1. The bells ring in our Christmas Fest,
They're tolling for our honored Guest.
The gifts He brought our cottage small
Were joy and peace in the New Year for all.

2. Come along with us to David's town
Where angels sang in heavenly round.
Let's go to the fields where shepherds heard
The Good News from God's Holy Word.

3. The world may honor power and gold;
To you they are bust dust and mold!
Laid in a manger, swaddled in cloth,
Eternal life for us you brought.

4. Come Jesus, be our cottage guest;
Within us keep thy Christmas Fest!
With David's harp our voices we'll raise;
Our grateful hearts will sing They praise.
