My First Christmas in Heaven

My First Christmas in Heaven

I can see the countless Christmas trees around the world below
With their tiny lights all aglow,
Just like the stars of Heaven shining on the snow.

The view is so spectacular,
Please wipe away those tears.
You see there is really nothing to fear,
For I am spending Christmas
With Jesus this year.

I hear the many Christmas carols that people hold so dear,
But the sounds of that music can’t measure up to
The Christmas choir up here.

I have no words to tell you,
The joy their voices bring.
For they are beyond description,
To hear the Angels sing.

So be happy for me, dear,
And be glad for me.
Because I’m spending Christmas,
With Jesus this year.

I sent each of you a very special gift,
From my heavenly home above.
I sent each of you a precious memory,
Of my eternal love.

After all,
Love is more precious than gold.
It was the most important thing,
About the stories Jesus told.

Please love, and keep each other,
As Jesus said to do.
I can’t tell you of the blessings and love,
He has for each of you.

So have a Merry Christmas,
And wipe away that tear.
Remember, I’m spending Christmas,
With Jesus Christ this year!

In memory of those who are gone but not forgotten.
