1 Good Christian people all,
A merry Christmas day;
Hark how the bells do call!
Arise and come away!

Come see the wondrous thing
The angels’ lips reveal!
And let the joy-bells ring
A welcome to the newborn King,
With a merry, merry Christmas peal,
With a merry Christmas peal,
Noel! Noel! Noel!
Let all upon the earth that dwell,
Sing praises to Emmanuel:
Noel! Noel! Noel!

2 Oh, praise the King of Heav’n!
For on this blessèd morn
To us a son is giv’n,
To us a child is born! [Refrain]

3 Springs forth a fruitful rod
From Jesse’s royal stem,
And Christ, incarnate God,
Is born at Bethlehem. [Refrain]

4 Enwrapt in swathing bands,
And in a manger laid,
Behold Him, by whose hands
The heav’ns and earth were made. [Refrain]
