Beautiful Christ­mas, wel­come thy com­ing,
Day filled with plea­sure and cheer;
Jewel the fair­est, gem of the rar­est
Crowning the gold­en year.


Welcome the day to our hearts ev­er dear,
Day of re­joic­ing now is here;
Hail, hap­py morn­ing, wel­come thy dawn­ing,
Jesus is born the Sav­ior in Beth­le­hem.

Beautiful Christ­mas, bright day of glad­ness,
Gladly thy prais­es we sing;
Hail hap­py morn­ing, wel­come thy dawn­ing,
Peace and good will to bring.


Beautiful Christ­mas, time of re­joic­ing,
Day when our hearts are aglow;
Richest of trea­sure, giv’n with­out mea­sure,
Freely dost thou be­stow.
