"YOU ONLY LEFT HEAVEN FOR LOVE"

Thinking about the wonderful day You were born,
And how we need to remember what Christmas is for.
With buying and shopping, giving and getting new things,
We tend to forget the birth of the King of kings.

You told us it's better to give than it is to receive,
And You gave us Yourself on that wonderful first Christmas Eve.
But we're often so busy with parties and holiday scenes,
And we seem to forget what Your birth on Christmas Day means.

Chorus 1
Oh, but I can imagine that silent night.
Creation held its breath to see the wonderful sight,
And men heard angels sing,
"Glory and praise to the newborn King!"
Oh, help me to see, You only left Heaven for love that night.

To our world You came, a precious gift from above,
And You gave us Your life so we could know Your Father's love.
When I think what it cost You, there's so little I can do,
But I'll show You my love by giving my heart to You.

Chorus 2
Now I can imagine that silent night.
Creation held its breath to see the wonderful sight,
And men heard angels sing,
"Glory and praise to the newborn King!"
Oh, now I can see, You only left Heaven for love that night.

[Repeat Chorus 2]

Oh, now I can see, You only left Heaven for love that night.
