Christmas truly is the most beautiful period of the year. For some people, it’s the only time they get to spend with their family and friends. And as much as it sparks joy and happiness, it also brings a sense of nostalgia and sadness for those we lost.
One of the best musicians ever, spectacular Neil Diamond, wrote a touching song about those whose presence we miss dearly during the holidays. It is a very special tribute which millions of people fell for.
The lyrics of the song Christmas Prayers, which was part of his album Acoustic Christmas, speak that the greatest gift there is are our loved ones and how those who left this world are always in our Christmas prayers and looking down on us smiling.
“The loved ones far and near
Will be forever there
It’s Christmas up in Heaven too
With love beyond compare.”
The moment the music starts, we see old photos in the background, showing the good old times, when the whole family was complete and shared the holiday joy.
This song tugs at the heartstrings and has the power to overcome everyone with emotions.
“Thank you Neil. Heard this song when I needed it the most,” one person wrote. If you haven’t heard it already, press play and enjoy. This truly is one of the best Christmas songs I have ever heard.
