about

Glockenspiel, Americana strings, and pop piano highlight this warm and memorable Christmas original. Marc Andre exchanges his alternative rock sound for a softer and heart-felt ballad that underscores the restlessness of the human heart and the life-changing hope found in the remarkable story of Christmas.

lyrics

Presents ‘round the Christmas tree,
Exchanging laughs and memories
A table full, we watch the snowflakes fall
But all the joys of the holidays
In moments seem to be replaced
Somehow we miss the greatest gift of all

But underneath this starry sky,
A striving heart still wonders why
Your boundless grace keeps shining down on me

This Christmas time,
May we marvel at Your love anew
This Christmas time,
Let us find our hope and our peace in You
If we could see through grateful eyes
The wonder of Your sacrifice
This Christmas time, this Christmas time
Do a miracle in us

A crib of straw, a child is born
A cross of blood, a mother mourns
He gave His life so He could bring us home
As prophets and as angels told,
He conquered death and He broke sin’s hold
Let us lose it all to make our Savior known

This Christmas time,
May we marvel at Your love anew
This Christmas time,
Let us find our hope and our peace in You
If we could see through grateful eyes
The wonder of Your sacrifice
This Christmas time, this Christmas time
Do a miracle in us

Oh, do a miracle

For God so loved the world
For God so loved the world

This Christmas time,
May we marvel at Your love anew
This Christmas time,
Let us find our hope and our peace in You
If we could see through grateful eyes
The wonder of Your sacrifice
This Christmas time, this Christmas time
Do a miracle in us

Do a miracle

But underneath this starry sky,
A striving heart still wonders why
Your boundless grace keeps shining down on me
