LISTEN: “Come into My Heart” by David Maloney, on A Christmas Album by Reilly & Maloney (1984; reissued 2012)

Snow is falling, now recalling
Winter’s icy face
North wind’s humming, Christ is coming
Into this worldly place

Will there be no room for him?
He who travels far
I will light my soul tonight
Come into my heart

All the children of the world
Know the Prince of Peace
In their hearts there is the hope
That every war shall cease

See the wisdom of the ages shining
In the young Child’s eyes
Behold the King and all he brings
The precious gift of life

Christmas bells and Santa’s elves
Fill the world with joy
Angel wings and shiny things
For every girl and boy

Around the Christmas tree we gather singing
Carols by the fire
Voices ringing, the Savior’s bringing
The gift of mercy mild

Snow is falling, now recalling
Winter’s icy face
North wind’s humming, Christ is coming
Into this worldly place

Will there be no room for him?
He who travels far
I will light my soul tonight
Come into my heart
