HARK! THE HERALD ANGELS SING

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, rise,
Join the triumph of the skies;
With th' 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 Virgin's womb.
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see;
Hail the incarnate Deity,
Pleased as man with man to dwell;
Jesus, our Emmanuel!
Hark! the herald angels sing
Glory to the new-born King!

Hail the heaven-born
Prince of Peace!
Hail the Son of 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 newborn King!

Come, Desire of nations come,
Fix in us Thy humble home;
Rise, the Woman's conquering Seed,
Bruise in us the Serpent's head.
Adam's likeness now 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!

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,
Glories stream from heaven afar,
Heavenly hosts sing alleluia;
Christ the Saviour, is born!
Christ the Saviour, 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.



LITTLE DONKEY

Little donkey, little donkey,
On the dusty road,
Got to keep on plodding onwards
With your precious load.
Been a long time, little donkey,
Through the winter's night.
Don't give up now, little donkey,
Bethlehem's in sight.


Ring out those bells tonight,
Bethlehem, Bethlehem,
Follow that star tonight,
Bethlehem, Bethlehem,
Little donkey, little donkey,
Had a heavy day.
Little donkey, carry Mary
Safely on her way.

Little donkey, carry Mary
Safely on her way.

THE LITTLE
DRUMMER BOY

Come, they told me,
pa-ra-pa pum pum
Our new-born King to see,
pa-ra-pa pum pum
Our finest gifts we bring,
pa-ra-pa pum pum
To lay before the King,
pa-ra-pa pum pum,
ra-pa pum pum,
ra-pa pum pum,
So to honor Him,
pa-ra-pa pum pum,
When we come.

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

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

Christmas carols

ANGELS, FROM THE
REALMS OF GLORY

Angels, from the realms of glory,
Wing your flight
o'er all the earth;
Ye, who sang creation's story,
Now proclaim Messiah's birth:
Come and worship,
Come and worship,
Worship Christ,
the new-born King.

Shepherds in the fields abiding,
Watching o'er
your flocks by night,
God with man
is now residing;
Yonder shines
the infant Light:
Come and worship,
Come and worship,
Worship Christ,
the new-born King.

Sages, leave your contemplations,
Brighter visions beam afar:
Seek the great
Desire of nations;
Ye have seen his natal star:
Come and worship,
Come and worship,
Worship Christ,
the new-born King.

Saints before the altar bending,
Watching long in hope and fear,
Suddenly the Lord, descending,
In his temple shall appear:
Come and worship,
Come and worship,
Worship Christ,
the new-born King.
