Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

To print Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas, just highlight the words of this Christmas carol and copy and paste into your Word Editor or Powerpoint program.

This song does not have any Christian message. It does not mention God or about the birth of Christ. It's more about hope in the future and about parting and seeing each other again in a better tomorrow.

So why was it included here?

It's jolly! It's merry! It's heart-warming and it's popular. And some of you asked for it. :-)

This song was sung in 1944 by Judy Garland to Margaret O'Brien in the musical Meet Me in St. Louis. Later, many other artistes recorded it; namely, Jackie Gleason (1956), Frank Sinatra (1957), Connie Francis (1959), Ella Fitzgerald (1960) and more current by Amy Grant (1992), Christina Aguilera (2000), Michael Buble (2011), Richard Marx (2012), Don Moen (2012), Rod Stewart (2012) and many others.


Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

Lyrics: Hugh Martin
Music:
Ralph Blane

Stanza 1:

Have yourself a merry little Christmas,

Let your heart be light

From now on,

our troubles will be out of sight

Stanza 2:

Have yourself a merry little Christmas,

Make the Yule-tide gay,

From now on,

our troubles will be miles away.

Stanza 3:

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.

Stanza 4:

Through the years

We all will be together,

If the Fates allow

Hang a shining star upon the highest bough.

And have yourself A merry little Christmas now.

So maybe, you have a gathering during this festive season. And decided to add this song to your get together sing-along time - I think it is good. Many do have memory of this song and will whole heartedly sing along with you.

Sing it at the end of the party? Why not? It's hauntingly sad but memorable.
