Christmas Song for All Year 'Round
Words and Music by Randy Stonehill
on Welcome to Paradise by Randy Stonehill
Copyright 1976 King of Hearts Publishing


Intro: "Coming soon!"
   D    D/C# D/B D/A D/F#              G          A      Asus4 A A2
I wonder if this Christmas, they'll begin to understand
    G                A           G                 D   D2 D
The Jesus that they celebrate is much more than a man
        D      D/C#  D/B D/A D/G   D/F#    G          A   Asus4 A A2
But the way the world is  I  don't see how people can deny
   G            A               G               D   D2 D
The only way to save us was for Jesus Christ to die

(Chorus)  
      A          Asus4  A   Asus4 A  Asus4 A   G                D  D2 D
And I know, that if     St. Nich -o -las   was here he would agree
     A    Asus4 A   Asus4    A       G              D
That Jesus gave the greatest gift of all to you and me
     D              D/C#            G                A    Asus4 A Asus4
They led him to the slaughter on  a hill called Calvary (**ON SECOND TIME GO TO END**)   
    D              G               A                 D2
And mankind was forgiven when they nailed him to the tree
    D       D/C# D/B D/A D/F#              G                 A   Asus4 A A2
But most of all  the children, they're the ones I hope will learn
     G            A               G           D  D2 D
That Jesus is our Savior and he's going to return
      D       D/C# D/B  D/A D/G D/F#      G                   A   Asus4 A A2
And Christmas is - n't just  a  day, and all days aren't the same
   G            A                       G                   D   D2 D
Perhaps they'll think about the word and see it spells his name

(Final chorus)
    G               D   D2 D G               D   D2 D
And mankind was forgiven,    mankind was forgiven
G               D   D2 D           G          A         D2
We were all forgiven     when they nailed him to the tree
   Dsus2   Asus4/C#  Asus4/B   Dsus2/A  
So mer   -   ry      Christ  -  mas, 
Dsus2   Asus4/C#  Asus4/B   Dsus2/A  
Mer   -   ry      Christ  -  mas, 
Dsus2   Asus4/C#  Asus4/B   Dsus2/A  D      G    A2
Mer   -   ry      Christ  -  mas      Oooh, oooh
   D    D/C# D/B  D/A   D/F#            G           A2  
I wonder if  this Christmas, they'll begin to understand
