I Discovered a New Christmas Song this year!

 

Manger

We all know Jesus was sent to earth to be our Savior.  He came to be the sacrifice for our sins, if we only believe.  John the Baptist was the first to call Jesus “The Lamb of God.”  John 1: 29 records John the Baptist “saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!”  John 1:35-37 declares,”The next day again John was standing with two of his disciples, 36 and he looked at Jesus as he walked by and said, ‘Behold, the Lamb of God!'” 

So, since man has known for eons that Jesus came as “The Lamb of God,” it is confounding that no one was astute/creative enough to write a Christmas song about Jesus being born in a stable, because lambs ARE born in a stable!  As the Lamb of God, God’s metaphoric and symbolic plan was for Jesus to be born in a stable!  The place where lambs are born!

Lamb

This wonderful carol, “Where Else Would a Lamb Be Born?” was written by Steve Amerson and Lowell Alexander, copyright 2009 by Amerson Music.

Verse One
No proper place
No regal palace
To receive a royal birth
God’s gift of love
Wrapped in an blanket (Infant)
Would be His way to reach the earth

Chorus
A bed of straw became a cradle
Embracing God in human form
One would expect more than a stable
But where else would a Lamb be born
But where else would a Lamb be born

Verse Two
No stately house
No noble mansion
Where He would reign in majesty
The path He chose
Led to an alter
Where He would give His life for me

Chorus
A bed of straw became a cradle
Embracing God in human form
One would expect more than a stable
But where else would a Lamb be born
But where else would a Lamb be born

Bridge
He is the great I AM

Wooden cross (3

The sacrificial lamb
Who takes away the sins of the world

Chorus
A bed of straw became His cradle
Embracing God in human form
One would expect more than a stable
But where else would a Lamb be born
But where else would a Lamb be born

Where Else Would a Lamb Be Born?
