Though the text is my own, the melody is one that I first heard while participating in a Christmas concert with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. It belongs to a Belgian Christmas carol, and I loved it for its cheerful sound. I couldn't find a translation of the original words, and I couldn't use the words that were used in the concert, so I wrote my own.
