A child's Christmas song

Language: English

The night before Christmas evening,
While all the children sleep,
The dear little angels are working,
Until the dawn doth peep. 

They come from their home in heaven,
And dress with a magical wand
The darling dollies so sweetly,
As only the angels can. 

The night before Christmas evening,
All children are dreaming like me,
Are dreaming of all pretty playthings,
And of the Christmas tree.
