Lyrics

AWAY IN A MANGER 

Away in a manger, no crib for His 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

 

LITTLE TOWN OF BETHLEMHEM

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


WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS 

We wish you a Merry Christmas

We wish you a Merry Christmas

We wish you a Merry Christmas

And a happy new year 

Good tidings we bring to you and your kin

Good tidings for Christmas

And a happy new year


THE FIRST NOEL 

The First Noël the angel did say

Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay;

In fields as 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 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.


HARK! THE HERALD ANGELS SING 

Hark! the herald angels sing,

“Glory to the new-born King!

Peace on earth, and mercy mild,

God and sinners reconciled.”

Joyful, all ye nations, rise, Join the triumph of the skies;

With th’ angelic host proclaim, “Christ is born in Bethlehem.”

Hark! the herald angels sing, “Glory to the new-born King!


GOD REST YE 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 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 


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 other doth deface O tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy

O tidings of comfort and joy


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!


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. 

Yea, Lord, we greet thee, born this happy morning,

Jesus, to thee be all glory given.

Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing 


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 the dawn of redeeming grace 

Jesus Lord, at Thy birth

Jesus Lord, at Thy birth



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 heav’n and nature sing. 


No more let sins 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 IS NAMED 

Unto us a Child is born

A Son is given, the Promised One

Unto us a Child is born

And on His shoulders, all authority 

and He is named “Wonderful Counselor”

and He is named “Almighty God”

and He is named “Everlasting Father”

the “Prince of Peace”

the “Prince of Peace”
