I've wished a very special wish
For you this Christmas-tide;
It reaches far beyond today,
'Tis high and deep, and wide.
I wish for you the angels' song
That tells of hope and love;
I wish the radiance of the Star
To guide your thoughts above.
I wish for you the sturdy faith
That led the Wise Men three
Through cold of night, o'er desert drear,
The Holy Child to see.
I wish for you a humble heart,
With purpose strong and true--
The blessing of the Christ, our Lord--
This is my wish for you.
