Merry Christmas to you all,
To the friends both great and small;
Happy Christmas carols bring
To the Christ the newborn king.


Merry Christmas, merry Christmas,
Merry Christmas everywhere;
Merry Christmas, merry Christmas,
Ringing through the air.

Little girls and little boys,
All aglow with Christmas joys,
Now their happy voices raise,
Singing songs of sweetest praise.


Happy, happy Christmas songs!
Young and old the strain prolong;
Waft the chorus to the sky,
Glory be to God most high.
