Deck the halls with boughs of holly 
Fa la la la la, la la la la 
Tis the season to be jolly 
Fa la la la la, la la la la 
Sing the joyous Christmas carol 
Fa la la la la, la la 
Noel, noel, noel, noel 
Born is the King of Israel 
Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house 
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse 
Peace on the earth, goodwill to men 
The blessèd angels sing 
The world in solemn stillness lay, 
To hear the angels sing. 
Sleep in heavenly peace 
Sleep in heavenly peace 
Don we now our gay apparel 
Fa la la la la la la!
