Mary's Boy Child

(Traditional )

Long time ago in Bethlehem, so the Holy Bible say,
Mary's boy child Jesus Christ, was born on Christmas Day.
While shepherds watch their flocks by night
They saw a bright new shining star
Then they head a choir sing, the music came from afar

Chorus:
Hark, now hear the angels sing, a new king born today
And we shall live for ever more, because of Christmas day.
Trumpets sound and angels sing, listen to what they say
That we shall live for ever more, because of Christmas Day

Now Joseph and his wife, Mary, they came to Bethlehem that night,
They found no place to born the child, not a single room in sight.
By and by they found a little nook in a stable so forlorn
And in a manger cold and dark, Mary's little boy was born.

Chorus:


God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

(Traditional)

God rest you merry, gentle one let nothing you dismay
Remember Christ our Savior Was born on Christmas Day
To save us all from Satan's power When we were gone astray
O tidings of comfort and joy, Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy.

From God our Creator, a blessed angel came;
And unto certain Shepherds brought tidings of the same:
How that in Bethlehem was born The Son of God by Name.
O tidings of comfort and joy comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

God rest you merry, gentle one Let nothing you dismay,
Remember Christ our Savior was born on Christmas Day
To save us all from Satan's power when we were gone astray.
O tidings of comfort and joy comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy


Oh Come All Ye Faithful

(Traditional)

 

Oh come, all ye faithful
Joyful and triumphant
Oh come ye, Oh come ye to Bethlehem
Come and behold Him
Born the King of Angels
Oh come let us adore Him
Oh come let us adore Him
Oh come let us adore Him
Christ the Lord

Yea, Lord, we greet Thee
Born this happy morning
Oh Jesus, to Thee be all glory given
Word of the Father
Now in flesh appearing
Oh come let us adore Him
Oh come let us adore Him
Oh come let us adore Him
Christ the Lord


Child Of Peace

All you presidents and premiers,
Kings and queens you know it's true
And you dictators and universal soldiers, generals too
Put away your guns and drums
You've heard it from your birth
For it's Christmas time throughout the whole wide earth

So ring those bells and sing those songs
Love is on it's way
For a child of peace was born for you this day

All you leaders of the left and right
And rulers of demand
And you revolutionary officers who're in command
The children have been watching
And the time is drawing nigh
The whole wide world is watching you reply

So ring those bells and sing those songs
Love is on it's way
For a child of peace was born for you this day

Silent night sweet holy night
The angels they did dance
All the universe cries out
For giving peace a chance

So ring those bells and sing those songs
Love is on it's way
For a child of peace was born for you this day



We wish you a Merry Christmas

We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Come they told me, pa rum pum pum pum
Our new born King to see, pa rum pum pum pum
Our finest gifts we bring, pa rum pum pum pum
To lay before our King, pa rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum
So to honor him, pa rum pum pum pum
When we come.

Oh Baby Jesus, pa rum pum pum pum
I am a poor boy too, pa rum pum pum pum
I have no gift to bring, pa rum pum pum pum
That's fit to give a King, pa rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum,
Shall I play for you, pa rum pum pum pum,
On my drum?

Mary nodded, pa rum pum pum pum
The ox and lamb kept time, pa rum pum pum pum
I played my drum for Him, pa rum pum pum pum
I played my best for Him, pa rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum, rum pum, pum pum,
Then He smiled at me, pa rum pum pum pum
Me and my drum.

Breath Of Heaven (Mary's Song)

I have traveled many moonless nights
Cold and weary with a babe inside
And I wonder what I've done
Holy Father you have come
Chosen me now to carry your son

I am waiting in a silent prayer
I am frightened by the load I bear
In a world cold as stone
Must I walk this path alone
Be with me now

Breath of heaven hold me together
Be forever near me breath of heaven
Breath of heaven lighten my darkness
Pour over me your holiness for you are holy
Breath of heaven

Do you wonder as you watch my face
If a wiser one should have had my place
But I offer all I am for the mercy of the your plan
Help me be strong
Help me be
Help me

Breath of heaven hold me together
Be forever near me breath of heaven
Breath of heaven lighten my darkness
Pour over me your holiness for you are holy
Breath of heaven


It's Christmas Eve

It's Christmas Eve
I love this time of year
The stockings are all hung (and) every tree's been trimmed with care
Here at home with you I can easily see
There is no place I'd rather be
On Christmas Eve

It's Christmas Eve with falling snow
Sweet caroling and mistletoe
Cookies on a plate
Little children all in bed
Trying hard to sleep while Santa dances in their head

On Christmas Eve
There's magic in the night
From the noises on the roof
To the twinkle of each light
With hope in every heart
And a quiet prayer for peace
It's the time when we all believe
It's Christmas Eve

It's Christmas Eve and the fire is warm
Memories are coming strong
Here at home with you
I can easily see
There is no place I'd rather be
On Christmas Eve


Silent Night

(Traditional)

 

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
Glory streams from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing alleluia
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace

 

Silent night holy night
Son of God love's pure light
Radiant beams from thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace


A Quiet Night In Bethlehem

(Barbara Bailey Hutchison)
© 1993 Christara Publishing (BMI)


A quiet night in Bethlehem many years ago
In a torn and tired land a baby king was born
The little babe in swaddling clothes who in a manger lay
Would teach us love and bring us hope born on Christmas Day

A quiet night in Bethlehem the little babe asleep
Angels hovered o'er his head while shepherds watch did keep
Oh Holy Night, oh wondrous star shining overhead
As he sleeps so peacefully in his manger bed

A quiet night in Bethlehem the story lives today
How this babe grew to a man and through him all were saved
Celebrate, oh celebrate, His love we hold within
The son of God the infant king born in Bethlehem
