This is one of several songs written in two parts, for singing at the start and finish of the performance. In this particular version the first part of the song starts with the sound of a clock ticking. The second part (reprise) follows on from Part 1 after a short gap.

Part One (at the start of the performance)

Time moves on, goes so fast;
Another year will soon be past.
Christmas time comes, and so
Thoughts turn to that day so long ago.
The day when Christ was born,
The day when Christ the Lord was born.
The day when Christ was born,
That glorious day when Christ was born.

 

Reprise (at the end of the performance)

Holy child! Wondrous birth!
Creator of the universe!
Take it in, if you can,
The mighty God became a man.
The day when Christ was born,
The day when Christ the Lord was born.

Born to die, Lamb of God,
The pathway to the cross He trod.
Oh the grace! Oh the love!
Oh the gift that came from heaven above!
The day when Christ was born,
The day when Christ the Lord was born.
The day when Christ was born,
That glorious day when Christ was born.
