Lyrics:

1.   Christmas Once Again
(Hilary Weeks)
 
When the frost comes
When mittens and hats go on
When the snow leaves a blanket of white veiling the ground
 
When housetops
Glisten with strings of light
When the children impatiently wait for that magical night
 
It’s Christmas
It’s Christmas once again
 
Sing Halleluia
For a star in the sky and angels who sang
Halleluia, O Halleluia
For the Gift Heaven gave
 
When sleigh bells ring
When evergreens scent the air
When the ovens and counters are filled with goodies to share
 
When the laughter begins
As families gather close
When the melodies of the season echo through our homes
 
It’s Christmas
It’s Christmas once again
 
Repeat Chorus
 
When hearts change
When hope conquers fear
When the things that really matter seem a little more clear
 
When a manger
Tells the story of how we’re blessed
When nations unite in peace and good will to all men
 
It’s Christmas
It’s Christmas once again
 
Repeat Chorus
 
Because of Him
It’s Christmas once again

7.   First Lullaby/Silent Night
(Hilary Weeks/Traditional)
 On this silent holy night
As I hold this precious child
There are no words for this moment
Heaven and Earth meet in my arms tonight
He is mine and yet He is God’s
Sleep now, Sleep my Son
Sleep in peace
 Years ahead will yet unfold
But tonight I’ll keep Him close
Safe and warm in the manger
Emmanuel sent here to save us
Tomorrow waits tonight rest your head
Sleep now, Sleep my Son
Sleep in peace
 Silent night, Holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon virgin, mother and child
Holy infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace

10.   Is There Room
 
(Hilary Weeks)
 
 I can almost see
If I close my eyes
I can almost see her face
 Filled with hope and wonder
She tells Joseph of
The Son she’ll bear one day
 Things she has kept in her heart
Things only she has known
Now Joseph too will know
 So with a prayer in her heart
And a babe inside
She tells what must be told
 As Mary looks at Joseph and waits for his reply
I wonder if this silent question crossed her mind
 Is there room
Is there room in your heart
Will you let this Miracle in
God’s own Son
God’s own Son has come to save us
Born for me and you
Is there room
 I can almost see
That holy night
As a new star lights the sky
 And Mary patiently waits
As Joseph faithfully makes
One more, one last try
 And Joseph knows the time is close as he knocks at the door
When the keeper of the inn appears Joseph asks once more
 Repeat Chorus
 And tonight as I tie the last bow
And put one more gift under the tree
I pause in the middle of all of the bustle
As the Spirit of this season whispers to me
 Repeat Chorus
