Lyrics:

The first good joy that Christmas brings it is the joy of one
To see the star of Bethlehem that shone on Mary’s son
That shone on Mary’s son good friends
That shone on Mary’s son
To see the star of Bethlehem that shone on Mary’s son

O little town of Bethlehem
How still we see thee lie
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by
Yet in thy dark streets shineth
The everlasting light
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight

The next good joy that Christmas brings, it is the joy of two
When carols ring on Christmas day to tell the tale a new
To tell the tale a new good friends, to tell the tale a new
When carols ring on Christmas day to tell the tale a new

Deck the halls with boughs of holly
Fa, la la la la la la la la la la la la la
Tis the season to be jolly
Fa, la la la la la la la la la la la la la

Don we now our gay apparel
Fa la la la la la la la la la la la la la
Troll the ancient Yuletide Carol
Fa la la la la la la la la la la la la la

The next good joy that Christmas brings, it is the joy of four
Of shepherds keeping watch that night, beside the stable door
Of shepherds keeping watch that night, beside the stable door

The first noŽl the angels did say
Was to certain poor shepherds
On In fields where they lay
In fields where they lay
Keeping their sheep
On a cold winter’s night
That was so deep
NoŽl, noŽl, noŽl, noŽl
Born is the king of Israel

The greatest joy that Christmas brings it is the joy of five
The message of good will to man forever kept alive
Forever kept alive good friends, forever kept alive
The message of good will to man forever kept alive
