This is Christmas

Do you find it hard to sleep tonight
Resting by the Christmas lights?
Could there be something you forgot?

Beyond the bows and mistletoe
The tree with presents wrapped below
There’s more to this than you had ever thought

Have we lost the reason that we celebrate each year?
What is Christmas?
If there never was a savior wrapped in a manger
What is Christmas without Christ?

Remember how the story goes
God’s gift was wrapped in swaddling clothes
Beneath the star, one great and holy night

The shepherds heard the angels sing
The wise man brought an offering
Peace on earth began in Bethlehem

Have we lost the reason that we celebrate each year?
What is Christmas?
If there never was a savior wrapped in a manger
What is Christmas?

If the angels never sang
Glory to the new born king?
What is Christmas without Christ?

There’d be no Gloria
In excelsis deo
Gloria
In excelsis deo

What is Christmas?
(Joy to the world)
If there never was a savior wrapped in a manger
(Joy to the world)
What is Christmas without Christ?

This is Christmas
It’s all about the savior wrapped in a manger
This is Christmas because of Jesus Christ
