The Last Christmas

As I make cookies, send out Christmas cards, and organize gifts, I  find myself frequently listening to one Christmas song. Although it is obscure, it is uniquely appropriate for Christmas this year. So I thought I’d share it with all of you.

“The Last Christmas “

 by Sixpence None the Richer

I feel your heart beating
Inside my own skin
And I think about Mary
In Bethlehem

That night in a stable
Our saviour was born
Yes, we have so much
To be thankful for

On the last Christmas
The last Christmas
The last Christmas
Without you

We’re choosing the colours
Preparing your room
For one day; Midsummer
The advent of you

Together we wait for
A heavenly gift
Is winter a wonder?
Enchanted that this is

The last Christmas
The last Christmas
The last Christmas
Without you

See the stars shining from above
Hear the Seraphim singing
Praise to the Giver of Life and Love
Maker of Beautiful things..

I feel you heart beating
Inside my own skin
And I think about Mary
In Bethlehem

When darkness was shattered
The dawn of God’s grace
And the journey began
To that first Easter day

On the this Christmas
The last Christmas
The last Christmas
The very last Christmas
The last Christmas (x 3)
Without you

If you listened closely you heard some big news!
