Cheerily hail the Christmas morn,
Carol a tuneful lay;
Welcome the infant Savior born,
Greet Him with joy today.

Refrain

Merrily now the bells we hear,
Chiming in chorus sweet and clear,
Gather and sing, gather and sing,
Welcome the children’s King.

Wonderful song of holy mirth,
Sweeping along the sky;
Glory to God, and peace on earth,
Glory to God on high.

Refrain

Over the world good news proclaim,
Heralds of love, away;
Jesus the Lord has come to reign,
Tell it with joy today.
