A CHRISTMAS MELODY (Song Lyrics)

christmas background sparkling decorated fir tree sketch

Have you ever stopped to wonder
This divine love, so pure in heart
Heaven-sent above asunder
Flowing from life, so torn apart

Pouring forth sweet adoration
Angels announce this mystery
A birth, Father’s jubilation
Knowing man could now be made free

Found in lowly manger’s holding
Bringing His way and truth and life
Causing hearts to break forth singing
Delivering from sin and strife

Oh what joy, the birth of Christ is
To all becoming sons of God
We lift praise to all that is His
All brought forth out of Jesse’s rod

Emmanuel, everlasting
From eternity past, You came
Oh! Fill us to overflowing
We’ll overcome, You overcame

Fill us with Holy Spirit love
Joy and peace and longsuffering
Gentleness, goodness, wings of dove
Faith, meekness, self-control leading

So think upon this priceless gift
This season of entwining hearts
May healing balm bind every rift
Salvation come, as He imparts

CHRISTMAS IN YOUR HEART (Song Lyrics)

three glittering christmas tree vector

Is there joy deep within
Is there reason to sing
When those Christmas hymns touch
Your life’s sweet memories

Let the music begin
Let the carollers bring
All the warmth and love’s touch
Of Christmas jubilees

O Christmas in your heart, in your heart
Melts the coldness, and sheds a soft glow
Upon the sadness of the past year
Upon the gladness, all of the cheer
Brings the long drawn out days to a close
Kisses the season, with love to show
Kisses the season, sets hearts aglow

May the blessings find you
Dispel all shades of blue
That heart, if out of touch
Renewed by One who sees

Find yourself surrounded
Find yourself surely loved
Let the Saviour’s heart touch
And bring you to your knees

O Christmas in your heart, in your heart
Melts the coldness, and sheds a soft glow
Upon the sadness of the past year
Upon the gladness, all of the cheer
Brings the long drawn out days to a close
Kisses the season, with love to show
Kisses the season, sets hearts aglow
