Mary rides (Jesus is with us)

If you’re a fan of what we do, would you consider supporting us with a one-off or regular gift?
Resound Worship is a ministry of the Song and Hymn Writers Foundation, a charity dedicated to publishing quality worship songs as well as training, resourcing and influencing worship songwriters from the grass roots to published composers. We’d really value your support.

Mary rides
to the busy town of Bethlehem,
bears her child,
then she lays him in a manger bed:
God is born among us.

Woah! Jesus is with us.
Woah! Filling the world with hope.
Jesus is with us now.

Shepherds wait
in the quiet of a starry night,
heaven speaks
and the glory of the Lord shines bright:
angels sing his praises.

Wise men come
from a far-off land to honour him,
lay their gifts
as they bow before the King of kings:
he will reign forever.

Each year I find myself looking for a Christmas song for our all-age Carol Service. I want something a) catchy, b) that tells the story, c) that includes the familiar characters, d) that's not over-sentimental, e) that doesn't add things that aren't Scripture, and f) that has something to say to us today. Easy, right?! It's actually hard to find songs that fit the bill - so I had a go at writing one. You'll need to be the judge of whether I succeeded, but it's definitely gone down well here at Kings!
