New Christmas Music

Recording by Jed Santa Maria and Guada Perry

mp3 / wma

(Verse 1)
When the colors of night fill your eyes
And joy fills your heart
When you count all your blessings
And find they outnumber the stars
When the sleigh bells and sweet caroling
Take you back through the years
And the children are laughing
While watching a Charlie Brown show
That's how you know

That it's Christmas
Doorbells are ringing
It's Christmas
And children are singing
"It's Christmastime..."
To all
Yes it's Christmas
The whole world is grinning
It's Christmas
New life is beginning
At Christmastime
For all who believe

(Verse 2)
When your fireplace lights up the room
And its scent fills the air
When the calendar's thinned to a leaf
Like the trees everywhere
When the freshness of winter arrives
And your skis meet the snow
When around the feast table
You see that your family's grown
That's how you know

(Repeat Chorus)
That it's Christmas
Doorbells are ringing
It's Christmas
And children are singing
"It's Christmastime..."
To all
Yes it's Christmas
The whole world is grinning
It's Christmas
New life is beginning
At Christmastime
For all who believe

Yes it's Christmas
Yes it's Christmas
Yes it's Christmas
That's how you know
That's how you know

Very lovely. This is one we will also be sharing in our Christmas on air show and sending our listeners to you for purchase and updates

One thing that I noticed is that this song is mentioning the traditional pleasures of Christmas; rather than Jesus. I'm fine with that, because spending time with family is very valuable, but this is a song best heard with other songs that do mention Jesus.
Awesome song indeed
