TobyMac - This Christmas

This Christmas
TobyMac

Joy to the world
Let Heaven and nature sing
Let Heaven and nature sing

Now Johnny never got his wish
On December 25th
That’s what he said
When we left the orphanage
9 years old
But Johnny was an old soul
Gonna spend his first Christmas
In a real home
Showed me a picture
That he drew the night before
Was a picture of a man
Standin’ outside a door
I asked him who it was
And he said
Someone I only see in dreams
Comforts me
When I cry myself to sleep

Father of the fatherless
Be with your sons and daughters
This Christmas
This Christmas

Believe in angels
Johnny asked me
Starin’ at the sky
I said I do
And saw a sparkle in his eye
Big brother for the weekend
Respondin’ to the season
Took the chance
That givin’s better than receivin’
Two nights
A new family
Some holiday cheer
We laughed and sang
Came on a midnight clear
We gave
Received
And as we headed to close
We looked to the heavens
And it started to snow
Down blessings

Father of the fatherless
Be with your sons and daughters
This Christmas

You ain’t livin’
‘Til you choose to give
Love and joy and peace
To one of His

Father let us not forget
The children who are all alone
This Christmas

You ain’t livin’
‘Til you choose to give
You ain’t livin’
‘Til you choose to give

Religion that God our Father
Accepts as pure and faultless
Is this
To look after orphans
And widows
In their distress [James 1:27]
Merry Christmas everyone

Joy to the world
The Lord is come
Let Heaven and nature sing
Let Heaven and nature sing
Let Heaven and nature sing
Let Heaven and nature sing

Believe in angels
Johnny asked me
Starin’ at the sky
I said I do
And saw a sparkle in his eye
9 years old
But Johnny was an old soul
Gonna spend his next Christmas
In a real home

Father of the fatherless
Be with your sons and daughters
This Christmas

You ain’t livin’
‘Til you choose to give
Love and joy and peace
To one of His

Father let us not forget
The children who all alone
This Christmas

You ain’t livin’
‘Til you choose to give
Love and joy and peace
To one of His

Father of the fatherless
Be with your sons and daughters
This Christmas

Let Heaven and nature sing
Let Heaven and nature sing

Father let us not forget
The children who are all alone
This Christmas

You ain’t livin’
‘Til you choose to give
You ain’t livin’
‘Til you choose to give
You ain’t livin’
You ain’t livin’
You ain’t livin’

Let Heaven and nature sing
Let Heaven and nature sing

You ain’t livin’
‘Til you choose to give
You ain’t livin’
‘Til you choose to give
Don’t leave me all alone
This Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone
