Christmas Songs

Angels We Have Heard on High

Angels we have heard on high
Sweetly singing over the plains.
And the mountains in reply
Echo still their joyful strains **

** GLO - - IA, IN EXCELSIS DEO
     GLO - - IA, IN EXCELSIS DEO

Shepherd why this jubilee?
Why your rapturous strain so long?
Say what my your tidings be
Which inspire your heavenly song **

Come to Bethlehem and see
Him whose birth the angels sing.
Come, adore on bended knee
The infant Christ, the new born 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 bright sky looked down where he lay
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay.

The cattle are lowing, the baby awakes,
But little Lord Jesus no crying he makes.
I love Thee, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky
And stay by my side until morning is nigh.

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 fit us for heaven to live with Thee there

From Heaven Above

From heaven above to earth I come
To bring good news to everyone;
Glad tidings of great joy I bring
To all the world and gladly sing

To you this night is born a child
Of Mary chosen virgin mild.
This new born child of lowly birth
Shall be the joy of all the earth

Happy Birthday

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU
HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR JESUS
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU

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".

Christ by highest heav'n adored;
Christ the everlasting Lord;
Late in time behold him come
Off-spring of the Virgin's womb.
Veiled in flesh the God-head see
Hail th'Incarnate Deity,
Pleased as man with man to dwell,
Jesus our Emmanuel.
Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the new-born King"

I Saw Three Ships

It  Came  

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.

Still through the cloven skies they come,
With peaceful wings unfurled;
And still their heavenly music floats
O'er all the weary world.
Above its sad and lowly plains
They bend on hovering wing;
And ever o'er its Babel sounds
The blessed angels sing.

(Repeat verse 1)

Jingle Bells

Dashing through the snow,
In a one-horse open sleigh,
O'er the fields we go,
Laughing all the way;
Bells on Bob-tail ring,
Making spirits bright,
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight.
Jingle bells, Jingle bells,
Jingle all the way.
O what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.
Hey! Jingle bells, Jingle bells
Jingle all the way.
O what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

Now the ground is white,
Go it while you're young,
Take the girls tonight,
And sing this sleighing song.
Just get a bob-tail nag,
$2.40 for his speed
Then hitch him to an open sleigh
And crack you'll take the lead.
O Jingle bells, Jingle bells
Jingle all the way.
O what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.
Hey! Jingle bells, Jingle bells
Jingle all the way.
O what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

Mary's Boy Child

A long time ago in Bethlehem
So the Holy Bible say:
Mary's boy child Jesus Christ
Was born on Christmas Day **

** HARK NOW HEAR THE ANGELS SING:
     A NEW KING BORN TODAY
     AND MAN WILL LIVE FOR EVERMORE
     BECAUSE OF CHRISTMAS DAY

Now Joseph and his wife Mary
came to Bethlehem that night
And found no place to bear her child
not a single room was in sight **

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
In the highest.
O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.

Yea Lord we greet Thee,
Born this happy morning;
Jesus to Thee be glory given.
Word of the Father
Now in flesh appearing.
O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.

O  Holy  Night

O Holy Night, the stars are brightly shining
It is the Night of the dear Saviour's birth.
Long lay the world in sin and sorrow pining
Till he appeared and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
Fall on your knees, O hear the angel voices:
O Night Divine, O Night when Christ was born,
O Night Divine, O Night Divine, O Night Divine.

Led by the light of faith serenely beaming
With glowing hearts by his cradle we stand.
So led by light of star so sweetly gleaming
Then came the wise men from th'Orient Land.
To see the King who made earth's lowliest choices
Yea chose his throne a manger all forlorn.
Fall on your knees, O hear the angel voices:
O Night Divine, O Night when Christ was born,
O Night Divine, O Night Divine, O Night Divine.

(Repeat verse 1)

O  Little  Town

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 tonight.

For Christ is born of Mary:
And gather'd all above,
While mortals sleep, the angels keep
Their watch of wond'ring love.
O morning stars together
Proclaim the holy birth!
And praises sing to God the King
and peace to men on earth.

(Repeat verse 1)

Santa Claus is Coming to Town

Youd better watch out, youd better not cry, better not pout, Im telling you why:
SANTA CLAUS is coming to town.
Hes making a list, and checking it twice, going to find out whos naughty and nice.
SANTA CLAUS is coming to town.

He sees you when youre sleeping, he knows when youre awake;
he knows if youve been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake.
Oh, youd better watch out, youd better not cry, better not pout, Im telling you why:
SANTA CLAUS is coming to town.

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,
Heav'nly hosts sing Al-le-lu-ia;
Christ the Saviour is born,
Christ the Saviour is born.

Silent Night, Holy Night,
Son of God, love's pure light
Radiant beams from Thy holy face,
With the dawn    of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth,
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth.

The  First  Nowell 

The first Nowell the angel did say
Was to certain poor shepherds
in fields as they lay;
In fields as they lay keeping their sheep,
On a cold winter's night that was so deep.
Nowell, Nowell, Nowell, Nowell,
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.
Nowell, Nowell, Nowell, Nowell,
Born is the King of Israel.

(Repeat verse 1)

 ("Nowell" = "Christmas")      

We Three Kings

We three kings of Orient are:
bearing gifts we traverse afar,
field and fountain, moor and mountain
following yonder star: OH-OH.. **

** O STAR OF WONDER STAR OF MIGHT
     STAR WITH ROYAL BEAUTY BRIGHT
     WESTERN LEADING STILL PROCEEDING
     GUIDE US TO THY PERFECT LIGHT

Born a King on Bethlehem's plain
gold I bring to crown him again
King forever ceasing never
Over us all to reign - OH-OH ..*

Frankincense to offer have I
incense owns a Deity nigh
Prayer and praising, all men raising
Worship him, God most high - OH-OH ..*

We three kings of Orient are:
bearing gifts we traverse afar,
field and fountain, moor and mountain
following yonder star: OH-OH..*
