Have a holly, jolly Christmas,
And appreciate that meal;
There’s excitement in the air
That even the grown-ups feel.
But the lasting joy of Christmas
Is the love that surely shows,
For God’s presence comes through Jesus
And His peace, the believer knows.
Yes, there’s happiness for each receiver,
Who will turn to Him and pray;
Share the good news to all the others
That it’s possible to say:
Have a happy now and forever
And don’t forget it’s free.
When you live your life for Jesus
There is life eternally.
