Relient K – Let It Snow, Let It Reindeer (get it?)

December 18, 2012

Relient K first released a Christmas cd titled Deck The Halls, Bruise Your Head in 2006 — then turned right around re-released it in 07 with seven additional songs (Let It Snow Baby, Let It Reindeer).
It was re-re-released in 08 via itunes (only) with the more songs.
Despite all that — it’s very good (especially theĀ originalsĀ – two of which I’ll feature tonight).
First, I Celebrate The Day.
I nearly decided to feature this song on new year’s eve as that day is mentioned in an eloquent and brutally honest lyric: “Because here is where You’re finding me, in the exact same place as New Year’s eve.
And from a lack of my persistency, we’re less than half as close as I want to be.” Amen to that (story of my life).

It’s followed by Merry Christmas Here’s To Many More.

I Celebrate The Day

And with this Christmas wish is missed
The point I could convey
If only I could find the words to say to let You know how much You’ve touched my life
Because here is where You’re finding me, in the exact same place as New Year’s eve
And from a lack of my persistency
We’re less than half as close as I want to be

And the first time
That You opened Your eyes did You realize that You would be my Savior
And the first breath that left Your lips
Did You know that it would change this world forever

And so this Christmas I’ll compare the things I felt in prior years
To what this midnight made so clear
That You have come to meet me here

To look back and think that
This baby would one day save me
In the hope that what You did
That you were born so I might [ really ]live
To look back and think that
This baby would one day save me

And I, I celebrate the day
That You were born to die
So I could one day pray for You to save my life

Merry Christmas Here’s To Many More

I made it through the year and I did not even collapse
Gotta say, “Thank God, for that”
I’m torn between what keeps me whole and what tears me in half
I’ll fall apart or stay intact

With tired eyes I stumble back to bed
I need to realize my sorry life’s not hanging by a thread
At least not yet

So look at me now
Its finally Christmas and I’m home
Head indoors, to get out of this weather
And I don’t know how
But the closest friends I’ve ever known are all inside
Singing together
Singing merry Christmas, here’s to many more

It always hurt to be all by myself this time of year
A cold and lonely Christmas eve
And living out my days alone
Well that had been my deepest fear
But you promised you won’t leave

I look towards the east and see a star
Jesus Christ, has blessed my life to know just who you are
You are my hope

So look at me now
Its finally Christmas and I’m home
Head indoors, to get out of this weather
And I don’t know how
But the closest friends I’ve ever known are all inside
Singing together
Singing merry Christmas, here’s to many more

Deck the halls with mistletoe
May all your heavy burdens go
Up the chimney in a cloud of smoke
The fire’s burning bright
Strike up the band and play the tune
Cause Christmas will be here and soon
You’ll hear our song in every room
This merry Christmas night

Singing merry Christmas, here’s to many more
