대중적인 팝 스타일로 큰 사랑을 받고 있는 Steven Curtis Chapman이 가장 왕성한 활동을 보이던 시기에  발표한 [The Music of Christmas, 1995]은 전체적으로 편안하고 따뜻하면서도 투명한 느낌이 가득한, 매우 멋진 크리스마스 음반으로 기억되는데요, 이후로 [All I Really Want for Christmas, 2005] 그리고 [Joy, 2012] 두 장의 크리스마스 앨범을 더 발표하게 됩니다.  



In a one bedroom apartment On the humble side of town There stands a little Christmas tree It looks a lot like Charlie Brown's 


And underneath there's one little gift for him And one little gift for her


After six months on the new job They're still barely getting by So in the way of decorations There's nothing there to catch your eye


But both of them would be the first to say We're together, we're gonna have the merriest Christmas anyway


'Cause Christmas is all in the heart That's where the feeling starts And like a fire inside, it touches every part Christmas is all in the heart


And even if no white snow falls Well, that's all right because The joy can still be found, wherever you are Christmas is all, all in the heart


Two little blond haired boys with big dreams Tried to sleep but sleep wouldn't come And we'd be tearing into presents Long before the break of dawn


With mom and dad and cameras making sure We'd never forget that day, no, no, no


Now I'm the one who's taking pictures In the middle of the night Of my own little dreamers That just can't wait until daylight


And in my sleepy eyes the spark still glows Well, I guess there's just some things a kid never outgrows


'Cause Christmas is all in the heart That's where the feeling starts And like a fire inside, it touches every part Christmas is all in the heart


And even if no white snow falls Well, that's all right because The joy can still be found, wherever you are Christmas is all, all in the heart


No, it's not in the snow that may or may not fall And it's not in the gifts around the tree It's in the love Heaven gave, that night our Savior came And that same love can still be found wherever you are


'Cause Christmas is all in the heart And the joy can still be found, wherever you are 'Cause Christmas is all, all in the heart It's all in the heart
