Track Name: Come Home Christmas
On the road to Bethlehem
Many miles lay in front of them
But someone had their back
And kept them on track
You see

Precious cargo
She carried Emmanuel
There is gonna be
A joyous jubilee
When he comes

Come home Christmas
Come home Christmas
We’ve been waiting for you

Anticipation
For the day to come
He’s on his way
Arriving Christmas Day
Just wait

Come home Christmas
Come home Christmas
We’ve been waiting for you

Brothers and sisters
Can you hear those whispers?
The beautiful call
A song for us all
To sing

Come home Christmas
Come home Christmas
We’ve been waiting for you

Come home Christmas
Come home Christmas
We’ve been waiting for you
Track Name: Bethlehem Sky
In the town of Bethlehem
They gathered ‘round the manger and
Witnessed to the coming of the King
Underneath a star that shone so bright
Like a beacon illuminates the night

Look to the Bethlehem sky, there’s
A sign you can’t deny for you
Under the Bethlehem sky, there’s
Miracles before our eyes, it’s true

Fear not; I bring you joy
In the form of a baby boy
Unto you is born on Christmas day
Overhead a star intensifies
Guiding like a laser in the night

Look to the Bethlehem sky, there’s
A sign you can’t deny for you
Under the Bethlehem sky, there’s
Miracles before our eyes, it’s true

If you’re feeling lost and lonely
Rest assured, the one and only
Came for you upon this Christmas Day
Lift your eyes upon the satellite
The very star that shone that Holy Night

Look to the Bethlehem sky, there’s
A sign you can’t deny for you
Under the Bethlehem sky, there’s
Miracles before our eyes, it’s true
Track Name: A Typical Night at the Inn
Tonight at the inn
The rooms are full the spectacle begins
Again and again
The people come from lands I’ve never been

Why can’t it be, a typical night at the inn?
At the inn, a typical night at the inn

A knock at the door
A man and woman about to add one more
The look on her face
Though weary she still carries on with grace

This may not be, a typical night at the inn
At the inn, a typical night at the inn

Something tells me tonight will not be ordinary
I can sense a change; a presence on this day

A star overhead
Shining on my stable and a bed
What child is this?
Lying in the manger as he is

This will not be, a typical night at the inn
At the inn, a typical night at the inn

I make the family comfortable in this sanctuary
I see our new king; this changes everything

Crowds gather round
Shepherds come from every part of town
They spread the word
And everybody’s amazed at what they’ve heard

This has not been, a typical night at the inn
Track Name: Town of David (Merry Christmas)
In a manger
As another sun went down in Bethlehem
Laid the Savior
Little did they know that he had come for them

Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas, to you
Town of David, you were chosen, to renew

There were strangers
Looking out of place but no one knew just why
At the manger
You could hear them softly sing this lullaby

Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas, to you
Town of David, you were chosen, to renew

Mary, could you tell?
As you traveled day by day
You carried Immanuel
So he’d carry us one day

Now the shepherds
Heard exactly what the night was all about
All together
They were witness to the rising of the crown

Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas, to you
Town of David, you were chosen, to renew
Little savior, Merry Christmas, to you
