  • 1. Happy Christmas Away in a Manger Little Donkey Once in Royal Davids City Silent Night Little Town of Bethlehem When a child is born We 3 Kings Little Jesus Sweetly

2. O Little Town of Bethlehem 3. 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 O Little Town of Bethlehem 4. For Christ is born of Mary And gathered all above While mortals sleep, the angels keep Their watch of wondering love O 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 his His coming, But in this world of sin, Where meek souls will receive him still, The dear Christ enters in. 5. O holy Child of Bethlehem Descend to us, we pray Cast out our sin and enter in Be born to us today We hear the Christmas angels The great glad tidings tell O come to us, abide with us Our Lord Emmanuel 6. Once in Royal Davids City 7. Once in royal Davids city Stood a lowly cattle shed, Where a mother laid her baby In a manger for His bed. Mary was that mother mild, Jesus Christ her little child. He came down to earth from heaven Who is God and Lord of all, And His shelter was a stable, And His cradle was a stall. With the poor, and mean, and lowly Lived on earth our Saviour holy. 8. And through all His wondrous childhood He would honour and obey, Love, and watch the lowly maiden In whose tender arms He lay. Christian children all must be Mild, obedient, good as He. For He is our childhoods pattern: Day by day like us He grew; He was little, weak and helpless; Tears and smiles like us He knew; And He feeleth for our sadness, And He shareth in our gladness. 9. And our eyes at last shall see Him, Through His own redeeming love; For that Child so dear and gentle Is our Lord in heaven above; And He leads His children on To the place where He is gone. 10. Little DonkeyLittle Donkey Little donkey, little donkey, On the dusty road, Got to keep on, plodding onwards, With your precious load. - Been a long time, little donkey, Thro the winter night, Dont give up now, little donkey, Bethlehems in sight. - Ring out those bells tonight, Bethlehem, Bethlehem, Follow that star tonight, Bethlehem, Bethlehem. - Little donkey, little donkey, Had a heavy load, Little donkey, carry Mary, Safely on her way. 11. 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 Stille Nacht! Heil'ge Nacht! Alles schlft; einsam wacht Nur das traute hoch heilige Paar. Holder Knab' im lockigen Haar, Schlafe in himmlischer Ruh! Schlafe in himmlischer Ruh! December 24, 1818 Joseph Mohr journeyed to the home of musician-schoolteacher Franz Gruber who lived in an apartment over the schoolhouse in nearby Arnsdorf (Austria). He showed his friend the poem and asked him to add a melody and guitar accompaniment so that it could be sung at Midnight Mass. Franz Gruber Joseph Mohr 12. Silent night, holy night! Shepherds quake at the sight Glories stream from heaven afar Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia! Christ, the Saviour is born Christ, the Saviour 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 " 13. We Three Kings 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 14. Born a King on Bethlehem's plain Gold I bring to crown Him again King forever, ceasing never Over us all to rein O Star of wonder, star of night Star with royal beauty bright Westward leading, still proceeding Guide us to Thy perfect light 15. Frankincense to offer have I Incense owns a Deity nigh Pray'r and praising, all men raising Worship Him, God most high O Star of wonder, star of night Star with royal beauty bright Westward leading, still proceeding Guide us to Thy perfect light 16. Myrrh is mine, its bitter perfume Breathes of life of gathering gloom Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying Sealed in the stone-cold tomb O Star of wonder, star of night Star with royal beauty bright Westward leading, still proceeding Guide us to Thy perfect light 17. Glorious now behold Him arise King and God and Sacrifice Alleluia, Alleluia Earth to heav'n replies O Star of wonder, star of night Star with royal beauty bright Westward leading, still proceeding Guide us to Thy perfect light 18. Glorious now behold Him arise King and God and Sacrifice Alleluia, Alleluia Earth to heav'n replies O Star of wonder, star of night Star with royal beauty bright Westward leading, still proceeding Guide us to Thy perfect light 19. 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 bright sky lookd down where he lay, The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay. 20. 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 side till morning is nigh. 21. 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. 22. When a child is bornWhen a child is born - A ray of hope Flickers in the sky A tiny star Lights up way up high All across the land Dawns a brand new morn This comes to pass when a child is born - A silent wish sails the seven seas The winds of change whisper in the trees And the walls of doubt crumble tossed and torn This comes to pass when a child is born - A rosy dawn settles all around You got the feel youre on solid ground For a spell or two no one seems forlorn This comes to pass when a child is born 23. Little Jesus, sweetly sleep, do not stir; We will lend a coat of fur. We will rock you, rock you, rock you, We will rock you, rock you, rock you. See the fur to keep you warm, Snugly 'round your tiny form. Mary's little baby, sleep, sweetly sleep, Sleep in comfort, slumber deep. We will rock you, rock you, rock you, We will rock you, rock you, rock you. We will serve you all we can, Darling, darling little man. Little Jesus Sweetly Sleep 24. Santa used to be green ! 25. Jingle BellsJingle Bells Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells Jingle all the way Oh what fun it is to ride on a one horse open sleigh, Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells Jingle all the way, Oh what fun it is to ride on a one horse open sleigh, - Were dashing through the snow, In our one horse open sleigh Across the fields we go Were laughing all the way, The bells of bobtails ring They are making spirits bright Oh what fun it is to ride And sing a song tonight - (Repeat chorus) 26. White ChristmasWhite Christmas - Im dreaming of a White Christmas Just like the ones I used to know, Where the tree-tops glisten, And children listen, To hear, sleigh bells in the snow. - Im dreaming of a white Christmas, With evry Christmas card I write, May your days be merry and bright, And may all your Christmass be white. 27. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
