  • Angels We Have Heard On High

    Angels we have heard on high

    Sweetly singing o’er the plains,

    And the mountains in reply

    Echoing their joyous strains.

         Gloria, in excelsis Deo!

         Gloria, in excelsis Deo!

    Come to Bethlehem and see

    Him whose birth the angels sing;

    Come, adore on bended knee,

    Christ the Lord, the newborn King.

  • Away in a Manger

    Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,

    The little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head.

    The stars in the sky looked down where he lay,

    The little Lord Jesus asleep in the hay.

    Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay

    Close by me forever, and love me, I pray.

    Bless all the dear children in thy tender care,

    And take us to heaven, to live with Thee there.

  • Deck the Halls

    Deck the halls with boughs of holly,

    Fa la la la la, la la la la.

    Tis the season to be jolly,

    Fa la la la la, la la la la.

    Don we now our gay apparel,

    Fa la la, la la la, la la la.

    Troll the ancient Yule tide carol,

    Fa la la la la, la la la la.

    See the blazing Yule before us,

    Fa la la la la, la la la la.

    Strike the harp and join the chorus.

    Fa la la la la, la la la la.

    Follow me in merry measure,

    Fa la la la la, la la la la.

    While I tell of Yule tide treasure,

    Fa la la la la, la la la la.

  • Frosty the Snowman

    Frosty the Snowman, was a jolly happy soul,

    With a corn cob pipe and a button nose,

    And two eyes made of coal.

    Frosty the Snowman, is a fairytale, they say.

    He was made of snow, but the children know

    How he came to life one day.

    There must have been some magic

    In that old silk hat they found,

    For when they placed it on his head,

    He began to dance around!

    Oh, Frosty, the Snowman, was alive as he could be;

    And the children say he could laugh and play,

    Just the same as you and me.

         Thumpety thump, thump,

         Thumpety thump, thump, look at Frosty go.

         Thumpety thump, thump,

         Thumpety thump, thump, over the hills of snow.

    Frosty the Snowman, knew the sun was hot that day,

    So he said, “Let’s run, and we’ll have some fun now,

    Before I melt away.”

    Down to the village, with a broomstick in his hand,

    Running here and there, all around the square,

    Sayin’, “Catch me if you can.”

    He led them down the streets of town,

    Right to the traffic cop; and only paused a moment,

    When he heard him holler, “Stop!”

    For Frosty, the Snowman, had to hurry on his way,

    But he waved goodbye, sayin’ “Don’t cry,

    I’ll be back again some day.”

  • Go, Tell It on the Mountain

    Go, tell it on the mountain

    Over the hills and everywhere

    Go, tell it on the mountain

    That Jesus Christ is born.

     

    While shepherds kept their watching

    O’er silent flocks by night,

    Behold throughout the heavens

    There, shone a holy light.

    The shepherds feared and trembled

    When lo above the earth

    Rang out the angel chorus

    That hailed our Savior’s birth;

    Down in a lowly manger

    The humble Christ was born;

    And God sent out salvation

    That blessed Christmas morn.

  • God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen

    God rest ye merry, gentlemen,

    Let nothing you dismay.

    For Jesus Christ our Savior,

    Was born on Christmas Day;

    To save us all from Satan’s power,

    When we were gone astray.

       O tidings of comfort and joy,

       Comfort and joy,

       O tidings of comfort and joy.

    From God our heavenly Father,

    A blessed angel came.

    And unto certain shepherds,

    Brought tidings of the same,

    How that in Bethlehem was born,

    The Son of God by name:

    Now to the Lord sing praises,

    All you within this place,

    And with true love and brotherhood,

    Each other now embrace;

    This holy tide of Christmas,

    Doth bring redeeming grace.

  • Hark! The Herald Angels Sing

    Hark! the herald angels sing

    Glory to the new-born King!

    Peace on earth and mercy mild,

    God and sinners reconciled!

    Joyful, all ye nations, rise,

    Join the triumph of the skies;

    With th’ angelic host proclaim

    Christ is born in Bethlehem!

       Hark! the herald angels sing

       Glory to the new-born King!

    Hail, the heaven-born Prince of Peace!

    Hail, the Son of Righteousness!

    Light and life to all He brings,

    Risen with healing in His wings,

    Mild He lays His glory by,

    Born that man no more may die,

    Born to raise the sons of earth,

    Born to give them second birth.

  • I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day

    I heard the bells on Christmas day

    Their old familiar carols play,

    And wild and sweet the words repeat

    Of peace on earth, good will to men.

    Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:

    God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;

    The wrong shall fail, the right prevail

    With peace on earth, good will to men.

    Till ringing, singing on its way

    The world revolved from night to day,

    A voice, a chime, a chant sublime

    Of peace on earth, good will to men.

  • I Saw Three Ships

    I saw three ships come sailing in,

    On Christmas day, on Christmas day,

    I saw three ships come sailing in,

    On Christmas day in the morning.

    And all the bells on earth shall ring,

    On Christmas day, on Christmas day,

    And all the bells on earth shall ring,

    On Christmas day in the morning.

    Then let us all rejoice, again,

    On Christmas day, on Christmas day,

    Then let us all rejoice, again,

    On Christmas day in the morning.

  • It Came Upon the Midnight Clear

    It came upon the midnight clear,

    That glorious song of old,

    From angels bending near the earth,

    To touch their harps of gold!

    Peace on the earth, good will to men,

    From heaven’s all gracious King!

    The world in solemn stillness lay,

    To hear the angels sing.

    For lo the days are hastening on,

    By prophet bards foretold,

    When, with the ever-circling years,

    Shall come the Age of Gold;

    When peace shall over all the earth,

    Its ancient splendors fling,

    And all the world give back the song,

    Which now the angels sing.

  • Jingle Bells

    Dashing thro’ the snow,

    In a one horse open sleigh,

    O’er the hills we go,

    Laughing all the way;

    Bells on bob tail ring,

    Making spirits bright,

    Oh what sport to ride and sing

    A sleighing song to night.

       Jingle bells, jingle bells,

       Jingle all the way;

       Oh! what joy it is to ride

       In a one horse open sleigh.

    (sing refrain twice)

  • Joy to the World

    Joy to the world, the Lord is come;

    Let earth receive her King;

    Let every heart prepare Him room,

    And heaven and nature sing,

    And heaven and nature sing,

    And heaven, and heaven and nature sing.

    Joy to the earth, the Savior reigns;

    Let men their songs employ;

    While fields and floods,

    Rocks, hills and plains

    Repeat the sounding joy,

    Repeat the sounding joy,

    Repeat, repeat the sounding joy.

    He rules the world with truth and grace,

    And makes the nations prove

    The glories of His righteousness,

    And wonders of His love,

    And wonders of His love,

    And wonders, wonders of His love.

  • O Come, All Ye Faithful

    O come, all ye faithful,

    Joyful and triumphant,

    O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem;

    Come and behold him,

    Born the King of angels;

       O come, let us adore him,

       O come, let us adore him,

       O come, let us adore him, Christ the Lord.

    Sing, choirs of angels,

    Sing in exultation,

    Sing, all ye citizens of heaven above;

    Glory to God

    Glory in the highest;

  • O Little Town of Bethlehem

    O little town of Bethlehem,

    How still we see thee lie!

    Above thy deep and dreamless sleep

    The silent stars go by.

    Yet in thy dark streets shineth

    The everlasting Light;

    The hopes and fears of all the years

    Are met in thee to-night.

    How silently, how silently,

    The wondrous gift is given;

    So God imparts to human hearts

    The blessings of His Heaven.

    No ear may hear His coming,

    But in this world of sin,

    Where meek souls will receive Him still,

    The dear Christ enters in.

    O holy Child of Bethlehem,

    Descend to us, we pray!

    Cast out our sin and enter in,

    Be born in us to-day.

    We hear the Christmas angels,

    The great glad tidings tell;

    O come to us, abide with us,

    Our Lord Emmanuel!

  • Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

    Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

    You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen,

    Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen.

    But do you recall the most famous reindeer of all?

    Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer

    Had a very shiny nose,

    And if you ever saw it

    You would even say it glows.

    All of the other reindeer

    Used to laugh and call him names.

    They never let poor Rudolph

    Join in any reindeer games.

    Then one foggy Christmas Eve Santa came to say,

    “Rudolph, with your nose so bright,

    Won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?”

    Then how the reindeer loved him

    And they shouted out with glee,

    “Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer,

    You’ll go down in history!”

  • Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

       You better watch out, you better not cry,

       Better not pout, I’m telling you why:

       Santa Claus is coming to town.

    He’s making a list, and checking it twice.

    He’s gonna find out who’s naughty or nice.

    Santa Claus is coming to town.

    He sees you when you’re sleeping.

    He knows when you’re awake.

    He knows if you’ve been bad or good.

    So, be good for goodness sake.

  • Silent Night

    Silent night, holy night!

    All is calm, all is bright.

    Round yon Virgin, Mother and Child.

    Holy infant so tender and mild,

    Sleep in heavenly peace,

    Sleep in heavenly peace.

    Silent night, holy night!

    Shepherds quake at the sight.

    Glories stream from heaven afar,

    Heavenly hosts sing, “Alleluia,”

    Christ the Savior is born!

    Christ the Savior is born.

    Silent night, holy night!

    Son of God, love’s pure light.

    Radiant beams from Thy holy face,

    With dawn of redeeming grace,

    Jesus Lord, at Thy birth.

    Jesus Lord, at Thy birth.

  • The First Noel

    The first Noel the Angel did say

    Was to three poor Shepherds in fields as they lay.

    In fields where they lay keeping their sheep,

    In a cold winters night that was so deep.

       Noel, noel, noel, noel,

       Born is the King of Israel.

    They looked up and saw a star

    Shining in the East, beyond them far,

    And to the earth it gave great light,

    And so it continued, both day and night.

    Then let us all with one accord

    Sing praises to our heavenly Lord;

    That hath made heaven and earth of nought,

    And with his blood mankind hath bought.

  • What Child Is This?

    What child is this who, laid to rest

    On Mary’s lap is sleeping?

    Whom Angels greet with anthems sweet,

    While shepherds watch are keeping?

    This, this is Christ the King,

    Whom shepherds guard and Angels sing;

    Haste, haste, to bring Him laud,

    The Babe, the Son of Mary.

    So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh,

    Come peasant, king to own Him;

    The King of kings salvation brings,

    Let loving hearts enthrone Him.

    Raise, raise a song on high,

    The virgin sings her lullaby.

    Joy, joy for Christ is born,

    The Babe, the Son of Mary.
