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 ’round like little boys do
And in his hands 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 Mama, 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 Mama meets Jesus tonight

They counted pennies for what seemed like years
Then cashier said; Son there’s not enough here
He searches is pockets franticly
Then he turned and he looked at me
He said; Momma made Christmas good at our house
Most years she just did without
Tell me Sir, what am I gonna do?
Somehow I’ve got to 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; Mama’s gonna look so great

Sir, I wanna buy these shoes for my Mama, 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 Mama meets Jesus tonight

I knew I caught a glimpse of heaven’s love
As he thanked me and ran out
I knew that God had sent that little boy to remind me
What Christmas is all about

Sir, I wanna buy these shoes for my Mama, 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 Mama meets Jesus tonight

I want her to look beautiful
If Mama meets Jesus tonight
