The Christmas Shoes

Link: [NewSong]


The Christmas Shoes
NewSong
It was almost Christmas time
There I stood in another line
Tryin’ to buy that last gift or two
Not really in the Christmas mood
Standin’ right in front of me
Was a little boy waitin’ anxiously
Pacin’ around like little boys do
And in his hands he held
A pair of shoes
And his clothes were worn and old
He was dirty from head to toe
And when it came his time to pay
I couldn’t believe what I heard him say

Sir I want to buy these shoes
For my mama please
It’s Christmas 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 know these shoes
Would make her smile
And I want her to look beautiful
If mama meets Jesus tonight

He counted pennies for what seemed like years
Then the cashier said
Son there’s not enough here
He searched his pockets frantically
Then he turned and he looked at me
He said
Mama made Christmas good at our house
Though most years she did without
Tell me sir
What am I gonna 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 look on his face
When he said
Mama’s gonna look so great

Sir I want to buy these shoes
For my mama please
It’s Christmas 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 know these shoes
Would make her smile
And I want her to look beautiful
If mama meets Jesus tonight

I knew I’d caught a glimpse of Heaven’s love
As he thanked me and ran out
I knew that God had sent that 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 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 know these shoes
Would make her smile
And I want her to look beautiful
If mama meets Jesus tonight

And I want her to look beautiful
If mama meets Jesus tonight
