Track Name: Watchman, Tell us Of The Night (Aberystwyth)
Watchman, tell us of the night,
What its signs of promise are.
Traveler, o'er yon mountain's height,
See that glory beaming star.
Watchman, does its beauteous ray
Aught of joy or hope foretell?
Traveler, yes – it brings the day,
Promised day of Israel.

Watchman, tell us of the night;
Higher yet that star ascends.
Traveler, blessedness and light,
Peace and truth its course portends.
Watchman, will its beams alone
Gild the spot that gave them birth?
Traveler, ages are its own;
See, it bursts o'er all the earth.

Watchman, tell us of the night,
For the morning seems to dawn.
Traveler, darkness takes its flight,
Doubt and terror are withdrawn.
Watchman, let thy wanderings cease;
Hie thee to thy quiet home.
Traveler, lo! the Prince of Peace,
Lo! the Son of God is come!
Track Name: Adeste Fidelis
Hither, ye faithful, haste with songs of triumph;
To Bethlehem haste, the Lord of life to meet:
To you this day is born a Prince and Saviour --
O come and let us worship at his feet.

O Jesus! for such wond'rous condescension
Our thanks and praise are an offering meet;
Now is the word made flesh, and dwells among us,
O come and let us worship at his feet.

Shout his Almighty name, ye choirs of angels,
Let the celestial courts his praise repeat:
Unto our God be glory in the highest;
O come and let us worship at his feet.
Track Name: Away in a Manger
A-way in a man-ger, No crib for his bed,
The lit-tle Lord Je-sus Laid down his sweet head,
The stars in the sky Looked down where he lay,
The lit-tle Lord Je-sus, A-sleep in the hay.
2.
The cat-tle are low-ing, The poor b-by wakes,
But lit-tle Lord Je-sus, No crying he makes.
I love thee, Lord Je-sus, Look down from the sky,
And stay by my side Un-til morn-ing is nigh.
Track Name: O Little Town of Betlehem
O lit-tle town of Beth-le-hem,
How still we see thee lie !
A-bove thy deep and dream-less sleep
The si-lent stars go by;
Yet in thy dark streets shin-eth,
The ev-er-last-ing Light;
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee to-night.
2.
For Christ is born of Ma-ry
And gath-ered all above
While mor - tals sleep, the an - gels keep
Their watch of won-dering love.
O morn -ing stars, to - geth- er,
Pro - claim the ho - ly birth,
And prais-es sing to God the King,
And peace _to men on earth!
3.
How si-lently, how si-lently
The Won-dorus gift is given!
So God im-parts to hu-man hearts
The bless-ings of his heaven.
No ear may hear his com ing,
But in this world of sin,
Where meek souls will re-ceive him, stil
The dear Christ en-ters in.
4.
O ho-ly Child of Beth-le-hem,
De-scend to us, we pray;
Cast out our sin, and en - ter in;
Be born in us to-day.
We hear the Christ-mas an - gels
The great glad ti-dings tell;
O come to us, a-bide with us,
Our Lord Em-man-u-el !
Track Name: Coventry Carol
Lully, Lulla, thou little tiny child,
Byby, lully lullay.

O sisters too,
How may we do
For to preserve this day
This poor youngling,
For whom we do sing,
Byby, lully lullay?

Lully, Lulla, thou little tiny child,
Byby, 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.

Lully, Lulla, thou little tiny child,
Byby, lully lullay.

That woe is me,
Poor child for thee!
And ever mourn and day,
For thy parting
Neither say nor sing
Byby, lully lullay!

Lully, Lulla, thou little tiny child,
Byby, lully lullay.
Track Name: Deck The Halls
Deck the hall with boughs of holly,
Fa la la la la la la la la.
'Tis the season to be jolly,
Fa la la la la la la la la.
Fill the meadcup, drain the barrel,
Fa la la la la la la la la.
Troul the ancient Christmas carol,
Fa la la la la la la la la.

See the flowing bowl before us,
Fa la la la la la la la la.
Strike the harp and join the chorus.
Fa la la la la la la la la.
Follow me in merry measure,
Fa la la la la la la la la.
While I sing of beauty's treasure,
Fa la la la la la la la la.

Fast away the old year passes,
Fa la la la la la la la la.
Hail the new, ye lads and lasses!
Fa la la la la la la la la.
Laughing, quaffing all together,
Fa la la la la la la la la.
Heedless of the wind and weather,
Fa la la la la la la la la.
Track Name: The First Noël
1. The first Noël 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:

Noël, Noël, Noël, Noël,
Born is the King of Israel.

2. They lookèd 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:

3. 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 whersoever it went:

4. This star drew nigh to the north-west;
O'er Bethlehem it took its rest;
And there it did both stop and stay
Right over the place where Jesus lay:

5. Then entered in those Wise Men three,
Fell reverently upon their knee,
And offered there in his presence,
Their gold and myrrh and frankincense:

6. Then let us all with one accord
Sing praises to our heavenly Lord
That hath made heaven and earth of nought,
And with his blood mankind hath bought:
Track Name: God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
1. God rest you merry, gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
Remember, Christ, our Saviour
Was born on Christmas day
To save us all from Satan's power
When we were gone astray
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

2. In Bethlehem, in Israel,
This blessed Babe was born
And laid within a manger
Upon this blessed morn
The which His Mother Mary
Did nothing take in scorn
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

3. From God our Heavenly Father
A blessed Angel came;
And unto certain Shepherds
Brought tidings of the same:
How that in Bethlehem was born
The Son of God by Name.
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

4. "Fear not then," said the Angel,
"Let nothing you affright,
This day is born a Saviour
Of a pure Virgin bright,
To free all those who trust in Him
From Satan's power and might."
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

5. The shepherds at those tidings
Rejoiced much in mind,
And left their flocks a-feeding
In tempest, storm and wind:
And went to Bethlehem straightway
The Son of God to find.
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

6. And when they came to Bethlehem
Where our dear Saviour lay,
They found Him in a manger,
Where oxen feed on hay;
His Mother Mary kneeling down,
Unto the Lord did pray.
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

7. Now to the Lord sing praises,
All you within this place,
And with true love and brotherhood
Each other now embrace;
This holy tide of Christmas
All other doth deface.
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy
Track Name: Good King Wenceslas (Tempus Adest Floridum)
1.Good King Wenceslas look'd out,
On the Feast of Stephen;
When the snow lay round about,
Deep, and crisp, and even:
Brightly shone the moon that night,
Though the frost was cruel,
When a poor man came in sight,
Gath'ring winter fuel.

2."Hither, page, and stand by me,
If thou know'st, telling,
"Yonder peasant who is he?
Where and what his dwelling?"
"Sire, he lives a good league hence,
Underneath the mountain;
"Right against the forest fence,
By Saint Agnes' fountain."

3."Bring me flesh, and bring me wine,
Bring me pine logs hither:
"Thou and I will see him dine,
When we bear them thither,"
Page and monarch forth they went,
Forth they went together:
Through the rude wind's wild lament
And the bitter weather.

4."Sire, the night is darker now,
And the wind blows stronger;
"Fails my heart I know not how;
I can go no longer.'
"Mark my footsteps, good my page;
Tread thou in them boldly:
"Thou shalt find the winter's rage
Freeze thy blood less coldly."

5.In his master's steps he trod,
Where the snow lay dinted;
Heat was in the very sod
Which the Saint had printed.
Therefore, Christian men, be sure,
Wealth or rank possessing,
Ye who now will bless the poor,
Shall yourselves find blessing.
Track Name: Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
Hark how all the welkin rings,
“Glory to the King of kings,
Peace on earth, and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled!”

Joyful, all ye nations, rise,
Join the triumph of the skies;
Universal Nature, say,
“Christ the Lord is born to-day!”

Christ, by highest heaven adored,
Christ, the everlasting Lord,
Late in time behold Him come,
Offspring of a virgin’s womb.

Veil’d in flesh, the Godhead see,
Hail the Incarnate Deity!
Pleased as man with men to appear
Jesus, our Immanuel here!

Hail the heavenly Prince of Peace!
Hail the Sun 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.

Come, Desire of Nations, come,
Fix in us Thy humble home;
Rise, the woman’s conquering Seed,
Bruise in us the serpent’s head.

Now display Thy saving power,
Ruin’d nature now restore;
Now in mystic union join
Thine to ours, and ours to Thine.

Adam’s likeness, Lord, efface,
Stamp Thy image in its place;
Second Adam from above,
Reinstate us in Thy love.

Let us Thee, though lost, regain,
Thee, the Life, the Inner Man:
O to all Thyself impart,
Form’d in each believing heart.
Track Name: I Saw Three Ships
I saw three ships come sailing in
On Christmas day, on Christmas day;
I saw three ships come sailing in
On Christmas day in the morning.

And what was in those ships all three,
On Christmas day, on Christmas day?
And what was in those ships all three,
On Christmas day in the morning?

Our Savior Christ and His lady,
On Christmas day, on Christmas day;
Our Savior Christ and His lady,
On Christmas day in the morning.

Pray whither sailed those ships all three,
On Christmas day, on Christmas day?
Pray whither sailed those ships all three,
On Christmas day in the morning?

O they sailed into Bethlehem,
On Christmas day, on Christmas day,
O they sailed into Bethlehem,
On Christmas day in the morning.

And all the bells on Earth shall ring,
On Christmas day, on Christmas day;
And all the bells on Earth shall ring,
On Christmas day in the morning.

And all the angels in Heav’n shall sing,
On Christmas day, on Christmas day;
And all the angels in Heav’n shall sing,
On Christmas day in the morning.

And all the souls on Earth shall sing,
On Christmas day, on Christmas day;
And all the souls on Earth shall sing,
On Christmas day in the morning.

Then let us all rejoice amain,
On Christmas day, on Christmas day;
Then let us rejoice amain,
On Christmas day in the morning.
Track Name: In The Bleak Midwinter
1. In the bleak mid-winter
Frosty wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron,
Water like a stone;
Snow had fallen, snow on snow,
Snow on snow,
In the bleak mid-winter
Long ago.

2. Our God, Heaven cannot hold Him
Nor earth sustain;
Heaven and earth shall flee away
When He comes to reign:
In the bleak mid-winter
A stable-place sufficed
The Lord God Almighty,
Jesus Christ.

3. Enough for Him, whom cherubim
Worship night and day,
A breastful of milk
And a mangerful of hay;
Enough for Him, whom angels
Fall down before,
The ox and ass and camel
Which adore.

4. Angels and archangels
May have gathered there,
Cherubim and seraphim
Thronged the air;
But only His mother
In her maiden bliss,
Worshipped the Beloved
With a kiss.

5. What can I give Him,
Poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd
I would bring a lamb,
If I were a wise man
I would do my part,
Yet what I can I give Him,
Give my heart.
Track Name: Jolly Old Saint Nicholas
Jolly old St. Nicholas,
Lean your ear this way.
Don't you tell a single soul
What I'm going to say.
Christmas Eve is coming soon.
Now, you dear old man,
Whisper what you'll bring to me.
Tell me if you can.

Lean your ear this way;
Don't you tell a single soul
What I'm going to say,
Christmas Eve is coming soon;
Now now dear old man,
Whisper what you'll bring to me;
Tell me if you can.
When the clock is striking twelve,
When I'm fast asleep,
Down the chimney broad and black
With your pack you'll creep;
All the stockings you will find
Hanging in a row;
Mine will be the shortest one;
You'll be sure to know.
Johnny wants a pair of skates;
Susy wants a dolly
Nellie wants a story book,
She thinks dolls are folly
As for me, my little brain
Isn't very bright;
Choose for me, dear Santa Claus,
What you think is right.
Track Name: Joy to The World
1.
Joy to the world! the lord is come;
Let earth re-civer her King
Let ev-ery heart pre-pare him room,
And heaven and na-ture sing,
And heaven and na-ture sing,
And heaven and na-ture sing.
2.
Joy to the world! the Sav-iour reigns;
Let men their songs em-ploy
While fields and floods,
rocks, hills and plains
Re-pear the sound-ing joy,
Repeat the sound-ing joy,
Re-peat the sound-ing joy.
3.
He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glo-ries of his right-eous-ness,
And won-ders of his love,
And won-ders of his love
And won-ders of his love
Track Name: Oh 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, Oh hear the angel voices!
O night divine! O night when Christ was born.
O night, O holy night, O night divine.

2.

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;

He knows our need, To our weakness no stranger!
Behold your King! Before Him lowly bend!
Behold your King! your King! before him bend!

3.

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!

Christ is the Lord, then ever! ever praise we!
His pow'r and glory, evermore proclaim!
His pow'r and glory, evermore proclaim!
Track Name: Up On The House Top
Up on the housetop reindeer paws,
Out jumps Good Old Santa Claus
Down through the chimney with lots of toys
All for the little ones Christmas joys

1.
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,
2.
Silent night, holy night,
Darkness, flies and all is light;
Shepherds hear the angels sing:
'Alleluia! hail the King!
Jesus the Saviour is here,
Jesus the Saviour is here.'
3.
Holy night, peaceful night,
Child of heaven, O how bright
Thou didst smile when thou wast born;
Blessed was that happy morn,
Full of heavenly joy,
Full of heavenly joy.
4.
Silent night, holy night,
Guiding Star, O lend thy light;
See the eastern wise men bring
Gifts and homage to our King!
Jesus the Saviour is here,
Jesus the Saviour is here.
5.

Wondrous Star, O lend thy light!
With the angels let us sing
Alleluia to our King!
Jesus our Saviour is here,
Jesus our Saviour is here.
Track Name: Here We Come A-wassailing
Here we come a-wassailing
Among the leaves so green
Here we come a-wand'rin
So fair to be seen.

CHORUS

Love and joy come to you,
And to you your wassail too;
And God bless you and send you
A Happy New Year
And God send you a Happy New Year

Our wassail cup is made
Of the rosemary tree,
And so is our beer
Of the best barley:

CHORUS

We are not daily begga
That beg from door to door
But we are neighbours' children,
Whom you have seen before.

CHORUS

Good master and good mistress,
While you're sitting by the fire
Pray think of us poor children
Who wander in the mire.

CHORUS

God bless the master of this house
Likewise the mistress too!
And all the little children
That 'round the table go.

CHORUS
Track Name: Toyland
Toy land, toy land
Li-ittle girl and boy land
While you dwell within it
You are ever happy there
Childhood's joy land
Mi-istic merry toy land
Once you pass its borders
You can ne'er return again
When you've grown up my dears
And are as old as I
You'll laugh and ponder on the years
That roll so swiftly by my dears
That roll so swi-iftly by-y
Childhood's joy land
Mi-istic merry toy land
Once you pass its borders
You can ne'er return again
Track Name: Un Flambeau Jeanette, Isabelle
Un flambeau, Jeanette, Isabelle --
Un flambeau! Courons au berceau!
C'est Jésus, bonnes gens du hameau.
Le Christ est né; Marie appelle!
Ah! Ah! Que la Mère est belle,
Ah! Ah! Que l'Enfant est beau!
Qui vient là, frappant de la porte?
Qui vient là, en frappant comme ça?
Ouvrez-donc, j'ai posé sur un plat
Des bons gateaux, qu'ici j'apporte
Toc! Toc! Ouvrons-nous la porte!
Toc! Toc! Faisons grand gala!
C'est un tort, quand l'Enfant sommeille,
C'est un tort de crier si fort.
Taisez-vous, l'un et l'autre, d'abord!
Au moindre bruit, Jésus s'éveille.
Chut! chut! Il dort à merveille,
Chut! chut! Voyez comme il dort!
Doucement, dans l'étable close,
Doucement, venez un moment!
Approchez! Que Jésus est charmant!
Comme il est blanc! Comme il est rose!
Do! Do! Que l'Enfant repose!
Do! Do! Qu'il rit en dormant!
