I don't know if you believe in Christmas,
or if you've presents underneath the Christmas tree.
But if you believe in love, that will be more than enough
for you to come and celebrate with me.
For I have held the precious gift that love brings,
even though I never saw a Christmas star.
I know there is a light, I have felt it burn inside,
and I have seen it shining from afar.
Christmas is a time to come together,
a time to put all differences aside.
And I reach out my hand, to the family of Man,
to share the joy I feel at Christmas time.
For the truth that binds us all together,
I would like to say a simple prayer
that at this special time, you will have true peace of mind,
and love to last throughout the coming year.
And if you believe in love
that will be more than enough,
for peace to last throughout the coming year,
And peace on earth will last throughout the year.

Above, The Christmas Wish, by Kermit the Frog, of Sesame Street.
With your speakers on, you'll hearing Kermit singing this song for you.
