O Come O Come Emmanuel (free) 03:32
O come, O come, Emmanuel And ransom captive Israel That mourns in lonely exile here Until the Son of God appear Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel. O come, Thou Dayspring, come and cheer Our spirits by Thine advent here And drive away the shades of night And death's dark shadows put to flight
God rest ye merry, gentlemen Let nothing you dismay Remember Christ our Savior Was born on Christmas Day To save us all from Satan's pow'r When we were gone a-stray O tidings of comfort and joy, Comfort and joy! O tidings of comfort and joy In Bethlehem, in Israel, This blessed Babe was born, And laid within a manger Upon this blessed morn The which His Mother Mar-y Did nothing take in scorn From God our heav'nly 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 Now to the Lord sing praises, All you within this place, And with true love and brotherhood Each other now embrace; And no more walk in shadow Your sins have been erased
Away in a manger, No crib for a bed, The little Lord Jesus, Lay 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 a-lowing, the baby awakes; But little Lord Jesus, no crying he makes I love thee, Lord Jesus, Look down from the sky, And stay by my bedside, 'til 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
Christmas lights are shining, And I'm no longer pining for you Those jingle bells are ringing, But boy, I'm no longer singing for you And I won't even ask, Cause I really don't care anymore If you miss me at all, If you regret walking out that door So Merry Christmas, I really do not miss missing you Oh yes, it's a Merry Christmas, Now that you're no longer making me blue All the families gather, But now it don't really matter That you don't come near Cause I hear church bells ring, Such a pretty delicate thing, And it sounds a lot like freedom this year And I won't even wonder, If you're standing under the same snowfall Cause I've let you go, And just like all the snow, You were never gonna stay for long
Angels we have on heard high Sweetly singing ore the plains And the mountains in reply Echoing their joyous strains Gloria in excelsis Deo! Gloria in excelsis Deo! Shepherds why this jubilee? Why your joyous strains prolong? What the gladsome tidings be? Which inspire your heavenly song? Key Change! Come to Bethlehem and see Him whose birth the angels sing; Come, adore on bended knee, Christ the Lord, the newborn King
Go tell it on the mountain, over the hills and everywhere; Go tell it on the mountain that Jesus Christ is born. While shepherds kept their watching o'er silent flocks by night, Behold throughout the heavens there shone a Holy Light. The shepherds feared and trembled when lo! Above the earth, Rang out the angel chorus that hailed our Savior’s birth. Down in a lowly manger the humble Christ was born And brought us God's salvation that blessed Christmas morn!
The holly and the ivy, When they are both full grown Of all the trees that are in the wood The holly wears the crown The rising of the sun And the running of the deer The playing of the merry organ Sweet singing of the choir 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
