6123. Sing, Sing for Christmas!

1. Sing, sing for Christmas!
Welcome, happy day!
For Christ is born our Savior,
To take our sins away.
Sing, sing a joyful song,
Loud and clear today;
To praise our Lord and Savior,
Who in a manger lay.

Refrain
Sing, sing for Christmas,
Welcome, happy day!
For Christ is born our Savior,
To take our sins away.

2. Tell, tell the story
Of the wondrous night,
When shepherds who were watching
Their flocks till morning light,
Saw angel hosts from Heav’n,
Heard the angel voice,
And so were told the tidings
Which make the world rejoice. [Refrain]

3. Soft, softly shining,
Stars were in the sky,
And silver fell the moonlight
On hill and mountain high,
When suddenly the night
Shone as bright midday,
With angel hosts who herald
The reign of peace for aye. [Refrain]

4. Hark, hear them singing,
Singing in the sky,
Be worship, honor, glory,
And praise to God on high!
Peace, peace, goodwill to men
Born the Child from Heav’n!
The Christ, the Lord, the Savior
The Son to you is giv’n! [Refrain]

5. Sing, sing for Christmas!
Echo, earth, the cry,
Of worship, honor, glory,
And praise to God on high!
Sing, sing the joyful song,
Let it never cease,
Of glory in the highest,
On earth, good will and peace. [Refrain]
