10596. Merry Christmas

Merry, merry, merry, merry, Christmas bells,
O sweetly, sweetly chime;
Let your sweetest music on the breezes swell,
O merry, merry, Christmas time.

1 Christ is born, and He is king,
Let all the earth and angels sing;
While all our hearts and voices blend,
In this our glad refrain; O, [Refrain]

2 Banish every thought of care,
Let mirth and music fill the air;
Our hearts are full of love and joy,
There’s naught can us annoy. O, [Refrain]

3 We are happy, bright, and free,
And we will sing of merry glee;
So come and join us in our song,
And help the mirth along; O, [Refrain]
