Lyrics
It was Christmas Eve in a little Texas town
The snow was falling softly to the ground
Outside a little chapel stood a man
With sightless eyes, a candle in his hand

Oh Lord, if you're there, help me in
I need to light a candle for a friend
Who came from a land across the sea
They called him the Man From Galilee

No one seemed to hear his lonely cry
They laughed in Christmas cheer and walked on by
Inside they watched a clock upon the wall
Put silver in the box and left the hall

Oh Lord, if you're there, help me in
I need to light a candle for a friend
Who came from a land across the sea
They called him The Man From Galilee

Soon the church was quiet in the night
And one-by-one the candles lost their light
In darkness now, the old man knelt to pray
Forgive them, Lord, they must have lost their way

Oh Lord, if you're there, hear my prayer
Let the message of your Birthday fill the air
Let the lesson of your love help us to see
That Christmas is The Man From Galilee

Oh Lord, if you're there, help me in
I need to light a candle for a friend
Who came from a land across the sea
They called him The Man From Galilee
