Auld Lang Syne

Should auld acquaintance be forgot

And never brought to mind

Lest auld acquaintance be forgot

I'll sing for auld lang syne

 

For auld lang syne, my dear

For auld lang syne 

We'll take a cup of kindness yet 

For auld lang syne.

 

Brim-fill that cup of kindness up,

Have a sip of wine and glow

Beside the tree, O pine with me

For the Christmas clock to slow

 

The Christmas clock to slow

The Christmas clock to slow

I’d give you all I know and have

If the Christmas clock would slow

 

The auld lang syne, told there

In the heirloom wooden crèche

Too strange, too complicated, O

We regard with awe and hush.

 

As Mary gazed at shepherd guests

And wondered at their words,

I’ll hold you in my pond’ring heart

Old friend, still much unheard

 

Old friend, so much is still unheard

Old friend, so much unheard,

A chasm full, immeas’rable

Are your secrets still unheard.

 

Imagine yet a table set

For all I’ve loved before

For brother, friend, ea  ch tear to mend

Sit there with me til morn

 

Til morning light intrudes on us

Til morning light intrudes

Unhurried, stay til night gives way

And the morning light intrudes

 

For auld lang syne, my dear

For auld lang syne 

We'll take a cup of kindness yet 

For auld lang syne.
