TIS CHRISTMAS DAY




The bells are sweetly chiming,
Their music fills the air;
What message do they bring us
Upon this morning fair?
“’Tis Christmas day!”
the glad bells say,

“A Savior now is born,
By God’s great love sent from above
To cheer the world forlorn.”
O wondrous birth! let all the earth
Receive the newborn King;
Oh, let us now with sacred vow
Our loyal tribute bring.



What mean these gifts abundant
That on this day we see?
For surely they mean something;
What may their import be?
“’Tis Christmas day!”
these tokens say,

“A Savior now is born,
By God’s great love sent from above
To cheer the world forlorn.”
O wondrous birth! let all the earth
Receive the newborn King;
Oh, let us now with sacred vow
Our loyal tribute bring.



And why these smiling faces
Around the pretty tree?
What mean these joyous carols?
Pray tell us if you please.
“’Tis Christmas day!”
these things all say,

“A Savior now is born,
By God’s great love sent from above
To cheer the world forlorn.”
O wondrous birth! let all the earth
Receive the newborn King;
Oh, let us now with sacred vow
Our loyal tribute bring.
