The Hymns and Carols of Christmas

Christmas Eve Is Here

Old French

1. Christmas Eve is here,
See, the moon is waking!
Christmas Eve is here,
Clear and cold the night.
Trudging thro' the snow,
Go the quiet people;
Trudging thro' the snow,
Go the quiet people.
Christmas Eve is here,
Clear and cold the night.

2. People on the road
Carry lighted lanters;
See their bobbing lights
Lead the way to church.
There they will keep watch
Til the hour of midnight;
There they will keep watch
Till the hour of midnight,
When the bells will ring
Joyous melodies.

3. Hear the ringing bells
Swinging far their music,
Hear the ringing bells
Playing merry chimes!
Christmas Day is here,
Day of joy and gladness;
Christmas Day is fhere,
Day of joy and gladness,
Bringing peace on earth,
And goodwill to men.
