Woman:Joy to the world
Let Heaven and nature sing
Let Heaven and nature sing

Toby:Now Johny never got his wish on December 25
That's what he said when we left the orphanage
9 years old, but Johny was an old soul
Gonna spend his first Christmas in a real home
Showed me a picture that he drew the night before
Was a picture of a man standing outside a door
I asked him who it was and he said someone I only
See in dreams
comforts me when I cry myself to sleep

Woman:Father of the fatherless
Be with your sons and daughters this Christmas
This Christmas

Toby:Believe in angels?
Johny asked me starin' at the sky
I said I do and saw a sparkle in his eye
Big brother for the weekend respondin' to the season
Took the chance that givin's better than recievin'
Two nights, a new family, some holiday cheer
We laughed and sang
Came on a midnight clear
We gave, recieved, and as we headed to a close
We looked to the Heavens and it started to snow down blessings

Woman:Father of the fatherless
Be with your sons and daughters this Christmas
(Toby: You ain't livin' til you choose to give love and joy and peace to one of His)
Father let us not forget
The children who are all alone this Christmas
(Toby:You ain't livin' til you choose to give, you ain't livin' til you choose to give)

Little boy:Religion that God our Father Accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in the distress
Merry Christmas Everyone

Woman:Joy to the world
The Lord is come
Let Heaven and nature sing
Let Heaven and nature sing
Let Heaven and nature sing
Let Heaven and nature sing

Toby:Believe in angels Johny asked me starin' at the sky
I said I do and saw a sparkle in his I
9 years old, but Johny was an old soul
Gonna spend his next Christmas in a real home

(Repeat toby and woman's chorus line)

Toby:You ain't livin'
You ain't livin'
You ain't livin'

Woman:Let Heaven and nature sing
Let Heaven and nature sing
(Toby:You ain't livin' til you choose to give, you ain't livin' til you choose to give)
Don't leave me all alone
This Christmas

Little Boy:Merry Christmas everyone!
