to sing For they would behold
19:38 As Scripture foretold A mighty King of Kings
19:46 But He came as a child
19:49 Not like they had planned Not like they had planned
19:58 Lion of Judah Lamb of God
20:09 Glorious Conqueror Suffering Son
20:19 Lion of Judah With nails in His hands
20:30 The Mighty Redeemer Was meek as a lamb
20:48 No elegant robes No glorious throne
20:53 No armies at His side Could this be the One?
21:01 A carpenter's son? A man condemned to die? But
21:09 a lion roared Deep inside this Lamb Inside this Man.
21:21 Lion of Judah Lamb of God
21:33 Glorious Conqueror Suffering Son
21:43 Lion of Judah With nails in His hands
21:53 The Mighty Redeemer Was meek as a lamb
22:04 Lion of Judah Son of God
22:15 Lord come and take the Son Bearing my name
22:25 Lion of Judah You gave your own life
22:35 Then what I can give for you
22:41 I give you my heart.
22:52 I give you my heart.
23:09 Have you ever wondered why Jesus came
23:11 to this earth? I mean, He was the king of glory,
23:14 why did he come to live like one of us in this
23:17 sin sick world. You know, it is because
23:21 he loved us and he knew that he was the only
23:24 one that could ever save us from our sins.
23:28 Well soon after Jesus was born
23:29 He was brought to the temple to be dedicated
23:31 just like any Jewish baby, and there was a man
23:34 at the temple by the name of Simeon and
23:36 he was very old, and he had been praying
23:38 all his life that he might see the Messiah before
23:41 he died, and it had been revealed to him by
23:45 the Holy Spirit that he will see the Messiah.
23:48 Well one day he was walking through the temple,
23:50 and he saw a baby boy, and he knew that
23:53 this wasn't just any baby boy; he knew that this
23:56 was the Messiah. You see, Simeon knew the reason
24:01 why Jesus had come to earth,
24:03 he had come to save sinners like himself,
24:05 and we just like Simeon are in need of a savior,
24:10 but there's a problem. We have been disconnected
24:13 from God and the only way we can be reconnected
24:16 is by accepting Christ as our personal savior,
24:20 and by accepting that sacrifice that he made
24:23 on the cross. It is our prayer that through
24:27 this music, we and you together might see Jesus
24:31 in the clear light, but not just to see Jesus
24:34 in clear light, but to accept Him as our personal
24:37 savior, may our prayer be, oh come
24:40 let us adore him, Christ the Lord.
25:49 When blossoms flower e'er 'mid the snow,
25:53 Upon a winter night, Was born the Child,
25:58 the Christmas Rose, The King of Love and Light.
26:04 The angels sang, the shepherds sang,
26:08 The grateful earth rejoiced;
26:14 And at His blessed birth the stars
26:17 Their exultation voiced.
26:24 O come let us adore Him O come let us adore Him
26:39 O come let us adore Him Christ the Lord.
26:58 Again the heart with rapture glows
27:01 To greet the holy night,
27:06 That gave the world its Christmas Rose,
27:09 Its King of Love and Light
27:13 Let every voice acclaim His name,
27:17 The grateful chorus swell
27:22 From paradise to earth He came
27:26 That we with Him might dwell.
27:33 O come let us adore Him O come let us adore Him
27:48 O come let us adore Him Christ the Lord.
28:01 O come let us adore Him O come let us adore Him
28:15 O come let us adore Him Christ the Lord.
28:38 News! News! Jesus Christ is born today!
28:45 Ox and ass before Him bow And He is in the manger now
28:51 Christ is born today! Christ is born today!
28:57 Good Christian men, rejoice
29:01 With heart and soul and voice
29:04 Now ye hear of endless bliss Joy! Joy!
29:10 Jesus Christ was born for this
29:13 He hath ope'd the heav'nly door
29:16 And man is blessed evermore
29:20 Christ was born for this Christ was born for this.
29:29 O come let us adore Him O come let us adore Him
29:41 O come let us adore Him Christ the Lord.
30:23 In the little village of Bethlehem,
30:28 There lay a Child one day;
30:35 And the sky was bright with a holy light
30:40 O'er the place where Jesus lay.
30:45 Alleluia! O how the angels sang.
30:51 Alleluia! How it rang!
30:57 And the sky was bright with a holy light
31:04 'Twas the birthday of a King.
31:22 'Twas a humble birthplace, but O how much
31:27 God gave to us that day,
31:33 From the manger bed what a path has led,
31:38 What a perfect, holy way.
31:44 Alleluia! O how the angels sang.
31:49 Alleluia! How it rang!
31:55 And the sky was bright with a holy light
32:02 'Twas the birthday of a King.
32:08 Alleluia! O how the angels sang.
32:14 Alleluia! How it rang!
32:21 And the sky was bright with a holy light
32:26 'Twas the birthday of a savior Alleluia!
32:32 How it rang! 'Twas the birthday of a King!
33:01 Infinite Lord, my Infant King,
33:12 Throned in humility;
33:20 YOUR ONLY ROBES YOUR SWADDLING CLOTHES;
33:28 Crying a fulfilled decree;
33:36 YOUR GRAND DOMAIN, YOUR CROWN AND TRAIN-
33:47 DARKNESS AND DUST AND SHEEP.
33:55 Jesus, now I kneel and pray,
34:04 STABLED IN DEEPEST NEED;
34:12 My only robe is your righteousness;
34:20 Mercy is my only plea; My light Your Word;
34:31 My song is of thank. My hope and prayer is to have no grief.
34:47 Infinite Lord, You are my King. I give my heart to You.
35:19 And they were shepherds living out in the
35:21 fields nearby, keeping watch over their
35:24 flocks by night. And the angel of the Lord
35:27 appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord
35:29 shone around them, and they were terrified,
35:32 and the angel said unto them,
35:35 "Do not be afraid for I bring you good news
35:37 of great joy that is for all the people,
35:41 for Today in the town of David a Savior
35:45 has been born unto you; he is Christ the Lord.
35:54 I saw today, there was an angel about to go up
36:00 the happy house, praising God and saying.
36:08 Glory to God, glory to God in the highest
36:18 there peace on His Earth Goodwill towards men
36:30 Goodwill towards men, towards men Goodwill,
36:34 Goodwill, Goodwill Goodwill, Goodwill,
36:41 Goodwill, towards men the men.
37:01 There's a star in the East on Christmas morn,
37:07 Rise up, shepherd, and follow.
37:10 It will lead to the place where the savior's born,
37:15 Rise up, shepherd, and follow.
37:20 Follow, follow, rise up, shepherd, and follow.
37:30 Follow the Star of Bethlehem,
37:34 Rise up, shepherd, and follow.
37:42 If you take good heed to the angel's words,
37:47 Rise up, shepherd, and follow.
37:52 You'll forget your flocks, you'll forget your herds,
37:58 Rise up, shepherd, and follow.
38:03 Follow, follow, rise up, shepherd, and follow.
38:13 Follow the Star of Bethlehem,
38:18 Rise up, shepherd, and follow.
38:24 Follow, follow, rise up, shepherd, and follow.
38:34 Follow the Star of Bethlehem,
38:39 Rise up, shepherd, and follow
38:45 rise up shepherd and follow.
39:23 Come to Bethlehem and see
39:26 Christ Whose birth the angels sing;
39:30 Come, adore on bended knee,
39:34 Christ the Lord, the newborn King.
39:38 Gloria in Excelsis Deo! Gloria in Excelsis Deo!
40:05 Hail the heav'n-born Prince of Peace!
40:08 Hail the Son of Righteousness!
40:13 Light and life to all He brings
40:16 Ris'n with healing in His wings.
40:21 Line of assembly of angels sing
40:25 "Glory to the newborn King! Peace on earth
40:31 and mercy mild God and sinners reconciled"
40:37 Hark! The herald angels sing
40:42 "Glory to the newborn King!"
40:48 Gloria in Excelsis Deo!
41:03 "Glory to the newborn King!"
41:32 Heaven's arches rang When the angels sang
41:41 Proclaiming Thy royal degree; But of lowly birth
41:51 Cam'st Thou, Lord, on earth, And in great humility;
42:03 O come to my heart Lord Jesus;
42:11 There is room in my heart for thee!
42:18 There is room in my heart for thee!
42:45 Christ came from His glory in heaven.
42:49 He came for be the king of the Universe,
42:50 to being born in manger. He came from His Throne
42:55 in heaven to putting on the humble garb
42:57 of humanity, but why? I'll tell you why,
43:04 is because He loves you, Christ loves you
43:07 so much that He came from His glory in heaven
43:12 and He was born in that manger,
43:14 and He lived a perfect life and died an
43:18 innocent death, because He loves you.
43:22 In Luke chapter 2 and verse 7 it reads,
43:25 as she brought forth her firstborn son,
43:29 and wrapped Him in swaddling clothes,
43:31 and laid Him in a manger; because there was
43:33 no room for them in the Inn.
43:37 There was not only no room for Christ in the Inn,
43:43 there was not only no vacancy,
43:46 but it's because they did not make room
43:48 for their King, they did not make room for Jesus
43:51 in their hearts. Turning around in verse 8,
43:57 now there were in the same country Shepherds,
44:00 living out in the fields, keeping watch over their
44:03 flocks by night. It was these shepherds,
44:07 these were the people that were ready.
44:09 The ones that were waiting and wanting this
44:12 savior to come. They were the ones that
44:15 were ready because they had made room
44:19 for Christ in their heart, they were ready,
44:23 but when you think about the priests,
44:25 the Scribes and the Pharisees,
44:27 all these Godly figures of the nation,
44:31 why were they not there at Bethlehem,
44:34 worshiping and welcoming this Savior,
44:37 why were they not there? Well, it's because
44:43 they did not make room for Him in their hearts,
44:47 yes they were serving God in the Temple,
44:50 but they were not serving God from the heart,
44:54 they were serving in a way of show,
44:57 and self glorification, they weren't serving God
45:00 from the heart. I have a question for you,
45:06 if Christ were to come again today as a baby
45:11 where would you be? Would you be like the
45:14 priests or the scribes and Pharisees just focusing
45:18 on what they're doing, making sure they
45:20 look alright, not really serving God from the heart.
45:25 Or would you be like the Shepherds,
45:28 awaiting the coming of the Savior,
45:30 wanting and longing Him to come and save them
45:33 from their sin. Where would you be,
45:38 if Christ were to come again?
45:40 Well Christ is coming very, very soon,
45:44 not as a baby, but as the Lord and King
45:48 of the Universe again and He's coming
45:50 to take us home. Where are you gonna be
45:53 on that day? Are you gonna be in that choir
45:57 standing there singing halleluiah,
46:01 the King of Kings and Lord of Lords reigns in my heart,
46:07 because I made room for him,
46:09 where will you be on that day.
46:20 Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah
46:25 Hallelujah, Hallelujah Hallelujah Hallelujah
46:32 Hallelujah Hallelujah,
46:35 For the Lord God omnipotent reigneth.

47:18 The kingdom of this world
47:25 Is become the kingdom of our Lord,
47:31 And of His Christ, and of His Christ;
47:36 And He shall reign for ever and ever,
47:41 For ever and ever, forever and ever.
47:45 And He shall reign for ever and ever;
47:55 King of Kings, Forever and ever,
47:59 Hallelujah Hallelujah, And Lord of Lords,

48:36 And He shall reign. And He shall reign
48:39 forever and ever. King of Kings

48:47 Hallelujah Hallelujah And He shall reign
48:51 forever and ever. King of Kings,
48:57 and Lord of Lords. King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.
49:04 And He shall reign forever and ever.
49:07 Forever and ever, Hallelujah Hallelujah,
49:13 Hallelujah Hallelujah, Hallelujah.
49:51 In the first light of a new day
49:56 No one knew He had arrived
50:00 Things continued as they had been
50:04 While a new born softly cried.
50:08 But the heavens wrapped in wonder
50:12 Knew the meaning of His birth
50:17 In the weakness of a baby
50:21 They knew God had come to earth.
50:36 As His mother held him closely,
50:41 It was hard to understand
50:46 That her baby not yet speaking
50:51 Was the Word of God to man.
50:57 He would tell them of His kingdom,
51:02 But their hearts would not believe
51:07 They would hate Him and in anger
51:12 They would nail Him to a tree.
51:22 But the sadness would be broken
51:27 As the song of life arose
51:31 And the First born of creation
51:36 Would ascend and take his throne.
51:40 He has left it to redeem us,
51:45 But before His life began
51:49 He knew He'd come back not as a baby
51:54 But as The Lord of ev'ry man.
51:59 Hear the angels as they're singing
52:03 On the morning of His birth
52:07 But how much greater will our song be
52:12 When He comes again to Earth
52:17 Hear the angels as they're singing
52:21 On the morning of His birth
52:25 But how much greater will our song be
52:30 When He comes again to Earth
52:37 When He comes to rule the Earth!
52:41 Hallelujah, hallelujah, amen.
53:03 In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
53:17 Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
53:30 Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
53:43 In the bleak midwinter, long time ago.
53:57 Angels and archangels may have gathered there,
54:10 Cherubim and Seraphim thronged the air;
54:22 But His mother only, in her maiden bliss,
54:36 Worshiped the beloved with a kiss
54:52 What can I give Him, poor as I am?
55:06 If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
55:19 If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
55:33 Yet what I can I give Him: give him my heart.
55:47 Yet what I can I give Him: give him my heart.
56:14 Well isn't that beautiful music?
56:16 Do you know there's something special about
56:18 young man or men singing, they just sound beautiful
56:21 and what could be more beautiful this time
56:24 of year than the location and snow just add so much.
56:28 It really does, and that whole group, the strings,
56:33 the choir, the music that Craig Cleveland gets
56:39 out of that group is just astounding.
56:41 Well, I think you have dedicated kids and young
56:46 people, yeah, and also they enjoy what
56:49 they're doing, they're gifted, they're blessed
56:51 and it really shows. It really does.
56:53 Christian Education is where it is folks,
56:57 Fountainview Academy is a wonderful Christian
56:59 School in Canada, and they have really turned
57:03 out some fantastic graduates.
57:07 Camille and I believe in Christian Education,
57:09 yes we do, our children were all raised
57:12 in Christian School, right, we attended and
57:15 we're graduated from Christian School,

57:19 and we've got two, two grandchildren
57:21 now that are in Academy, yes and they're both,
57:25 they're loving it. One of them had a little
57:27 rough start but he's doing great,
57:29 yes he really, we really thank the faculty
57:31 for all they do amen, that's right.
