God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

God rest ye merry Gentlemen, let nothing you dismay

Remember 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 this 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.

 

We Three Kings

We three kings of Orient are

Bearing gifts we travel afar

Field and fountain, hills 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.

O Star of Wonder, star of night

Star with royal beauty bright

Westward leading, still proceeding

Guide us to thy perfect light

 

Little Drummer Boy

Come, they told me, pa-rum-pum-pum-pummmm

A newborn king to see pa-rum-pum-pum pummmm

Our finest gifts we bring pa-rum-pum-pum pummmm

To lay before our king pa-rum-pum-pum pummmm,

rum-pum-pum pummmm, rum-pum-pum pummmm

So, to honor him pa-rum-pum-pum pummmm

When we come

 

Mary nodded, pa-rum-pum-pum pummmm

The ox and lamb kept time, pa-rum-pum-pum pummmm

I played my drum for him, pa-rum-pum-pum pummmm

I played my best for him, pa-rum-pum-pum pummmm

rum-pum-pum pummmm, rum-pum-pum pummmm,

Then he smiled at me

Me and my drum

 

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

Glory streams from heaven afar.

Heavenly hosts sing “Hallelujah!”

Jesus, Lord at thy birth, Jesus, Lord at thy birth.

 

Jingle Bells

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way

Oh what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh, OH!

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way

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

 

Dashing through the snow in a one horse open sleigh

O’er the fields we go laughing all the way

Bells on bob tails ring, making spirits bright

What fun it is to laugh and sing a sleigh-ing song tonight, OH!

 

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way

Oh what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh, OH!

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way

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

 

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,

Had to shout it out with glee

Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer

You’ll go down in history!

 

What Child is This

What child is this who lay to rest on Mary’s lap is sleeping?

Whom angels greet with anthems sweet

While shepherds’ watch is 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 lambs are feeding?

Good Christian, fear, for sinners here,

The silent Word is pleading

Nails, spear shall pierce him through,

The cross be borne for me, for you

Haste, haste to bring him laud

The babe, the son of Mary

 

O Come O Come Emmanuel

O Come O come Emmanuel, and ransom captive Israel

That mourns in lonely exile here

Until the son of God appear.

REJOICE!    (soft) Rejoice!

Emmanuel shall ransom captive Israel

 

O Come desire of nations, bind

All peoples in one heart and mind.

Bid envy, strife and quarrels cease

Fill the whole world with heaven’s peace.

REJOICE!    (soft) Rejoice!

Emmanuel shall ransom captive Israel

 

O Come, All Ye Faithful

O Come, all ye faithful, joyfull 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

 

Yea, Lord, we greet thee,

Born this happy morning

Jesus, to thee be all 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

 

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.

 

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.

 

Angels We Have Heard on High

Angels we have heard on high

Sweetly singing over the plains

And the mountains in reply, echo back their joyous strain:

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

 

 

O Holy Night

O Holy night, the stars are brightly shining

It is the night of our dear savior’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, Oh night when Christ was born

O night divine, Oh night, Oh night divine.

Good tidings for Christmas and a happy new year

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. "

 

 

Carol of the Bells

Hark how the bells, sweet Silver bells

All seem to say, “Throw cares away!

Christmas is here, bringing good cheer

To young and old, meek and the bold.

Ding dong ding dong, that is their song

With joyful ring, all caroling

One seems to hear words of good cheer

From everywhere, filling the air.

 

Oh how they pound raising their sound

O’er hill and dale telling their tale

Gaily they ring while people sing

Songs of good cheer, Christmas is here

Merry, merry, merry merry Christmas

Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas!

On on they send, on without end

Their joyful tone to every home
