“A Baby Just Like You Lyrics”

A Baby Just Like You

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.

Christmas time when I was young,
the magic and the wonder.
But colors dull and candles dim
and dark my standing under.

Oh, little angel, shining light,
you’ve set my soul to dreaming.
You’ve given back my joy in life,
you 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 have come with my gift too.

That peace on earth fills up your time
and 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.

Why did John Denver write for baby?

A love of music and the environment, and the desire to communicate those passions to other people led Henry John Deutschendorf, the son of an Air Force officer, to write his first song at age 13. … “The fourth song I wrote was called “For Baby (For Bobbie),”
