1 Beautiful Christmas, welcome thy coming,
Day filled with pleasure and cheer,
Jewel the fairest, gem of the rarest
Crowning the golden year.

Welcome the day to our hearts ever dear,
Day of rejoicing now is here,
Hail, happy morning, welcome thy dawning,
Jesus is born the Saviour in Bethlehem.

2 Beautiful Christmas, bright day of gladness,
Gladly thy praises we sing;
Hail happy morning, welcome thy dawning,
Peace and good will to bring. [Refrain]

3 Beautiful Christmas, time of rejoicing,
Day when our hearts are aglow;
Richest of treasure, giv’n without measure,
Freely dost thou bestow. [Refrain]
