SONGS TO BE PERFORMED:

Carol of the Bells

Hark how the bells, sweet silver bells,
All seem to say, throw cares away
Christmas is here, bringing good cheer,
To young and old, meek and the bold.
Ding dong ding dong that is their song
With joyful ring all caroling.
One seems to hear words of good cheer
From everywhere filling the air.
Oh how they pound, raising the sound,
O'er hill and dale, telling their tale.
Gaily they ring while people sing
Songs of good cheer, Christmas is here.
Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas,
Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas.
On, on they send, on without end,
Their joyful tone to every home.
Ding dong ding dong
Ding dong ding dong

Mary Did You Know?

Mary did you know that your baby boy will one day walk on water?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will save our sons and daughters?
Did you know that your baby boy has come to make you new?
This child that you've delivered, will soon deliver you
Mary did you know that your baby boy will give sight to a blind man?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will calm a storm with his hand?
Did you know that your baby boy has walked where angels trod?
And when you kiss your little baby, you have kissed the face of God.
Mary did you know, Mary did you know, Mary did you know.
The blind will see, the deaf will hear and the dead will live again
The lame will leap, the dumb will speak, the praises of the lamb
Mary did you know that your baby boy is Lord of all creation?
Mary did you know that your baby boy will one day rule the nations?
Did you know that your baby boy is heaven's perfect Lamb?
This sleeping child you're holding is the great I am
Mary did you know, Mary did you know, Mary did you know?
Night of Silent

Cold are the people, winter of life

We tremble in shadows this cold endless night
Frozen in the snow lie roses sleeping
Flowers that will echo the sunrise
Fire of hope is our only warmth
Weary its flame will be dying soon.

Voice in the distance, call in the night
On wind you enfold us you speak of the light
Gentle on the ear you whisper softly
Rumors of a dawn so embracing
Breathless love awaits darkened souls
Soon will we know of the morning.

Spirit among us shine like the star
Your light that guides shepherds and kings from afar
Shimmer in the sky so empty, lonely,
Rising in the warmth of your Son’s love
Star unknowing of night and day
Spirit we wait for your loving Son.

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.

Christmas Toys on Parade

Trumpets herald a special day when they begin to play their blazing song. Snare drums steadily keep the beat coaxing their eager feet to march along the way. Colors of every shade and hue pass in full review before the eyes.
Toyland suddenly springs to life. Toys of Every size now mobilize. Whenever the music starts to play they fall in line they move in time
Whenever the music comes their way they hear the sound they march around in bright array.

Whenever the music starts to play they fall in line they move in time
Whenever the music comes their way Christmas Toys are now on parade. On their way to Toyland, Toyland wonder inspiring Joyland
While you dwell within it you’re as happy as can be.
Toyland, Toyland mystical merry Joyland once you’ve crossed its board you may never want to leave. The Toyland town is locked up tight and everything is quiet for the night when suddenly the clock strikes twelve, and the fun begins!
Hear them all cheering, Now they are nearing, toys as far as you can see. Horses are prancing soldiers advancing adding to the pageantry.
Coronets flashing royalty passing Toyland Town is all array.
Oh the sights that you will see when Christmas Toys are on parade
When Christmas toys are on parade.

Here We Come A-Caroling

Here we come a-caroling among the leaves so green;
Here we come a-wand’ring, so fair to be seen.

Refrain:
Love and joy come to you, and to you your Christmas too;
And God bless you and send you a happy New Year,
And God send you a happy New Year.

We are not daily beggars that beg from door to door;
But we are neighbors’ children, whom you have seen before. Refrain

God bless the master of this house, likewise the mistress, too,
And all the little children, that round the table go. Refrain

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!

Come, to Bethlehem, and see Him whose birth the angels sing;
Come, adore on bended knee, Christ the Lord, the new-born King.
Gloria in excelsis Deo, Gloria in excelsis Deo!

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 keeping their sheep
On a cold winter’s night that was so deep.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel, Born is the King of Israel.

They lookéd 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.

Jolly Old St. Nicholas

Jolly old Saint Nicholas, lean your ear this way!
Don’t you tell a single soul what I’m going to say;
Christmas Eve is coming soon; now, you dear old man,
Whisper what you’ll bring to me; tell me if you can.

When the clock is striking twelve, when I’m fast asleep,
Down the chimney broad and black, with your pack you’ll creep;
All the stockings you will find hanging in a row;
Mind will be the shortest one, you’ll be sure to know.

Johnny wants a pair of skates; Susy wants a sled;
Nellie wants a picture book; yellow, blue and red;
Now I think I’ll leave to you what to give the rest;
Choose for me, dear Santa Claus, you will know the best.

Joy to the World

Joy to the world! the Lord has 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 world! 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.

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.

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, Heav’nly hosts sing, Alleluia,
Christ, the Savior is born! Christ, the Savior is born!

Jingle Bells

Dashing through the snow In a one-horse open sleigh,
O’er the fields we go, Laughing all the way;
Bells on bobtail ring, Making spirits bright;
What fun it is to ride and sing A sleighing song tonight! Oh!

Refrain:
Jingle bells! Jingle bells! Jingle all the way!
Oh, what fun it is to ride In a one-horse open sleigh!
Jingle bells! Jingle bells! Jingle all the way!
Oh, what fun it is to ride In a one-horse open sleigh!

Day or two ago I thought I’d take a ride,
And soon Miss Fannie Bright Was seated by my side.
The horse was lean and lank, Misfortune seemed his lot,
He got into a drifted bank, And we, we got upsot. Oh! Refrain

We Wish You a Merry Christmas

We wish you a Merry Christmas, We wish you a Merry Christmas,
We wish you a Merry Christmas, And a happy New Year!

Good tidings to you wherever you are;
Good tidings for Christmas and a happy New Year!

We wish you a Merry Christmas, We wish you a Merry Christmas,
We wish you a Merry Christmas, And a happy New Year!
