Christmas in Heaven

Christmas in Heaven

I’m having my 22nd Christmas in Heaven.

Such glorious and wonderful days.

I’m standing with Saints of the Ages

Who found Christ the Truth and The Way.

I’ve sang with the heavenly choirs.

Just think, I, who longed to sing.

And Oh! What celestial music

We brought to our Savior and King.

We sang the glad songs of redemption,

How Jesus to Bethlehem came

And how they had called His name Jesus

That we all might be all might be saved

Through His name.

We sang once again with the angels

The song that we sang that blessed morn’

Where shepherds first heard the glad story

That Jesus the Savior was born.

Oh! Dear ones I wish you were here

No Christmas on earth could compare 

With all the rapture and glory

We witness in Heaven so fair.

You know how I always loved Christmas

It seemed such a wonderful day

With all of my loved my around me

And we children so happy and gay.

Yes I can see now why I loved it.

And Oh! What a joy it will be 

When you and my loved ones are with me

To share the glories I see.

So dear ones on earth here’s my greetings:

Look up until the day dawn appears 

And Oh! What a Christmas awaits us

Beyond all our partings and tears.

We miss you and love you Levi.
