Josh Turner – Soldier’s Gift

Written by on November 11, 2021

From his new Christmas album King Size Manger, Josh Turner presentsĀ Soldier’s Gift.

Today is Veteran’s Day and this song is a good reminder of those who are still serving overseas and wont be with their loved ones this season. Continue to pray for them, their saftey, and their familes too.

‘Twas the night before Christmas
When all through the house
Not a creature was stirring
Not even a mouse
No stockings were hung
The mantle was bare
St. Nicholas looked around
And no one was there

Yeah, tonight there’s a soldier in a land far away
While the children listen for the bells on a sleigh
We’ve never met ’em, names not on our list
But you’ll sleep well America, that’s the soldier’s gift

A house cold and quiet
A sad sight to see
No tinsel, no presents
Not a light on a tree
Just some medals and badges
In a frame on the wall
That stand at attention
If duty should call

Yeah, tonight there’s a soldier in a land far away
While the children listen for the bells on a sleigh
We’ve never met ’em, names not on our list
But you’ll sleep well America, that’s the soldier’s gift

Green and red paper
Big bows and ribbons
Outside the snow falls
And Icicles glisten
Joy To The World
From a caroling choir
Mistletoe kisses
Throw a log on the fire

‘Cause tonight there’s a soldier in a land far away
While the children listen for the bells on a sleigh
We’ve never met ’em, names not on our list
But you’ll sleep well America, that’s the soldier’s gift

Yeah, God blessed America with the soldier’s gift
