I’ve been waiting for you
to arrive all year long
as soon as you
have come and gone
I get a little wiggle
with a tingle and a jiggle
when I hear a certain jingle
ring in my ears.
Like a little kid I dream
of the day you come for me
and I know it will be special
the best day to forget about my fears.
But you take so long to come
you’re here and then you’re done
and I wish with all my heart
we could have a little part (of you)
each minute, each day, each month.
Now I know what my friends are thinking
(I don’t blame them one tiny bit)
Yet, I can’t help the feeling
Jesus would really want this.
To spread the love and joy and giving
we spend Christmastime enjoying
to each and every person
each day throughout the year.
Maybe if we were little kinder
a little gentler, a little lighter
then maybe it wouldn’t be so hard
to have Christmastime in our hearts to share.
thank you for being here
carols of joy to sing, special stories to read
lights twinkling, merry making
Oh, dear Christmas, how I love thee.
