We Three Kings We three kings of Orient are Bearing gifts we traverse afar. Field and fountain, moor and mountain, Following yonder star. O star of wonder, star of night, Star of royal beauty bright, Westward leading, still proceeding, Guide us to thy perfect light. Born a king on Bethlehem’s plain, Gold I bring to crown Him again, King forever, ceasing never Over us all to reign. O star of wonder, star of night, Star of royal beauty bright, Westward leading, still proceeding, Guide us to thy perfect light. Frankincense to offer have I. Incense owns a Deity nigh. Prayer and praising all men raising, Worship Him, God on high. O star of wonder, star of night, Star of royal beauty bright,

Westward leading, still proceeding, Guide us to thy perfect light. Myrrh is mine: Its bitter perfume Breaths a life of gathering gloom. Sorrow, sighing, bleeding, dying, Sealed in a stone-cold tomb. O star of wonder, star of night, Star of royal beauty bright, Westward leading, still proceeding, Guide us to thy perfect light. Glorious now behold Him arise, King and God and Sacrifice. Alleluia, alleluia! Earth to heav’n replies. O star of wonder, star of night, Star of royal beauty bright, Westward leading, still proceeding, Following yonder star. O star of wonder, star of night, Star of royal beauty bright, Westward leading,still proceeding, Following yonder star!

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 May your days be merry and bright And may all your Christmases be white.

We would like to wish everyone a

Merry Christmas

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 (Chorus:) Jingle bells, jingle bells, Jingle all the way, Oh what fun it is to ride In a one-horse open sleigh. A 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 go into a drifted bank

And then we got upsot! (Chorus:) Jingle bells, jingle bells, Jingle all the way, Oh what fun it is to ride In a one-horse open sleigh. Now the ground is white, Go do it while you’re young, Take the girls tonight, And sing the sleighing song, Just get a bobtail’d bay, Two forty as his speed, Then hitch him to an open sleigh And crack! You’ll take the lead. (Chorus:) Jingle bells, jingle bells, Jingle all the way, Oh what fun it is to ride In a one-horse open sleigh.

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. O Sing, choirs of angels, Sing in exultation, Sing all that hear in heaven God’s holy word. Give to our Father 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. All Hail! Lord, we greet Thee, Born this happy morning, O Jesus! for evermore be Thy name adored. 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, Christ the Lord.


The Christmas Song Chestnuts roasting on an open fire Jack Frost nipping at your nose Yule-tide 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 gonna 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 it’s been said Many times, many ways Merry Christmas to you.

Christmas Greeting 8815 - 96A Street | 250-7876071


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 were 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

We wish you all the very best! to our valued customers, associates, neighbours and friends.

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! Wondrous star, lend thy light! With the angels let us sing Alleluia to our King! Christ the Saviour is here, Jesus the Saviour is here!

Silent night, holy night! Shepherds quake at the sight! Glories stream from heaven afar; Heavenly hosts sing Al-le-lu-ia! Christ the Saviour is born! Christ the Saviour 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.

Sleigh Ride Just hear those sleigh bells jingle-ing Ring ting tingle-ing too Come on, it’s lovely weather For a sleigh ride together with you Outside the snow is falling And friends are calling “You Hoo” Come on, it’s lovely weather For a sleigh ride together with you Giddy-yap giddy-yap giddy-yap let’s go Let’s look at the snow We’re riding in a wonderland of snow Giddy-yap giddy-yap giddy-yap it’s grand Just holding your hand We’re gliding along with the song Of a wintry fairy land Our cheeks are nice and rosy And comfy cozy are we We’re snuggled up together like two Birds of a feather would be Let’s take the road before us

And sing a chorus or two Come on, it’s lovely weather For a sleigh ride together with you There’s a birthday party at the home of Farmer Gray It’ll be the perfect ending of a perfect day We’ll be singing the songs we love to sing without a single stop At the fireplace while we watch the chestnuts pop Pop! Pop! Pop! There’s a happy feeling nothing in the world can buy When they pass around the coffee and the pumpkin pie It’ll nearly be like a picture print by Currier and Ives These wonderful things are the things We remember all through our lives

Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer You know Dasher, and Dancer, and Prancer, and Vixen, Comet, and Cupid, and Donder and Blitzen But do you recall The most famous reindeer of all Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer had a very shiny nose and if you ever saw it you would even say it glows.

They never let poor Rudolph play 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 as they shouted out with glee, Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, you’ll go down in history!

All of the other reindeer used to laugh and call him names

Frosty The Snowman Frosty the snowman was a jolly happy soul With a corncob pipe and a button nose and two eyes made out of coal Frosty the snowman is a fairy tale they say He was made of snow but the children know how he came to life one day There must have been some magic in that old silk hat they found For when they placed it on his head he began to dance around Oh Frosty the snowman was alive as he could be And the children say he could laugh and play just the same as you and me Thumpity thump thump thumpity thump thump Look at Frosty go Thumpity thump thump thumpity thump thump Over the hills of snow

Frosty the snowman knew the sun was hot that day So he said Let’s run and we’ll have some fun now before I melt away Down to the village with a broomstick in his hand Running here and there all around the square saying Catch me if you can He led them down the streets of town right to the traffic cop And he only paused a moment when he heard him holler “Stop!” For Frosty the snow man had to hurry on his way But he waved goodbye saying Don’t you cry I’ll be back again some day thumpity thump thump thumpity thump thump Look at Frosty go thumpity thump thump thumpity thump thump Over the hills of snow

During this season of giving let us take time to slow down and enjoy the simple things. May this wonderful time of year touch your heart in a special way. Wishing you much happiness throughout the holidays!

Happy New Year


O Holy Night O 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! 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! 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!

Wishing everyone the Peace the Angles sang that night! 9422 100 Street • (250) 785-9099

Winter Wonderland Sleigh bells ring, are you listening In the lane, snow is glistening A beautiful sight We’re happy tonight Walking in a winter wonderland

Later on, we’ll conspire As we dream by the fire To face unafraid The plans that we’ve made Walking in a winter wonderland

Gone away is the bluebird Here to stay is a new bird He sings a love song As we go along Walking in a winter wonderland

In the meadow we can build a snowman And pretend that he’s a circus clown We’ll have lots of fun with mister snowman Until the other kids knock him down

In the meadow we can build a snowman Then pretend that he is Parson Brown He’ll say, Are you married? We’ll say, No man But you can do the job When you’re in town

When it snows, ain’t it thrilling Though your nose gets a chilling We’ll frolic and play, the Eskimo way Walking in a winter wonderland Walking in a winter wonderland Walking in a winter wonderland

Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer CHORUS Grandma got run over by a reindeer Walking home from our house Christmas Eve. You can say there’s no such thing as Santa, But as for me an’ Grandpa, we believe. She’d been drinking too much eggnog, And we begged her not to go. But she forgot her medication, And she staggered out the door into the snow. When we found her Christmas morning, At the scene of the attack She had hoof prints on her forehead, And incriminating Claus marks on her back. CHORUS Now we’re all so proud of Grandpa, He’s been taking this so well. See him in there watching football,

Drinking beer and playing cards with cousin Mel. It’s not Christmas without Grandma, All the family’s dressed in black. And we just can’t help but wonder Should we open up her gifts or send them back? (SEND THEM BACK!!! ) CHORUS Now the goose is on the table And the pudding made of fig (ahhhhh!) And the blue and silver candles, That would just have matched the hair in Grandma’s wig. I’ve warned all my friends and neighbours, Better watch out for yourselves. They should never give a license, To a man who drives a sleigh and plays with elves. (Sing it, Grandpa!)

Bells are ringing, children singing; All is merry and bright. Hang your stockings and say your prayers, ‘Cause Santa Claus comes tonight.

Here comes Santa Claus! Here comes Santa Claus! Right down Santa Claus Lane! He’s got a bag that is filled with toys for the boys and girls again. Hear those sleigh bells jingle jangle, What a beautiful sight. Jump in bed, cover up your head, ‘Cause Santa Claus comes tonight.
