The Christmas Shoes by NewSong

It was (1)____________ Christmas time, there I stood in another line
Tryin' to buy that last gift or two, not (2)____________ in the Christmas mood
Standing right in front of me was a little boy (3)______________ anxiously
Pacing 'round like little boys do
And in his hands he held a pair of shoes

And His (4)______________ (5)________ (6)________ and old, he was dirty from (7)________ to toe
And when it came his time to pay
I couldn't believe what I heard him say

Chorus:
Sir, I want to buy these shoes for my Mama, please
It's Christmas Eve and these (8)__________ are (9)________ her size
Could you hurry, sir, Daddy says there's not much time
You see she's been sick for quite a while
And I know (10)__________ shoes would (11)________ her smile
And I want her to look beautiful if Mama meets Jesus tonight

He (12)______________ (13)______________ for what seemed (14)________ years
Then the cashier said, Son, there's not enough here
He searched his pockets frantically
Then he turned and he (15)____________ at me
He said Mama (16)________ (17)__________________ good at our house
Though most years she just did without
Tell me Sir, what am I going to do,
Somehow I've got to buy her these Christmas shoes

So I laid the money down, I just had to help him out
I'll never forget the (18)________ on his face (19)________ he said
Mama's gonna look so great

Sir, I want to buy these shoes for my Mama, please
It's (20)__________________ Eve and these shoes are just her size
Could you hurry, sir, Daddy says there's not much time
You see she's been sick for quite a while
And I (21)________ (22)__________ shoes would make her smile
And I want her to look beautiful if (23)________ meets Jesus tonight

Bridge:
I knew I'd caught a (24)______________ of heaven's love
As he thanked me and ran out
I knew that God had sent (25)________ little boy
To remind me what Christmas is all about


Sir, I want to buy these shoes for my Mama, please
It's Christmas Eve and these shoes are (26)________ her size
Could you hurry, sir, Daddy says there's not much time
You see she's been sick for quite a while
And I know (27)__________ shoes would make her smile
And I (28)________ her to look beautiful if Mama meets Jesus tonight
I want her to look beautiful if Mama meets Jesus tonight
