When I say merry Christmas to a friend
It is more than a friendly wish I send
I'm remembering that holy night
When Jesus' birth
brought peace and light.
And how He gave
the gift of love to men
Iím wishing you the joy
the world knew then
When 1 say merry Christmas in a song
Will you join heart to heart
and sing along? Like the angel choirs that filled the skies
To herald Christ that sacred night,
We too in joyous chorus must respond
Sing praise to Him
for still He leads us on
When I say merry Christmas
from my heart
Do you sense just how much
that phrase means?
If those words could only lift you up
And wrap you in the Savior's love
And keep you ever following His star.
I'd have a merry Christmas in my heart
