Christmas in Heaven

ĎTis Christmas in Heaven

What a beautiful sight

It's my first time here

Everything is all right.

The crib is adorned

With the brilliance of stars,

Wisemen have come

From Venus and Mars.

Iíve met all my old friends

Who preceded me here

The reunion was great

An event full of cheer.

And tonight we'll all gather,

In reverence we'll kneel,

For the Babe in the cradle

Up in Heaven is real.

I think of my family

That I left behind

And I pray that your Christmas

Is as blessed as mine

Please shed no more tears,

For my soul is at rest,

Just love one another;

Live life to its best.

Yes, Itís Christmas In Heaven,

So Iíve heard them say,

Yet, Christmas In Heaven

Happens every day.
