That First Christmas Day

Lyrics by Lane Johnson

That first Christmas morning beneath a new star
Mary sat pondering deep in her heart,
Pondering who was asleep in her arms:
The King, the Son of God.

How could she ever have known on that day
This little baby asleep on the hay
One day would take all our sins away
And change our hearts, change our ways?

God so loved the world,
That he gave his only begotten son
His loving grace was bestowed 
On that first Christmas day long ago.

Born in a manger so humble and small
He would ascend to the greatest call. 
Born to this world to redeem from the fall
To brighten the world, lighten us all.


How can you measure the depth of this gift?
How can you fathom its worth?
Let us remember his life here on earth,
Let us pause to glory his birth!

Let us sing praises to worship this babe
Treasure the gift of that Christmas day
And stand all amazed at the price he paid
To change our hearts, change our ways.


God so loved the world
On that first Christmas day long ago.
