1. Christmas time is come again,
    Christmas pleasures bringing;
Let us join our voices now,
    And Christmas songs be singing.
Years ago, one starry night,
    Thus the story's given
Angels bands, o'er Bethlehem's plains,
    Sand the songs of heaven.

Chorus:
Glory be to God on high!
    Peace, good will to mortals!
Christ the Lord is born tonight,
    Heav'n throws wide its portals.

2. Angels sang; let men reply,
    And children join their voices;
Raise the chorus loud and high,
    Earth and heav'n rejoices.
When we reach that happy place,
    Joyous praises bringing,
Then, before our Father's face,
    We shall still be singing. Chorus
