MERRY CHRISTMAS!

 

AMEN

Amen, amen, amen, amen, amen
Sing it over
Amen, amen, amen, amen, amen

See the little baby, (Amen)
Lyin’ in a manger, (Amen)
On Christmas morning,
Amen, amen, amen

See him in the temple, (Amen)
Talking with the elders, (Amen)
Who marveled at his wisdom
Amen, amen, amen

See him by the seaside, (Amen)
Talking with the fishermen, (Amen)
Makin’ ’em disciples
Amen, amen, amen

Marchin’ to Jerusalem, (Amen)
Wavin’ palm branches, (Amen)
In pomp and splendor
Amen, amen, amen

See him in the garden, (Amen)
Talkin’ with the Father, (Amen)
In deepest sorrow
Amen, amen, amen

Led before Pilate, (Amen)
Then they crucified him, (Amen)
But he rose on Easter
Amen, amen, amen

Hallelujah!, (Amen)
He died to save us, (Amen)
But he lives forever!
Amen, amen, amen

Amen, amen, amen, amen, amen
Sing it over
Amen, amen, amen, amen, amen
