It's Christmas Time! Christ Will Have His Day!



Perhaps my current favorite Gospel Christmas song is "It's Christmas Time," popularly sung by Juanita Bynum and Myron Williams. It is a duet (maybe a solo) along with a vocal ensemble background. When the Gospel choir of a church I served sang this song, we had a talented father and stepdaughter singing duo helming the solos with some awesome improvisations, and it sounded great. "It's Christmas Time" was a bit difficult to transcribe, and I wished I could have added the brass, but it's a great song! My favorite line is: "Christ will have His day!" Here is the video. Lyrics are below:


Chorus 1

It’s Christmas time, time to let it go

It’s Christmas time, time to let love show

It’s Christmas time, time for us to say

It’s Christmas time, and Christ will have his day, it’s Christmas time


Verse 1

Time for family, friends so dear

Time for spreading joy with Christmas cheer

The time to say I love you can never be too much

To bless someone with sharing and a loving touch


Verse 2

No more worries, no more fears

No matter what your struggle is your joy is here

Its that time of year to leave the past behind

Its time to celebrate the Savior and let His glory shine


Bridge

Oh, Christmas day to me means more than just a holiday

To visit with my family and friends

Oh, what it really means to me is the day that Jesus came

Heavens precious gift to me


Chorus 2

It’s Christmas time, time to let it go

It’s Christmas time, time to let love show

It’s Christmas time, time for us to say

Leave it all behind, let his glory shine!


Chorus 3

It’s Christmas time, time to let it go

It’s Christmas time, time to let love show

It’s Christmas time, time for us to say

Leave it all behind, let his glory shine! It’s Christmas time!
