Matthew West - A Christmas To Believe In Lyrics

It's a house full of noise 'cause the family's all in town
It's an attic full of toys so the kids won't find out
The smell of cookies in the oven, it's a slow dance in the kitchen
Oh, ain't it somethin', it's a Christmas to believe in

It's in the snow making angels, it's a mistletoe kiss
It's an empty seat at the table to remember who we miss
It's a candle light carol, it's a grateful choir singin'
Oh Hark! The Herald, it's a Christmas to believe in

More than just a Merry Christmas
I'm wishing you a Christmas to believe in
Where the moments turn to memories
And years from now you'll close your eyes and see them
More than just another busy season
I'm wishing you a Christmas to believe in

It's a blanket by the fire watching all our favorite movies
"It's A Wonderful Life" in black and white just like it should be
It's Salvation Army bells, hear them ringing to remind us
There's a world that needs our help, may compassion come and find us

More than just a Merry Christmas
I'm wishing you a Christmas to believe in
Where the moments turn to memories
And years from now you'll close your eyes and see them
More than just another busy season
I'm wishing you a Christmas to believe in
A Christmas to believe in

Hallelujah, we believe in Christmas

It's grandpa's Bible opened up to Luke Chapter 2
It's the greatest gift of love being born for me and you
It's a heart returning home to the One who is the reason
Every Christmas is a Christmas to believe in
May your Christmas be a Christmas to believe in

    This song touched my heart and inner soul....”For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life”.

  6. Itsella

  12. Chelsea Smith

    The first 12 seconds reminds me of some country song. Can anyone help me figure out what it is?

  13. Mike Stock

    This Christmas song reminds me of my Dad, and my younger brother who have both passed away. Christmas without them is not the same.
    My Christmas wish is they both are in the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ. And one day we will be reunited

    Sofia Faith

  21. jesus my lord

    Beautiful song. That describe the true lord jesus birthday. Merry Christmas to all the Christ followers

  22. Brandon Cruise

    This song is stunningly beautiful in all it's thoughtfulness and meaning :) There's many people who have lost loved ones, while others are coming back "home". There's a lot of memories of which we hold in fondness and want to hold onto forever, hoping one day to create those with a family and others. One of my favorite things to experience was my Grandfather reading from his bible as warmth filled the air with each word he spoke. For me this is especially powerful because my family dealt with a lot of troubling issues, but love, understanding, forgiveness, and grace pulled us through over time. I can't thank my grandparents and other family members enough for being my guiding light by showing God's love and what the true meaning of Christmas is. This song echoes that in many wondrous ways :)

  23. Ben Cowan

    merry Christmas

    I use to help my grandpa decorate for Christmas.he is the one that helped me get over my fear of getting off the top step of the latter to get on top of the house to help put up lights around the edge of it.each year I inched my way further and further till I was leaning over the edge helping him hook the lights with no fear at all.and i use to have fear all the time of the top of the house. Christmas makes me sad because I miss him so much.he passed away in 2002

  46. Keerthan Karkada

    Song reminded me of my childhood Christmas.. I just heard it in the K Love Christmas stream and bought tears with mix of joy.. Wanted to hear one more time.. Thank you for the beautiful song and the hope which it can give to the broken hearts... Merry Christmas Sir..


    Keerthan Karkada It's such a beautiful song, so moving and so meaningful as indeed are all of Matthew West's songs. I suggest that you also listen to his songs The Heart of Christmas and Give This Christmas Away.

  50. Melissa

    I heard this for the first time the other day on the radio. I work for the Salvation Army and not only was I touched by the mention of it on the song, but because I was driving around town collecting kettle money. It deepened my joy that people give! Also, all the things in the song teared me up and I remembered all the good things of the season that are hard to enjoy because of stress and busyness. Thank you for this song, Matthew West! God bless you!
