This Christmas is special, it comes right from my heart
Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me,
Be forever happy then
Beneath your Christmas Tree.
Let there be sunshine, let hope become part of your heart,
Let the war in Iraq end, and pray
For our soldiers to not fall apart.
Let us look for the snow outside our windows
And make snowman smile faces of glee
Take the sled and go riding
All the winter wonderland, to see
Christmas lights, Santa, in the store window
Stories come to life for you and me.
In our homes the trees are lit up so bright
And the miniature gardens are alight
That show a peaceful life that was,
The Christ Child looks up at us, He is our love we share,
When we open up our presents
What a wonder that is there.
We sing, let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me,
Do not let any hatred or bitterness grow a seed
Let us have a meal but say a prayer or two
In hopes that those without family
Can have a Christmas true.
We must be wise as the wise men long ago
As good as the shepherds of old.
Let us look for some angels, they are as priceless as gold
Let peace begin with me,
Even in a house without love
As long as Jesus is with me, it will be like His house above.
For I have peace within me,
My candle will always light my heart
It does not matter if there are those who cannot hear in the dark
Christmas is still here
And I will remember Jesus birth
For without Him, there would be no life on earth.
