WHEN CHRISTMAS COMES AROUND

entry picture

 

An annual reminder of the positive message that Christmas brings to us all.  Sing along!

1.

Lift up your voice - let all rejoice

And make a joyful sound

Cast off the care most folk (alt. mankind) must bear

When Christmas comes around

2.

Look to your hearts - that's where love starts

Where Life itself begins...

And you shall know that faith will show

Forgiveness for your sins

3.

Look to His truth - in age and youth

Salvation shall be found

As one they stand before His hand

When Christmas comes around

4.

Stand up and sing - let joy take wing

Our praises shall resound

The word we share is everywhere

When Christmas comes around

5.

A Time of cheer - with loved ones near

To banish grief and tears

With peals of laughter ever after

Echoing down the years

6. Repeat 3

7.

Lift up your eyes to seek the skies

With stars forever crowned.

That we might see Eternity

When Christmas comes around

8.

Be grateful for the years before

The years yet to be

Each bright new dawn - each new life born

His precious World to see

9. Repeat 3

Repeat last two lines to finish.

Success! After some extended experimentation I've managed to
upload a version in "popular" style, together with a seasonal sort of
neighbourhood photo from the not-too-distant past in my neck of the woods here in "The Smoke".
P.S. Adopting a more stately traditional style to the tune has also
been used and seems to work well with the material.

MC.,
A hymn of optimism and hope which we sorely need at this time. I would love to hear it sung.
Thank you for this
Keith

This is charming and has a classic feel to it. I think there might be a maximum size limit for the sound attachments?

Regrettably - WOL seems to resists the uploading of the WMA file of
the song itself.
