The Babe in the Manger

 This was sung in 2008 or 2009.  It's not the best of recording but I love that we have it to cherish. 
It's one of my favorite Christmas songs as it reminds us that the babe in the manger is Christ on the Cross. 

 ~ Merry Christmas! ~
 


 THE BABE IN THE MANGER
 
Do you worship the Babe in the manger,
But reject the Christ of the Cross?
Your redemption comes not by the manger,
But the death of Christ on the Cross.

Refrain: The Babe in the manger was God’s only Son,
Who came to the world to die.
The Babe in the manger could never have done
The work of His God on high.

 
If you worship the Babe in the manger,
But ignore the blood of God’s Son,
To you Christ is only a stranger,
Til you trust the work He has done.

 

The Babe left the manger and went to the Cross
To pay the wages of sin.
Your way of forgiveness is not by the Babe,
But the Christ who died for your sin.
