Christmas Dinner lyrics:

And it came to pass on a Christmas evening
While all the doors were shuttered tight
Outside standing, lonely boy child
Cold and shivering in the night.

On the street, every window
Save but one, was gleaming bright
And to this window walked the boy child
Peeking in saw, candle light.

Through other windows he had looked at turkeys
Ducks and geese, cherry pies
But through this window saw a gray haired lady
Table bare and tears in her eyes.

Into his coat reached the boy child
Knowing well there was little there
He took from his pocket
His own Christmas dinner
A bit of cheese, some bread to share.

His outstretched hands
Held the food and they trembled
As the door, it opened wide
Said he, "Would you share with me Christmas dinner?"
Gently said she, "Come inside".

The gray haired lady brought forth to the table
Glasses two and her last drop of wine
Said she, "Here's a toast to everyone's Christmas
And especially yours and mine".

And it came to pass on that Christmas evening
While all the doors were shuttered tight
That in that town, the happiest Christmas
Was shared by candle light.

About this song:

"Christmas dinner" was composed by Paul Stookey of the folk music trio Peter, Paul and Mary.
