1 When God from heaven to earth came down
on Christmas Day, on Christmas Day,
the songs rang out in Bethlehem town
on Christmas Day in the morning.

2 For Christ was born to save us all,
on Christmas Day, on Christmas Day,
and laid within a manger stall
on Christmas Day in the morning.

3 The shepherds heard the angels sing
on Christmas Day, on Christmas Day,
to tell them of the saviour-king
on Christmas Day in the morning.

4 Now joy is ours and all is well,
on Christmas Day, on Christmas Day,
so sound the organ, chime the bell
on Christmas Day in the morning.
