TSMSS - The Day AFTER Christmas!

I just stumbled across this song by Matthew West last week. I love that he's put these thoughts into a song. And how perfect that TSMSS falls on the 26th!

Since he apparently just sings this at concerts and it's not on a CD, there weren't any lyrics, so I wrote them down the best that I could hear them!

Lyrics and Music by Matthew West

Here comes the letdown
Christmas is over
Here comes the meltdown
There goes the cheer
But before we have a breakdown
Let us remember
The Light of the world is still here.

So Happy Day after Christmas
And Merry Rest of the Year
'Cause even when Christmas is over
The Light of the world is still here.

Come January
I'm ready for summer
The Super Bowl's over
And I'm ready for spring
Yeah, sometimes we all need
A change in the weather
But it won't change the reason we sing

Happy Day after Christmas
Merry Rest of the Year
'Cause even when Christmas is over
The Light of the world is still here.

So take down the stockings
Take back the sweaters
Take down the lights
And the star and the tree
But don't let this world take
Your joy after Christmas
Take joy to the world as you sing

Happy Day after Christmas
Merry Rest of the Year
'Cause even when Christmas is over
The Light of the world is still here.

Happy Day After Christmas to you!!

What a great song! This is the first time I've heard it. The interruptions were funny, too!

Yesterday at church someone said they were sad because Christmas was almost over. I told her that thanks to Easter, Christmas never has to end. I wish I could have shared this song.

Linda, that is great. I've never heard it either, but it sure does describe what the day after Christmas feels like sometimes. Thank you for sharing and may you have a blessed day after Christmas.

Oh, I'm so glad you found this song for us. I've never heard it but it is delightful.

Blessings Linda...and happy day after Christmas...Praise God that His light is still here!!! I think this was impromtu... he really has a great message here!!! That was so kind of you to write out the words, sometimes at concerts or videos of them, it's hard to hear!

A bit of Christmas humor and quite the delight! Thanks for finding it and sharing with us! May you still enJOY the day after Christmas & the rest of the year...maybe in the silence(from Lisa Notes)we will see the Light of the world in peace & joy! This was a fun one!

Blessings Linda - know what is really sad is the fact people lose the joy of Jesus when Christmas is over. It doesn't have to be that way - we are to REJOICE in Him daily and find every reason to share His love with everyone in our lives. Phil. 4:4-9

Praying we can all continue to sing His praises all year round - thanking God that He is our RISEN SAVIOR not just a babe in a manger who changed things for a season but for LIFE and ETERNITY!

Love in Christ,
