'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the church,
The chosen were singing out His Son's birth.
The Bibles were open to Matthew that night,
and praises were sung to a heavenly height.
The pastor spoke boldly the Word we all love,
About our sweet Jesus who came from above.
He spoke of salvation to those who were lost,
For whom Christ had died upon Calvary's cross.
He knew through the years we'd been bound up by sin,
But we could be free if we'd just let Him in.
So open your hearts all you people who know,
And let Jesus make your soul white as snow.
Heed the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John
About his great work that they've carried on.
THe Epistles of Paul will show us the way,
Revelation tells us of the glorious day.
At the sound of the trumpet and the blink of an eye
We'll be caught up with Jesus to a cloud in the sky.
We'll sit down with Jesus to a wonderful feast,
Then come back with Him to bind up the beast.
There'll be no dying, no sickness, no tears,
We'll reign in His glory for one thousand years.
And after these things a new heaven and earth,
And all because of our dear Savior's birth
So "Follow Me children" we hear Jesus say,
That He is the Truth, the Life, and the Way.
