Lyrics

He Came For You

Late one night on Christmas eve down at the county home
Lying in our broken beds feeling so alone
Then a man came through the downstairs door
In a big red hat and suit
Laughing and singing with lots of toys and big bright shiny boots

But where did he come from
I wonder who he really is
I don't know what he saw in us
But let me tell you this

Chorus
He came for you He came for me
He came so all of us could see
I've never ever felt that kind of love
Shiny toys up and down the hall
We're not forgotten after all
He was a gift sent from up above

It was just like Christmas eve two thousand years ago
A gift was sent from up above to a lonely world below
The wise men brought Him gifts. The north star shined so bright
A Savior came to save us all from a manger one cold night

But where did He come from
I wonder who He really is
I don't know what He saw in us
But let me tell you this

Chorus
He came for you He came for me
He came so all the world would see
There's never ever been that kind of love
A shining star to guide the way
He's coming back for us one day
A gift sent from up above
Repeat Chorus

Late one night on Christmas eve down at the county home
