"CHRISTMAS MEANS LOVE"

Verse 1
Love is the magic found in Christmas.
It was love that made the Christmas star shine bright.
Love spurred the Wisemen ever onwards;
Guiding them to the manger scene that night.-
Love is Christmas’ sweet secret.
It was love that caused the angel host to sing.

Chorus 1
Christmas means love for you and me,
A celebration of the birth of life and liberty.
When Jesus came down to be with us
He lived for nothing else but love,
And we will live forever now
Because His love was strong enough
To pay the price to set us free.
That's why Christmas means love
For you and me.

Verse 2
Love gave a mother’s heart to Mary.
And in Joseph’s tender soul,
A father’s love for Jesus glowed.
Love is the miracle of Christmas night,
Love is why the glorious story can be told.
Oh, oh, love filled the shepherds’ hearts with wonder.
Love was the only gift they had to offer to their King.

Chorus 2
Christmas means love for you and me,
A celebration of the birth of life and liberty.
When Jesus came down to be with us
He lived for nothing else but love,
And we will live forever now [forever now]
Because His love was strong enough
To pay the price to set us free.
That’s why Christmas means love.

Bridge
Now you and I can understand the meaning
Of the Christmas star’s bright gleaming;
It’s just a prayer away.
Love and joy and life that’s everlasting
Are right there for the asking.
This Christmas love can come to stay
With you today!

Chorus 3
[Christmas means love for you and me.]
Come celebrate and sing with me this prayer of liberty:
Jesus, please come into my heart.
From now on I believe in You.
I want Your presence in my life
Because Your love was strong enough
To pay the price to set me free.
Give me Your Christmas love eternally.
