John denver - Christmas like a lullaby

Christmas like a lullaby steals across the land
A breeze upon the waters, rainfall on the sand
We celebrate a baby born from spirit into man
And Christmas like a lullaby steals across the land

It's morning in Australia; in fact it's Christmas day
And Colorado never seemed so very far away
Back where night has fallen and it's still Christmas eve
And snow is in the mountains that where I always hate to leave

But here I am down under with a brand new family
And Christmas bells are ringing and there's presents 'neath the tree
I know that it's been said before and now I know it's true
That home is where the heart is
And Christmas lives there too
And on this morning Peace on Earth
Is still your fervent prayer
And I can feel it being
Whispered softly everywhere


And guns are are called to silence
And anger called to still
And brotherhood and sisterhood
Surrounded by goodwill

Christmas like a lullaby steals across the land
A breeze upon the waters, rainfall on the sand
We celebrate a baby born from spirit into man
And Christmas like a lullaby steals across the land
