Lyrics
Hark! the herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn King
Peace on earth and mercy mild
God and sinners reconciled

Joyful all ye nations rise
Join the triumph of the skies
With angelic hosts proclaim
Christ is born in Bethlehem
Hark! the herald angels sing
Glory to the new born King

There's a man
Who stands in the cold wind tonight
And greets everyone passing by
With a smile and a ringing bell
And a song
That he's playing
It's his own way of saying
Love is here
It's the music of Christmas

And there's a lady
Who sits all alone with her thoughts
And the memory of all that she's lost
When she hears a sound at her door
And a song comes to find her
As a gentle reminder
Love is here
It's the music of Christmas

So listen
Listen with your heart
You will hear a song
In the laughter of a child
Oh won't you listen
For the sound of home
You will hear the music of Christmas
For the music of Christmas is love

So light a fire
Tell the family to gather around
And the walls will echo the sound
Of memories that are and will be
And their voices like a chorus
Will sing it so sweetly for us
For love is here
It's the music of Christmas

So listen
Listen with your heart
You will hear a song
In the laughter of a child
Oh won't you listen
For the sound of home
You will hear the music of Christmas
For the music of Christmas is love

Long ago
A baby was born in the night
And as he let out his first cry
The sound was bringing hope alive
Stars were shining
Angels singing
All of heaven and earth was ringing
Love is here
This is the music of Christmas

So listen
Listen with your heart
You will hear a song
In the laughter of a child
Oh won't you listen
For the sound of home
You will hear the music of Christmas
For the music of Christmas is love
