76. Christmas Comes Again

1 Christmas comes again,
And the merry, merry church bells ring,
Christmas comes again,
Loud the happy little children sing.
Now "Glory be to God on high,"
Resounds once more thro’ earth and sky;

Chorus:
For Christmas comes again,
And the merry, merry church bells ring,
Christmas comes again,
Loud the happy little children sing.

2 Christmas comes again!
See the shepherds on their winding way,
Christmas comes again,
At their feet the little lambkins play.
Three Wise Men from the East are there,
And bring their gifts both rich and rare; [Chorus]

3 Christmas comes again!
Was there ever such a glorious morn?
Christmas comes again!
Tell to everybody "Christ is born!"
All round the world let echoes fly
And never let that chorus die: [Chorus]

4 Christmas comes again!
Let the Tree with lighted tapers shine!
Christmas comes again!
All its pretty things are yours and mine!
Unload the gifts from every bough,
And give us all our presents now! [Chorus]
