Music and Me – Light a Candle

Light a candle
For the old man who sits staring
Out a frosty windowpane

Light a candle
For the woman who is lonely
And every Christmas is the same

For the children who need
More than presents can bring

Light a candle
Light the dark
Light the world
Light a heart or two
Light a candle for me
I’ll light a candle for you

Light a candle
For the homeless and the hungry
A little shelter from the cold

Light a candle
For the broken and forgotten
May the season warm their souls

Can we open our hearts
To shine through the dark

Light a candle
Light the dark
Light the world
Light a heart or two
Light a candle for me
I’ll light a candle for you

And in this special time of year
May peace on earth surround us here
And teach us there’s a better way to live
And with every (every) flame that burns
We must somehow learn
That love’s the greatest gift
That we could ever give…..

Light a candle
Light the dark
(light the world)
Light the world
(light a heart or two)
Light a heart or two
Light a candle for me
I’ll light a candle for you (I will)
Light a candle (oh, I will)
Light the dark ( because everybody needs a light)
Light the world
Light a heart or two (ohhh)
Light a candle for me (you know I will)
I’ll light a candle for you(you can light a candle)
Light candle for me
I’ll light a candle for you
(i will)
Light a
Light a candle for me
Oh, I’ll light a candle for you

Music and Me – I Need a Silent Night

I’ve made the same mistake before
Too many malls, too many stores
December traffic, Christmas rush
It breaks me till I push and shove
Children are crying while mothers are trying
To photograph Santa and sleigh
The shopping and buying and standing forever in line
What can I say?
I need a silent night, a holy night
To hear an angel voice through the chaos and the noise
I need a midnight clear, a little peace right here
To end this crazy day with a silent night
December comes then disappears
Faster and faster every year
Did my own mother keep this pace
Or was the world a different place?
Where people stayed home wishing for snow
Watching three channels on their TV
Look at us now rushing around
Trying to buy Christmas peace
I need a silent night, a holy night
To hear an angel voice through the chaos and the noise
I need a midnight clear, a little peace right here
To end this crazy day with a silent night
What was it like back there in Bethlehem
With peace on earth, good will toward men?
Every shepherd’s out in the field
Keeping watch over their flock by night
And the glory of the Lord shone around them
And they were so afraid
And the angels said fear not for behold
I bring you good news of a great joy that shall be for all people
For unto you is born this day a Savior, who is Christ the Lord
And his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Prince of Peace
I need a silent night, a holy night
To hear an angel voice through the chaos and the noise
I need a midnight clear, a little peace right here
To end this crazy day with a silent night
To end this crazy day with a silent night

Music and Me – One King

Kings of earth on a course unknown
Bearing gifts from afar
Hoping, praying
Following yonder star
Silhouette of a caravan
Painted against the sky
Wise men searching
For the Holy Child
One king held the frankincense
One king held the myrrh
One king held the purest gold
And one king held the hope of the world
A star hangs over Bethlehem
A journey ends in the night
Three kings trembling
Behold the glorious sight
Heaven’s treasure Emmanuel
Drawing men to bow down
Tiny baby born to wear a crown
One king held the frankincense
One king held the myrrh
One king held the purest gold
And one king held the hope of the world
God rest ye merry gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
Remember Christ our savior
Was born on Christmas day
To save us all from Satans power
When we were gone astray
Oh Tiny Baby born to wear a crown
One king held the frankincense
One king held the myrrh
One king held the purest gold
And one king held the hope of the world
One king held the frankincense
One king held the myrrh
One king held the purest gold
And one king held the hope of the world
One king held the purest gold
One king held the hope of the world

Music and Me – Strange Way to Save the World

I’m sure he must have been surprised
At where this road had taken him
Cause never in a million lives
Would he have dreamed of Bethlehem
And standing at the manger
He saw with his own eyes
The message from the angel come to life
And Joseph said
Why me, I’m just a simple man of trade
Why Him with all the rulers in the world
Why here inside this stable filled with hay
Why her, she’s just an ordinary girl
Now I’m not one to second guess
What angels have to say
But this is such a strange way to save the
World
To think of how it could have been
If Jesus had come as He deserved
There would have been no Bethlehem
No lowly shepherds at His birth
But Joseph knew the
Reason love had to reach so far
And as he held the Savior in his arms
He must have thought
Why me, I’m just a simple man of trade
Why Him with all the rulers in the world
Why here inside this stable filled with hay
Why her, she’s just an ordinary girl
Now I’m not one to second guess
What angels have to say
But this is such a strange way to save the
World

Music and Me – December Song

During the month of December, the “Music and Me” weekly feature is going to simply be lyrics from Christmas songs that I love.  Merry Christmas!!

In December
We give our gifts
Wishing well to our world
Peace on Earth to
Everyone
A time to be joyful
when all is calm
and all is bright
But why
Does it change with seasons?
And why can’t we just hold on?
to Silents Nights
Holy Nights
And Angels Singing
Lullabies and
Heaven and Nature
Singing Good Will To All…
To All
There are times
I can remember
with family and friends
the light of Christmas
radiates
It lights up my memories
the magic of love
we made time…
But why
Does it change with seasons?
And why can’t we just hold on?
to Silent Nights
Holy Nights
And Angels Singing
Lullabies and
Heaven and Nature
Singing Good Will To All…
To All
O Come Let Us Adore Him
O Come Let Us Adore Him
O Come Let Us Adore Him
