Lyrics:

1. The symbols of Christmas within us abound,
    Each with it's purpose, impressions profound.
    They serve to remind us of God's holy plan
    When a babe in a manger was born among man.
    The birth of the Christ child, eternal design;
    Sa-vior, oh Savior, Redeemer divine!

2. The birth of the Christ child the carols acclaim.
    The bells peal with rapture, Messiah proclaim.
     Hosannahs still echo, the angels still sing,
     As they herald the news of the newborn King.
     The birth of the Christ child, eternal design;
     Savior, oh Savior, Redeemer divine!

3. Let symbols of Christmas bring joy to our life;
    Let bright lights bring gladness and free us from strife.
     May tokens we give foster feelings sublime
     As we ponder the gifts of our Savior divine.
     The birth of the Christ child, eternal design;
     Savior, oh Savior, Redeemer Divine!
