Waft The Tidings Far And Near


Waft the tidings far and near,
Merry, merry Christmas time;
Ring it out with right good cheer,
Merry, merry Christmas time.
Merrily we welcome Christmas day,
Cheerily we sing our Christmas lay;
List the merry strains from far away,
Merry, merry Christmas time.

Refrain:
Waft the tidings far and near,
Merry, merry Christmas time;
Ring it out with right good cheer,
Merry, merry Christmas time.

Welcome, welcome, once a year,
Merry, merry Christmas time;
Hear it ringing loud and clear,
Merry, merry Christmas time.
It is not the time for us to mourn,
Cast away all gloom, ’tis Christmas morn;
Wake from earthly sleep, for Christ is born,
Merry, merry Christmas time. [Refrain]

Sing aloud with holy glee,
Merry, merry Christmas time;
Tell it out o’er land and sea,
Merry, merry Christmas time.
Ring the merry bells in tuneful lay,
Spread the joyful news, ’tis Christmas day;
Everyone is happy, blithe and gay,
Merry, merry Christmas time. [Refrain]
