It's Baby's first Christmas, what a beautiful sight!
As he gurgles out loud in spontaneous delight.
As he gazes at the Tree, with it's baubles and trim
I know only He can hear the Angels sweet hymns.
Tears from your Baby's eyes are like Pearls from the sea.
String them up, they'll crystalize and save them all for me.
Someday you'll have your little Girl and when I'm old and gray
All I'll have is a string of Pearls, but pearls don't fade away.
Welcome to this World little one, though you won't understand.
The ravages that have been done -- all in the name of Man!
The Rivers are polluted -- this land of ours is torn.
The Animals are being killed, the Forests have been shorn.
