Christmas Carol Lyrics

Away in a manger, no crib for His bed,

The little Lord Jesus lay 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 by me forever and love me I pray!

Bless all the dear children in Thy tender care,

And fit us for Heaven to live with Thee there.

 

Away in a Manger

 

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!

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

 

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 angelic host proclaim
Christ is born in Bethlehem

Hark! The herald angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King"

Christ, by highest heaven adored
Christ, the everlasting Lord
Late in time behold Him come,
Offspring of a virgin’s womb
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see
Hail the incarnate deity
Pleased as man with men to dwell
Jesus, our Emmanuel

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 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"

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, (3×)
Christ the Lord.

God of God, light of light,
Lo, he abhors not the Virgin's womb;
Very God, begotten, not created:
O come, let us adore Him, (3×)
Christ the Lord.

Sing, choirs of angels, sing in exultation,
Sing, all ye citizens of Heaven above!
Glory to God, glory in the highest:
O come, let us adore Him, (3×)
Christ the Lord.

Yea, Lord, we greet thee, born this
happy morning;
Jesus, to thee be glory given!
Word of the Father, now in flesh
appearing!
O come, let us adore Him, (3×)
Christ the Lord.

 

While Shepherds Watched

 

While shepherds watched their flocks by night
All seated on the ground
The angel of the Lord came down
And glory shone around

"Fear not" said he, for mighty dread
Had seized their troubled minds
"Glad tidings of great joy I bring
To you and all mankind"

"To you, in Bethlehem this day
Is born of David's line
The Savior who is Christ the Lord
And this shall be the sign"


"The heavenly Babe you there shall find
To human view displayed
All meanly wrapped in swathing bands
And in a manger laid"

Thus spake the seraph, and forthwith
Appeared a shining throng
Of angels praising God, who thus
Addressed their joyful song

"All glory be to God on high
And to the earth be peace

To those on whom His favour rests,
good-will shall never cease."

 

O Little Town of Bethlehem

Oh little town of Bethlehem,

how still we see thee lie
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
the silent stars go by
Yet in thy dark streets shineth,

the everlasting light
The hopes and fears of all the years are
met in thee tonight.

How silently, how silently

The 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 to 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

Oh, come to us, abide with us

Our Lord Immanuel!

Angels from the Realms 

 

Angels from the realms of glory
Wing your flight through all the earth
Ye who sang creation's story
Now proclaim Messiah's birth
Gloria
In excelsis deo
Gloria
In excelsis deo

Shepherds, in the fields abiding
Watching o'er your flocks by night
God with man is now residing
Yonder shines the infant light
Gloria
In excelsis deo
Gloria
In excelsis deo


Sages, leave your contemplation
Brighter visions beam afar
Seek the great desire of nations
Ye have seen His natal star
Gloria
In excelsis deo
Gloria
In excelsis deo

 

Joy to the World

Joy to the world, the Lord is come!
Let earth receive her King;
let ev’ry heart prepare him room
and heav’n and nature sing,
and heav’n and nature sing,
and heav’n, and heav’n 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.

O Holy Night

O Holy Night!
The stars are brightly shining
It is the night of the dear Savior's birth!
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Till he appear'd and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope the weary soul rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn!

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

Christ is the Lord;

O praise His name forever!
His power and glory evermore proclaim
His power and glory evermore proclaim

 
 

O Come O Come Emmanuel

O come, O come, Immanuel,

and ransom captive Israel

That mourns in lonely exile here

until the Son of God appear.

Refrain:

Rejoice! Rejoice! Immanuel

shall come to you, O Israel.

 

O come, O Wisdom from on high,

who ordered all things mightily;

to us the path of knowledge show

and teach us in its ways to go. 

Refrain

 

O come, O Bright and Morning Star,

and bring us comfort from afar!

Dispel the shadows of the night

and turn our darkness into light. 

Refrain

 

O come, O King of nations, bind

in one the hearts of all mankind.

Bid all our sad divisions cease

and be yourself our King of Peace.

Refrain

 

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

God rest ye merry gentlemen

Let nothing you dismay

Remember Christ our Savior

Was born on Christmas Day

To save us all from Satan's pow'r

When we were gone astray

Oh tidings of comfort and joy

Comfort and joy

Oh tidings of comfort and joy

 

In Bethlehem, in Israel

This blessed Babe was born

And laid within a manger

Upon this blessed morn

The which His Mother Mary

Did nothing take in scorn

Oh tidings of comfort and joy

Comfort and joy

Oh tidings of comfort and joy

 

Fear not then, said the Angel

Let nothing you affright

This day is born a Savior

Of a pure Virgin bright

To free all those who trust in Him

From Satan's pow'r and might

Oh tidings of comfort and joy

Comfort and joy

Oh tidings of comfort and joy

 

God rest ye merry gentlemen

Let nothing you dismay

Remember Christ our Savior

Was born on Christmas Day

To save us all from Satan's pow'r

When we were gone astray

Oh tidings of comfort and joy

Comfort and joy

Oh tidings of comfort and joy

 

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.

 

Why lies He in such mean estate,

Where ox and ass are feeding?

Good Christians, fear, for sinners here

The silent Word is pleading.

Nails, spear shall pierce Him through,

The cross be borne for me, for you.

Hail, hail the Word made flesh,

The Babe, the Son of Mary.

 

So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh,

Come peasant, king to own Him;

The King of kings salvation brings,

Let loving hearts enthrone Him.

Raise, raise a song on high,

The virgin sings her lullaby.

Joy, joy for Christ is born,

The Babe, the Son of Mary.

 

Mary's Boy Child

Long time ago in Bethlehem

So the Holy Bible say

Mary’s boy child, Jesus Christ

Was born on Christmas day

Hark, now hear the angels sing

A new King born today

And man will live forever more

Because of Christmas day

 

While shepherds watched their flock by

night

And see a bright new shining star

And hear a choir sing a song

The music seem to come from afar

Hark, now hear the angels sing

A new King born today

And man will live forever more

Because of Christmas day

 

Now Joseph and his wife Mary

Come to Bethlehem that night

And find no place to borne she child

Not a single room was in sight

Hark, now hear the angels sing

A new King born today

And man will live forever more

Because of Christmas day

 

By and by they find a little nook

In a stable all forlorn

And in a manger cold and dark

Mary’s little boy was born

Hark, now hear the angels sing

A new King born today

And man will live forever more

Because of Christmas day

 

The First Noel

The First Noel, the Angels did say

Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay

In fields where they lay a-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!

 

Then let us all with one accord

Sing praises to our Heavenly Lord

Who hath made Heaven and Earth of

nought

and with his blood mankind has bought

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel

Born is the King of Israel!
