• Jason Gray - Children Again Lyrics

    From the album Christmas Stories: Repeat the Sounding Joy

    We found one in a closet one in a drawer
    There's no hiding place we won't find anymore
    We'd shake every present for any small clue
    Of what lies beneath the words “from me to you”

    But for every present left under a tree
    There are things that we hoped for and never received
    The years and the yearning can make us forget
    To be filled with wonder instead of regret

    But Christmas is calling again
    Leading us to Bethlehem

    (chorus)
    Where a child is waiting for you
    When grown up dreams don't come true
    It sounds crazy, but a baby
    Can make us all children again

    When you want to forgive but the wound is so deep
    And you ache for forgiveness for the secrets you keep
    When the flower of your heart only feels like a thorn
    And you long for the child that you were before

    Christmas is calling again
    Leading you to Bethlehem

    (chorus)
    Where a child is waiting for you
    When grown up dreams don't come true
    It sounds crazy, but a baby
    Can make us all children again

    Afraid to be strangers
    We circle the manger
    And kneel down beside it again
    But He wishes that we would crawl in

    (chorus)
    Where a child is waiting for you
    When grown up dreams don't come true
    It sounds crazy, that a baby
    Would ask for our hearts made of stone
    And then give us a heart like His own
    If we let Him, He will begin
    To make us all children again
    We will be children again

    God wrapped a gift that He hid in the world
    Deep in the womb of an innocent girl
    But when we were ready and on a dirt floor
    Love found a way in and left open the door
