Fall gives way to winter, and the ice and bitter cold
The youthful year that we once knew now grows so pale and old
The snow mounts in mighty drifts, and blocks the streets and ways
The sun is seen but few and seldom in these dark and dreary days

But hold, in truth all is not lost. Indeed, we have a reason
to celebrate among the chill of this dim and frosty season
For there is a day, the greatest day, one single moment for cheer
One pure, pure day that lets us know that God is with us here

It is the holiday called Christmas. It is known throughout the land
It is the day when troubles fade, and hand is held in hand
It is a time for giving. It is a time for love
A celebration of the birth of the One who sits above

A happy time. A joyous time. A time for smiles and fun
A time to step back and give thanks for all the good that’s done
Don’t fret, and don’t be sad, despite all your hardships or pain
Keep the faith in your heart and soul, and blissful thoughts you’ll gain

Know well that you are loved. Know well that someone cares
Look for God in kindly eyes, for through these He thus stares
Don’t get down, don’t give up. Don’t let the darkness win
Open yourself up to God, and let His greatness in

And suddenly, you’ll feel no cold. You’ll feel no snow or storm
The rays of heaven will shine on you and keep you always warm
So celebrate with laughter, this time so good and true
Celebrate when God was born, on Earth, and yes, in you
