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 use adore Him

Christ, the Lord

---------

Sing choirs of angels, sing in exultation

O sing all ye bright hosts of heaven above

Glory to God, all glory in the highest

---------

O come, let us adore Him

O come, let us adore Him

O come, let use adore Him

Christ, the Lord

---------

Yea Lord we greet Thee, born this happy morning

Jesus to Thee be all glory giv’n

---------

O come, let us adore Him

O come, let us adore Him

O come, let use adore Him

Christ, the Lord

The Christmas Song

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire

Jack Frost nipping at your nose

Yuletide carols being sung by a choir

And folks dressed up like Eskimos

---------

Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe

Help to make the season bright

Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow

Will find it hard to sleep tonight

---------

They know that Santa's on his way

He's loading lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh

And every mother's child is going to spy

To see if reindeer really know how to fly

---------

And so I'm offering this simple phrase

To kids from one to ninety-two

Although it's been said many times many ways

Merry Christmas to you, merry Christmas to you

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

---------

Shepherds why this jubilee?

Why your joyous strains prolong?

What the gladsome tidings be

Which inspire your heavenly song?

---------

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.

---------

Gloria, in excelsis Deo

Gloria, in excelsis Deo

Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

You'd better watch out, you'd 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

Gonna find out who's naughty and nice

Santa Claus is coming to town

---------

He sees you when you're sleeping

He knows if you're awake

He knows if you've been bad or good

So be good for goodness sake

---------

Oh you'd better watch out, you'd better not cry

Better not pout, I'm telling you why

Santa Claus is coming to town

---------

With little tin horns and little toy drums

Rooty toot toots and rummy tum tums

Santa Claus is coming to town

And curly head dolls that toddle and coo

Elephants, boats and kiddie cars too

Santa Claus is coming to town

---------

The kids in Girl- and Boy-land, will have a jubilee

They're gonna build a Toy-land, all around the Christmas tree

So, you'd better watch out, you'd better not cry

Better not pout I'm telling you why

Santa Claus is coming to town

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, as they shouted out with glee

"Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, you'll go down in history"

Frosty The Snowman

Frosty the snowman, was a jolly happy soul

With a corn cob pipe and a button nose

And two eyes made out of coal

Frosty the snowman is a fairy tale 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

---------

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 he 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 you cry,

I'll be back again some day"

---------

Thumpety thump thump, thumpety thump thump

Look at Frosty go

Thumpety thump thump, thumpety thump thump

Over the hlls of snow

It Came Upon A Midnight Clear

It came a midnight clear, that glorious song of old

From angels bending near the earth, to touch their harps of gold

Peace on the earth goodwill to men, from heav'ns 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

---------

O ye beneath life's crushing load, whose forms are bending low

Who toil along the climbing way, with painful steps and slow

Look now for glad and golden hours, come swiftly on the wing

O rest beside the weary road, and hear the angels sing

Do You See What I See

Said the night wind to the little lamb

Do you see what I see?

Way up in the sky little lamb

Do you see what I see?

---------

A star, a star, dancing in the night

With a tail as big as a kite

With a tail as big as a kite

---------

Said the little lamb to the shepherd boy

Do you hear what I hear?

Ringing through the sky shepherd boy

Do you hear what I hear?

---------

A song, a song, high above the trees

With a voice as big as the sea

With a voice as big as the sea

---------

Said the shepherd boy to the mighty king

Do you know what I know?

In your palace warm mighty king

Do you know what I know?

---------

A child, a child, shivers in the cold

Let us bring him silver and gold

Let us bring him silver and gold

---------

Said the king to the people everywhere

Listen to what I say

Pray for peace people everywhere

Listen to what I say

---------

The child, the child, sleeping in the night

He will bring us goodness and light

He will bring us goodness and light

---------

He will bring us goodness and light

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way

Oh what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way

Oh what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh

Dancin' and prancin' in Jingle Bell Square

In the frosty air

Jingle bell time, is a swell time

To go glidin' in a one-horse sleigh

Mix and a-mingle in the jingling feet

Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree

Mistletoe hung where you can see, every couple tries to stop

Rockin' around the Christmas tree, let the Christmas spirit ring

You will get a sentimental feeling when you hear

Voices singing "Let's be jolly, deck the halls with boughs of holly"

Everyone dancing merrily in the new, old-fashioned way

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, look down where He lay

The little Lord Jesus, asleep on the hay

---------

The cattle are lowing, the poor Baby wakes

But little Lord Jesus, no crying He makes

I love Thee Lord Jesus, Look down from the sky

And stay by my cradle, 'til 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 take us to heaven, to live with Thee there

Mary, Did You Know?

Mary, did you know, that your baby boy

Will one day walk on water?

Mary, did you know, that your baby boy

Will save our sons and daughters?

---------

Did you know, that your baby boy

Has come to make you new?

This child that you've delivered

Will soon deliver you.

Mary, did you know, that your baby boy

Will give sight to a blind man?

Mary, did you know, that your baby boy

Will calm a storm with His hand?

---------

Did you know, that your baby boy

Has walked where angels trod?

And when you kiss your little baby

Then you've kissed the face of God

---------

The blind will see, the deaf will hear

The dead will live again

The lame will leap, the dumb will speak

The praises of The Lamb

---------

Mary, did you know, that your baby boy

Is Lord of all creation?

Mary, did you know, that your baby boy

Will one day rule the nations?

---------

This sleeping child you're holding

Is the Great I Am

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

---------

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 in us, our Lord Emmanuel

Silver Bells

City sidewalks, busy sidewalks dressed in holiday style

In the air there's a feeling of Christmas

Children laughing, people passing, meeting smile after smile

And on ev'ry street corner you hear

---------

Silver bells, silver bells, it's Christmas time in the city

Ring-a-ling, hear them ring, soon it will be Christmas day

---------

Strings of street lights, even stop lights, blink a bright red and green

As the shoppers rush home with their treasures

Hear the snow crunch, see the kids bunch, this is Santa's big scene

And above all this bustle you hear

---------

Silver bells, silver bells, it's Christmas time in the city

Ring-a-ling, hear them ring, soon it will be Christmas day

White Christmas

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas

Just like the ones I used to know

Where the treetops glisten and children listen

To hear sleigh bells in the snow

---------

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas

With every Christmas card I write

"May your days be merry and bright,

And may all your Christmases be white"

---------

And may all your Christmases be white"

What Child Is This?

What Child is this who laid to rest, on Mary's lap 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 the song on high, the Virgin sings her lullaby

Joy, joy for Christ is born, the Babe, the Son of Mary

Let It Snow

Oh the weather outside is frightful

But the fire is so delightful

And since we've no place to go

Llet it snow, let it snow, let it snow

---------

Oh it doesn't show sings of stopping

And I've brought some corn for popping

The lights are turned way down low

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

---------

When we finally kiss goodnight

How I'll hate going out in the storm

But if you really hold me tight

All the way home I'll be warm

---------

The fire is slowly dying

And my dear we're still goodbye-ing

But as long as you love me so

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

Winter Wonderland

Sleigh bells ring, are you list'ning

In the lane, snow is glistening

A beautiful sight, we're happy tonight

Walkin' in a winter wonderland

---------

Gone away is the bluebird, here to stay is a new bird

He sings a love song, as we go along

Walkin' in a winter wonderland

---------

In the meadow we can build a snowman

Then pretend that he is Parsons Brown

He'll say "Are you married?" We'll say "No man,

But you can do the job when you're in town!"

---------

Later on we'll conspire, as we dream by the fire

To face unafraid, the plans we made

Walkin' in a winter wonderland

---------

In the meadow we can build a snowman

And pretend that he's a circus clown

We'll have lots of fun with Mister Snowman

Until the other kiddies know him down

---------

When snows, ain't it thrillin'

Though your nose gets a chillin'

We'll frolic and play, the Eskimo way

Walkin' in a winter wonderland

Walkin' in a winter wonderland

Joy to the World

Joy to the world, the Lord is come

Let earth receive her King

Let ev’ry heart

Prepare him room

---------

And heav’n and nature sing

And heav’n and nature sing

And heav'n, and heaven and nature sing

---------

Joy to the earth, the Savior reigns

Let all 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 sin 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 worlds 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, and wonders of His love

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

Have yourself a merry little Christmas, let your heart be light

From now on our troubles will be out of sight

---------

Have yourself a merry little Christmas, make the Yuletide gay

From now on our troubles will be miles away

---------

Here we are as in olden days, happy golden days of yore

Faithful friends who are dear to us, gather near to us once more

---------

Through the years we all will be together, if the fates allow

Hang a shining star upon the highest bough

And have yourself a merry little Christmas now

Outside the snow is falling and friends are calling "Yoo hoo"

Come on it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you

Our cheeks are nice and rosy and comfy cozy are we

We're snuggled up together like two birds of a feather would be

Let's take the road before us and you sing a chorus or two

Come on it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you

The First Noël

The first Noël 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

---------

Noël Noël, Noël Noël

Born is the King of Israel

---------

They look-ed 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

---------

Noël Noël, Noël Noël

Born is the King of Israel

---------

And by the light, of that same star

Three wi-se men ca-me from country far

To seek for a King, was their intent

And to follow the star wheresoever it went

---------

Noël Noël, Noël Noël

Born is the King of Israel

---------

This star drew nigh, to the northwest

O'er Bethlehem it took its rest

And there it did, both stop and stay

Right over the place where Jesus lay

---------

Noël Noël, Noël Noël

Born is the King of Israel

---------

Then entered in, those wise men three

Full reverently upon their knee

And offered there, in His presence

Their gold and myrrh and frankincense

---------

Noël Noël, Noël Noël

Born is the King of Israel

---------

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

---------

Noël Noël, Noël Noël

Born is the King of Israel

O Holy Night

O holy night, the stars are brightly shining

It is the night of our dear Saviour's birth

Long lay the world in sin and error pining

'Til 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, O night divine

---------

Led by the light of stars serenely beaming

With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand

Thus led by light of star so sweetly gleaming

Here came the wise men from the Orient land

The King of kings lay thus in lowly manger

In all our trials born to be our Friend

---------

He knows our need, He guardeth us from danger

Behold your King, before Him lowly bend

Behold your King, your King, before Him bend

---------

Truly He taught us all to love each other

His law is love and His gospel is peace

Goodwill on earth with every one a brother

And in His Name all oppression shal cease

Sweet hymns of joy in grateful adoration

Let all within us praise His Holy Name

---------

Christ is the Lord, the hope of every nation

Noel, Noel, O night, O night divine

Noel, Noel, O night, O night divine

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

Song of God, love's pure light

Radiant beams from They holy face

With the dawn of redeeming grace

Jesus Lord at Thy birth

Jesus Lord at Thy birth
