Here are the Lyrics for the popular Christmas song, Christmas in Our Hearts by Jose Mari Chan.


Whenever I see girls and boys

Selling lanterns in the streets

I remember the Child

In the manger as He sleeps

Whenever there are people

Giving gifts exchanging cards

I believe that Christmas

Is truly in their hearts

Let’s light our christmas trees

For a bright tomorrow

Where nations are at peace

And all are one in God.


Let’s sing ‘Merry Christmas

And a happy holiday’

This season, may we never forget

The love we have for Jesus

Let Him be the One to guide us

As another new year stars

And may the spirit of christmas

Be always in our hearts

In every prayer and every song

The community unites

Celebrating the birth

Of our Saviour Jesus Christ

Let love, like that starlight

On that first Christmas morn

Lead us back to the manger

Where Christ the Child was born

So come let us rejoice

Come and sing the Christmas carol

With one big joyful voice

Proclaim the name of the Lord.
