Angels from the Realm of Glory

Angels from the realm of glory,

Wing our flight over all the earth;

Ye who sang creation's story

Now proclaim the Messiah's birth.

Come and worship, come and worship

Worship Christ, the newborn King.

Shepherds, in the field abiding,

Watching over your flocks by night,

God with us is now residing;

Yonder shines the infant light:

Come and worship, come and worship

Worship Christ, the newborn King.

Sages, leave your contemplations,

Brighter visions beam afar;

Seek the great Desire of nations;

Ye have seen His natal star.

Come and worship, come and worship

Worship Christ, the newborn King.

Saints, before the altar bending,

Watching long in hope and fear;

Suddenly the Lord, descending,

In His temple shall appear.

Come and worship, come and worship

Worship Christ, the newborn King.

Sinners, wrung with true repentance,

Doomed for guilt to endless pains,

Justice now revokes the sentence,

Mercy calls you, break your chains.

Come and worship, come and worship

Worship Christ, the newborn King.

Though an infant now we view Him,

He shall fill His Father's throne,

Gather all nations to Him;

Every knee shall then bow down:

Come and worship, come and worship

Worship Christ, the newborn King.

All creation, join in praising

God, the Father, Spirit, Son,

Evermore your voices raising

To the eternal Three in One.

Angels We Have Heard

Angels we have heard on high

Sweetly singing o'er the plains

The mountains in reply

Echoing their joyous strains of

In excelsis Deo

Glory in the highest

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

See Him in a manger laid

Whom the choirs of angels praise

Mary, Joseph, lend your aid

While our hearts in love we raise

In excelsis Deo

Glory in the highest

Gloria

Angels we have heard on high

Sweetly singing o'er the plains

The mountains in reply

Echoing their joyous strains of

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.

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 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.

Caroling, Caroling

Caroling, caroling, now we go

Christmas bells are ringing

Caroling, caroling thru the snow

Christmas bells are ringing

Joyous voices sweet and clear

Sing the sad of heart to cheer

Ding dong, ding dong

Christmas bells are ringing

Caroling, caroling thru the town

Christmas bells are ringing

Caroling, caroling up and down

Christmas bells are ringing

Mark ye well the song we sing

Gladsome tidings now we bring

Ding dong, ding dong

Sing we all this happy morn

"Lo, the King of heav'n is born!"

Gaily they ring

COME, ALL YE SHEPHERDS

Come, all ye shepherds, ye children of earth,

Come ye, bring greetings to yon heavenly birth.

For Christ the Lord to all men is given,

To be our Savior sent down from heaven:

Come, welcome Him!

Hasten then, hasten to Bethlehem's stall,

There to see heaven descend to us all.

With holy feeling, there humbly kneeling,

We will adore Him, bow down before Him,

Worship the King.

Angels and shepherds together we go

Seeking the Savior from all earthly woe;

While angels, winging, His praise are singing,

Heaven's echoes ringing, peace on earth bringing,

Good will to men.

Ding Dong Merrily on High

Do You Hear What I Hear

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

The First Noel

The first Noel, the angel 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 the East, beyond them far;

And to the earth it gave great light,

And so it continued both day and night.

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,

Born is the King of Israel.

And by the light of that same star,

Three wise men came from country far;

To seek for a King was their intent,

And to follow the star wherever it went.

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,

Born is the King of Israel.

This star drew night 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.

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,

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.

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel,

Born is the King of Israel.

Frosty the Snow Man

Frosty the snowman was a jolly happy soul

With a corncob 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.

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.

Thumpetty thump thump

thumpety thump thump

Look at Frosty go

Thumpetty 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 saying

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 snow man

had to hurry on his way

But he waved goodbye saying

"Don't you cry

I'll be back again some day.

" Thumpetty thump thump

thumpety thump thump

Look at Frosty go

Thumpetty thump thump

thumpety thump thump

Over the hills of snow

God rest you merry, gentlemen,

Let nothing you dismay,

Remember Christ our Savior

Was born on Christmas day,

To save us all from Satan's pow'r

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:

O tidings of comfort and joy,

Comfort and joy,

O tidings of comfort and joy.

"Fear not," then said the angel,

"Let nothing you affright,

This day is born a Savior,

Of virtue, power, and might;

So frequently to vanquish all

The friends of Satan quite";

O tidings of comfort and joy,

Comfort and joy,

O tidings of comfort and joy.

The shepherds at those tidings

Rejoiced much in mind,

And left their flocks a-feeding,

In tempest, storm, and wind,

And went to Bethlehem straightway

This blessed babe to find:

O tidings of comfort and joy,

Comfort and joy,

O tidings of comfort and joy.

But when to Bethlehem they came,

Whereat this infant lay

They found him in a manger,

Where oxen feed on hay;

His mother Mary kneeling,

Unto the Lord did pray:

O tidings of comfort and joy,

Comfort and joy,

O tidings of comfort and joy.

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 of comfort and joy,

Comfort and joy,

O tidings of comfort and joy.

Good King Wenceslas

Good King Wenceslas looked out,

On the Feast of Stephen,

When the snow lay round about,

Deep and crisp and even;

Brightly shone the moon that night,

Tho' the frost was cruel,

When a poor man came in sight,

Gath'ring winter fuel.

"Hither, page, and stand by me,

If thou know'st it, telling,

Yonder peasant, who is he?

Where and what his dwelling?"

"Sire, he lives a good league hence,

Underneath the mountain;

Right against the forest fence,

By Saint Agnes' fountain."

"Bring me flesh, and bring me wine,

Bring me pine logs hither:

Thou and I will see him dine,

When we bear them thither."

Page and monarch, forth they went,

Forth they went together;

Thro' the rude wind's wild lament

And the bitter weather.

"Sire, the night is darker now,

And the wind blows stronger;

Fails my heart, I know not how,

I can go no longer."

Mark my footsteps, good my page;

Tread thou in them boldly:

Thou shalt find the winter's rage

Freeze thy blood less coldly."

In his master's steps he trod,

Where the snow lay dinted;

Heat was in the very sod

Which the saint had printed.

Therefore, Christian men, be sure,

Wealth or rank possessing,

Ye who now will bless the poor,

Shall yourselves find blessing.

Good Christian Men, Rejoice

John M. Neale

Good Christian men, rejoice

With heart and soul and voice;

Give ye heed to what we say;

News! News! Jesus Christ is born today!

Ox and ass before him bow,

he is in the manger now;

Christ is born today! Christ is born today!

Good Christian men, rejoice,

With heart and soul and voice;

Now ye hear of endless bliss,

Jesus Christ was born for this!

He has op'ed the heav'nly door

And man is blessed evermore.

Christ was born for this!

Christ was born for this!

Good Christian men, rejoice,

With heart and soul and voice;

Now ye need not fear the grave;

Jesus Christ is born to save.

Calls you one and calls you all,

To gain His everlasting hall.

Christ was born to save!

Christ was born to save!

Greensleeves

What child is this, who, lay 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

Why lies he in such mean estate

where ox and ass are feeding?

Good Christian, fear; for sinners

here the silent Word is pleading

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

This, this is Christ the King

whom shepards guard and angels sing

Haste, Haste, to bring him laud,

The babe, the son of Mary

Mr. Grinch

You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch

You really are a heel,

You're as cuddly as a cactus, you're as charming as an eel, Mr. Grinch,

You're a bad banana with a greasy black peel!

You're a monster, Mr. Grinch,

Your heart's an empty hole,

Your brain is full of spiders, you have garlic in your soul, Mr. Grinch,

I wouldn't touch you with a thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole!

You're a foul one, Mr. Grinch,

You have termites in your smile,

You have all the tender sweetness of a seasick crocodile, Mr. Grinch,

Given a choice between the two of you I'd take the seasick crocodile!

You're a rotter, Mr. Grinch,

You're the king of sinful sots,

Your heart's a dead tomato splotched with moldy purple spots,

Mr. Grinch,

You're a three decker sauerkraut and toadstool sandwich with arsenic sauce!

You nauseate me, Mr. Grinch,

With a nauseous super "naus"!,

You're a crooked dirty jockey and you drive a crooked hoss,

Mr. Grinch,

Your soul is an appalling dump heap overflowing with the most disgraceful

assortment of rubbish imaginable mangled up in tangled up knots!

You're a foul one, Mr. Grinch,

You're a nasty wasty skunk,

Your heart is full of unwashed socks, your soul is full of gunk,

Mr. Grinch,

The three words that best describe you are as follows,

and I quote,

"Stink, stank, stunk"!

The Holly and the Ivy

The holly and the ivy,

When they are both full grown,

Of all the trees that are in the wood,

The holly bears the crown.

O the rising of the sun,

And the running of the deer,

The playing of the merry organ,

Sweet singing in the choir.

The holly bears a blossom

As white as lily flower;

And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ

To be our sweet Savior.

The holly bears a berry

As red as any blood;

Any Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ

To do poor sinners good.

The holly bears a prickle

As sharp as any thorn;

And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ

On Christmas day in the morn.

The holly bears a bark

As bitter as any gall;

And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ

For to redeem us all.

The holly and the ivy,

When they are both full grown,

Of all the trees that are in the wood,

The holly bears the crown.

Somebody waits for you;

Kiss her once for me

Home for the Holidays

Al Stillman and Robert Allen

Oh, there's no place like

home for the holidays,

'Cause no matter how far away you roam

When you pine for the sunshine

Of a friendly face

For the holidays, you can't beat

Home, sweet home

I met a man who lives in Tennessee

And he was headin' for Pennsylvania

And some home made pumpkin pie

From Pennsylvania folks a travelin' down

To Dixie's sunny shore

From Atlantic to Pacific, gee

The traffic is terrific

Oh there's no place like home

For the holidays, 'cause no matter

How far away you roam

If you want

To be happy in a million ways

For the holidays, you can't beat

Home, sweet home

Here We Come a' Caroling

Who beg from door to door,

But we are neighbors' children,

Whom you have seen before.

Love and joy come to you,

And to your wassail too

And God bless you and send you a Happy New Year,

And God send you a Happy New Year.

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

On the highest bough,

And have yourself

A merry little Christmas now.

I'll Be Home For Christmas

Music by Walter Kent

Lyric by Kim Gannon

I'll be home for Christmas

You can count on me

Please have snow

And mistletoe

And presents 'neath the tree

Christmas eve will find me

Where the love light gleams

I'll be home for Christmas

If only in my dreams

Christmas eve will find me

Where the love light gleams

I'll be home for Christmas

If only in my dreams

If only in my dreams

I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day

I heard the bells on Christmas day

Their old familiar carols play

And mild and sweet the words repeat,

Of peace on earth, good will to men.

I thought how as the day had come,

The belfries of all Christendom

Had roll'd along th' unbroken song

Of peace on earth, good will to men.

And in despair I bow'd my head:

"There is no peace on earth," I said,

"For hate is strong, and mocks the song

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."

'Til 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 Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

T. Connor

I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus

Underneath the mistletoe last night

She didn't see me creep

down the stairs to have a peep;

She thought that I was tucked

up in my bedroom fast asleep

Then

I saw Mommy tickle Santa Claus

Underneath his beard so snowy white;

Oh

what a laugh it would have been

If Daddy had only seen

Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night

I Wonder as I Wander

I wonder as I wander out under the sky,

How Jesus the Savior did come for to die.

For poor on'ry people like you and like I...

I wonder as I wander out under the sky.

When Mary birthed Jesus 'twas in a cow's stall,

With wise men and farmers and shepherds and all.

But high from God's heaven a star's light did fall,

And the promise of ages it then did recall.

If Jesus had wanted for any wee thing,

A star in the sky, or a bird on the wing,

Or all of God's angels in heav'n for to sing,

He surely could have it, 'cause he was the King.

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 what was in those ships all three,

On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day.

And what was in those ships all three,

On Christmas Day in the morning?

The Virgin Mary and Christ were there,

on Christmas Day, on Christmas Day.

The virgin Mary and Christ were there,

On Christmas Day in the morning.

Then let us all rejoice amain,

On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day.

Then let us all rejoice amain,

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.

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.

Yet with ye woes of sin and strife

The world hath suffered long;

Beneath the angel-strain have rolled

Two thousand years of wrong;

And man, at war with man, hears not

The love song which they bring:

O hush the noise, ye men of strife,

And 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.

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.

No more let sins and sorrows grow,

nor thorns infest the ground;

He comes to make His blessing 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,

and wonders of His love,

and wonders, wonders of His love.

Jingle Bells

Dashing through the snow

On a one-horse open sleigh

Over 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

A day or two ago

I thought I'd take a ride

And soon Miss Fanny Bright

Was seated by my side;

The horse was lean and lank;

Misfortune seemed his lot;

He got into a drifted bank

And we

we got upsot

Jingle Bells

Jingle Bells

Jingle all the way!

What fun it is to ride

In a one-horse open sleigh

A day or two ago

the story I must tell

I went out on the snow

And on my back I fell;

A gent was riding by

In a one-horse open sleigh

He laughed as there

I sprawling lie

But quickly drove away

Jingle Bells

Jingle Bells

Jingle all the way!

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-tailed bay

two-forty as his speed

Hitch him to an open sleigh

And crack! you'll take the lead

Jingle Bells

Jingle Bells

Jingle all the way!

What fun it is to ride

In a one-horse open sleigh

Jolly Old Saint Nicholas

Jolly old Saint Nicholas

lean your ear this way!

Don't you tell a single soul

what I'm going to say:

Christmas Eve is coming soon;

now

you dear old man

Whisper what you'll bring to me;

tell me if you can

When the clock is striking twelve

when I'm fast asleep

Down the chimney, broad and black

with your pack you'll creep

All the stockings you will find

hanging in a row

Mine will be the shortest one

you'll be sure to know

Bobby wants a pair of skates

Suzy wants a sled

Nellie wants a picture book

yellow

blue

and red

Now I think I'll leave to you

what to give the rest

Choose for me, dear Santa Claus;

you will know the best

Let There Be Peace on Earth

Sy Miller and Bill Jackson

Let there be peace on earth

and let it begin with me

Let There Be Peace on Earth

The peace that was meant to be

With God as our Father

Brothers all are we

Let me walk with my brother

In perfect harmony.

Let peace begin with me

Let this be the moment now.

With ev'ry step I take

Let this be my solemn vow;

To take each moment and live

Each moment in peace eternally

Let there be peace on earth

and let it begin with me

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

Lyrics by Sammy Cahn

Oh the weather outside is frightful

But the fire is so delightful

And since we've no place to go

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

It doesn't show signs of stopping

And I've bought 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'll really hold me tight

All the way home I'll be warm

The fire is slowly dying

And, my dear, we're still goodbying

But as long as you love me so

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

By: Eddie Pola and George Wyle

It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

With the kids jingle belling

And everyone telling you "Be of good cheer"

It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

It's the hap -happiest season of all

With those holiday greetings and gay happy meetings

When friends come to call

It's the hap - happiest season of all

There'll be parties for hosting

Marshmallows for toasting

And caroling out in the snow

There'll be scary ghost stories

And tales of the glories of

Christmases long, long ago

It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

There'll be much mistltoeing

And hearts will be glowing

When love ones are near

It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

There'll be parties for hosting

Marshmallows for toasting

And caroling out in the snow

There'll be scary ghost stories

And tales of the glories of

Christmases long, long ago

It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

There'll be much mistltoeing

And hearts will be glowing

When love ones are near

It's The Most Wonderful Time

It's The Most Wonderful Time

It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

O Christmas Tree

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree!

How are thy leaves so verdant!

Not only in the summertime,

But even in winter is thy prime.

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,

Much pleasure doth thou bring me!

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,

For every year the Christmas tree,

Brings to us all both joy and glee.

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,

Much pleasure doth thou bring me!

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,

Thy candles shine out brightly!

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,

Thy candles shine out brightly!

Each bough doth hold its tiny light,

That makes each toy to sparkle bright.

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree,

Thy candles shine out brightly!

O Come, O Come, Emmanuel

Rev. Issac Watts

O Come, O Come, Emmanuel

And ransom captive Israel

That mourns in lonely exile here

Until the Son of God appears

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel

Shall come to thee O Israel

O come, thou rod of Jesse, free

Thine own from Satan's tyranny

From depths of of hell thy people save

And give them vict'ry o'er the grave

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel

Shall come to thee O Israel

O come, O Dayspring, come and cheer

Our spirits by thine advent here

And drive away the shaves of night

And pierce the clouds and bring us light

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel

Shall come to thee O Israel

O come, Thou Key of David, come

And open wide our heavenly home

Make safe the way that leads on high

And close the path to misery

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel

Shall come to thee O Israel

O come, O come, Thou Lord of might

Who to thy tribes, on Sinai's height

In ancient times did'st give the law

In cloud and majesty and awe

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel

Shall come to thee O Israel

Oh Holy Night

Oh holy night!

The stars are brightly shining

It is the night of the dear Savior's birth!

Long lay the world in sin and error pining

Till he appear'd 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

Oh hear the angel voices

Oh night divine

Oh night when Christ was born

Oh night divine

Oh night divine

Led by the light of Faith serenely beaming

With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand

So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming

Here come the wise men from Orient land

The King of Kings lay thus in lowly manger

In all our trials born to be our friend.

Truly He taught us to love one another

His law is love and His gospel is peace

Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother

And in His name all oppression shall cease

Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,

Let all within us praise His holy name.

Oh Little Town Of Bethlehem

Oh little town of Bethlehem, how still we see thee lie

Above thy deep and dreamless sleep the silent stars go by

Yet in the 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

Oh 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 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.

Oh 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 Emanuel.

Rudolph ...The Red Nosed Reindeer

You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen,

Comet and Cupid and Donder 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 could 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."

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.

Silver Bells

Jay Livingston and Ray Evans

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'll hear

Silver bells, silver bells

It's Christmas time in the city

Ring-a-ling, hear them sing

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'll hear

Silver bells, silver bells

It's Christmas time in the city

Ring-a-ling, hear them sing

Soon it will be Christmas day

Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

J. Fred Coots and Henry Gillespie

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;

Gonna find out Who's naughty and 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!

O! You better watch out!

You better not cry

Better not pout

I'm telling you why

Santa Claus is coming to town

Santa Claus is coming to town

Sleigh Ride

L. Anderson

Just hear those sleigh bells jingle-ing

Ring ting tingle-ing too

Come on, it's lovely weather

For a sleigh ride together with you

Outside the snow is falling

And friends are calling "You Hoo"

Come on, it's lovely weather

For a sleigh ride together with you

Giddy-yap giddy-yap giddy-yap let's go

Let's look at the snow

We're riding in a wonderland of snow

Giddy-yap giddy-yap giddy-yap it's grand

Just holding your hand

We're gliding along with the song

Of a wintry fairy land

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 sing a chorus or two

Come on, it's lovely weather

For a sleigh ride together with you

There's a birthday party at the home of Farmer Gray

It'll be the perfect ending of a perfect day

We'll be singing the songs we love to sing without a single stop

At the fireplace while we watch the chestnuts pop

Pop! Pop! Pop!

There's a happy feeling nothing in the world can buy

When they pass around the coffee and the pumpkin pie

It'll nearly be like a picture print by Currier and Ives

These wonderful things are the things

We remember all through our lives

What Child is This?

William C. Dix

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 the song on high,

The Virgin sings her lullaby:

Joy, joy, for Christ is born,

The Babe, the Son of Mary!

The Wassail Song

Here we come a-wassailing

Among the leaves so green,

Here we come a wand'ring,

So fair to be seen.

Love and joy come to you,

And to your wassail too,

And God bless you and send you a happy new year,

And God send you a happy new year.

We are not daily beggars

Who beg from door to door,

But we are neighbor's children

Whom you have seen before.

Love and joy come to you,

And to your wassail too,

And God bless you and send you a happy new year,

And God send you a happy new year.

We have a little purse

Made of ratching leather skin;

We want some of your small change

To line it well within.

Love and joy come to you,

And to your wassail too,

And God bless you and send you a happy new year,

And God send you a happy new year.

God bless the Master of this house,

Likewise the Mistress too;

And all the little children

That round the table go.

Love and joy come to you,

And to your wassail too,

And God bless you and send you a happy new year,

And God send you a happy new year.

Winter Wonderland

Dick Smith and Felix Bernard

Sleigh bells ring

are you listening

in the lane

snow is glistening

A beautiful sight

we're happy tonight

walking 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

walking in a winter wonderland

In the meadow we can build a snowman

Then pretend that he is Parson 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 that we've made

walking 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 alligators knock him down

When it snows

ain't it thrilling

Though your nose gets a chilling

We'll frolic and play

the Eskimo way

walking in a winter wonderland

Walking in a winter wonderland

walking in a winter wonderland

We Three Kings of Orient Are

We three Kings of Orient are;

Bearing gifts we traverse afar,

field 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

Gold I bring to crown him again

King forever, ceasing never

Over us all to reign.

Star of wonder, star of night,

Star with royal beauty bright

Westward leading, still proceeding

Guide us to thy perfect light.

Frankincense to offer have I;

Incense owns a Deity nigh;

Prayer and praising, all men raising,

Worship him God most high.

Star of wonder, star of night,

Star with royal beauty bright

Westward leading, still proceeding

Guide us to thy perfect light.

Myrrh is mine; it's bitter perfume

Breathes a life of gathering gloom;

Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying,

Sealed in the stone cold tomb.

Star of wonder, star of night,

Star with royal beauty bright

Westward leading, still proceeding

Guide us to thy perfect light.

Glorious now behold him arise,

King and God and Sacrafice.

Alleluia, Alleluia,

Earth to heaven replies.

Star of wonder, star of night,

Star with royal beauty bright

Westward leading, still proceeding

Guide us to thy perfect light.

White Christmas

Irving Berlin

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

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

While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks

While Shepherds watch their flocks by night

All seated on the ground

The angel of the Lord came down

And glory shone arond

"Fear not," said he for mighty dread

had seized their troubled mind

"Glad tidings of great joy I bring

To you and all man-kind"

"To you in David's town this day

Is born of David's line

The Savior who is Christ the Lord

And this shall me the sign

The heav'n'ly babe you there shall find

To human view displayed

All meanly wrapped in swathing bands

And in a manger laid"

Those spoke the seraph and forth-with

Appeared a shing throng

Of angels praising God who thus

Addressed their joyful song

"All glory be to God on high

And on the earth be peace

Goodwill hence-forth from heav'n to men

Begin and never cease"
