Verse 1
Joy has dawned upon the world,
Promised from creation
God’s salvation now unfurled,
Hope for every nation
Not with fanfares from above,
not with scenes of glory
But a humble gift of love,
Jesus born of Mary

Verse 2
Sounds of wonder fill the sky,
With the songs of angels
As the mighty prince of life,
Shelters in a stable
Hands that set the stars in place,
Shaped the earth in darkness
Cling now to a mother’s breast,
Vulnerable and helpless

Verse 3
Shepherds bow before the Lamb,
Gazing at the glory
Gifts of men from distant lands,
Prophesy the story
Gold: a King is born today,
Incense: God is with us
Myrrh: His death will make a way,
And by His blood he’ll win us

Verse 4
Son of Adam, son of heaven,
Given as a ransom
Reconciling God and man,
Christ our mighty champion
What a savior what a friend,
What a glorious mystery
Once a babe in Bethlehem,
Now the Lord of history

Ekklesia Muskogee is a reformed baptist church that gathers for worship in Muskogee, Oklahoma. We confess the 1689 second London baptist confession of faith. We affirm the five solas of the Reformation as well as the doctrines of grace (otherwise known as the five points of Calvinism), and each of our pastors would not be ashamed to be called a Calvinist. We are a church led by elders, of which there is a plurality (also called pastors and overseers in the Scriptures). Our mission is to make disciples, love cities, and plant churches.
