Be a child at Christmas time, with a merry heart a - glow;
Through a frosty window pane, you can see the fall - ing snow.
Trim the tree with candy canes, listen to the church bell chime;
Say little prayer at night, be a child at Christ - mas time.
Only children understand what a merry heart can do;
Be a child and you'll agree ev'rything is bright and new.
When the snow comes dancing down and you hear the church bell chime,
Let your heart be young again -- be a child at Christ - mas time.
