The Christmas Lyrics Poem


Let’s hear those sleigh bells ringing
Do you hear what I hear?
Please have snow and mistletoe
Where the treetops glisten
It’s up to your knees out there
On a cold winter’s night that was so deep
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Laughing all the way

Tidings of comfort and joy
We won’t go until we get some
Let your heart be light
Let nothing you dismay
If you want to be happy in a million ways
From now on our troubles will be out of sight
If the fates allow


Born the king of angels
Let every heart prepare him room
The thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
I am a poor boy too
All is calm, all is bright
Peace on earth and mercy mild
Star of wonder, star of night
And heaven and nature sing


I just want you for my own
More than you will ever know
When those blue teardrops start falling
We’ll face, unafraid, the plans that we made
If only in my dreams

Mele Kalikimaka
Feliz Navidad
And a partridge in a pear tree
