God Bless Us, Everyone

God Bless Us, Everyone

Alan Menken, the acclaimed composer behind many of Disney’s films such as Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, Enchanted and most recently Tangled, wrote this song, “God Bless Us, Everyone” for his 1994 musical based on the Charles Dickens classic A Christmas Carol. Lyrics were done by Lynn Ahrens, and the book by Mike Ockrent. It debuted at Madison Square Garden’s Paramount Theater. In 2004, it was adapted into a made-for-TV musical starring Kelsey Grammar as Ebenezer Scrooge.


Let the stars in the sky
Remind us of man’s compassion.
Let us love till we die and
God bless us everyone.

In your heart there’s a light
As bright as a star in heaven.
Let it shine through the night and
God bless us everyone.

Till each child is fed,
Till all men are free,
Till the world becomes a family.

Star by star in the sky and
Kindness by human kindness.
Let me love till I die and
God bless us everyone.
