The kids were up before dawn this morning
Right to the Christmas tree they ran
Called up the stairs for us to hurry
Wait for this day for about as long as they could stand

While trading presents the little one asks me
Why do we have Christmas each year
I said long ago a child was born this day
He's a gift more precious than all you see here

Cause on this day
A child was born
In the town of Bethlehem
And on this day
