After December Slips Away

The season comes but once a year 
A gift of precious wonder 
For all who hold it dear 
But past the sights 
And colored lights 
Lord, far beyond December 
I will remember 

After the carols fade away 
After the Yule fire dies down 
When there are no longer dreams to open and see 
Because You are hope and joy and peace 
Because You're the only gift I need 
In my heart the season will remain 
After December Slips Away 

Years ago beneath a tree 
Fell the drops of crimson 
That set the faithful free 
The gift was life sent in love 
Lord, far beyond December 
I will remember 

After the carols fade away
After the Yule fire dies down
When there are no longer dreams to open and see 
Because You are hope and joy and peace 
Because You're the only gift I need 
In my heart the season will remain 
After December Slips Away 

No matter how bright the glitter shines 
No matter how many hopes come true 
I know that all I have 
Begins and ends with You 

After the carols fade away 
After the Yule fire dies down 
When there are no longer dreams to open and see 
Because You are hope and joy and peace 
Because You're the only gift I need 
In my heart the season will remain 
After December Slips Away 
In my heart the season will remain
After December Slips Away
