40 Days of Blogging Day 40: Christmas in Church




Get up on Christmas morning
Barely light except the tree
It's the tree that brought salvation
The dawn of eternity
See the gifts swaddled in paper
Little angels shout with joy
Then go meet with the faithful
Worship God born as a boy

Put the Mass back in Christmas
Come celebrate Christ's birth
It is through the Church His body
Christ brings peace into the earth
Put the Mass back in Christmas
Eat the bread and drink the wine
Put the Mass back in Christmas
Come partake of gifts divine

Come downstairs in robes of shepherds
Then get dressed up like kings
Leave your gifts in their wrappings
You can wait for all those things
Come worship with the Wise Men
The Lamb of God asleep
With angels and the shepherds
A thankful vigil keep

Put the Mass back in Christmas
Come celebrate Christ's birth
It is through the Church His body
Christ brings peace into the earth
Put the Mass back in Christmas
Eat the bread and drink the wine
Put the Mass back in Christmas
Come partake of gifts divine

And once the waiting's over
And God's broken your fast
Then return with rejoicing
To your presents at last
Remember that all good gifts
Come down from God above
He hung himself on the tree
To give us life and love

Put the Mass back in Christmas
Come celebrate Christ's birth
It is through the Church His body
Christ brings peace into the earth
Put the Mass back in Christmas
Eat the bread and drink the wine
Put the Mass back in Christmas
Come partake of gifts divine
