The Reason? The Majesty!

The reason for the season

The bright and Morningstar 

Immanuel the Savior

Come down from heav’n above

The Word from the beginning

Messiah, King of kings

The Ruler of Creation

Behold the Great I Am

Maker, Teacher, Counselor

Father, Holy One

Jehovah-Rapha, Alpha Omega

Judge, Exhalted One

The Lamb of God

The Prince of Peace

True Light, the Bread, the Vine

My Advocate, my Shade, my Refuge

Majesty on High.
