Sunday’s Extras: One Last Christmas

It’s the news that no one hopes for, Every parent’s greatest fear. Finding out the child you love so much, Might not make it through the year. Now the thought of spending Christmas without him just feels wrong. They’ve been praying for a miracle, Now they’re praying he can just hold on.

It’s the news that no one hopes for,
Every parent’s greatest fear
Finding out the child you love so much
Might not make it through the year
Now the thought of spending Christmas
Without him just feels wrong
They’ve been praying for a miracle,
Now they’re praying he can just hold on

[Chorus]
For one last Christmas, one last time,
One last season when the world is right,
One more telling of the story,
One more verse of Silent Night,
They’d give anything so he could have
One last Christmas.

Those words are based on the true story of two-year old Dax Locke and his battle with Leukemia.

I first heard “One Last Christmas” on KLOVE Radio.  Here’s how Matthew West describes the song.

His dad, determined that his son would see Christmas, put up the decorations early. The neighborhood caught on, and did the same. The whole town soon followed suit. A website was built telling his story. Soon, pictures were sent from all over the world of Christmas decorations that had been put up in his honor. Incredible!

Dax did lose his battle with Leukemia, but not before he got to see one last Christmas.

 

Here are the words for my hearing impaired friends.

 

One Last Christmas – Matthew West

It’s the news that no one hopes for,
Every parent’s greatest fear
Finding out the child you love so much
Might not make it through the year
Now the thought of spending Christmas
Without him just feels wrong
They’ve been praying for a miracle,
Now they’re praying he can just hold on

[Chorus]
For one last Christmas, one last time,
One last season when the world is right,
One more telling of the story,
One more verse of Silent Night,
They’d give anything so he could have
One last Christmas.

Middle of September
Still seventy degrees
Daddy climbs up in the attic
Brings down candles
Hangs the lights on all the trees,
Then the neighbors started asking
And pretty soon word got around
First it was the neighborhood,
Before too long they lit up that whole town.

[Chorus]
For one last Christmas, one last time,
One last season when the world is right,
One more telling of the story,
One more verse of Silent Night,
They’d give anything so he could have
One last Christmas.

Twenty-seventh of October,
His time was wearing thin
Friends and family, even strangers
That they didn’t know brought presents in
He was weak but he was smiling
Like there was nothing even wrong
They said he wouldn’t make it,
Looks like he got to see it after all

[Chorus]
For one last Christmas, one last time,
One last season when the world is right,
One more telling of the story,
One more verse of Silent Night,
They’d give anything so he could have
One last Christmas.
