1 Happy hearts light and gay,
Have we children on this day;
Christ is born, let us sing
Praises to our King.

Happily we’ll gladly sing
Alleluias to our King,
Bethlehem’s Babe, born today—
Sing our merry lay.

2 Gentle hearts, ever fair,
Beating with the love we bear;
Precious buds, full of life,
Keep us from all strife. [Refrain]

3 Mary’s Child, Bethlehem’s babe,
Little children He will save;
Every heart may be bright,
Jesus gives the light. [Refrain]

4 Holy babe, every day
Keep us in the narrow way,
Help us all strive to be
Thine eternally. [Refrain]
