1. This is merry Christmas Day,
All joy is abounding,
Children join the happy lay,
Sweet music is sounding;
Gladdest day of all the year,
Christmas time again is here,
Sing for joy, sing for joy,
Glad Christmas is here.

Christmas, happiest day! 
Christmas, merry and gay!
Ring the joy bells far and near,
For Christmas again is here.

2. This is merry Christmas Day,
Hark! joy-bells are ringing;
In the steeples swing and sway,
Good tidings they're bringing;
Joy and peace their chiming tells,
Mellow, silver-throated bells,
Gaily ring, gaily ring
Sweet silvery bells. Refrain.

3. This is merry Christmas Day,
Cease now from thy sadness;
Ev'ry one is bright and gay,
Come, share in the gladness;
Sing for joy this happy morn,
Christ the Lord today is born,
Sing today, sing today,
Our Saviour is born. Refrain.
