Forgetful of the one whose blood our freedom bought
Open cards and gifts; eat ham and turkey too
But we forgot the one to whom this special day is due. - Oh
Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way,
Jesus Christ the Prince of Peace was born upon this day - hey
Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Sing with joy and mirth,
Oh what fun to celebrate our Lord and Saviour's birth!
Christmas time is fun, that we all agree,
Sharing time and gifts with the family.
But there is much more to this Christmas day,
More than toys and gifts and food - together let us say - Oh!
Let's dash down to church on this sunny Christmas morn,
Everyone rejoice for Jesus Christ was born,
In Bethlehem this day, so many years ago.
He lived on Earth and died in pain
because he loves us so - Oh!
The words to this song were written by my daughter, Mum-me from the "Our Aussie Half Dozen" blog, written, I 'm guessing, in the very early 1990's and sung by our church almost every Christmas since, especially when I'm leading the singing. I'm not leading this Christmas, so maybe it won't be sung this year. However, it's very easy to pick-up, just think of the tune Jingle Bells and sing this song to that tune. Many people have asked for the words once they heard it sung.
