My New Favorite Christmas Song

James at Beneath the Cross posted this Christmas song on his blog, and it has been in my head ever since! (if you want to learn from one wise dude, go check out his site)
I had heard it before, but had not focused on all the words.  I love the very last 3 lines, but my favorite line is “…you were born so I might live”  The true meaning of Christmas in one line.  Love it.

And with this Christmas wish is missed
The point I could convey

If only I could find the words to say to let You know how
much You’ve touched my life
Because here is where You’re finding me, in the exact same
place as New Year’s eve
And from a lack of my persistency
We’re less than half as close as I want to be
And the first time
That You opened Your eyes did You realize that You would be my Savior
And the first breath that left Your lips
Did You know that it would change this world forever

And so this Christmas I’ll compare the things I felt in prior years

To what this midnight made so clear
That You have come to meet me here
To look back and think that
This baby would one day save me
In the hope that what You did
That you were born so I might live
To look back and think that
This baby would one day save me
And I, I celebrate the day
That You were born to die
So I could one day pray for You to save my life
