1. Waft the tidings far and near,
Merry, merry Christmas time;
Ring it out with right good cheer,
Merry, merry Christmas time.
Merrily we welcome Christmas day,
Cherrily we sing our Christmas lay,
List the merry strains from far away
Merry, merry Christmas time.

Refrain:
Waft the tidings far and near,
Merry, merry Christmas time,
Right it out with right good cheer,
Merry, merry Christmas time.

2.Welcome, welcome, once a year,
Merry, merry Christmas time;
Here it ringing loud and clear,
Merry, merry Christmas time.
It is not the time for us to mourn,
Cast away all gloom, 'tis Christmas morn,
Wake from earthly sleep, for Christ is born,
Merry, merry Christmas time. Refrain

3. Sing aloud with holy glee,
Merry, merry Christmas time;
Tell it out o'er land and sea,
Merry, merry Christmas time.
Ring the merry bells in tuneful lay,
Spread the joyful news, 'tis Christmas day,
Ev'ry one is happy, blithe and gay,
Merry, merry Christmas time. Refrain
