WHEN CHRISTMAS COMES AROUND - a seasonal carol/song

Lift up your voice - let all rejoice

And make a joyful sound

Cast off the care Mankind must bear -

When Christmas comes around

 

Stand up and sing  - let love take wing

Our praises shall resound

The Word we share is everywhere

When Christmas comes around

 

Look to your heart - that's where to start -

Where Life itself begins

And you shall know that faith will show

Forgiveness for your sins

 

A time of cheer with loved ones near

To banish grief and fears

With peals of laughter ever after

Echoing down the years

 

Lift up your eyes to seek the skies

With stars forever crowned

That we might see eternity

When Christmas comes around

 

Look to His truth - in age and youth

Salvation shall be found

As one they stand before His hand

When Christmas comes around.

Compliments of the Season to you, Po. Thanks for commenting so
positively. This is one I wrote a while ago but I feel the content to
be relevant every year - and whilst not religious in the man-made
sense, I do believe there is more to this existence than we can know
- and on that basis I am happy to use the birth of Christ and its
story to pursue that belief. Hope springs eternal.

What tune do we sing to sing your praises?

Let all WOL resound and join me in singing them to you.
