MP3: Hallelujah To The Baby Who Came

Hallelujah! to the Baby Who Came - Song History

Words & Music: Dennis Jernigan
Received: November 8, 2012
For the past year and a half, I have been going every Thursday to the campus of Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, OK and mentoring students either on song receiving or in life/identity issues. On this particular Thursday afternoon, I had an opening in my schedule and sat down at the keyboard and began to play. Before I even knew it, I had begun singing a simple little melody and lyrics relating to the Christmas season:
A baby came to earth, born in a manger.
Came to save fallen man.
He came to be the Solid Rock where we could stand!
After a few minutes, I had received the entire first verse and chorus! The more I sang the song over the next couple of days, the more it became apparent that God had given me a worship chorus for the celebration of the birth of Christ. The next week, I shared the song and taught it to my home church…and the glory of God began to fall in the place! After that time of worship, Melinda (my wife) asked me, “Did you design the bridge so people would be led into singing in the Spirit?” My reply? “That’s exactly what I did!”

I know many people do not feel comfortable in releasing themselves in song – making melody in their hearts to the Lord in a spontaneous fashion. As the Lord inspired the bridge, He led me to use the words ‘Merry Christmas’ as a part of the bridge, which are innocent and innocuous. As the various layers of melody and lyrics begin to unfold, it is quite easy to simply begin exalting the Lord with your own ‘random’ words of exaltation. My prayer is that, just as happens in my living room church, you will experience the glory of God as you worship Jesus with this song!
