O Come, O Come, Emmanuel

 

O come, O come, Emmanuel

And ransom captive Israel

That mourns in lonely exile here

Until the Son of God appear

 

O Come thou Dayspring, come and cheer

Our spirits by Thine advent here

Disperse the gloomy clouds of night

And death’s dark shadows put to flight

 

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel

Shall come to thee, O Israel

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel

Shall come to thee, O Israel

 

O come, desire of nations, bind

In one the hearts of all mankind

Bid Thou our sad divisions cease

And be Thyself our King of Peace

 

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel

Shall come to thee, O Israel

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel

Shall come to thee, O Israel

 


 

O Holy Night

 

O Holy night the stars are brightly shining

It is the night of our dear Savior’s birth

Long lay the world in sin and error pining
‘Til He appeared and the soul

Felt its worth

 

A thrill of hope

The weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks

A new and glorious morn

 

Fall on your knees
O hear the angel voices
O night divine
O night when Christ was born
O night divine
O night, O night divine

 

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

 

Fall on your knees
O hear the angel voices
O night divine
O night when Christ was born
O night divine
O night, O night divine

 

 

 

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

 

Shepherds, why this jubilee?

Why your joyous strains prolong?

What the gladsome tidings be

Which inspire your heavenly song?

 

Gloria

In excelsis Deo

Gloria

In excelsis Deo

 

Come to Bethlehem and see

Christ whose birth the angels sing

Come adore on bended knee

Christ the Lord, the newborn King

 

Gloria

In excelsis Deo

Gloria

In excelsis Deo

 

 

 

  

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

Sleep in heavenly peace

 

Silent night, holy night

Shepherds quake at the sight

Glory streams from heaven afar

Heavenly hosts sing alleluia

 

Christ the Savior is born

Christ the Savior is born

 

Silent night, holy night

Son of God, love’s pure light

Radiant beams from Thy holy face

with the dawn of redeeming grace

 

Jesus, Lord at Thy birth

Jesus, Lord at Thy birth

 

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

 

 

 

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

 

Joy to the earth, the Savior reigns

Let men their songs employ

 

While fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains

Repeat the sounding joy

Repeat the sounding joy

Repeat, repeat the sounding joy

 

No more let sins and sorrows grow

Nor thorns infest the ground

 

He comes to make His blessings flow

Far as the curse is found

Far as the curse is found

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

And wonders of His love

And wonders, wonders of His love
