Away In a Manger Lyrics

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 poor Baby wakes
But little Lord Jesus
No crying He makes

I love Thee, Lord Jesus
Look down from the sky
And stay by my side
‘Til 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 take us to Heaven
To live with Thee there

O Holy Night Lyrics

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
‘Til 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
O hear the Angels’ voices
O night divine, O night when Christ was born
O night divine
O night, O night divine

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 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 – to our weakness is no stranger
Behold your King, before Him lowly bend
Behold your King, before Him lowly bend

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

Joy To The World Lyrics

Joy to the world
The Lord is come
Let earth receive her King
Let every heart prepare Him room
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven, and heaven and nature sing

Joy to the world
The Savior reigns
Let men their songs employ
While fields and floods
Rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat, repeat the sounding joy

He rules the world
With truth and grace
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteouness
And wonders of His love
And wonders of His love
And wonders, wonders of His love

Joy To The World
Joy to the world
The Lord is come
Let earth receive her King
Let every heart prepare Him room
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven and nature sing
And heaven, and heaven and nature sing

Silent Night Lyrics

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

Silent night, Holy night
Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from Heaven afar
Heav’nly hosts sing Alleluia
Christ the Savior is born
Christ the Savior is born

Silent night, Holy night
Son of God, Love’s pure light
Radiant beams from thy Holy Face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth

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

Jingle Bells Lyrics

Dashing through the snow
In a one horse open sleigh
O’er the fields we go
Laughing all the way
Bells on bob tails ring
Making spirits bright
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
HEY!
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh

A day or two ago
I thought I’d take a ride
And soon Miss Fanny Bright
Was seated by my side
The horse was lean and lank
Misfortune seemed his lot
He got into a drifted bank
And we, we got upsot

Oh! jinlge bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
HEY!
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh

Now the ground is white
So got it while you’re young
Take the girls tonight
And sing this sleighing song
Just get a bobtailed bay
Two forty for his speed
Then hitch him to an open sleigh
And crack! you’ll take the lead

Oh! jinlge bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh
HEY!
Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In a one horse open sleigh

Jingle Bell Rock Lyrics

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring
Snowing and blowing up bushels of fun
Now the jingle hop has begun

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time
Dancing and prancing in Jingle Bell Square
In the frosty air

What a bright time, it’s the right time
To rock the night away
Jingle bell time is a swell time
To go glidin’ in a one horse sleigh

Giddy up jingle horse, pick up your feet
Jingle around the clock
Mix and a – mingle in the jingling beat
That’s the jingle bell rock

What a bright time, it’s the right time
To rock the night away
Jingle bell time is a swell time
To go glidin’ in a one horse sleigh
Giddy up jingle horse, pick up your feet
Jingle around the clock
Mix and a – mingle in the jingling beat

That’s the jingle bell
That’s the jingle bell
That’s the jingle bell
Rock

Up on the House Top Lyrics

Up on the house top reindeer pause
Out jumps good ol’ Santa Claus
Down through the chimney with lots of toys
All for the little ones’ Christmas joys

Ho ho ho, who wouldn’t go
Ho ho ho, who wouldn’t go
Up on the house top, click click click
Down through the chimney with good Saint Nick

First comes the stocking of little Nell
Oh dear Santa fill it well
Give her a dolly that laughs and cries
One that will open and shut its eyes

Ho ho ho, who wouldn’t go
Ho ho ho, who wouldn’t go
Up on the house top, click click click
Down through the chimney with good Saint Nick

Next comes the stocking of little Bill
Oh just see what a glorious fill
Here is a hammer and lots of tacks
Also a ball and a whip that cracks

Ho ho ho, who wouldn’t go
Ho ho ho, who wouldn’t go
Up on the house top, click click click
Down through the chimney with good Saint Nick

Up on the house top, click click click
Down through the chimney with good Saint Nick

Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer Lyrics

You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen
Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen
But do you recall
The most famous reindeer of all?

Rudolph the red nosed reindeer
Had a very shiny nose,
And if you ever saw it,
You would even say it glows
All of the other reindeer
Used to laugh and call him names
They never let poor Rudolph
Join in any reindeer games

Then one foggy Christmas Eve
Santa came to say,
“Rudolph with your nose so bright,
Won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?”
Then all the reindeer loved him
As they shouted out with glee
“Rudolph the red nosed reindeer
You’ll go down in history!”

Deck The Halls Lyrics

Deck the halls 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
Don we now our gay apparel
Fa la la la la, la la la la
Troll the ancient Yuletide carol
Fa la la la la, la la la la

See the blazing Yule 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 tell of yuletide 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
Sing we joyous, 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

Frosty the Snowman Lyrics

Frosty the snowman was a jolly happy soul
With a corn cob pipe and a button nose
And two eyes made out of coal

Frosty the snowman is a fairy tale, they say
He was made of snow but the children know
How he came to life one day

There must have been some magic in that old silk hat they found
For when they placed it on his head
He began to dance around!

O, Frosty the snowman
Was alive as he could be
And the children say he could laugh and play
Just the same as you and me

Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpetty thump thump,
Look at Frosty go

Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpetty thump thump,
Over the hills of snow

Frosty the snowman knew the sun was hot that day
So he said “let’s run and we’ll have some fun now, before I melt away”

Down to the village,
With a broomstick in his hand
Running here and there all around the square saying,
“Catch me if you can!”

He led them down the streets of town
Right to the traffic cop
And he only paused a moment when
He heard him holler “stop!”
For frosty the snow man
Had to hurry on his way
But he waved goodbye saying, “Don’t you cry, I’ll be back again some day.”

Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpetty thump thump,
Look at Frosty go
Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpetty thump thump,
Over the hills of snow

Little Snowflake Lyrics

Snowflake, snowflake, little snowflake,
Little snowflake
Falling from the sky
Snowflake, snowflake, little snowflake,
Falling, falling, falling, falling, falling,
Falling, falling, falling, falling
Falling on my head

Snowflake, snowflake, little snowflake,
Little snowflake
Falling from the sky
Snowflake, snowflake, little snowflake,
Falling, falling, falling, falling, falling,
Falling, falling, falling, falling
Falling on my nose

Snowflake, snowflake, little snowflake,
Little snowflake
Falling from the sky
Snowflake, snowflake, little snowflake,
Falling, falling, falling, falling, falling,
Falling, falling, falling, falling
Falling in my hand
Falling on my head
Falling on my nose
Falling in my hand

Snowflake, snowflake, little snowflake,
Little snowflake

Santa Claus Is Coming To Town Lyrics

You better watch out
You better not cry
You better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town

He’s making a list
And checking it twice
Gonna find out who’s naughty or nice
Santa Claus is coming to town

He sees you when you’re sleeping
He knows when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake

Oh! You better watch out
You better not cry
You better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town

He sees you when you’re sleeping
He knows when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake

Oh! You better watch out
You better not cry
You better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
