Christmas In My Soul Songtext
I love my country

as it dies

In war and pain

before my eyes

I walk the streets
where disrespect has been

The sins of politics

the politics of sin

the heartlessness that darkens my soul

on Christmas

Red and silver

on the leaves

fallen white snow

rung softly through the trees
madonnas weep

for wars of hell

They blow out the candles

and haunt Noel

The missing love that rings through the world

on Christmas

black panther brothers

bound in jail

Chicago seven

and the justice scale

Homeless Indian

of Manhattan isle

all God's sons have gone to trial

and all God's love is out of style

on Christmas

Now the time has come to fight

laws in the book of love burn bright

people, you must win

for thee America

her dignity

for all the high court world to see

on Christmas

Christmas in my soul

Christmas in my soul

Christmas in my soul

Joy to the world
