The Waits






MARGARET DELAND

At the break of Christmas Day,
Through the frosty starlight ringing,
Faint and sweet and far away,
Comes the sound of children, singing,
Chanting, singing,
_Cease to mourn,
For Christ is born,
Peace and joy to all men bringing!_

Careless that the chill winds blow,
Growing stronger, sweeter, clearer,
Noiseless footfalls in the snow
Bring the happy voices nearer;
Hear them singing,
_Winter's drear,
But Christ is here,
Mirth and gladness with Him bringing!_

Merry Christmas! hear them say,
As the East is growing lighter;
May the joy of Christmas Day
Make your whole year gladder, brighter!
Join their singing,
_To each home
Our Christ has come,
All Love's treasures with Him bringing!_
