1. Hush, hush, hush!
Behold the wondrous Light!
Who will appear? The Christ-child dear,
For this, you know, is Holy night.
For this, you know, is Holy night.

2. Hark, hark, hark!
He's knocking at the door:
Hear His bell ring; for joy we sing:
Come quick, for we can wait no more.
Come quick, for we can wait no more.

3. Yes, yes, yes,
We love Thee one and all;
With gifts so bright this Christmas night,
Dear Jesus, bless us, great and small.
Dear Jesus, bless us, great and small.

4. Thanks, thanks, thanks,
O Child, we love so well
We children here pray, Savior dear,
Thou in our heart alone wilt dwell.
Thou in our heart alone wilt dwell.
