03. The Heart Of Christmas

The Heart of Christmas
by Matthew West


Iím gonna make a wish this Christmas / Iím gonna say a
little prayer / Iím gonna stop here for a moment / Before the
moment disappears // The worldís 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 / Donít miss it,
the heart of Christmas // Letís make it feel the way it used
to / Letís find that wonder of a child / You can see the magic
all around you / Come on, and open up your eyes // You can
find it in the warm embrace of your family / Or calling up a
long lost friend / You can even find it in the eyes of stranger
/ When you reach out a helping hand // In the shadow of a
steeple / In a star that lights the way / You will find Him in
a manger / The heart of Christmas has a name // Iím gonna
make a wish this Christmas / Iím gonna say a little prayer
