Christmas is the time to tell the story

© Mae (Betty) Overstreet 2003/2020

CHORUS:

Christmas is the time to tell the story              

how Christ came down from Heaven above 

Christmas is the time for rejoicing                   

giving thanks for  God’s everlasting  love

                  

God knew that something must happen                  

He was saddened by a world filled with sin   

 He sent down His beloved son, Jesus          

To be born beneath the Star in Bethlehem    

The wise men saw the star in the heaven     

Shining brightly they followed the light           

shepherds traveled far from their home land 

Arriving at the stable that night                        

 

As they gazed at the babe in the manger      

The Christ child who would  save us from sin         

They heard the heavenly angels singing                                             

“Glory to God, and Peace toward men                              

Baby Jesus was born in the manger              

he came to earth, to share God’s love           

Now we celebrate that day in Bethlehem       

Singing praises to our savior above               

 

CHORUS:

Yes, Christmas is the time to tell the story

 how Christ came down from Heaven above

Christmas is the time for rejoicing

giving thanks for  God’s everlasting  love

 

Yes, Christmas is the time to tell the story

 how Christ came down from Heaven above

Christmas is the time for rejoicing

giving thanks for  God’s everlasting  love

 

thank you Father for your everlasting love

Christmas is the time to tell the story
