Let every heart now dance with joy,
For Christmas comes again;
Sing "Glory to be God on high,
On earth good will to men!"

1. Though wintry cold may chill the skies,
And earth be dark and bare;
Our Christmas light within shines bright,
And love reigns everywhere. Chorus

2. Though summer trees are leafless all,
And gray on Nature's brow;
Our Christmas tree now sparkling see,
With lights on every bough! Chorus

3. Though fields are stripped of Autumn fruits,
And snow-storms end the fall;
By loving hands well loaded, stands,
Our Tree, so strong and tall! Chorus

4. No room was found for Christ the King,
When he was born of yore;
But hearts now yearn for His return,
To reign for evermore! Chorus

5. No love like His was ever known,
Our earthly life to share;
It is His light makes Christmas bright.
His love reigns everywhere! Chorus
