Beautiful song of Christmas!
Sung in the long ago,
Bringing the joy of Heaven,
Down to the earth below.
Story of deepest meaning,
Burst forth in music sweet,
While from afar the wise men
Gathered at Jesus’ feet.

Refrain

Blend your voice in the song so sweet,
Bring your gifts to the Savior’s feet.
Let each heart with His praises ring
Pay your homage to Jesus, our prince and king!

Beautiful song of Christmas,
Message of peace, good will,
Sung first by angel chorus,
Sweetly it echoes still.
Prophets of Christ had spoken,
Hope long deferred grew dim,
Till from the glowing heavens,
Angels now told of Him.

Refrain

Beautiful song of Christmas—
Rings in each heart today,
Telling of Christ, the Savior,
Driving the gloom away.
Age, with her silver tresses,
Youth, with her smile and song,
Join in the theme of ages,
With the glad angel throng.

Refrain
