Christmas Dinner | Lyrics

And it came to pass on a Christmas evening

When all the doors were shuttered tight

Outside standing, a lonely boy-child

Cold and shivering in the night


On the street every window

Save but one was gleaming bright;

And to this window walked the boy-child

Peeking in saw candlelight


Through other windows he had looked at turkeys

Ducks, and geese, and cherry pies;

But through this window saw a gray-haired lady

Table bare and tears in her eyes


Into his coat reached the boy-child

Knowing well there was little there

He took from his pocket his own Christmas dinner

A bit of cheese and some bread to share


His outstretched hands held the food and they trembled

As the door it opened wide

Said he "Would you share with me Christmas dinner?"

Said she gently, "Come inside."


The gray-haired lady brought forth to the table

Glasses two, last drops of wine

Said she "Here's a toast to everyone's Christmas

And especially yours and mine!"


And it came to pass on that Christmas evening

Whene all the doors were shuttered tight

That in that town the happiest Christmas

Was shared by candlelight
