Once again the windows shine with pretty lights
Once again our loved ones gather at our side
Busy crowds of strangers greet each other with a smile
There's Christmas in the eyes of every child

Once again the presents are resting by the tree
Once again we worship the One who came for you and me
I hear choirs of voices as they're singing out His name
Again we tell the story of how the Christ Child came

One night a year we believe in peace on earth
One night a year we praise our Savior's birth
I wish every night the whole year through could be
Like Christmas Eve
When love's pure light is shining everywhere, one night a year

Once again around the world heads are bowed in prayer
Once again the promise of peace is in the air
But soon will come the morning and the feeling will be past
And I can't help but wonder why the feeling only lasts

One night a year we believe in peace on earth
One night a year we praise our Savior's birth
I wish every night the whole year through could be
Like Christmas Eve
When love's pure light is shining everywhere, one night a year

One night a year we believe in peace on earth
One night a year we praise our Savior's birth
I wish every night the whole year through could be
Like Christmas Eve
When love's pure light is shining everywhere, one night a year

One night a year
