Representative Text

1 Carol, Christian children,
Let your voices ring;
Is not this the birthday
Of our heav’nly king?

Jesus unto us is born!
Now the dawning sweetly
Breaks on Christmas morn.

2 Choirs of holy angels
Swell the mighty throng
Solemnly at midnight,
Chanting loud and long! [Refrain]

3 Carol, Christian children,
For ’tis Christmas time,
And the bells are ringing
Merrily their chime! [Refrain]
