Wondering what the words are to Calling It Christmas, the new EJ/Taupin tune on Elton John's Christmas Party?

They appear below.

On a hill long ago on a cold winter's night
In a land far away three kings saw a light
>From heaven it shone like God's, God's own crown
And it guided three kings into Bethlehem town

Oh they came bearing gifts and so said each one
Let's call this day Christmas from this moment on
We'll be calling it Christmas in honor of him
The child in the manger our savior and king

chorus:
We've been calling it Christmas, keeping the faith
Knowing the reason we're saving the season
We've been calling it Christmas down through the years
Spreading joy to the world when Christmas is here

Oh a simple belief was the start of it all
A small child asleep on a bed made of straw
At the back of an inn where shepherds and kings
First felt the joy this moment would bring

{Repeat Chorus}
