I’M COMIN HOME FOR CHRISTMAS, by Bill Pfordresher

sung by Joe Puerta of AMBROSIA fame.

I’m Comin’ Home For Christmas (Pfordresher)

I remember finding you at Christmas

Your eyes as bright as tinsel on the tree

You and I were lonely until Christmas

Then love found you for me

Now I’m comin’ home for Christmas

For Christmas

I’m comin’ home
 I’m comin’ home for Christmas

For Christmas I’m comin’ home.

I remember wind and ice and snow

Our love so warm we never felt the cold

Then came a call that sent me far away

But now it’s Christmas day.

And I’m comin’ home for Christmas

For Christmas

I’m comin’ home 
I’m comin’ home for Christmas

For Christmas I’m comin’ home

To you

Angels on high

Please tell me why 
Ooooh the stars are so bright

Oh Angels on high

Can I ask you to try?

To make every day Christmas night

Then I’ll be home for Christmas

For Christmas I’m comin’ home 
I’m comin’ home for Christmas

For Christmas I’m comin’ home

To you

And IN THE BLEAK MIDWINTER sung by the Gloucester Cathedral Choir

In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, long ago.

Our God, Heaven cannot hold Him, nor earth sustain;
Heaven and earth shall flee away when He comes to reign.
In the bleak midwinter a stable place sufficed
The Lord God Almighty, Jesus Christ.

Enough for Him, whom cherubim, worship night and day,
Breastful of milk, and a mangerful of hay;
Enough for Him, whom angels fall before,
The ox and ass and camel which adore.

Angels and archangels may have gathered there,
Cherubim and seraphim thronged the air;
But His mother only, in her maiden bliss,
Worshipped the beloved with a kiss.

What can I give Him, poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
If I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;
Yet what I can I give Him: give my heart.

Wishing you a peaceful, healthy New Year full of song.

One thought on “Christmas Songs–Sacred and Secular

  1. Dear Bethie,

    Thanks, so much, for posting this song. We have had so much fun watching it grow and be embraced by many people. One of my fondest memories was walking through a shopping mall in Milwaukee, where the song was getting lots of airplay and hearing two girls singing the song as they did their Christmas shopping. That really is what Christmas is all about, sharing the birth of our Lord.

    ……Happiest of New Years to all of the Boomer Highway family!!!!!

    Bill
