letra de on a quiet christmas morn – mary chapin carpenter

there’s not a soul out on the street,
no footprints in the falling snow
the only moving thing i see is the curl of chimney smoke
frost elts on the window panes and the house is getting warm
from the fare’s carckling flames on a quiet christmas morn.

now i walked out in the silent world,
no engines roared, no sirens whined
no one raced off to work through the din of honking h*rns
there was truly peace on earth on a quiet christmas morn

and on a quiet christmas morn, a child was in a stable born
shepherds heard the baby cry, saw a new star in the sky
on a quiet christmas morn

the hustle stops and the bustle stills,
on this day all is calm
forgiving kindness and goodwill soothes like a healing balm
the hardest heart is softened by the blessing that was born
when the gift of grace was offered on a quiet christmas morn

and on a quiet christmas morn, a child was in a stable born
shepherds heard the baby cry, saw a new star in the sky
on a quiet christmas morn

shepherds heard the baby cry, saw a new star in the sky
on a quiet christmas morn
