Ronnie Milsap — Only One Night Of The Year lyrics

There's a magic light in the stars tonight
It shines with a wondrous glow
There's a whisper of love in the silence of
Gently falling snow
There's cookies and milk on the table
Ribbons on bright candy canes
And every child who is able
Has their nose to the window pane

Cause for only one night of the year
You can see flying reindeer
And if you believe in Christmas' Eve
There's no telling who will appear
With his whiskers and pipe
He comes only one night of the year
It's the sugar plum world of cinnamon swirls
A hints of pinewood in the air
As the church bell chimes about twelve times I slip into my easy chair
To watch the fire die to an ember
And drift into a winter dream Of a magical night in
December And faith in a sight unseen

And for only one night of the year
You can see flying reindeer
And if you believe in Christmas Eve
There's no telling who will appear
With his whiskers and pipe
He comes only one night of the year
If you believe in Christmas Eve
Raise a glass of good cheer
Cause wish as we might
It comes only one night of the year
