1 I am so glad each Christmas Eve,
The night of Jesus’ birth!
Then like the sun the Star shone forth,
And angels sang on earth.
2 The little Child in Bethlehem,
He was a King indeed!
For he came down from heaven above
To help a world in need.
3 He dwells again in heaven’s realm,
The Son of God today;
And still he loves his little ones
And hears them when they pray.
4 I am so glad on Christmas Eve!
His praises then I sing;
He opens now for every child
The palace of the king.
5 When mother trims the Christmas tree
Which fills the room with light,
She tells me of the wondrous Star
That made the dark world bright.
6 She says the Star is shining still,
And never will grow dim;
And if it shines upon my way
It leads me up to him.
7 And so I love each Christmas Eve,
And I love Jesus, too;
And that he loves me every day
I know so well is true.
