A Christmas Wish

On Christmas Eve, my Joseph sleeps with visions of video games dancing A Christmas Wish through his head. I know his dreams will come true. I have a Christmas wish, too.

On that silent and holy night

In a manger, far away

While angels sang

And shepherds wept

Baby Jesus slept in Heavenly peace

The North Star burned bright

Lighting up this blessed scene

The world rejoiced the nativity of their newborn king


On this silent and holy night

As shimmering snowflakes flutter gently to the ground

Creating a winter wonderland

With house lights ablaze

In red, green and gold

And candles flicker in every window

I make a special wish


On this silent and holy night

The North Star encircles me

In a shining halo of love

As another sweet child

Sleeps, so tender and mild

I pray to our Lord in Heaven

For just one moment of sight

So I may set my eyes upon my beautiful son


On this silent and Holy night

If Jesus grants my wish

A miracle will occur

As my eyes become bright

And my vision clears

With joy in my heart

I look at my dear Joseph

Seeing him for the very first time


On this silent and holy night

I watch him in his slumber

I take in every feature

From the color of his hair

To the shape of his little toe

As his chest rises and falls with each breath

I thank our Savior Jesus

For this most glorious Christmas gift
