Today's Christmas Lyric Line

Pray for the other ones
At Christmastime it's hard, but when you're having fun
There's a world outside your window
And it's a world of dread and fear
Where the only water flowing is the bitter sting of tears
And the Christmas bells that ring there are the clanging
chimes of doom
Well tonight thank God it's them instead of you

Do They Know It's Christmas--Bob Geldof and Midge Ure

While you may not hear 'We are The World' and the other copy cat songs that came after it these, this song making awareness of famine in Africa has become a Christmas Standard in its own right.
