Alone on Christmas Day

by Roger Horsch

I knelt down by my bedside
then I bowed my head to pray
I ask you Lord, why must I be
alone on Christmas day?

I have no children of my own
I have no loving wife
Why must I be alone like this?
why must I live this life?

A life lived mostly by myself
at one time felt so grand
But, now I'm so much older
and, I just don't understand

Why it is...that this must be
for I know...you love me so
Please answer me this question
'cause I have a need to know

I thought I'd be alone this day
Then, I heard the church bells chime
That's when I realized, I was never alone
'cause you've been with me all the time
