Matthew West - The Heart Of Christmas Lyrics




I’m gonna make a wish this Christmas
I’m gonna say a little prayer
I’m gonna stop here for a moment
Before the moment disappears

The world’s in a hurry this December
City streets and shopping malls
I wish we could slow down and remember
The meaning of it all

Wherever you are, no matter how far
Come back to the heart, the heart of Christmas
Live while you can, cherish the moment
The ones that you love, make sure they know it
Don’t miss it, the heart of Christmas

Let’s make it feel the way it used to
Let’s find that wonder of a child
You can see the magic all around you
Come on, and open up your eyes

You can find it in the warm embrace of your family
Or calling up a long lost friend
You can even find it in the eyes of stranger
When you reach out a helping hand

Wherever you are, no matter how far
Come back to the heart, the heart of Christmas
Live while you can, cherish the moment
The ones that you love, make sure they know it
Don’t miss it, the heart of Christmas

In the shadow of a steeple
In a star that lights the way
You will find Him in a manger
The heart of Christmas has a name

I’m gonna make a wish this Christmas
I’m gonna say a little prayer

Wherever you are, no matter how far
Come back to the heart, the heart of Christmas
Live while you can and cherish the moment
The ones that you love, make sure they know it

Wherever you are, no matter how far
Come back to the heart, the heart of Christmas
Live while you can, cherish the moment
The ones that you love, make sure they know it
Don’t miss it, the heart of Christmas

  41. stephanie Weister

    This song is so true. My dad left us when I was 16 back in 2016 and now my mom met someone and left me when I am a seinor in school just a month ago. I'm thankful I had a sister to take me in but this is all so hard. I always feel like if I wasn't good enough for my parents, why am I good enough for anyone? It hurts me knowing I am losing time with my parents. I'm going to college in 11 months and I am worried thinking I won't be good enough to make it in college if I not good enough for my own parents. I am thankful for wonderful teachers and a guidance counselor to help me.

    I’m gonna make a wish this Christmas
    I’m gonna say a little prayer
    I’m gonna stop here for a moment
    Before the moment disappears
    The world’s in a hurry this December
    City streets and shopping malls
    I wish we could slow down and remember
    The meaning of it all
    Wherever you are, no matter how far
    Come back to the heart, the heart of Christmas
    Live while you can, cherish the moment
    The ones that you love, make sure they know it
    Don’t miss it, the heart of Christmas
    Let’s make it feel the way it used to
    Let’s find that wonder of a child
    You can see the magic all around you
    Come on, and open up your eyes
    You can find it in the warm embrace of your family
    Or calling up a long lost friend
    You can even find it in the eyes of stranger
    When you reach out a helping hand
    Wherever you are, no matter how far
    Come back to the heart, the heart of Christmas
    Live while you can, cherish the moment
    The ones that you love, make sure they know it
    Don’t miss it, the heart of Christmas
    In the shadow of a steeple
    In a star that lights the way
    You will find Him in a manger
    The heart of Christmas has a name
    I’m gonna make a wish this Christmas
    I’m gonna say a little prayer
    Wherever you are, no matter how far
    Come back to the heart, the heart of Christmas
    Live while you can and cherish the moment
    The ones that you love, make sure they know it
    Wherever you are, no matter how far
    Come back to the heart, the heart of Christmas
    Live while you can, cherish the moment
    The ones that you love, make sure they know it
    Don’t miss it, the heart of Christmas

    Dec 2017 anyone ?

  66. Barbara S

    I do not know why, but I bought this song on ITunes.  I start playing my Christmas music this year. I love Matthew West music and the story behind them. Anyway, I found this song on my playlist. I was kind of out of it last year. I don't have kids, but I have worked with kids for 30 years. I loved everyone of them and call them my own. I lost one, Libby Claire (lost the battle against cancer at age of 6). I never seen the movie nor this video. I was going to dedicate the song on my FB page in her memory, but the video is perfect. I going go search for the movie today. Before I leave, let's all say a prayer for all the children of the world (so much corruption) especially the ones battling cancer. P.S. I still do not know how this song got on my playlist.

  67. Carda Berge

    Matthew West you are just the most powerful, upliving, heart lifting, song speaking man. Your my friend. And spiritually my brother. Your songs always speak to me. Keep up the great songs and careers.

  71. Chris Salzman

    this movie is very touching had me in tears.

  72. Grace Guetschow

    "Cherish the moment, and the ones that you love, make sure they know it"
    This almost made me cry, because my Grandpa died about a week ago and even though he lived a few blocks away from me, I didn't spend much time with him. Spend your life with those you love, because sometimes they go quicker than you ever would've imagined.

  73. VRP14

    My all time favourite Christmas song, so powerful and touching.
