    Is It Christmas Yet?

    • Lyrics
    Words and Music by:
    Joel Lindsey

    Verse
    There’s nothing slower than Christmas when you’re just a kid,
    Wishin’ and hopin’, the way we all did
    Peekin’ our eyes out from under the covers
    Pretending we’re sleeping so we’re not discovered!
     
    (Chorus)
    Is it Christmas yet?  Has the snow started falling?
    Has anyone here seen a sleigh in the sky?
    Is it Christmas yet?  Oh the minutes keep crawling
    I’m losing my patience with Old Father Time!
    “Cause we’ve decked the halls just as much as we can
    Baked cookies for Santa, Cause Santa’s the Man!
    I don’t know how much more suspence I can stand
    Is it Christmas Yet (oh yeah) Is it Christmas Yet?
     
    Verse
    I’ve been waiting for this day since back in July
    September was brutal, I thought I would die
    Finally December is right here upon us
    The clock moves so slowly; almost like it taunts us
     
    (repeat Chorus – two times)

    I Gotta Know Now - - Is it Christmas yet?
     
    Hey, Guys, I’m ready to get home for Christmas
    That’s right, Ernie, me too
    I’m ready for some turkey and dressing
    I’m ready for that apple pie
    I’m ready for some snow!
    Me too!

    A Quartet Christmas

    • Lyrics
    Words and Music by:
    Marty Funderburk, Sue C Smith

    Verse:
    December 1st you'll find me, Searching through my old "LPs", For Christmas songs by Perry, Nat or Bing, But since I'm still reliving my trip to NQC, It would make my Christmas, Just hearing four men sing

    Chorus:
    Let's have a quartet Christmas, That sounds real good to me, Let's have a quartet Christmas, Carols in four-part harmony, Now don't get me wrong I love hearing a choir, But if the bass could go low, And the tenor sing higher, It would fill this heart of mine with cheer, To have a quartet Christmas this year

    I'd love it if this Christmas, We would have an all-night sing, And though it wouldn't be a silent night, As every part would join in, We'd make those rafters ring, We'd celebrate like angels, We heard on high

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Tag:
    Now don't get me wrong, I love hearing a choir, But if the bass could go low, And the tenor sing higher, It would fill this heart of mine with cheer, To have a quartet Christmas this year, Let's have a quartet Christmas this year, Let's have a quartet Christmas year, Oh yeah

    Tonight

    • Lyrics
    Words by Gloria Gaither / Music by Benjamin Gaither

    Verse:
    Kings and shepherds make their way
    Straight to where a baby lay
    Rich and poor and lonely
    Bow before this sight
    A light, a star has led them to this place
    The Word that’s been echoing through space
    Becomes a child tonight

    Chorus:
    Light to shine in the darkest night
    Light to make all the wrong things right
    Light to show everyone the way
    Light to shine where a virgin lay
    Star of David, the prophet’s star
    Yahweh--God come to where we are
    Star to mark the Messiah’s birth
    Star of heaven now touches earth
    Tonight

    Angel voices fill the air
    Angel wings are everywhere
    Light so bright it’s blinding
    Shepherds shake with fright
    A song, a warmth begins to flood the hill
    “Fear not!  Peace to you--good will
    Comes to earth tonight”

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Light will be so bright
    It will shine through the darkest night
    Send down Your holy light

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Come Make a Place In Me

    • Lyrics
    Words & Music by:
    Joel Lindsey
    Sue C. Smith

    Verse:
    There in the hay Mary laid you
    And Joseph kept you warm
    You’d just arrived
    And with your first cry
    You fit right into their arms
    And just like you did in the stable
    Come do it all again
    There’s room for you
    Lord you’re invited in

    Chorus:
    Come make a place
    The shape of your love alone
    Come make a place
    Come make my heart your home
    Jesus I’m empty without you
    And you’re everything I need
    So come with your grace
    Come make a place in me

    Verse:
    I wasn’t there at the manger
    The night you came to earth
    Angels appeared
    But I didn’t hear
    The song that announced your birth
    But just like the shepherds came searching
    And wisemen came to see
    I come to you
    Trusting you’ll come to me

    (Repeat Chorus)

    Who Do You Think?

    • Lyrics
    Words and Music by:
    Harold Reid, Don Reid
     
    Verse:
    There are people, Who are whispering, And the rumors are running wild, There's a woman, Who's not married, But she's gonna have a child, Her name is Mary, She's a virgin, From down in Nazareth, Now listen close, She's gonna marry a man named Joseph, But the baby's father is the Holy Ghost

    Chorus:
    Who do you think, Could believe such a thing, Could believe that this story is true, Who do you think, could believe such a thing, Well here's hopin' to Heaven you do

    Verse:
    Now they're saying, She had a baby, In a barn in Bethlehem, And the star moved 'round the Heavens, 'Til is stopped right over them, Them some shepherds said an angel, Came and told them about His birth, They always knew men went to Heaven, But now God had come to earth

    (Repeat Chorus Twice)

    Tag:
    Well here's hopin' to Heaven you do, Do you believe, We're hopin' to Heaven you do, We're hopin to Heaven you do

    Glory to God in the Highest

    • Lyrics
    Words and Music by:
    Daryl Williams
     
    Verse:
    Look up, Fear not, The angel said, Behold the Messiah's come, The one of whom you read, And as they spoke to men that day, The Heavenly host around the throne joined in to say

    Chorus:
    Glory to God in the highest, Peace on earth good will to men, Heavenly angels announced His arrival in the little town of Bethlehem, Hallelujah to the Lord, sing Holy, He was born to save the world from sin, Glory to God in the highest Glory, Hallelujah to the Lord, Amen

    Verse:
    And still today the wise men come, Offering their praise to God's anointed one, And as they spoke their heart felt love, This glorious sound was on my ear from up above

    (Repeat Chorus Four Times)

    Tag:
    Hallelujah to the Lord, sing Holy, He was born to save the world from sin, Glory to God in the highest, Glory to God in the highest Glory, Hallelujah to the Lord, Amen, Amen, Amen, Glory to God in the highest

    The Night Heaven Kissed Earth

    • Lyrics
    Words and Music by:
    C Aaron Wilburn, Jerry Salley

    Verse:
    Heaven was silent as angels stood by, Anxiously waiting to hear His first cry, His journey from glory to a Bethlehem stall, Brought God down to man and gave hope to all

    Chorus:
    The night Heaven kissed earth, God showed his love through a baby boy's birth, His mercy echoed through the whole universe, The night Heaven kissed earth

    Verse:
    The stars all applauded as they gave their light, All of creation rejoiced at the sight, The promise once given all part of His plan, God was now cradled in human hands

    (Repeat Chorus Twice)

    Tag:
    The night Heaven kissed earth
