New Beginnings at Christmas

Written By: Shawn Thies

New Beginnings at Christmas

Words and Music by
Shawn Thies

Autumn leaves are falling
They make no sound
Nature’s hand is weaving
A blanket for the ground

This quiet hibernation
Is making way for brand new life
The seeds of inspiration
Will fill my heart with joy- this Christmas time

I look forward to the rain
And stormy winter nights
Snowfall I will hope for
From this winter sky

As I look through my window
I see a star that’s shining bright
In the stillness of the darkness
A New Beginning’s come- this Christmas night

Now the earth is quiet
Her choir’s singing ‘Silent Night’
She say’s, “ The time is coming…
And you’ll see, we’ll have peace on earth.”

This quiet hibernation
Is making way for brand new life
Through the seeds of inspiration
A New Beginning’s come-
To fill my heart with joy
A New Beginning’s come-this Christmas time

The Greatest Gift

Written By: Shawn Thies

The Greatest Gift
Words and Music by
Shawn Thies

The air is cold
Strings of lights, mistletoe
Carolers spreading cheer
This holiday celebration comes one time a year
Family and friends far and near
They are the reason
We all gather here

Don’t get caught in the pressure of society
This time of the year
The Greatest Gift to be considered
Is right within your heart…
Give your heart this Christmas time

Children in anticipation they make
A list of their favorite things
Patiently waiting for the night
When St Nicholas will appear
Teach our children so they’ll understand
They are the reason
We all gather here

Spread the word out to every little girl and boy
Throughout the world
The Greatest Gift they can discover
Is right within their heart…
So find your heart this Christmas time

Spread the word out to every little girl and boy
Throughout the world
The Greatest Gift to be considered
Is right within your heart…
So find your gift- it’s in your heart
This Christmas time
