"The world is old tonight – the world is old The stars around the fold do show their light Do show their light And so they did – and so – a thousand years ago And so we’ll do good Lad’s when we lie cold The world is still tonight – the world is still The snow on vale and hill like wool lies white Like wool lies white And so it did – and so – a thousand years ago And so we’ll do my love when we like will And so they did – and so – a thousand years ago And so we’ll do good Lad’s when we lie cold"

"Oh 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 Adeste fideles læti triumphantes, Venite, venite in Bethlehem. Natum videte Regem angelorum: Venite adoremus Venite adoremus Venite adoremus Dominum. Sing choirs of angels, Sing in exultation, O sing, all ye Citizens of heaven above; Glory to God, Glory in the highest O come let us adore Him, O come let us adore Him O come let us adore him, Christ the Lord O come let us adore him, Christ the Lord"

"Tears are falling, hearts are breaking How we need to hear from God You've been promised, we've been waiting Welcome Holy Child Welcome Holy Child Hope that You don't mind our manger How I wish we could have known But long-awaited Holy Stranger Make Yourself at home Please make Yourself at home Bring Your peace into our violence Bid our hungry souls be filled Word now breaking Heaven's silence Welcome to our world Welcome to our world Fragile finger sent to heal us Tender brow prepared for thorn Tiny heart whose blood will save us Unto us is born Unto us is born So wrap our injured flesh around You Breathe our air and walk our sod Rob our sins and make us holy Perfect Son of God Perfect Son of God Welcome to our world"

"Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel Born is the King of Israel Mary, Mary had a little baby Yes, pretty little baby Yes, pretty little baby Glory be to the newborn King A star shining, shining on the manger Yes, shining on the manger Yes, welcoming a stranger Glory be to the newborn King Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel Born is the King of Israel The first Noel, the angels did say Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay In fields where they lay keeping their sheep On a cold winter's night that was so deep Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel Born is the King of Israel They looked up and saw a star Shining in the East beyond them far And to the earth it gave great light And so it continued both day and night Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel Born is the King of Israel Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel Born is the King of Israel Some call Him Emmanuel, think I'll call him Jesus Yes, think I'll call him Jesus Yes, pretty little Jesus Glory be to the newborn King"

"In this our happy Christmastide The joyful bells are ringing; To praise be all our pow'rs applied, God's grace and mercy singing; In Him by whom the world was made, Now in the lowly manger laid, Rejoice we in the spirit; Thy praise, O Savior, we will sound Unto the earth's remotest bound, That all the world shall hear it. A little Son, the Virgin-born, True God from everlasting To rescue us who were forlorn, His lot with us is casting; It moved His tender heart to see This world of sin and misery In condemnation lying; Therefore He came from realms above Down to our earth, drawn by His love, To sooth our grief and sighing. As darkest night must fade and die Before the sun's appearing, So fades my grief away, when I Think on these tidings cheering, That God from all eternity Hath loved the world, and hath on me Bestowed His grace and favor; I'll ne'er forget the angels' strain: Peace--peace on earth, good will to men, To you is born a Savior!"

"Sing sweet and low your lullaby till angels say, ""Amen."" A mother tonight is rocking a cradle in Bethlehem While wise men follow through the dark a star that beckons them. A mother tonight is rocking a cradle in Bethlehem. ""A little child shall lead them,"" the prophets said of old. In storm and tempest keep 'em until the bells is tolled. Sing sweet and low your lullaby till angels say, ""Amen."" A mother tonight is rocking a cradle in Bethlehem. Sing sweet and low your lullaby."

"Good people all, this Christmas time, Consider well and bear in mind What our good God for us has done, In sending His belovd Son.With Mary holy we should pray To God with love this Christmas Day In Bethlehem upon the morn There was a blest Messiah born. The night before that happy tide The noble virgin and her guide Were long time seeking up and down To find a lodging in the town. But mark how all things came to pass From every door repelled, alas! As long foretold, their refuge all Was but a humble oxen stall. Near Bethlehem did shepherds keep Their flocks of lambs and feeding sheep To whom God's angels did appear Which put the shepherds in great fear. Prepare and go - the angels said To Bethlehem Be Not Afraid For there you’ll find upon this morn A princely babe, Sweet Jesus born."

"There's no room here There's no room there We'll have to find some place soon Time isn't waiting There's no hesitating We can't be out under the moon It's far too cold out But no way to hold out Hold out for anyplace grand The innkeeper's spoken The stable is open I'm sorry it's not what we planned not what we planned It's a bare bones and beautiful Christmas Here in a Bethlehem stall It's a bare bones and beautiful Christmas Changing the world for us all Changing the world for us all he's Changing the world for us all Nothing that I can do Everything's up to you Baby Sweet Baby draws near Pushing past agony Everything's happening Heavenly Christ Child is here He is here Everyone's coming out Everyone's calling out Angels sing Goodwill, Angels sing Goodwill and peace on Earth"
