I know that Carrol Robertson recorded this on his Christmas album.
Hope that helps a little.

When I was but a youngster, Christmas meant one thing,
That I'd be getting lots of toys that day.

I learned a whole lot diff'rent when Mother sat me down
And taught me to spell Christmas this way:

"C" is for the Christ Child born upon this day;
"H" for herald angels in the night.
"R" means our Redeemer;
"I" means Israel;
"S" is for the star that shone so bright.
"T" is for the tree wise men,
They who travelled far.
"M" is for the manger where He lay.
"A" is for all He stands for;
"S" means shepherds came,
And that's why there's a Christmas Day.

I found this while doing a Google search for the song ,CHRISTMAS, on a site a church in Littleton Colorado had their newsletter? posted. I really liked the wording and decided to post it. I have added the pastor's name at the bottom like it was on the site. Hope you enjoy this also.

"May the God of hope fill you with all the joy and peace in believing so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope"  Romans 15:13


C is for the Christ Child
     a child of hope and light

H is for the Heavens that were
    bright that holy night

R is for the Radiance
    of the star that led the way

I is for the lowly Inn
    where the Infant Jesus lay

S is for the Shepherds
    who beheld the Christmas star

T is for the Tidings
    the angels told afar

M is for the Magi
    with their gifts of myrrh and gold

A is for the Angels
    who were awesome to behold

S is for the Savior
    who was born to save all men

And together this spells CHRISTMAS
    which we celebrate again.

This season of joy and peace is God's gift to us in
Christ Jesus our Lord. May you be blessed with these gifts.

Rev Jeffrey L Kane
