Light Up The Lane

Sunday December 1st 2019 at 4.00pm

Sunday December 1st Light Up The Lane, in Pitshanger Lane

We will be singing at this festival at 4.00pm. We usually sing for between ten and fifteen minutes. I will give you more details about our singing slot and where we will assemble on the day before over the next few weeks.

I am attaching details about how to reply to this invitation, plus the song words of our Light up the Lane songs for your child to start learning. Backing tracks to help children practise are below.

This is an outdoor event and children can wear their own clothes and even add some Christmas sparkle if they so wish. However, I do advise them to dress appropriately for the weather. All members of the choir are welcome to sing at this event.

Light Up The Lane

Lyrics

Hark to the bells, high sounding bells,
Joyful they sing, ‘Born is the King!’
Oh how they chime, sound with a rhyme,
Be of good cheer, Christmas is here!

Singing their song, ding, ding-a dong!
This is the day; come, come away!
Now everywhere, all through the air;
Ring, silver bells, sing silver bells!

Hear how they pound, hear how they sound!
Telling the tale o’er hill and vale:
Come, one and all, answer the call!
Come, come and sing, ‘Born is the King!’

Join the joyous Christmas celebration!
Join the folks of every nation!
Endless the song lives on and on:
‘Born is the King! Born is the King!’

Hark to the bells, high sounding bells,
Good news they bring! Let the heavens ring!
Born is the King!’

Lyrics

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, Oh, hear the angels’ voices!
O night divine, O night when Christ was born!
O night divine! O night divine!

V2
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,
Now came the wise men from Orient land.

The King of kings lay thus in lowly manger,
In all our trials born to be our Friend;
He knows our need,
Our weakness is no stranger.
Behold your King, before Him lowly bend!
Behold your King, before Him lowly bend!

Lyrics

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, 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 goodnight, 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 good -bying,
But as long as you love me so, Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

Lyrics

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 today,
And we may live for evermore, because of Christmas Day.
Trumpets sound and angels sing, listen to what they say.
And we may live for evermore, because of Christmas Day.

While shepherds watch their flocks by night
they see a bright new shining star,
they hear a choir sing, the music seemed to come from afar.

Now Joseph and his wife, Mary, came to Bethlehem that night,
She had no place to bear her child, not a single room was in sight.

Hark, now hear the angels sing, a new king born today,
And we may live for evermore, because of Christmas Day.
Trumpets sound and angels sing, listen to what they say.
And we may live for evermore, because of Christmas Day.

By and by they found 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 sing, a king was born today
And we may live for evermore, because of Christmas Day.
Trumpets sound and angels sing,
Listen to what they say
And we may live for evermore, because of Christmas Day.
Because of Christmas Day.

Lyrics

Light the candles round the world, pray the light will never cease.
‘Til the nations of the world take each other’s hands in peace.
Light the path and show the way, every boy and every girl.
Make the light as bright as day; light the candles round the world.

Make each flame a loving heart, mother, father, daughter, son.
All it takes is one to start for the world to be as one.
Light the candles round the world pray the light will never cease
‘Til the nations of the world take each other’s hands in peace.
So, I tell you this: when you see the light appear
It will drive away the dark and there’ll be nothing left to fear.

Lyrics

Feliz Navidad, Feliz Navidad,
Feliz Navidad, prospero año y felicidad.

Feliz Navidad, Feliz Navidad,
Feliz Navidad, prospero año y felicidad.

I want to wish you a merry Christmas.
I want to wish you a merry Christmas.
I want to wish you a merry Christmas from the bottom of my heart.
