Do they know it's Christmas (p.163) (Partoche) REFRAIN: It's Christmas time There's no need to be afraid At Christmas time We let in light and we banish shade And in our world of plenty We can spread a smile of joy Throw your arms around the world At Christmas time
1. 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 And the Christmas bells that ring there Are the clanging chimes of doom Well tonight thank God it's them instead of you
2. 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 no rivers flow Do they know it's Christmas time at all Here's to you Raise a glass for everyone Here's to them Underneath that burning sun Do they know it's Christmas time at all
3. Feed the world Let them know it's Christmas time Feed the world Let them know it's Christmas time again.
