Lyrics

Refrain

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.

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

Refrain

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

Refrain

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.
