Harry Connick, Jr. — The Blessed Dawn Of Christmas Day lyrics

The blessed dawn of christmas day
As honestly as children pray
The warmth that melts the eve away
The holiness of alpenglow

I rose to join the glorious morn
Whose calm and splendor would adorn
The virgin mother's infant born
The blessed dawn of christmas day

I pray one day my heart will see
The light of god's eternity
And know that jesus died for me
Now close, my eyes
So I may rise
At blessed dawn of christmas day
