DO YOU BELIEVE IN SANTA CLAUS?

christmas present

Do you believe in Santa Claus
Are you following Rudolph’s red nose
Is brilliant white Christmas snow
Blinding your vision
Dear one, isn’t it the truth you want to know

Ole Santa, the world, will judge you
Good or bad, give gifts accordingly
But you cannot surprise Jesus
Born as a wee babe
Who lay down His life in love’s death to free us

Don’t follow flashing neon signs
That may be oh so, so beautiful
Wrapped in tinsels of ‘Look at me’
They line the wrong path
And lead to a scene you could never foresee

Oh Christmas, yes what a season
So enjoy your fellow company
Let Christ’s joy ever infuse you
Remember others
In their need, and may His peace reflect anew

THROUGH THE DRIVEN SNOW

red candle in snow

Through the driven snow
Joy is bound to show
Bring your hearts aglow
In love with the season

Through the driven snow
Carols sweetly sow
Songs of things we know
Melodies of reason

Through the driven snow
Lights, sweet shadows throw
Tinsel trees, they grow
Jubilant elation

Through the driven snow
Though the sun be low
Stars may twinkle so
All across the nation

Oh! It may be snowing
The sun may be shining
The rains may be pouring
The winds may be howling
Your heart may be breaking
Your dreams may be longing
Wherever you are
Whoever you are
Time flies swiftly by
Christmas Day approaches
The little children waiting
With much anticipation
The presents are wrapping
The food is preparing
The family is coming
Neighbours gather around

And yet
Through the driven snow
Where hearts should be aglow
With the love that did flow
From eternity
Many hearts are crying
Many hearts are hanging low
And in many shattered dreams
Where love should be healing
Brokenness shatters seams

Boundless purity
So white, so pure, so light
Come and bring your cleansing love
Into our cold, cold hearts
Oh! Open our cold, cold, broken hearts
Pour in all that your free love brings
May we receive, and unwrap forever
All that your perfect love brings

Through the driven snow
Joy is bound to show
Bring your hearts aglow
In love with the season

Through the driven snow
Carols sweetly sow
Songs of things we know
Melodies of reason

Through the driven snow
Lights, sweet shadows throw
Tinsel trees, they grow
Jubilant elation

Through the driven snow
Though the sun be low
Stars may twinkle so
Love heals the nation

Through the driven snow

SNOW GLOBE HEART (Song Lyrics)

It’s been a while since I wrote any song lyrics … I hope you enjoy these!

realistic christmas snow globe with christmas gift in it vector

It’s Christmas time around the world
The snow is gently falling
Homes ring out, much jubilation
Young and old in harmony

And as the hour is counting down
Slowly eyes, they find their sleep
Trying hard to stay wide awake
Midst final preparation

Chorus
Oh! See the snow falling upon your life
When all is well, purity covers strife
Little snowflakes, making your heart landscape
A joy to behold, no need to escape

But within the frosty shadows
A heart refuses to shine
Not even in the excitement
Of the night, can warmth, it smile

’Cause a little child, a child’s heart
Grown one, lost in memory
Doesn’t matter how old the years
When hearts are cold, love is gone

Chorus
Oh! See the snow falling upon your life
When all is well, purity covers strife
Little snowflakes, making your heart landscape
A joy to behold, no need to escape

So be embraced by heaven’s Gift
Though found in times of shaking
Surround your life, your loved ones too
Forever all season’s hope

Bridge
May love find all that is lost
May joy receive Her King
May peace line each footstep
Throughout earth, may all hearts sing

Chorus
Oh! See the snow falling upon your life
When all is well, purity covers strife
Little snowflakes, making your heart landscape
A joy to behold, no need to escape
