1 Cheerily, cheerily, sing we all,
On Christmas Eve the shadows fall;
On Christmas morn the sunlight breaks,
And all the world to gladness wakes.
The leaves are dead, the birds are fled,
The little brooks’ tongues are tied with cold;
But bells may ring, and children sing,
For bright and warm is our Shepherd’s fold.

Refrain:
Cheerily, cheerily sing we all,
For the day of the year, it draweth near,
We children love our own to call,
Christmas, sweet Christmas, welcome here;
O day of days most dear, most dear,
Christmas, sweet Christmas, welcome here!

2 Heavily hung is our Christmas tree,
’Tis burdened well for you and me;
The hemlock branches piled with snow
In native woods bend not so low.
God giveth all; the ravens call,
He heareth them: so let us begin;
He hears alway when children pray,
For He Himself a child has been. [Refrain]

3 Help us, dear Lord, lest we selfish be:
All hearts are not so glad as we;
Remember then Thy poor tonight,
And flood their darkness with the light.
The hungry feed, the wanderer lead,
The sorrowing souls, the captive free;
And think, we pray, on this glad day,
Of those who have no Christmas tree. [Refrain]
