Lyrics

-1-
We three kings of Orient are
Bearing gifts we traverse afar
Field and fountain moor and mountain
Following yonder star

Chorus O__ star of wonder star of night
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading still proceeding
Guide us to thy perfect light.

-2-
Born a king on Bethlehem plain
Gold I bring to crown him again
King for ever ceasing never
Over us all to reign.

Chorus O__ star of wonder star of night
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading still proceeding
Guide us to thy perfect light.

-3-
Frankincense to offer have I
Incense owns a deity nigh
Prayer and praising all men raising
Worship him God most high.

Chorus O__ star of wonder star of night
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading still proceeding
Guide us to thy perfect light.

-4-
Myrrh is mine its bitter perfume
Breathes a life of gathering gloom
Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying
Sealed in a stone cold tomb.

Chorus O__ star of wonder star of night
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading still proceeding
Guide us to thy perfect light.

-5-
Glorious now behold him arise
King and God and sacrifice
Heaven sings ‘Alleluya’
‘Alleluya’ the earth replies.

Chorus O__ star of wonder star of night
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading still proceeding
Guide us to thy perfect light.

Lyrics

-1-
Away in a manger
No crib for a 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 in the hay.

-2-
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 be my side
Until – morning is nigh.

-3-
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 your tender care
And fit us for heaven
To live with you there.

Lyrics

1. Midnight – there’s the strangest feeling in the air tonight,
There’s something going on but I can’t make it out,
I wonder what it’s all about?

2. Starlight – breaking through the darkness in the dead of night,
Illuminates the path that takes you out of sight,
And all the way to Bethlehem.

Chorus
Tonight’s events were planned in heaven,
The greatest story ever penned.
Heaven and earth have come together,
And life has come to Bethlehem.

3. Angels – taking care of things that only they can do,
Are waiting in the wings to bring the joyful news,
It’s going to turn the world around.

4. Strangers – having made arrangements for a night or two,
Have found accomodation in the crowded rooms.
The house is packed in Bethlehem.

Chorus
Tonight’s events were planned in heaven,
The greatest story ever penned.
Heaven and earth have come together,
And life has come to Bethlehem.

5. Shepherds – minding their own business looking after things,
Are startled by an unexpected happening,
As angel choirs appear to them.

6. Wise men – taking charts and telescopes and compasses,
Investigate the star that takes them travelling,
Until they come to Bethlehem.

Chorus
Tonight’s events were planned in heaven,
The greatest story ever penned.
Heaven and earth have come together,
And life has come to Bethlehem.

Tonight’s events were planned in heaven,
The greatest story ever penned.
Heaven and earth have come together,
And life has come to Bethlehem.
And life has come to Bethlehem.

Lyrics

1. Twas in the moon of wintertime,
When all the birds had fled.
That mighty Gitchi Manitou,
Sent angel choirs instead.
Before their light the stars grew dim,
And wondering hunters heard the hymn,

Chorus
Jesus your King is born,
Jesus is born,
In excelsis gloria.

2. Within a lodge of broken bark,
The tender babe was found.
A ragged robe of rabbit skin,
Enwrapped his beauty round.
And as the hunter braves drew nigh,
The angel song rang loud and high,

Chorus
Jesus your King is born,
Jesus is born,
In excelsis gloria.

3. O children of the forest free,
O sons of Manitou.
The holy Child of earth and heaven
Is born today for you.
Come kneel before the radiant boy,
who brings you beauty peace and joy.

Chorus
Jesus your King is born,
Jesus is born,
In excelsis gloria.

Lyrics
It was on a starry night,
When the hills were bright,
Earth lay sleeping, sleeping calm and still.
Then in a cattle shed, in a manger bed,
A boy was born, king of all the world. 

Chorus
And all the angels sang for him,
The bells of heaven rang for him,
For a boy was born,
king of all the world.
-repeat-

2) Soon the shepherds came that way,
Where the baby lay,
And were kneeling, kneeling by his side.
And their hearts believed again,
For the peace of men,
For a boy was born, king of all the world.
   
Chorus
And all the angels sang for him,
The bells of heaven rang for him,
For a boy was born,
king of all the world.
-repeat-

African Crib Lyrics

Chorus Bayou,
Christe bayou,
Christe babanou,
O Christe bayou.
Sleep, little one sleep,
Sleep till the morning,
Hush now do not weep. 

-1-
See, Mary is near,
Keeping you safe; nothing shall harm you,
Fright nor alarm you,

O Christe bayou.
Chorus Bayou,
Christe bayou,
Christe babanou,
O Christe bayou.
Sleep, little one sleep,
Sleep till the morning,
Hush now do not weep.

-2-
Hush, shepherds draw near,
Wisemen shall kneel, homage to bring you,
Angels shall sing you
So softly to sleep.  

Bayou, Christe bayou…

O little town of Bethlehem Lyrics
-1-
O little town of Bethlehem
How still we see thee lie
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by
Yet in thy dark streets shineth
The everlasting light
The hope and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight.

-2-
O morning stars together
Proclaim the holy birth
And praises sing to God the King
And peace to men on earth
For Christ is born of Mary___
And gathered all above
While mortals sleep the angels keep
Their watch of wondering love.

-3-
How silently how silently
The wondrous gift is given
So God imparts to human hearts
The blessings of his heaven
No ear may hear his com_ing
But in this world of sin
Where meek souls will receive him, still
The dear Christ enters in.

-4-
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 an_gels
The great glad tidings tell
O come to us abide with us
Our Lord Emmanuel.
