Someday at Christmas

Songs of peace and freedom and justice for all – ‘t’is always the season. Allison Crowe here gives voice to such a tune that filled the air first in 1967 with Stevie Wonder:
 
Peace on Earth, goodwill toward all.


 
Someday at Christmas
 
Composed by Ron Miller & Bryan Wells
As Performed by Allison Crowe
 
Someday at Christmas men won't be boys
playing with bombs like kids play with toys.
One warm December our hearts will see
a world where men are free.
 
Someday at Christmas there'll be no wars
when we have learned what Christmas is for -
when we have found what life's really worth
there'll be Peace on Earth.
 
Someday all our dreams will come to be
someday in a world where men are free.
Maybe not in time for you and me
but someday at Christmastime.
 
Someday at Christmas we'll see a land
with no hungry children, no empty hand.
One happy morning people will share
our world where people care.
 
Someday at Christmas there'll be no tears
all men are equal and no men have fears.
One shining moment, one prayer away
from our world today.
 
Someday all our dreams will come to be
someday in a world where men are free.
Maybe not in time for you and me
but someday at Christmastime.
 
Someday at Christmas man will not fail,
hate will be gone and love will prevail.
Someday a new world 'we can start
with hope in every heart.
 
Someday all our dreams will come to be
someday in a world where men are free.
Maybe not in time for you and me
but someday at Christmastime.
 
Visual accompaniment to this musical performance is excerpted from "Peace on Earth", the 1939 Academy Award-nominated cartoon directed by Hugh Harman.
