THIS CHRISTMAS BLISS Words and Music by Kenneth Francis Flahertyand Richard Melvin Brown
Verse 1 Suggested Tempo = 111 BPM
A Amaj7 Em9 A7 D
It’s Christmas Eve and once again our anxious hearts await
C#m F#7 C#m7b5 F#7 Bm E7
The birth of morning light to shine upon the Son,
D A E7 A C#m Em9 D
Who’s come to fill our hearts with love and make our lives live great,
Bm7 E7 A Gsus2 Esus A
With relief from sin -- God’s gift -- the chosen one.
Verse 2
A Amaj7 Em9 A7 D
A fireplace with flicking flames will warm our toes tonight
C#m F#7 C#m7b5 F#7 Bm E7
A hearth with lesser heat than in our hearts.
D A E7 A C#m Em9 D
Our love will warm us up again to set our spirit right
Bm7 E7 A Gsus2 Esus A
As the silence calms the wind for this new start.
Chorus
E7 D A C#m D
Before we fall asleep tonight and drift into a dream,
Dmaj7 A6 Bm E7
Upon our cheeks so rosy lay a kiss;
E7 D A C#m D
So when we awake we’ll find the love more loving than it seems,
Dmaj7 C#m Bm E7 A Asus A
And we’ll know we will not miss this Christmas bliss.
Verse 3
A Amaj7 Em9 A7 D
The morning Sun to soon reveal the secret gifts to bear
C#m F#7 C#m7b5 F#7 Bm E7
With wonder what was left under the tree
D A E7 A C#m Em9 D
The scent of pine smells so divine like wine for us to share
Bm7 E7 A Gsus2 Esus A
Fills the nose and the soul -- God’s breath for you and me.
Verse 4
A Amaj7 Em9 A7 D
We will open our presents, and open our hearts, and open our minds real wide
C#m F#7 C#m7b5 F#7 Bm E7
And we’ll open our arms just the same for this embrace
D A E7 A C#m Em9 D
And our spirits will join hand in hand and side by side
Bm7 E7 A Gsus2 Esus A
Watch the smile from God shine His light on a new child’s face.
