At an antique desk
An old man sits alone
It's Christmas Eve
And it's almost time to go

He signs his name to a letter he just wrote
Then he reads it back with a voice as soft as snow

[Chorus]
I want peace on earth for Christmas
In a world where there's not one hungry child
They would hope and faith
Conquers fear and hate
All I'm asking for is a little more love

Then he walks outside
And he climbs up on his sleigh
And calls out to his reindeer
Off they fly away
Oh tonight he'll make a million dreams appear
While he wishes that his own dreams would come true this year

[Chorus]

That they would hope and faith
Conquers fear and hate
All I'm asking for is a little more love
