1 Song: Christmas in Black & White Your favorite Christmas colors may be red and green Or you may be someone who likes a different scheme But once you realize what Christmas really means You ll see the colors that God meant for it to be! Christmas in black and white the truth about Jesus Christ There ain t no way you can be gray about this holiday! Christmas in black and white it s plain as day and night Look through God s Word and you ll see Christmas in black and white. So many people choose to not believe the truth-- They think of the Christmas story like a Saturday cartoon. We ve got to care enough to help them understand That Jesus came for every girl and boy, woman and man. Christmas in black and white the truth about Jesus Christ There ain t no way you can be gray about this holiday! Christmas in black and white it s plain as day and night Look through God s Word and you ll see Christmas in black and white. (Break) O Little town of Bethlehem, how still we see thee lie! Above thy deep and dreamless sleep the silent stars go by. Yet in they dark streets shineth the ever lasting Light, The hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight! Christmas in black and white the truth about Jesus Christ There ain t no way you can be gray about this holiday! Christmas in black and white it s plain as day and night Look through God s Word and you ll see Christmas in black and white. Christmas in black and white. Christmas in black and white.

2 Song: Let All Mortal Flesh/Silent Night Choir: Let all mortal flesh keep silence and with fear and trembling stand, Ponder nothing earthly minded for with blessings in His hand, Christ our God to earth descendeth Our full homage to demand. Solo: At His feet the six-winged seraph, cherubim with sleepless eye Veil their faces to the Presence as with ceaseless voice they cry, Choir: Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia, Lord most high. Silent night, holy night, all is calm, all is bright Round yon virgin mother and child, Holy infant so tender and mild. Sleep in heavenly peace, sleep in heavenly peace. Sleep in heavenly peace, sleep in heavenly peace. Solo: Let all mortal flesh keep silence. Let all mortal flesh keep silence. Sleep in heavenly peace, sleep in heavenly peace.

5 Song: Colors of His Love Gold is for the streets of heaven in our Father s home. When you or I become His child, those streets become our very own. Black is for my empty heart that s filled with only sin. The darkness separates us, but He made a way to enter in. He took a world of black and white, and with teardrops from above, He took a world of black and white, and with teardrops from above Red is for the blood of Jesus saving us from sin. God saw our need and made a way for all of us to live with Him. White is for the cleansing power, washing sins away. Trust Jesus as your Savior, and you can have new life in Him today. He took a world of black and white, and with teardrops from above, He took a world of black and white, and with teardrops from above Green is for new life in Him that lives on eternally Like babes, we must keep growing in the knowledge of our King. He took a world of black and white, and with teardrops from above, He took a world of black and white, and with teardrops from above

6 Song: Thank You for Coming Solo 1: If I had been in Bethlehem on that holy night when You were born to save us all from our sin. Solo 2: I wonder what I would have said standing by your manger bed. Could I find the words to describe your worth? Duet: Looking in your face. I guess the only thing I could say is: Choir: Thank You for coming. Thank you for loving. Thank you for making a way for us. Though we did not deserve you, God sent You to earth to show us what love means. Thank you for coming If I had been at Calvary the day you hung upon that tr ee Watching as You gave Your life for my sing. I wonder what I would have said, humbled by the blood You shed, Could I find the words to describe your worth? Looking in Your face. I guess the only thing I could say is Thank You for coming. Thank you for loving. Thank you for making a way for us. Though we did not deserve you, God sent You to earth to show us what love means. Thank you for coming Yea, Lord we greet Thee, Born this happy morning. Jesus, to thee be all glory given. Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing.
