1. Fair Christmas Day has come again,
With gladness and with cheer,
With greetings fond and loving gifts,
From friends and kindred dear.
Then let us sing with hearts of glee,
Our praise and thanks right merrily,
For Christmas Day is here,
Fair Christmas ever here.

2. If ev'ry day were Christmas Day,
How bright the world would be,
With kindly thoughts and gentle words,
And actions brotherly!
Then care and strife would far depart,
And joy would reign in ev'ry heart,
With Christmas ever here,
Fair Christmas ever here.

3. 'Tis we ourselves make Christmas Day,
And not the changing year.
Our words of love, our actions kind,
Will bring it ever near.
The seasons come, the seasons go,
If Christian love abide below,
Then Christmas Day is here,
Fair Christmas Day is here.
