about

You are invited into relationship with your loving Creator, Gitchi Manitou (The Great Spirit).

"For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth." John 4:24

God's nature and character have been revealed and expressed by Jesous Ahatonhia - in Hebrew: Yehoshua HaMashiach - Jesus the Anointed One. He is our Rescuer and The One Great Chief, He is Lord!

From every tribe, nation, and language He is calling us. Do you hear his call?

This Christmas Hymn is musically inspired by and dedicated to the First nations cultures, who inhabited this land we call now call "America". One day soon we will learn to live in harmony and peace with each other (for we are all brothers) and once again be in harmony with the land out of which the Creator has fashioned man.

We wrote a blog about this song here: reflectworship.com/the-huron-carol-jesous-ahatonhia/ - you can also watch us perform this song live in our living room!

lyrics

Twas in the moon of winter-time When all the birds had fled,
That mighty Gitchi Manitou, Sent angel choirs instead;
Before their light the stars grew dim,
And wandering hunters heard the hymn:
"Jesus your King is born, Jesus is born, In excelsis gloria."

Within a lodge of broken bark, The tender Babe was found,
A ragged robe of rabbit skin, Enwrapp'd His beauty round;
But as the hunter braves drew nigh,
The angel song rang loud and high...
"Jesus your King is born, Jesus is born, In excelsis gloria."

The earliest moon of wintertime, Is not so round and fair
As was the ring of glory, On the helpless infant there.
The chiefs from far before him knelt
With gifts of fox and beaver pelt.
Jesus your King is born, Jesus is born, In excelsis gloria.

O children of the forest free, O sons of Manitou,
The Holy Child of earth and heaven Is born today for you.
Come kneel before the radiant Boy
Who brings you beauty, peace and joy.
"Jesus your King is born, Jesus is born, In excelsis gloria."
