God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith; the warmth of Christmas, which is love; the radiance of Christmas, which is purity; the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice; the belief in Christmas, which is truth; the all of Christmas, which is Christ!

 I DO BELIEVE that the Christmas season is more than just a time for the spreading of good cheer.  I DO BELIEVE that the Christmas season is more than just a time for exchanging gifts.  I DO BELIEVE that the Christmas season is more than just a time for enjoying those tasty “delectables” that we save especially for this time of the year. I DO BELIEVE that the Christmas season is a time for the very special magic that comes from celebrating the love that is family.  I DO BELIEVE that the Christmas season is a time when we, as members of an earthly family, whatever that means to each of us, are inexplicably tied to the miracle of the family of the Christ child.  I DO BELIEVE that the Christmas season is a time when, as we exchange our gifts with those we love, that we remember God’s greatest gift to human kind!  I DO BELIEVE that the Christmas season is a time of LOVE! And  I DO BELIEVE that it is this Christmas LOVE that we carry forth and share with others throughout the year, that has the capacity to work its very own miracle on each and every heart, each and every single day, all year through! I DO BELIEVE!

I DO BELIEVE IN CHRISTMAS, I BELIEVE IN LOVE

Whenever I hear a Christmas song I wanna get up and sing
Wherever there’s love I sing along and find some bells to ring
Wherever there’s angels up above
Wherever there’s Christmas trees
There’s gonna be peace and hope and love and wonderful memories
There’ll be laughter there’ll be song we’ll o caroling all night long
Believing in Christmas makes it magic can’t you see

It’s better to give than to receive
Blessings for you and me
Staying up late on Christmas eve
Will there be presents for me
There’ll be laughter there’ll be song we’ll go caroling all night long
Believing in Christmas makes it magic can’t you see

I do believe in Christmas
I believe in love
As sure as there is santa ringing sleigh bells up above
We do believe in harmony and family and good cheer
Throughout the year

Whenever there’s hope in the air
Whenever we light the tree
Whenever there’s love in our prayers
That’s Christmas time for me
Whenever I hear a Christmas song I wanna get up and sing
Whenever there’s love I sing along and find some bells to ring
There’ll be laughter there’ll be song we’ll go caroling all night long
Believeing in Christmas makes it magic can’t you see
For you and me

I do believe in Christmas
I believe in love
As sure as there is santa ringing sleigh bells up above
We do believe in harmony and family and good cheer
Throughout the year
(Throughout the year)

I do believe in Christmas
I believe in love
As sure as there is santa ringing sleigh bells up above
We do believe in harmony and family and good cheer
(Good cheer)
We do believe in Christmas
Throughout the year
