The First Noel

The first Noel the angel did say

Was to certain poor shepherds

in fields as they lay;

In fields where they lay

tending 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

O Little Town Of Bethlehem

O 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.

For Christ is born of Mary,

and gathered all above,

While mortals sleep, the angels keep

their watch of wondering love.

The morning stars together,

proclaim the holy birth,

And praises sing to God the King,

and peace to men on earth!

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 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.

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 th’angelic host proclaim,

Christ is born in Bethlehem!

Hark! the herald angels sing,

Glory to the newborn 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 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.
