10. Christmas Makes Me Cry (Featuring Mandisa)

The Heart of Christmas
by Matthew West



 

I think of loved ones who’ve passed away / And I pray they’re resting in a better place
/ I think of memories of years gone by / And sometimes Christmas makes me cry // I
think of soldiers across the sea / And sometimes I wonder why it’s them instead of me
/ That for my freedom they give their lives / And sometimes Christmas makes me cry
// Tears of thankfulness / Tears of hope / I cry tears of joy at Christmas / Because I
know / There is peace on Earth / For every heart to find / And sometimes Christmas
makes me cry // I think of family, I think of home / And say a prayer for those who
spend this time alone / ‘Cause love can reach out into a silent night / And that’s why
Christmas makes me cry // I think of Mary and a virgin birth / And I’m amazed by
how much god thinks we are worth / That He would send His only son to die / And
sometimes Christmas makes me cry
