COME, CHRISTMAS, COME!

Come, Christmas, come!
Sprinkle your spirit in every portion
of the land.
Peal your bells with vigor
and with might,
so that every ear may hear!
Shine your luminous light in every dark corner
of the universe.
Let goodwill be felt in all the regions
of the world.
Fill each heart with love.


Come, Christmas, come!
Lend your joy to all,
if only for a while.
Fill the air with hope for days
that lie ahead.
Grant glorious reprieve from
uncertainty and fear.
Bring surcease to sorrow in every heart
that cries.

Come, Christmas, come!
Tie your ribbon around the world
and hang your wreath
on every being.
Join all nations in harmony
beneath your mistletoe of love,
and then, in exaltation,
may the dove of peace sing!

Alleluia! Alleluia!
