LYRICS

Take the words make the words fill the hearts of men
Though words are mere shadows of what happened then
When heaven’s great treasure descended to man
That time-honoured night when the carols began

Seek the words speak the words time has been long
Since the world danced to the angels’ glad song
But each year brings closer that first year anew
The older the mem’ry the more it rings true

He inspired the carols that we humble mortals
Could sing in choirs sounding like angels…
Sounding almost like angels

But in love’s bright music we honour his birth
Scarcely believing he once graced this earth

Lend the words blend the words turn them into song
Then set them to music where they best belong
Exalting in wonder that first glimpse of him
From manger a radiance the world could not dim

Take the words make the words fill the hearts of men
Though words are mere shadows of what happened then
When heaven’s great treasure descended to man
That time-honoured night when the carols began

That time-honoured night when the carols began
