I've been dreaming of a white Christmas
But I fear this white has blinded me instead
I've been scheming of a wild winter
The one where you take me by the hand

I'm wrapped up in fairy tales
In choruses of Christmas Carols
My skin is cold
My heart it fears
Of Christmas past
And Christmas near
But He reminds me that He's still here

I wish I could carry on like Mother did back then
Push away every fear every doubt
The Savior of this broken world He came to spare me
But this snowfall makes me heavy with defeat

I'm tied up in fantasies
All my thoughts and vivid dreams
My blood is cold
My flesh is weak
Waiting for
The Son to shake
Shake this mind
Shake these fears
Of Christmas past
And Christmas near
Let me return
To childhood games
Those childhood names
And childhood faith
Then remind me You don't forsake

O come let us adore Him
