lyrics

The World At Christmas Time
(Susan Cowsill / Russ Broussard)

I can hear the angels sing on high, any given silent night
I see them float on heaven’s air, through the Crescent City light
They are by my side just in case I fall, every single day, it’s true.
At Christmas time the world sees that too.
(At Christmas Time)

The moon, the trees, the sun and clouds, there is magic to be found
A friendly word, a strangers voice can amaze you and astound
It’s magic when you smile at me, you don’t know my name, do you?
At Christmas time the world is magic too.
(At Christmas Time)
Yes, at Christmas time the world is magic too.
(World’s magic too)

Why, why was it so hard to see
It doesn’t have to be Christmas Eve
To believe there’s hope and faith and that is why
We have to try

At Christmas time

Why, why is it so hard to see
It doesn’t have to be Christmas Eve
For you to see the golden star up in the sky above
And see only love

At Christmas time

Babies cry in the streets and woe, we don’t even hear the sound
I feel like my hands are tied, feet cemented to the ground
I watch the scream, what does this mean?
Now I’m cryin’ too.
At Christmas time the world’s cryin’ too.
Yeah, At Christmas time the world’s cryin’ too.

Still I know the love is every where, I can feel it all around
I can feel it clear across the world, every city, every town
And I can’t wait for December days when it all comes shinin’ through
Cuz, at Christmas time the world feels love too.
(At Christmas time)
Yes, at Christmas time the world feels love too
(At Christmas time)
Oh, at Christmas time the world at Christmas time
(At Christmas time)
The whole world at Christmas time
(At Christmas time)
Whoa oh at Christmas time
(At Christmas time)
New hope
(At Christmas time)
At Christmas time
(At Christmas time)
My world at Christmas time
