Silver bells are ringing
Carolers are singing
Snowflakes drifting through the air
Everybody shopping
Got no time for stopping
It looks like Christmas is here
(So tell me)

How do I wrap my heart up for christmas?
I want to give it to you
Pretty bows and ribbons
Won't fit the gift I'm givin'
Your loving arms will have to do

At first I thought of giving you a pretty golden ring
Wore myself out shopping for a million other things
Finally decided on something you can't buy
But how will I disguise it so you will be surprised?

How do I wrap my heart up for christmas?
I want to give it to you
Pretty bows and ribbons
Won't fit the gift I'm givin'
Your loving arms will have to do

The gift of love was given to the world so long ago
Lying in a manger he was wrapped in swaddling clothes
Every year we celebrate and thank the Lord above
And give to one another our little gifts of love

How do I wrap my heart up for christmas?
I want to give it to you
Pretty bows and ribbons
Won't fit the gift I'm givin'
Your loving arms will have to do
