Does Christmas Makes You Cry?

Sometimes Christmas makes us cry. I'd like to share this video and lyrics - a touching song this Christmas season:



"Christmas Makes Me Cry (Madisa duet with Matthew West)"
Lyrics by Mandisa

(Mandisa)
I think of loved ones who’ve passed away
And I pray they’re resting in a better place
I think of memories of years gone by
And sometimes Christmas makes me cry

(Matt)
I think of soldiers across the sea
Sometimes I wonder why it’s them instead of me
That for my freedom they give their lives
And sometimes Christmas makes me cry

(Both)
Tears of thankfulness, tears of hope
I cry tears of joy at Christmas because I know
There is peace on earth for every heart to find
And sometimes Christmas makes me cry

(Mandisa)
I think of family, I think of home
I say a prayer for those who spend this time alone
(Matt)
‘Cause love can reach out into a silent night
(Both)
And that’s why Christmas makes me cry

(Both)
Tears of thankfulness, tears of hope
I cry tears of joy at Christmas because I know
There is peace on earth for every heart to find
And sometimes Christmas makes me cry

(Mandisa)
I think of Mary and a virgin birth
And I’m amazed by how much God thinks we are worth
That he would send his only son to die
And sometimes Christmas makes me cry

(Both)
Tears of thankfulness, tears of hope
I cry tears of joy at Christmas because I know
There is peace on earth for every heart to find
And sometimes Christmas makes me
Christmas makes me cry
Christmas makes me…cry
