lyrics

With violet stitch and panels red
In Mother’s quilt, at edge of bed
The storm has passed, he must be near
Bringing hope to cure the grey
On winter’s laugh and tempered sleigh
A bright old man on christmas day

I toe gently all the way
Down the steps to soft display
The lights aglow and jingles clear
A sight to grant all children’s cheer
Sister if you’d only seen
The silent night born revelry
In times so stark we must believe
That goodwill comes to those in need

The pantry once so full an’ grand
Of late has been barren land
When Father said he’d do his best
I hadn’t dreamed a lion’s share
With meat and cans of fruit to spare
Enough to answer any prayer

Magic at the darkest hour
Comes to even humble bower
Bless this night and bless the man
Who knew my list, and with it ran

A Lion’s Share

With violet stitch and panels red
In Mother’s quilt, at edge of bed
The storm has passed, he must be near
Bringing hope to cure the grey
On winter’s laugh and tempered sleigh
A bright old man on christmas day
