Do They Know It’s Christmas (2014)

It’s Christmas time
There’s no need to be afraid
At Christmas time
We let in light and we banish shade

And in our world of plenty
We can spread a smile of joy
Throw your arms around the world at Christmas time

But say a prayer
Pray for the other ones
At Christmas time
It’s hard but while you’re having fun
There’s a world outside your window
And it’s a world of dread and fear
Where a kiss of love can kill you
And there’s death in every tear
And the Christmas bells that ring there
Are the clanging chimes of doom
Well tonight we’re reaching out
And touching you

Bring peace and joy this Christmas
To west Africa
A song of hope
When there’s no hope tonight
Why is comfort to be feared
Why is to touch to be scared
How can they know it’s Christmas time at all

Here’s to you
Raise a glass for everyone
Here’s to them
And all their years to come
Can they know it’s Christmas time at all

Feed the world
Let them know it’s Christmas time again
Feed the world
Let them know it’s Christmas time again
Feed the world
Let them know it’s Christmas time again
Feed the world
Let them know it’s Christmas time again
Feed the world
Let them know it’s Christmas time again
Feed the world
Let them know it’s Christmas time again
Feed the world
Let them know it’s Christmas time again
Feed the world
Let them know it’s Christmas time again
Feed the world
