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, But little Lord Jesus no crying he makes. I love thee, Lord Jesus! 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 my I pray. Bless all the dear children, In thy tender care. And take them to heaven, To be with thee there. Away on a hillside Upon a rough cross The suffering Saviour Died there for the lost. The grave could not hold Him In death where he lay, The conquering Saviour Arose the third day.The first Nowell the Angel did sayWas to three poor Shepherds in fields as they lay.In fields where they lay keeping their sheep,In a cold winter’s night that was so deep.Nowell, nowell, nowell, nowell,Born is the King of Israel.They looked up and saw a starShining in the East, beyond them far,And to the earth it gave great light,And so it continued, both day and night.Nowell, nowell, nowell, nowell,Born is the King of Israel.Then let us all with one accordSing praises to our heavenly Lord;That hath made heaven and earth of nought,And with his blood mankind hath bought.Nowell, nowell, nowell, nowell,Born is the King of Israel.If we in our time shall do wellWe shall be free from death and HellFor God hath prepared for us allA resting place in general.Nowell, nowell, nowell, nowell,Born is the King of Israel.

God rest you merry, gentlemen, Let nothing you dismay. For Jesus Christ our Savior, Was born on Christmas Day; To save us all from Satan’s power, When we were gone astray. O tidings of comfort and joy, For Jesus Christ our Savior Was born on Christmas day. In Bethlehem, in Jury, This blessed Babe was born, And laid within a manger, Upon this blessed morn; The which His mother Mary Did nothing take in scorn. 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:
Fear not, then said the angel, Let nothing you affright, This day is born a Savior, Of virtue, power, and might; So frequently to vanquish all, The friends of Satan quite; 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, Doth bring redeeming grace.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, good will to men,From heavens 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,Oer all the weary world;Above its sad and lowly plains,They bend on hovering wing.And ever oer its Babel sounds,The blessed angels sing.Yet with the woes of sin and strife,The world hath 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. Dashing thro the snow, In a one horse open sleigh, Oer the hills we go, Laughing all the way; Bells on bob tail ring, Making spirits bright, Oh what sport to ride and sing A sleighing song to night. Jingle bells, jingle bells, Jingle all the way; Oh! what joy it is to ride In a one horse open sleigh. Jingle bells, jingle bells, Jingle all the way; Oh! what joy it is to ride In a one horse open sleigh.
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 earth, the Savior reigns;Let men their songs employ;While fields and floods,Rocks, hills and plainsRepeat the sounding joy,Repeat the sounding joy,Repeat, repeat the sounding joy.He rules the world with truth and grace,And makes the nations proveThe glories of His righteousness,And wonders of His love,And wonders of His love,And wonders, wonders of His love. 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 Virgins womb: Very God, Begotten, not created; Sing, choirs of angels, Sing in exultation, Sing, all ye citizens of heaven above; Glory to God In the highest; Yea, Lord, we greet thee, Born this happy morning; Jesus, to thee be glory given; Word of the Father, Now in flesh appearing;O little town of Bethlehem,How still we see thee lie!Above thy deep and dreamless sleepThe silent stars go by.Yet in thy dark streets shinethThe everlasting Light;The hopes and fears of all the yearsAre met in thee to-night.
O morning stars, togetherProclaim the holy birth!And praises sing to God the King,And peace to men on earth.For Christ is born of MaryAnd gathered all above,While mortals sleep the angels keepTheir watch of wondering love.How silently, how silently,The wondrous gift is given;So God imparts to human heartsThe blessings of His Heaven.No ear may hear His coming,But in this world of sin,Where meek souls will receive Him still,The dear Christ enters in.O holy Child of Bethlehem,Descend to us, we pray!Cast out our sin and enter in,Be born in us to-day.We hear the Christmas angels,The great glad tidings tell;O come to us, abide with us,Our Lord Emmanuel! 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 loves pure light. Radiant beams from Thy holy face With dawn of redeeming grace, Jesus Lord, at Thy birth. Jesus Lord, at Thy birth. JOHN 3-16, JOHN 3-16, For God so loved the world that he, Gave his only begotten Son, That whosoever believeth in him, Should not perish but have, EVERLASTING LIFE
What child is this who, laid to rest On Marys lap is sleeping? Whom Angels greet with anthems sweet, While shepherds watch are keeping? This, this is Christ the King, Whom shepherds guard and Angels sing; Haste, haste, to bring Him laud, The Babe, the Son of Mary. Why lies He in such mean estate, Where ox and ass are feeding? Good christians, fear, for sinners here The silent Word is pleading. Nails, spear shall pierce Him through, The cross be borne for me, for you. Hail, hail the Word made flesh, The Babe, the Son of Mary.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 for you and your kin;We wish you a merry ChristmasAnd a Happy New Year!Remember Christ this ChristmasRemember Christ this ChristmasRemember Christ this ChristmasFor He came for youHe was born and he diedFor us crucifiedRemember Christ this ChristmasAnd be born again See him lying on a bed of straw; Draughty stable with an open door, Mary cradling the babe she bore; The prince of Glory is his name. Oh now carry me to Bethlehem To see the Lord, appear to men; Just as poor as was the stable then, The price of Glory when he came. Stars of silver sweep across the skies, To show where Jesus in the manger lies. Shepherds swiftly from your stupor rise To see the saviour of the world. Angels sing again the song you sang, Bring Gods glory to the heart of man; Sing that Bethlehem’s little baby can Be Salvation to the soul.
O Holy Night! The stars are brightly shining,It is the night of the dear Saviours birth.Long lay the world in sin and error pining.Till He appeared and the Spirit 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!O night divine, the night when Christ was born;O night, O Holy Night , O night divine!O night, O Holy Night , O night divine!Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand.Oer the world a star is sweetly gleaming,Now come the wisemen from out of the Orient land.The King of kings lay thus lowly manger;In all our trials born to be our friends.He knows our need, our weakness is no stranger,Behold your King! Before him lowly bend!Behold your King! Before him lowly bend! 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 meek and lowly, Lived on earth our Savior holy. 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. Not in that poor lowly stable, With the oxen standing by, We shall see Him, but in heaven, Set at Gods right hand on high; When like stars His children crowned, All in white shall be around.See amid the winters snow,Born for us on earth below,See the tender Lamb appears,Promised from eternal years.Hail, thou ever-blessed morn!Hail, redemptions happy dawn!Sing through all Jerusalem,Christ is born in Bethlehem.
Lo, within a manger liesHe who built the starry skies;He who throned in height sublimeSits amid the cherubim.Sacred infant, all divine,What a tender love was thine,Thus to come from highest blissDown to such a world as this.
