Christmas Makes Me Cry - Matthew West

I think of loved ones who've passed away
And I pray they're resting in a better place
I think of memories of years gone by
And sometimes Christmas makes me cry

I think of soldiers across the sea
And sometimes I wonder why it's them instead of me
That for my freedom they give their lives
And sometimes Christmas makes me cry

Tears of thankfulness
Tears of hope
I cry tears of joy at Christmas
Because I know
There is peace on Earth
For every heart to find
And sometimes Christmas makes me cry

I think of family, I think of home
And say a prayer for those who spend this time alone
'Cause love can reach out into a silent night
And that's why Christmas makes me cry

Tears of thankfulness
Tears of hope
I cry tears of joy at Christmas
Because I know
There is peace on Earth
For every heart to find
And sometimes Christmas makes me cry

I think of Mary and a virgin birth
And I'm amazed by how much God thinks we are worth
That He would send His only son to die
And sometimes Christmas makes me cry

Tears of thankfulness
Tears of hope
I cry tears of joy at Christmas
Because I know
There is peace on Earth
For every heart to find
And sometimes Christmas makes me cry
Christmas makes me cry
