This song was inspired by the Elf Louise Christmas Project, where volunteer elves and Santas gather, wrap, and deliver personalized gifts to children in financially struggling families. All sales of this track benefit this nonprofit organization. Read more at www.elflouise.org.



Long ago and far away,
three noble kings, with quiet grace,
travelled to a humble place,
bearing gifts for someone's child
lying in a manger.

Important men they were, and wise.
They took the time from busy lives
to follow a star.

And they followed a star to someone's child that night.
They gave the gift of love.
They gave the gift of time.
They let their hearts be light.
They let their spirits shine.
Let their spirits shine.

Everyone is someone's child,
and every child is yours and mine,
especially at Christmas time.
Can we take the time to see that
no child is a stranger?

To light a glow in children's eyes,
take the time from busy lives
to follow a star.

Wherever you are, you can
follow a star to someone's child tonight.
Give the gift of love.
Give the gift of time.
Let your heart be light.
Let your spirit shine.
Let your spirit shine.
