1. Sing we now of Christmas,
Noel sing we here.
Sing our grateful praises
To the maid so dear.

Sing we Noel!
The King is born, Noel!
Sing we now of Christmas.
Sing we here, Noel!

2. From the Eastern kingdoms
Come the wise men far.
Bearing ancient treasure,
Following yonder star. Chorus

3. From the distant mountains,
Hear the trumpet sound.
With angelic blessings
On the silent town. Chorus

4. Come let us surround Him
On this magic night.
Gather here around Him,
Wondrous Babe of light. Chorus
