christmas prayer lyrics – don moen

“christmas prayer”

the lights of the city shine bright red and green
but sometimes the season is not what it seems
in heartache or joy let me rest in your care
be near me lord jesus
this is my christmas prayer
the wise men brought treasures,
the shepherds bowed down
the angels were singing their glorious sound
i have no great riches, no gift to impart
what can i give you?
lord, i will give my heart
be near me lord jesus,
i ask you to stay
close by me forever, i pray
through the storm, through the night
hold me close, be my light, show the way
bless all of your children, we need your embrace
we hunger for mercy, and long for your grace
our grateful devotion is all we can bring
we praise you, we bless you
jesus, our savior and king
how great is the gift just to know you are there
be near me, lord jesus
be near me, lord jesus
this is my christmas prayer
