This is one of several songs written in two parts, for singing at the start and finish of the performance. The midi file includes both parts -the second part (reprise) follows on from Part 1 after a short gap.

Part One (at the start of the performance)

Year after year, Christmas time comes round again,
Time after time, as the year grows old.
You've heard the story, I'm sure,
Maybe a hundred times before.
It's a story that we know so well,
But good to tell year after year.


Reprise (at the end of the performance)

Year after year, Christmas time comes round again.
Time after time, As the year grows old.
And when the season arrives,
We seem to lead such busy lives,
Rushing here and there, so much to do

For me and you.

Year after year, Christmas time comes round again.
Time after time, As the year grows old.
Sometimes I think of that day,
So long ago and far away,
When the Son of God, by human birth,
Came to this earth.

Year after year, Christmas time comes round again.
Time after time, As the year grows old.
I think of God, in His love,
Sending His Son from heaven above.
That's the reason why we keep this date,
And celebrate, year after year.
