Where ever you are and whoever you be,
This small Christmas message I’m sending to thee
May your wishes come true in a magical way,
As I send you glad tidings for your Christmas day.

Perhaps you’re an exile and far from your home
In New York or Paris or Boston or Rome,
But wherever you be in this wild world today
Accept my best wishes for your Christmas day.

If you’re feeling despondent and thinking of home,
My thoughts they are with so you’re not alone,
I’ll be raising a glass with a wish and a prayer,
That will sail on the wind to wherever you are.

I will think of all loved ones that went to their rest,
To my friend at my window….old robin red breast,
I will ask him to carry my prayer on the wing,
A wish for the needy some comfort to bring.

There’s many more things I could wish you today,
Like health and good fortune and blessings each day,
And should you be fighting a fight of your own,
My prayers they are with you as you venture home.

To friends and to strangers at this Christmas time,
May God bless and keep you in safe arms entwined,
There’s someone that’s somewhere that has you in mind,
So love it is with you at this Christmas time.

Merry Christmas to all!
