Echoes in Time (Gentry, Siregar & Swan) Stockings by the fireplace, the family at the door embrace, with the sounds of Christmas, a-playin' on the radio a-Gingerbread and mistletoe, hot cider in the fallin' snow with the Christmas lights a-shinin' as bright as the stars Twas the season for believin', there was singin' with Perry Como All the children were a -sleepin', sharin' dreams of Christmas morning Candles round the window sill, a-warmin' from the Christmas chill We hear the bells a-soundin', their echoes in time Take us back to Jimmy Stewart, where Bing was singin' Irving With Macy's parade and the kids a-smilin' on 34th street When love was alive, we'll never forget the voices that echo in time Shopping in department stores, a-dancin' on the high school floor A festive celebration from Heaven above Twas the season filled with reason, we hear singin' in Beach Boy harmony, ow-ohhhhh ohhhh, bring us back to Christmas Baby From Rockefeller to Times Square, from Boise to Delaware Through every generation, echoes in time

Sound the Bells (Gentry/Siregar) On a hilltop, high above the city Sits an empty church where time stands still Can you see the families all gathered Years have passed but echos sound Those memories, they will not be forgotten We're born again, we're still alive Lets sound the bells of Christmas Lets hear the church bells ring, hear them ring Sound the bells of Christmas I see them walking, walking up the hillside And I can see the Shepard standing on that Hill Sound the bells on Christmas morning From far away we hear the church bells ringing Oh they sound throughout the ages and reach beyond the stars And goes beyond the boundary of your heart Can you see the little children playing Hear them laugh, see them smile The snow is falling on this Christmas morning So full life, filled with love Times may change but one things left in common The church will live in Christ forever Sound the bells of Christmas Lets hear the church bells ring, hear them ring Sound the bells of Christmas I can see the Shepard standing on that hill Sound the bells on Christmas morning Far from away we hear the church bells ringing Oh they sound throughout the ages and reach beyond the stars and tolls beyond the boundaries of your heart Oh they toll throughout the ages and reaches in your heart and goes beyond the boundaries of the stars

Do You Know It's Christmas (Gentry/Siregar/Holder/E. Smith) Do you feel a crispness in the air? Autumn's past, yet something more is there Do you know it's Christmas? Can you feel it's Christmas? The joyful, loving season we all share Lights that line the street are dancing bright Stirring special feelings with the sight Do you know it's Christmas? Can you feel it's Christmas? The stars above are shining bright tonight. Oh, the winter's come to the meadow lands As we're gazing out the windows of our home Watching snowflakes fall in the starlit night Reflecting all God's love that shines inside. We cherish every moment on this special day. This time's a gift from God Let's share it with everyone along the way. Hear the church bells sound through the peaceful town Awakening God's Spirit in each soul. As the children play on this Christmas Day We are thankful for the joy we've come to know. Lights that line the street are dancing bright Stirring special feelings with the sight Do you know it's Christmas? Can you feel it's Christmas? The stars above are shining bright tonight. Do you know it's Christmas? Can you feel it's Christmas? The stars above are shining bright tonight.

Autumn Passing (Gentry/Siregar/Holder) Dried and wind torn, all that once was green Fallen ground-ward, remnants of their lives There's no returning for winter is nigh Autumn Passing Did I show undying love when paths had crossed my way Or did I lose that precious time that never comes again Now they're nowhere to be found All their dreams have turned to dust The autumn years pass, taken from our grasp A light snow's falling which covers barren ground It brings such beauty, new life to empty souls Time moves upon us, oh season how they change I didn't feel the crossing winds which turned the weather vane They're withdrawn unto themselves in shelter and unknowing Now they're nowhere to be found All their dreams have slipped away The autumn years pass, taken from our grasp Those who miss that still small voice surly slip away

Fallen Stars (Gentry) Where's the love I need to see? The fallen stars surrounding me An empty world of hopeless faith I feel the tears run down my face I look around, but no one's there I raise my voice, no one cares Oh fill the void inside my heart The rising of the fallen stars Take me home, ascend my soul The rising of this fallen star

Christmas Morning (Gentry/Siregar) The candles burn this night Illuminating how we're feeling His love is present with us As we worship, as we're singing Christmas carols fill our world with cheer Reaching out His Christ child message We wish this time for us would never end Yet settle down cause soon comes morning We close our eyes and know there's angels watching while we're sleeping When morning dawns it brings His gift of life which keeps on giving Memories bring us back to yesteryear Frozen moments we have treasured With visions focused on our families We gather round on Christmas morning It's Christmas time in our hearts Lord The lights are shining, they glow from deep within Your Son was born this day, we celebrate His birth The snowflakes fall each one reminds us of that special feeling of warmth We're nestled in with fires burning brightly in our hearts The children rush downstairs to wake us up They can sense this day has meaning We wish to feel this way all year round His gift of love on Christmas morning.

Alabaster (Gentry/Siregar) As the cold winds blow The Children laugh, a time forgotten Pathway through the clouds Daylight falls, visions fade Does He wipe away the tears a-fallin'? Can He take away the pain within us? Someday the skies will clear but I don't know when Searching through the night With dimming stars in place of Heaven We look to find our place Saddened eyes, ashen skies Throughout the ages Visions pass by Shadows in the light, whispers in the night Stars will align We're drawing nearer Listen inside Every little step, every little voice Echoes in time Waves against the shore We build our world in alabaster Resistance from the rains Worn away, what remains? Can He hear our voices calling? Sometimes I think we're all alone The love we held is gone, in hiding Can you hear the angels cry? Now we're left to wonder, why?
