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, and ransom captive Israel.

O come o come thou Lord of Light, who to thy tribes on Sinai's height, in ancient times did give the law, in cloud and majesty and awe. Rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel, and ransom captive Israel.

O come thou rod of Jesse free, thy own from Satan's tyranny, from depths of hell they people save, and give them victory over the grave. Rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel, and ransom captive Israel.

O come thou Dayspring come and cheer our spirits by thy advent here. Disperse the gloomy clouds of night, and death's dark shadows put to flight. Rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel, and ransom captive Israel.

O come thou key of David come and open wide our heavenly home. Make safe the way that leads on high, and close the path to misery. Rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel, and ransom captive Israel.
Track Name: I Saw Three Ships
I saw three ships come sailing in
Come sailing in, come sailing in;
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?

The Savior Christ and His Lady,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
The Savior Christ and His Lady,
On Christmas Day in the morning.

Pray, wither sailed those ships all three,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
Pray, wither 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 Heaven shall sing,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
And all the Angels in Heaven 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 again,
On Christmas Day, on Christmas Day;
Then let us all rejoice again,
On Christmas Day in the morning.
Track Name: Gloria in Excelsis Deo
On that dark night so long ago, a babe was born in stable low. They named him Jesus, holy Christ child, the one to bear the sin of the world.

Chorus:
We sing gloria in excelsis, gloria in excelsis deo.
We sing gloria in excelsis, gloria in excelsis deo.

As shepherds kept their watch by night, the angels sang their song of light. They told of Jesus, holy Christ child, the one to bear the sin of the world.

Chorus

Three wise men came, they traveled far; on bended knee, these wise men are; to praise this Jesus, holy Christ child, the one to bear the sin of the world.

Chorus

And we'll keep watch the ages through; this child be born, for me for you. Though lives are broken, hope is spoken through Christ who bears the sin of the world.

Chorus
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.

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 Almighty, 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: Children, Go Where I Send Thee
First time you're hearing this song? You'll catch on quickly to how each verse builds on the next.

Children go where I send thee. How shall I send thee?
Well, I'm going to send thee one by one, one for the little bitty baby, was born, born, born in Bethlehem.
Children go where I send thee. How shall I send thee?
Well, I'm going to send thee two by two. Two for the Paul and Silas, one for the little bitty baby was born...
...three for the Hebrew children...
...four for the four who stood at the door...
...five for the Gospel preachers...
...six for the six who never got fixed...
...seven for the seven who never got to heaven...
...eight for the eight who stood at the gate...
...nine for the nine all dressed so fine...
...ten for the ten commandments...
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 Christians, 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 a song on high,
The virgin sings her lullaby
Joy, joy for Christ is born,
The babe, the Son of Mary.
Track Name: Sweet Child
Sweet child you were born for the sake of the world; for all who are lost out in the cold. Sweet child you have come that we might be whole, and be for the world, strong healers and bold.

Sweet child you were there at the dawn of the world. The Word brought all life out of the cold. Dear Christ you have come that we might be whole, and share with the world, your sweet song of old.

Come gather with wonder to gaze on this face, to gaze on this child, laid in this place. Sweet child you bring love that we might know love; so bring to the world your peace from above.

Sweet child you bring love that we might know love; so bring to the world your peace from above.
Track Name: See Amidst the Winter Snow
See amidst the winter's snow,
Born for us on earth below,
See the tender Lamb appears,
Promised from eternal years.

Chorus
Hail, thou ever-blessed morn!
Hail, redemption's happy dawn!
Sing through all Jerusalem,
Christ is born in Bethlehem.

Lo, within a manger lies
He who built the starry skies;
He who throned in height sublime
Sits amid the cherubim.

Chorus

Say, ye holy shepherds, say
What your joyful news today;
Wherefore have ye left your sheep
On the lonely mountain steep?

Chorus

"As we watched at dead of night,
Lo, we saw a wondrous light;
Angels singing peace on earth
Told us of the Savior's birth".

Chorus

Sacred infant, all divine,
What a tender love was thine,
Thus to come from highest bliss
Down to such a world as this.

Chorus

Teach, O teach us , Holy Child,
By Thy Face so meek and mild,
Teach us to resemble Thee,
In Thy Sweet humility!

Chorus
Track Name: Quem Pastores
Quem pastores laudavere,
quibus angeli dixere,
absit vobis jam timere,
natus est rex gloriæ.

Ad quem reges ambulabant,
aurum, thus, myrrham portabant,
immolabant hæc sincere
Leoni victoriæ.

Christo regi, Deo nato,
per Mariam nobis dato,
merito resonet vere
Dulci cum melodia.

The one praised by the shepherds,
to whom the angels said,
“Now lay aside your fears,”
has been born the king of glory.

To whom the wise men made their way,
bringing gold, frankincense, and myrrh,
which they offered with open hearts
to the victorious lion.

To Christ the king, born God,
given to us through Mary,
let there resound as is truly fitting
praise, honor, and glory.
Track Name: Expectation
In the darkness of the night we wait in expectation; for the coming of our Savior, who was born to save us. We the mothers, we the fathers, we the hopeful children, we the broken vessels weary, we of anxious heart:

Look to the eastern sky, there the star bright, pray for the living Word, Christ-child hope-filled light.

We the ones who come to praise you, here on bended knee; we the children of the ages, help us Lord to see; born from earth, return to dust this life is ever-fleeting; in the cold before the dawn oh help us too remember:

Look to the eastern sky, there the star bright, pray for the living Word, Christ-child hope-filled light.

Living hope of all the nations we await your coming. Breathing water of salvation we await your coming. Promised feast for all the hungry we await your coming. Holy Spirit in endless mercy we await your coming.

Look to the eastern sky, there the star bright, pray for the living Word, Christ-child hope-filled light. Look to the eastern sky, there the star bright, pray for the living Word, Christ child hope-filled light.

In the darkness of the night we wait in expectation.
In the darkness of the night we wait in expectation.
In the darkness of the night we wait in expectation.
