Bright as the sun in the dark night air
There appeared a heavenly light
To guide the wise men to the King of hope
Who was born on Christmas night
The wisdom child and his mother mild
Slept in a manger stall
In a stable low while the cattle moaned
And the angels stood their guard

Come rejoice
Queen and beggar
The homeless man
And the Prince of pride
Saints and vagabonds
Rich and poor
Rejoice in gladness on
Christmas night

Bearing their gifts every wise man knelt
Bending his knees to the King
In the heavenly light while sweet Mary smiled
They heard the angels sing
So every soul on Christmas day learns to find the Grace
With gifts of Myers' and francescence
They bless sweet Jesus face

Come rejoice
Queen and beggar
The homeless man
And the Prince of pride
Saints and vagabonds
Rich and poor
Rejoice in gladness on
Christmas night

Late tonight on a city street
some Child of woman and man
Goes to sleep on the frozen gravel
and holds an empty hand
Lift your eyes to the hopeless face
That greets you on your way
Give the tender gift of hope
Make Christmas every day.

Come rejoice
Queen and beggar
The homeless man
And the Prince of pride
Saints and vagabonds
Rich and poor
Rejoice in gladness on
Christmas night
