  1. Christmas Songs
    Poet: Julie Hebert, ©2011


    Christmas songs are so much fun,
    I love to sing all year long.
    The problem is my friends can't stand them,
    I wish they'd sing along.

    I know they think they should be saved,
    For Christmas time at best.
    But why not practice them all year,
    I don't understand their request!

    Christmas songs are so darn catchy,
    I couldn't possibly just forget.
    They will just have to get over it,
    And sing with me a duet!



  2. Have yourself a merry little Christmas. Let your heart be light. From now on your troubles will be out of sight.”
 Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas


  3. Songs Say So Much
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, ©2019


    Christmas songs can say so much
    They give the holiday a special touch.
    They always have that familiar jingle
    They even make some of us want to wiggle.

    But most importantly they tell a story
    One that is amazing and full of glory.
    They tell of our Saviors birth.
    The story has been told around the earth.

    When we hear the familiar tunes sing out
    Be thankful and have no doubt
    Let the words of the songs
    Remind you of Jesus and that you belong.



  4. Sing We All Merrily
    Poet Unknown


    Sing we all merrily,
    Christmas is here,
    The day that we love best
    Of days in the year.

    Bring forth the holly,
    The box and the bay,
    Deck out our cottage
    For glad Christmas Day.

    Sing we all merrily,
    Draw round the fire.
    Sister and brother.
    Grandson and sire.

  6. Oh Come All Ye Faithful
    Come and behold Him
    Born the King of Angels!
    Oh Come All Ye Faithful



  7. I heard the bells on Christmas Day their old familiar carols play
  8. I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day
    Poet: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

    I heard the bells on Christmas day
    Their old familiar carols play,
    And wild and sweet the words repeat
    Of peace on earth, good will to men.

    I thought how, as the day had come,
    The belfries of all Christendom
    Had rolled along th'unbroken song
    Of peace on earth, good will to men.

    And in despair I bowed my head:
    "There is no peace on earth," I said
    "For hate is strong, and mocks the song
    Of peace on earth, good will to men."

    Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
    "God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;
    The wrong shall fail, the right prevail,
    With peace on earth, good will to men."

    Till, ringing, singing on its way,
    The world revolved from night to day
    A voice, a chime, a chant sublime,
    Of peace on earth, good will to men.



  9. Away In A Manager
    Away in a manger, no crib for his 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 Child, the Child sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light
  10. Do You Hear What I Hear
    The Child, the Child sleeping in the night
    He will bring us goodness and light



  11. It Came Upon a Midnight Clear
    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."



  12. Mary's Boy Child
    Mary's boy child Jesus Christ,
    was born on Christmas Day.
    And man will live for evermore,
    because of Christmas Day.



  13. The Old Song
    Poet: A. G. R.

    The angels sang in the silent night,
    While the shepherds watched, and the beams were bright;
    And though years like a river have flowed along,
    Yet we are singing the angels' song
    Peace upon earth, and to men good-will,
    And glory to God, we are singing still.

    They herald yet the joyful morn,
    When the Prince of Peace as a child was born;
    And we look back through the ages dim,
    And come, like the shepherds, to worship Him;
    Saviour, Redeemer, and Priest, and King,
    Our hearts are the gifts that to Thee we bring.

    Fir-tree and pine, and the myrtle bough.
    Are woven in garlands to greet Thee now,
    And the frosty sunshine of Christmas Day,
    Is fairer to us than the light of May.
    O Jesus! Lord of the worlds above,
    Thine be the glory, and ours the love.

    So shall we welcome Thee, year by year,
    So shalt Thou grow in our hearts more dear,
    So shall no taint of the world's alloy
    Shadow the light of our Christmas joy;
    While peace upon earth, and to men good-will,
    And glory to God, we are singing still.



  14. Christmas Carol
    Poet: Dr. J. G. Holland

    There's a song in the air!
    There's a star in the sky!
    There's a mother's deep prayer
    And a baby's low cry!
    And the star rains its fire while the Beautiful sing.
    For the manger of Bethlehem cradles a King.

    There's a tumult of joy
    O'er the wonderful birth.
    For the Virgin's sweet boy
    Is the Lord of the earth.
    Ay, the star rains its fire and the Beautiful sing,
    For the manger of Bethlehem cradles a King.

    In the light of that star
    Lie the ages impearled;
    And that song from afar
    Has swept over the world.
    Every heart is aflame and the Beautiful sing
    In the homes of the nations, that Jesus is King.

    We rejoice in the light,
    And we echo the song
    That comes down through the night
    From the heavenly throng.
    Ay, we shout to the lovely evangel they bring,
    And we greet in His cradle our Saviour and King.



  15. A Christmas Hymn
    Poet: Alfred Domett

    It was the calm and silent night!
    Seven hundred years and fifty-three
    Had Rome been growing up to-night.
    And now was Queen of land and sea!
    No sound was heard of clashing wars.
    Peace brooded o'er the hushed domain;
    Apollo, Pallas, Jove and Mars
    Held undisturbed their ancient reign,
    In the solemn midnight,
    Centuries ago!

    'Twas in the calm and silent night!
    The senator of haughty Rome
    Impatient urged his chariot's flight,
    From lordly revel rolling home.
    Triumphal arches, gleaming, swell
    His breast with thoughts of boundless sway;
    What recked the Roman what befell
    A paltry province far away, -
    In the solemn midnight,
    Centuries ago!

    Within that province far away
    Went plodding home a weary boor;
    A streak of light before him lay.
    Fallen through a half-shut stable door
    Across his path. He paused, for naught
    Told what was going on within;
    How keen the stars, his only thought;
    The air how calm, and cold, and thin, -
    In the solemn midnight.
    Centuries ago!

    O strange indifference! - Low and high
    Drowsed over common joys and cares;
    The earth was still, but knew not why;
    The world was listening, - unawares!
    How calm a moment may precede
    One that shall thrill the world forever!
    To that still moment none could heed,
    Man's doom was linked, no more to sever,-
    In the solemn midnight,
    Centuries ago!

    It is the calm and silent night!
    A thousand bells ring out, and throw
    Their joyous peals abroad, and smite
    The darkness, charmed and holy now!
    The night that erst no name had worn,
    To it a happy name is given;
    For in that stable lay, new-bom.
    The peaceful Prince of earth and heaven,
    In the solemn midnight.
    Centuries ago!
