A Great Joy, That’s What Noel Means

Let Christmas be the time to celebrate,
The time to lay down anger, strife, and hate.
For Jesus came to bring His peace to earth.
A peace within the hearts who know His birth.

A great Joy,
That’s what Noel means.
A great Joy,
That’s what Christmas brings.
For Jesus Christ was born, a gift for you and me.
And by walking in His Spirit we’re set free.

If we admit our need, He gently comes,
And we are joined to God’s own perfect Son,
And we are born into God’s family,
So from our awful sin we can be free.

A great Joy,
That’s what Noel means.
A great Joy,
That’s what Christmas brings.
For Jesus Christ was born, a gift for you and me.
And by walking in His Spirit we’re set free.

Now, everyone who comes to Him, receives,
Salvation to each sinner who believes,
With Him, we sit in places heavenly,
So step by step His Spirit sets us free.

A great Joy,
That’s what Noel means.
A great Joy,
That’s what Christmas brings.
For Jesus Christ was born, a gift for you and me.
And by walking in His Spirit we’re set free.

All those who seek to know Him find Him still,
And He reveals the wisdom of His will,
And gives us of His power to obey,
For He is holy and He is the Way.

A great Joy,
That’s what Noel means.
A great Joy,
That’s what Christmas brings.
For Jesus Christ was born, a gift for you and me.
And by walking in His Spirit we’re set free.
