1 Sing we all merrily, Christmas is here—
Day that we love best of days in the year;
Bring forth the holly, the box and the bay,
Deck out the cottage for glad Christmas day.

Refrain:
Christmas is here, Christmas is here,
Sing we all merrily, Christmas is here;
Christmas is here, Christmas is here,
Sing we all merrily, Christmas is here.

2 Sing we all joyfully, sing of Christ’s birth,
Sing what the angels sang, "Peace upon earth!"
Parents and children in bright garments dressed,
Hasten to church to sing praise with the rest. [Refrain]

3 Sing we all merrily, bring out good cheer,
Think of the absent, and wish they were here;
Pray for our armies by land and by sea,
Our brave defenders, the noble and free. [Refrain]

4 Sing we all merrily, draw round the fire,
Father and mother, and grandson and sire;
Tell of the mercies to every one given,
Talk of the dear ones now mansioned in Heav’n. [Refrain]

5 Sing we all merrily, Christmas is here,
Day that we love best of days in the year;
Sisters and brothers, and friends far away,
O how we wish they were with us today! [Refrain]
