Dark times come upon us, In this life, here on earth, We miss the beating wings of the angels. We can not see the stars thru the clouds of doubt and fear And we lose the happy ending to our story. (Chorus) But then the Star shines bright, and the Baby's born again. And the oh-so Holy Night brings the dawn. And the wisdom of the ages Finds a Path to open a heart, And the love, oh the love, shines on. Challenges surround us In this life, here on earth. We hunger for the songs of the angels. The voices of the future Hear the whispers of the past, And we seek a new beginning to the story. (Chorus) But then the Star shines bright, and the Baby's born again. And the oh-so Holy Night brings the dawn. And the wisdom of the ages Finds a Path to open a heart, And the love, oh the love, shines on. And the love, oh the love, shines on.

When they ask me what I wish for on this holy holiday, I can only think of all the ways the world has lost its way. And I hope that we will see the Light in every baby's birth And expand our love to everyone. All I really want is peace on earth. Yesterday I saw an angel. She was teaching kids to read. And another one gave up his coat for somebody in need. Oh, it's all around the city and in ev'ry single town, Lots of people helping people. All they really want is peace on earth. And if you search the whole world over, this is what you'll see: People just want to take care of their family. And when we realize our differences are really very small, Ev'ry person is a part of us all. Everybody has a purpose. Their place is guaranteed. Doesn't matter what they look like, or what holy books they read. Oh, we all belong together in one caring family. We are here to love each other. All we really want is peace on earth.

about

Original songs and arrangements for Christmas.... I'll be adding songs, and this will evolve as a mixture of live and studio recordings... best to download as individual songs, rather than an album! Happy Holy-days!
