Christmas Song






LYDIA A.C. WARD

Why do bells for Christmas ring?
Why do little children sing?

Once a lovely, shining star,
Seen by shepherds from afar,
Gently moved until its light
Made a manger-cradle bright.

There a darling baby lay
Pillowed soft upon the hay.
And his mother sang and smiled,
This is Christ, the holy child.

So the bells for Christmas ring,
So the little children sing.
