Christmas In July

It is no wonder why Oh happy day in July When I sing of peace and love and joy I of’t recall the birth of Mary’s baby boy Born that first Christmas day when angels did proclaim “O Earth, to you, a savior born; Jesus is His name.” Oh joyous day in July When yards turn brown and get too dry I read again the story Bibles tell Not like the Christmas advertisers sell I know a time angels to shepherds came And sang, “…a savior born; Jesus is His name.” Oh festive July day When I take time to pray I am glad the Christmas spirit still remains As I lift my voice with sweet angelic refrains Christmas came years ago from heaven above God’s gift given; precious Jesus, wrapped with love.
