A blog about current Christian songs that have strong, deep lyrics and can be used in contemporary or blended Christian Worship formats.

I Believe by Natalie Grant

Today’s strong worship song is I Believe by Natalie Grant. This is a great Christmas ballad with a strong message. Many reduce the Christmas account to a fable or mere story. Natalie professes her faith in Christ and the Bible account of His birth. She also beautifully takes Christ beyond the manger to the cross where our salvation was purchased for us.

I Believe

In a land far away
Time stood still
Long ago
There were shepherds in fields
Or at least this is how
The story goes
The story goes
Woman
And an inn with no room
Born in a manger
Foretelling it, too
This is how
The story goes
But it is more than a fable
And it’s more than a fairytale
And more than my mind can conceive

I believe
The Wiseman saw
The baby boy the angels
called the son of God
Heaven’s child
The great I am
Born to take away my sins
through nailed pierced hands
Emmanuel has come
I believe

Two thousand years
Still the story lives on
God’s gift to us
Sent to earth Wrapped in flesh
His only son
His only son
And the heartbeat of heaven
Confounded our wisdom
But it’s still the simple truth
That sets me free

I believe
The Wiseman saw
The baby boy
the angels called the son of God Heaven’s child
The great I am
Born to take away my sins
through nailed pierced hands
Emmanuel has come
And I believe

Precious child How can it be that
God’s great plan
For history
Would send you to
The lonely tree
That you would come
For one like me

I believe In a cross
I believe he came For one,
he came for all
Heavens child became a man
Gave his life for me
In spite of all I am
I believe
I believe
Oh I believe
Christmas lives in me
I believe
