    Round the earth a message runs:
    Awake, awake, you drowsy ones!
    Now leaps the sap in every stem
    To chant the winter's requiem.
    No more of sloth and dullness sing:
    Sing love, sing joy, for Christ is King!


    Round the earth a message runs:
    Arise, arise, you doleful ones!
    Cast off your chains, you captives all
    Who long have lain in sorrow's thrall.
    No more of grief and anguish sing:
    Sing love, sing joy, for Christ is King!


    Round the earth a message runs:
    For shame, for shame, you brawling ones!
    You shall more true adventure find
    In friendliness of heart and mind.
    No more of hate and envy sing:
    Sing love, sing joy, for Christ is King!


    Round the earth a message runs:
    Rejoice, rejoice, you happy ones!
    Now fall the gods of wrath and pain,
    Now comes your Prince of Joy to reign;
    To him your brave allegiance sing:
    Sing love, sing joy, for Christ is King!
