Every Light that Shines at Christmas (2010)

  • 1

    He Started The Whole World Singing

    • Lyrics
    (Bill Gaither, Gloria Gaither and Chris Waters)

    (Verse 1)

    Before the song started, the world broken hearted
    Was dreamlessly passing the long empty days
    Then a dark, lonely hillside was spangled with light
    And a song burst into the night

    (Chorus)

    He started the whole world singing a song
    The words and the music were there all along
    What the song had to say was that love found a way
    To start the world singing a song

    REPEAT CHORUS 3 TIMES

    (Hymn)

    O come let us adore Him
    O come let us adore Him
    O come let us adore Him, Christ the Lord

    For He alone is worthy
    For He alone is worthy
    For He alone is worthy
    Christ (the Lord)
    Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ the Lord
    The Lord

    Marshmallow World

    • Lyrics
    (Carl Sigman and Peter DeRose)

    It's a marshmallow world in the winter,
    When the snow comes to cover the ground.
    It's the time for play, it's a whipped cream day,
    I wait for it the whole year round!

    Those are marshmallow clouds being friendly,
    In the arms of the evergreen trees;
    And the sun is red like a pumpkin head,
    It's shining so your nose won't freeze!

    The world is your snowball, see how it grows,
    That's how it goes, whenever it snows.
    The world is your snowball just for a song,
    So get out and roll it along!

    It's a yum-yummy world made for sweethearts,
    Take a walk with your favorite girl.
    It's a sugary date, so what if spring is late,
    In winter it's a marshmallow world!

    INSTRUMENTAL BREAK

    The world is your snowball, see how it grows,
    That's how it goes whenever it snows.
    The world is your snowball just for a song,
    So get out and roll it along!

    It's a yum-yummy world made for sweethearts,
    Take a walk with your favorite girl.
    It's a sugary date, so what if spring is late,
    In winter it's a marshmallow world...
    In winter it's a marshmallow world...
    In winter it's a marshmallow world...

    Every Light That Shines at Christmas

    • Lyrics
    (Joel Lindsey, Ernie Haase, Wayne Haun)

    (Chorus)

    Every light that shines at Christmas
    Every gift under the tree
    Every hall thatís decked with holly
    Every carol that we sing
    Every wide-eyed kid whoís wishing for a cold and snowy morní
    Every light that shines at Christmas shouts, ďHallelujah, Christ is bornĒ

    (Verse)

    Wise men saw a light shining in the sky
    All those many years ago
    They followed through the night without asking why
    To the baby in the swaddling clothes
    So today we string up sparkling lights
    From our houses to the tops of our trees
    Cause it's just another way
    That we all get to say
    What Jesus means to you and me.

    REPEAT CHORUS

    (Bridge)

    Yeah, I gotta light, I gotta light
    I gotta light
    Oh, and I gotta light
    Iím gonna let it shine

    REPEAT CHORUS

    (Tag)

    Every light that shines at Christmas shouts, ďHallelujah, HallelujahĒ
    Shouts, ďHallelujah, Christ is born. Heís born. Christ is born. He is born!Ē

    REPRISE

    (Chorus)

    Every light that shines at Christmas
    Every gift under the tree
    Every hall thatís decked with holly
    Every carol that we sing
    Every wide-eyed kid whoís wishing for a cold and snowy morní
    Every light that shines at Christmas shouts, ďHallelujah, HallelujahĒ
    Shouts, ďHallelujah, HallelujahĒ
    Shouts, ďHallelujah! Christ is born. Heís born. Christ is born. He is born!Ē

    Redeeming Love

    • Lyrics
    (Bill Gaither, Gloria Gaither)

    (Verse 1)

    From Godís heaven to a manger
    From great riches to the poor
    Came the Son of God to seek and save
    From the azure halls of heaven
    To a rough and rugged cross
    Jesus came, and there His life for all He gave

    (Verse 2)

    From a loving, Heavenly Father
    To a world that knew Him not
    Came the man of sorrows, Christ the Lord
    In my wanderings He found me
    Bought my soul with His own blood
    Gave to me a peace this world could not afford

    (Chorus)

    Redeeming love, a love that knows no limit
    Redeeming love, a love that shall not die
    My soul shall sing throughout the endless ages
    With choirs extolling this great love on high

    (TAG)

    My soul shall sing throughout the endless ages
    With choirs extolling this great love on high
    Redeeming love, redeeming love

    Changed By a Baby Boy

    • Lyrics
    (Benjamin Gaither, Gloria Gaither)

    (Verse 1)

    Joseph was looking for a place to sleep when
    His life was changed by a baby boy
    Mary had secrets that her heart must keep
    Her life was changed by a baby boy

    They were glad (so glad)
    So glad (so glad)
    They were glad, so glad
    Their lives were changed by a baby boy

    (Verse 2)

    Their lives were changed by a baby boy
    And when the angel said, ďgoĒ they obeyed the command
    Their lives were changed by a baby boy

    Hallelujah, hallelujah
    Hallelujah

    (Verse 3)

    The kings had to follow a brand new star
    Their lives were changed by a baby boy
    No matter how long and no matter how far
    Their lives were changed by a baby boy
    I was searching for something I could not name until
    My life was changed by a baby boy
    I gave Him room and I am not the same because
    My life was changed by a baby boy
    Spoken: He saved my soul and I want you to know that

    (Chorus)

    Iím glad (Iím glad)
    So glad (so glad)
    So glad (Iím so glad)
    My life was changed by a baby boy

    • Lyrics
    (Eddy Raven)

    (Verse 1)

    If it werenít for kids have you ever thought there wouldnít be a Santa Clause
    Or look what the stork just brought

    And weíd all live in a quiet house without Big Bird or a Mickey Mouse
    Or Kool-Aid on the couch
    Thank God for kids

    Thank God for kids, thereís magic for a while
    A special kind of sunshine in a smile
    Do you ever stop to think or wonder why
    The dearest thing to heaven is a child

    (Verse 2)

    ďDaddy, how does this thing fly?Ē and a hundred other whereís and whys
    I really donít know but I try
    Thank God for kids
    When I look down in those trusting eyes that look to me I realize
    Thatís love that I canít buy
    Thank God for kids

    So when you get down on your knees tonight

    God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

    • Lyrics
    God rest ye merry, gentlemen
    Let nothing you dismay
    Remember, Christ, our Savior
    Was born on Christmas day
    To save the world from Satan's power
    When we were gone astray
    O tidings of comfort and joy,
    Comfort and joy
    O tidings of comfort and joy

    From God that is our Father
    The blessed Angel came;
    Unto certain Shepherds
    Glad tidings of the same:
    That was born in Bethlehem
    The Son of God by Name.
    O tidings of comfort and joy,
    Comfort and joy
    O tidings of comfort and joy

    In Bethlehem, of Judah,
    The blessed Babe was born
    And laid within a manger
    This blessed Holy morn

    To which His Mother Mary
    Did nothing take in scorn
    O tidings of comfort and joy,
    Comfort and joy
    O tidings of comfort and joy

    What Child Is This

    • Lyrics
    (Traditional)

    (Verse 1)

    What child is this who lay to rest
    On Maryís lap is sleeping?
    Whom angels greet with anthems sweet
    While shepherds watch our keeping?

    (Chorus 1)

    This, this is Christ the King
    Whom shepherds guard and angels sing
    Haste, haste to bring Him laud
    The Babe, the Son of Mary

    (Verse 2)

    Where lies He in such mean estate
    Where ox and lamb are feeding?
    Good Christians fear, for sinners here
    The silent Word is pleading

    (Chorus 2)

    Nails, nails shall pierce Him through
    The cross be borne for me and you
    Hail, hail the Word made flesh
    The Babe, the Son of Mary

    (Verse 3)

    So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh
    Come peasant, come king to own Him
    The King of Kings salvation brings
    Let loving hearts enthrone Him

    (Chorus)

    Raise, raise a song on high
    The virgin sings her lullaby
    Joy, joy for Christ is born
    The Babe, the Son of Mary
    Ooh, ooh

    • Lyrics

    (Milton Paschal, Gerald Marks)

    (Verse 1)

    Santa works all day in his workshop
    Making lots of games and toys
    Then one day, he hops in his sleigh
    And brings them to the girls and boys
    Santa's just as nice as he can be
    There's just one little thing that worries me

    (Chorus)

    If it doesn't snow on Christmas
    How is Santa gonna to use his sleigh
    In case of rain, will there be a train
    That will speed him on his way
    If it doesn't snow on Christmas
    How will Santa get around to us
    If he breaks down on his way to town
    Then we'll let him use our bus

    (Bridge)

    I sent him a nice long letter
    And I hope it's not in vain
    I'd really feel much better
    If I knew he could fly a plane

    (Chorus 2)

    People say he has eight reindeer
    For the sleigh he's driving here
    But how'll he go, if it doesn't snow on Christmas this year<

    • Lyrics
    Wayne Haun, Joel Lindsey

    (verse 1)

    light a candle
    for the old man who sits staring
    out a frosty windowpane
    light a candle
    for the woman who is lonely
    and every Christmas is the same
    for the children who need
    more than presents can bring

    light a heart or two
    light a candle for me
    I'll light a candle for you

    (verse 2)

    light a candle
    for the homeless and the hungry
    a little shelter from the cold
    light a candle
    for the broken and forgotten
    may the season warm their souls
    can we open our hearts
    to shine through the dark

    repeat chorus

    (bridge)

    and in this special time of year
    may peace on earth surround us here
    and teach us there's a better way to live
    and with every (every) flame that burns
    we must somehow learn
    that love's the greatest gift
    that we could ever give.....
