Another Christmas eve is here,
Eve that heralds the brightest day of earth;
'Tis a day of joy, and of happy good cheer,
And our hearts shall fill with purest of mirth;
We remember with joy and gladness to-night,
How yet for us all the star shineth bright.
Centuries have flown since that eventful eve,
When the angels sang o'er Bethlehem's plain;
The world in its sorrow, love would not leave,
Nor the race of man to since dark domain;
The refrain of that song has not yet died away.
Buyt now leads the world up Heaven's bright way.
May the star still shine, and the song be sung,
The star and the song shall lighten our way;
In this blessed light, shall our battles be won,
And from the right path, our feet shall not stray;
When another Christmas shall come to us no more,
We'll join in Heaven's Christmas song upon the other shore.
