I Saw Three Ships I saw three ships come sailing in On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day I saw three ships come sailing in On Christmas Day in the morning

And all the souls on earth shall sing On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day And all the souls on earth shall sing On Christmas Day in the morning

Wither sailed those ships all three On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day Wither sailed those ships all three On Christmas Day in the morning

Then let us all rejoice again On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day Then let us all rejoice again On Christmas Day in the morning

Oh they sailed into Bethlehem On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day They sailed into Bethlehem On Christmas Day in the morning

I saw three ships come sailing in On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day I saw three ships come sailing in On Christmas Day in the morning

And all the bells on earth shall ring On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day And all the bells on earth shall ring On Christmas Day in the morning

I saw three ships come sailing in On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day I saw three ships come sailing in On Christmas Day in the morning

One of the greatest joys of Christmas is having your family and friends by your side to celebrate it with you. On behalf of my family and staff I wish you a

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 Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer had a very shiny nose. And if you ever saw him, 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 as they shouted out with glee, Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, you’ll go down in history!

Silver Bells City sidewalks, busy sidewalks Dressed in holiday style. In the air there’s a feeling of Christmas. Children laughing, People passing Meeting smile after smile And on every street corner you’ll hear. Silver belIs, silver beIls It’s Christmas time in the city. Ring-a-ling, hear them sing. Soon it will be Christmas day. Strings of street lights, even stop lights Blink a bright red and green As the shoppers rush home with their treasures. Hear the snow crunch, see the kids bunch. This is Santa’s big scene. And above all this bustle you’ll hear. Silver belIs, silver beIls It’s Christmas time in the city. Ring-a-ling, hear them sing. Soon it will be Christmas day.

Merry Christmas This Holiday Season we wish you plenty of cheer, love and laughter with those held dear & the Very Best of Wishes for the Coming Year!

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!

Hark! The Herald Angels Sing Hark! the herald angels sing Glory to the new-born King Peace on earth and mercy mild God and sinners reconciled

Hail the Heaven-born Prince of Peace Hail the Son of Righteousness Light and life to all He brings Risen with healing in His wings

Joyful, all ye nations, rise Join the triumph of the skies With angelic host proclaim Christ is born in Bethlehem Hark! the herald angels sing Glory to the new-born King

Mild He lays His Glory by Born that man no more may die Born to raise the sons of earth Born to give them second birth Hark! the herald angels sing Glory to the new-born King

Christ, by highest heaven adored Christ, the everlasting Lord Late in time behold him come Offspring of the Virgin’s womb Hail the Flesh, the God Head see Hail the incarnate Deity Pleased as man with man to dwell Jesus, our Emmanuel! Hark! the herald angels sing Glory to the new-born King

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. 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. 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.

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. 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.

Away in the Manger Away in a manger No crib for His bed The little Lord Jesus Lay down His sweet head

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

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

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

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

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

From our family to yours, best wishes for a blessed and joyous Christmas.

As we celebrate the birth of our Savior, may the spirit of the season fill you with peace and hope.

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!)

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 blessings 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

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. O, 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. Thumpetty thump thump, Thumpety thump thump, Look at Frosty go.

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.” Thumpetty thump thump, Thumpety thump thump, Look at Frosty go. Thumpetty thump thump, Thumpety thump thump, Over the hills of snow.

Thumpetty thump thump, Thumpety 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.
