  2. Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

    Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

    Have yourself a merry little Christmas, let your heart be light.
    From now on, our troubles will be out of sight.
    Have yourself a merry little Christmas, make the Yuletide gay.
    From now on, your troubles will be miles away.

    Here we are as in olden days, happy golden days of yore.
    Faithful friends who are dear to us gather near to us once more.

    Through the years we all will be together if the Fates allow.
    Hang a shining star upon the highest bough.
    And have yourself a merry little Christmas now.

    (written by Martin-Blane)

  3. The Peace Carol

    The Peace Carol

    The garment of life, be it tattered and torn,
    the cloak of the soldier is withered and worn.
    But what child is this that was poverty-born, the peace of Christmas Day.

    The branch that bears the bright holly, the dove that rests in yonder tree.
    The light that shines for all to see, the peace of Christmas Day.

    The hope that has slumbered for 2000 years,
    the promise that silenced 1000 fears.
    A faith that can hobble an ocean of tears, the peace of Christmas Day.

    The branch that bears the bright holly, the dove that rests in yonder tree.
    The light that shines for all to see, the peace of Christmas Day.

    Add all the grief that people may bear, total the strife, the troubles and care.
    Put them in columns and leave them right there, the peace of Christmas Day.

    The branch that bears the bright holly, the dove that rests in yonder tree.
    The light that shines for all to see, the peace of Christmas Day.
    The branch that bears the bright holly, the dove that rests in yonder tree.
    The light that shines for all to see, the peace of Christmas Day.

    Scooter? Yes Ma’am. Gonzo? Check. Robin? Yes, Miss Piggy.
    This is what we are going to sing.  Ahem,
    Christmas is coming, the geese is getting fast (nice),
    please to put a penny in the old man’s hat.
    If you haven’t got a penny, a ha-penny will do,
    if you haven’t got a ha-penny than God bless you (good).

    Now Scooter, you come in after my first line, and you two boys follow.
    Christmas is coming, the geese is getting fast,
    please to put a penny in the old man’s hat.
    If you haven’t got a penny, a ha-penny will do,
    if you haven’t got a ha-penny than God bless you.

    Christmas is coming, the geese is getting fast,
    please to put a penny in the old man’s hat.
    If you haven’t got a penny, a ha-penny will do,
    if you haven’t got a ha-penny than God bless you.
    If you haven’t got a ha-penny…uh Miss Piggy? We’re finished.

  5. A Baby Just Like You

    A Baby Just Like You


    The season is upon us now, a time for gifts and giving.
    And as the year draws to its close, I think about my living.
    Christmas time when I was young, the magic and the wonder.
    But colors dull and candles dim and dark my standing under.

    Oh, little angel, shining light, you’ve set my soul to dreaming.
    You’ve given back my joy in life, you filled me with new meaning.

    A savior King was born that day, a baby just like you.
    And as the Magi came with gifts, I come with my gift too.
    That peace on earth fills up your time and brotherhood surrounds you,
    That you may know the warmth of love and wrap it all around you.

    It’s just a wish, a dream I’m told from days when I was young,
    Merry Christmas little Zachary, Merry Christmas everyone.
    Merry Christmas little Zachary, Merry Christmas everyone.

    (written by John Denver)

  6. Deck The halls

    Deck The halls

    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.
    Don we now our gay apparel, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.
    Troll the ancient Yuletide carol, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.

    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.
    Follow me in merry measure, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.
    While I tell of Yuletide treasure, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.

    Fast away the old year passes, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.
    Hail the new year, lads and lasses, fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.
    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.
    Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la.

  7. When The River Meets The Sea

    When The River Meets The Sea

    When the mountain touches the valley, all the clouds are taught to fly
    as our souls will leave this land most peacefully.
    Though our minds be filled with questions, in our hearts we’ll understand
    when the river meets the sea.

    Like a flower that has blossomed in the dry and barren sand,
    We are born and born again most gracefully.
    Thus the winds of time will take us with a sure and steady hand
    when the river meets the sea.

    Patience, my brother and patience, my son, in that sweet and final hour
    truth and justice will be done.

    Like a baby when it is sleeping in its loving mother’s arms,
    what a newborn baby dreams is a mystery.
    But his life will find a purpose and in time he’ll understand
    when the river meets the sea. When the river meets the almighty sea.

    Little Saint Nick

    Oo, merry Christmas, Santa only comes this time each year, oooo.
    Well, way up north where the air gets cold,
    there’s a tale about Christmas that you’ve all been told.
    And a real famous cat all dressed up in red,
    and he spends the whole year working out on his sled,
    it’s a little Saint Nick, it’s a little Saint Nick.

    Just a little bobsled, calls it old Saint Nick,
    But he sparks the buggy with a full speed stick.
    He’s candy apple red with a ski for a wheel,
    Then he gives gas and just watch him peel, yeah,
    it’s a little Saint Nick, it’s a little Saint Nick.

    Run run reindeer, run run reindeer, run run reindeer,
    run run reindeer, run run run, yeah!

    He’s rolling through the snow at a frightful speed
    with a half dozen deer with Rudy to lead.
    He’s gotta wear his goggle cause the snow really flies,
    and he’s cruising every path with a little surprise,
    it’s a little Saint Nick, it’s a little Saint Nick.

    Oo, merry Christmas, Santa only comes this time each year,
    (run run run run reindeer!)
    Oo, merry Christmas, Santa only comes this time each year,
    (run run run run reindeer!)
    Oo, merry Christmas, Santa only comes this time each year,
    (run run run run reindeer!) all right, that’s nice.  Sorry.

  2. Noel: Christmas Eve 1913

    Noel: Christmas Eve 1913

    A frosty Christmas Eve, when the stars where shining,
    I traveled for the home, where westward falls the hill.
    And for many, many a village, in the darkness of the valley,
    distant music reached me, peels of bells were ringing.

    Then spread my thoughts to olden times, to that first of Christmases
    when shepherds who were watching, heard music in the fields.
    And they sat there and they marveled, and they knew they could not tell
    whether it were angels, or the bright stars a singing.

    But to me heard a far, it was starry music,
    the singing of the angels, the comfort of our Lord.
    Words of old that come a traveling, by the riches of the times,
    and I softly listened, as I stood upon the hill.
    And I softly listened, as I stood upon the hill.

    (written by Bridges/Holdridge)

  3. The Christmas Wish

    The Christmas Wish

    I don’t know if you believe in Christmas,
    or if you have presents underneath the Christmas tree.
    But if you believe in love, that will be more than enough
    for you to come and celebrate with me.

    For I have held the precious gift that love brings
    even though I’ve never saw a Christmas star.
    But I know there is a light, I have felt it burn inside,
    and I can see it shining from afar.

    Christmas is a time to come together, a time to put all differences aside.
    And I reach out my hand to the family of man
    to share the joy I feel at Christmas time.

    For the truth that binds us all together, I would like to say a simple prayer.
    That at this special time, you will have true peace of mind
    and love to last throughout the coming year.

    And if you believe in love, that will be more than enough
    for peace to last throughout the coming year.
    And peace on earth will last throughout the year.

  4. Medley: Alfie; The Christmas Tree; Carol For A Christmas Tree; It’s In Every One Of Us

    Medley: Alfie; The Christmas Tree; Carol For A Christmas Tree; It’s In Every One Of Us

    Did you ever hear the story of the Christmas Tree
    who just didn’t want to change the show
    He liked living in the woods and playing with squirrels, he liked icicles and snow.

    He liked wolves and eagles and grizzly bears
    and critters and creatures that crawled.
    Why bugs were some of his very best friends, spiders and ants and all.

    Now that’s not to say that he ever looked down on the vision of twinkling lights,
    or on mirrored bubbles and peppermint canes and a thousand other delights.
    And he often had dreams of tiny reindeer
    and a jolly old man and a sleigh full of toys and presents and wonderful things,
    and the story of Christmas Day.

    Oh, Alfie believed in Christmas all right, he was full of Christmas cheer.
    All of each and every day and all throughout the year.

    To him it was more than a special time much more than a special day,
    It was more than a beautiful story. it was a special kind of way.

    You see, some folks have never heard a jingle bell ring,
    And they’ve never heard of Santa Claus.
    They’ve never heard the story of the Son of God. And that made Alfie pause.

    Did that mean that they’d never know of peace on earth
    or the brotherhood of man?
    Or know how to love, or know how to give? If they can’t, no one can.
    You see, life is a very special kind of thing, not just for a chosen few.
    But for each and every living breathing thing. Not just me and you.

    So in your Christmas prayers this year, Alfie asked me if I’d ask you
    to say a prayer for the wind, and the water, and the wood,
    and those who live there, too.

  5. Silent Night, Holy Night

    Silent Night, Holy Night

    Stille nacht! Heil’ge nacht! Alles schlaft; einsam wacht
    Nur das traute hoch heilige paar. Holder knab’ im lockigten haar,
    Schlafe in himmlischer ruh!

    On December 24, 1818, the curet of a parish in Obendorf, Austria, Josef More,
    gave a poem that he written to a friend of his, Hans Greuber, who was also the
    choirmaster and organist in that church. He asked mister Greuber if he would
    write music for his poem and that he might write it for two solo voices and guitar
    accompaniment.  Because the organ being broken, he desperately wanted music
    being part of their Christmas Eve service.  Mr. Greuber wrote the melody to a song
    which has become the most beloved of all Christmas carols. Stille nacht, in English,
    silent night. Schlafe in himmlischer ruh. Sleep in heavenly peace.

    Silent night, holy night. All is calm, all is bright.
    Proud young virgin mother and child. Holy infant so tender and mild.
    Sleep in heavenly peace. Sleep in heavenly peace.

    and love to last throughout the coming year.

    And if you believe in love, that will be more than enough
    for peace to last throughout the coming year.
    And peace on earth will last throughout the year.

  4. Medley: Alfie; The Christmas Tree; Carol For A Christmas Tree; It’s In Every One Of Us

    Medley: Alfie; The Christmas Tree; Carol For A Christmas Tree; It’s In Every One Of Us

    Did you ever hear the story of the Christmas Tree
    who just didn’t want to change the show
    He liked living in the woods and playing with squirrels, he liked icicles and snow.

    He liked wolves and eagles and grizzly bears
    and critters and creatures that crawled.
    Why bugs were some of his very best friends, spiders and ants and all.

    Now that’s not to say that he ever looked down on the vision of twinkling lights,
    or on mirrored bubbles and peppermint canes and a thousand other delights.
    And he often had dreams of tiny reindeer
    and a jolly old man and a sleigh full of toys and presents and wonderful things,
    and the story of Christmas Day.

    Oh, Alfie believed in Christmas all right, he was full of Christmas cheer.
    All of each and every day and all throughout the year.

    To him it was more than a special time much more than a special day,
    It was more than a beautiful story. it was a special kind of way.

    You see, some folks have never heard a jingle bell ring,
    And they’ve never heard of Santa Claus.
    They’ve never heard the story of the Son of God. And that made Alfie pause.

    Did that mean that they’d never know of peace on earth
    or the brotherhood of man?
    Or know how to love, or know how to give? If they can’t, no one can.
    You see, life is a very special kind of thing, not just for a chosen few.
    But for each and every living breathing thing. Not just me and you.

    So in your Christmas prayers this year, Alfie asked me if I’d ask you
    to say a prayer for the wind, and the water, and the wood,
    and those who live there, too.

  5. Silent Night, Holy Night

    Silent Night, Holy Night

    Stille nacht! Heil’ge nacht! Alles schlaft; einsam wacht
    Nur das traute hoch heilige paar. Holder knab’ im lockigten haar,
    Schlafe in himmlischer ruh!

    On December 24, 1818, the curet of a parish in Obendorf, Austria, Josef More,
    gave a poem that he written to a friend of his, Hans Greuber, who was also the
    choirmaster and organist in that church. He asked mister Greuber if he would
    write music for his poem and that he might write it for two solo voices and guitar
    accompaniment.  Because the organ being broken, he desperately wanted music
    being part of their Christmas Eve service.  Mr. Greuber wrote the melody to a song
    which has become the most beloved of all Christmas carols. Stille nacht, in English,
    silent night. Schlafe in himmlischer ruh. Sleep in heavenly peace.

    Silent night, holy night. All is calm, all is bright.
    Proud young virgin mother and child. Holy infant so tender and mild.
    Sleep in heavenly peace. Sleep in heavenly peace.
