Last Sunday night was out Christmas Musical at Church.  Our expressive worship group performed in between the children and the adult choir (which I really should have been in , but I have missed to many practices.  Life ya know).  Myself and another wonderful lady from Church lead the expressive worship team.  I love helping them with this.  No matter if I am tired and worn out when I get to practice, they normally make me laugh somehow or another.  The name of the group is "Chosen", and the expressive worship consists of drama, movement, and sign language.  This group of teenagers are awesome to work with.  It is such a joy to watch God work through them.

This past Sunday we performed to "Jesus Messiah", by Chris Tomlin.  I wish I had a video, but I did not bring the video camera and I can not find my USB cable for the thing anyway. ~sigh~

I pulled a video off of YouTube of the song.  You can listen to the song while you read the rest of this post. Oh and you can watch the video also.  :)




He became sin
Who knew no sin


That we might become His Righteousness
He humbled himself and carried the cross
Love so amazing

Love so amazing

Jesus Messiah
Name above all names
Blessed Redeemer

The rescue for sinners
The ransom from Heaven


Jesus Messiah
Lord of all
His body the bread

His blood the wine
Broken and poured out all for love
The whole earth trembled
And the veil was torn
Love so amazing
Love so amazing, yeah
Jesus Messiah
Name above all names
Blessed Redeemer DSC_0993
The rescue for sinners
The ransom from Heaven
Jesus Messiah
Lord of all
All our hope is in You

All our hope is in You
All the glory to You, God
The light of the world
