A Little Child Shall Lead
"Dear Santa." said the letter
So Santa, if you should be short
Of Christmas dolls this year,
I thought I'd say,
" My last years' doll Is precious and is dear;
And really since she's almost new,
Instead, perhaps, you just might
She says her parents told her that
So please, dear Santa, don't forget
I'm tired now, but Santa dear,
But the letter, still unfinished ,
Ne'er reached old Santa's hand.....
The young girls' parents found it
On her little bedside stand.
With dampened eyes they packed it
Then just before the parents left,
And should there be another child
The nurse who'd seen the letter
The sleigh was all packed, the reindeer were fed,
With sleigh bells a-ringing, I'll land on each roof,
Amid the soft clatter of each little hoof.
To get in the house is the difficult part,
So I'll slide down the chimney of each child's heart.
My sack will hold toys to grant all their wishes.
I can do all these things Lord, only through You,
I just need your blessing, then it's easy to do.
All this is to honor the birth of the One,
That was sent to redeem us, Your most Holy Son.
So to all of my friends, least Your glory I rob,
