The Saddest Christmas Song

Little altar boy, I wonder could you pray for me?
Little altar boy, for I have gone astray
What must I do to be holy like you?
Little altar boy, oh, let me hear you pray

Little altar boy, I wonder could you ask your Lord
Ask him, altar boy, to take my sins away
What must I do to be holy like you?
Little alter boy, oh, let me hear you pray

Lift up your voice and send a pray above
Help me rejoice and fill that prayer with love
Now I know my life has been all wrong
Lift my your voice and help a sinner be strong

Little altar boy, I wonder could you pray for me?
Could you tell our Lord I’m gonna change my ways today?
What must I do to be holy like you?
Little altar boy, oh, let me hear you pray
Little altar boy please let me hear you pray!

And yet, it resonates so well…

  1. so true.

  2. This song was by Vic Dana and, as I remember
    it, was very stirring at Christmas in
    1960 or ’61.

  3. Christmas Time is Here by Vince Guaraldi is by far the saddest Christmas song ever and is has nothing to do with the lyrics, just listen to it, even the instrumental makes you want to drink scotch and slit your wrists… but in a nice way.
