1. Be merry, Christian men, and sing
It is the Birthday of our King!
With carols sweet His Advent greet
This happy Christmas morning.

Refrain
Be merry, Christian men, and sing,
It is the Birthday of our King!
With carols sweet His Advent greet
This happy Christmas morning.

2. Let garlands green His courts entwine,
And Christmas roses deck His shrine;
Is aught too rare for One so fair
This happy Christmas morning. Refrain.

3. Small wonder that the east is bright!
The choirs of God were there last night,
And still they raise sweet songs of praise
This happy Christmas morning. Refrain.

4. In Bethlehem's stable we may see
Dear Jesus on His mother's knee,
Humility and Deity
This happy Christmas morning. Refrain.

5. O come and worship, and adore
The Child foretold in Prophet's lore,
From evermore to evermore,
This happy Christmas morning. Refrain.
