Even When Christmas Is Over, The Light Of The World Is Still Here

There are several songs written about Christmas day, but not many about the day after Christmas. So today, I went searching for something to inspire me about the ‘Day After Christmas’ and came upon this song by Matthew West.

I was really touched by these lines:

Even when Christmas is over, the Light of the world is still here.
Take down the lights and the star and the tree
But don’t let this world take your joy after Christmas
Take joy to the world and just sing

The hype abut Christmas Day may be over, but let’s not forget the reason for the season, Jesus Christ, who is here for eternity. Here are the full lyrics of the song. I hope it inspires you:

“Day After Christmas”

Here comes the letdown Christmas is over
Here comes the meltdown, there goes the cheer
But before we have a breakdown, let us remember
The light of the world is still here

Happy day after Christmas
And merry rest of the year
Even when Christmas is over
The light of the world is still here
The light of the world

Come January I’m ready for summer
The Super Bowl’s over and I’ll settle for spring
Sometimes we all need a change in the weather
But it won’t change the reason we sing

Happy day after Christmas
And merry rest of the year
Even when Christmas is over
The light of the world is still here
The light of the world
The light of the world
The light of the world

So take down the stockings, take back the sweaters
Take down the lights and the star and the tree
But don’t let this world take your joy after Christmas
Take joy to the world and just sing

Happy day after Christmas
And merry rest of the year
Even when Christmas is over
The light of the world is still here
