DON'T TAKE CHRIST OUT OF CHRISTMAS

LET US LIGHT UP THE CHRISTMAS TREE
AS WE GATHER ALL AROUND
TO REMEMBER WHAT THIS DAY REALLY MEANS

IT WAS NAMED FOR HIS BIRTHDAY
GOD'S GIFT TO A WORLD IN NEED
A BRIGHT LIGHT THAT WOULD SHOW US THE WAY

THREE WISEMEN CAME TO SEE HIM AS DID SHEPARDS FROM THEIR FIELDS
CHRIST WAS BORN ON CHRISTMAS DAY

THROUGH OUT 2000 PLUS YEARS
BELIEVERS SHARE THIS TIME
TO ADORE HIM AND REMEMBER HIS NAME

DON'T TAKE CHRIST OUT OF CHRISTMAS
SAY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND NOT HAPPY HOLIDAYS
KEEP CHRIST IN CHRISTMAS TREE
WITHOUT CHRISTMAS WHAT WOULD IT BE
WHY NOTHING BUT JUST ANOTHER TREE

LET US CELEBRATE THIS HOLY DAY
FOR THE GIFT TO YOU AND ME
THAT ONE DAY WE COULD LIVE IN HARMONY

AND WHEN THE NON BELIEVERS COMPLAIN
THAT IT'S NOT FAIR
JUST SMILE FOR SOMEDAY THEY WILL SEE

SO HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS
MAY PEACE COME TO MANY LANDS
WHERE BROTHERS AND SISTERS
SHARE IT HAND IN HAND

MAY YOUR BLESSINGS BE PLENTY
AND YOUR TROUBLES BE FEW
MERRY CHRISTMAS MY FRIENDS
MAY GOD BLESS YOU
MERRY CHRISTMAS MY FRIENDS MAY GOD BLESS YOU
