CHRISTMAS JOY IS HERE TO STAY (A Song of Promise)

Chorus
Just because the day is over
Just because the tree is down
Don’t let the sparkling lights grow dimmer
’Cause Christmas joy is here to stay

Why is it only one day a year
That Christ is given a place in your home
A place round your fireplace
As you smile at the presents
But don’t feel His presence the rest of the year?

Chorus
Just because the day is over
Just because the tree is down
Don’t let the sparkling lights grow dimmer
’Cause Christmas joy is here to stay

Why is it only one day a year
That Christ is given a place in your home
A small place in your heart
As you sing of His sweet Name
A sweet Name not heard through the rest of the year?

Chorus
Just because the day is over
Just because the tree is down
Don’t let the sparkling lights grow dimmer
’Cause Christmas joy is here to stay

Why is it only one day a year
That Christ is given a place in your home
A place round your table
As you feed on too many things
And avoid heavenly Bread the rest of the year?

Bridge
Oh! He will always be here
The Tree of Life He offers you
The Light of heaven will ever shine forth
The Joy of heaven fills each day anew

Chorus
Just because the day is over
Just because the tree is down
Don’t let the sparkling lights grow dimmer
’Cause Christmas joy is here to stay
