The spirit of Christmas is often found
In things that we can see
A street of gold and silver
A sparkling Christmas tree.

Itís found in quiet serenity
Of freshly fallen snow
In lights upon the river
A candlesí gentle glow.

Itís found in pretty presents
And treasures of delight
In stories told of Christmasí past
On cold and wintry nights.

Itís found in Yuletide carolers
Who stand out in the street
And spread good cheer and tidings
To everyone they meet.

Itís found in bustling cities
As choirs get up to sing
In sleepy little villages
Where lonely church bells ring.

Itís found within a beggarís heart
Who kindly takes the time
To help a cold and hungry child
By sharing his last dime.

Itís found within the prisons walls
And temples made of stone
Itís found within the orphanages
And in the nursing homes.

Itís found within the wise men
Who brought gifts from far away
And the eastern star that led them
To the stable where He lay.

Itís found within the Spirit
This gift from up above
Itís filled with pure salvation
And wrapped in His sweet love.

Itís even found in old St. Nick
As he kneels down to pray
To Jesus, Blessed Redeemer
Who was born on Christmas day.
