Track Name: O Come O Come Emmanuel
O come, O come, Emmanuel and ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here until the Son of God appear
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, Thou Day-Spring, come and cheer
our spirits by Thine advent here
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night
and death’s dark shadows put to flight.

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.
Oh, come, Desire of nations, bind in one the hearts of all mankind;
Bid Thou our sad divisions cease, and be Thyself our King of Peace.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel Shall come to you, O Israel!
Track Name: Jesus Came, the Heavens Adoring
Jesus came, the heav’ns adoring,
came with peace from realms on high;
Jesus came for man’s redemption, lowly came on earth to die.

Jesus comes again in mercy, when our hearts are bowed with care;
Jesus comes again in answer to an earnest, heartfelt prayer;
Alleluia! Alleluia! Comes to save us from despair.

Jesus comes to hearts rejoicing, bringing news of sins forgiven;
Jesus comes in sounds of gladness, leading souls redeemed to Heav’n;

Jesus comes in joy and sorrow, shares alike our hopes and fears;
Jesus comes, whate’er befalls us, glads our hearts, and dries our tears;
Alleluia! Alleluia! Now the gate of death is riv’n.

Jesus comes on clouds triumphant, when the heav’ns shall pass away;
Jesus comes again in glory; let us then our homage pay,
Alleluia! Alleluia! Till the dawn of endless day.
Track Name: 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 ass are feeding?
Good Christian, fear: for sinners here the silent Word is pleading.
Nails, spear shall pierce him through, the Cross be borne 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 the song on high! The virgin sings her lullaby.
Joy! joy! for Christ is born, the babe, the son of Mary!
Track Name: Angels We Have Heard On High
Angels we have heard on high, sweetly singing o’er the plains;
and the mountains in reply echo back their joyous strains.

Shepherds, why this jubilee? Why your joyous strains prolong?
Say, what may the tidings be which inspire your heavenly song?

Gloria in excelsis Deo!
Gloria in excelsis Deo!

Come to Bethlehem, and see him whose birth the angels sing;
come, adore on bended knee Christ the Lord, the newborn King.

See Him in a manger laid, Jesus Lord of heaven and earth;
Mary, Joseph, lend your aid, with us sing our Savior’s birth.
Track Name: In the Bleak Midwinter
In the bleak midwinter, 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 midwinter, long ago.

Our God, Heaven cannot hold Him, nor earth sustain;
Heaven and earth shall flee away when He comes to reign.
In the bleak midwinter a stable place sufficed
The Lord God incarnate, Jesus Christ.

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: Joy to the World
Joy to the world; the Lord is come;
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare him room,
And heav’n and nature sing.

Joy to the earth, the Savior reigns,
Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains,
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.

He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glories of his righteousness,
And wonders of his love.
Track Name: Come Thou Long Expected Jesus
Come, Thou long expected Jesus, born to set Thy people free;
From our fears and sins release us, let us find our rest in Thee.
Israel’s strength and consolation, hope of all the earth Thou art;
Dear desire of every nation, joy of every longing heart.

Born Thy people to deliver, born a child and yet a king,
Born to reign in us forever, now Thy gracious kingdom bring.
By Thine own eternal Spirit rule in all our hearts alone;
By Thine all sufficient merit, raise us to Thy glorious throne.
