Representative Text

1 Merry, merry Christmas!
Merry, merry Christmas!
Merry, merry Christmas!
One and all;
Hear again the wondrous story,
How the Lord, the King of Glory,
Left his shining home on high,
Came to suffer and to die,
Came to save a world from woe,
All because he loved us so.
Come, then, let us raise,
One glad song of praise,
Praise to him by whom the day we call;
Wishing verily,
Bidding merrily,
In his name a "merry Christmas," all!
Merry, merry Christmas!
Merry, merry Christmas!
Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas, all!
Merry, merry Christmas!
Merry, merry Christmas!
Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas, all!

2 Merry, merry Christmas!
Merry, merry Christmas!
Merry, merry Christmas!
One and all;
Christ the Savior, high and holy,
Heeds the lofty and the lowly;
He, the Life, the Truth, the Way,
Will rejoice with us to-day.
Will his choicest gifts bestow,
All because he loved us so.
Come, then, let us raise,
One glad song of praise,
Praise to him by whom the day we call;
Wishing verily,
Bidding merrily,
In his name a "merry Christmas," all!
Merry, merry Christmas!
Merry, merry Christmas!
Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas, all!
Merry, merry Christmas!
Merry, merry Christmas!
Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas, all!

He was converted at a revival meeting at age twelve. Bliss became an itinerant music teacher, making house calls on horseback during the winter, and during the summer attending the Normal Academy of Music in Genesco, New York.
