At Christmas time we trim our tree
With gifts and candy canes
And go for joyful sleigh rides
Down sparking snow filled lanes.

We fill our homes with tinsel
Our hearts with Christmas cheer
We’re all a little nicer
At this lovely time of year.

Stores are filled with shoppers
Streets are trimmed in green
Carolers on each corner
'Tis quite a lovely scene.


But we cannot know the beauty
The splendor or the love
Of Christmas time in heaven
With our Savior up above.

The light that shines from Jesus
Stands out from all the rest
Of all the Christmas time displays
His is by far the best.


Like diamonds shining in the sun
You’ll find His flaming light
Like a million candles burning
In the middle of the night.

  The colors found in heaven
Have such a wondrous glow
And you’ll find a world of beauty
Where the golden rivers flow.

There won’t be gifts or mistletoe
Nor stately Christmas tree
But the throne of God will glisten
With the Blessed Trinity.
