The Christmas Shoes

The Christmas Shoes lyrics

It was almost Christmas time, there I stood in another line

Tryin' to buy that last gift or two, not really in the Christmas mood

Standing right in front of me was a little boy waiting anxiously

Pacing 'round 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 want to 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 would make her smile

And I want her to look beautiful if Mama meets Jesus tonight

He counted pennies 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

He said Mama made Christmas good at our house

Though most years she just did without

Tell me Sir, what am I going to do,

Somehow I've got to buy her these Christmas shoes

So I laid the money down, I just had to help him out

I'll never forget the look on his face when he said

Mama's gonna look so great

Sir, I want to 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 would make her smile

And I want her to look beautiful if Mama meets Jesus tonight


I knew I'd caught a glimpse of heaven's love

As he thanked me and ran out

I knew that God had sent that little boy

To remind me just what Christmas is all about

This is possibly one of the most touching songs I have ever heard at Christmas. The lyrics humble us to what life is really about. It is a child's simple wish to give his mommy something that she so greatly deserves. It made me stop in my tracks and think about what I should so humbly ask for.

This is my Christmas wish:

1. For those that live in a world of fear that their mind has created I wish for clarity.

2. For those that must face Christmas without their loved one I wish peace.

3. For those that are facing sickness I wish hope and healing.

4. For those that are facing financial disaster I wish relief.

5. For those facing addictions I wish intervention.

6. For those facing loneliness I wish companionship.

7. For those faced with the task of leadership I wish guidance.

8. For those that are exhausted from stress I wish rest.

9. For those that are faced with relationship issues I wish comraderie.

10. For those ladden with anger I wish forgiveness.

11. For those that have not accepted the Lord, Jesus Christ, I wish spiritual blessings and that the Holy Spirit may fill your heart and you shall live in His never ending Love. For this is the gift of Christmas.

Merry Christmas Everyone! God Bless!

I want to show thanks to the writer just for rescuing me from this scenario. Right after surfing through the the net and finding ideas which were not powerful, I thought my life was gone. Existing without the presence of strategies to the difficulties you've resolved by way of your posting is a crucial case, as well as ones that could have in a wrong way damaged my career if I hadn't discovered your web blog. Your natural talent and kindness in dealing with all areas was useful. I am not sure what I would have done if I hadn't discovered such a point like this. I am able to at this point relish my future. Thanks for your time very much for the professional and effective guide. I will not hesitate to recommend the sites to anyone who needs to have guide on this situation.
