“Christmas Time Is Here,” New Era, Dec. 1997, 9In Tune:Christmas Time Is HereMusic by Tia M. RixWords by Richard C. Ferre and Tia M. Rix1. Children sing, caroling of Jesus’ birth tonight.Falling snow, a fire’s glow that warms the hearth so bright,Holly wreaths and Christmas trees that bring the fam’ly near.Christmas time is here!2. Light burst forth from the sky, and angels did appear.Shepherds, watching flocks by night, fell to the ground with fear!“Peace on earth, good will to men.” The angels’ anthem hear.Christmas time is here!3. Frankincense, gold, and myrrh were gifts the Wise Men gave.Jesus came, his life to give, the mortal world to save.Let us give to all mankind our comfort and good cheer.Christmas time is here!Copyright © 1997 by Tia M.
