Christmas Song - #20 From A Distance Christmas Version

This is a shout out to a great friend and MC co-hort - Cathy Short Weaver!  She has been faithfully watching all the Christmas videos and suggested this favorite from Bette Midler.  I had no idea that she had redone this in a Christmas version.  With all the tragedies and hurt this holiday season, we do have much to be thankful for, God is still God and He is still good - because God doesn't change!  Praying for the peace and the hope of the holidays to fill your season!

From a distance
The world looks blue and green
And the snow-capped mountains white
From a distance
The ocean meets the stream
And the eagle takes to flight

From a distance
There is harmony
And it echoes through the land
And it's the voice of hope
And it's the voice of peace
It's the voice of every man

From a distance
The world sings 'Silent Night'
Like a soft embracing psalm
From a distance (From a distance)
The words sound sweet and clear
And all is bright and calm
From a distance
We are instruments
Marching in a common band
Playing songs of hope
Playing songs of peace
They're the songs of every man

God is watching us (God is watching)
God is watching us (I know he's watching)
God is watching us
From a distance

In excelsis deo

From a distance
You, you look like my friend
Even though we are at war
From a distance
I just I cannot comprehend
What all this fighting's for
From a distance
There is harmony
Do you hear it echo
The land
It's the song of joy
It's the song of peace
It's the heart of every man
In the season of
Universal love
This is the song of every man

Chorus (2x)

Oh come let us adore him
Joy to the world
