Christmas Blessed - 4:48

Christmas in 3/4 Time - 3:49

Blue Heart for Christmas - 3:19

Still it's Christmas Time - 3:38

I awake Christmas blessed…

 

All of those mornings, all of those years

All of the laughter, all appear

in my dreams, the night before Christmas

and I awake Christmas blessed

 

No matter the reason, through the years

I feel the season as friends draw near

And just in time, the night before Christmas

and I awake Christmas blessed

 

It's not just nostalgia, it's too real to be

It's the light of my childhood returning to me

Cycle to cycle, tree after tree

 

There's still a child there in my dreams

Still full of laughter, though it seems

he's hard to awaken the morning of Christmas

perhaps that child wishes

that I awake Christmas blessed

 

Secrets and presents, and friends come to play

Phone calls from relatives, far away

I recall, the night before Christmas

and I awake Christmas blessed

 

It’s there in my memory, the scent of the tree

and Mom and Dad’s coffee, come back to me

Safe and familiar, the night before Christmas

and I awake Christmas blessed

 

And it's not just nostalgia, it's too real to be

It's the light of our childhood returning to each

Cycle to cycle, gift upon gift upon gift upon gift…

 

There's still a child there in your dreams

Still full of laughter, though it seems

he's hard to awaken the morning of Christmas

perhaps that child wishes

we all awake Christmas blessed

 

Perhaps that child wishes

The world will awaken Christmas blessed

Quickly approaches the end of the year, outside the snowflakes are falling

Christmas is coming, the shopping is done, the tree and the gifts are enthralling

Santa will magically visit the tree, bringing the hopes of the season

Suspended in time, he waits till the children are snug as a bug and sleeping

 

Christmas has… Christmas has… Christmas has… Christmas has come

 

Family arrives with gifts of their own, excited with holiday cheer

From house to house the carolers sing of sleigh bells they’re hoping to hear

On water like glass, frozen in time, people are skating in together

The warmth of their joy cuts through the cold, easing the harsh winter weather

 

Christmas has… Christmas has… Christmas has…

Christmas has come to delight us, to thrill and invite us

to learn of the love that it brings to enlighten us

Reconnecting, together reflecting, to brighten a hopeful new year

Christmas has come

 

The thrill of the season is filling the air, the holiday meal comes together

Aromas redolent of feasts through the years, the memories linger forever

Deep in the night, presents appear in the light from the tree as it dances

Clothes for the teens, toys for the kids, little gifts hid in the branches 

 

Christmas is… Mistletoe, holly

Christmas is… chestnuts and chimneys

Christmas is… Jesus and Mary

Christmas is… toys and trains

Christmas is… Eggnog and fruitcake

Christmas is… nativity scenes

Christmas is… magi and ornaments… Christmas is…

Christmas cookies and candy canes

Christmas has… Christmas has… Christmas has… Christmas has come

 

Then all are asleep, warm and content, exhausted and quietly dreaming

‘Neath wreaths woven from kindness and love, slumbering wishes are fleeting

At early O’clock, alarms all go off, the chaos begins of unwrapping

The children so soon worn out from the fun, satisfied, happy and napping

 

Christmas has… Christmas has… Christmas has…

Christmas has come to delight us, to thrill and invite us

to learn of the love that it brings to enlighten us

Reconnecting, together reflecting, to brighten a hopeful new year

Christmas has come

Lookin’ for love this Christmas

Hopin’ for love this New Year

No presents coming and no presents going

No Ho Ho Ho, and no reindeer

 

Lookin’ for love this Christmas

Stuffed in the stocking or under the tree

If I’m real good and I don’t shake my package

and leave some cookies by the chimney

 

I’ve got blue Christmas lights in my window

Blue, shiny blue tinsel and even blue tears

I’m sendin’ out blue Christmas cards…

and listenin’ to Ol’ Muddy Waters

‘Cause you gave me a blue heart… for Christmas this year

 

The leaves are fallin’ from the mistletoe

I burned the fruitcake and spilled the eggnog

If Hershey don’t quit makin’ kisses

My youth and my health will be just reminiscences

You… you gave me a blue heart… for Christmas this year

 

Lookin’ for love this Christmas

Makin’ my list so carefully

Santa please read it and bring me my baby

So I won’t be lonely this New Year’s Eve

 

I’ve got blue Christmas lights in my window

Blue, shiny blue tinsel and even blue tears

I’m sendin’ out blue Christmas cards…

and listenin’ to Ol’ Muddy Waters

‘Cause you gave me a blue heart… for Christmas this year

The floor is littered with ribbons and foil

Santa Claus has come and gone and left the children spoiled

The kids, they aren’t so young

The house not so filled with noise

But still it’s Christmas time for mamma’s girls and boys

The rooms are empty now but still echo with joy

And nothing’s really changed except the prices of the toys

The kids are grownups now and living for themselves

But still it’s Christmas time for mamma’s little elves

The turkey’s cooking and the family is here

The time they spend together has changed but not the atmosphere

And soon they’ll all be leaving for the places they call home

But still it’s Christmas time and mamma’s with her own

For now it’s Christmas time and nobody’s alone

I hope everyone is Christmas blessed, and has a prosperous and joyous New Year!
