Representative Text

1 ’Tis merry, merry Christmas time,
It comes again with sweetest chime;
The crystal bells, they ring so free,
Our hearts are thrilled with melody.

Refrain:
’Tis merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas time,
’Tis merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas time,
It comes again with sweetest chime,
The Christmas chine.

2 Ring out, O stars, the sweet refrain,
Ye angel choirs repeat again
The song of peace o’er all the earth,
The tidings of the Savior’s birth. [Refrain]

3 Sing we the song—the anthem raise,
With angel choirs His name to praise;
He brings the world goodwill and peace,
And bids our strife forever cease. [Refrain]

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
