Psalm 124 - Christmas is True

If Messiah did not come and God walked not among us-
Let the church remember and say -
If the Child had not been born to us -
When they who hated Him rose up
Then they would have buried our joy in His advent
When they vented their spleen against Him
Their rage would have drowned our praise
Their flood of correctness would have silenced our songs
Diversity would have buried our souls

But Emmanuel came,
We see Him, and are delivered for praise
He preserves us from their rending lies
He shields our hearts from ambush
From their hatred we are freed
Freed to love our Master
His nativity we proclaim!
Our salvation is in the Babe with no bed
He was born to redeem heaven and earth and us - His own.
