A Child This Day Is Born
A child this day is born 
A child of high renown 
Most worthy of a sceptre and a crown 

Glad tidings to all men 
Glad tidings sing we may 
Because the king of kings 
Was born on Christmas day 

These tidings shepherds heard 
Whilst watching o'er their fold; 
'Twas by an Angel unto them 
That night revealed and told. 

Glad tidings to all men 
Glad tidings sing we may 
Because the king of kings 
Was born on Christmas day 

Then was there with the Angel 
An host incontinent 
Of heavenly bright soldiers, 
All from the highest sent. 

Glad tidings to all men 
Glad tidings sing we may 
Because the king of kings 
Was born on Christmas day 

They praised the Lord our God, 
And our celestial King; 
All glory be in Paradise, 
This heavenly host do sing. 

Glad tidings to all men 
Glad tidings sing we may 
Because the king of kings 
Was born on Christmas day 

All glory be to God, 
That sitteth still on high, 
With praises and with triumph great, 
Andjoyful melody. 

Glad tidings to all men 
Glad tidings sing we may 
Because the king of kings 
Was born on Christmas day


Christmas Day - Michael W. Smith
Snow covered rooftop, lights on the trees. 
The sound of singing I hear down every street. 
Families have gather from miles away 
Oh Merry Christmas. 
It's Christmas day. 

You see that old tree down cotton lane. 
Those lights keep shining it's always the same (it's always the same.) 
We hear the church bells ring out to say 
Oh Merry Christmas. 
It's Christmas day. 
Oh Merry Christmas, 
It's Christmas day. 

See the lights and hang the stockings. 
Decorate with green and red. 
Made the cookies for old santa, 
Made a runway for his sled. 
Singing carols on a sleigh ride. 
Gather 'round the manger scene. 
Open presents and read the letters. 
And together we will sing 

A Merry Christmas 
Joy to the world (Joy to the world) 
For every nation, 
for every boy and girl. 
Let's light a candle, 
for peace we pray 
oh merry christmas 
It's christmas day. (It's christmas day.) 
It's christmas day. (Oooooh.) 

Let's light a candle, 
for peace we pray 
Oh Merry Christmas 
It's Christmas Day, 
Oh Merry Christmas, 
It's Christmas Day 
oooooh (hooooo)


Christmas Day - Dido

By: Dido
And the last words I heard him say

Were I shall return,
For you,
My love,
On Christmas Day

And the night will come,
But I won't sleep,
As I watch the stars that lead him,
I cannot place where he is,
But still my heart goes with him,
I'm saving all my Sunday clothes
For the day that I'll be leaving,
Father knows,
My sister knows,
And my friends,
They're happy for me,
And the priest he says,
You should thank God,
For the blessing,
Of such beauty

And the last words
I heard him say,

Were I shall return,
For you,
My love,
On Christmas Day
I shall return,
For you,
My love,
On Christmas Day

(On Christmas Day)

(I shall return for you my love)

And the last words I heard him say
Were the last words I ever
Heard him say

I shall return,
For you, My love
On Christmas Day

I swear, I will return,
On Christmas Day,

And yes, I shall return,
On Christmas Day,

I shall return, For you,
On Christmas Day

My love, I will return,
On Christmas Day

I shall return, My love
On Christmas Day

On Christmas Day

Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire 
Jack Frost nipping at your nose 
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir 
And folks dressed up like Eskimos 

Ev'rybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe 
Help to make the season bright 
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow 
Will find it hard to sleep tonight 

They know that Santa's on his way 
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh 
And ev'ry mother's child is gonna spy 
To see if reindeer really know how to fly 

And so I'm offering this simple phrase 
To kids from one to ninety-two 
Although it's been said many times, many ways, 
"Merry Christmas to you."

Breath Of Heaven (Mary's Song)
By: Amy Grant, Chris Eaton
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 as cold as stone 
Must I walk this path alone 
Be with me now 
Be with me now 

Chorus: 
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 your holy Breath of Heaven 

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

[chorus] 
[chorus]

Blue Christmas
As sung by Elvis Presley
I'll have a blue Christmas without you
I'll be so blue thinking about you
Decorations of red
On a green Christmas tree
Won't be the same
If you're not here with me

And when those blue snow flakes start falling
And when those blue memories start falling
You'll be doing all right with your Christmas of white
But I'll have a blue, blue, blue, blue Christmas

Ooh
Ooh
Ooh
Ooh

Decorations of red
On a green Christmas tree
Oh, won't be the same
If you're not here with me

I'll have a blue Christmas, that's certain
And when that blue heartache starts hurting
You'll be doing all right
With your Christmas of white
But I'll have a blue, blue Christmas

Mmmm



Believe
From The Polar Express movie
Children, sleeping.
Snow is softly falling.
Dreams are calling,
Like bells in the distance.
We were dreamers,
Not so long ago.
But one by one, we
All had to grow up.

When it seems the magic slipped away...
We find it all again on Christmas Day.

Believe in what your heart is saying,
Hear the melody that's playing.
There's no time to waste,
There so much to celebrate.
Believe in what you feel inside,
Give your dreams the wings to fly.
You have everything you need, if you just believe.

Trains move quickly
To their journey's end.
Destinations...
Are where we begin again.
Ships go sailing,
Far across the sea.
Trusting starlight,
To get where they need to be.

When it seems that we have lost our way...
We find ourselves again on Christmas Day.

Believe in what your heart is saying,
Hear the melody that's playing
There's no time to waste,
There so much to celebrate.
Believe in what you feel inside,
And give your dreams the wings to fly.
You have everything you need, if you just Believe.

If you just believe.
If you just believe.
If you just believe...just believe...just believe.

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 sky looked down where he lay, 
The little Lord Jesus asleep in 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 til 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 take us to heaven, to live with Thee there.

Auld Lang Syne
Should auld acquaintance be forgot 
and never brought to mind? 

Should auld acquaintance be forgot 
and days of Auld Lang Syne. 

For Auld Lang Syne, my dear, 
for Auld Lang Syne, 
we'll take a cup of kindness yet 
for Auld Lang Syne. 

(Repeat entire verse)

Angels We Have Heard On High
As sung by David Archuleta
Angels we have heard on high,
Sweetly singing o'er the plains
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strains. Gloria...

Chorus:
Gloria, In Excelsius Deo

Shepherd why this jubilee,
Why your joyous strains prolong
What the gladsome tidings be,
Which inspire your heavenly song?

Come to Bethlehem and see,
Him whose birth the angels sing
Come adore on bended knee,
Christ the Lord the newborn king.

See him in a manger laid,
Whom the choirs of angels praise
Mary, Joseph, lend your aid,
While our hearts in love we raise.


Angels From The Realms Of Glory
Angels from the realms of glory, 
Wing your flight o'er all the earth 
Ye who sang creations story, 
Now proclaim messiah's birth 

Come and worship, come and worship, 
Worship Christ the new-born king 

Shepherds in the field abiding, 
Watching oe'r your flocks by night 
God with man is now residing, 
Yonder shines the infant light. 

Sages leave your contemplations, 
Brighter visions beam afar. 
Seek the great desire of nations, 
Ye have seen his natal star. 

Saints before the altar bending, 
Watching long in hope and fear 
Suddenly the Lord descending 
In his temple shall appear.

All I Want For Christmas Is You
I don't want a lot for Christmas 
There's just one thing I need 
I don't care about the presents 
Underneath the Christmas tree 
I just want you for my own 
More than you could ever know 
Make my wish come true 
All I want for Christmas is... 
You 

I don't want a lot for Christmas 
There's just one thing I need 
I don't care about the presents 
Underneath the Christmas tree 
I don't need to hang my stocking 
There upon the fireplace 
Santa Claus won't make me happy 
With a toy on Christmas day 
I just want you for my own 
More than you could ever know 
Make my wish come true 
All I want for Christmas is you 
You baby 

I won't ask for much this Christmas 
I don't even wish for snow 
I'm just gonna keep on waiting 
Underneath the mistletoe 
I won't make a list and send it 
To the North Pole for Saint Nick 
I won't even stay awake to 
Hear those magic reindeers click 
'Cause I just want you here tonight 
Holding on to me so tight 
What more can I do 
Baby all I want for Christmas is you 
Ooh baby 
All the lights are shining 
So brightly everywhere 
And the sound of children's 
Laughter fills the air 
And everyone is singing 
I hear those sleigh bells ringing 
Santa won't you bring me the one I really need 
Won't you please bring my baby to me... 

Oh I don't want a lot for Christmas 
This is all I'm asking for 
I just want to see my baby 
Standing right outside my door 
Oh I just want you for my own 
More than you could ever know 
Make my wish come true 
Baby all I want for Christmas is... 
You 

All I want for Christmas is you... baby (repeat and fade)

All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth
Every body stops
and stares at me
These two teeth are
gone as you can see
I don't know just who
to blame for this catastrophe!
But my one wish on Christmas Eve
is as plain as it can be!

All I want for Christmas
is my two front teeth,
my two front teeth,
see my two front teeth!

Gee, if I could only
have my two front teeth,
then I could be with you
"Merry Christmas."
It seems so long since I could say,
"Sister Susie sitting on a thistle!"

Gosh oh gee, how happy I'd be,
if I could only whistle (thhhh)

All I want for Christmas
is my two front teeth,
my two front teeth,
see my two front teeth.
Gee, if I could only
have my two front teeth,
then I could wish you
"Merry Christmas!"

Patris aeterni 
Verbum caro factus

A Christmas To Remember
By: Amy Grant
Twinkling lights 
A chill is in the air 
And carols everywhere 
Close your eyes, it's almost here 
Candles and cards 
And favorite movie scenes 
The smell of evergreen 
As special as it's always been 
And I have a dream or two 
And maybe they will come true 

Setting our hopes on a big snow tonight 
We'll wake up to a world of white 
It's gonna be a Christmas to remember 
Light up the fire, play some Nat King Cole 
Always sentimental and don't you know that 
It's gonna be a Christmas to remember 

I know it's true 
Time doesn't stand still 
Many things can change 
But we know some things never will 
The memories we share 
The songs we always sing 
The mystery of life 
The hopefulness this season brings 
And I have a dream or two 
And maybe they will come true 

Setting our hopes on a big snow tonight 
We'll wake up to a world of white 
It's gonna be a Christmas to remember 
Light up the fire, play some Nat King Cole 
Always sentimental and don't you know that 
It's gonna be a Christmas to remember
