My First Christmas in Heaven

I see the countless Christmas trees
Around the world below,
With tiny lights like heavens stars
Reflecting on the snow

The sight is so spectacular,
Please wipe away the tear
For I am spending Christmas
With Jesus Christ this year

I hear the many Christmas songs
That people hold so dear
But the sounds of music can’t compare
With the Christmas choir up here

I have no words to tell you,
The joy their voices bring,
For it is beyond description,
To hear the angels sing

I know how much you miss me
I see the pain inside your heart
But I am not so far away
We really are not apart.

So be happy for me, dear ones,
You know I hold you dear,
And be glad I’m spending Christmas
With Jesus Christ this year

I sent a special gift,
From my heavenly home above
I sent you each a memory
Of my undying love                 
After all, love is a gift more
Precious than pure gold
It was always most important
In the stories Jesus told

Please love and keep each other,
As my father said to do
For I can’t count the blessings or
Love He has for each of you

So, have a Merry Christmas and
Wipe away that tear
Remember I am spending Christmas
With Jesus Christ this year
