The snow is softly falling
The night is cold and grey
The forests fields and mountains
Await the coming day
One star outshines the others
So bright as if to say
This is a special morning
A child was born on christmas day.

Long ago, far away
In a stable bare
Look and see, he sleeps so peacefully
As if the cold of night were never there
Bless all the little children
Whenever they may lay
Somewhere a child is sleeping
A child was born on christmas day.

So we might love each other
In peace and honor's way
Somewhere a child is sleeping
A child was born on christmas day
To save the world from sadness
His troubled life he gave
To offer hope and gladness
Our weary souls to save
To comfort us in trouble
To guide us ev'ryday
One hope for life eternal
A child was born on christmas day

Long ago, far away
In a stable bare
Look and see he sleeps so peacefully
As if the cold of night were never there
Bless all the little children
Where ever they may lay
Somewhere a child is sleeping
A child was born on christmas day.
So we might love each other
In peace and honor's way
Somewhere a child is sleeping
A child was born on christmas day.
