034. Christ is christmas

Christ is Christmas, not a shining tree
with tinsel and bells and holy,
or even loved ones and friends to see.
Christ is Christmas, not the cheery glow
of chestnuts upon the fire,
or sleighbells in the snow.

O how we've lost its meaning,
letting our love grow dim.
O how it grieves the Saviour,
leaving no room for Him.

Christ is Christmas, think of His great love
in coming to earth a stranger,
leaving His home above.
Christ is Christmas, not a cheery glow
of chestnuts upon the fire
or sleighbells in the snow.

O what a woundrous story,
story that lives a new,
Jesus, the Christ of Christmas
gave us salvation true.
Christ is Christmass,
think of His great love
in coming to earth a stranger,
leaving His home above.
