O beautiful, wonderful …

O beautiful, wonderful Christmas time!
What do you bring lust and happiness!
If the Holy Christian is in every house
gives out his sweet gifts.

And is the house as small as it is?
so the holy Christian comes in,
and all are dear to him as his own,
rich and poor, big and small.

The Holy Christian thinks of everyone,
each one is gifted by him.
So let us rejoice and be grateful!
He thinks ours, mine and yours!
