Sidewalk Prophets Because Its Christmas

The snow is falling again

It looks a wonderland

But I’m stuck in traffic behind all these red lights

So I call you up and sigh

Cause I forgot the pumpkin pie

You say “it’s all right;

we’ll still have a wonderful night

Just take your time and slow it down

And let your heart hear the joyful sounds”

[Chorus:]

Because it’s Christmas

Love is filling the air

Because it’s Christmas

The thrill of hope is everywhere

So let the music play

And let your worry melt away

Because it’s Christmas

Back home the fire’s bright

And the tree is full of lights

But the family’s coming and there’s so much work to be done

So you call me up and say

Could you hurry on your way

I say “hold on, tonight will be so much fun

Just take a breath, and say a prayer

And before you know it I’ll be there”

[Chorus]

And in this world so loud and busy

Sometimes we forget just why

We celebrate this time each year

But if you listen close the angels cry

The whole world sings the reason why

Because it’s Christmas

Our savior’s born tonight

Because it’s Christmas…

[Chorus]

Sidewalk Prophets What A Glorious Night

The shepherds came to

see the baby

Stood by his mother’s side

Here laid the Savior

inside a manger

Oh what a glorious night

Oh what a glorious night

I hear the angels singing halleluiah

Let the earth receive her king

I know that love has come

Singing it out

Jesus Christ is born

Jesus Christ is born

Yeah

The shepherds wondered

They couldn’t hide it

Told everyone in sight

All were amazed

When they heard how

God came down on the glorious night

God came down on this glorious night

I hear the angels singing halleluiah

Let the earth receive her king

I know that love has come

Singing it out

Jesus Christ is born

Jesus Christ is born

Yeah

Glorious

Glorious

What a Glorious night

Glorious

Glorious

What a Glorious night

I hear the angels singing halleluiah

Let the earth receive her king

I know that love has come

Singing it out

Jesus Christ is born

I hear the angels singing halleluiah

Let the earth receive her king

I know that love has come

Singing it out

Jesus Christ is born

I heard that Jesus Christ is born

Yeah Yeah Yeah

All is calm now

All is quiet

A Star shining in the sky

Below in Bethlehem

The king is sleeping

Oh What a Glorious Night

Oh What a Glorious Night

Sidewalk Prophets Give Me Christmas

Get out of bed

Outside the window there’s nothing but snow

Run down the stairs

The smile in my heart has spread down to my toes

Heaven knows

Ribbons of red

Presents as far as the eye can see

In this wonderland

The tree is a tower of gold and green

What a wonderful scene

All the lights and the toys

Bring us joy

In the end, it’s just not enough

Cause what we really need

And what Christmas really means is love

Give me Christmas, give me Christmas

The table is set

A house full of friends and family

The fire is warm

We’ll be singing those songs and laughing all night long

Cause there’s one thing we all can agree

All the lights and the toys

Bring us joy

In the end, it’s just not enough

Cause what we really need

And what Christmas really means is love

Give me Christmas, give me Christmas

Gather round the tree

And remember what Christmas really means

All the cookies and candy

The carols and candles

The stockings and the snow

All the tinsel and trimmings

And the lights are all twinkling

The world is all aglow

All of these things are so wonderful beautiful

But what we really need is love

Give me Christmas

Give me Christmas

Sidewalk Prophets Come To The Table

We all start on the outside

The outside looking in

This is where grace begins

We were hungry, we were thirsty

With nothing left to give

Oh the shape that we were in

Just when all hope seemed lost

Love opened the door for us

He said come to the table

Come join the sinners who have been redeemed

Take your place beside the Savior

Sit down and be set free

Come to the table

Come meet this motley crew of misfits

These liars and these thiefs

There’s no one unwelcome here

So that sin and shame that you brought with you

You can leave it at the door

Let mercy draw you near

Come to the table

Come join the sinners who have been redeemed

Take your place beside the Savior

Sit down and be set free

Come to the table

Come to the table

To the thief and to the doubter

To the hero and the coward

To the prisoner and the soldier

To the young and to the older

All who hunger, all who thirst

All the last and all the first

All the paupers and the princes

All who fail you’ve been forgiven

All who dream and all who suffer

All who loved and lost another

All the chained and all the free

All who follow, all who lead

Anyone who’s been let down

All the lost you have been found

All who have been labeled right or wrong

To everyone who hears this song

Ooh

Come to the table

Come join the sinners you have been redeemed

Take your place beside the Savior

Sit down and be set free

Oooh

Sit down and be set free

Come to the table

Come to the table

Just sit down and rest a while

Just sit down and rest a while

Come to the table

Sidewalk Prophets To Live Is Christ

If I rise, let me rise on you

Not on all of my successes, my esteem or my pursuits

If I lose, let me lose my life

Cause if I belong to Jesus, the flesh is crucified

For me to live is Christ

For me to live is Christ

For me to live is Christ, to die is gain

If I grow, let me grow in You

Wilt the seeds of wanting more

Rippin’ pride out by the roots

And if I’m still, let me hear You speak

Not the tone of my transgressions,

But the song of the Redeemed

For me to live is Christ

For me to live is Christ

For me to live is Christ, to die is gain

For me to live is Christ

For me to live is Christ

For me to live is Christ, to die is gain

My great desire is to be with You

But this is the place you chose for me

This is the place you chose for me

To lift my cross and give everything

This is the time you gave to me

This is the time you gave to me

For me to live is Christ, For me to live is Christ

For me to live is Christ, to die is gain

I’ll never be the same, I’ll never be the same

For me to live is Christ, to die is gain

Sidewalk Prophets Just Might Change Your Life

You’ve got your reasons

Reasons just to walk away

No one would blame you if you didn’t want to face the pain

You find yourself

Up against the wall

You’re scared to push cause it might fall

And it…

Just might change your life

You’re on the edge now take one step

And you just might find you’ll fly

You never know what will happen next

Don’t be afraid to let go this time

It just might change your life

You keep on reaching

Reaching for a hand to hold

You’re scared you’ll wake up on the edge of the unknown

You find your heart in fragile place

Afraid to move cause it might break

And it…

Just might change your life

You’re on the edge now take one step

And you just might find you’ll fly

You never know what will happen next

Don’t be afraid to let go this time

It just might change your life

Don’t be afraid to let go

Just let go, just let go, just let go, just let go!

And it…

Just might change your life

You’re on the edge now take one step

And you just might find you’ll fly

You never know what will happen next

And it just might change your life

You’re on the edge now take one step

And you just might find you’ll fly

You never know what will happen next

Don’t be afraid to let go this time

Don’t be afraid to let go this time

It just might change your life

Sidewalk Prophets Prodigal

It’s been a long time since you felt peace

In the valley you made where you’re not meant to be

Where the shame throws shadows on you

But don’t you forget

That you’re headed to more

But you’ve settled for less

Don’t buy the lie “it’s as good as it gets”

The same feet that left you lost and alone

Are the very same feet that can bring you back home

Wherever you are, whatever you did

It’s a page in your book, but it isn’t the end

Your Father will meet you with arms open wide

This is where your heart belongs

Come running like a prodigal

There will be nights, when you hear whispers

Of the life you once knew, don’t let it linger

Cause there’s a grace that falls upon you

Don’t you forget

In the places you’re weak

He is very strong

Don’t ever believe “you don’t deserve love”

The same God that protects you when you’re lost and alone

Is the very same God that is calling you home

Wherever you are, whatever you did

It’s a page in your book, but it isn’t the end

Your Father will meet you with arms open wide

This is where your heart belongs

Come running like a prodigal

Oh…

Let your life be made new

Oh…

As you come into view

Your Father’s not waiting, no he’s running too

He’s running straight to you

Wherever you are, whatever you did

It’s a page in your book, but it isn’t the end

Your Father will meet you with arms open wide

This is where your heart belongs

Come running like a prodigal [repeat]

Sidewalk Prophets Help Me Find It

I don’t know where to go from here

It all used to seem so clear

I’m finding I can’t do this on my own

I don’t know where to go from here

As long as I know that You are near

I’m done fighting

I’m finally letting go

I will trust in You

You’ve never failed before

I will trust in You

[Chorus:]

If there’s a road I should walk

Help me find it

If I need to be still

Give me peace for the moment

Whatever Your will

Whatever Your will

Can you help me find it

Can you help me find it

I’m giving You fear and You give faith

I giving you doubt

You give me grace

For every step I’ve never been alone

Even when it hurts, You’ll have Your way

Even in the valley I will say

With every breath

You’ve never let me go

I will wait for You

You’ve never failed before

I will wait for You

[Chorus]

I lift my empty hands (come fill me up again)

Have Your way my King (I give my all to You)

I lift my eyes again (Was blind but now I see)

‘Cause You are all I need

[Chorus]

Sidewalk Prophets You Love Me Anyway

The question was raised

As my conscience fell

A silly, little lie

It didn’t mean much

But it lingers still

In the corners of my mind

Still you call me to walk

On the edge of this world

To spread my dreams and fly

But the future’s so far

My heart is so frail

I think I’d rather stay inside

[Chorus:]

But You love me anyway

It’s like nothing in life that I’ve ever known

Yes, You love me anyway

Oh, Lord, how You love me

How You love me

It took more than my strength

To simply be still

To seek but never find

All the reasons we change

The reasons I doubt

And why do loved ones have to die?

[Chorus:]

But You love me anyway

It’s like nothing in life that I’ve ever known

Yes, You love me anyway

Oh, Lord, how You love me

[Bridge:]

I am a thorn in Your crown

But You love me anyway

I am the sweat from Your brow

But You love me anyway

I am the nail in Your wrist

But You love me anyway

I am Judas’ kiss

But You love me anyway

See now, I am the man who yelled out from the crowd

For Your blood to be spilled on this earth shaking ground

Yes then I turned away with the smile on my face

With this sin in my heart tried to bury Your grace

And then alone in the night I still called out for You

So ashamed of my life, my life, my life

[Chorus:]

But You love me anyway

Oh, God, how you love me

Yes, You love me anyway

It’s like nothing in life that I’ve ever known

Yes, You love me anyway

Oh, Lord, how You love me

Yes, You love me,

Yes, You love me

Yes, You love me,

Yes, You love me

How You love me

How You love me

How You love me
