1 Carol, carol sweet and cheerily,
Happy voices ringing;
Ev’ry heart is joining merrily,
Songs of gladness singing;
See afar the shadows vanishing!
Light is upward springing,
Gloom and shadows swiftly banishing—
Earth is glad today!

Hark the sound, hark the sound of Nature’s voice,
Join O heart to sing,
Carols to the King;
Hark the sound, hark the sound of Nature’s voice,
Singing merrily, singing cheerily,
Carols to the King.

2 Christ our King is great and glorious,
Tell the wondrous story,
Nature sings in strains victorious,
Of his pow’r and glory;
Sing with gladness—sing unitedly;
Love is smiling o’er thee!
Christ is reigning—sing delightedly,
Wonderful his sway! [Refrain]
