ANGELS WE HAVE HEARD ON HIGH

Angels we have heard on high

Sweetly singing over the plains

And the mountains in reply

Echoing their joyous strains.


Ch: Gloria in excelsis Deo (2).
Shepherds, why this jubilee?

Why Your joyous strains prolong?


Say, what may the tidings be

Which inspire Your Heavenly


song?
Come to Bethlehem, come and see

Him whose birth the Angels sing


Come adore on bended knee,

Christ the Lord the new born


King.
GO TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN

Ch: Go tell it on the mountain


Over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain

That Jesus Christ is born.


While the shepherds kept

their watching

Over wandering flock by night


Behold from out of heaven

There shone a holy light.


And lo when they had seen it

They all bowed down and prayed


They traveled on together

To where the babe was laid.


When I was a seeker
I sought both night and day

I asked the Lord to help me

And He showed me the way.


He made me a watchman

Upon the city wall

And if I am a Christian

I am the least of all.


HARK THE HERALD

Hark the herald Angels sing

Glory to the new born king

Peace on earth and mercy mild


God and sinners reconciled

Joyful all ye nations raise


Join the triumph of the skies

With the angelic host proclaim

Christ is born in Bethlehem.


Hark the herald Angels sing

Glory to the new born king.


Christ by highest heaven adored

Christ the everlasting lord.

Late in time behold him come


Offspring of the virgins womb

Veiled in flesh the God head

see
Hail the incarnate deity

Pleased as man with men to

dwell

Jesus our Immanuel.


Hark the herald Angels sing

Glory to the new born king.


Hail the heaven born prince of

peace

Hail the son o righteousness

Light and life to all He brings


Risen with healing in His wings

Mild He lays His glory by


Born that man no more may die

Born to raise the sons of earth

Born to give them second birth


Hark the herald Angels sing

Glory to the new born king.


Come desire of nations come

Fix in us thy humble home

Rise the womans conquering

seed
Bruise in us the serpents head

Adams likeness efface


Stamp thine image in its place

Second Adam from above

Reinstate us in Thy love


Hark the herald Angels sing

Glory to the new born king.


JOY TO THE WORLD

Joy to the world the

Lord has come


Let earth receive her king

Let every heart prepare him room


And heaven and nature sing (2)

And heaven and heaven and


nature sing.
Joy to the world, the

Saviour reigns
Let men their songs employ

While fields and floods rocks


hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy(2)

Repeat repeat the sounding


joy.
No more let sin and

sorrow grow

Nor thorns infest the ground


He comes to make His blessings flow

Far as the curse is found (2)

Far as far as the curse is found.


He rules the world with

truth and grace

And makes the nations prove


The glories of His righteousness

And wonders of His love (2)

And wonders wonders of His love


MARYS BOY CHILD
Long time ago in Bethlehem

So the holy Bible says

Marys boy child Jesus Christ

Was born on Christmas Day.


Ch: Hark now hear, the angels sing

A new king born today

And man will live for evermore

Because of Christmas day.


Trumpets sound and Angels sing

Listen to what they say

That man will live for evermore

Because of Christmas day.


While shepherds watch their
flocks by night

They see a bright new

shinning star
They hear a choir of angels sing

The music seems to come from


afar.
Now Joseph and his wife Mary
Came to Bethlehem that Night

They find no place to bear a child

Not a single room is in sight.


By and by they find a little nook

In a stable all forlorn

And in a manger cold and dark

Marys little boy was born.


O LITTLE TOWN OF BETHLEHEM

O little town of Bethlehem how


still we se thee lie

Above the deep and dreamless


sleep the silent stars go by
Yet in the dark streets shineth
the everlasting light

The hopes and fears of all the


years are met in thee tonight
For Christ is born of Mary and
gathered all above
While mortals sleep the angels keep
their watch of wondering love
O morning stars together proclaim
the holy birth
And praises sing to God the king
and peace to man and earth.
How silently how silently thy
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.
O holy child of Bethlehem
descend on us we pray
Cast out our sin and enter in
be born in us today
We hear the Christmas angels the
great glad tidings tell

O come to us abide with us our


Lord Emmanuel.
O COME ALL YE FAITHFULL

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.


Ch: O come let us adore him(3)

Christ the Lord.


Sing choirs of Angels

Sing in exultation,
O Sing all ye citizens of heaven
above
Glory to God

All glory in the highest.


Yea Lord, we greet thee

Born this happy morning

Jesus to thee be all glory given


Word of the Father,

Now in flesh appearing.


SILENT 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 (2).


Silent night, holy night

Shepherds quake at the sight


Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly host sing Alleluia

Christ the Saviour is born (2).


Silent night, holy night

Son of God loves pure light

Radiant beams from thy holy face


With the dawn of redeeming grace

Jesus Lord at thy birth (2).


Silent night holy night

All is dark save the light


Yonder where thy sweet vigils
keep
Over the babe who in silence sleeps

Rests in heavenly peace (2).


THE FIRST NOEL
The first Noel, the angel did say

Was to certain poor shepherds,

in field as they lay


In fields were they lay, keeping

their sheep

On a cold winters night that

was so deep.
Ch: 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 a

great light

And so it continued both

day and night.


And by the light of that

same star
Three wise men came from
countries far
To seek for a king was

their intent

And to follow the star


wherever it went
This star drew nigh to the
northwest

Over Bethlehem it took its rest


And there it did, both stop

and stay

Right over the place were

Jesus Lay
CHRISTMAS ALPHABET
Cis for the Christ child, born

upon this day

H for herald angels in the night

R means our Redeemer


I means Israel

S is for the star that shone

so bright

T is for three wise men, They who

traveled far
M is for the manger where he lay

A is for all he stands for

S means shepherds came

And thats why theres a Christmas

day.
WE THREE KINGS OF ORIENT ARE

We three Kings of Orient are


Bearing gifts we traverse afar


Field and foundation, moor and
mountain

Following yonder star.


Ch: O star of wonder, star of night

Star with royal beauty bright


Westward leading, still proceeding

Guide us to thy perfect light.


Born a king on Bethlehems plain

Gold I bring to crown Him again


King forever, ceasing never

Over us all to reign.


Frankincense to offer have I
Incense, owns a deity nigh
Prayer and praising all

men raising

Worship Him, God on high.


Myrrh I bring its bitter
perfume

Breaths a life of gathering


gloom
Sorrowing sighing bleeding
dying

Sealed in a stone cold tomb.


JINGLE BELLS
Dashing thro the snow

In a one horse open sleigh

Over the fields we go

Laughing all the way


Bells on bobtails ring

Making spirits high

What fun it is to ride and sing

A sleighing song tonight.


Ch: Hey Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells

Jingle all the way


Oh what fun its to ride

In a one horse open sleigh !! (2)


A day or two ago

I thought Id take a ride

And soon Miss Fanny Bright

Was seated by my side;


The horse was lean and lank

Misfortune seemed his lot,

We got into a drifted bank

And we we got upsot.

WHAT CHILD IS THIS

What child is this who laid

to rest
On Marys lap is sleeping
Whom angels greet with anthems
sweet
While shepherds watch are
keeping.
Ch: This, this is Christ the King,

Whom shepherds guard and


angels sing
This, this is Christ the King

The Babe, the son of Mary.


Why lies He in such mean estate

Where Ox and ass are feeding


Good Christians fear, for sinners
here

The silent word is pleading.


So bring Him incense, gold

and Myrrh
Come peasant, king to own
Him
The King of Kings salvation
brings

Let loving hearts enthrone


Him
O HOLY NIGHT
O Holy night, the stars are brightly
shining
It is the night of the dear Saviors
birth
Long lay the world in sin

and error pining,

Till he appeared and the soul

felt its worth


A thrill of hope the weary

world rejoices,

For yonder breaks a new and


glorious morn.
Ch: Fall on your knees, O hear
the angel voices
O night divine, O night when
Christ was born
O night, O holy night, O night
divine.
Led by the light of faith
serenely beaming

With glowing hearts by His


cradle we stand
So led by light of a star so
sweetly gleaming

Here came the wise men from


out the orient land
The king of Kings lay thus in
lowly manger

In all our trails born to be

our friend.
He knows our need, our weakness
is no stranger
Behold your King, before Him
lowly bend,
Truly He taught us to love one
another

His law is love and His gospel


is peace
Chains shall He break for the
slave is our brother
And in his name all oppression
shall cease.
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful
chorus raise we

Let all within us praise His


holy name.
Christ is the Lord, then ever
ever praise we
His power and glory ever more
proclaim (2)
For Christ is born of Mary, and

gathered all above,

While mortals sleep, the angels keep

their watch of Wondering love


O morning stars, together, proclaim

the holy birth

And praises sing to God the king,

and peace to man on earth.


How silently, how silently, thy

wondrous gift is given

So God imparts to human hearts,

the blessing 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.


O Holy Child of Bethlehem,
descend on us we pray,

Cast out our sin and enter in, be


born in us today.
We hear the Christmas angels, the
great glad tidings tell.

O come to us, abide with us, Our


Lord Emmanuel.
AWAY IN A MANGER
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.
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 by my cradle till
morning is nigh.
Be near me Lord Jesus, I ask Thee
to stay,

Close be me forever and Love me I


pray,
Bless all the dear children in Thy
tender care

And take me to heaven to live with


thee there.

RUDOLPH
Rudolph the red nosed reindeer

Had a very shiny nose and if you

ever saw him

You would even say it glows


All of the other reindeers

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

Wont you guide my sleigh tonite


Then all the reindeers loved him

And they shouted out with glee

Rudolph the red nosed reindeer

Youll go down in history.

GREAT DAY IN BETHLEHEM

Ch: Great day in Bethlehem (3)

In a stable at the back of the inn.


The greatest story ever told

Was told on Christmas day

Of two who came to Bethlehem


They came a long long way

Weary tired dusty worn

They knocked at every inn


There was a baby to be born a new

life to begin

And its a great day.


Now after looking high and low

Around the crowded town

The only place where they

could rest
Where they could both lie down

Was in a barn with animals

With goats and cows and sheep


Thats where the two could

make their bed

Thats where the two could sleep

And its a great day.


3) So late that night their son was born

A son who was to be

The way for men to find the truth

A light for them to see

Angels cried Oh glory be Hosanna let us sing

True peace on earth goodwill to men

Today is born a king

And its a great day.

STATIONS OF THE CROSS
We hail thee, Saviour and God, thy Cross-ever be
adored (2)

If you wish to be my disciples, take up your


cross and
follow me.
1. At the cross Her station keeping

Stood the holy Mother weeping

Closed to Jesus to the last.


Through her heart his sorrow
sharing
All His bitter anguish bearing

Now at length the sword

had passed.
Oh how sad and sore distressed

Was that Mother highly blessed

Of the sole begotten one.


Christ above in torment hangs

She beneath behold the pangs

Of her dying glorious son.


Is there one who would not weep

Whelmed in miseries so deep

Christs dear mother to behold.


Can the human heart refrain

From partaking in her pain

In that mothers pain untold.


Bruised, derided, cursed, defiled

She behold her tender child

All with bloddy scourges rent.


For the sins of his own nation

Saw him hand in desolation

Till his spirit in forth he sent.


O thou mother, font of love

Touch my spirit from above

Make my heart with thine accord


Make my feel as thou has felt

Make my soul to glow and melt


With the love of Christ my Lord.
Holy Mother pierce me through,

In my heart each wound renew

Of my Saviour crucified.
Let me share with thee his pain

Who for all my sins was slain

Who for me in torment died.


Let me mingle tears with thee,

Moaning him who mourned


for me

All the day that I may live.


By the cross with the to stay

There with thee to week and pray,

Is all I ask of thee to give


Virgin of all Virgins best,

Listen to my fond request

Let me share they grief divine.


GOD OF MERCY
God of mercy and compassion

Look with pity upon me


Father let me call the Father

This thy child returns to thee.


Jesus Lord I ask for mercy

Let me not implore in vain


All my sins I mow detest them

Never will I sin again.


By my sins I have deserved

Death and endless misery

Hell with all its pain and torments

And for all eternity.


VENERATION OF THE CROSS
On a hill far away stood an old

rugged cross the emblem

of suffering and shame and I


love that old cross where the dearest

and best for a world of lost sinners

was slain.
Ch: So, Ill cherish the old rugged

cross till my trophies at last I lay

down.
I will cling to the old rugged

cross and exchange it some day

for a crown.
Oh, that old rugged cross, so

despired by the world, has a

wondrous attraction for me.


For the dear lamb of God left his

glory above, to bear it to dark

calvary.
In the old rugged cross, stained

with blood so divine, a wondrous

beauty I see,
for Tivas on that old cross Jesus

suffered and died to pardon and

sanctify me.
4. To the old rugged cross I will ever be
true, its shame and reproach gladly bear,
then Hell call me some day to my home far
away, where his glory forever Ill share
APOSTLES CREED
I believe in God the Father Almighty

Creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Chris, His only son,

Our Lord.
He was conceived by the power of

the Holy

Spirit and was born of the Virgin

Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate, was

Crucified, died and was buried

On the third day He rose again.

He ascended into heaven,


And is seated at the right hand

of the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy

Catholic Church,
The communion of saints; the

forgiveness of sins,

The resurrection of the body; and

life everlasting. Amen.


OUR FATHER
Our Father, who art in heaven;

Hallowed be thy Name;

Thy kingdom comes;


Thy will be done on earth as it is in

heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread


And forgive us our trespasses

And we forgive those who trespasses

against us,
And lead us not into temptation;

But deliver us from evil. Amen.


HAIL MARY
Hail Mary, full of grace, the lord is
with thee;

Blessed art thou among women.


And blessed is the fruit of thy womb,
Jesus.
Holy Mary, mother of God, pray for
us sinners,
Now and at the hour of our death.

Amen.
GLORY BE TO THE FATHER
Glory be to the Father, and to the

Son, and to the Holy Spirit.

As it was in the beginning, is now,


And ever shall be, world without

end. Amen.
