1. Now blazing yule logs crown the hearth,
Diffusing warmth with light and mirth;
Now oft the Christmas tale is told
Of Christmas deeds in days of old.

Rejoice, our Saviour, He was born
On Christmas day in the morning.

2. Now holly boughs bedeck the wall,
In lowly cot and lofty hall;
Now Christmas gambols, quaint and rare,
Divert the sad, and banish care. Chorus

3. Then, open wide the stately hall,
And banquet spread for great and small;
And we, with garlands gay, will bring
The tuneful harp, and ever sing. Chorus
