The moon is shining in the sky
The stars are twinkling down
The frost is glistening on the grass
And on the rooftops ’round
And I am sitting in my bed
And thinking of the way
One night turned all nights upside down
And made this Christmas Day.
God’s blessing be on you, my friend
Your face I may not see
But in this blessed Christmastime
I know that you’re with me.
For Earth and Heaven both are one
Since that one Easter Day–
So let us dance the frosty lanes,
Singing of Christmas Day.
