Dale Trumbore: Glorious, Glorious
Harmonium Choral Society

text
from A Christmas Carol

No fog, no mist; clear, bright, jovial, stirring, cold;
cold, piping for the blood to dance to;
Golden sunlight; Heavenly sky; sweet fresh air; merry bells.
Oh, glorious. Glorious.

Clash, clang, hammer; ding, dong, bell.
Bell, dong, ding; hammer, clang, clash.
A merry Christmas to everybody!
A happy New Year to all the world.

I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future!
The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me.
I am as light as a feather, I am as happy as an angel.
Oh, glorious, glorious.

Clash, clang, hammer; ding, dong, bell.
Bell, dong, ding; hammer, clang, clash.
A merry Christmas to everybody!
A happy New Year to all the world.

I will honour Christmas in my heart,
and try to keep it all the year.

Clash, clang, hammer; ding, dong, bell.
Bell, dong, ding; hammer, clang, clash.
A merry Christmas to everybody!
A happy New Year to all the world.

—Charles Dickens,
adapted by the composer
