  1. Away in a Manger

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed, The little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head.

The stars in the sky looked down where he lay, The little Lord Jesus asleep in the hay.

The cattle are 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 cradle ’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 take us to heaven, to live with Thee there.

  1. Let it Snow

Oh the weather outside is frightful But the fire is so delightful

And since we’ve no place to go Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

It doesn’t show signs of stopping And I’ve bought some corn for popping

The lights are turned way down low Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

When we finally kiss good night How I’ll hate going out in the storm!

But if you’ll really hold me tight All the way home I’ll be warm

The fire is slowly dying And, my dear, we’re still goodbying

But as long as you love me so Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

  1. Silent Night

Silent night, holy night! All is calm, all is bright.

Round yon Virgin, Mother and Child. Holy infant so tender and mild,

Sleep in heavenly peace, Sleep in heavenly peace. Silent night, holy night!

Shepherds quake at the sight. 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

  1. Coventry Carol

Lully, lullay, thou little tiny child, Bye bye, lully, lullay.

Lully, lullay, thou little tiny child, Bye bye, lully, lullay.

O sisters too, how may we do For to preserve this day

This poor youngling for whom we sing, “Bye bye, lully, lullay”?

Herod the king, in his raging, Charged he hath this day

His men of might in his own sight All young children to slay.

That woe is me, poor child, for thee And ever mourn and may

For thy parting neither say nor sing, “Bye bye, lully, lullay.”

  1. Do You Hear What I Hear?

Said the night wind to the little lamb, do you see what I see

Way up in the sky, little lamb, do you see what I see

A star, a star, dancing in the night, With a tail as big as a kite

With a tail as big as a kite, Said the little lamb to the shepherd boy,

do you hear what I hear! Ringing through the sky, shepherd boy,

do you hear what I hear A song, a song, high above the trees

With a voice as big as the sea With a voice as big as the sea

Said the shepherd boy to the mighty king, do you know what I know

In your palace warm, mighty king, do you know what I know

A Child, a Child shivers in the cold Let us bring Him silver and gold

Let us bring Him silver and gold Said the king to the people everywhere,

listen to what I say Pray for peace, people everywhere! listen to what I say

The Child, the Child, sleeping in the night!

He will bring us goodness and light! He will bring us goodness and light!

  1. Jingle Bell Rock

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock! Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring

Snowing and blowing up bushels of fun, Now the jingle hop has begun

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock, Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time

Dancing and prancing in Jingle Bell Square In the frosty air.

What a bright time, it’s the right time! To rock the night away

Jingle bell time is a swell time, To go gliding in a one-horse sleigh

Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet, Jingle around the clock

Mix and a-mingle in the jingling feet! That’s the jingle bell,

That’s the jingle bell, That’s the jingle bell rock

  1. A Holly Jolly Christmas

Have a holly, jolly Christmas; It’s the best time of the year

I don’t know if there’ll be snow but have a cup of cheer

Have a holly, jolly Christmas; And when you walk down the street

Say Hello to friends you know and everyone you meet! Oh ho

the mistletoe hung where you can see; Somebody waits for you;

Kiss her once for me! Have a holly jolly Christmas

and in case you didn’t hear! Oh by golly, have a holly

jolly Christmas this year!

  1. I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus

Underneath the mistletoe last night.

She didn’t see me creep

down the stairs to have a peep;

She thought that I was tucked

up in my bedroom fast asleep.

Then, I saw Mommy tickle Santa Claus

Underneath his beard so snowy white;

Oh, what a laugh it would have been

If Daddy had only seen

Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night

Then I saw Mommy tickle Santa Claus

Underneath his beard so snowy white

Oh, what a laugh it would have been

If Daddy had only seen

Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night

Oh, what a laugh it would have been

If Daddy had only seen

Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night

( I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus)

  1. 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 the 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.

  1. I’ll Be Home for Christmas

I’ll be home for Christmas, You can plan on me

Please have snow and mistletoe

And presents on the tree

Christmas Eve will find me

Where the love light gleams

I’ll be home for Christmas

If only in my dreams

I’ll be home for Christmas

You can plan on me

Please have snow and mistletoe

And presents on the tree

Christmas Eve will find me

Where the love light gleams

I’ll be home for Christmas

If only in my dreams

If only in my dreams
