I was wondering if you could help me with this christmas song. I love the song and Don Stiffe did a great job. I was wondering if you could give me the lyrics from a video on youtube since Don sings the words a bit too fast for me to hear.
I would deeply appreciate it

Here's my transcription:
HOME ON TIME FOR CHRISTMAS
1. The lights of welcome are shining through the windows.
Jack Frost begins to settle on the ground.
The children have sent all their letters off to Santa,
While the Irish are gathering the whole world round.
2. Snow is falling gently over Ireland,
Like a dove of peace throughout our land.
Let's all come together in harmony and joy
And brace(?) upon each other with a helping hand.
CHORUS: From Galway to Dublin, from Belfast and Cork,
They're filling up the boats and all the planes.
They're hoping to be home on time for Christmas Eve.
They'll prob'ly meet old Santa Claus's reindeer on his way.
3. It's great to see the kids on Christmas morning,
Their faces lit up with their delight,
Seeing all the gifts that Santa left them.
The girls they got their dolls ...(?) and the boys they got their bikes.
4. But now the Christmas cheer is over and gone.
The suitcase has been packed and the home is full of tears.
Keep those candles lighted in the window,
For the ones that couldn't make it might make it home next year.
