A CHRISTMAS SONG
 
div
 

Brightly the logs shall glow,
And the cheering wine shall flow;
Gaily our songs shall raise
From the hearth-fires unto the skies;
Each heart will pulse with pride
As the glad song we hear,
'A merry, merry Christmas and
A bright New Year!'

Chorus: Give me the hand that is willing to give to another,
Give me the heart ever ready to comfort and cheer,
Let youth and age be together in friendship and join in the toast,
'May every Christmas lead to a bright New Year!'

And while we merry make
For old time's sake,
Let us not close the door
To the plea of the homeless poor,
But of our plenty give,
Turning a list'ning ear;
And wish them good fortune and
A bright New Year.

Chorus: Give me the hand that is willing to give to another,
Give me the heart ever ready to comfort and cheer,
Let youth and age be together in friendship and join in the toast,
'May every Christmas lead to a bright New Year!'
