It was almost Christmas time
There I stood in another line
Tryin to buy the last gift or two
Not really in the Christmas mood
Standing right in front of me
Was a little boy waiting anxiously
Pacing around like little boys do
And in his hands he held a pair of shoes
And 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 said there's not much time
You see, she's been sick for quite a while
And I know these shoes will 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
Through 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 going to look so great


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

(Chorus then fades out)
