1. Soft falls the snow upon the ground,
So pure and white;
O may our hearts as pure be found
This Christmas night.
For Christ is born that we may be
From sin set free, set free,
For Christ is born that we may be
From sin set free, from sin set free.

2. The holly with its prickly thorn
And berries red,
Tells of the crown the Lord hath worn,
And blood He shed.
For Christ hath died that we might be,
From sin set free, set free,
For Christ hath died that we might be
From sin set free, from sin set free.

3. The golden stars in heaven shine
This Christmas night,
And tell us of the Star Divine,
guiding a-right,
To Him who came that we might be
From sin set free, set free,
To Him who came that we might be,
From sin set free, from sin set free.

4. The Christmas bells all joyful chime,
The choirs all sing
A joyful song at Christmas time;
For Christ the King
Was born today that we might be
From sin set free, from sin set free,
Was born today that we might be
From sin set free, from sin set free.
