Matthew West, “A Christmas to Believe In”

Contemporary Christian singer-songwriter Matthew West has earned several Christmas hits over the years, including “Christmas Makes Me Cry” (with Mandisa), “Give This Christmas Away” (with Amy Grant), and “One Last Christmas.” This 2014, he’s released “A Christmas to Believe In,” a moving song that recalls many of the fond memories of Christmas, only to remind us of how we can help make Christmas a memorable one for the less fortunate.

Matthew West

It’s a house full of noise ‘cause the family’s all in town
It’s an attic full of toys so the kids won’t find out
The smell of cookies in the oven, it’s a slow dance in the kitchen
Oh, ain’t it somethin’, it’s a Christmas to believe in

It’s in the snow making angels, it’s a mistletoe kiss
It’s an empty seat at the table to remember who we miss
It’s a candle light carol, it’s a grateful choir singin’
Oh Hark! The Herald, it’s a Christmas to believe in

More than just a Merry Christmas
I’m wishing you a Christmas to believe in
Where the moments turn to memories
And years from now you’ll close your eyes and see them
More than just another busy season
I’m wishing you a Christmas to believe in

It’s a blanket by the fire watching all our favorite movies
“It’s A Wonderful Life” in black and white just like it should be
It’s Salvation Army bells, hear them ringing to remind us
There’s a world that needs our help, may compassion come and find us

Hallelujah, we believe in Christmas

It’s grandpa’s Bible opened up to Luke Chapter 2
It’s the greatest gift of love being born for me and you
It’s a heart returning home to the One who is the reason
Every Christmas is a Christmas to believe in
May your Christmas be a Christmas to believe in
