I Stand Corrected

Last week I posted a (bizarre) video of what I called The Best Christmas Song Ever. Well, I stand corrected. Shortly after I first heard that song, I heard this song for the first time. As good as that other song was, this one is better. Better in a different way, but really altogether better.

It's totally beautiful and I could never in my life have so eloquently put these thoughts to music. Oh, and Cari, this one includes Jesus. :)

Here's Relient K singing "I Celebrate the Day" from their album Let It Snow, Baby, Let It Reindeer. (Lyrics below)

I Celebrate The Day

And with this Christmas wish is missed
The point I could convey
If only I could find the words to say to let You know how much You've touched my life
Because here is where You're finding me, in the exact same place as New Year's eve
And from a lack of my persistency
We're less than half as close as I want to be

And the first time
That You opened Your eyes did You realize that You would be my Savior
And the first breath that left Your lips
Did You know that it would change this world forever

And so this Christmas I'll compare the things I felt in prior years
To what this midnight made so clear
That You have come to meet me here

To look back and think that
This baby would one day save me
In the hope that what You did
That you were born so I might live
To look back and think that
This baby would one day save me

And I, I celebrate the day
That You were born to die
So I could one day pray for You to save my life
