about

This is the demo music for a Christmas musical I wrote in 2002. I've recently added a new song and updated the script.

The Perfect Christmas is a modern, fun-filled, heartwarming church musical that will usher in the gift of Jesus to your congregation and community through hilarious antics, powerful songs, and a trip across time to historic Bethlehem.

Track Name: The Perfect Christmas
[Choir is dressed in warm Christmas clothes and are “out on the town.” They come in during the first section and go to their spots, spread out in groups.]

The Perfect Christmas is the one we’ll have this year
All the family will be near and it will be
The perfect Christmas full of joy and cheer
Let’s celebrate the perfect Christmas with the ones we love
Making memories of the times we share
The perfect Christmas is finally here
It’s a Christmas that’s filled with love.

The perfect Christmas; Mark is home from C.S.U
My vacation’s overdue but now it’s here
The perfect Christmas; bonus revenue
And the mistletoe’s over you. [holds up a mistletoe and puckers up]
Since when does he need a mistletoe. [kiss on the cheek]

Celebrate the perfect Christmas, joy and laughter fill the air
Giving gifts to those we love to show how much we care.
The perfect Christmas for me and for you
Is a Christmas that’s filled with joy.

[Kids run in from the back just in time to sing]
The perfect Christmas; many presents by the tree
Some for you and lots for me; it’s gonna be
The perfect Christmas, just wait and see
Let’s celebrate—I can’t wait for Christmas morning
I’ll be up at 6 AM.
Just because you’re old that doesn’t mean you can sleep in
The perfect Christmas for girls and boys
Is a Christmas that’s filled with toys!

Celebrate the perfect Christmas, joy and laughter fill the air
Giving gifts to those we love to show how much we care.

[Choir quickly move toward the stage and arrive in time to sing]
The perfect Christmas is remembering the night
That the Savior came to life in Bethlehem
The perfect Christmas is about the Child
So don’t forget the perfect Christmas isn’t gifts we give
It’s the way we live throughout the year
The perfect Christmas is many things
It’s a Christmas that’s filled with joy and hope for all the world
It’s a Christmas filled with love!
Track Name: Get There
[Lights up on the airport only]
It’s hard to believe how fast this year’s gone by
It’s funny to think how much we’ve changed
When we get together for this special holiday
Somehow all the most important things are still the same

We’ve got to get there, we’ve got to get there
Though the road is long, we will journey on until we reach our destination
We’ve got to get there, we’ve got to get there
What we’ve been waiting for is finally in store when we get there

[Lights up on Bethlehem only]
I still can’t believe that this is happening
I’m feeling completely overwhelmed
You can see our circumstances make it hard for us to go
We need to get there fast, but we’ve got to take it slow

[All lights up]
We’ve got to get there, we’ve got to get there
Though the road is long, we will journey on until we reach our destination
We’ve got to get there, we’ve got to get there
What we’ve been waiting for is finally in store when we get there

On this road of life some are content not to go
On this road of life some cannot wait to hit the road
Either way when you come to a day, when you know that you’re supposed to go
Understand that it’s all in the plan and joy is waiting at the end.

We’ve got to get there, we’ve got to get there
Though the road is long, we will journey on until we reach our destination
We’ve got to get there, we’ve got to get there
What we’ve been waiting for is finally in store when we
Get there, get there, get there

We’ve got to get there
Though the road is long, we will journey on until we reach our destination
We’ve got to get there, we’ve got to get there
What we’ve been waiting for is finally in store when we get there
What we’ve been waiting for is finally in store when we get there
When we get there
Track Name: No Room
[Narrator is singing near Mary and Joseph as they act out the song]

Weary travelers on the road to Bethlehem
In a hurry for the time was close at hand
Trying desperately to find a place to stay
Sighing helplessly each time they turned away

[They walk to the other side of the stage and back to find another inn. Lights out on the inn while it is being changed to look like another inn. Meanwhile, choir gets into place on the risers.]
There was no room at the inn for the mother great with child
So in a manger she placed the baby meek and mild
He was the Savior of all even from the very start
There was no room at the inn but there’s room in my heart.

[They arrive at the new inn with a new innkeeper and ask:]
Will you help us can’t you see my wife is due
We’ve been everywhere and there’s not a vacant room
We’ll take anything it doesn’t have to be the best
All we’re asking for is a simple place to rest

[The innkeeper leads them away to the stable. Lights out on the inn, up on the choir]
There was no room at the inn for the mother great with child
So in a manger she placed the baby meek and mild
He was the Savior of all even from the very start
There was no room at the inn but there’s room in my heart.

Every heart’s a home and there’s only so much room
When the Savior comes to call, is it already consumed
Let us empty everything and prepare a place for Him to stay
We welcome You, Lord Jesus come be born inside our hearts today.

[Lights come up where the inn was, and now it is a stable with a manger and Mary places the baby in the manger]
There was no room at the inn for the mother great with child
So in a manger she placed the baby meek and mild
He was the Savior of all even from the very start
There was no room at the inn but there’s room in my heart.

Away in a manger no crib for a bed
The little Lord Jesus lay down His sweet head
The stars in the sky look down where He lay
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay

[Lights out on choir]
He was the Savior of all even from the very start.
Track Name: Glory to God
Do not be afraid, I bring you good new today
Unto you is born a baby boy, Christ the Lord
And suddenly there were with the angels
A multitude of heavenly hosts
Praising God and saying

Glory to God in the highest heaven
Peace on the earth and goodwill towards men
Go see the child laying in a manger
Jesus the Christ is born in Bethlehem

Glory to God in the highest heaven
To you is born a baby boy
This is our God laying in a manger
Sent from His throne to fill the world with joy.

Down from the heavens He’s come as a baby
Into the world on this holy night
Wrapped in a blanket inside of a manger
He’s the Messiah so run to the site!

Glory to God in the highest heaven
Peace on the earth and goodwill towards men
Go see the child laying in a manger
Jesus the Christ is born in Bethlehem

Go find the babe in the City of David
Not in a palace like earthly Kings
Born in a stable that all might be able
To come and behold Him, He’s the Lord of everything!

Glory to God in the highest heaven
Peace on the earth and goodwill towards men
Go see the child laying in a manger
Jesus the Christ is born in Bethlehem

Noel, noel, noel, noel.
Born is the King of Israel.
Noel, noel, noel, noel
Born is the King of Israel!

The first noel the angels did say!

Glory to God in the highest heaven
Peace on the earth and goodwill towards men
Go see the child laying in a manger
Jesus the Christ is born in Bethlehem

Glory to God in the highest heaven
To you is born a baby boy
This is our God laying in a manger
Sent from His throne to fill the world with joy.

Glory to God, glory to God
Jesus the Christ is born in Bethlehem
Glory to God!
Track Name: He's Come to Love Us All
Things are not the same since the moment that you came
No one’s told us what’s going on, but I think we know
You’re the Son of God, come to save the world
But You were born in a cattle stall, just so You could show

We might be young, we might be small
We might be less than three feet tall
We don’t have to be shepherds or kings
You’ve come to love us all.

I may not be strong
Or feel like I belong
And I may not know many things
But I know You’re God
They’ve come from very far to see just who You are
Stay here forever please live with me, here inside my heart.

We might be young, we might be small
We might be less than three feet tall
We don’t have to be shepherds or kings
You’ve come to love us all.

I don’t have money or talents to bring
Nothing I have seems enough
What can I give to a Heavenly King?
All that He needs is love!

We might be young, we might be small
We might be less than three feet tall
We don’t have to be shepherds or kings
You’ve come to love us all.

We might be young, we might be small
We might be less than three feet tall
We don’t have to be shepherds or kings
You’ve come to love us all.

We don’t have to be shepherds or kings
You’ve come to love us all.
Track Name: The Wonder of All of the World
[Joseph]
Who could believe this is happening to me
I'm just a humble man
I'm not accustomed to angels and kings
All this is more than I planned
But somehow these meager surroundings became
The place all of history forever would change

The wonder of all of the world on this night
Is here in a stable as God's perfect Child
And into our hearts shines this Heavenly Light
The wonder of all of the world
The wonder of all of the world

[Dad]
Thousands of nights have gone by since his birth
But none have been quite the same
So many people choose not to believe
Ignoring what Christmas means
But whether it's Holy or just holiday
He is the reason we all celebrate

The wonder of all of the world on this night
Is here in a stable as God's perfect Child
And into our hearts shines this Heavenly Light
The wonder of all of the world
The wonder of all of the world

Every year late in December
We take the time to remember
[Both]
Whether with families or strangers
To worship the King in the manger

The wonder of all of the world on this night
Is here in a stable as God's perfect Child
And into our hearts shines this Heavenly Light
The wonder of all of the world
The wonder of all of the world
The wonder of all of the world
Track Name: This Little Child
This little child has come to set us free.
This little child has come to claim the victory

I was a man lost on my way, caught in a mess of sin
I was a woman locked up in chains
Hope disappeared from within
I knew I could not escape condemnation
But Jesus has come to bring eternal salvation
That’s why we sing

This little child has come to set us free
This little child has come to claim the victory
He’s come to set us free
That is why we sing
And though He’s a child
He’s also a King
And so we worship this little child.

We are a people condemned by our sin
Facing a deathly price
But Jesus has come to take it away
Living a sinless life
When He gave His life to buy our redemption
Our sin disappeared through His divine resurrection
Now we are saved

This little child has come to set us free
This little child has come to claim the victory
He’s come to set us free
That is why we sing
And though He’s a child
He’s also a King
And so we worship this little child.

Why would He come from a Heavenly throne?
Why would He give up His life for my own?
Nobody loves me the way that He loves me
And that is why we sing, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!

He’s come to set us free
That is why we sing
And though He’s a child
He’s also our King
And so we worship this little child.

He’s come to set us free
That is why we sing
And though He’s a child
He’s also our King
And so we worship this little child.

And though He’s a child
He’s also our King
And so we worship this little
Worship this little child.

This little child, come to set us free
This little child will claim the victory

This little child, come to set us free
This little child will claim the victory

And though He’s a child
He’s also our King
And so we worship this little child.

And though He’s a child
He’s also our King
And so we worship this little child.
Track Name: Only The Beginning
What can I do to describe how I am feeling
What can I say to a son who’s also my God
I know You’re a child, but do You already see Your future
This is the best day of our lives.

This is only the beginning of a life that alters destiny
You’ve come into the world as a miracle
But the miracles have just begun
This is only the beginning.

I do not know what this sacred life has in store for you
But I know, you are here for marvelous things
And I’ve never seen so many signs and wonders
But You are the reason I believe

And it’s only the beginning of a life that alters destiny
You’ve come into the world as a miracle
But the miracles have just begun
This is only the beginning.

I can’t forsee what kind of things You’ll do while You’re here
Will You be meek, will You display Your power
Will there be pain so You can claim the love of manking
I’ll have to take it one day at a time.

This is only the beginning of a life that alters destiny
You’ve come into the world as a miracle
But the miracles have just begun
This is only the beginning.

Of a life that alters destiny
You’ve come into the world as a miracle
But the miracles have just begun
And it all begins with You my Son
This is only the beginning!
Track Name: Christmas Carol Medley
Joy to the world the Lord is come
Let earth receive her King
Let every heart prepare Him room
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and heaven and nature sing.

Joy to the world the Lord is come
Let earth receive her King
Let every heart prepare Him room
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and heaven and nature sing.

Good Christian men rejoice with heart and soul and voice
Give Ye heed to what we say, Jesus Christ is born today.
Man and beast before Him bow for He is in the manger now.
Christ is born today, Christ is born today.
Christ is born today, Christ is born today.

Go tell it on the mountain, go tell it on the mountain
Go tell is on the mountain, go tell it on the mountain.

Go tell it on the mountain, over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain that Jesus Christ is born

You’ve got to go tell it on the mountain, over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain that Jesus Christ is born

He rules the world with truth and grace
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness
And wonders of His love
And wonders of His love
And wonder, wonders of His love

Joy to the world, good Christian men rejoice
Joy to the world, with heart and soul and voice
Joy to the world, the Lord has come!
