There are many things to enjoy on First Call's Beyond December, but I really like this song. Christmas has come and gone this year, but it doesn't mean for the believer that she can just pack up the manger scene and forget about the meaning of Immanuel until sometime late next year.
From "After December Slips Away"
(Lowell Alexander/Bonnie Keen)
The season comes but once a year
A gift of precious wonder
For all who hold it dear
But past the sights and coloured lights
Lord, far beyond DecemberI 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
