"Sweet little Jesus boy They made you be born in a manger. Sweet little Holy Child Didn't know who you was. Didn't know you'd come to save us, Lord; To take our sins away. Our eyes was blind, we couldn't see, We didn't know who you was. Long time ago, you was born, Born in a manger low, Sweet little Jesus Boy. The world treat you mean, Lord, Treat me mean too, But that's how things is down here We don't know who you is. Sweet little Jesus Boy, born long time ago. Sweet little Holy Child, And we didn't know who you was."

"O little town of Bethlehem, How still we see thee lie! Above thy deep and dreamless sleep The silent stars go by; Yet in thy dark streets shineth The everlasting Light; The hopes and fears of all the years Are met in thee tonight. How silently, how silently, The wondrous gift is given! So God imparts to human hearts The 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. Oh holy child of Bethlehem descend to us we pray Cast out our sin and enter in - be born to us this day We hear the Christmas angels – the great glad tidings tell Oh come to us, abide with us, our Lord Emmanuel Oh come to us, abide with us, our Lord Emmanuel"

"Some children see Him lily white, The baby Jesus born this night. Some children see Him lily white, With tresses soft and fair. Some children see Him bronzed and brown, The Lord of heav'n to earth come down. Some children see Him bronzed and brown, With dark and heavy hair. Some children see Him almond-eyed, This Savior whom we kneel beside. Some children see Him almond-eyed, With skin of yellow hue. Some children see Him dark as they, Sweet Mary's Son to whom we pray. Some children see him dark as they, And, ah! they love Him, too! The children in each different place Will see the baby Jesus' face Like theirs but bright with heavenly grace, And filled with holy light. O lay aside each earthly thing And with thy heart as offering, Come worship now the infant King."

"Sleep little baby, sleep 'til the morning comes Mama will keep you from all harm Sleep little baby under the western sky I'll sing you a desert lullaby Sleep little baby, sleep on your mama's knee Don't call the wolf and coyote Sleep little baby, hush baby don't you cry I'll sing you a desert lullaby Dream little baby, dream of a valley green Far over mountains by the sea Dream little baby, one day no more you'll roam Then you'll awake and find a home Sleep little baby, sleep 'til the morning comes Mama will keep you from all harm Sleep little baby under the Western sky I'll sing you a desert lullaby"

"Snow falling whisper I thought I heard your voice Reading from the pages of a storybook I thought I heard a reason to lay down in the cold Maybe it wasn’t you I heard after all Years go by like water your love holds me together I wonder as I wander the glory of it all I see you in the stars those northern lights proclaim Somewhere more beautiful than I have ever been Your every season brings new mercy to the Earth And all the angels sing in honor of your birth Breathe into me lift me up and wash me clean Restore unto me your everlasting Peace In the bleak midwinter Frosty windsong blow My soul is hard as iron and my face set like a stone Thrill of hope rush through me and oh when yonder breaks Carry me higher than the shadows I pray Your every season brings new mercy to the Earth And all the angels sing in honor of your birth"

"Away in a manger, no crib for His 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 poor Baby wakes But little Lord Jesus no crying He makes I love Thee, Lord Jesus look down from the sky And take us to heaven 'til 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 take us to heaven to live with thee there And take us to heaven To live with thee there"

"This is the time so well we love
The time of all the year
When winter calls with chilling breath
For fireside and good cheer
A time for man and beast to stand
And feel the season turn
To watch the stars for secret signs
And God’s true lessons learned
For the time when the corn is all in to the barn
The old cow’s breath’s a frosty wine
When the morn along the fallow field
Doth silver shine

Then when called morning’s radiant star
Shines over hill and glade
We know and knew that little babe
Is born to us this day
And man and beast and bird and tree
Each one in his own place
We bow our hearts and thank our God
For winter rest and Grace
For the time when the corn is all in to the barn
The old cow’s breath’s a frosty wine
And the morn along the fallow field
Doth silver shine"
