lifeblood: songs: lyrics: your holiday song


gather round girls and boys
it's time to make your joyful noise
some feel it in the feast after the fast
or the oil lamps everlasting
or the solstice in the wild
or the birth of a baby child

it's your holiday song
(it's your holiday song)
no one more true or right or wrong
(no one more right or wrong)
when our faith calls our name
someone else's does the same
hallelujah thank you

so gather round girls and boys
it's time to raise your holy noise
some feel it in the drum or the snare
or the silence of their prayer
or the church bells on the hill
or the harmony of goodwill

it's your holiday song
(it's your holiday song)
no one more true or right or wrong
(no one more right or wrong)
when our faith calls our name
someone else's does the same
hallelujah thank you

for every voice lifted in song
the sacred place we all belong
a chance to heal a broken world
with every voice in every song
of every boy and every girl

it's your holiday song
(it's your holiday song)
no one more true or right or wrong
(no one more right or wrong)
when our faith calls our name
someone else's does the same
hallelujah thank you
hallelujah thank you
thank you

it's your holiday song
(it's your holiday song)
it's your holiday song
(it's your holiday song)
it's your holiday song
