Christmas like a Child

Not a traditional Christmas carol in the sense that we know them. But, Christmas Like a Child, by Third Day, is one of my seasonal favorites. The group banded together in Marietta, Georgia  in the 1990s, and delivers some of the most powerful contemporary Christian music about hope and encouragement I’ve ever heard. This song was on their first Christmas album, Christmas Offerings, released in 2006. Their soulful, Southern style stands alone in whatever song they perform, Christmas or otherwise.

I want to feel Christmas, how it used to be
With all of its wonder falling on me
This season has felt so empty, oh for quite a while
I want to feel Christmas like a child

I want to see snowflakes fall to the ground
My brothers and sisters all gathered around
Singing “Away In A Manager” as we sit by the fire
I want to feel Christmas like a child

It’s been so long now, I can’t say
Just when I lost my way
But I’m going back to how it was
When this day meant everything
And we spent our time remembering 
The baby Child born for us

It’s all about Jesus, asleep in the straw
This infant, this King, this Savior for all

So I don’t need bells to be ringing
‘Cause I’ll join with angels singing Gloria
And I can feel Christmas like a child
I want to feel Christmas like a child…

And here they are in person, singing Christmas Like A Child

  1. That is such a timeless and beautiful photo of Peanut and the lyric from that song is wonderful. I would play the video, but I have my Christmas music streaming from the Amazon Cloud to the TV via Roku.
