There's no need to be afraid.
At christmas time
We let in light and banish shade
And in our world of plenty
We can spread a smile of joy
Throw your arms around the world
At christmas time.
But say a prayer,
Pray for the other ones.
At christmas time it's hard
But when you're having fun...
There's a world outside your window
And it's a world of dread and fear
Where the only water flowing is
The bitter sting of tears
Where the christmas bells that are ringing
Are the clanging chimes of doom
Well, tonight thank God it's them istead of you.
And there won't be snow in africa this christmas time
The greatest gift they'll get this year is life.
Where nothing ever grows
No rain or rivers flow
Do they know it's christmas time at all?
