What a world of happiness their lovely view incites
As they shimmer, shimmer, shimmer,
In the darkness of the room,
Where the children catch a glimmer
And with joyful hearts a-simmer,
They have happy hopes in bloom.
Then they twirl, twirl, twirl,
As with joyousness they whirl
To the beauty that invites
From the lights, lights, lights, lights
Lights, lights, lights,
From the glimmer and the shimmer of the lights.
See the brilliance of the lights -
What a world of blessedness their radiance ignites!
How they shine, shine, shine,
With an incandescent beam
Of significance divine,
Like the magi’s holy sign
That had come to them in dream,
As they glow, glow, glow,
In a grand symbolic show
Of the star that shone so brightly on that holiest of nights.
Oh the lights, lights, lights, lights,
Lights, lights, lights -
Oh the shining and the glowing of the lights!
