Representative Text

1 Come now, and let us, once again,
Twine wreaths of holly and of hay;
And with glad hearts in lofty strain,
Sing, "Christ is born anew today."
Then loud and long we’ll raise the song,
Our Christ is born anew today,
Our Christ is born anew today.

2 As to the shepherds on the plain,
The voice of angels from on high
Bore the glad song, "Good will to men,"
On earth let peace be ever nigh:
The peace of Heav’n to mortals giv’n,
When Christ was born on Christmas day,
When Christ was born on Christmas day.

3 To Him above, all glory yield,
Whose greatest gift has crowned our days;
And as we twine our Christmas wreath,
We’ll weave therein both love and praise:
Our hearts we’ll bring to Christ our king,
Who’s born anew for us today,
Who’s born anew for us today.
