I walk through the city and see the lights

Red, green and blue, they shine so bright

Each house is lit up in the night

All because of Christmas

 

Merchants are smiling as people pay

For merchandise they bought that day

They smile as people shop and play

All because of Christmas

 

Churches are bustling with holiday fare

Candies and cookies abundant are there

The choirs are singing their songs of cheer

All because of Christmas

 

Families will gather from miles away

Have not been together for many a day

They get along fine and then go their way

All because of Christmas

 

But Christmas is more than shopping and food

More than the lights or family viewed

Christmas is when a baby was born

A long, long time ago

 

He was born in a stable that Holy night

Above shone a star of incredible light

Angels announced His birth that day

A long, long time ago

 

He did not come a good life to live

He came to die and to pardon our sin

Now we are free from guilt and shame

And live forever with Him

 

This Christmas you can enjoy the lights

The food and the family and presents all right

But please don’t forget that babe long ago

Who gave His life just for you
