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 heav'n, and heav'n and nature sing

We will sing, sing, sing
Joy to the world
We will sing, sing, 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 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 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 heav'nly song?

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
Jesus, Lord of heav'n and earth
Mary, Joseph, lend your aid
With us, sing our Saviour's birth

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 host proclaim
Christ is born in Bethlehem
Hark! The herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn King!

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

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
Hark! the herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn King

LITTLE DRUMMER BOY

Come they told me, pa rum pum pum pum
A new born King to see, pa rum pum pum pum
Our finest gifts we bring, pa rum pum pum pum
To lay before the King, pa rum pum pum pum
Rum pum pum pum, Rum pum pum pum
So to honor Him, pa rum pum pum pum,
When we come.

Baby Jesus, pa rum pum pum pum
I am a poor boy too, pa rum pum pum pum
I have no gift to bring, pa rum pum pum pum
That's fit to give our King, pa rum pum pum pum
Rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum
Shall I play for you! Pa rum pum pum
On my drum.

Mary nodded, pa rum pum pum pum
The ox and lamb kept time, pa rum pum pum pum
I played my drum for Him, pa rum pum pum
I played my best for Him, pa rum pum pum pum
Rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum
Then He smiled at me, pa rum pum pum pum
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
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heav'nly hosts sing Hallelujah
Christ the Saviour is born
Christ the Saviour is born

Silent night, holy night
Son of God loves pure light
Radiant beings from Thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus, Lord at Thy birth
Jesus, Lord at Thy birth

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 us adore Him
Christ the Lord

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

Yea, Lord we greet Thee
Born this happy morning
Jesus, to Thee be all glory giv'n
Word of the Father
Now in flesh appearing

O HOLY NIGHT

O holy night, the stars are brightly shining
It is the night of the 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, oh hear the angel voices
Oh night divine, oh night when Christ was born
Oh night divine, oh night, oh night divine 

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

Christ is the Lord, oh praise His name forever
His power and glory evermore proclaim

His power and glory evermore proclaim

Fall on your knees, oh hear the angel voices
Oh night divine, oh night when Christ was born
Oh night divine, oh night when Christ was born

MARY'S BOY CHILD

Long time ago in Bethlehem
So the Holy Bible says
Mary's boy child, Jesus Christ
Was born on Christmas Day

While shepherds watched their flocks by night
They saw a bright new shining star
They heard a choir sing a song
The music seemed to come from afar

Hark now hear the angels sing
A King was born today
And man will live forever more
Because of Christmas Day
Trumpets sound, and angels sing
Listen to what they say
That man will live forever more
Because of Christmas Day

Now Joseph and His wife Mary
Came to Bethlehem that night
They found no place to bear their child
Not a single room was in sight

By and by they found a little nook
In a stable all forlorn
And in a manger cold and dark
Mary's little boy was born

I wanna wish you

I wanna wish you
A Merry Christmas
From the bottom
Of my heart

LIFT YOUR NAME UP

I come to You, with a grateful heart
For the things You've done
I come to You, giving all my praise
For this day You've made

You're amazing
Forever reigning, my God
There's no one like You
None beside You, my God

Everywhere I go
I will lift Your name up
In all I do
I will give You praise
Everywhere I go
I will lift Your name up
I'll lift Your name up
I lift Your name up
I lift Your name up
I lift Your name up
I lift Your name up

I come to You, with a sacrifice
Lord to lift You high
I come to You, every night and day
Lord to give You praise

You're amazing
Forever reigning, my God
There's no one like You
None beside You, my God

Whatever comes my way
I will lift You up
Giving You my praise
I will never stop
You're surrounding me
Your love overflows
I will lift Your name
Everywhere I go

ALIVE

I was lost with a broken heart
You picked me up, now I'm set apart
From the ash I am born again
Forever safe in the Savior's hands
You are more than my words could say
I'll follow You Lord for all my days
I'll fix my eyes, follow in Your ways
Forever free in unending grace

'Cause You are, You are, You are my freedom
We lift You higher, lift You higher
Your love, Your love, Your love never ending

You are alive in us, nothing can take Your place
You are all we need, Your love has set us free

In the midst of the darkest night
Let Your love be the shining light
Breaking chains that were holding me
You sent Your Son down and set me free
Everything of this world will fade
I'm pressing on till I see Your face
I will live that Your will be done
I won't stop till Your Kingdom come

'Cause You are, You are, You are my freedom
We lift You higher, lift You higher
Your love, Your love, Your love never ending
