The Blessings Of Christmas
Jesus is the blessings of Christmas,
He one night come as a Babe,
And He's the Joy, Spirit of Noblesse,
From God the Father He was made.
The blessings of Christmas come to us,
We celebrate our Savior's birth,
Everyday we say ‘Thank You Jesus."
And sing praise hymns to Him on earth.
He's the gentle beauty of Christmas,
Each day we keep Him in our hearts,
Sweetest miracle to behold us,
Jesus' love forever imparts.
He is all the old familiar songs,
And the shiny wrapped packages,
The Greatest Gift of Love thus belongs,
To us throughout all the ages.

Oh, the day that ordained
how salvation would be!
A day of celebration
for you and for me,
The day of Christ's birth.
To signal salvation
for a dying world
as God's plan unfurled
releasing to us joy and mirth
And life for all eternity!

The Beauty Of Christmas
As I gaze out my window
At the fresh fallen snow
Flakes dance in front of me
Fluttering too and fro.
A blanket of white as soft as a cloud
With chips of diamonds it glows
House tops and trees are covered
This beautiful sight just grows.
Tis the yule tide season
The bells ring loud and clear
Lovely trees all aglow
Carolers I can hear.
Children skating on the pond
Excitement in the air
Couples walking arm and arm
Not a worry or a care.
What a wonderful season
May you be happy to
Have a wonderful holiday
And Merry Christmastime to you.
Christmas Without You
The lights are blinking merrily
The tinsel’s on the tree
It sits there in the window
For all the world to see.
The house is filled with holly
And pinecone scents the air
The Christmas cards keep coming
Each one is hung with care.
The gifts are tied with ribbons red
And topped with pretty bows
I’m done with all the details
As far as Christmas goes.
The fire is softly glowing
I think about your touch
But Christmas isn’t Christmas
I miss you oh, so much.
If I could have just anything
My Christmas wish would be
To wake up in the morning
And find you here with me.
I reminisce our Christmas’ past
The joy and love we shared
Moonlit walks and midnight talks
And ways you showed you cared.
Staring at your picture
I long to be set free
Tonight the tears are streaming
As I hold it next to me.
Flakes of snow swirl through the air
I’m braced for stormy weather
I wait for brighter days ahead
When we can be together.
So hold a place in heaven dear
Someday when life is through
I’ll be the Christmas angel
Who shares this day with you.

The Christmas Story
A Child was born to us this day
His eyes are quick and bright
He comes to show us all the way
and lead us to the Light
He comes to bring us Peace and Joy
and Love without an end
The treasures from this little Boy
We share with every friend
So decorate the halls with holly
Bring out food and wine
Let's drink a toast and all be jolly
Here's to yours and mine
We wish you every fortune
Good friends along your way
We wish you love and comfort
On this His special day.
God's gift to you, this Christmas,
Is a present from the heart.
A present that is...
So special, it can't be bought.
So priceless, it can't be sold.
Of such quality, it will never let you down.
So rare, it's one of a kind.
So precious, you'll want to share it.
There's only one gift that's all these.
He'll make your life complete.
All you have to do is receive.

I love Christmas time
Sparkling snow on the ground
With beautiful lights all around
On the trees and bushes
And some even on the ground
Looking for the right gift
For all of the people they love
Something that will make them happy
And will show them how much
That they are really loved
Now you see why I love Christmas
It's a time when people show
Great love for one another
For their families and their friends
I always remember Jesus' birthday
And just how much he cares
For if it was not for his birthday
We would not have Christmas anywhere
So have a Merry Christmas
And a Happy Wonderful New Year
