Candlelit Heart

Poem by Mary E. Linton

Somewhere across the winter world tonight
You will be hearing chimes that fill the air;
Christmas extends its all-enfolding light
Across the distance…something we can share.

You will be singing, just the same as I,
These familiar songs we know so well,
And you will see these same stars in your sky
And wish upon that brightest one that fell.

I shall remember you and trim my tree,
One shining star upon the topmost bough;
I will hang wreaths of faith that all may see —
Tonight I glimpse beyond the hear and now.

And all the time that we must be apart
I keep a candle in my heart.





Christmas Lights

By Marie Irish

Bright Christmas stars shine on high,
Golden stars in the wint’ry sky;
Christmas candles in windows bright
Sends greeting into the night;

While in our hearts the Christmas flame,
Glows with a love like his who came,
The infant Christ of lowly birth,
To bring good will and peace to earth.



Christmas Giving

By Iris W. Bray

Christmas is for giving
And for showing that we care,
For honoring the Christ Child
With the loving gifts we share.

The wise men gave of riches;
The shepherds, faith and love.
Each gift, in its own measure,
Was smiled on from above.

Let every gift be treasured;
Not always size or price
Determines the extent of love
And willing sacrifice

Handsome gifts with festive trim
Bring smiles of sweet content,
But modest gifts of humble means
are ofttimes heaven sent.

Whether it be large or small,
Each gift will share in part
The message of true Christmas joy
If given from the heart!



Merry Christmas To My Love

By: Nicholas Gordon

Merry Christmas to my love!
Enjoy the holiday!
Revel where the angels move,
Rejoice in what they say!
Years burn life down to a stub;
Christmas comes and goes.
Happiness lies at the nub,
Refuse of one’s woes.
Inside the husk there is the seed,
Shivering with glory;
The midnight cold, the dire need,
Mere setting for the story.
All the labor, loss, and pain
Sings of beauty born again.



Manger Song

Written by Frederick M. Lynk

Young Mary the Mother
Gazed fondly at Him,
And softly fingered
The manger’s rim.

St. Joseph sat musing
On a bundle of hay,
The shepherds played sweetly
A bagpipe lay.

The angels stood smiling
In heaven’s joy
And humbly adoring
The infant Christ-boy.

The ox and the donkey
Forgot the fresh straw
And knelt down in wonder
At what they saw.

The walls were shining
Like molten gold,
The winds sang gaily
Around the fold.

And gleaming silver
Strewed every star,
And sang a star greeting
From heaven afar.



"My Lonely Christmas"
(Army Wives lonely Christmas)

by Bradley A Peraino

As I lay down to sleep, this eve of Christmas morn, '
I slide between the cotton sheets so comfortable and warm.

A tinge of guilt comes over me followed by a saddened tear.
I say another lonely prayer that only God can hear.

I turn the bedside light off and quickly settle in,
but it will be a few more hours before my night comes to an end.

I lie here all but motionless, eyes wider than the sky.
I try to think of happy thoughts, but I still break down and cry.

I punch my flattened pillow and lie flat on my back.
I'm thinking of my soldier who's bravely serving in Iraq.

I finally stop my crying and a calm sets in my heart.
For, I know this year will quickly pass, then we'll no longer be apart.

My eyes are feeling heavy now, so I send God one last prayer.
"God, please protect my soldier while fighting over there!"


Our Christmas Wish For You

author unknown

Our Christmas wish for you
Is not a simple one
For we wish you hope and joy and peace
Days filled with warmth and sun

May you count your blessings, one by one
And when totaled by the lot
May you find all you've been given
To be more than what you sought

May God be your strength and light
May your spirit never grow old
May all your clouds have silver linings
And your rainbows pots of gold

We wish this all and so much more
May all your dreams come true
May you have a Merry Christmas
And a happy New Year, too …



A MARINE CHRISTMAS POEM

by
KRISTEN M SACCARDI

The Embers Glowed Softly
And In Their Dim Light
I Gazed Around The Room
And I Cherished The Sight

My dog was asleep
Her head on my chest
My sister beside me
Angelic In Rest

Outside the snow fell
A Blanket Of White
Transforming the yard
To a winter delight

The sparkling lights
In the tree I believe
Completed the magic
That Christmas eve

My Eyelids were heavy
My breathing was deep
Secure was surrounded
By love I would sleep

In perfect contentment
Or so it would seem
So I slumbered perhaps
I started to dream

The sound wasn’t loud
And It wasn’t too near
But I opened my eyes
When it tickled my ear

Perhaps just a cough
I didn’t quite know
Then The sure sound of footsteps
Outside in the snow

My Soul gave a tremble
I struggled to hear
I crept to the door
To see who was near

Standing out in the cold
In the dark of the night
Alone stood a figure
His face weary and tight

A Soldier I puzzled
Some 20 year old
Perhaps a Marine
Huddled here in the cold

Alone in the dark
He looked up and smiled
Standing watch over me
My mom and a child

What are you doing
I asked without fear
Come this moment
Its Freezing out there

Put down your pack
Brush the snow from your sleeve
You should be at home
On a cold Christmas eve

For barely a moment
I saw his eye shift
Away from the cold
And the snow blew in drifts

To the window that danced
With a warm fires light
The he looked and he said
Its really alright

I’m out here by choice
I’m here every night
Its my duty stand
At the front of the line

No one had to ask
Or beg to emplore me
I’m proud to stand here
Like My Fathers Beofre me

My dad’s dad stood his watch
In the jungle of Nam
And Now its my turn
So Here I am

I’ve not seen my own family
In more than awhile
But My family sends me pictures
And they sure do make me smile

Then he bent over
And carefully pulled from his bag
The red white and blue
An American Flag

I can live through the cold
And being alone
Away form my family
My house and my home

I can stand at my post
Through the rain and the sleet
I can sleep in a fox hole
With a little to eat

I can carry the weight
Of killing another
Or lay down my life
With my family and others

Who stand at the front
Against any and all
The ensure for all time
This flag will not fall

So go back Inside “he siad”
Harbor or fright
Your family is waiting
And I’ll be alright

But isn’t there something
I can do at the least
Give you money I asked
Or prepare you a feast

Its seems all to little
For all that you wonder
For being away
From your family and brother

Then his eye welled a tear
That held no regret
Just tell us you love us
And never forget

To fight for out rights
While were doing wrong
To stand your own watch
No matter how long

For wen we come home
Either standing or dead
To know you remember
We fought and bled

Is payment Enough
And with that we will trust
That we matterd to you
As you mattered to us


Baby's First Christmas

by Mary Lewis

It's Baby's first Christmas,
what a beautiful sight!
As he gurgles out loud in spontaneous delight.
As he gazes at the Tree, with it's baubles and trim
I know only He can hear the Angels sweet hymns.
Holy! Holy! Holy!
As He edges ever nearer to the base of the Tree,
Picks up tiny toys and shakes them with glee
Mommy and Daddy have to laugh outright.
It's Baby's first Christmas- what a wonderful Night!
Holy! Holy! holy!



Christmas Excitement

by James J. Metcalfe

Ornaments and tinsel,
Glowing lights on shapely trees,
Indoor decorations
And wreaths and trim to please,

Gatherings of neighbors
And of relatives and friends,
Special preparations
While warmth of song transcends.

Christmas punch and fruitcakes,
Bright wrappings, gifts and toys,
Excitement and elation
In hearts of girls and boys.

We're ready for a birthday,
And our homes are at their best.
Dear God, help us prepare our hearts
For You, the honored Guest.

 

Christmas Is A Child

by Joel Bjorling


Christmas is not found
In department stores or malls,
Nor in flashy gifts,
Either large or small;
The secret of Christmas
Need not flabbergast the mind,
Nor confuse the critics
For all time--
The secret of Christmas is a child.

It is not simply a child
Who plays on the living room floor
Or who waits for Santa
By the door,
But it is a child
Lying in a manger's bed,
Who, in simplicity,
Eats his bread--
The secret of Christmas is a child.

A child is a new hope, a new chance,
A new life,
A sure relief
From relentless strife;
A child sees each day
As unfettered by the past,
Embracing a future
That is bound to last--
The secret of Christmas is a child.

So, when you think of Christmas,
Remember the son,
Who, though born years ago,
Still offers light to everyone;
The meaning of Christmas is not difficult,
Nor impossible to see,
Its message is timeless,
Resounding throughout eternity--
The secret of Christmas is a child.


Christmas Memories

by Nancy Hughes

Snowflakes falling,
Friends come calling,
Decorations in green and red.
Smells enticing,
Bowls of icing,
For cookies and gingerbread.

Candles glowing,
Goodwill flowing,
The Christmas story is read.
Yule log burning,
Wishful yearning
As children dream in bed.

Stockings hung
Carols sung,
Hope and Peace, the common thread.
Families near,
Memories dear,
As Christmas blessings are spread.



My Surprise Gift

by Pattie Castillo


It didn't come trimmed with ribbon or topped off with a bow,
I didn't find it wrapped in pretty paper, under the tree or mistletoe.
It wasn't something we planned to purchase, it didn't cost one cent.
It wasn't something I new I wanted or asked for as a present.
It didn't even realize it was something I would need,
I had long forgotten about Santa, until I saw it and had to believe.
It came on a whim, as we were trimming the tree for the season,
It came just in time, and for all the right reasons.
This picture of us, a daughter and her mom,
Smiling into the camera and having a good time.
It filled me with happiness, joy and glee,
To see you there smiling so sweetly with me.
It made my heart sputter and skip a beat,
To hold you in my arms seems quite a treat.
It seems like the last time was so long ago,
Because, Oh My, how ever so quickly you grow.
It reminded me I need to take time each year,
To capture you smiling with me from ear to ear.



The Last Present Under the Tree

by  Joel Bjorling


There is one last present under the Christmas tree,
I wonder whose it is?
Is it for the little girl with the rocking horse,
Or is it for Grandma or Aunt Liz?
It looks so lonely
Sitting there by itself;
It'd certainly be an awesome addition
On "somebodys" shelf.

The ribbon is gold,
The paper is paisley red;
"Who does it belong to?"
Keeps rattling in my head;
I decided to snatch a peek,
And see whose name is on the card;
It'd only take a second,
It won't be very hard.

When no one was looking,
I reached under the tree,
Carefully handling the package,
"Who knows, it may be for me!"
But when I read the card,
I thought it was extraordinarily odd,
Because the message read,
"Love and blessings," God.


M&M Christmas Story

by Pam Ridenour


As you hold these candies in your hand,
And turn them you will see
The M becomes a W, and E and then a 3
They tell the Christmas story,
It's one I'm sure you know
It took place in a stable a long, long time ago
The E is for the East, where the star shone so bright
The M is for the manger where Baby Jesus slept that night
The 3 is for the wisemen, bearing gifts they say they came
W is for Worship, Hallelujah, Praise His Name
So as you eat these candies or share them with a friend
Remember the meaning of Christmas it's a Love Story that never ends

Three Little Pennies
Doug Stone

There was an old, blind man
Who stood on the corner down town
he was holding a cup
Filled up with nothing
From the christmas shopping crowd
And though I barely came up to the top of his cane
I reached up and gave him
Every cent to my name.
Three little pennies.
Were all that I had
One that I'd found
Two from my dad
Three little pennies not much of a gift
But Dad said "that's plenty, if it's all you can give."
that evening my dad told a wonderful story to me
About a child and the manger.
The wise men who came bearing gifts on the first christmas eve.
There was a part I'm sure he made up
About a stable boy who couldn't give much..
Three little pennies.
Were all that he had
One that he'd found
Two from his dad
Three little pennies not much of a gift
But Dad said "that's plenty if it's all you can give."
next morning was christmas
And I had prayed hard for a bike
But all that I found was the tiniest box
With three shiny pennies inside
and I was so disapointed because I had been good
But times had been bad so I understood.
And daddy said:
"three little pennies.
Were all that you had
But you gave them freely
So I gave them back
Three little pennies not much of a gift
You're bike is outside because you've learned how to give"

Someday at Christmas

Stevie Wonder, Andra Day

Someday at Christmas men won't be boys
Playing with bombs like kids play with toys
One warm December our hearts will see
A world where men are free
Someday at Christmas there'll be no wars
When we have learned what Christmas is for
When we have found what life's really worth
There'll be peace on earth
Someday all our dreams will come to be
Someday in a world where men are free
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmastime
Someday at Christmas we'll see a Man
No hungry children, no empty hand
One happy morning people will share
Our world where people care
Someday at Christmas there'll be no tears
All men are equal and no men have fears
One shinning moment my heart ran away
From our world today
Someday all our dreams will come to be
Someday in a world where men are free
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmastime
Someday at Christmas man will not fail
Hate will be gone love will prevail
Someday a new world that we can start
With hope in every heart
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmastime
Someday at Christmastime


What Christmas Means To Me
Stevie Wonder

Candles burning low
Lots of mistletoe
Lots of snow and ice
Everywhere we go
Choir singing carols
Right outside my door
All these things and more
That's what Christmas means to me my love
Oh, yeah, yeah
I see your smiling face
Like I've never seen before
Even though I love you madly
It seems I love you more
Oh, the little though you give me
Touched my heart for sure
All these things and more, darling
And that's what Christmas means to me my love
I feel like running wild
I feel like just a little child
To bring you 'neath the mistletoe
Kiss you once and then some more
Wish you a Merry Christmas, baby
And such happiness in the coming year
Let's deck the halls with holly
Singing 'Silent night'
Dress the trees with angel hair
Pretty, pretty lights
Go to sleep and wake up
Just before daylight
All these things and more, darling
And that's what Christmas means to me my love
Oh, yeah, that's what Christmas means to me
I talk about desserts underneath the tree
Talkin' 'bout lights of nights and snow
Ooh, everybody sing now
Yeah, that's what it means to me

Do You Hear What I Hear
Written By
Gloria Shayne Baker & Noel Regney

Said the little lamb to the shepherd boy

Do you hear what I hear
Ringing through the night, shepherd boy
Do you hear what I hear
A song, a song, high above the trees
With a voice as big as the sea
With a voice as big as the sea

Said the shepherd boy to the mighty king
Do you know what I know
In your palace warm, mighty king
Do you know what I know
A child, a child, shivers in the cold
Let us bring him silver and gold
Let us bring him silver and gold

Said the king to the people everywhere
Listen to what I say
Pray for peace, people everywhere
Listen to what I say
A child, a child, sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light
He will bring us goodness and light

Mary Did You Know
written by Mark Lowry (lyrics) and Buddy Greene(melody)


Mary, did you know
that your Baby Boy would one day walk on water?
Mary, did you know
that your Baby Boy would save our sons and daughters?
Did you know
that your Baby Boy has come to make you new?
This Child that you delivered will soon deliver you.

Mary, did you know
that your Baby Boy will give sight to a blind man?
Mary, did you know
that your Baby Boy will calm the storm with His hand?
Did you know
that your Baby Boy has walked where angels trod?
When you kiss your little Baby you kissed the face of God?

Mary did you know.. Ooo Ooo Ooo

The blind will see.
The deaf will hear.
The dead will live again.
The lame will leap.
The dumb will speak
The praises of The Lamb.

Mary, did you know
that your Baby Boy is Lord of all creation?
Mary, did you know
that your Baby Boy would one day rule the nations?
Did you know
that your Baby Boy is heaven's perfect Lamb?
The sleeping Child you're holding is the great "I am"

Joy to the World
written by Isaac Watts

Joy to the World, the Lord has 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 Savior reigns!
Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat, repeat, the sounding joy

No more let sins and sorrows grow
Nor thorns infest the ground;
He comes to make His blessings flow
Far as the curse is found
Far as the curse is found
Far as, far as, the curse is found

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 wonders, wonders, of His love
A Soldier's King
written by John Barlow Jarvis and Kenny Horton



No one seemed to notice the man beside the road
He was just a ragged soldier out there in the cold
But he seemed to have a purpose only known to him
As he walked along the streets that night through the town of Bethlahem.

In his head he held a memory of all the wars he'd known
In his hand he clutched a medal for the bravery he'd shown
And the weight of every battle he caried in his heart
But his eyes were clear and searching for a manger in the dark.

Some are born to greatness, some are born to fall
Some are bound to be forgotten like they never lived at all
But we're all born to know Him and stand before His light
Like the soldier who found his king tonight.

He had marched for politicians, served under their command
And he fought for all the causes that he did not understand
But it was something deep inside him now that led him on his way
With a single star to guide him to where the baby lay.

Some are born to greatness, some are born to fall
Some are bound to be forgotten like they never lived at all
But we're all born to know Him and stand before His light
Like the soldier who found his king tonight.

He stood before the Son of God, come to pay our debt
He smiled up at the soldier that the world would soon forget
So he held out his medal and said this for you I bring
There he swore aligiance to the newborn baby King.

Some are born to greatness, some are born to fall
Some are bound to be forgotten like they never lived at all
But we're all born to know Him and stand before His light
Like the soldier who found his king tonight...
Christmas And Love
Written by Lassaye Holmes

I live in a three-room shack it's not much to see
No special lights on my Christmas tree not this Christmas for me
I may not get a Christmas card or shoes for my weary feet
But when Jesus was born on Christmas morn
That was my gift to me

Son of God sent down from above
To cheer the whole wide world
Peace on earth goodwill toward all
And fill their Christmas with love

I have three kids and a wife so true a few ole ties and suit
But when God gives you these things and love you can see
That's enough Christmas for me
Do They Know It’s Christmas?
 written by Bob Geldof and Midge Ure


It's Christmas time
There's no need to be afraid
At Christmas time
We let in light and we banish shade

And in our world of plenty
We can spread a smile of joy
Throw your arms around the world
At Christmas time

But say a prayer
Pray for the other ones
At Christmas time it's hard

But when you're having fun
There's a world outside your window
And it's a world of dread and fear

Where the only water flowing
Is the bitter sting of tears

And the Christmas bells that ring there
Are the clanging chimes of doom

Well tonight thank God it's them
Instead of you

And there won't be snow in Africa this Christmas time
The greatest gift they'll get this year is life(Oooh)
Where nothing ever grows
No rain or rivers flow
Do they know it's Christmas time at all?

Here's to you

Raise a glass for everyone

Here's to them

Underneath that burning sun
Do they know it's Christmas time at all?
 
Feed the world
Feed the world
Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmas time again

Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmas time again

Christmas Is Holy
Written by Ferlin Husky

There's a word we often mention all along life's weary way

                                  
It's the day that's made to praise the one unseen

It's been changed from holy to a holiday
                  
And we seldom stop to think of what it means

But it's holy holy not a holiday holy holy not a holiday

So stop and think dear brother as you celebrate this day
                
Christmas is holy not a holiday

I wonder how my Savior feels to look down on this earth
 
And watch people fuss and fight and grip about their meals
     
How they celebrate His birth

Silver Bells
composed by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans.


(Silver bells, silver bells)

It's Christmas time in the city
Ring-a-ling (ring-a-ling),
Hear them ring (ting-a-ling)
Soon it will be Christmas day.
City sidewalks, busy sidewalks.
Dressed in holiday style
In the air there's a feeling of Christmas
(Children laughing,
People passing,
Meeting smile after smile)
And on every street corner you'll hear
Silver bells, (Silver bells) Silver bells, (silver bells)
It's Christmas time in the city
Ring-a-ling (ring-a-ling),
Hear them ring (hear them ring)
Soon it will be Christmas day.

All Is Well
Written by Wayne Kirkpatrick, Michael W. Smith


All is well all is well
Angels and men rejoice
For tonight darkness fell
Into the dawn of love's light
Sing A-le
Sing Alleluia

All is well all is well
Let there be peace on earth
Christ is come go and tell
That He is in the manger
Sing A-le
Sing Alleluia

All is well all is well
Lift up your voice and sing
Born is now Emmanuel
Born is our Lord and Savior
Sing Alleluia
Sing Alleluia
All is well


Going Home For Christmas

Written by Steven Curtis Chapman


Her house was where the family gathered every Christmas eve;
A feast was set on the table and gifts were placed beneath the tree.
Everything was picture perfect, Grandpa would laugh and say,
That woman spends the whole year getting ready for this day.

One year the leaves began to fall and her health began to fade;
We moved her to a place where they could watch her night and day.
But she kept making plans for Christmas from her little room;
She told everyone, I'll miss you but I'll be leaving soon.

I'm going home for Christmas and I'm going home to stay;
I'm going home for Christmas and nothing's gonna keep me away.
I'll be with the ones I love to celebrate the Savior's birth;
This gift will be worth more to me than anything on earth.
I'm going home, home for Christmas.

All the leaves outside have fallen to be covered by the snow;
The family comes with food and gifts and Grandpa comes alone.
There's a sadness in our silence as the Christmas story's read,
And with tears, Grandpa reminds us of the words that Grandma said.

I'm going home for Christmas and I'm going home to stay;
I'm going home for Christmas and nothing's gonna keep me away.
She'll be face to face with Jesus as we celebrate His birth,
And this gift will be worth more to her than anything on earth,
'Cause she'll be home.

And as we sing 'Joy to the World' I can't help thinking
Of the joy that's in her eyes right now.
And though our hearts still ache, we know that as we celebrate,
She's singing with the herald angels and heaven's glowing on her face.

And now she's home for Christmas and now she's home to stay;
She's home for Christmas, and nothin' could've kept her away.
She'll be face to face with Jesus, as we celebrate His birth,
And this gift will be worth more to her than anything on earth.
She's home, she's home for Christmas.
She is home, she's home for Christmas.



A Christmas To Remember

Written by Amy Grant

Twinkling lights
A chill is in the air
And carols everywhere
Close your eyes, it's almost here
Candles and cards
And favorite movie scenes
The smell of evergreen
As special as it's always been
And I have a dream or two
Maybe they will come true

Setting our hopes on a big snow tonight
We'll wake up to a world of white
It's gonna be a Christmas to remember
Light up the fire, play some Nat King Cole
Always sentimental and don't you know that
It's gonna be a Christmas to remember

I know it's true
Time doesn't stand still
Many things can change
But we know some things never will
The memories we share
The songs we always sing
The mystery of life
The hopefulness this season brings
And I have a dream or two
Maybe they will come true


Joseph's Song

written by Michael Card

How could it be this baby in my arms
Sleeping now, so peacefully
The Son of God, the angel said
How could it be?

Lord, I know He's not my own
Not of my flesh, not of my bone
Still Father let this baby be
The son of my love

Father show me where I fit into this plan of yours
How can a man be father to the Son of God
Lord for all my life I've been a simple carpenter
How can I raise a king, how can I raise a king?

He looks so small, His face and hands so fair
And when He cries the sun just seems to disappear
But when He laughs it shines again
How could it be?

Father show me where I fit into this plan of yours
How can a man be father to the Son of God
Lord for all my life I've been a simple carpenter
How can I raise a king, how can I raise a king?

How could it be this baby in my arms
Sleeping now, so peacefully
The Son of God, the angel said
How could it be? How could it be?



Still Her Little Child


Written by Ray Boltz

When she laid him in a manger
He was still her little child
In a city filled with strangers
He was still her little child

Though the inn was full and the night was cold
She held Him close and smiled
When she laid Him in a manger
He was still her little child

When the angels called Him Savior
He was still her little child
When the wise men gave Him treasures
He was still her little child

When the shepherds bowed before Him
A star shone all the while
When the angels called Him Savior
He was still her little child

When He grew in strength and wisdom
He was still her little child
When He spoke the people listened
He was still her little child

When He healed the lame and dying
They would follow Him for miles
And when he grew, in strength and wisdom
He was still her little child

When the people turned against Him
He was still her little child
When they shouted crucify Him
He was still her little child

And when they nailed Him
To a wooden cross then we were reconciled
When she held His broken body
He was still her little child
He was still her little child



The Christmas Shoes


Written by Newsong

It was almost Christmas time
And there I stood in another line
Trying to buy that last gift or two
Not really in the Christmas mood
And standing right in front of me was a
Little boy waiting anxiously
Pacing around like little boys do
And in his hands he held
A pair of shoes

His clothes were worn and old
He was dirty from head to toe
And when it came his time to pay
I couldn't believe what I heard him say


Sir I wanna buy these shoes
For my mama. please
It's Christmas eve and these shoes are just her size
Could you hurry sir
Daddy says there's not much time
You see,
She's been sick for quite a while And I
know these shoes will make her smile And I
Want her to look beautiful
If mama meets Jesus tonight

They counted penny's for what seemed like years then the
Cashier said, "Son, there's not enough here."
He searched his pockets frantically
Then he turned and he looked at me and he said
"Mama made Christmas good at our house though
Most years she just did without, Tell me sir,
What am I gonna do?
Some how I gotta buy her these Christmas shoes."

So I laid the money down
I just had to help him out
And I'll never forget the look on his face when he said,
"Mama's gonna look so great."


I knew I'd caught a glimpse of heaven's love as he thanked me and ran out
I knew that God had sent me that little boy to remind me what Christmas is all about

I want her to look beautiful if mama meets Jesus tonight



 WINTER SNOW


Written by CHRIS TOMLIN

You could've come like a mighty storm,
With all the strength of a hurricane;
You could've come like a forest fire,
With the power of heaven in Your flame.

But You came like a winter snow -
Quiet, and soft, and slow;
Falling from the sky in the night
To the earth below.

You could've swept in like a tidal wave,
Or in an ocean to ravish our hearts;
You could've come through like a roaring flood
To wipe away the things we've scarred.

Oh, oh, but You came like a winter snow.
You were quiet, You were soft, and slow;
Falling from the sky in the night
To the earth below.

Ooh, no, Your voice wasn't in a bush burning;
No, Your voice wasn't in a rushing wind.
It was still, it was small, it was hidden.

Oh You came like a winter snow -
Quiet, and soft, and slow;
Falling from the sky in the night
To the earth below.

Oh, yeah.
You came falling from the sky in the night
To the earth below.

Tennessee Christmas

Written by Point Of Grace

On God's green earth the ocean swims in brilliant blues
The yellow sun warms me and you
'Til it's chased by an iridescent moon
On God's green earth

On God's green earth the mountains climb with purple haze
Against a sky of stormy days
There are ebony nights and silver days
On God's green earth

We live, we laugh and love and dance
'Cause God makes all things beautiful and perfect in His hands
We rise from the ashes of our past
'Cause we've learned the truth at last
Love is not blind
Every color shines
On God's green earth

On God's green earth...if every color was the same
And every child had just one name
There'd be no beauty for each of us to claim

On God's green earth
We see the scars of yesterday
Of wars that we cannot erase
But we can walk hand in hand in healing grace
We live, we laugh and love and dance
'Cause God makes all things beautiful and perfect in His hands
We rise from the ashes of our past
'Cause we've learned the truth at last
Love is not blind
Every color shines
On God's green earth
