O Come, All Ye Faithful

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!

Sing, choirs of angels;

sing in exultation;

sing, all ye citizens of heaven above!

Glory to God, all

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!

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!

Angels We Have Heard on High

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! 

Away in a Manger

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.

It Came upon the Midnight Clear

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 all,

from heaven’s all-gracious King”:

the world in solemn stillness lay,

to hear the angels sing.

The First Noel

The first Noel the angel 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.

We Three Kings of Orient Are

We three kings of Orient are;

bearing gifts we traverse afar,

field and fountain, moor and mountain,

following yonder star.

O star of wonder, star of night,

star with royal beauty bright,

westward leading, still proceeding,

guide us to thy perfect light!

Silent Night! Holy Night!

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 Al-le-lu-ia:

Christ the Savior is born;

Christ the Savior is born!

Jingle Bells

Dashing through the snow

in a one-horse open sleigh,

O’er the fields we go, 

laughing all the way.

Bells on bob-tails ring,

making spirits bright.

What fun it is to ride and sing

a sleighing song tonight, oh!

Jingle bells, jingle bells, 

jingle all the way.

Oh what fun it is to ride

in a one-horse open sleigh, hey!

Jingle bells, jingle bells,

jingle all the way.

Oh what fun it is to ride

in a one-horse open sleigh!

Feliz Navidad

Feliz Navidad,

Feliz Navidad,

Feliz Navidad,

Próspero año y felicidad.

Feliz Navidad,

Feliz Navidad,

Feliz Navidad,

Próspero año y felicidad.

I wanna wish you a merry Christmas,

I wanna wish you a merry Christmas,

I wanna wish you a merry Christmas,

From the bottom of my heart.

Rudolph, the Red Nosed Reindeer

You know Dasher and Dancer

and Prancer and Vixen,

Comet and Cupid and

Donner and Blitzen,

But do you recall,

The most famous reindeer of all?

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

Had a very shiny nose,

And if you ever saw it,

You would even say it glows.

All of the other reindeer

Used to laugh and call him names,

They never let poor Rudolph

Join in any reindeer games.

Then one foggy Christmas Eve,

Santa came to say:

“Rudolph with your nose so bright,

Won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?”

Then how the reindeer loved him

As they shouted out with glee:

“Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,

You’ll go down in history.”

Deck the Halls

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 Yule-tide carol,

Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la, la, la.

Let it Snow! Let it Snow! Let it Snow!

Oh, the weather outside is frightful,

But the fire is so delightful.

And since we’ve no place to go,

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

It doesn’t show signs of stoppin’

And I brought me some corn for poppin’

The lights are turned way down low,

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

When we finally kiss good-night,

How I’ll hate going out in the storm.

But if you really hold me tight,

All the way home I’ll be warm.

And the fire is slowly dying,

And, my dear, we’re still good-bye-ing.

But as long as you love me so,

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

We Wish You a Merry Christmas

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.

We wish you a merry Christmas

And a Happy New Year!

Hark! The Herald Angels Sing

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 the angelic host proclaim,

“Christ is born in Bethlehem!”

Hark! The herald angels sing,

“Glory to the newborn king!”

Hail the heaven-born Prince of Peace!

Hail the sun of righteousness!

Light and life to all he brings,

risen with healing in his wings.

Mild he lays his glory by,

born that we no more may die,

born to raise us from the earth,

born to give us second birth.

Hark! The herald angels sing,

“Glory to the newborn king!”

Joy to the World!

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.

He rules the world with truth and grace,

and makes the nations prove

the glories of his righteousness

and wonders of his love,

and wonders of his love,

and wonders, wonders of his love.
