The Story Behind the Song, Wonderful
The story behind the song, Wonderful, comes from the book of Isaiah. As Madison Cain Johnson says, “Before anything else, he was called a Wonderful Counselor. And that is the tenderness of Christmas all wrapped up. Before He was Mighty, he helps us!” Steven Curtis Chapman performs with them in the video. Chapman explains that the first Christmas after the tragic loss of his daughter, Maria, was when he first really connected with the idea of a Wonderful Counselor because he was desperate for one. Taylor Cain Matz expresses their hope that you will experience Jesus as a Wonderful Counselor.
We hope you will enjoy the song and the music video by CAIN – Wonderful [feat. Steven Curtis Chapman].

About the song, Mac said, “A fun fact is I was born on Christmas day, so I have always loved Christmas, the month of December, and that God sent his Son to earth for all people. The story of Jesus is not only told on Christmas morning but it is also told from the beginning of time. From Genesis to Revelation, we read about how God’s spirit spoke through the prophets and his word to set up the greatest story ever told.”
CHORUS Jesus Christ is born Jesus Christ is born Let all of Heaven and earth rejoice On this Christmas morn Jesus Christ is born The Savior of the world Let all of Heaven and earth rejoice Jesus Christ is born The Spirit told the prophets And the prophets spoke the word That word was spread throughout the land Prepare the way of the Lord And the angels told the shepherds And the shepherds bowed to pray Then the angels and the shepherds and the wise men sang This song on Christmas Day CHORUS The disciples shared their stories And the Bible brought the truth That preacher spoke those words to me And I’m singing them to you…oh Jesus Christ is born Jesus Christ is born Let all of heaven and earth rejoice On this Christmas morn Cause He died upon the cross And He conquered death and sin He rose up from that grave And He’s coming back again CHORUS
Luke 2:1-20 – Prophecies were fulfilled, the Angels praised God and the Shepherds rejoiced!
Acts 2 – His disciples tell the story of God’s salvation
A remix by Jordan Feliz
“Have you ever thought that the world has kinda lost its way?
Crazy as it seems, I know it’s gonna be okay.”

The current remix, released by Centricity Music, features GRAMMY Award-winning, Mandisa, and Motown Gospel/Capitol CMG artist, Jonathan Traylor.

Jesus Is Coming Back
“And when the world gets complicated,
We’re gonna keep on celebrating.
‘Cause we know (Yeah, we know)
Jesus is coming back.”
Since we KNOW Jesus is coming back, we should keep celebrating His soon return! Let’s daily check our attitudes and not let fear overcome us. We need to get ready and tell others so that they can be ready too!
In 1 Thessalonians 5 we are told that ‘He will come like a thief in the night’, but we shouldn’t be surprised. Verses 16-18 encourage us to ‘rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.’ Let’s celebrate!
We know that He’s coming back (We know, we know) We know that He’s coming back (We know, we know) We know that He’s coming back (We know, we know) We know that He’s coming back (Ooh!) Have you ever thought that the world has kinda lost its way? (Mmm) Crazy as it seems, yeah, I know it's gonna be okay (Ooh, yeah) It doesn't scare me, it's temporary There's something better, we got forever And it won't be long 'cause we know our help is on the way (The way) CHORUS So keep your head up Jesus is coming back Jesus is coming back No, don't you give up Jesus is coming back Jesus is coming back And when the world gets complicated We're gonna keep on celebrating 'Cause we know (Yeah, we know) Jesus is coming back Jesus is coming back We gotta stay awake 'cause nobody knows the day or time (No) The trumpet's gonna blow and the skies are gonna open wide (Ooh, yeah) He's coming for us just like He told us It's been a long wait but there's a new day And we're gonna sing Hallelujah when the King arrives Oh, you know you gotta CHORUS Woo-ooh, yeah Are you ready? Are you ready? People get ready, people get ready Are you ready? Are you ready? People get ready, people get ready Are you ready? Are you ready? People get ready Yeah, let's get ready CHORUS Are you ready now? Are you ready now? (Yeah) People get ready (Woo!) We just wanna celebrate it (Hey! Hey!) Jesus is coming back Jesus is coming back So keep your head up Jesus is coming back Jesus is coming back
