Away in a manger

Away in a Manger
No crib for a bed
The little Lord Jesus
Lay down His sweet head
The stars in the night sky
Look 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

god rest, ye merry gentlemen

God rest, ye merry gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
For Jesus Christ our Saviour
Was born on Christmas Day
To save us all from Satan's power
When we had gone astray

O tidings of comfort and joy
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

In Bethlehem in Israel
This blessed babe was born
And laid within a manger
Upon this blessed morn
To which His mother Mary
Did nothing take in scorn

O, tidings.. 

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

O, tidings..

Fear not then said the angel
Let nothing you affright
This day is born a Saviour
Of pure virgin bright
To free all those who trust in Him
From Satan's power and might

O, tidings..

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
All others doth deface

O, tidings..

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 the angelic host proclaim:
Christ is born in Bethlehem

Hark, the herald angels sing
Glory to the new born King

Christ by highest heaven adored
Christ the everlasting Lord
Late in time behold Him come
Offspring of a Vrgin's womb
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see
Hail the incarnate Deity
Pleased as man with man to dwell
Jesus, our Emmanuel

Hark..

Hail the heav'n-born Prince of Peace
Hail the Son of Righteousness
Light and life to all He brings
Ris'n 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

joy to the world

Joy to the world, the Lord is come
Let earth receive her King
Let every heart prepare Him room
And heav'n and nature sing
And heav'n and nature sing
And heaven and heaven and nature sing

Joy to the world, the Saviour 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

No more let sins and sorrows grow
Nor thorns infest the ground
He comes to make His blessings flow
Far as the curse is found
Far as the curse is found
Far as, far as the curse is found

He rules the world with truth and grace
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness
And wonders of His love
The wonders of His love,
Oh the wonders, the wonders of His love

Sing in exultation
Sing all ye citizens of heav'n above
Glory to God in the highest

Word of the Father
Now in flesh appearing

O come...

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 tonight

For Christ is born of Mary
And gathered all above
While mortals sleep the angels keep
Their watch of wondering love
O morning stars together
Proclaim the holy birth
And praises sing, to God the King
And peace to men on earth

How silently, how silently
The wondrous gift is giv'n
So God imparts to human hearts
The blessings of His heav'n.
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 today
We hear the Christmas angels
The great glad tidings tell
O come to us, abide with us
Our Lord Emmanuel

Once in royal david’s city

Once in royal David's city
Stood a lowly cattle shed
Where a mother lay her baby
In a manger for a bed
Mary was that mother mild
Jesus Christ, her little child

He came down to earth from heaven
Who is God and Lord of all
And His shelter was a stable
And His cradle was a stall
With the poor and meek and lowly
Lived on earth our Saviour holy

Jesus is our childhood's pattern
Day by day, like us He grew
He was little, weak and helpless
Tears and smiles, like us He Knew
And He feels for our sadness
And He shares in all our gladness

And our eyes at last shall see Him
Through His own redeeming love
For that child so dear and gentle
Is our Lord in heav'n above
And He leads His children on
To the place where He is gone

Not in that poor lowly stable
With the oxen standing by
We shall see Him but in heaven
Set at God's right hand on high
There His children gather round
Bright like stars, with glory crowned

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
Shepherd's quake at the sight
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heav'nly hosts sing Alleluia!
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 noel

The first Noel, the angels did say
Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay
In fields where they, lay keeping their sheep
On a cold winter's 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 before them far
And to the earth, it gave great light
And so it continued both day and night

Noel...

Then entered in those wise men three
Full reverently upon their knee
And offered there, in His presence
Their gold, and myrrh, and frankincense

Noel...

Then let us all, with one accord
Sing praises to our heavenly Lord
That hath made heav'n and earth of nought
And with his blood, mankind hath bought

Noel...

we three kings

We three kings of Orient are
Bearing gifts we traverse afar
Fields and fountain, moor and mountain
Following yonder star. O...

Star of wonder, star of night
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading, still proceeding
Guide us to thy perfect light

Born a King on Bethlehem's plain
God I bring to crown Him again
King forever, ceasing never
Over us all to reign. O...

Frankincense to offer, have I
Incense owns a Deity nigh
Prayer and praising, all men raising
Worship Him God most high. O...

Myrrh is mine, a bitter perfume
Breathes of life, of gathering gloom
Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying
Sealed in a stone-cold tomb. O.......

Glorious now, behold Him arise
King and God and sacrifice
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Earth to heav'n replies. O...

all i want for christmas

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
And I don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree

I don't need to hang my stocking
There upon the fireplace
Santa Claus won't make me happy
With a toy on Christmas Day
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you

Oh, I won't ask for much this Christmas
I won't even ask for snow
And I'm gonna keep on waiting
Underneath the mistletoe

I won't make a list and send it
To the North Pole for Saint Nick
I won't even stay awake to
Hear those magic reindeer click
'Cause I just want you here tonight
Holding on to me so tight
What more can I do?
Baby, all I want for Christmas is you

Oh, all the lights are shining
So brightly everywhere
And the sound of children's
Laughter fills the air
And everyone is singing
And I hear those sleigh bells ringing
Santa, won't you bring me what I really need?
Won't you please bring my baby to me?

Oh, I don't want a lot for Christmas
This is all I'm asking for
I just wanna see my baby
Standing right outside my door
Oh, I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you!

I wish it could be christmas

When the snowman brings the snow
Well he just might like to know
He's put a great big smile
On somebody's face
If you jump into your bed
Quickly cover up your head
Don't you lock your doors
You know that sweet Santa Claus
Is on the way

Oh, I wish it could be Christmas everyday
When the kids start singing
And the band begins to play
Well, I wish it could be Christmas everyday
Let the bells ring out for Christmas

When we're skating in the park
If the storm cloud paints it dark
Then your rosy cheeks
Gonna light my merry way
Now the frosticles appear
And they've frozen up my beard
So we'll lie by the fire
'til the sleep simply melts them all away

Oh, I wish...

merry christmas, everyone

Snow is falling all around me
Children playing, having fun
It's the season for love and understanding
Merry Christmas, everyone

Time for parties, and celebration
People dancing all night long
Time for presents and exchanging kisses
Time for singing Christmas songs

We're gonna have a party tonight
I'm gonna find that girl underneath the mistletoe
We'll kiss by candlelight

Room is swaying, records playing
All the old songs we love to hear
Oh I wish that everyday was Christmas
What a nice way to spend the year

We're gonna have a party tonight
I'm gonna find that girl underneath the mistletoe
We'll kiss by candlelight

Snow is falling all around me
Children playing, having fun
It's the season for love and understanding
Merry Christmas, everyone (x3)
