I took my tree down to the shore
The garland, and the silver star
To find my peace, and grieve no more
To heal this place inside my heart

On every branch I laid some bread
And hungry birds filled up the sky
They rang thy bells around my head
They sang my spirit back to life

One tiny child can change the world
One shining light can show the way
For all my tears, for what I've lost
There's still my joy
There's still my joy
For Christmas day

The snow comes down on empty sand
There's tinsel moonlight on the waves
My soul was lost, but here I am
So this must be amazing grace

One tiny child can change the world
One shining light can show the way
Beyond my tears for what I've lost
There's still my joy
There's still my joy
For Christmas day
There's still my joy for Christmas day

    For those of us still reeling in the wake of the flooding that hurricane irene caused, our church, the schoharie united presbyterian church, offered the opportunity for our community to gather as one to celebrate a "blue christmas" service. Our state assemblyman, peter lopez, sang this song as a healing reminder of the redemption of the spirit. Thank you, melissa, for these amazing words.
