Song Description

This song creates the feeling of Christmas with its emphasis on the traditional atmosphere of the festival, the importance of children and the holiness of the occasion.

Story Behind the Song

It started off as an idea for a love song with an unusual melody and chord structure, But it was coming up to Christmas, and I just felt inspired to change the lyrics completely and write ... a modern Christmas song!

Lyrics

Take a crispy morning in the Wintertime,
Sleighbells chime and children listen.

Then a sprig of holly and some mistletoe,
Fireglow and snow that glistens.

Folks will gather round to hear the choir tonight,
Gentle voices sing the sacred story.
Carols fill the air, Whisper if you dare...
Children everywhere will see the glory.

It's Christmas time again, this year the bells will chime again
'Cos every now and then it's Christmas time, my friends.
It's Christmas time again, so come and say Amen to Joy this Christmas time!

Take a burning lantern, light the neighbourhood -
Something good is all around us.

See a lonely child and take his tears away
On this day when Love surrounds us.

Warm your hands and hearts before the precious night,
Cheer yourself with sentimental feeling.
Sky of deepest blue, bring Salvation through -
Christ is born and Heaven's bells are pealing.

It's Christmas time again, this year the bells will chime again
'Cos every now and then it's Christmas time, my friends.
It's Christmas time again, so come and say Amen to Joy this Christmas time!
