It was almost christmas time
There I stood in another line
Tryin to buy that last gift or two
Not really in the christmas mood
Standing right in front of me
Was a little boy waiting anxiously
Pacing around like little boys do
And in his hand he held
A pair of shoes

And his clothes were worn and old
He was dirty from head to toe
And when it came his time to pay
I couldn't believe what I heard him say

Sir I wanna buy these shoes, for my momma please
Its christmas eve and these shoes are just her size
Could you hurry sir?
Daddy says there's not much time
You see she's been sick for quite a while
And I know these shoes will make her smile
And I want her to look beautiful
If momma meets jesus tonight

They counted pennies for what seemed like years
And the cashier said son there's not enough here
He searched his pockets frantically
And he turned and he looked at me
And he said momma made christmas good at our house
Although, most years she just did without
Tell me sir
What am I gonna do?
Some how I gotta buy her these christmas shoes

So I laid the money down
I just had to help him out
And I'll never forget
The look on his face
When he said momma's gonna look so great

Sir I wanna buy these shoes, for my momma please
It's christmas eve and these shoes are just her size
Could you hurry sir?
Daddy says there's not much time
You see she's been sick for quite a while
And I know these shoes will make her smile
And I want her to look beautiful
If momma meets jesus tonight

I knew I caught a glimpse of heaven's love as he thanked me and ran out
I know that god has sent that little boy to remind me
What christmas is all about

Sir I wanna buy these shoes, for my momma please
It's christmas eve and these shoes are just her size
Could you hurry sir?
Daddy says there's not much time
You see she's been sick for quite a while
And I know these shoes will make her smile
And I want her to look beautiful
If momma meets jesus tonight

I want her to look beautiful
If momma meets jesus tonight
