It's Christmas time, rejoice and sing
Bring praises to our God and King,
Who left his throne in heaven to bring
Us mortal men salvation.
He came right down from heaven to earth
To offer all a second birth,
A second chance, a sense of great worth,
A wonderful salvation.
He came to die upon a cross,
And for our gain he suffered loss.
He gave us 'gold' and took all our dross,
That we might know salvation.
He died to take away our sin,
To show us what we mean to him.
No joy compares with what he will bring
To all who seek his salvation.
