Christmas in lands of the fir tree and pine,
Christmas in lands of the palm tree and vine;
Christmas where snow peaks
Stand so­lemn and white,
Christmas where corn fields lie sun­ny and bright.


Everywhere, ev­ery­where, Christ­mas to­night!

Christmas where child­ren are hope­ful and gay,
Christmas where old men are pa­tient and gray,
Christmas where peace,
Like a dove in its flight,
Broods over brave men in thick of the fight.


See the young Child who is Mas­ter of all,
No place too great, and no cot­tage too small;
Angels who wel­come
Him sing from the height,
City of David, with roy­al­ty bright!


Let ev­ery heart keep its Christ­mas within
Pity for sor­row, and hat­red for sin.
Care for the weak­est,
And cour­age for right,
Dread of the dark­ness, and love of the light.


Stars of the mid­night which com­pass us round
See a strange glo­ry, and hear a sweet sound;
Look, see the earth is aflame with de­light:
Sons of the morn­ing, re­joice at the sight!
