  1. Christmas Like a Lullaby

    Christmas Like a Lullaby

    Christmas like a lullaby steals across the land
    A breeze upon the waters, rain fall on the sand
    We celebrate a baby born from spirit into man
    And Christmas like a lullaby steals across the land

    It’s morning in Australia; In fact, it’s Christmas day
    And Colorado never seemed so very far away

    Back where night has fallen and it’s still Christmas Eve
    And snow is in the mountains that I always hate to leave
    Christmas bells are ringing there’s presents ‘neath the tree
    I know that it’s been said before and now I know it’s true
    That home is where the heart is and Christmas lives there too

    And on this morning Peace on Earth is still your fervent prayer
    And I can feel it being whispered softly everywhere
    And guns are called to silence and anger called to still
    And brotherhood and sisterhood surrounded by goodwill

    Christmas like a lullaby steals across the land
    A breeze upon the waters, rain fall on the sand
    We celebrate a baby aborn from spirit into man
    And Christmas like a lullaby steals across the land

  2. The First Noel

    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 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!

    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.
    Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
    Born is the King of Israel!

    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.
    Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
    Born is the King of Israel!

    Then entered in those Wise men three
    Full reverently upon their knee
    And offered there in His presence
    Their gold and myrrh and frankincense.
    Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
    Born is the King of Israel!

    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.
    Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
    Born is the King of Israel!

    (Sandys/Gilbert)

  3. Away in a Manger

    Away in a Manger

    Away in a manger,
    No crib for His bed
    The little Lord Jesus
    Laid down His sweet head

    The stars in the bright sky
    Looked down where He lay
    The little Lord Jesus
    Asleep on the hay

    The cattle are lowing
    The poor Baby wakes
    But little Lord Jesus
    No crying He makes

    I love Thee, Lord Jesus
    Look down from the sky
    And stay by my side,
    ‘Til morning is nigh.

    Be near me, Lord Jesus,
    I ask Thee to stay
    Close by me forever
    And love me I pray

    Bless all the dear children
    In Thy tender care
    And take us to heaven
    To live with Thee there

  4. The Children of Bethlehem

    The Children of Bethlehem

    The children of Bethlehem,
    One cold winter’s night,
    Were wakened by singing,
    And a heavenly light.
    With whispers and murmurs,
    On pattering feet,
    The children of Bethlehem
    Came into the street.

    The people were sleeping,
    All safely in bed.
    The children heard singing
    In the sky overhead.
    They heard, “Peace will be with you,
    Whoever you are.
    Oh, come to the stable
    Come, follow the Star!”

    And the children of Bethlehem,
    That cold winter’s night,
    Came down to the stable;
    They followed the light.
    Now the roosters were crowing,
    At the dawning of day.
    The baby lay sleeping.
    In the manger he lay.

    The children of Bethlehem,
    Came in two by two.
    They came to the manger,
    That the Star brought them to.
    They came to the manger,
    Where the sweet Baby lay.
    The children of Bethlehem,
    Showed us the way.

  5. Jingle Bells

    Jingle Bells

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

    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

  6. White Christmas

    White Christmas

    I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
    Just like the ones I used to know
    Where the treetops glisten,
    and children listen
    To hear sleigh bells in the snow

    I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
    With every Christmas card I write
    May your days be merry and bright
    And may all your Christmases be white

    I’m dreaming of a white Christmas
    With every Christmas card I write

  1. Marvelous Toy

    Marvelous Toy

    When I was just a wee little boy, full of health and joy.
    One Christmas morning I received The Marvellous Little Toy.
    A wonder to behold it was with many colours bright
    And the moment I laid eyes on it, it became my heart’s delight.

    It went zip when it moved and bop when it stopped whirrrrr when it stood
    still
    I never knew just what it was and I guess I never will.

    The first time that I picked it up I had a big surprise.
    For right on it’s bottom were two big buttons that looked like big green eyes.
    I first pushed one and then the other, then I twisted it’s lid.
    And when I set it down again, this is what it did.

    It went zip when it moved and bop when it stopped whirrrrr when it stood still
    I never knew just what it was and I guess I never will.

    It first marched left and then marched right, then marched under a chair
    and when I looked where it had gone it wasn’t even there.
    I started to cry but my Daddy laughed ’cause he knew that I would find.
    when i turned around my marvellous toy would be chugging from behind.

    It went zip when it moved and bop when it stopped and whirrrrr when it stood
    still
    I never knew just what it was and I guess I never will.

    The years have gone by too quickly it seems, I have my own little boy.
    And yesterday I gave to him my marvellous little toy
    His eyes nearly popped right out of his head and he gave a squeal of glee…
    Neither one of us knows just what it is but he loves it just like me.

    It still goes zip when it moves and bop when it stops, whirrrrr when it
    stands still
    I never knew just what it was and I guess I never will.

  2. Blue Christmas

    Blue Christmas

    I’ll have a blue Christmas without you;
    I’ll be so blue thinking about you.
    Decorations of red
    on a green Christmas tree
    Just won’t mean a thing if
    you’re not here with me
    And when those blue heartaches start hurting,
    I’ll have some blue memories for certain;
    You’ll be doing all right
    with your Christmas of white,
    But I’ll have a blue, blue Christmas.

  3. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

    Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

    Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer had a very shiny nose.
    And if you ever saw it, you would even say it glows.
    All of the other reindeer used to laugh and call him names,
    they never let poor Rudolph join in any reindeer games.

    Then one foggy Christmas Eve, Santa came to say,
    “Rudolph with your nose so bright, won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?”
    Then all the reindeer loved him and they shouted out with glee,
    “Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, you’ll go down in history.”

  5. Mary’s Little Boy Child

    Mary’s Little Boy Child

    Long time ago in Bethlehem
    So the Holy Bible say
    Mary’s boy child Jesus Christ
    Was born on Christmas day

    Hark now hear the angels sing
    A new king born today
    And man will live forevermore
    Because of Christmas day

    Trumpets sound and angels sing
    Listen what they say
    That man will live forevermore
    Because of Christmas day

    While shepherds watch their flock by night
    They see a bright new shining star
    Then hear a choir sing
    The music seemed to come from afar

    Now Joseph and his wife Mary
    Come to Bethlehem that night
    Then find no place to born the child
    Not a single room was in sight

    Hark now hear the angels sing
    A new king born today
    And man will live forevermore
    Because of Christmas day

    Trumpets sound and angels sing
    Listen what they say
    That man will live forevermore
    Because of Christmas day

    By and by they find a little nook
    In a stable all forlorn
    And in a manger cold and dark
    Mary’s little boy was born

  6. The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire)

    The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire)

    Chestnuts roasting on an open fire,
    Jack Frost nipping on your nose,
    Yuletide carols being sung by a choir,
    And folks dressed up like Eskimos.

    Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe,
    Help to make the season bright.
    Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow,
    Will find it hard to sleep tonight.

    They know that Santa’s on his way;
    He’s loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh.
    And every mother’s child is going to spy,
    To see if reindeer really know how to fly.

    And so I’m offering this simple phrase,
    To kids from one to ninety-two,
    Although its been said many times, many ways,
    A very Merry Christmas to you

    (written by Torme/Wells)

  7. 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 Yule-tide gay,
    From now on,
    our 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.

    The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire)

    Chestnuts roasting on an open fire,
    Jack Frost nipping on your nose,
    Yuletide carols being sung by a choir,
    And folks dressed up like Eskimos.

    Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe,
    Help to make the season bright.
    Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow,
    Will find it hard to sleep tonight.

    They know that Santa’s on his way;
    He’s loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh.
    And every mother’s child is going to spy,
    To see if reindeer really know how to fly.

    And so I’m offering this simple phrase,
    To kids from one to ninety-two,
    Although its been said many times, many ways,
    A very Merry Christmas to you

  7. 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 Yule-tide gay,
    From now on,
    our 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.
