C                 F                   C
O holy night, the stars are brightly shining
                       G              C
It is the night of our dear Saviour's birth
C                     F              C
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
         Em             B             Em
Til He appeared and the soul felt its worth
  G                  C
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices
   G                C
For yonder breaks, a new and glorious morn
Am            Em       Dm             Am
Fall on your knees, oh hear the angel voices
  C  G    C  F
O night divine
  C    G                C
O night when Christ was born
 G         C F      C    G           C
O night, divine!  O night, O night divine!

While shepherds watched their flocks by night

      C         G
While shepherds watched
      F         C
Their flocks by night
    C      D      G
All seated on the ground
    F            G         E
The angel of the Lord came down
    G     F       C
And glory shone around

"Fear not," he said,
For mighty dread
Had seized their troubled minds
"Glad tidings of great joy I bring
To you and all mankind."

"To you in David's
Town this day
Is born of David's line
The Savior who is Christ the Lord
And this shall be the sign."

"The heavenly Babe
You there shall find
To human view displayed
And meanly wrapped
In swathing bands
And in a manger laid."

Thus spake the seraph,
And forthwith
Appeared a shining throng
Of angels praising God, who thus
Addressed their joyful song

"All glory be to
God on high
And to the earth be peace;
Goodwill henceforth
From heaven to men
Begin and never cease!"

O Little Town of Bethlehem

  C              F 
O little town of Bethlehem, 
    C        G        C
How still we see thee lie; 
 C                 F 
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep 
    C      G        C 
The silent stars go by. 
    C                    E 
Yet in the dark streets shineth 
    Am          E 
The everlasting light; 
    C                  F 
The hopes and fears of all the years 
    C      G      C 
Are met in thee tonight. 

For Christ is born of Mary; 
And gathered all above, 
While mortals sleep the angels keep 
Their watch of wond'ring love. 
O morning stars together 
Proclaim the holy birth; 
And praises sing to God the King, 
And peace to men on earth.

How silent, how silently 
The wondrous gift is giv'n! 
So God imparts to human hearts 
The blessings of His heav'n. 
No ear may hear His coming, 
But in this world of sin, 
Where meek souls will receive Him still, 
The dear Christ enters in.

O holy Child of Bethlehem, 
Descend to us, we pray; 
Cast out our sin and enter in, 
Be born in us today. 
We hear the Christmas angels 
The great glad tidings tell; 
O come to us, abide with us, 
Our Lord, Emmanuel.

O come, thou Wisdom from on high,
Who ord'rest all things mightily;
To us the path of knowledge show
And teach us in her ways to go.

Who to thy tribes on Sinai's height
In ancient times didst give the law
In cloud and majesty and awe.

Thine own from Satan's tyranny;
From the depths of hell Thy people save
And give them vict'ry o'er the grave.

And open wide our heavenly home;
Make safe the way that leads on high,
And close the path to misery.

O come, thou Dayspring, come and cheer
Our spitis by thine advent here;
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
And death's dark shadows put to flight.
(chorus)

O come, Desire of nations, bind
All peoples in one heart and mind;
Bid Thou our sad divisions cease,
And be Thyself our King of Peace.

D                A         D
Angels, from the realms of glory,
D                     A       D
Wing your flight o'er all the earth;
D               A       D
Ye, who sang creation's story,
D            A         D
Now proclaim Messiah s birth.

CHORUS:
D      G     D        A
Come.............. and worship!

Come.............. and worship!
D                  G   A    D
Worship Christ the new-born King!

Shepherds, in the fields abiding,
Watching o'er your flocks by night,
God with man is now residing
Yonder shines the infant light.

Sages, leave your contemplations,
Brighter visions beam afar;
Seek the great Desire of nations,
Ye have seen his natal star.

All creation, join in praising
God, the Father, Spirit, Son,
Evermore your voices raising
To the eternal Three in One.

Once in Royal David’s City

G             Em
Once in royal David's city,
G       Em    D       G
stood a lowly cattle  shed,
G              Em
where a mother laid her baby
G    Em     D       G
in a manger for His bed.
C    G        D      G
Mary was that mother mild,
C     G          D      G
Jesus Christ her little child

He came down to earth from heaven
Who is God and Lord of all
And His shelter was a stable
And His cradle was a stall
With the poor and mean and lowly
Lived on earth our Savior holy

And our eyes at last shall see Him
Through His own redeeming love
For that Child so dear and gentle
Is our Lord in heaven above
And He leads His children on
To the place where He is gone
