Because You Came

Story Behind The Song

In June of 2013, a publisher asked me if I'd be willing to take a crack at writing a Christmas song for Susan Boyle. It didn't work out, but the opportunity was a really growing experience and one that changed me as a writer.

Oh tender child, so meek and mild
When you're older I've much to tell
An angel said you'd come
That I would be the one to raise Immanuel

So heaven bent down low
To change the life I'd known
By giving me the greatest gift of all

Now stars above all brightly shine
Down on you, my son, divine
How can this be?

Because You came
I realize who I was born to be
And even though nobody else could see
A brighter vision beams
Now that You're here
This weary world at last can find some peace
Discover all the hope and cheer it needs
The herald angels sing

Oh newborn son, my chosen one
With humble grace you came
In manger, rough and cold
Where shepherds, they behold, on lonely plains

Your infant light is blazing bright
Against the backdrop of the night
This world is blessed!

All the earth will celebrate this day
Singing songs and tidings filled with joy

I just threw out my jingle bells CD, so I can make room for this wonderful piece of work. I love it.

SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL!---THANK YOU!--just what I needed to hear today!--JOE.
