I still remember of CHRISTmas' gone by
We would rise early on CHRISTmas morn
So many, many long years ago,
How I longed for CHRISTmas day
And always wished it could stay.
I remember as a little girl
My dad would go and cut a tree,
My mom would bake and decorate
For all the children to see.
And take our gift from the tree,
We would get candy, grapes or an apple
A book, crayons, or a pencil you see.
Today we remember the gift in our lives
God gave His precious son to the world,
He came to love, to teach and then,
He gave His all to free us from sin.
CHRISTmas had started a long time ago
God gave His son for us to love and know,
A spirit of giving goes back to His birth
Now God's love and peace still fills the earth.
Jesus is better than santa to me
He gave His best so I could be free,
The Spirit of Jesus will always be
He'll live in my heart for all Eternity!
Today we remember God's precious son
He suffered and died, the sinless one,
He came to love, heal and to save,
He waits for us with plenteous grace.
