  • The child is a king, the carolers sing
    The old has passed, there's a new beginning
    Dreams of Santa, dreams of snow
    Fingers numb, faces aglow, it's

    Christmas time, mistletoe and wine
    Children singing Christian rhyme
    With logs on the fire and gifts on the tree
    A time to rejoice in the good that we see

    A time for living, a time for believing
    A time for trusting, not deceiving
    Love and laughter and joy ever after
    Ours for the taking, just follow the master

    Christmas time, mistletoe and wine
    Children singing Christian rhyme
    With logs on the fire and gifts on the tree
    A time to rejoice in the good that we see

    Silent night
    Holy night

    It's a time for giving, a time for getting
    A time for forgiving and for forgetting
    Christmas is love, Christmas is peace
    A time for hating and fighting to cease

    Christmas time (silent night), mistletoe and wine (Holy night)
    Children singing Christian rhyme
    With logs on the fire and gifts on the tree
    A time to rejoice in the good that we see

    Christmas time, mistletoe and wine
    Children singing Christian rhyme
    With logs on the fire and gifts on the tree
    A time to rejoice in the good that we see

    Christmas time (Christmas time), mistletoe and wine
    Children singing Christian rhyme
    With logs on the fire and gifts on the tree
    A time to rejoice in the good that we see

    Christmas time (silent night)
    Mistletoe and wine (Holy night)
    Children singing Christian rhyme
    With logs on the fire and gifts on the tree
    A time to rejoice in the good that we see Writer/s: Jeremy Paul, Keith Strachan, Leslie Stewart
