One small child in a land of a thousand.
One small dream of a savior tonight.
One small hand reaching out to the starlight.
One small savior of life. Ooh.

One king bringing his gold and riches.
One king ruling and army of might.
One king kneeling with incense and candlelight.
One king bringing us life. Ooh.

See Him lying, a cradle beneath Him.
See Him smiling in the stall.
See His mother praising the Father.
See His tiny eyelids fall.
See the shepherds kneeling before Him.
See the kings on bended knee.
See the mother praising the Father.
See the blessed infant sleep.

One small child in a land of a thousand.
One small dream of a savior tonight.
One small hand reaching out to the starlight.
One small savior of life.

    This is my favorite song, i am a Mormon and I am trying to play this song in my violin. This song is uplifting and it is good for the youth of these latter days. One small child to me is a song of love and encourage meant. To me this song show part of the true meaning of Christmas. We are suppose to love and care for one another. Like it says in the bible " love one another as I have loved you, you are my disciples if you have loved one to another. This just leaves me with a feeling of peace and calmness. All Christian songs are well just wonderful! I am a member of The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and I know that songs like this one here will leave every one with a peaceful and knowing feeling that this song is true. It has the meaning of Christmas in it's lyrics! It is the up most wonderful song that I have ever heard. The only other composer of music that has touched me like this is Sister Lindsey Stirling. I ask everyone of you to remember the true meaning of Christmas and I wish all of you Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
