TobyMac, “Christmas This Year”

TobyMac’s Christmas This Year is the Contemporary Christian singer-rapper’s 2010 Christmas offering. As early as now, Christian AC radio is, once again, offering TobyMac full support: Christmas This Year is picking up rapidly, with two additional radio pickups. In fairness, Christmas This Year is a fantastic offering, one of the best of this year’s crop of Christmas singles. A great acoustic guitar rhythm, solid sing-along vocals from TobyMac and guest vocalist Leigh Nash of Sixpence None the Richer, and lyrics that conjure up images of Christmas in the United States, make TobyMac’s Christmas This Year an almost irresistible proposition for Christmas AC.

CHRISTMAS THIS YEAR Lyrics

As fall rides off in the sunset
I sweep the snow from my doorstep
I just can’t help but stop and grin
Its like I’m ten years old again
And everywhere I go I can feel it
Some say it moves like a spirit

It falls on us once a year
Like it came on a midnight clear
It’s all love
The season is a gift
When love came down to let us live
Let’s open up and let our hearts embrace this moment

For Christmas this year
Gonna make a sound
Gonna make it loud
For Christmas this year
We’re gonna make some noise
Let the world rejoice
For Christmas this year
For Christmas
For Christmas this year

The laughter starts before the sunrise
I sneak downstairs at the sparklin’ lights
And oh what joy it brings to me
Our family around our Christmas tree
And I thank the Lord for His favor
As we sing the songs of the Savior
Our Savior

It’s all love
The season is a gift
When love came down to let us live
Let’s open up and let our hearts embrace this moment

For Christmas this year
Gonna make a sound
Gonna make it loud
For Christmas this year
We’re gonna make some noise
Let the world rejoice
For Christmas this year
For Christmas
For Christmas this year

Holy Holy holy
God is coming near
Unto us a Savior born
On a midnight clear

Holy Holy holy
God is coming near
Unto us a savior born
On a midnight clear
Oh

For Christmas this year
Gonna make a sound
Gonna make it loud
For Christmas this year
We’re gonna make some noise
Let the world rejoice
For Christmas this year
For Christmas
For Christmas this year

For Christmas this year
Gonna make a sound
Gonna make it loud
For Christmas this year
We’re gonna make some noise
Let the world rejoice
For Christmas this year
For Christmas
For Christmas this year

Holy Holy holy
God is coming near
Unto us a savior born
On a midnight clear
