Adore

Adore, Come Let Us Adore

The Music of Christmas
I have a confession to make.  I’ve been listening to Christmas music for weeks now!  I love this time of year.  And I love the music of Christmas.

What other holiday has its own genre of music?  This music speaks to the greatest story ever told.  The story of when Jesus was born in humility & dwelt among us.  The Christmas story is the greatest story of grace the world has ever known.

Adore
One of my favorite things each year is to listen to all the new Christmas music that is being created, recorded & sung.  This song, Adore, on Chris Tomlin’s new album, has risen to the top for me.  Listen to Chris talk about the song then play this beautiful acoustic version.

Here’s the lyrics to this simple song for Christmas.

Adore
by Graham Kendrick & Martin Chalk

You stepped down from heaven
Humbly you came
God of all creation
Here with us
In a starlit manger
Emmanuel
Light of the world
Here to save

Adore, come let us adore
Oh come let us adore him!
The Lord, worship Christ the Lord
Let all that is within us
Adore

Wise men bring their treasures
Shepherds bow low
Angel voices sing of peace on earth
What have I to offer
To heaven’s King?
I will bring my life, my love, my all

Adore, come let us adore
Oh come let us adore him!
The Lord, worship Christ the Lord
Let all that is within us
Adore

Angels sing, praises ring to the newborn King
Peace on earth, here with us, joy awakening
At your feet, we fall

Adore, come let us adore
Oh come let us adore him!
The Lord, worship Christ the Lord
Let all that is within us
Adore
