1 Children, can you truly tell,
Do you know the story well,
Every girl and every boy,
Why the angels sang for joy

On the Christmas morning,
On the Christmas morning?

2 Yes, we know the story well;
Listen now, and hear us tell
Every little girl and boy,
Why the angels sang for joy [Refrain]

3 Shepherds sat upon the ground,
Fleecy flocks lay scattered round,
When a brightness filled the sky,
And a song was heard on high [Refrain]

4 Joy and peace the angels sang,
Far the pleasant echoes rang;
Peace on earth, to men good will,
Hark! the angels sing it still [Refrain]

5 For a little babe this day,
Cradled in a manger lay;
Born on earth our Lord to be,
This the wondering angels see [Refrain]
