We have a problem (Dec 23)

We have a problem, you and me
See we’ve all rebelled against holy God
You can argue your innocence
But death is the proof
Our rebellion is sin and sin leads to death
So we have a problem, you and me
For we all break God’s laws
We all fall short of His standards
Our greed, our anger, the little white lies
The road rage, the pride, the lust in our eyes
Our verdict is guilty, our judgement is death
But God. Is. Love
God our Father he made us
Male and female in his image he formed us
He loves us, He wants us
He knows our hearts
Those deep secret thoughts
And still He wants us
And still He loves us
So though our sin leaves us deserving of Hell
The story doesn’t end when we rebel
For as part of our Father’s amazing divine plan
Jesus the Son became a man
Born in Bethlehem that first Christmas night
Come to save us all from our plight
The perfect One, born in a manger
The spotless lamb, come to be our life changer
Out of love Jesus came down to the world He created
Even though He knew He would be rejected and hated
He spoke of the love the Father has for us
And in return we nailed him to a cross
The Son of God was hung on a tree
Bleeding He died there for you and for me
He took the punishment we deserve
He took our place in an act of amazing grace
But death could not hold Him down
On the third day He rose again triumphant
The power of sin and death was broken
Now we can be free because of His grace most abundant
We have a problem, you and me
But Jesus offers the solution for free
Forgiveness of sins, life everlasting
The greatest gift of all, that’s why at Christmas we sing
Joy to the world, our Lord has come!
