One frozen night in 1914 at the height of World War One
The unthinkable happened
All along the entire western front The British and German soldiers lay down their weapons
In an unofficial cease fire to celebrate Christmas Eve together 
They exchanged gifts and saw each other as brothers And that peace lasted for two more days
When they were ordered back to battle 
In those few days, though Men remembered the reason for Christmas Amongst the devastation And it's a story that should never be forgotten  Through the smoke filled night Silence rolls from both sides Across a bloody battlefield
It was a cold Christmas Eve in 1914
For those who were there it seemed unreal

As time was still, the spirit moved the soldiers To lay down their arms, raise their voice in song
And pretend for a while the war was over

If it could happen then, it could happen again A world torn apart to join hands and hearts To celebrate His birth, peace on this earth If for one magic night, we could find again a reason not to fight Maybe, there's a chance, this time it might last

As opposing sides approached Through broken words they spoke It wasn't long before they felt at ease
They shared their cigarettes What they had they used as gifts They didn't feel like enemies 
With candles lit, they stood shoulder to shoulder And on that field they found true common ground
And as they prayed, they dreamed the war was over

If it could happen then, it could happen again A world torn apart to join hands and hearts To celebrate His birth, peace on this earth If for one magic night, we could find again a reason not to fight Maybe, there's a chance, this time it might last

If it could happen then, it could happen again
