1. Wave the banners of joy today,
For Christ the King is born!
Angels thronging the heav’nly way,
Brought tidings thro’ the morn:
Peace, goodwill, is their welcome cry,
Glory to God on high!
Wave the banners, O wave them high,
For Christ the King is born!

Refrain
Wave the banners today,
Let them merrily sway,
Bearing the joyful tidings
All along our way.
Wave the banners today,
Let them merrily sway,
Christ is born this Christmas morn,
So wave the banners today.

2. Wave the banners of love today,
For Christ has come to reign!
Hear the words that the angels say,
And join the happy strain.
Peace, goodwill, is the message clear,
Glory! O tidings dear;
Wave the banners, O wave them here,
For Christ has come to reign! [Refrain]
