1 Christmas greetings, Christmas joy
For the new-born baby Boy!
And for Jesus now we sing,
Born a baby, born a King.

2 Born to laugh and born to cry,
Born to live and born to die;
Born to rise up from the grave,
Born for sinners, born to save.

3 When the proper time had come
God gave us His only Son;
For the new-born baby Boy
Christmas greetings, Christmas joy!
