Sunday...

There's a little girl trembling on a cold December morn
Crying for momma's arms
At an orphanage just outside a little China town
Where the forgotten are
But half a world away I hang the stockings by the fire 
And dream about the day when I can finally call you mine

It's Christmas time again and you're not home
Your family is here and yet you're somewhere else alone
And so tonight I pray that God will come and hold you in his arms
And tell you from my heart I wish you Merry Christmas


As I hang the tinsel on the tree and watch the twinkling lights
I'm warmed by the fire's glow
Outside the children tumble in a wonderland of white
Make angels in the snow
But half a world away you try your best to fight the tears
And hope that Heaven's angels come to carry you here

It's Christmas time again but you're not home 
Your family is here and yet you're somewhere else alone
And so tonight I pray that God will come and hold you in His arms
And tell you from my heart I wish you Merry Christmas


Christmas is a time to celebrate the Holy Child
And we celebrate his perfect gift of love 
He came to earth to give his life 
And prepare a place for us
So we could have a home with him above

It's Christmas time again and now you're home 
Your family is here so you will never be alone
So tonight before you go to sleep, I'll hold you in my arms
And I'll tell you from my heart...
I wish you Merry Christmas!
~Third Day
