Christmas Drawing Near

I wrote the music for this song a few years ago, but didn’t compose lyrics until very recently. I hope you enjoy this pre-Christmas music!

LYRICS:

Angels sing as church bells ring

And all seem of good cheer

It’s the sound of Christmas drawing near

Snow may fall as sleigh bells call

We wonder as we hear

It’s the sound of Christmas drawing near

CHORUS

Let us tell the ancient carol story

With joy to last throughout the year

Of a king who came down from his glory

We sing of Christmas drawing near

Pine tree scents and ornaments

And tinsel on a tree

They are signs of Christmas soon to be

Fireplaces, icicles

And candles red and green

They are signs of Christmas soon to be

CHORUS

Spread the tale to every friend and stranger

Angelic comfort, “Do not fear”

And a baby lying in a manger

We sing of Christmas drawing near

Angels sing as churchbells ring

And all seem of good cheer

It’s the sound of Christmas drawing near

It’s a sign of Christmas drawing near

Tell the world of Christmas drawing near

NOTE: When performed on Christmas day, it is possible to substitute “that Christmas now is here” for “of Christmas drawing near.”

    Very nice…I like it. Beats a lot of the stuff you’d hear on the radio.
