  Artist List   /   Matthew West   /   The Heart of Christmas


06. One Last Christmas

The Heart of Christmas
by Matthew West


It’s the news that no one hopes for / Every parent’s greatest fear / Finding out the
child you love so much / Might not make it through the year // Now the thought
of spending Christmas / Without him just feels wrong / They’ve been praying for
a miracle / Now they’re hoping he can just hold on // For one last Christmas, one
last time / One last season when all the world is right / One more telling of the
story / One more verse of silent night / They’d give anything so he could have /
One last Christmas // Middle of September / Still seventy degrees / Daddy climbs
up in the attic / Brings down candles / Hangs the lights on all the trees // Then
the neighbors started asking / And pretty soon word got around / First it was the
neighborhood / Before too long they lit up that whole town // Twenty-seventh
of October / His time was wearing thin / Friends and family, even strangers that
they didn’t even know / Brought presents in // He was weak but he was smiling
/ Like there was nothing even wrong / They said he wouldn’t make it / Looks like
he got to see it after all
