O Christmas, You Season of Childlike Delight

1. O Christmas, you season of childlike delight,
We all give you heartiest welcome,
Our voices we raise in a song clear and bright,
To bid you a thousand times welcome.

Our hands we will clap,
As merry as can be;
So glad are we this day to see
We swing around a circle, and curtsey.

2. O wise men who come from lands of the East
We know of the Babe you are seeking;
We pray we may join you in your holy quest,
And follow the star brightly beaming.

3. In joy and thanksgiving I offer my hand,
And ask that you give yours in token,
That we be united by this sacred band:
God's love through the ages unbroken.
