"Now We Remember"

Merry Christmas to loved ones, far and near
Whether a great or a terrible year,
Lovely reasons exist to celebrate:
The One for Whom all the world did wait
Indeed, the whole of creation groaned
For the One who could rightly for sin atone.

Our good and glorious God above
Sent Jesus to offer the world His love
After birth, life, and death, He rose to the sky.
Gave the gift of the Spirit to guide us by.

Now we remember, rejoicing, elated
Each year His birth will be celebrated!
Whether a great or a terrible year,
It's a Merry Christmas: Emmanuel is here!
