Now Let Me Share it with You!

When Jesus Christ was born upon the earth,
Son of God, yet fully man,
His Father sent a choir of angels
To announce the good news.

“Glory to God, peace on the earth,
Good will from God to man. Christ is born.”

I’ve heard the Good News; I believe it.
Now let me share it with you.

When Jesus Christ arose from earthly death,
Son of man, yet fully God,
His Heavenly Father sent an angel
To announce the good news.

“He is not here; the tomb is empty.
Christ lives again. Go tell everyone!”

I’ve heard the Good News; I believe it.
Now let me share it with you.

About This Song:
Okay. So late September isn’t the beginning of the Christmas season. And Easter is even further away.

But that doesn’t make the message of “Now Let Me Share it with You” any less relevant for Believers.

God used angels throughout the Bible. More in the Old Testament than in the New Testament. They were messengers. And the messenger-angels in this song–as in the Scriptures it’s based on–announced the best of Good News, Jesus’ birth as a human baby and His resurrection from death.

The first stanza is based on Luke 2:13-14…
13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,

14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven,
    and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
(NIV)

The second stanza comes from Mark 16:4-6…
4 But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. 5 As they entered the tomb, they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed.

6 “Don’t be alarmed,” he said. “You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him.”
(NIV)

I wasn’t alive at the time of Jesus’ birth or resurrection. But I’ve heard those stories many times, and I believe they’re true.

Now that I’ve used this song to preach to myself, I’ve also shared the Good News with you.
