Advent 2020 #15: Christmas This Year

Last week I made it to Wednesday before I hit the music track. Tuesday this week = Christmas This Year. It’s time for a pick up from veteran Christian music artist, Toby Mac.

It’s a track from 2011 and it’s a bit of fun, but it also reflects on the wonder of a holy God favouring us enough to come to earth to save us. Lyrics are below as usual.

Yours in thanking the Lord for His favour,

Alison

As fall rides off in the sunset
I sweep the snow from my doorstep
I just can’t help but stop and grin
It’s like I’m ten years old again
And everywhere I go I can feel it

Some say it moves like a spirit
It falls on us once a year
Like it came on a midnight clear
It’s all love
The season is a gift
When love came down to let us live
Let’s open up and let our hearts embrace this moment

For Christmas this year
Gonna make a sound
Gonna make it loud
For Christmas this year
We’re gonna make some noise
Let the world rejoice
For Christmas this year
For Christmas
For Christmas this year

The laughter starts before the sunrise
I sneak downstairs at the sparklin’ lights
And oh what joy it brings to me
Our family around our Christmas tree
And I thank the Lord for His favour
As we sing the songs of the Saviour
Our Saviour

It’s all love
The season is a gift
When love came down to let us live
Let’s open up and let our hearts embrace this moment

For Christmas this year
Gonna make a sound
Gonna make it loud
For Christmas this year
We’re gonna make some noise
Let the world rejoice
For Christmas this year
For Christmas
For Christmas this year

Holy Holy holy
God is coming near
Unto us a Saviour born
On a midnight clear

Holy Holy holy
God is coming near
Unto us a saviour born
On a midnight clear
Oh

For Christmas this year
Gonna make a sound
Gonna make it loud
For Christmas this year
We’re gonna make some noise
Let the world rejoice
For Christmas this year
For Christmas
For Christmas this year

For Christmas this year
Gonna make a sound
Gonna make it loud
For Christmas this year
We’re gonna make some noise
Let the world rejoice
For Christmas this year
For Christmas
For Christmas this year

Holy Holy holy
God is coming near
Unto us a saviour born
On a midnight clear
