Little Drummer Boy Come they told me, pa rum pum pum pum A new born king to see, pa rum pum pum pum Our finest gifts we bring, pa rum pum pum pum To lay before the king, pa rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum, rum pum pum pum, So to honor him, pa rum pum pum pum, when we come.

While shepherds kept their watching Over silent flocks by night Behold throughout the heavens There shone a holy light. (refrain) The shepherds feared and trembled, When lo! above the earth, Rang out the angels chorus That hailed the Savior’s birth. (refrain) Down in a lowly manger The humble Christ was born And God sent us salvation That blessèd Christmas morn. (refrain) O Holy Night Oh 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 appear’d 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 angel voices oh night divine oh night when Christ was born oh night divine (x2) 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 come the wise men from orient land The king of kings lay thus in lowly manger in all our trials born to be our friend. Truly he taught us to love one another his law is love and his gospel is peace chains shall he break for the slave is our brother and in his name all oppression shall cease sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we, let all within us praise his holy name. All I Want for Christmas I don’t want a lot for Christmas There’s just one thing I need I don’t care about presents Underneath the Christmas tree I just want you for my own More than you could ever know Make my wish come true... All I want for Christmas Is you... I don’t want a lot for Christmas There is just one thing I need I don’t care about presents Underneath the Christmas tree I don’t need to hang my stocking There upon the fireplace Santa Claus won’t make me happy With a toy on Christmas day I just want you for my own More than you could ever know Make my wish come true All I want for Christmas is you... You baby I won’t ask for much this Christmas I won’t even wish for snow I’m just gonna keep on waiting Underneath the mistletoe I won’t make a list and send it To the North Pole for Saint Nick I won’t even stay awake to Hear those magic reindeer click ‘Cause I just want you here tonight Holding on to me so tight What more can I do Baby all I want for Christmas is you You... All the lights are shining So brightly everywhere And the sound of children’s Laughter fills the air And everyone is singing I hear those sleigh bells ringing Santa won’t you bring me the one I really need won’t you please bring my baby to me... Oh I don’t want a lot for Christmas This is all I’m asking for I just want to see baby Standing right outside my door Oh I just want him for my own More than you could ever know Make my wish come true Baby all I want for Christmas is You... All I want for Christmas is you baby... (repeat) Australian Youth Choir 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 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 cradle till 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 fit us for Heaven to live with Thee there. Angels We Have Heard on High Angels we have heard on high, Sweetly singing o’er the plains. And the mountains in reply, Echoing their joyous strains Gloria in excelsis Deo! Gloria in excelsis Deo! Come to Bethlehem and see Him whose birth the angels sing. Come adore on bended knee, Come adore the newborn King. Gloria in excelsis Deo! Gloria in excelsis Deo! The First Noel The First Noel, the Angels did say Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay In fields where they lay keeping their sheep On a cold winter’s night that was so deep. Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel Born is the King of Israel! They looked up and saw a star Shining in the East beyond them far And to the earth it gave great light And so it continued both day and night. Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel Born is the King of Israel! And by the light of that same star Three Wise men came from country far To seek for a King was their intent And to follow the star wherever it went. Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel Born is the King of Israel! Carols by Candlelight Program
