Angels We Have Heard on High

1.Angels we have heard on high,
Singing sweetly through the night,
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their brave delight.

Refrain:

Gloria in excelsis Deo,
Gloria in excelsis Deo.

2. Shepherds, why this jubilee?
Why these songs of happy cheers?
What great brightness did you see?
What glad tidings did you hear?

3. Come to Bethlehem and see
Him whose birth the angels sing;
Come adore on bending knees,
Christ, the Lord, the new born king.

4. See Him in a manger laid
Whom the angels praise above;
Mary, Joseph, lend your aid,
While we raise our hearts in love.

Away in a Manger

1.
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

2.
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 be my side until morning is nigh.

3.
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.


Go Tell It on the Mountains

Refrain:

Go tell it on the mountains,
Over the hills and everywhere;
Go tell it on the mountains,
That Jesus Christ is born!

1.
While shepherds kept their watching
O’er silent flocks by night;
Behold through the heavens,
There shone a holy light.

2.
The shepherd feared and trembled,
When lo! Above the earth,
Rang out the angel chorus,
That hailed our Savior’s birth.

3.
Down in a lowly manger
The humble Christ was born,
And brought us God’s salvation
That blessed Christmas morn.

O Come , All Ye Faithful

1.
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.

Refrain:

O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him Christ, the Lord.

2.
O sing choirs of angels,
Sing in exultation!
O sing, all ye citizens of heaven above!
Glory to God all glory in the highest!

3.
Yea, Lord we greet thee,
Born this happy morning,
O Jesus, to Thee be all glory given;
Word of the Father,
Now in flesh appearing!

O Come, O Come, Emmanuel

1.
O come, O come, Emmanuel,
And ransom captive Israel,
That mourns in lonely exile here,
Until the son of God appear.

Refrain:
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to Thee, O Israel!

2.
O come, Thou Dayspring, come and cheer
Our spirits by Then advent here;
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
And death’s dark shadows put to fight.

3.
O come, 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.

4.
O come, Desire of nations, bind
In one the hearts of all mankind;
Bid Thou our sad divisions cease.
And be Thyself our King of peace.
