Colin Buchanan, James Pierpont

Verse 1
The world belongs to God

He spoke and there it was
Though it was very good
It all went bad because
The man that God had made
And the woman there with him
Turned their back on God to get
A deadly taste of sin (But)

Jesus is the way
Jesus is the saviour
You can come to him today, hey!
Jesus saves, Jesus saves
People from their sin
You will find forgiveness
When you put your trust in him

Verse 2
Well if you look around

You’ll see how sin has spread
Turning light to dark
And living things to dead
But God still rules the world
He always had a plan
To send his Son to save us
In the likeness of a man

Jesus saves, Jesus saves

Jesus is the way
Jesus is the saviour
You can come to him today, hey!

People from their sin
You will find forgiveness
When you put your trust in him

Well if you come to God

(You still have time you know)
He’ll wash your sinful heart
And make it white as snow
Come taste eternal life
And death will have no sting
All who trust in Jesus are
The children of the king

Chorus
Jesus saves, Jesus saves

Jesus is the way
Jesus is the saviour
You can come to him today, hey!
Jesus saves, Jesus saves
People from their sin
You will find forgiveness
When you put your trust in him

4. O Holy Night

Adolphe Charles Adam, Placide Cappeau, and John S. Dwight

Verse 1
O holy night

The stars are brightly shining
It is the night
Of the dear saviour’s birth
Long lay the world
In sin and error pining
Till he appeared
And the soul felt its worth
A thrill of hope
The weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks
A new and glorious morn
Fall on your knees
Oh, hear the angel voices
O night divine
O night when Christ was born
O night
O holy night, O night divine

Verse 2
Led by the light

Of faith serenely beaming
With glowing hearts
By his cradle we stand
So led by light
Of a star sweetly gleaming
Here came the wise men
From Orient land
The king of kings
Lay thus in lowly manger
In all our trials
Born to be our friend
He knows our need
To our weakness is no stranger
Behold your king
Before him lowly bend
Behold your king
Before him lowly bend

Verse 3
Truly he taught us

To love one another
His law is love
And his gospel is peace
Chains shall he break
For the slave is our brother
And in his name
All oppression shall cease
Sweet hymns of joy
In grateful chorus raise we
Let all within us
Praise his holy name
Christ is the Lord
Oh, praise his name forever
His pow’r and glory evermore proclaim
His pow’r and glory evermore proclaim

5. Joy To The World

George Frederic Handel and Isaac Watts

Verse 1

Let ev’ry heart prepare him room

And heav’n and nature sing
And heav’n, and heav’n, and nature sing

Joy to the world! The saviour reigns

Let men their songs employ
While fields and floods
Rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat, repeat the sounding joy

No more let sins and sorrows grow

Nor thorns infest the ground
He comes to make his blessings flow
Far as the curse is found
Far as the curse is found
Far as, far as the curse is found

He rules the world with truth and grace

And makes the nations prove
The glories of his righteousness
And wonders of his love
And wonders of his love
And wonders, wonders of his love

Born to give them second birth
Hark the herald an gels sing
