Somebody’s cancelled Christmas!
But gives no reason why
There won’t be any Christmas trees or bright lights in the sky
I don’t know why it’s happened
I really can’t explain
Why this year dear old Santa Claus
Will not be back again.
We’ll cancel the nativity
And send the gnomes away
I’ll have to phone the superstore to take down their display
Don’t bother with the party
We don’t need the balloons
Or any decorations that are hanging in the rooms.
Somebody’s cancelled Christmas
It seems so strange but true
Yet Christmas isn’t all around
It’s in the heart of you
We don’t need fancy trimmings or artificial fun
For Jesus is the Saviour
Who will come to everyone.
So in the scorching desert
Or cold Alaskan ice
And in the swampy grasslands where it isn’t very nice
It doesn’t matter where you are in sand or mud or snow
The Christ of Christmas calls your name
Because He loves you so.
And even if the Christmas season touches you with pain
Or loneliness surrounds you
There’s still one thing remains
The Saviour King of Bethlehem is here as God and King
To give you back your Christmastime
And make your glad heart sing.
