There’s a happy song that’s ringing on the air,
’Tis the song that hearts are singing everywhere;
At the merry Christmas time
Tuneful bells the message chime,
And its holy peace and gladness all may share!
Happy Christmas! Sweetly echo,
Star of Christmas, brightly shine!
Till the world shall hear the message,
And shall seek the Babe divine!
There’s a wondrous star that’s shining o’er the earth,
’Tis the star that tells the world of Jesus’ birth;
Every seeking soul ’twill guide
At the happy Christmas tide,
When the hearts of men are filled with holy mirth!
O the happy song is sounding far and wide,
And the heav’nly star will ever be our guide;
And the Christ who came in love,
Bringing blessings from above,
In the heart that’s pure and truthful will abide!
