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

God of God, light of light
Lo, he abhors not the virgin’s womb
Very God, begotten not created
O come…

Sing, choirs of angels, sing in exultation
Sing, all ye citizens of heaven above
Glory to God in the highest
O come…

It Came Upon the Midnight Clear

It Came Upon the Midnight Clear
That glorious song of old
From angels bending near the earth
To touch their harps of gold
‘Peace on the earth, goodwill to men,
From heaven’s all-gracious King’
The world in solemn stillness lay
To hear the angels sing

Still through the cloven skies they come
With peaceful wings unfurled
And still their heavenly music floats
O’er all the weary world
Above its sad and lovely plains
They bend on hovering wing
And ever o’er its Babel sounds
The blessed angels sing

For lo the days are hastening on
By prophet bards foretold
When with the ever-circling years
Comes round the age of gold
When peace shall over all the earth
Its ancient splendours fling
And the whole world give back the song
Which now the angels sing

Yet with the woes of sin and strife
The world has suffered long
Beneath the angel strain have rolled
Two thousand years of wrong
And man at war with man hears not
The love song which they bring
O hush the noise ye men of strife
And hear the angels sing

Love Came Down at Christmas

Love Came Down at Christmas
Love all lovely, love divine
Love was born at Christmas
Star and angel gave the sign

Worship we the Godhead
Love incarnate, love divine
Worship we our Jesus
What shall be our sacred sign?

Love came down
And shone around
Love came down to lift us up

Love shall be our token
Love be yours and love be mine
Love for God and all men
Love shall be our gift, our sign

Love came down at Christmas (x3)
Jesus is our gift, our sign

It was on a Starry Night

It was on a Starry Night
When the hills were bright
Earth lay sleeping, sleeping calm and still
Then in a cattle shed
In a manger bed
A boy was born, King of all the world

And all the angels sang for him
The bells of heaven rang for him
For a boy was born, King of all the world

Soon the shepherds came that way
Where the baby lay
And were kneeling, kneeling by his side
And their hearts believed again
For the peace of men
For a boy was born, King of all the world

In the Bleak Midwinter

In the Bleak Midwinter
Frosty wind made moan
Earth stood hard as iron
Water like a stone
Snow had fallen, snow on snow
Snow on snow
In the bleak midwinter
Long ago

Our God, heav’n cannot hold him
Nor earth sustain
Heav’n and earth shall flee away
When he comes to reign
In the bleak midwinter
A stable place sufficed
The Lord God Almighty
Jesus Christ

Angels and archangels
May have gathered there
Cherubim and seraphim
Thronged the air
But, only his mother
In her maiden bliss
Worshipped the beloved
With a kiss

What can I give him
Poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd
I would bring a lamb
If I were a wise man
I would do my part
Yet what I can, I give him
Give my heart

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
Looked down where he lay
The little Lord Jesus
Asleep on the hay

The cattle are lowing
The baby awakes
Yet little Lord Jesus
No crying he makes
I love thee, Lord
Look down from the sky
And stay by my side
Until 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

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 alleluia
Christ the Saviour is born
Christ the Saviour is born

Silent night, holy night
Son of God, love’s pure light
Radiant beams thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus, Lord at thy birth
Jesus, Lord at thy birth

This Christmas

This Christmas
May the stars shine bright
May the love of Christ
Light every night

This Christmas
Through the winter cold
May the love of God
Warm every soul

For hope has come
For everyone this Christmas
Born for us, a Saviour here on earth
Sing for joy
Amidst the winter’s darkness
Hope has come for everyone on earth

This Christmas
May the poor be fed
May you find a place
To lay your head

This Christmas
May the walls come down
Every heart and home
Be holy ground

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

Christ, by highest heaven 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 man to dwell
Jesus, our Immanuel
Hark, the herald angels sing
Glory to the new-born King

Hail the heaven-born Prince of Peace
Hail the Son of righteousness
Light and life to all he brings
Risen 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 new-born King
