Lyrics:

1. The feelings of Yuletide are splendors of the soul,
warm lovely tenderness, long life's gentle glow.

For This Our Christ Was Born to show us of his love,
to help us through our trials, and fill us from above,
and fill our hearts with love, and fill us from above.

2. Our hearts we give to thee, so full our joy abounds;
from this our love extends to the world around.

For This Our Christ Was Born to show us of his love,
to help us through our trials, and fill us from above,
and fill our hearts with love, and fill us from above.

[Note: For use in any season, for the fourth word, substitute the word 'family' for 'Yuletide.']
