In Honor of our Daughter who waits..





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


There 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 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


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, and I'll you from my heart


I wish you Merry Christmas
