This winter's night
Stars shine like silver bells
This winter's night
The mistletoe won't kiss and tell
Snowflakes fall like frosting
And icing on the street
Strangers look like neighbors
With every smile that you meet

But here in my arms I'll keep you warm
And hold you tight
On this winter's night
(We'll look back on the year)
On this winter's night
(We'll count our blessings)
On this Winter's night
We will remember

This winter's night
Icicle lights will trim the tree
This winter's night
Wrap a present or two for you and me
Tuck our children into bed
And dream the night away
Til' the sun dawns in the morning
With the joy of Christmas day

But here in my arms I'll keep you warm
And hold you tight
On this winter's night
(We'll look back on the year)
On this winter's night
(We'll count our blessings)
On this Winter's night
We will remember

The wisemen heard the angels sing
Hymn-like soft and low
The king became a child a long long time ago
And the child became a king
So the whole wide world will know
What christmas really is

    This song is so relaxing and beautiful. You guys are totally right! It's all about Jesus. I absolutely love this song! I agree thank you so much for spreading the true message! Why everyone thinks its all about presents, and Santa Claus, I have no idea. Once again, thank you all for spreading the true meaning of Christmas!

    On this winter's night is about the birth of jesus christ our savior. As a king he came down to earth and was born of a virgin. He grew up and died on the cross for our sins. It's the birth of our lord jesus christ. This is what christmas is really about!
