How far is it to Christmas?
How far is it to Christmas Day?
The journey’s just as long
As taking time to listen
To a joyful angel song
It’s just as far as one can go
In doing a loving deed
That help someone feel better
Or that meets their special need.
For Christmas is a journey
that the heart makes every year.
It starts right with your family
and those you hold so dear.
It travels on to strangers
round the world to everyone
with the message that God loves u
s and that’s why he sent his Son!
