Lyrics:
1.  Joyful, joyful, joyful, joyful, 
    Christmas day is here;
    Ding, ding, dong, dong,
    Hear the church bells ring.
    Chime throughout the land,
    He was born in Bethlehem;
    Baby Jesus came into this world on Christmas day.
    Happy, happy, happy, happy,
    Christmas day is here;
    Ding, ding, dong, dong,
    Hear the church bells ring.

2.  Joyful, happy, joyful, happy,
    Christmas day is here;
    Ding, ding, dong, dong,
    Christmas day is here.
    Chime throughout the land,
    He was born in Bethlehem;
    Baby Jesus came into this world on Christmas day.
    Sing together, celebrate; 
    Christ is born today.
    Ding, ding, dong, dong,
    Christmas day is here.
