FALLING IN LOVE WITH CHRISTMAS (A Christmas Song)

Kids Decorating a Christmas Tree
A little babe was born in silence
To a sad world in desperate times
But oh! how the heavens proclaimed Him
And love, it rung out sweetly its chimes

We do not know the rightful moment
Baby Jesus took His first pure breath
But we know that it surely happened
In that divine lit stable in Beth –lehem

Bethlehem, oh! Bethlehem, chosen
For a sweet time as this, we are told
Through God’s word of peace, peace, love and joy
Heaven’s gift in swaddling clothes did hold

Chorus
Falling in love with Christmas
Coming but once through the year
Never forget the reason
Your heart is filled with such cheer

And we lift voices with joyful sound
Gather round celebration’s table
May many feel His love draw closer
Love begun before earthly stable

Let the Christmas tree remind us of
The tree that held ages’ answered prayer
Let the Christmas presents remind us
Of Eternal Present gifted fair

Let festive decorations remind
Us of the glory which lit the skies
And the rich Christmas meal that fills us
Everlasting Bread Who makes us wise

Chorus
Falling in love with Christmas
Coming but once through the year
Never forget the reason
Your heart is filled with such cheer
