When I Think Upon Christmas

Words and Music by Aodhan King, Renee Sieff, & Ben Tan

VERSE 1
When I think upon Christmas
Words can’t express
How our Father in heaven
Has sent us His best
To be born in a manger
The king in the hay
And creation will worship His Name

CHORUS
For the joy of the world
He was born
Bringing peace to us all
Through the gift of the Son
Now the darkest of ages are done
For the Saviour of heaven has come

VERSE 2
When I think upon Jesus
The King of all days
I can’t help but respond
With an offering of praise
Like the wise men and shepherds
I’ll follow Your light
Like the angels I’ll lift Your Name high

CHORUS 2
For the joy of the world
You were born
Bringing peace to us all
For the gift of Your love
Now the darkest of ages are done
For the Saviour of heaven has come

VERSE 3
Now I look back in reverence
To that holy night
For the God of the heavens
Had us on His mind
Let us sing of His glory
Rejoice in His Name
Oh Emmanuel with us always
And forever His kingdom will reign
