PRESENCE, COMPASSION, GENEROSITY CHRISTMAS EVE
Song by Gene Autry

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
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 how the reindeer loved him
As they shouted out with glee
“Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
You’ll go down in history”
 
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 how the reindeer loved him
As they shouted out with glee
“Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
You’ll go down in history”

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
To sing a love song
While we stroll along
Walking in a winter wonderland

In the meadow, we can build a snowman
We’ll 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

JINGLE BELLS

Dashing through the snow
In a one-horse open sleigh
O’er 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! Oh!

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way.
Oh! what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh. Hey!
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 Fanny Bright
Was seated by my side,
The horse was lean and lank
Misfortune seemed his lot
He got into a drifted bank
And then we got upsot.

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way.
Oh! what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh. Hey!
Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way;
Oh! what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

Sweetly singing o’r the plains
And the mountains in reply
Echo back their joyous strains

Why your joyous strains prolong?
Say what may the tidings be
Which inspire your heavenly song?

Gloria, in excelsis Deo
Gloria, in excelsis Deo

Come adore on bended knee
Christ the Lord the newborn King

See within a manger laid
Jesus, Lord of heaven and earth

Gloria, in excelsis Deo

We join the song the angels sing
Gather ‘round the new born king
Hallelujah, hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

O Holy Night

O Holy Night!
The stars are brightly shining
It is the night of the dear Savior’s birth!
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Till he appear’d and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope the weary soul rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn!

Fall on your knees,
Oh, hear the angel voices!
O night divine,
O night when Christ was born!
O night, divine, O night
O night divine!

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.

Fall on your knees,
Oh, hear the angel voices!
O night divine,
O night when Christ was born!
O night, divine, O night
O night divine!

Fall on your knees,
Oh, hear the angel voices!
O night divine,
O night when Christ was born!
O night, divine, O night
O night divine!

 

Joy to the World

Joy to The world! the Lord is come
Let earth receive her King
Let ev’ry heart prepare him room
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and nature sing

Joy to the world! the Savior reigns
Let men their songs employ
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy

And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness
And wonders of His love
And wonders of His love
And wonder wonders of His love

God of glory Lord of love
Hearts unfold like flowers before Thee
Opening to the sun above

Sleep in heavenly peace,

Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia,
Christ the Savior is born!
Christ the Savior is born

Silent night, holy night!
Son of God love’s pure light.
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth

Sleigh Ride

Just hear those sleigh bells jingling, ring ting tingling too
Come on it’s lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you
Outside the snow is falling and friends are calling, “Yoo 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 show, 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 a song of a wintery fairyland
 
Our cheeks are nice and rosy and comfy cozy are we
We’ve snuggled close together like two birds of a feather would be
Let’s take that 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 we will watch the chestnuts pop, pop, pop, pop
 
There’s a happy feeling nothing in this 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
These wonderful things are the things we remember all through our lives
 
Just hear those sleigh bells jingling, ring ting tingling, too
Come on it’s lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you
Outside the snow is falling and friends are calling, “Yoo 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 show, 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 a song of a wintery fairyland
 
Nice and rosy and comfy cozy are we
We’ve snuggled close together like two birds of a feather would be
Let’s take that road before us and sing a chorus or two
Come on it’s lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you
It’s lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you
Lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you
Lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you
Lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you
Lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you
Lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with 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.

Still through the cloven skies they come
With peaceful wings unfurled
And still their heavenly music floats
O’er all the weary world;
Above its sad and lowly plains
They bend on hovering wing.
And ever o’er its Babel sounds
The blessed angels sing.

Yet with te woes of sin and strife
The world hath suffered long;
Beneath the angel-strain have rolled
Two thousand years of wrong;
And man, at war with man, hears not
The love song which they bring:
O hush the noise, ye men of strife,
And hear the angels sing.

For lo! the days are hastening on,
By prophet bards foretold,
When, with the ever-circling years,
Shall come the Age of Gold;
When peace shall over all the earth
Its ancient splendors fling,
And all the world give back the song
Which now the angels sing.

We Three Kings

We three kings of orient are, 
Bearing gifts we traverse afar
Field and fountain, moor and mountain, 
Following yonder star.Oh, star of wonder, star of night, 
Star with royal beauty bright.
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide with thy perfect light.

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.

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 with 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.
Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding dying,
Sealed in the stone-cold tomb.

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

Hark! The Herald Angels Sing

Hark! the herald angels sing,
“Glory to the newborn King!”
Peace on earth, and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled
Joyful, all ye nations, rise,
Join the triumph of the skies;
With th’ angelic host proclaim,
“Christ is born in Bethlehem.”
Hark! the herald angels sing,
“Glory to the newborn King!”

Christ, by highest heav’n adored:
Christ, the everlasting Lord;
Late in time behold him come,
Offspring of the favored one.
Veil’d in flesh, the Godhead see;
Hail, th’incarnate Deity:
Pleased, as man, with men to dwell,
Jesus, our Emmanuel!
Hark! the herald angels sing,
“Glory to the newborn King!”

Hail! the heav’n born Prince of peace!
Hail! the Son of Righteousness!
Light and life to all he brings,
Risen with healing in his wings
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 newborn King!”
