11634. 'Round Our Sparkling Christmas Tree

1 ’Round our sparkling Christmas tree,
Let our gladsome voices ring;
Children of the Lord are we,
In His praise our hymn we sing.

Glory be to God on high,
Peace on earth, good will to men;
Let us join the angel band,
Shout aloud the glad refrain.

2 Thanks to Him whose tender love
In the wintry midnight wild,
Sent the Savior from above,
Gentle Jesus, holy Child. [Refrain]

3 Heav’n with joy and music rang,
Silvery stars broke silence then;
Angel voices greeting sang—
Peace on earth, good will to men. [Refrain]

4 Now once more the night comes round,
Now the hour once more draws near;
When that anthem’s holy sound,
Falls on fancy’s listening ear. [Refrain]

5 On our hearts, oh let it thrill,
Jesus there be born again;
And with peace our bosoms fill,
Peace on earth, good will to men. [Refrain]
