The Heart Of Christmas

by Susan Nikitenko
(Ohio)

When Christmas bells chime;

When Christmas lights shine;
We know that your birthday is near

When candles are glowing;
And outside it's snowing;
We know that Christmas time's here.

When children are singing;
And ornaments swinging;
We rejoice in your coming to earth.

When we hear the true story;
How you came from glory;
We celebrate your miracle birth.

More than a gift... from heaven;
More than a star aglow;
More than a little baby;
But a Savior we can know.

More than a story of old;
More precious than valuable gold;
More than a day called Christmas;
But riches in Jesus untold.

He was born to give His life away.
He was to die for us one day;
For through His blood our debt was paid.
This! The heart of... Christmas day.

When Carols are sung;
And door wreaths are hung;
We know that it's time to prepare.

When grandma is cooking;
And little ones looking;
We know that it's that time of year.

When the Christmas tree shines;
And we gather to dine;
We know your birthday is here.

More than a gift... from heaven;
More than a star aglow;
More than a little baby;
But a Savior we can know.

More than a story of old;
More precious than valuable gold;
More than a day called Christmas;
But riches in Jesus untold.

He was born to give His life away.
He was to die for us one day;
For through His blood our debt was paid.
This! the heart of Christmas day.
