1. God bless you, all good Christian men,
    Let nothing you dismay,
For Jesus Christ, our Savior dear,
    Was born on Christmas day
    Was born on Christmas day.

2. The dawn rose red on Bethlehem,
    The stars shone through the gray,
When Jesus Christ, our Savior dear,
    Was born on Christmas day
    Was born on Christmas day.

3. God bless you, little children all,
    Let nothing you affright,
For Jesus Christ, your Savior dear,
    Was born this happy night.
    Was born this happy night.

4. Along the hills' of Galilee
    The white flocks sleeping lay,
When Christ, the Child of Nazareth,
    Was born on Christmas day
    Was born on Christmas day.

5. God bless you, all good Christian folk, '
    Upon this blessed morn;
The Lord of all sweet, earnest souls'
    Was of a virgin born.
    Was of a virgin born.

6. Now all your sorrows He doth heal,
    Your sins He takes away,
For Jesus Christ, our Savior dear,
    Was born on Christmas day.
    Was born on Christmas day.
