Let peace and joy in each life abide,
The Christ is born at this Christmastide;
O tell it out o’er the world so wide,
The wonderful Christmas story.

Refrain

O tell it out o’er the world so wide,
The glorious news of the Christmastide;
The Christ has come in each heart to abide—
O wonderful Christmas story!

Tho’ years have passed, still the song so dear
Thrills weary hearts with its notes of cheer;
Thro’ starlit skies once again we hear
The wonderful Christmas story.

Refrain

Ring, merry bells, till the darkness glows,
While music sweet o’er the whole earth flows,
Till every soul in its gladness knows
The wonderful Christmas story.

Refrain
