Carolyn Arends Album: Christmas: An Irrational Season Track: Now in Flesh Appearing
Now in Flesh Appearing Lyrics
It's December 24 Colder than the night before But it's sure hot down in the kitchen At the Union Gospel Mission Joshua's a volunteer He does this every single year Shares soup and conversation with some strangers And all his friends just can't believe How he spends his Christmas Eve He says it brings him closer to the manger
Well, this is Christmas A hand upon a shoulder Christmas A little peace on earth This is Christmas The sweet love of Jesus Now in flesh appearing, yeah
There's some static on the phone Half a world away from home Lisa's mom fights back the tears "It's Christmas Eve and you're not here" No one could believe her plan An orphanage in Kazakhstan But Lisa knew that's where she had to go And now she's hugging on those kids Teaching them what Christmas is And though her family misses her they know
That this is Christmas ...
We celebrate the Baby King And everything He came to bring Every time we give good will to men So on December 25 Or in the middle of July Any time we do what pleases Him ...
Then it's Christmas Merry Christmas This is Christmas Now in flesh appearing
