Representative Text

1 Christmas boys and girls are we,
Full of happiness, you see;
Good and true we hope to be,
All the way along.

Cheerfully our songs we raise,
Happily our notes of praise,
Merry hearted all our days,
Christmas children we.

2 Santa Claus, our friend so dear,
Brings us something ev’ry year,
His old heart we’d love to cheer;
Merry Christmas days. [Refrain]

3 Best of all is Christ our Lord,
Promised in the Holy Word,
Come to earth, by all adored,
Christ, our Christmas joy. [Refrain]
