JOY TO THE WORLD

Joy to the world, the Lord is come!
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare him room,
And heaven and nature sing,
And heaven and nature sing,
And heaven, and heaven, and nature sing.

Joy to the world, the Saviour reigns!
Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods,
rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat, the sounding joy.

No more let sins and sorrows grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground;
He comes to make his blessings flow
Far as the curse is found,
Far as the curse is found,
Far as, far as, the curse is found.

He rules the world
with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glories of his righteousness,
And wonders of his love,
And wonders of his love,
And wonders, wonders, of his love.

O COME ALL YE FAITHFUL

O come, all ye faithful,
Joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem.
Come and behold him,
Born the King of Angels;

O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.

Sing, choirs of angels,
Sing in exultation,
Sing all ye citizens of heaven above
Glory to God, in the Highest;

O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.

Yea Lord, we greet Thee,
Born this happy morning,
Jesus to Thee be glory given
Word of the Father,
now in flesh appearing;

O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
O come, let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.

WHO’S THE KING OF THE JUNGLE

Who’s the king of the jungle? Who? who?
Who’s the king of the sea? Bubble, bubble, bubble,
Who’s the king of the universe?
and who’s the king of me?

I’ll tell you: J-E-S-U-S! YES!!,
he’s the king for me;
he’s the king of the universe,
the jungle and the sea.

He’s the king of the jungle? Who? who?
He’s the king of the sea? Bubble, bubble, bubble,
He’s the king of the universe,
and He’s the king of me!

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 Saviour is born
Christ, the Saviour is born.

Silent night, holy night
Son of God, love’s pure light
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus, Lord at Thy birth
Jesus, Lord at Thy birth.

HARK! THE HERALD ANGELS SING

Hark! The herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn king
Peace on earth and mercy mild
God and sinners reconciled
Joyful, all you nations rise
Join the triumph of the skies
With the angelic host proclaim
“Christ is born in Bethlehem”
Hark! The herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn king!

Christ, by highest heaven adored
Christ, the everlasting Lord
Late in time behold him come
Offspring of a virgin’s womb
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see
Hail the incarnate deity
Pleased as man with man to dwell
Jesus our Emmanuel
Hark the herald angel sing
Glory to the newborn King!

Hail the heaven-born Prince of Peace!
Hail, the Son of righteousness!
Light and life to all he brings
Risen with healing in his wings
Mild he lays his glory by
Born that man no more may die
Born to raise the sons of earth
Born to give them second birth
Hark the herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn King!

JESUS SAVES! JESUS SAVES!

The world belongs to God
He spoke and there it was
Though it was very good
It all went bad because
The man that God had made
And the woman there with him
Turned their backs on God to get
A deadly taste of sin, but…

Chorus
Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
Jesus is the way
Jesus is the Saviour you can come to him today (Hey)
Jesus saves! Jesus saves!
People from their sin
You will find forgiveness
When you put your trust in him

Well, if you look around
You will see how sin has spread
Turning light to dark
And living things to dead
But God still rules the world
He always had a plan
To send his son to save us in the likeness of a man.

Chorus

Well if you come to God
You still have time you know
He will wash your sinful heart
And make it white as snow
Come taste eternal life
And death will have no sting
All who trust in Jesus are the children of the king

Chorus

AWAY IN A MANGER

Away in a manger,
No crib for his 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 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 side
‘Til morning is nigh.

Be near me, Lord Jesus
I ask you 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.

MARY’S BOY CHILD

Long time ago in Bethlehem
So the Holy Bible say
Mary’s Boy Child, Jesus Christ
Was born on Christmas Day.

Hark, now hear the angels sing
A new king born this day
And man shall live for evermore
Because of Christmas Day.
Trumpets sound and angels sing
Listen to what they say
That man will live for evermore
Because of Christmas Day.

(Men)
While shepherds watched their flocks by night
Them see a bright new shining star
Them hear a choir sing,
The music seemed to come from afar.

(Women)
Now Joseph and his wife Mary
came to Bethlehem that night.
Them found no place to born she child
not a single room was in sight.

Hark now hear the angels ……

By and by they find a little nook
In a stable all forlorn
And in a manger cold and dark
Mary’s little boy was born.

Long time ago in Bethlehem
So the Holy Bible say
Mary’s Boy Child, Jesus Christ
Was born on Christmas Day.

Hark now hear the angels ……

ANGELS FROM THE REALMS OF GLORY

Angels from the realms of glory,
Wing your flight o’er all the earth
You who sang creation’s story
Now proclaim Messiah’s birth.

Come and worship,
Christ the newborn King
Come and worship,
Christ the newborn King.

(Women)
Shepherds, in the filed abiding,
Watching o’er your flocks by night,
God with us is now residing
Yonder shine the infant light.

Come and worship …….

(Men)
Sages, leave your contemplations,
Brighter visions beam afar
Seek the great desire of nations,
You have seen his natal star.

Come and worship …….

Saints before the altar bending
Watching long in hope and fear, suddenly the Lord, descending,
In his temple shall appear.

Come and worship …….

WE THREE KINGS

We three kings of Orient are;
Bearing gifts we traverse afar
Field and fountain
Moor and mountain
Following yonder star

O star of wonder, star of night
Star with royal beauty bright,
Westward leading, still proceeding
Guide us to Thy perfect light.

Born a King on Bethlehem’s plain
Gold I bring to crown him again,
King forever, ceasing never,
Over us all to reign

O star of wonder, star of night….

(Women)
Frankincense to offer have I
Incense owns a Deity nigh,
Prayer and praising, voices raising
Worshipping God on high

O star of wonder, star of night….

(Men)
Myrrh is mine, its bitter perfume
Breathes a life of gathering gloom.
Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying,
Sealed in the stone cold tomb.

O star of wonder, star of night….

Glorious now behold him arise,
King and God and sacrifice,
Alleluia, Alleluia
Earth to the heavens replies.

O star of wonder, star of night….

WHAT CHILD IS THIS

What child is this, who, laid to rest,
On Mary’s lap is sleeping?
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet,
While shepherds watch are keeping?
This, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing:
Haste, haste to bring Him laud,
The babe, the son of Mary.

Why lies He in such mean estate,
Where ox and donkeys are feeding?
Good Christians, fear, for sinners here
The silent Word is pleading.
Nails, spears shall pierce him through,
the cross he bore for me, for you.
Hail, hail the Word made flesh,
the Babe, the Son of Mary.

So bring him incense, gold, and myrrh,
Come, peasant, king, to own him.
The King of kings salvation brings,
Let loving hearts enthrone him.
Raise, raise a song on high,
The virgin sings her lullaby
Joy, joy for Christ is born,
The babe, the Son of Mary.

O HOLY NIGHT

O holy night, the stars are brightly shining;
It is the night of the dear Saviour’s birth!
Long lay the world in sin and error pining,
Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.

Fall on your knees,
O hear the angel voices!
O night divine,
O night when Christ was born!
O night divine, O night when Christ was born.

Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,
With glowing hearts by his cradle we stand.
So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming,
Here came the wise men from Orient land.
The King of kings lay in a lowly manger,
In all our trials born to be our friend!

Fall on your knees, ………………

Truly he taught us to love one another;
His word is truth and His Gospel is peace.
God’s gift to man salvation freely bringing
And in His Name we have vic’try o’er sin.
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
Let all within us praise His holy Name!

Fall on your knees, ………………
