Christmas, Season of Childlike Delight

A Carol from Norway
"O Jul Med Din Glede"
Gustava Kielland

1. O Christmas, you season of childlike delight,
We all give you heartiest welcome;
Our voices we raise in a song clear and bright,
To bid you a thousand times welcome.

Our hands we will clap, clap, clap,
As merry as can be; so glad are we this day to see,
We circle all around, bow and curtsey. ----

2. O wise men who come from the lands of the East,
We know of the Babe you are seeking;
We pray we may join you in your holy quest,
And follow the star brightly beaming.

Our hands we will clap, clap, clap,
As merry as can be; so glad are we this day to see,
We circle all around, bow and curtsey. ----

3. In joy and thanksgiving I offer my hand,
And ask that you give yours in token,
That we be united by this sacred band:
God's love through the ages unbroken.

Our hands we will clap, clap, clap,
As merry as can be; so glad are we this day to see,
We circle all around, bow and curtsey.
