Lyrics

Of all the days of gladness,
We little children say
That none is half so happy
As merry Christmas day.
With stockings in the morning,
And Christmas trees at night,
And all the glad surprises,
The secrets brought to light.

And yet it is not only
Because of gift and toy,
That Christmas time is happy;
For sweeter is the joy
That everyone is loving
And kind to all the rest,
Remembering the Christ Child,
The little Christmas Guest.
