lyrics

It's Christmas time
There's no need to be afraid
At Christmas time 
We let in light and we banish shade
And, in our world of plenty 
We can spread a smile of joy
Throw your arms around the world
At Christmas time

But say a prayer 
Pray for the other ones
At Christmas time it's hard
But, when you're having fun
There's a world outside your window
And, it's a world of dread and fear
Where the only water flowing
Is the bitter sting of tears
And, the Christmas bells that ring there
Are the clanging chimes of doom
Well, tonight thank God it's them
Instead of you

And, there won't be snow in Africa
This Christmas time
The greatest gift they'll get this year is life
(Oooh) Where nothing ever grows
No rain nor rivers flow
Do they know it's Christmas time at all?

(Here's to you) raise a glass for everyone
(Here's to them) underneath that burning sun
Do they know it's Christmas time at all?

Feed the world
Feed the world
Feed the world 
Let them know it's Christmas time again
Feed the world
Let them know it's Christmas time again

repeat
