  4. Lyrics for Worship on the Lawn 12/20/20

    O Come All Ye Faithful

    O come, all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant
    O come, ye, o come, ye, to Bethlehem
    Come and behold Him, born the king of angels

    O come let us adore Him, O come let us adore Him,
    O come let us adore Him, Christ the Lord

    Sing, choirs of angels, sing in exultation
    Sing, all ye citizens of heaven above
    Glory to God, glory in the highest

    Yea, Lord, we greet Thee, born this happy morning
    Jesus, to Thee be all glory given
    Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing


    Come, Thou Long Expected Jesus

    Come, Thou long expected Jesus, born to set Thy people free
    From our fears and sins release us; let us find our rest in Thee
    Israel’s strength and consolation, hope of all the earth Thou art
    Dear desire of every nation, joy of every longing heart

    Born Thy people to deliver, born a child and yet a king
    Born to reign in us forever, now Thy gracious kingdom bring
    By Thine own eternal Spirit, rule in all our hearts alone
    By Thine all sufficient merit, raise us to Thy glorious throne


    What Child is This?

    What child is this, who laid to rest, on Mary’s lap is sleeping?
    Whom angels greet with anthems sweet, while shepherds watch are keeping
    This, this is Christ the King, whom shepherds guard and angels sing
    Haste, haste to bring Him laud, the babe the son of Mary

    Why lies He in such mean estate, where ox and ass are feeding?
    Good Christians fear, for sinners here, the silent Word is pleading
    Nails, spear shall pierce Him through, the cross be borne for me, for you
    Hail, hail the Word made flesh, the babe the son of Mary

    So bring Him incense, gold, and myrrh, come peasant, king, to own Him
    The King of kings, salvation brings, let loving hearts enthrone Him
    Raise, raise the song on high, the virgin sings her lullaby
    Joy, joy for Christ is born, the babe the son of Mary


    We Fall Down

    We fall down and lay our crowns at the feet of Jesus
    The greatness of His mercy and love
    At the feet of Jesus

    And we cry, “Holy, holy, holy”
    We cry, “Holy, holy, holy”
    We cry, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lamb!”


    Great Are You, Lord

    You give life, You are love, You bring light to the darkness
    You give hope, You restore every heart that is broken
    Great are You, Lord

    It’s Your breath in our lungs
    So we pour out our praise, we pour out our praise
    It’s Your breath in our lungs
    So we pour out our praise to You only

    All the earth will shout Your praise
    Our hearts will cry, these bones will sing
    Great are You, Lord

  5. Lyrics for Worship on the Lawn 12/13/20

    My Soul Magnifies the Lord

    Good news of great joy, For ev’ry woman ev’ry man
    This will be a sign to you, A baby born in Bethlehem
    Come and worship do not be afraid

    A company of angels, Glory in the highest
    And on the earth a peace among, Those on whom His favor rests
    Come and worship do not be afraid

    My soul my soul magnifies the Lord
    My soul magnifies the Lord
    He has done great things for me
    Great things for me

    Unto you a child is born, Unto us a Son is giv’n
    Let ev’ry heart prepare His throne, Let ev’ry nation under Heav’n
    Come and worship do not be afraid


     Hark, the Herald Angels Sing

    Hark the herald angels sing, Glory to the newborn King
    Peace on earth and mercy mild, God and sinners reconciled
    Joyful all ye nations rise, Join the triumph of the skies
    With th’angelic hosts proclaim Christ is born in Bethlehem
    Hark the herald angels sing, Glory to the newborn King

    Christ by highest heav’n adored, Christ the everlasting Lord
    Late in time behold Him come, Offspring of the Virgin’s womb
    Veiled in flesh the Godhead see, Hail th’incarnate Deity
    Pleased as man with men to dwell, Jesus our Emmanuel
    Hark the herald angels sing, Glory to the newborn King

    Hail the heav’n-born Prince of Peace, Hail the Sun of Righteousness
    Light and life to all He brings, Ris’n with healing in His wings
    Mild He lays His glory by, Born that man no more may die
    Born to raise the sons of earth, Born to give them second birth
    Hark the herald angels sing, Glory to the newborn King


    Here I am to Worship

    Light of the world, You stepped down into darkness
    Opened my eyes let me see
    Beauty that made, This heart adore You
    Hope of a life spent with You

    So here I am to worship
    Here I am to bow down
    Here I am to say that You’re my God
    And You’re altogether lovely
    Altogether worthy, Altogether wonderful to me

    King of all days, Oh so highly exalted
    Glorious in heaven above
    Humbly You came, To the earth You created
    All for love’s sake became poor

    And I’ll never know how much it cost, To see my sin upon that cross (2X)


    To Our God

    Up from the ashes, Your love has brought us
    Out of the darkness and into the light
    Lifting our sorrows, Bearing our burdens, Healing our hearts

    To our God we lift up one voice, To our God we lift up one song
    To our God we lift up one voice, Singing hallelujah

    Chains have been broken, Eyes have been opened
    An army of dry bones is starting to rise
    Death is defeated, We are victorious
    For You are alive

    Hallelujah, Singing hallelujah (3X)

    Make His praise, Glorious glorious glorious
    For His name is, Glorious glorious glorious
    Make His praise, Glorious glorious glorious
    Shout His name, Glorious glorious glorious


    O Come All Ye Faithful

    O come, all ye faithful, Joyful and triumphant
    O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem
    Come and behold Him, Born the King of angels

    O come, let us adore Him
    O come, let us adore Him
    O come, let us adore Him, Christ the Lord

    Sing, choirs of angels, Sing in exultation
    Sing, all you citizens of heav’n above
    Glory to God, Glory in the highest

    Yea, Lord, we greet Thee, Born this happy morning
    Jesus, to Thee be all glory giv’n
    Word of the Father, Now in flesh appearing

  6. Sara and José Miñán’s Memorial Service, Live-Stream, Redeemer Lutheran Church on Saturday, December 5th at 11AM

    Sara and José Miñán’s memorial service is Saturday, December 5th at 11:00AM at Redeemer Lutheran Church (1500 W. Anderson Lane) in Austin, Texas. There will be a live-stream of the service at Sara was a teacher at Redeemer Lutheran School.

    A Memorial Service Program can be viewed and downloaded at:

    All attendees will be required to wear a face mask and sit in household groups or as individuals physically-distanced by about six feet. Their auditorium will be able to accommodate about 200 people with these restrictions. They will also make available an overflow room for another 100 people, should that be needed.

    On Tuesday, November 24th, José and Sara were in a fatal auto accident over the Thanksgiving holiday. These dear Hopites are greatly missed already and we are grieving this deep loss to our church family. Sara and José loved to talk about Jesus, sharing their faith in person and online. No one can remember these two without seeing a smile on their faces or a look of concern for other’s difficulties. And laughter, much laughter was heard in our years with them.

    Our two faithful friends served us whole-heartedly and cheerfully. Sara worked in both the HopeKids’ Ministry and with the Women of Hope; José was part of the Men of Hope and told his story of following to Jesus for Hope’s book, Reset. They were behind-the-scene servants in many other ways and served the Lord Jesus Christ and Hope Chapel well.

    They leave behind their two beloved sons, Eli and Ander, in whom they took great joy, and families both in the USA and Spain. We are praying for comfort for all of them.

    Though we are left behind for now, we know as José’s Facebook page said, “Follow Jesus,” and they have and are now with Him.

    Donations can be made at through Realm. In the Fund drop down menu, choose, “EAM Benevolence.” All the funds will go to the estate supporting the boys.

    Links coming soon where you can upload video (1080p or less) and written messages, as well as, photos for their sons. Make sure to add how you know the Miñáns, “Hi, I’m…and I know your parents from….”

    Video or write down a memory. Remind us of how funny José was, how clever Sara would be when discussing ethical issues of the day, what José’s work ethic for his business was, how Sara loved teaching, times you spent with any or all of them, meaningful conversations, parties and celebrations, general life. Can you remember something José or Sara said to you about Eli or Ander?

    Collect your photos and we’ll have a place for you to upload them for the boys to keep throughout their lives. Captioning photos of when, where, and who’s in the photos will be helpful when they look at them now and in the future.
