lyrics

When church bells ring
And choirs sing
And children close their eyes and dream of snow
Where wreaths are hung
And carols sung
Everyone should have somewhere to go

I light a candle in the window
And pray that you are near
No-one should be cold
This time of year

Every father's daughter
Every mother's son
There's a special place
In someone's heart
For everyone

I light a candle in the window
And pray that you are near
No-one should be cold
This time of year

Food on every table
Presents by each tree
Isn't that the way
That Christmas time's supposed to be?

I light a candle in the window
And pray that you are near
No-one should be cold
This time of year

When church bells ring
And choirs sing
And children close their eyes and dream of snow
Where wreaths are hung
And carols sung
Everyone should have somewhere to go

I light a candle in the window
And pray that you are near
No-one should be cold
This time of year

I light a candle in the window
And pray that you are near
No-one should be cold
This time of year

Friends of Peter McVerry Trust

Friends of Peter McVerry Trust have recorded this track to
raise money to support families living in homelessness this
Christmas.
Written by John Evans and performed by Alan Brereton, the song
celebrates Christmas but reminds us that ‘food on every table and presents by
each tree’ will not be a reality for the hundreds of families in Ireland who don’t have a
place to call home this Christmas.
