It’s HERE! Christmas time. Matthew West has written what I hope becomes a Christmas Classic. It grabs both the joy of Christmas but maybe more importantly, it grabs the HOPE of Christmas. Don’t we all want this Christmas to be extraordinary? Don’t we want the presence of the Lord to restore our lives in some new and glorious way? Isn’t rebirth the whole message of the New Born King?
What if we all did as Matthew West asks in the opening lines of the song… what if we prayed for us to come back to the heart of Christmas and find renewal from the Christ Child this Christmas? Sounds good to me.
I’m gonna make a wish this Christmas
I’m gonna say a little prayer
I’m gonna stop here for a moment
Before the moment disappears
The world’s in a hurry this December
City streets and shopping malls
I wish we could slow down and remember
The meaning of it all
Wherever you are, no matter how far
Come back to the heart, the heart of Christmas
Live while you can, cherish the moment
The ones that you love, make sure they know it
Don’t miss it, the heart of Christmas
You’ll love the video.
