do you hear what i hear lyrics – vanessa williams

said the night wind to the little lamb
“do you see what i see
way up in the sky little lamb
do you see what i see?

“a star, a star, dancing in the night
with a tail as big as a kite
with a tail as big as a kite.”

said the little lamb to the shepherd boy
“do you hear what i hear
ringing through the sky shepherd boy?
do you hear what i hear?

“a song, a song, high above the trees
with a voice as big as the sea
with a voice as big as the sea.”

(listen)
(listen)

said the shepherd boy to the mighty king
“do you know what i know
in your palace, oh mighty king?
do you know what i know?

“a child, a child, shivers in the cold
let us bring him silver and gold
let us bring him silver and gold.”

said the king to the people everywhere
“listen to what i say.
pray for peace, people everywhere
listen to what i say.

“a child, a child, sleeping in the night
he will bring us goodness and light
he will bring us goodness and light.”

(listen, do you hear what i hear)
(do you see what i see)
(do you know what i know)
(pray for peace people everywhere)

do you hear what i hear
a child, a child, sleeping in the night
he will bring us goodness and light
he will bring us goodness and light

(listen)

do you hear what i hear
do you hear what i hear
listen
