Joy to the World Joy to the world! the Lord is 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 earth! 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.

No more let sins and sorrows grow, nor thorns infest the ground; He comes to make His blessing flow far as the curse is found, far as the curse is found, far as, far as the curse is found. 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

Here Comes Santa Claus Here comes Santa Claus! Here comes Santa Claus! Right down Santa Claus Lane! Vixen and Blitzen and all his reindeer are pulling on the reins. Bells are ringing, children singing; All is merry and bright. Hang your stockings and say your prayers, ‘Cause Santa Claus comes tonight.

Away in a Manger

Away in a manger no crib for a 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 cradle Till 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 fit us for Heaven, To live with Thee there.

We Wish You A Merry Christmas We wish you a merry Christmas We wish you a merry Christmas We wish you a merry Christmas And a happy New Year. Glad tidings we bring To you and your kin; Glad tidings for Christmas And a happy New Year!

We won’t go until we get some We won’t go until we get some We won’t go until we get some So bring it out here! Glad tidings we bring To you and your kin; Glad tidings for Christmas And a happy New Year!

O star of wonder, star of night, Star with royal beauty bright. Westward leading, still proceeding, Guide us to thy perfect light. Myrrh is mine, Its bitter perfume breathes A life of gathering gloom. Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying, Sealed in the stone cold tomb.

Born a King on Bethlehem’s plain, Gold I bring to crown Him again King for ever, ceasing never Over us all to reign.

O star of wonder, star of night, Star with royal beauty bright. Westward leading, still proceeding, Guide us to thy perfect light.

O star of wonder, star of night, Star with royal beauty bright. Westward leading, still proceeding, Guide us to thy perfect light.

We three kings of orient are, Bearing gifts we traverse afar Field and fountain, Moor and mountain, Following yonder star.

Frankincense to offer have I, Incense owns a Deity nigh Prayer and praising, all men raising, Worship Him, God most high.

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.

Down to the village, with a broomstick in his hand, Running here and there all around the square saying, Catch me if you can.

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.

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!”

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. O, Frosty the snowman was as alive as he could be, and the children say he could laugh and play just the same as you and me. 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.”

For Frosty the snowman had to hurry on his way, but he waved goodbye saying, “Don’t you cry, I’ll be back again some day.” Thumpetty thump thump, Thumpety thump thump, Look at Frosty go. Thumpetty thump thump, Thumpety thump thump, Over the hills of snow.

Merry Christmas From all of us to all of you... hope your Christmas is paw-sitively perfect, and your New Year, too!

Jingle Bells Dashing through the snow On a one-horse open sleigh, Over the fields we go, Laughing all the way; Bells on bob-tail ring, Making spirits bright, What fun it is to ride and sing A sleighing song tonight Jingle bells, jingle bells, Jingle all the way! O 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 Fanny Bright Was seated by my side; The horse was lean and lank; Misfortune seemed his lot; He got into a drifted bank, And we, we got upsot. Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way! What fun it is to ride In a one-horse open sleigh.

A day or two ago, The story I must tell I went out on the snow And on my back I fell; A gent was riding by In a one-horse open sleigh, He laughed as there I sprawling lie, But quickly drove away. Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way! What fun it is to ride In a one-horse open sleigh. Now the ground is white Go it while you’re young, Take the girls tonight And sing this sleighing song; Just get a bob-tailed bay Two-forty as his speed Hitch him to an open sleigh And crack! you’ll take the lead. Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way! What fun it is to ride In a one-horse open sleigh.

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer You know Dasher and Dancer And Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid And Donner and Blitzen. But do you recall The most famous reindeer of all? Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer (reindeer) Had a very shiny nose (like a light bulb) And if you ever saw it (saw it) You would even say it glows (like a flash light) All of the other reindeer (reindeer) Used to laugh and call him names (like Pinochio) They never let poor Rudolph

(Rudolph) Play in any reindeer games (like Monopoly) Then one foggy Christmas Eve Santa came to say (Ho Ho Ho) Rudolph with your nose so bright Won’t you guide my sleigh tonight? Then all the reindeer loved him (loved him) And they shouted out with glee (yippee) “Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer (reindeer) You’ll go down in history!” (like Columbus)

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen, Let nothing you dismay; Remember Christ, our Saviour, Was born on Christmas day, To save us all from Satan’s power When we were gone astray. O tidings of comfort and joy, Comfort and joy, O tidings of comfort and joy. In Bethlehem, in Jewry, This blessed Babe was born, And laid within a manger, Upon this blessed morn; That which His Mother Mary, Did nothing take in scorn. O tidings of comfort and joy, Comfort and joy, O tidings of comfort and joy. From God our Heavenly Father, A blessed Angel came; And unto certain Shepherds Brought tidings of the same: How that in Bethlehem was born The Son of God by Name. O tidings of comfort and joy, Comfort and joy, O tidings of comfort and joy. “Fear not,” then said the Angel, “let nothing you affright, This day is born a Saviour Of pure Virgin bright, To free all those who trust in Him

From Satan’s power and might.” O tidings of comfort and joy, Comfort and joy, O tidings of comfort and joy. The shepherds at those tidings Rejoiced much in mind, And left their flocks a-feeding, In tempest, storm, and wind: And went to Bethlehem straightway, The Son of God to find. O tidings of comfort and joy, Comfort and joy, O tidings of comfort and joy. And when they came to Bethlehem Where our dear Saviour lay, They found Him in a manger, Where oxen feed on hay; His Mother Mary kneeling down, Unto the Lord did pray. O tidings of comfort and joy, Comfort and joy, O tidings of comfort and joy. 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. O tidings of comfort and joy, Comfort and joy, O tidings of comfort and joy.

A Holly Jolly Christmas Have a holly jolly Christmas, it’s the best time of the year. I don’t know if there’ll be snow but have a cup of cheer. Have a holly jolly Christmas, and when you walk down the street Say hello to friends you know

and everyone you meet. Oh, Ho, the mistletoe hung where you can see. Somebody waits for you, kiss her once for me. Have a holly, jolly Christmas, and in case you didn’t hear. O, by golly, have a holly jolly Christmas this year.

The Christmas Song Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost nipping at 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, Merry Christmas to you!

It Came Upon the Midnight Clear It came upon the midnight clear, That glorious song of old, From angels bending near the earth, To touch their harps of gold: “Peace on the earth, good will to men, From heaven’s all gracious King;” The world in solemn stillness lay To hear the angels sing.

O ye, beneath life’s crushing load, Whose forms are bending low, Who toil along the climbing way, With painful steps and slow. Look now, for glad and golden hours Come swiftly on the wing, O rest beside the weary road, And hear the angels sing.

For lo! the days are hastening Still through the cloven skies on, By prophets seen of old, When with the ever circling they come, With peaceful wings unfurled; years, And still their heavenly music Shall come the time foretold, When the new heaven and floats O’er all the weary earth shall own world: Above its sad and lowly plains The Prince of Peace their They bend on hovering wing; King, And the whole world send And ever o’er its Babel back the song sounds The blessed angels Which now the angels sing. sing.

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 angel voices! O night divine, O night when Christ was born! O night divine, O night, O night divine! Led by the light of Faith Serenely beaming, With glowing hearts By His cradle we stand. So led by light of a star Sweetly gleaming, Here came the wise men From Orient land. The King of Kings lay thus In lowly manger,

In all our trials Born to be our Friend! He knows our need, To our weakness no stranger; Behold your King! Before the lowly bend! Behold your King! your King! Before Him bend. 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, Oh praise His name forever, His pow’r and glory evermore proclaim His pow’r and glory Evermore proclaim.

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.

Let There Be Peace on Earth Let There Be Peace on Earth and let it begin with me. Let There Be Peace on Earth, the peace that was meant to be! With God as our Father, brothers all are we. Let me walk with my brother in perfect harmony.

Let peace begin with me. Let this be the moment now. With ev’ry breath I take, let this be my solemn vow; To take each moment and live each moment in peace eternally! Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me!

All the best of the holiday season. Peace, Joy and Love

The First Noel The first Noel the angels did say Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay; In fields as 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. 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. This star drew nigh to the northwest, O’er Bethlehem it took it rest, And there it did both stop and stay Right over the place where Jesus lay. Then entered in those wise men three Full reverently upon their knee, And offered there in his presence Their gold, and myrrh, and frakincense. Then let us all with one accord Sing praises to our heavenly Lord; That hath made heaven and earth of naught, And with his blood mankind hath bought.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas! Our very best wishes for a merry and bright holiday!

Do You Hear What I Hear? Said the night wind to the little lamb Do you see what I see? ‘Way up in the sky, little lamb Do you see what I see? A star, a star Dancing in the night With a tail as big as a kite With a tail as big as a kite Said the little lamb to the shepherd boy Do you hear what I hear? Ringing thru the sky, shepherd boy Do you hear what I hear? A song, a song High above the tree With a voice as big as the sea With a voice as big as the sea Said the shepherd boy to the mighty king Do you know what I know? In your palace warm, mighty king Do you know what I know? A Child, a Child

Shivers in the cold Let us bring Him silver and gold Let us bring Him silver and gold Said the king to the people ev’rywhere Listen to what I say! Pray for peace, people ev’rywhere Listen to what I say! The Child, the Child Sleeping in the night He will bring us goodness and light, He will bring us goodness and light.

Merry Christmas! Hope your Christmas is filled with warm thoughts and glad tidings. May those you love join you in celebrating this special time. From Chief, Council & Membership

O Little Town Of Bethlehem O little town of Bethlehem, How still we see thee lie. Above thy deep and dreamless sleep The silent stars go by; Yet in thy dark streets shineth The everlasting Light; The hopes and fears of all the years Are met in thee tonight. For Christ is born of Mary, And, gathered all above While mortals sleep, the angels keep Their watch of wondering love. O morning stars, together Proclaim the holy birth. And praises sing to God the King. And peace to men on earth. How silently, how silently The wondrous gift is given! So God imparts to human hearts The blessings of His heaven.

No ear may hear His coming; But in this world of sin, Where meek souls will receive Him, Still The dear Christ enters in. Where children, pure and happy, Pray to the Blessed Child; Where misery cries out to thee, Son of the Mother mild; Where charity stands watching, And faith holds wide the door, The dark night wakes, the glory breaks, And Christmas comes once more. O Holy Child of Bethlehem, Descend to us, we pray; Cast out our sin and enter in; Be born in us today! We hear the Christmas angels The great glad tidings tell; O come to us, abide with us, Our Lord Emmanuel!

Season’s Greetings Hope your holiday season is full of love and laughter.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Santa Claus is Coming to Town O! You better watch out You better not cry Better not pout I’m telling you why Santa Claus is coming to town. He’s making a list, And checking it twice; Gonna find out who’s naughty and nice. Santa Claus is coming to town.

He sees you when you’re sleeping He knows when you’re awake He knows if you’ve been bad or good So be good for goodness sake! O! You better watch out! You better not cry. Better not pout, I’m telling you why. Santa Claus is coming to town.

Let It Snow, Let It Snow Oh, the weather outside is frightful, But the fire is so delightful, And since we’ve no place to go, Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

When we finally say good night, How I’ll hate going out in the storm; But if you really hold me tight All the way home I’ll be warm.

The fire is slowly dying, It doesn’t show signs of stopping, And, my dear, we’re still And I brought some good-bye-ing, corn for popping; But as long as you love me so. The lights are turned way Let it snow, let it snow, down low, let it snow. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

Good King Wenceslas Good King Wenceslas looked out On the feast of Stephen, When the snow lay round about, Deep and crisp and even. Brightly shown the moon that night, Though the frost was cruel, When a poor man came in sight, Gathering winter fuel. Hither, page, and stand by me. If thou know 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. Bring me flesh, and bring me wine. Bring me pine logs hither. Thou and I will see him dine When we bear the thither.

Page and monarch, forth they went, Forth they went together Through the rude wind’s wild lament And the bitter weather. Sire, the night is darker now, And the wind blows stronger. Fails my heart, I know not how. I can go no longer. Ark my footsteps my good page, Tread thou in them boldly: Thou shalt find the winter’s rage Freeze thy blood less coldly. In his master’s step he trod, Where the snow lay dented. 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.
