From the Braintrust: ‘Thank You’ by Pentatonix a Perfect Way to Cap off 2020

Abbotsford (OnFocus) – Holiday songs make their appearance each year, and the presence of Christmas carols brings joy.  Christmas carols are more than just the music, it’s the lyrics in Christmas songs that carry powerful messages.

The Braintrust identifies one song whose lyrics share a special message, and we all can take comfort in its message.

Thank You, by Pentatonix

Thank you for your smile
It’s warmer than the fire
Your gentle laughter
Is sweeter than a choir
I can’t believe
This year you’ve got me through
The least I can do
Is thank you

Lyrics: Thank You, by Pentatonix

Oh, Lord, it’s been a year
With little joys and little fears
It’s finally here, Christmas day
My love, I need some hope
A little faith, a hand to hold
It’s awfully cold, Christmas day
Watch the snow fall down like me sometimes
But you pick me up and then pick me up again
Like the winter leaves I can’t survive
Without your light

</div>

Thank you for your smile
It’s warmer than the fire
Your gentle laughter
Is sweeter than a choir
I’ll never know
The right words to choose
So all I can say
Is thank you
We fell into the snow
And talked about growing old
So here’s to a hundrеd more Christmas days
This house will be our homе
And my heart will be your own
As the candles glow, Christmas day
Watch the snow fall down like you sometimes
But I’ll pick you up and then pick you up again
Like our winter tree on Christmas night
It needs some light
Thank you for your smile
It’s warmer than the fire
Your gentle laughter
Is sweeter than a choir
I’ll never know
The right words to choose
So all I can say
Is thank you
Thank you
Spent all this time hanging lights
But I’m just blinded by your eyes
I look outside, the ground is white
But you and I should probably stay inside
Thank you for your smile
It’s warmer than the fire
Your gentle laughter
Is sweeter than a choir
I can’t believe
This year you’ve got me through
The least I can do
Is thank you
Thank you, Pentatonix, for the words and the music.
