Sing We Merry Christmas

Lyrics

(C. T. Bowen)

1. Sing we merry Christmas,
Christmas blithe and free,
Time of holy gladness,
Mirth and minstrelsy.
Hark! The merry church bells
Ringing joyously;
Hailing with sweet music
Christ’s nativity.

2. Haste we to His temple,
Wreath our garlands green;
Deck each arch and column,
Stall and alter-screen:
Gloria in excelsis
Hark, the angels sing!
Gloria in excelsis
To our Infant King.

3. Priest and choir and people,
Join in concert all;
Sing your loudest praises
At our festival.
Joy for us poor exiles,
On this happy morn;
Jesus Christ Emmanuel
Of David’s line was born.
