I said a Christmas prayer for you,
Because the season's here.
I didn't ask for riches,
But for gifts so much more dear.
I asked for joyful gatherings,
With your family all around,
And for carols to inspire you,
with their old familiar sound.
I asked for quiet moments,
In your heart on Christmas morn,
For a special time to celebrate,
The Savior who was born.
I asked for friends to send their best,
That you might know they care,
I asked for peace and love and hope,
And I know God heard my prayer.
