Lyrics

THERE USED TO BE A DAY WE'D GATHER
FROM FAR AND WIDE ON CHRISTMAS DAY
SPENDING TIME WITH FRIENDS AND FAM'LY
TOGETHER ON CHRISTMAS DAY

TODAY ARE LIVES ARE WAY TOO BUSY
TO GATHER 'ROUND THE CHRISTMAS TREE
SINGING CAROLS OF THE SAVIOUR
WHO WAS BORN FOR YOU AND ME

NOWADAYS JESUS IS MISSING
NOW IT'S JUST A HOLIDAY
SOMETHING IN THE AIR IS MISSING
JUST THOUGHT I HAD TO SAY

I REMEMBER TIMES ON CHRISTMAS EVE
GATHERED AT THE CHURCH TO PRAY
GOD WAS THERE AND IT WAS SPECIAL
I STILL REMEMBER TO THIS DAY

I WILL KEEP THE CHRIST IN CHRISTMAS
AND KEEP THIS HOLY HOLIDAY
HELP ME KEEP THE CHRIST IN CHRISTMAS
AND CELEBRATE THIS HOLY DAY

NOWADAYS JESUS IS MISSING
NOW IT'S JUST A HOLIDAY
SOMETHING IN THE AIR IS MISSING
JUST THOUGHT I HAD TO SAY

JESUS PROMISED US HIS BLESSINGS
WHEN WE GATHER IN HIS NAME
PEOPLE, WOULD FEEL MUCH BETTER
I KNOW THAT HE FEELS THE SAME

WHY, OH WHY, DID WE BID HIM GO
TO MAKE ROOM FOR ALL OF OUR PRESENTS
INSTEAD OF HIS LOVING CARE
WHY, OH WHY, HOW COULD WE LET HIM GO
AND NEGLECT SUCH A GREAT SALVATION
FOR OUR SINS THAT OUR SAVIOUR BORE

THERE USED TO BE DAY WE'D GATHER
FROM FAR AND WIDE ON CHRISTMAS DAY
REMEMBERING OUR PRECIOUS SAVIOUR
TOGETHER ON CHRISTMAS DAY
