Christmas bells are ringing,
White robed choirs are singing
All in joyful exultation;
Tinseled trees they glisten,
Little children listen
Filled with eager expectations.
Far and near o'er the air
Comes glad singing voices,
Young and old rejoices.

May goodwill and gladness
Take the place of sadness,
As the yuletide season greets us;
May it in some measure
Give us inward pleasure,
And with goodly favours treat us;
May each one old and young
Sing with heart and voices
As our land rejoices.

Christmas, 1950
