Glad tidings to the earth they sing:
To us this day a child is given,
To crown us with the joy of heaven.

And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on Earth, good will to men!

Just like the ones I used to know,
Where the tree tops glisten
And children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow...

Let Christmas not become a thing
Merely of merchant's trafficking,
Of tinsel, bell and holly wreath
And surface pleasure, but beneath
The childish glamour, let us find
Nourishment for soul and mind.
Let us follow kinder ways
Through our teeming human maze,
And help the age of peace to come
From a Dreamer's martyrdom.

We hang up garlands everywhere
And bid the tapers twinkle fair,

Back to the same old lives again.

If we kept the Christmas spirit
All the whole year through?

Whatever doubts assail us, or what fears,
Let us hold close one day, remembering
Its poignant meaning for the hearts of men.
Let us get back our childlike faith again.

For Christmas Day;
Twine mistletoe and holly.
For a friendship glows
In winter snows,
And so let's all be jolly!
