Remember Corlynn’s “Christmas Angel”? This Christmas song is about a child who is not the Christ baby. Corlynn sings about a wonderful child who is experiencing the wonder of Christmas.

Child of wonder, child of mine
sleeping softly at Christmas time
Child of wonder, near the tree,
waiting for Santa
still as could be.

Came on tip-toe from your bed
“Heard the rein-deer outside”, you said.
“Could I sit beside you just for a peek?”
Waiting for Santa,
we both fell asleep.

Will Santa still be a hero
will you still hear the reindeer loud and clear,
and will Christmas still be a time of wonder
this time next year?

Child of wonder, child of mine
sleeping softly at Christmas time
Child of wonder on my knee;
You’ll always be a child of wonder to me.
