lyrics

Eve of Christmas Day- (Allison Lupton- SOCAN)

Stars shine to guide our way
On the eve of Christmas Day
In from the cold this night
To a table warm with light

It’s a time of peace
A time of joy
A time of celebration
Yet my heart is low, for one I know
Far from us here

So join your voices with me
And sing to sweet memories
Sing to friendships true
Loves we knew
And the blessings of the year

Pine branches scent the air
Stories and songs we share
Children around the tree
Marvell at the mystery

And I wish you peace
I wish you joy
I wish you celebrations
May your heart be light this winter night
With laughter, love and cheer

So join your voices with me
And sing to sweet memories
Sing to friendships true
Loves we knew
And the blessings of the year
