Beth posts a message on 12/3/2011 1:32:23 PM This version of the story is my family's favorite. My dad watches it frequently between Thanksgiving and mid January, and he loves the song "God Bless Us Everyone." Like many of the previous posts, I too am inquiring if there is a soundtrack available for this film. I would love to give it to him for Christmas.

Greg posts a message on 10/28/2011 5:06:34 PM The closing song "God Bless Us Everyone" is actually about Scrooge, with a Christmas refrain between each verse. The 1st verse is about "the PAST of man" ... the 2nd verse is about "the PRESENT man" ... the 3rd verse is about "the man TO COME." These 3 verses parallel the 3 ghosts that haunt Scrooge: Christmas PAST, Christmas PRESENT, Christmas YET TO COME. The lyricist has the same last name as the composer of the music, so I am assuming they are related.

tstephens posts a message on 12/25/2009 2:26:45 AM Thank you so much for the lyrics. I've been trying to find them for years. My father read A Christmas Carol to me every year when I was little, and George C. Scott was the image of Scrooge that I always pictured. This version is the closest to the book my father read to me to this very day. I'm so glad to see that so many people share my love of this movie, and this song. Merry Christmas to all, and God Bless us everyone.

sai posts a message on 12/20/2009 6:47:52 PM The lyrics as sung in the closing of "A Christmas Carol": {V1} The past of man was cold as ice / He would not mend his ways. / He strove for silver in his heart / And gold in all his days. / His reason weak, his anger sharp, / And sorrow all his pay, / He went to church but once a year, / And that was Christmas Day. {V2} The present man is full of flame: / He rushes here and there. / He turns away the orphan child, / The widow in her chair. / He takes more than he really needs, / Forgets how brief his stay, / And stands a-jingling of his coins / In church on Christmas Day. {Ref} So grant us all a change of heart, / Rejoice for Mary’s son; / Pray, Peace on earth to all mankind, / God bless us everyone! {V3} The man to come we do not know: / May he make peace on earth, / And live the glory of the Word, / The message of the birth, / And gather all the children in / To banish their dismay, / Lift up his heart among the bells / In church on Christmas Day. {Ref} So grant us all a change of heart, / Rejoice for Mary’s son; / Pray, Peace on earth to all mankind, / God bless us everyone! / Pray, Peace on earth to all mankind, / God bless us everyone!
GregInCalifornia posts a message on 12/13/2008 1:08:34 AM I was pleasantly surprised to find out that so many people love the song "God Bless Us Everyone" & its beautiful lyrics! Several times during the movie Scrooge is walking down the street & passes the group of carolers who are singing that song. Those scenes are timed so that, as Scrooge passes by the carolers, they are singing the line "So grant us all a change of heart." Merry Christmas to all!
