About This Video

“The Christmas Canon” is a Christmas song by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra (TSO) from their 1998 album The Christmas Attic.

The song is set to the tune of Johann Pachelbel’s Canon in D Major with new lyrics added. The style is a departure from TSO’s usual rock arrangements, instead being performed in the style of a children’s choir with light accompaniment from piano and strings.

As of December 2010, the song was the fourth best-selling Christmas song in digital history with 590,000 downloads.

Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas

(The joy that he brings)
Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas
(The joy that he brings)
Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas
(The joy that he brings)
Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas
(The joy that he brings)
Merry Christmas

This night, we pray
Our lives, will show
This dream, he had
Each child, still knows

This night, we pray
Our lives, will show
This dream, he had
Each child, still knows

(He had)
This night, we pray
(Our lives)
Our lives, will show
(He had)
This dream, he had
(Our lives)
Each child, still knows

(He had)
This night, we pray
(Our lives)
Our lives, will show
(He had)
This dream, he had
(Our lives)
Each child, still knows

(He had)
This night
(On this night, on this night, on this very Christmas night)
We pray
(On this night, on this night, on this very Christmas night)
(Our lives)
Our lives
(On this night, on this night, on this very Christmas night)
Will show

(He had)
This dream
(On this night, on this night, on this very Christmas night)
He had
(On this night, on this night, on this very Christmas night)
(Our lives)
Each child
(On this night, on this night, on this very Christmas night)
Still knows
