How I Wish
© 2013, John Gerard Macchietto

Verse 1: On a dark and snowy night
Mary came to rest --
Unaware her labor would
Bring mankind its best.

The joy she held within her heart
Soon spread 'cross the land --
How I wish I could have seen
This miracle first-hand.

Verse 2: On a dark and snowy night
The angels joined in song --
Showing that the prophesy
Was moving right along.

Singing joy and praises
Resounding through the land --
How I wish I could have heard
This joyous song first-hand.

(Instrumental - Humming)

Verse 3: On a dark and snowy night
The animals stood still --
Witnessing a miracle
Of wonder from God's will.

A presence of deep peacefulness
Shown in all their eyes --
How I wish I could have seen
The wonder in their eyes.

Verse 4: On a dark and snowy night
Christ came to us all --
The largest gift unto the world
In a package very small.

Showing us that we could have
The joy that's found above --
I don't have to wish for this
It's found in Christmas love.
(Humming).
