JOY TO THE WORLD

Joy to the world, the Lord has come!

Let earth receive her King;

Let every heart prepare Him room

And Heaven and nature sing,

and heaven and nature sing,

And heaven, and heaven 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.


The glories of His righteousness

And wonders of His love,

and wonders of His love,

And wonders, wonders of His love.



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,

O come, let us adore Him,

O come, let us adore Him,

Christ the Lord.


Sing, choirs of angels, sing in exultation;

O sing, all ye citizens of heaven above!

Glory to God, glory in the highest.

O come, let us adore Him,

O come, let us adore Him,

O come, let us adore Him,

Christ the Lord.


Yea, Lord, we greet Thee, born this happy morning;

Jesus, to Thee be all glory given;

Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing.

O come, let us adore Him,

O come, let us adore Him,

O come, let us adore Him,

O come, let us adore Him,

O come, let us adore Him,

Christ the Lord.



KING OF KINGS

In the darkness we were waiting

without hope without light

Till from Heaven You came running

there was mercy in Your eyes

To fulfill the law and prophets

to a virgin came the Word

From a throne of endless glory

to a cradle in the dirt


Praise the Father praise the Son

Praise the Spirit three in one

God of Glory majesty

Praise forever to the King of Kings


To reveal the kingdom coming and to reconcile the lost

To redeem the whole creation

You did not despise the cross

For even in Your suffering

You saw to the other side

Knowing this was our salvation

Jesus for our sake You died


Praise the Father praise the Son

Praise the Spirit three in one

God of Glory majesty

Praise forever to the King of Kings


And the morning that You rose all of heaven held its breath

Till that stone was moved for good for the Lamb had conquered death

And the dead rose from their tombs and the angels stood in awe

For the souls of all who’d come to the Father are restored


And the Church of Christ was born

then the Spirit lit the flame

Now this Gospel truth of old shall not kneel shall not faint

By His blood and in His Name in His freedom I am free

For the love of Jesus Christ who has resurrected me


Praise the Father, praise the Son

Praise the Spirit three in one

God of Glory majesty

Praise forever to the King of Kings

Praise forever to the King of Kings



O HOLY NIGHT

O holy night the stars are brightly shining

It is the night of our dear Savior’s birth

Long lay the world in sin and error pining

Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth

A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices

For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn

Fall on your knees

O hear the angels voices

O night divine

O night when Christ was born


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

Evermore proclaim

Christ is Lord

Glory evermore

Evermore proclaim


Fall on your knees

O hear the angels voices

O night divine

O night when Christ was born

O night divine

O night, O night divine



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 Hallelujah

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, holy night
