Steve Wariner — This Christmas Prayer lyrics

(Allen Shamblin /Steve Wariner)

Christmas… what a wonderful time of year
But it can also be a dark and lonely time
And if you don't spend it with those you truly love
Well it can feel just like any other day
So this is a prayer for the lonely
Especially those children all around the world
Whose hearts have been torn apart this year

Chorus:
So pardon my tears things are different this year
There's a cry I can't ignore
I've thrown out my list and instead of a wish
I'm praying this Christmas prayer
That wherever you are may the bright morning star
Lead you to someone who cares
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/steve-wariner-this-christmas-prayer-lyrics.html ]
Well, Jimmy Stewart's on my screen again
Man I miss those simple black and white days
Then someone hits the remote and I see the sad dark eyes
Of a young girl on the other side of the world
And I think about the things she's had to see
Things my children can't even imagine

Chorus:
So pardon my tears things are different this year
There's a cry I can't ignore
I've thrown out my list and instead of a wish
I'm praying this Christmas prayer
That whoever you are know that God's shining star
Leads you to someone who cares

Tag:
So whoever you are know that God's shining star
Always leads you to someone who cares
