This song is included in our “Contentment Calamity” Christmas Cantata.
Listen to Audio Samples HERE.
It’s that time of year when everywhere you go
Skies light up at night with brightly colored glow.
Sounds of silver bells ringing loud and clear
Are evidence to everyone that Christmastime is here.
Presents wrapped festively underneath the tree –
I wonder just which ones are waiting patiently for me.
Snowflakes fall tenderly from the winter sky
And smells abound throughout the town of grandma’s apple pie.
Gloria – how I love December! Gloria – how I love December!
Amid the fuss and hurry of this busy holiday,
May we all be mindful why we celebrate this way.
Jesus came from Heav’n above to our redemption pay.
Because of His atonement, the saved can surely say,
“Gloria – how I love the Savior!” “Gloria – how I love the Savior!”
Contentment comes not from a truckload of toys
Or striped Christmas candies or gingerbread boys.
It doesn’t arrive in a reindeer-pulled sleigh,
But only through Jesus, asleep on the hay.
He’s all that I need on this bless’d holiday.
