“A Christmas Dream” Written By: Louisa May Alcott    

From our happy home             
Through the world we roam   
One week in all the year,         
Making winter spring             
With the joy we bring             
For Christmas-tide is here.                   

Now the eastern star             
Shines from afar             
To light the poorest home;      
Hearts warmer grow, 
Gifts freely flow,  
For Christmas-tide has come. 

Now gay trees rise             
Before young eyes, 
Abloom with tempting cheer;  
Blithe voices sing,             
And blithe bells ring,             
For Christmas-tide is here.                       

Oh, happy chime,             
Oh, blessed time.             
That draws us all so near!       
“Welcome, dear day,”             
All creatures say,             
For Christmas-tide is here
