Newsong The Christmas Shoes Lyrics

It was almost Christmas time

And there I stood in another line

Trying to buy that last gift or two

Not really in the Christmas mood

And standing right in front of me was a

Little boy waiting anxiously

Pacing around like little boys do

And in his hands he held

A pair of shoes

His clothes were worn and old

He was dirty from head to toe

And when it came his time to pay

I couldn’t believe what I heard him say


Sir I wanna buy these shoes

For my mama. please

It’s Christmas eve and these shoes are just her size

Could you hurry sir

Daddy says there’s not much time

You see,

She’s been sick for quite a while And I

know these shoes will make her smile And I

Want her to look beautiful

If mama meets Jesus tonight

They counted penny’s for what seemed like years then the

Cashier said, “Son, there’s not enough here.”

He searched his pockets frantically

Then he turned and he looked at me and he said

“Mama made Christmas good at our house though

Most years she just did without, Tell me sir,

What am I gonna do?

Some how I gotta buy her these Christmas shoes.”

So I laid the money down

I just had to help him out

And I’ll never forget the look on his face when he said,

“Mama’s gonna look so great.”

[Repeat Chorus]

I knew I’d caught a glimpse of heaven’s love as he thanked me and ran out

I knew that God had sent me that little boy to remind me what Christmas is all about

[Repeat Chorus with children]

[Little girl:]

I want her to look beautiful if mama meets Jesus tonight
