  • 03:40 Lyrics Happy New Year

     

    They’ve clearly eaten too much turkey or need more sleep at night

    Skipped Christmas straight to New Year, in what world is that alright?

    Just how did we lost thirty day and nobody is stunned

    Hello!  Here is a calendar, this topic isn’t done

    There’s no way the ball has fallen in New York , that’s just too weird

    There’s no time machine to New Year’s day, Impossible, absurd

    It couldn’t be Ash Wednesday, I know Easter hasn’t come

    Call the doctor.  Am I crazy, cause my brain is feeling numb.

    (Chorus)

    It’s time for Advent Jubilee, so set your hearts to wow!

    A New Year celebration, God with us Emmanual

    When Christ returns in glory, every knee is gonna bow

    Halleluia, it’s New Year’s Day right now.

    (Vesper)

    When it’s New Years in Siberia, they swim in frozen lakes

    In Bolivia, they break a tooth on coins in chocolate cake

    In Switzerland at Midnight, they drop Ice-cream on the floor

    And in Peru, they punch and kick to even up the score.

    Instead this New Years fun is Purple robes on Father Paul

    Look!  There’s purple on the altar and there’s purple in the hall

    Even grandmas going Emo mixing purple in her hair

     If purple were a dollar, we’d be purple millionaires!

    (Chorus)

    WHAT’S CRADVENT? – Blaises Song

    Words and music  by Aaron Thompson ©2018

    What’s Cradvent?  What’s Cradvent?

    When your Advent Wreaths on remote control,

    you may have Cradvent. 

    When your Manger doubles as a candy bowl,

    you may have Cradvent. 

    Your justified, and proud to say; “Bulbs down, job done, Tree thrown away”, and its 7 A.M. on December 26th!

    You buy boxing gloves for Cyber Monday fights,

    you may have Cradvent. 

    You decorate your Turkey with Christmas Lights

    you may have Cradvent. 

    Jacob Marley's ghost visits you from hell you say "Sit down, relax, boy you look swell!

    Well, you may have Cradvent, right here in Universal Town!

    You eat twelve day feast in a single day.

    you may have Cradvent. 

    You think Balthasar is a Shakespeare play.

    you may have Cradvent. 

    You tell the Drummers and the pipers that you cut the show, one maid can milk,

    let the others go, you may have Cradvent right here in Universal Town.

    I’m telling you…Keradvent!  It’s coming….For all of us!

  • 02:40 Lyrics There is a Light

    There is a voice that spoke that spoke the beginning
    Molded the stars and set the sun spinning
    There is a voice that sung to the emptiness; light, There is a light

    There is a God who shaped every angel
    Pillars of earth and heaven’s cathedral
    There is a God who rended the darkness with light, there is a light

    (Chorus)
    And the darkness will not overcome the light
    No the darkness will not overcome the light
    Lift your candle, don’t be afraid of the night.  There is a light.


    There is a hand that holds every people
    Woman and man in dome or in steeple
    There is a hand that wakens the sleeper, arise, there is a light


    People of Light though scattered and broken
    Dark is the night, but love has been spoken
    Children of God, love is a lamp in the night, there is a light.

    (Chorus) 
    And the darkness will not overcome the light
    No the darkness will not overcome the light
    Lift your candle, don’t be afraid of the night.
    There is a light.

  • 02:56 Story Lyrics O Kumbaya Emmanuel

    O Kumbaya Emanuel O Kumbaya Emanuel

    VERSE 1

    He speaks for God, He’s the Oracle Isaiah, 

    Got books on the Bible record player

    Word; it’s the prophet’s job tell people bout the love of God
    “Give Warning”: No Idolatry
    “Give Warning”: We are family
    Children of one God above

    REFRAIN
    O Kumbaya Emanuel O Kumbaya Emanuel
    Lord, we need you, come by here
    Mend our hearts and calm our fear
    O Kumbaya Emanuel

    VERSE 2
    For unto us the son of God is given,
    Dear Mary blessed among women
    Your son wrapped in mortal flesh
    God’s Light in an earthly creche
    “Do justice” : Treat the poor fairly
    “Love Kindness”: We are family
    Children of one God above

    O Kumbaya Emanuel O Kumbaya Emanuel
    Lord, we need you, come by here
    Mend our hearts and calm our fear
    O Kumbaya Emanuel

    BRIDGE
    If I may speak so candidly
    In rhyme without profanity
    It seems like pure insanity
    This love, called Christianity
    The cross of life so blistery
    Our Suffering is mystery
    Its odd and contradictory
    Through death comes life and victory

    REFRAIN
