On a hill long ago, on a cold winter's night
In a land far away three kings saw a light
And from heaven it shone like God's, God's own crown
And it guided three kings into Bethlehem town
Oh they came bearing gifts, and so said each one
Let's call this day Christmas from this moment on
We'll be calling it Christmas in honor of him
The child in the manger, our savior and king
chorus:
We've been calling it Christmas, keeping the faith
Knowing the reason we're saving the day
We've been calling it Christmas down through the years
Spreading joy to the world when Christmas is here
Oh a simple belief was the start of it all
A small child asleep on a bed made of straw
At the back of an inn where sheperds and kings
First felt the joy that this moment would bring
(repeat chorus)
(repeat chorus)
We've been calling it Christmas down through the years
Spreading joy to the world when Christmas is here
Spreading joy to the world when Christmas is here
Spreading joy to the world when Christmas is here
