Joy! joy! joy! So happy now are we,
Sing! sing! sing! Our hearts are full of glee,
Clap! clap! clap! so joyously and free,
Because it is Christmas time.

1 Little children, joyful sing
Praises to your Savior King;
Let the air with music ring,
This happy, happy Christmas time. [Refrain]

2 Christmas gifts for great and small,
Christ the greatest gift of all;
May His blessings on us fall
This merry, merry, Christmas time. [Refrain]

3 Jesus comes to bring us peace,
From all pain and care release;
Ne’er His reign on earth shall cease,
Be glad for merry Christmas time. [Refrain]
