Sunday School music: “Messiah, Come and be our King.”

Posted on

Our children's Sunday school class is preparing songs for a Christmas program during worship on Sunday, December 19. One of the songs we are singing is not a traditional Advent or Christmas song, but it is perfect for the season. It also provided the basis for last week's Sunday school lesson as we talked through the meaning of the lyrics. We colored pictures of Advent wreaths and talked about those times when we feel like we are wandering and lost. We talked about sometimes feeling lonely. We talked about that feeling of needing a warm, forgiving hug after we've done something wrong. We talked about our need for Jesus to be with us and to change our hearts. And we sang…

 


MESSIAH

Someone's shouting from the dessert. Someone's shouting from the sea.
Someone's shouting from the mountain. Someone's shouting from the valley.

Messiah, Come and be our King.
Messiah, Come and be our King.

Someone's shouting from the city. I am young, I am cold.
Someone's shouting from the country. I am lonely, I am old.

Messiah, Come and be our King.
Messiah, Come and be our King.

Someone's shouting I am broken. Someone's shouting make me whole.
Someone's shouting come and change me. Someone's shouting save my soul.

Messiah, Come and be our King.
Messiah, Come and be our King.
