I've had my first Chrisstmas in Heaven,
A glorious, wonderful day
I stood with Saints of the ages,
Who found Christ the Truth and the Way.
I sang with the Heavenly choir;
Just think! I, who longed so to sing.
And, oh, what celestial music
We brought to our Savior and Kingl
We sang the glad songs of redemption,
How Jesus to Bethlehem came,
And how they had called his name, Jesus,
That all might be saved through his name.
We sang once again with the angels,
The song that they sang that blest morn,
When shepherds first heard the glad story
That Jesus, the Savior, was born.
You know how I always loved Christmas;
It seemed such a wonderful day,
With all my loved ones aroound me,
The children so happy and gay.
Yes, now I can see why I loved it,
And, oh, what a joy it will be
When youy and my loved ones are with me
To share in the glories I see.
So, dear ones on Earth, there's my greeting.
Look up till the day dawn appears,
And, oh, what a Christmas awaits us
Beyond all our partings and tears.
