The Day After Christmas

December 26, 2019

In The Rivers of Life Clergy Band (have you booked us to come to your place yet?), we do a song written by Matthew West. It’s become a favorite —-

Here comes the letdown, Christmas is over
Here comes the meltdown, there goes the cheer
But before we have a breakdown, let us remember
The light of the world is still here

CHORUS Happy day after Christmas
Merry rest of the year
Even when Christmas is over
The light of the world is still here

Come January, I’m ready for summer
The Super Bowl’s over, I’ll settle for spring
Sometimes we all need a change in the weather
But it won’t change the reason we sing CHORUS

So take down the stockings, take back the sweaters
Take down the lights and the star and the tree
But don’t let this world take your joy after Christmas
Take joy to the world and just sing CHORUS

— Don’t you love that? So do I.

Apply as needed, and I’ll see you back here tomorrow.
