  1. Nativity
    Poet: Marie Helbert King


    Shepherds in their sheephide coats
    Watch the star intently
    Speak to flocks with voices hushed
    Move them forward gently.

    Time will hold its breath awhile
    Wind be still, be still,
    Soft the flight of angel wings
    Around this little hill.

    Unto us a child is given,
    Something strange and stranger . . .
    The King of Kings and Lord of Lords,
    An infant in a manger.

    His name shall be called, Wonderful,
    The Child is meek and lowly,
    The Comforter, the Prince of Peace,
    Holy, Holy, Holy.

  3. Saviour Of The World Born
    Poet: Unknown


    Christians awake, salute the happy morn,
    Whereon the Saviour of the world was born;
    Rise to adore the mystery of Love,
    Which hosts of angels chanted from above:
    With them the joyful tidings first begun,
    Of God Incarnate and the Virgin’s Son.

    Then to the watchful shepherds it was told,
    Who heard the angelic herald’s voice: “Behold,
    I bring glad tidings of a Saviour’s birth,
    To you and all the nations upon earth;
    This day hath God fulfilled his promised word,
    This day is born a Saviour -Christ the Lord.

    "In David’s city, shepherds, ye shall find
    The long foretold Redeemer of mankind,
    Wrapt up in swaddling clothes, the Babe divine
    Lies in a manger - this shall be your sign."
    He spake, and straightway the celestial choir
    In hymns of joy unknown before conspire.

    The praises of redeeming love they sung,
    And heaven’s whole arch with hallelujahs rung!
    God’s highest glory was their anthem still,
    Peace upon earth, and mutual good will.
    To Bethlehem straight the enlighten’d shepherds ran,
    To see the wonder God had wrought for man.

    Artless and watchful as these favour’d swains,
    While virgin meekness in their hearts remains;
    Trace we the Babe, who has retriev’d our loss,
    From his poor manger to his bitter cross;
    Tread in his steps, assisted by his grace,
    Till man’s first heavenly state again takes place;

    Then we may hope, the angelic thrones among,
    To find redeem’d a glad triumphant throng;
    He that was bom upon that joyful day,
    Around us all his glory shall display:
    Sav’d by his love, incessant we shall sing
    Eternal praise to heaven’s all-powerful King.

  5. Came To Save All
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer


    The message He brought, the wisdom he told
    To this day has not grown old.
    He came to save us all
    From God, He received His call.

    That baby born on the night
    To the world brought new light.
    Thank you Jesus we praise you
    God's promises are so true.

  7. The Holly And The Ivy
    Poet: Unknown


    The Holly and the Ivy,
    Now both are full well grown;
    Of all the trees that spring in wood.
    The Holly bears the crown.
    The Holly bears a blossom,
    As white as lily flower;
    And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ,
    To be our sweet Saviour,

    The Holly bears a berry.
    As red as any blood;
    And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ,
    To do poor sinners good.
    The Holly bears a prickle,
    As sharp as any thorn;
    And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ,
    On Christmas day in the morn,

    The Holly bears a bark,
    N As bitter as any gall;
    And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ,
    For to redeem us all.
    The Holly and the Ivy,
    Now both are full well grown;
    Of all the trees that spring in wood,
    The Holly bears the crown



  8. And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ, For to redeem us all.

  9. Jesus Sent Out Of Love
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer


    He did not come in glory
    He came to tell a story
    About God's love that was so true
    Given for all, for me and you.

    Riches he did not bring
    But you could hear the angels sing,
    "Alleluia, a Savoir is born".
    Mankind was no longer forlorn.

    So on this Christmas morn
    A day that is not the norm
    Give thanks to God above
    Who sent Jesus out of love.



  10. Give thanks to God above Who sent Jesus out of love.

  11. Shepherds, Rejoice
    Poet: Isaac Watts


    Shepherds, rejoice, lift up your eyes.
    And send your fears away;
    News from the region of the skies!
    Salvation's born to-day.

    Jesus, the God whom Angels fear,
    Comes down to dwell with you;
    To-day He makes His entrance here,
    But not as monarchs do.

    No gold, nor purple swaddling-bands,
    Nor royal shining things;
    A manger for His cradle stands.
    And holds the King of kings.

    Go, shepherds, where the Infant lies,
    And see His humble throne:
    With tears of joy in all your eyes
    Go, shepherds, kiss the Son.

    Thus Gabriel sang; and straight around
    The heavenly armies throng;
    They tune their harps to lofty sound,
    And thus conclude the song:

    "Glory to God that reigns above,
    Let peace surround the Earth;
    Mortals shall know their Maker's love
    At their Redeemer's birth."

    Lord! and shall angels have their songs.
    And men no tunes to raise?
    O may we lose these useless tongues
    When they forget to praise!

    Glory to God that reigns above,
    That pitied us, forlorn!
    We join to sing our Maker's love -
    For there's a Saviour born!

    The first good joy that Mary had,
    It was the joy of one;
    To see the blessed Jesus
    When He was first her Son.
    When He was first her Son, good Lord,
    And happy may we be;

    To see her own Son Jesus
    To read the Bible o'er.

    To see her own Son Jesus
    To raise the dead to life.

    The next good joy that Mary had.

    To see her own Son Jesus
    Upon the Crucifix.

    The next good joy that Mary had.
    It was the joy of seven;
    To see her own Son Jesus
    Ascending into heaven.
    Ascending into heaven, good Lord.
    And happy may we be;
    Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
    To all eternity.

    Imagine leaving the beauty of heaven
    To come to this earth.
