Track Name: Angels We Have Heard On High
Angels we have have heard on high
Sweetly singing o’er the plains
And the mountains in reply, echoing their joyous strains

Gloria, In excelsis Deo

Shepherds, why this jubilee?
Why your joyous strains prolong?
What the gladsome tidings be
Which inspire your heavenly song?

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.

Christ by highest Heav’n adored
Christ the everlasting Lord
Pleased with us in flesh to dwell
Jesus our Emmanuel
Hail the heaven born Prince of peace
Hail the Son of righteousness
Light and life to all He brings
Risen with healing in His wings
Mild He lays His glory by
Born that men no more may die
Born to raise the sons of earth
Born to give them second birth
Second Adam from above
Reinstate us in Thy love
Oh to all Thyself impart
Formed in each believing heart

Hark! There herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn King
Peace on earth and mercy mild
God and sinners reconciled
Joyful all ye nations rise
Join the triumph of the skies
With angelic host proclaim
Christ is born in Bethlehem
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

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 a song on high
The virgin sings her lullaby
Joy, joy for Christ is born,
The Babe, the Son of Mary

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

This, this is Christ the King
Raise, raise a song on high

Haste, haste, to bring Him laud
The Babe, the Son of Mary
Hail, hail the Word made flesh
The Babe, the Son of Mary
Joy, joy for Christ is born,
The Babe, the Son of Mary
Raise, raise a song on high
The virgin sings her lullaby
Track Name: O Holy Night
O holy night, the stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear Savior’s birth
Long lay the world, in sin and error pining
’Till He appeared and the soul felt it’s 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 divine, o night, o night divine

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, o praise His name forever
His power and glory evermore proclaim
His power and glory evermore proclaim
