Subject: Lyr/Tune Add: CHRISTMAS DAY (Wheeler/James)
From: Bob Bolton
Date: 28 Dec 01 - 04:59 AM

G'day again,


Here's another Australian Christmas Carol, refer to my posting above of Carol of the Birds.


Christmas Day
Words by John Wheeler
Music by William G. James


The north wind is tossing the leaves.
The red dust is over the town;
The sparrows are under the eaves,
And the grass in the paddock is brown;
As we lift up our voices and sing,
To the Christ-child the heavenly King.

The tree ferns in green gullies sway;
The cool stream flows silently by;
The joy bells are greeting the day,
And the chimes are adrift in the sky,
As we lift up our voices and sing,
To the Christ-child the heavenly King.

Here is the tune, in Alan of Oz's MIDItxt format:
