      LYRICS

      O COME, O COME, EMMANUEL

      O come, O come, Emmanuel,
      And ransom captive Israel,
      That mourns in lonely exile here,
      Until the Son of God appear.
      Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
      Shall come to you, O Israel!

      O come, O Thou Dayspring, come and cheer
      Our spirits by Thine advent here.
      Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
      And death’s dark shadows put to flight.
      Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
      Shall come to you, O Israel!

      O come, O Thou Wisdom from on high,
      And order all things far and nigh;
      To us the path of knowledge show
      And cause us in her ways to go.
      Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
      Shall come to you, O Israel!

      O come, Desire of nations, bind
      All peoples in one heart and mind.
      Bid envy, strife and quarrels cease
      Fill all the world with heaven’s peace.
      Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
      Shall come to you, O Israel!

      Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
      Shall come to you, O Israel!

      WHAT CHILD IS THIS?

      What child is this, who, laid to rest
      On Mary’s 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!

      So, bring him incense, gold, and myrrh;
      Come, peasant, king, to own him.
      The King of kings salvation brings,
      Let loving hearts enthrone him.

      This, this is Christ the King
      Whom shepherds guard and angels sing
      Haste, haste to bring him laud,
      The babe, the son of Mary

      Nails, spear shall pierce Him through,
      The cross He bore for me, for you.
      Hail, hail the Word made flesh,
      The babe, the son of Mary!

      CHRISTMAS CAROL SING-ALONG

      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!

      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.

      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!

      The first nowell the angel did say,
      was to certain poor shepherds in fields where they lay;
      In fields where they lay keeping their sheep,
      on a cold winter’s night that was so deep.
      Nowell, Nowell, Nowell, Nowell
      Born is the King of Israel!

      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.

      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 angelic hosts proclaim, “Christ is born in Bethlehem!”
      Hark! The herald angels sing, “Glory to the newborn King.”

      Deck the halls with boughs of holly,
      Fa la la la la, la la la la.
      ‘Tis the season to be jolly
      Fa la la la la, la la la la.
      Don we now our gay apparel
      Fa la la la la la la la la.
      Troll the ancient yuletide carol.
      Fa la la la la, la la la la.

      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.

      We wish you a merry Christmas,
      We wish you a merry Christmas
      We wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year.

      COME, THOU LONG-EXPECTED JESUS

      Come, Thou long-expected Jesus
      Born to set Thy people free;
      From our fears and sins release us,
      Let us find our rest in Thee.
      Israel’s strength and consolation,
      Hope of all the earth Thou art;
      Dear desire of every nation,
      Joy of every longing heart.

      Born Thy people to deliver,
      Born a child and yet a King,
      Born to reign in us forever,
      Now Thy gracious kingdom bring.
      By Thine own eternal Spirit
      Rule in all our hearts alone;
      By Thine all sufficient merit,
      Raise us to Thy glorious throne.

      By Thine own eternal Spirit
      Rule in all our hearts alone;
      By Thine all sufficient merit,
      Raise us to Thy glorious throne.
