ON A CHRISTMAS NIGHT  
 


I was awakened on a Christmas night
Somebody shaking me and shining a light
“Wake up the winter is here
And snow is falling on the ground”

Out of the window ‘twas a magic sight
And for a little boy it was a magic night
My friends were playing outside
And snow was tumbling on the ground

And we saw a thousand candles in the night
Moving to the church upon the hill
When the people saw us they said “come inside”
And the song that night they sing it still

We are here to celebrate the birth of a child
Who came to the world
We are here to celebrate the life of a child
Who came to the world
We are here to celebrate the birth of a child
Who came to the world
We are here to celebrate the life of a child
Who came to the world on this night
We are here to celebrate the birth of a child
Who came to the world
We are here to celebrate the life of a child
Who came to the world, to the world
We are here to celebrate the birth of a child
Who came to the world
We are here to celebrate the life of a child
Who gave to the world
His love

I was awakened on a Christmas night...
