1. Simple Carollers are we,
Brethren in communion;
Jesus Christ's Nativity
Is our bond of union.
Wine or wassail heed we not,
Precious gifts or guerdon;
Him we sing Who, without blot,
Bore our sin's deep burden.

2. Though the star o'er Bethlehem's plan,
Sages watch no longer;
While the swift years wax and wane,
Christian love grows stronger;
Over every land and sea
Speeds the Gospel story;
This is Christ's Nativity,
Give Him praise and glory.
