about

"It's Merry Christmas Time" is a collection of Christmas nostalgia. Songs old and new meant to bring cheer and merriment. I will be adding at least one (if not more) tune every year as a gift to my friends and fans. Please pay what you can afford and share the love with your friends!

My hope is that this little record will be something that you look forward to year after year and one that brings delight, nostalgia and intrigue as we celebrate the most wonderful time of the year!

Track Name: It's Merry Christmas Time
VERSE 1
Old St. Nicholas round with cheer
Twinkling eye and frosty beard
Chestnuts, Yuletide, Mistletoe
Kisses for weathered souls


CHORUS
Bells ring, sleighs fly
Reindeer noses come alight
Memories, little time machines
Lights and Green, red and pine
Numb the sting and drink the wine
Its Merry Christmas time


VERSE 2
Wisemen, Shepherds, starry Call
Kings on knees before the stall
Promised Baby manger laid
O, Peace on earth this Holy Day

CHORUS
Track Name: Lo How A Rose E'er Blooming
VERSE 1
Lo, how a Rose e’er blooming
From tender stem hath sprung!
Of Jesse’s lineage coming
As men of old have sung.
It came a floweret bright
Amid the cold of winter
When, half was spent the night


VERSE 2
Isaiah ‘twas foretold it
The Rose I have in mind
With Mary we behold it
The virgin mother kind
To show God’s love aright
She bore to men a Savior
When, have spent was the night


VERSE 3
This flower, whose fragrance tender
With sweetness fills the air
Dispels with glorious splendor
The darkness everywhere
True Man yet very God
From sin and death He saves
Us, and lightens every load

VERSE 4
O Savior, child of Mary
Who felt our human woe
O Savior, King of Glory
Who dost our weakness know
Bring us length we pray
To bright courts of Heaven
And in-to the endless day!
Track Name: Christmas Glow
Christmas Glow

VERSE1:
Throw, the tinsel and the bow
the chestnut in the snow
Swirling mid-winter
threatens us all
Then the bell rings
calling us home
tidings we bring
With a Christmas
Glow


VERSE 2:
Sing till you can barely breathe
hear the children scream
bundle up their nose
whisper dreams
carry with them hope
their light flickers and beams
tidings they bring
with a Christmas
glow


VERSE 3:
Laugh like this will be your last
Christmas to have
Hold your people close
Love them fast
The cold air blows
and reminds us to slow
to be lighted
by the Christmas
Glow
the Christmas Glow

A Christmas Glow
Track Name: Peace on Earth Tonight
VERSE 1
Greens go yellow
Leaves turn brown
from high they tumble
Like walls to the ground


CHORUS:
Dance and drink
Lift our voices and sing
Lay down all quarrel and strife
Peace on earth tonight

VERSE 2
Bring out Sealed boxes
And resurrect our Cheer
Stringed Lights and garland
Envelop our fear

CHORUS


VERSE 3
The Eve it finds us
near and far
Forgetting what ails us
To gaze upon that star (build)


CHORUS 2
Dance and drink
Lift our voices and sing
Lay down all quarrel and strife
Every man look to the light
Peace on earth... tonight
Track Name: Early On One Christmas Morn (2016)
[CHORUS]
Early on one Christmas morn
Jesus Christ the son was born
Singing carols, Christmas songs
Early on one Christmas morn

Early on one Christmas morn
Jesus Christ the son was born
Singing carols, Christmas songs
Jesus Christ the son was born


[V1]
Three wise men saw the star at night
Star that lit the heavens so bright
Star that led them to where Christ was born
Early on one Christmas morn

[CHORUS]

In that city of Bethlehem
Wise men brought Him jewels and gems
Born in a manger humble and low
That is why we love Him so

[CHORUS]

Mary was his mother calm
Who held him gently in her arms
all hail and praise to Him
peace on earth, goodwill to men
