A Happy Time

A jolly time a happy time,
Of evergreen and bare branch lights;
When a smile cost less than a dime,
And the willing clink of a coin sounds;
Such a jolly time a happy time,
With winter winds and cooling breezes,
A season for every clime;
Cantors will sing the old and the new,
Celebrating in rhythm and rhyme;
The Son of God bringing joy to the world,
Christmas-time a happy time.
