The season is upon us now

A time for gifts and giving

And as the year draws to its close

I think about my living

The Christmas time when I was young,


The magic and the wonder,

But colors dull and candles dim,

And dark my standing under

O little Zachary, shining light


You've set my soul to dreaming

You've given back my joy in life

And filled me with new meaning

A Savior King was born that day,


A baby just like you,

And as the Magi came with gifts,

I come with my gift too

That peace on Earth fills up your time,

That brotherhood surrounds you.


That you may know the warmth of love,

And wrap it all around you

It's just a wish, a dream I'm told

From days when I was young


Merry Christmas, little Zachary

Merry Christmas, everyone

Merry Christmas, little Zachary

Merry Christmas, everyone
