IT’S COLD OUTSIDE

trees in the snow painting

It’s cold outside
The fire is burning brightly
The robins huddle close
The candles flicker so
My heart, it is awarming
To the season’s gift of love
It’s cold outside
Soft snow falls from above

It’s cold outside
Carollers sing so sweetly
Light fragrance dusts the rose
Now how does that song go?
My countenance is smiling
Friend, to you I give my love
It’s cold outside
Love sprinkled from above

It’s cold outside
This season ends completely
Sparkling tinder, it glows
Melting the cold, I know
I hear the lambs ableating
The Shepherd’s eyes of pure love
It’s cold outside
Bring healing from above

It’s cold outside
Heaven’s stars twinkle lightly
Shine hope on mankind’s woes
White glitters through the snow
My voice joins in the singing
Melodious notes of love
It’s cold outside
Life given from above

IT’S CHRISTMAS MORNING (A Song)

Little Girl with Christmas Tree in the Snow

Dear Papa, dear papa
Wake up, wake up
It’s Christmas morning
And I hear the carollers calling
Singing and praising in the streets all aglow
Dear Papa, please sing and praise with me
And we’ll join in the street harmony
Oh! We’ll join in the street harmony

Dear Mama, dear mama
Wake up, wake up
It’s Christmas morning
And I’ve been awake all night
Wondering if there’s a present for me
Dear Mama, is there a present for me
Under the glistening Christmas tree
Oh! Under the glistening Christmas tree

Dear child, dear child
We’re awake, we’re awake
And yes, it’s Christmas morning
Let’s first bow our heads
Give thanks for everything we have
Dear child, let’s give thanks, then we’ll see
See what’s under that old Christmas tree
Oh! See what’s under that old Christmas tree

DREAMING OF A CHRISTMAS SO LONG, LONG AGO (A Song)

Christmas Angel

Sometimes I go to a place
I have been
And remember the sweet joy
Of yesteryear
That is when
Forgotten melodies arise
Dreaming of a Christmas so long, long ago

Christmas Candle

And log fires a-crackling
And snowflakes a-dancing
And church bells a-ring-ring-ring-ringing
And carollers singing
Little children with eyes brimming
Fill precious dreams of love and giving
Of a Christmas so long, long ago

Christmas Candle

Dreaming of a Christmas so long, long ago
I bring these December memories
Those distant sweet memories
To each and every Christmas Day
‘Cause each year’s sweet memories
Will always become
The Christmas dreams of so long, long ago

Christmas Angel
