                         The Wassail Song


1. Here we come a-wassailing           4. We have a little purse
   Among the leaves so green,             Made of ratching leather skin;
   Here we come a-wand'ring               We want some of your small
   So fair to be seen.                    change
                                          To line it well within.
C: Love and joy come to you,
   And to you your wassail, too,            C:
   And God bless you, and send you
   A Happy New Year,                   5. Bring us out a table
   And God send you a Happy New           And spread it with a cloth;
   Year.                                  Bring us out a cheese,
                                          And of your Christmas loaf.
2. We are not daily beggers
   That beg from door to door,              C:
   But we are neighbors' children
   Whom you have seen before           6. God bless the master of this
                                          house,
   C:                                     Likewise the mistress too;
                                          And all the little children
3. Good master and good mistress,         That round the table go.
   As you sit beside the fire,
   Pray think of us poor children           C:
   Who wander in the mire.

   C:

                 Deck the Halls

1. Deck the halls with boughs of holly,
   Fa la la la la, la la la la.
   Tis the season to be jolly,
   Fa la la la la, la la la la.

2. Don we now our gay apparel,
   Fa la la, la la la, la la la.
   Troll the ancient Yule tide carol,
   Fa la la la la, la la la la.

3. See the blazing Yule before us,
   Fa la la la la, la la la la.
   Strike the harp and join the chorus.
   Fa la la la la, la la la la.

4. Follow me in merry measure,
   Fa la la la la, la la la la.
   While I tell of Yule tide treasure,
   Fa la la la la, la la la la.

5. Fast away the old year passes,
   Fa la la la la, la la la la.
   Hail the new, ye lads and lasses,
   Fa la la la la, la la la la.

6. Sing we joyous, all together,
   Fa la la la la, la la la la.
   Heedless of the wind and weather,
   Fa la la la la, la la la la.

                       God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

1. God rest ye merry, gentlemen               4. "Fear not then," said the Angel,
   Let nothing you dismay                        "Let nothing you affright,
   Remember, Christ, our Saviour                 This day is born a Saviour
   Was born on Christmas day                     Of a pure Virgin bright,
   To save us all from Satan's power             To free all those who trust in Him
   When we were gone astray                      From Satan's power and might."

   C: O tidings of comfort and joy,              C:
      Comfort and joy
      O tidings of comfort and joy          5. The shepherds at those tidings
                                               Rejoiced much in mind,
2. In Bethlehem, in Israel,                    And left their flocks a-feeding
   This blessed Babe was born                  In tempest, storm and wind:
   And laid within a manger                    And went to Bethlehem straightway
   Upon this blessed morn                      The Son of God to find.
   The which His Mother Mary
   Did nothing take in scorn                   C:

   C:                                       6. And when they came to Bethlehem
                                               Where our dear Saviour lay,
3. From God our Heavenly Father                They found Him in a manger,
   A blessed Angel came;                       Where oxen feed on hay;
   And unto certain Shepherds                  His Mother Mary kneeling down,
   Brought tidings of the same:                Unto the Lord did pray.
   How that in Bethlehem was born
   The Son of God by Name.                     C:

   C:                                       7. Now to the Lord sing praises,
                                               All you within this place,
                                               And with true love and brotherhood
                                               Each other now embrace;
                                               This holy tide of Christmas
                                               All other doth deface.

                                               C:

                Good King Wenceslas

1. Good King Wenceslas looked out on the feast of Stephen
   When the snow lay round about deep and crisp and even
   Brightly shone the moon that night though the frost was cruel
   When a poor man came in sight gath'ring winter fuel

2. "Hither, page, and stand by me if thou know'st it, telling
   Yonder peasant, who is he where and what his dwelling?"
   "Sire, he lives a good league hence underneath the mountain
   Right against the forest fence by Saint Agnes' fountain."

3. "Bring me flesh and bring me wine bring me pine logs hither
   Thou and I will see him dine when we bear him thither."
   Page and monarch forth they went forth they went together
   Through the rude wind's wild lament and the bitter weather

4. "Sire, the night is darker now and the wind blows stronger
   Fails my heart, I know not how, I can go no longer."
   "Mark my footsteps, my good page tread thou in them boldly
   Thou shalt find the winter's rage freeze thy blood less coldly."

5. In his master's steps he trod where the snow lay dinted
   Heat was in the very sod which the Saint had printed
   Therefore, Christian men, be sure wealth or rank possessing
   Ye who now will bless the poor shall yourselves find blessing.

                           The Holly and the Ivy


1. The holly and the ivy,                   4. The holly bears a prickle
   When they are both full grown               As sharp as any thorn;
   Of all the trees that are in the wood       And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
   The holly bears the crown                   On Christmas Day in the morn.

   C: O the rising of the sun                    C:
     And the running of the deer
     The playing of the merry organ         5. The holly bears a bark
     Sweet singing of the choir                As bitter as any gall;
                                               And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
2. The holly bears a blossom                   For to redeem us all.
   As white as lily flower
   And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ              C:
   To be our sweet Saviour
                                            6. The holly and the ivy
   C:                                          Now both are full well grown,
                                               Of all the trees that are in the wood,
3. The holly bears a berry                     The holly bears the crown.
   As red as any blood
   And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ              C:
   To do poor sinners good

                             I Saw Three Ships

1. I saw three ships come sailing in            6. And all the bells on earth shall ring,
   On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;             On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
   I saw three ships come sailing in               And all the bells on earth shall ring,

   And what was in those ships all three,          And all the Angels in Heaven shall sing,

   The Virgin Mary and Christ were there,          And all the souls on earth shall sing,
   On Christmas Day in the morning.                On Christmas Day in the morning.

4. Pray, wither sailed those ships all three,   9. Then let us all rejoice again,
   On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;             On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
   Pray, wither sailed those ships all three,      Then let us all rejoice again,
   On Christmas Day in the morning?                On Christmas Day in the morning.

5. They sailed into Bethlehem,
   On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
   O they sailed into Bethlehem,
   On Christmas Day in the morning.

 1. Joy to the world, the Lord is come!
    Let earth receive her King;
    Let every heart prepare Him room,

    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.

 4. 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.

         Christ, the Saviour is born

         Son of God, love's pure light

         Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth "

              The First Noel

   1. 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.

      C:      Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
              Born is the King of Israel!

   2. 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.
      C:

   3. And by the light of that same star
      Three Wise men came from country far
      To seek for a King was their intent
      And to follow the star wherever it went.
      C:

   4. This star drew nigh to the northwest
      O'er Bethlehem it took its rest
      And there it did both Pause and stay
      Right o'er the place where Jesus lay.
      C:

   5. Then entered in those Wise men three
      Full reverently upon their knee
      And offered there in His presence
      Their gold and myrrh and frankincense.
      C:

   6. Then let us all with one accord
      Sing praises to our heavenly Lord
      That hath made Heaven and earth of nought
      And with his blood mankind has bought.
      C:

     While Shepherds Watched

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

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

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

4.    "The heavenly Babe
      You there shall find
      To human view displayed
      And meanly wrapped
      In swathing bands
      And in a manger laid
      And in a manger laid."

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

Children, go where I send thee,
How shall I send thee?
I'm gonna send thee one by one
One for the little bitty - baby
born, born, born in Bethlehem.

Children, go where I send thee,
How shall I send thee?
I'm gonna send thee two by two
Two for Paul and - Silas
One for the little bitty - baby

Three for the Hebrew children...

Four for the four that stood at the door...

Five for the gospel preachers...

Six for the six that never got fixed...

Seven for the seven that never got to heaven...

Eight for the eight that stood at the gate...

Nine for the nine all dressed so fine...

Ten for the ten commandments...

Eleven for the eleven deriders...

Twelve for the twelve Apostles...

                               The Huron Carol

1. 'Twas in the moon of wintertime when all the birds had fled
   That mighty Gitchi Manitou sent angel choirs instead;
   Before their light the stars grew dim and wondering hunters heard the hymn,
   Jesus your King is born, Jesus is born, in excelsis gloria.

2. Within a lodge of broken bark the tender babe was found;
   A ragged robe of rabbit skin enwrapped his beauty round
   But as the hunter braves drew nigh the angel song rang loud and high
   Jesus your King is born, Jesus is born, in excelsis gloria.

3. The earliest moon of wintertime is not so round and fair
   As was the ring of glory on the helpless infant there.
   The chiefs from far before him knelt with gifts of fox and beaver pelt.
   Jesus your King is born, Jesus is born, in excelsis gloria.

4. Children of the forest free, O seed of Manitou
   The holy Child of earth and heaven is born today for you.
   Come kneel before the radiant boy who brings you beauty peace and joy.
   Jesus your King is born, Jesus is born, in excelsis gloria.

                 Brightest and Best

1.   Brightest and best of the sons of the morning,
     Dawn on our darkness and lend us Thine aid;
     Star of the East, the horizon adorning,
     Guide where our infant Redeemer is laid.

2.   Cold on His cradle the dewdrops are shining;
     Low lies His head with the beasts of the stall;
     Angels adore Him in slumber reclining,
     Maker and King of us all!

3.   Brightest and best of the sons of the morning,
     Dawn on our darkness and lend us Thine aid;
     Star of the East, the horizon adorning,
     Guide where our infant Redeemer is laid.

4.   Say, shall we yield Him, in costly devotion,
     Odours of Edom and offerings divine?
     Gems of the mountain and pearls of the ocean,
     Myrrh from the forest, or gold from the mine?

5.   Brightest and best of the sons of the morning,
     Dawn on our darkness and lend us Thine aid;
     Star of the East, the horizon adorning,
     Guide where our infant Redeemer is laid.

6.   Vainly we offer each ample oblation,
     Vainly with gifts would His favour secure;
     Richer by far is the heart’s adoration,
     Dearer to God are the prayers of the poor.

7.   Brightest and best of the sons of the morning,
     Dawn on our darkness and lend us Thine aid;
     Star of the East, the horizon adorning,
     Guide where our infant Redeemer is laid.

        D’où viens-tu, bergère

      1. D'où viens-tu, bergère
         D'où viens-tu ?
         D'où viens-tu, bergère
         D'où viens-tu ?
         Je viens de l'étable
         De m'y promener
         J'ai vu un miracle
         Ce soir arrivé.

      2. Qu'as-tu vu, bergère
         Qu'as-tu vu ?
         Qu'as-tu vu, bergère
         Qu'as-tu vu ?
         J'ai vu dans la crèche
         Un petit enfant
         Sur la paille fraîche
         Mis bien tendrement.

      3. Est-il beau, bergère
         Est-il beau ?
         Est-il beau, bergère
         Est-il beau ?
         Plus beau que la lune
         Aussi le soleil
         Jamais la nature
         N'a vu son pareil.

      4. Rien de plus, bergère
         Rien de plus ?
         Rien de plus, bergère
         Rien de plus ?
         Y a le boeuf et l'âne
         Qui sont par devant
         Avec leur haleine
         Réchauffent l'enfant.

      5. Allons-y, bergère, allons-y !
         Allons-y, bergère, allons-y !
         Portons-lui des langes
         Aussi des drapeaux
         Et pour sa couchette
         Un petit berceau.

             Petit papa Noël

    1. C'est la belle nuit de Noël
       La neige étend son manteau blanc
       Et les yeux levés vers le ciel
       À genoux, les petits enfants
       Avant de fermer les paupières
       Font une dernière prière.

       Petit papa Noël
       Quand tu descendras du ciel
       Avec des jouets par milliers
       N'oublie pas mon petit soulier.
       Mais avant de partir
       Il faudra bien te couvrir
       Dehors tu vas avoir si froid
       C'est un peu à cause de moi.

    2. Le marchand de sable est passé
       Les enfants vont faire dodo
       Et tu vas pouvoir commencer
       Avec ta hotte sur le dos
       Au son des cloches des églises
       Ta distribution de surprises.

       Refrain

    3. Il me tarde que le jour se lève
       Pour voir si tu m'as apporté
       Tous les beaux joujoux que je vois en rêve
       Et que je t'ai commandés.

       Refrain

    4. Et quand tu seras sur ton beau nuage
       Viens d'abord sur notre maison
       Je n'ai pas été tous les jours très sage
       Mais j'en demande pardon.

 1. Christmas is now drawing near at hand
    Come serve the Lord and be at His command
    And God a portion for you will provide
    And give a blessing to your soul beside

 2. Down in the garden where flowers grow in ranks
    Down on your bended knees and give the Lord thanks
    Down on your knees and pray both night and day
    Leave off your sins and live upright, I pray

 3. So proud and lofty is some sort of sin
    Which many take delight and pleasure in
    Whose conversation God doth not dislike
    And yet He shakes His sword before He strikes

 4. So proud and lofty do some people go
    Dressing themselves like players in the show
    They patch and paint and dress with idle stuff
    As if God had not made them fine enough

 5. Even little children learn to curse and swear
    And can't recite one word of Godly prayer
    Oh teach them better, oh teach them to rely
    On Christ the sinner's friend who reigns on high

                O Holy Night

1. Holy Night! The stars are brightly shining,
   It is the night of the dear Saviour's birth.
   Long lay the world in sin and error pining.
   Till He appeared and the Spirit felt its worth.
   A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
   For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
   Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices!
   O night divine, the night when Christ was born;
   O night, O Holy Night , O night divine!
   O night, O Holy Night , O night divine!

2. Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,
   With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand.
   O'er the world a star is sweetly gleaming,
   Now come the wisemen from out of the Orient land.
   The King of kings lay thus lowly manger;
   In all our trials born to be our friends.
   He knows our need, our weakness is no stranger,
   Behold your King! Before him lowly bend!
   Behold your King! Before him lowly bend!

3. Truly He taught us to love one another,
   His law is love and His gospel is peace.
   Chains he shall break, for the slave is our brother.
   And in his name all oppression shall cease.
   Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
   With all our hearts we praise His holy name.
   Christ is the Lord! Then ever, ever praise we,
   His power and glory ever more proclaim!
   His power and glory ever more proclaim!

              The Angel Gabriel from Heaven Came

        1.    The angel Gabriel from heaven came,
               his wings as drifted snow, his eyes as flame;
               "All hail," said he, "thou lowly maiden Mary,
               most highly favored lady," Gloria!

        2.    "For know a blessed Mother thou shalt be,
               all generations laud and honor thee,
               thy Son shall be Emmanuel, by seers foretold,
               most highly favored lady," Gloria!


        3.    Then gentle Mary meekly bowed her head,
               "To me be as it pleaseth God," she said,
               "my soul shall laud and magnify his holy Name."
               Most highly favored lady, Gloria!


        4.    Of her, Emmanuel, the Christ, was born
               in Bethlehem, all on a Christmas morn,
               and Christian folk throughout the world will ever say--
               "Most highly favored lady," Gloria!
