GO TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN

Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go Tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born

When I was a seeker
I sought both night and day
I asked the Lord to help me
And He showed me the way.....the way!

Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go Tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born

He made me a watchman
Upon the city walls
And if I am a Christian
I am the least of all.....of all!

Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go Tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born
Go tell it on the mountain
Go tell it on the mountain

Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go Tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born

Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go Tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born


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 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 cradle till 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


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

Our Saviour Christ and His lady
On Christmas day, on Christmas day
Our Saviour Christ and His lady
On Christmas day in the morning
On Christmas day in the morning

And all the angels in heaven shall sing
On Christmas day, on Christmas day
And all the souls on earth shall sing
On Christmas day in the morning


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......oh

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.....oh

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 sacrifice
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, earth to the heavens reply .....oh

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


DECK THE HALLS

Deck the halls with boughs of holly
Fa la la la la La la la la
Tis’ the season to be jolly
Fa la la la la La la la la
Troll the ancient yule tide carol
Fa la la La la la La la la

See the blazing Yule before us
Fa la la la la La la la la
Strike the harp and join the chorus
Fa la la la la La la la la
Follow me in merry measure
Fa la la La la la La la la
While I tell of Yule tide treasure
Fa la la la la La la la la

Fast away the old year passes
Fa la la la la La la la la
Hail the new ye lads and lasses
Fa la la la la La la la la
Sing ye joyous all together
Fa la la La la la La la la
Heedless of the wind and weather
Fa la la la la La la la la
Fa la la la la La la la la


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 street 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 wondrous love
Oh morning stars together
Proclaim the holy birth
And praises sing to God the King
And peace to men on earth

Oh holy child of Bethlehem
Descend to us we pray
Cast out our sin and enter n
Be born in us today
We hear the Christmas Angel
The great glad tidings tell
Oh come to us abide with us
Our LORD Emanuel


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 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

They entered in those wise men three
So reverently on bended knee
And offered there in His presence
Gold and myrrh and frankincense
Noel... Noel... Noel.... Noel
Born is the King of Israel


GOD REST YOU MERRY GENTLEMEN

God rest ye merry gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
Remember Christ our Saviour
Was born on Christmas day
To save us all from satan’s power
When we had gone astray
Oh tidings of comfort and joy
Comfort and joy
Oh tidings of comfort and joy

In Bethlehem in Jewry
This blessed babe was born
And laid within a manger
Upon this blessed morn
For which His Mother Mary
Did nothing take in scorn
Oh tidings of comfort and joy
Comfort and joy
Oh 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
Oh tidings of comfort and joy
Comfort and joy
Oh tidings of comfort and joy


IT CAME UPON A MIDNIGHT CLEAR

It came upon a 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 silent stillness lay
To hear the angels sing

Til thru thru the cloven skies they came
With peaceful wings unfurled
And still their heavenly music floats
O’er all the weary world

Above this sad and lowly place
They bend on hovering wings
And ever o’er its Babel sounds
The blessed angels sing

O ye beneath life’s crushing load
Whose forms are bending low
Who toiled 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


HARK THE HERALD ANGELS SING

Hark the herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn 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 hosts proclaim
Christ is born in Bethlehem
Hark the herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn King

Hark the herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn 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 hosts proclaim
Christ is born in Bethlehem
Hark the herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn King

Christ by highest heaven adored
Christ the everlasting Lord
Late in time behold Him come
Offspring of the virgin womb
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see
Hail the incarnate deity
Pleased as man with men to dwell
Jesus our Emmanuel
Hark the herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn King

While 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
Risen with healing in His wings
Light and life to all He brings
Hail the son of righteousness
Hail the heaven born Prince of Peace
Hark the herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn King


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 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

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