From the album Christmas: The Story of Stories.

Written by Rich Mullins.

I thought Christmas day would never come
But it’s here at last, so mom and dad
The waiting’s finally done

And you gotta get up
You gotta get up,
You gotta get up
It’s Christmas morning

Last night I heard reindeers on my roof
Well you may think I’m exaggerating
But I swear I’m tellin’ you the truth


Did my sister get a baby doll
Did my brother get his bike?
Did I get that red wagon
The kind that makes you fly?
Oh I hope there’ll be peace on earth
I know there’s good will toward men
On account of the baby born in Bethlehem


Mom and daddy stayed up too late last night
I guess they got carried away
In the Christmas candlelight
