Born That We May Have Life Christmas Song

Born That We May Have Life

Year: 2009

Written By: Chris Tomlin, Ed Cash, Matt Maher

It may veer between John Cougar Mellencamp's 'Jack and Diane' and a Coldplay anthem yet there is no mistaking the overtly religious theme to 'Born That We May Have Life' from Grammy nominated Chris Tomlin. This is taking it right back to the start, shorn of the excesses of the modern Christmasses. And while this certainly has appeal it may not be something for those hung up on sleigh bells and simply having a wonderful time. 'Born That We May Have Life' is taken from Tomlin's 2009 festive offering 'Glory in the Highest: Christmas Songs'.

 

 

Born That We May Have Life Lyrics

 

No reputation, no stately bearing
No palace bed for royalty
But a star in the Heavens, a sign full of wonder
Announcing the coming of the King of kings

Rejoice, o world, your Savior has come
Through the love of a virgin's womb
Son of God, Son of man, born that we may have life
You were born that we may have life

A throne in a manger, the cross in a cradle
The hidden revealing this glorious plan
Of a Child who would suffer, a Child who would conquer
The sin of every woman, the sin of every man

Rejoice, o world, your Savior has come
Through the love of a virgin's womb
Son of God, son of man, born that we may have life
You were born that we may have life

Rejoice, o world, your Savior has come
Through the love of a virgin's womb
Son of God, Son of man
You were born that we may have life

Rejoice, o world, your Savior has come
Through the love of a virgin's womb
Son of God, Son of man, born that we may have life
You were born that we may have life
You were born that we may have life

Rejoice, o world, rejoice
Rejoice, o world, Hallelujah, the Savior has come
Rejoice, o world, join with the angels
Rejoice, o world, rejoice

Rejoice, o world, for the King of kings
And the Lord of lords
Rejoice, o world, a Savior is born
Who brings us life and brings peace

Born that we may have life
You were born that we may have life
You were born that we may have life
