Verse 1

I am so glad each Christmas Eve, the night of Jesus' birth!

Then like the sun the star shone forth, and angels sang on earth.

 

Verse 2

The little child in Bethlehem, he was a king indeed!

For he came down from heav'n above to help a world in need.

 

Verse 3

He dwells again in heaven's realm, the Son of God today;

And still he loves his little ones and hears them when they pray.

 

Verse 4

I am so glad each Christmas Eve! His praises then I sing;

He opens now for ev'ry child the palace of the king.

 

Verse 5

And so I love each Christmas Eve, and I love Jesus too;

And that he loves me ev'ry day I know so well is true.

Angels we have heard on high, sweetly singing o'er the plains,

And the mountains in reply, echoing their joyous strains.

Shepherds, why this jubilee? Why your joyous strains prolong?

What the gladsome tidings be which inspire your heav'nly song? (To Refrain)

 

Verse 3

Come to Bethlehem and see him whose birth the angels sing;

Come, adore on bended knee Christ the Lord, the newborn king. (To Refrain)
