“Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” Lyrics

Have yourself a merry little Christmas,

Let your heart be light

From now on,

our troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little Christmas,

Make the Yuletide gay,

From now on,

our troubles will be miles away

Here we are as in olden days,

Happy golden days of yore

Faithful friends who are dear to us

Gather near to us once more

Through the years,

We all will be together

If the fates allow,

So hang a shining star upon the highest bough

And have yourself a merry little Christmas now

Have yourself a merry little Christmas,

Let your heart be light

From now on,

our troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little Christmas,

Make the Yuletide gay,

From now on,

our troubles will be miles away

Here we are as in olden days,

Happy golden days of yore

Faithful friends who are dear to us

Gather near to us once more

Through the years,

We all will be together

If the fates allow,

So hang a shining star upon the highest bough

And have yourself a merry little Christmas now
