Christmas in Heaven
‘Tis Christmas in Heaven. What a beautiful sight!
It’s my first one here; Everything is all right.
The crib is adorned With the brilliance of stars,
Wisemen have come From Venus and Mars.
I’ve met all our dear ones who preceded us here;
The reunion was lovely, An event full of cheer.
And tonight, we’ll all gather, In reverence we’ll kneel,
For the Babe in the cradle Up in Heaven is Real.
I think of my family that I left behind
And I pray that your Christmas Is as blessed as mine.
Please shed no more tears, For my soul is at rest,
Just love one another; Live life to its best.
Yes, It’s Christmas In Heaven, So I’ve heard them say,
Yet, Christmas In Heaven Happens every day.
