One Christmas Eve Lyrics
He was a loving father Gentle master of his home But all alone against their love for God No Savior of his own
Unmoved and softly cynical Of those he thought naive God come to earth? A virgin birth? No, how could anybody believe?
His Christmas evening solitaire Beside the fire's glow. Out of the window tiny sparrows In the spell of a chilling snow. And moved with deep compassion With a redeeming plan, he rose He tried in vain to gather them To a shelter from the killing winter cold.
Oh, but simple creatures seldom Comprehend the ways of man. Sometimes love expressed is met with doubt and fear. He thought, "If I could only fly among you, I know I could make you understand. Just for a moment walk beside you I know it would all be clear. It would all be clear."
And even before the thought had left his mind Christmas bells from far away Reminded him of simple truth He'd denied until that very day, How Jesus born the Savior Walked this earth with mortal man. Another soul brought safely home And Christmas would never be the same again. It would never be the same.
