Track Name: Go Tell It On The Mountain
Go Tell It On The Mountain

Go, tell it on the mountain

Over the hills and everywhere

Go tell it on the mountain

That Jesus Christ is born

Down in a lowly manger

The humble Christ was born

And brought us salvation

That blessèd Christmas morn

chorus...
Why don't you live so God can use you
Anywhere, Anytime

Now when I was a seeker

I sought both night and day

I asked the Lord to help me,
And he showed me the way

chorus...
Why don't you live so God can use you
Anywhere, Anytime

He made me a watchman

Upon a city wall
And if I am a Christian

I am the least of all

chorus...
Why don't you live so God can use you
Anywhere, Anytime


 


The shepherds feared and trembled
When lo! above the earth
Rang out the angels chorus

That hailed the Savior’s birth Hallelujah

chorus...
Why don't you live so God can use you
Anywhere, Anytime

Now me just a sinner
i prayed Lord come right away
I asked the Lord forgive me
And He washed my sins away
it was a happy day

ending
Go, tell it on the mountain

Over the hills and everywhere

Go tell it on the mountain

That Jesus Christ is born

Why don't you live so God can use you
Track Name: Christmas Hymn
Christmas Hymn


Christians, awake, salute the happy morn
Whereon the Savior of the world was born.
Rise to adore the mystery of love,
Which hosts of angels chanted from above;
With them the joyful tidings first begun
Of God Incarnate and the Virgin's Son.

Then to the watchful shepherds it was told,
Who heard the angelic herald's voice:
"Behold, I bring good tidings of a Savior's birth
To you and all the nations upon the earth;
This day hath God fulfilled His promised Word,
This day is born a Savior, Christ the Lord.

He spake; and straightaway the celestial choir
In hymns of joy, unknown before, conspire;
The praises of redeeming love they sang,
And heaven's whole orb with alleluias rang;
God's highest glory was their anthem still,
Peace upon earth and unto men good will.

To Bethlehem straight the happy shepherds ran,
To see the wonder God had wrought for man;
And found, with Joseph and the blessed maid,
Her Son, the Savior, in a manger laid;
Amazed, the wondrous story they proclaim,
The earliest heralds of the Savior’s name.

Let us, like these good shepherds, then employ
Our grateful voices to proclaim the joy;
Trace we the Babe, who hath retrieved our loss,
From His poor manger to His bitter cross;
Treading his steps, assisted by His grace,
Till man’s first heavenly state again takes place.

Then may we hope, the angelic thrones among,
To sing, redeemed, a glad triumphal song;
He that was born upon this joyful day
Around us all His glory shall display.
Saved by His love, incessant we shall sing
Eternal praise to heaven's Almighty King.
Track Name: Joy To The World
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.

Joy to the earth, 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 righteousness,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders, wonders, of His love.
Track Name: Evermore
Evermore

Of the Father’s love begotten
Ere the worlds began to be
He is Alpha and Omega
He the source, He ending He
Of the things that are and have been
And that future years shall see

chorus
Evermore, evermore
Jesus King of Kings
Evermore Love came for
All for you and me

O that birth forever blessed
When virgin full of grace
By the Holy Ghost conceiving
Bare the Savior of our race
And the babe the world’s redeemer
First revealed his sacred face

chorus
Evermore, evermore
Jesus King of Kings
Evermore Love came for
All for you and me

Oh ye heights of heaven adore Him
Angel hosts, His praises sing
Powers, dominions, bow before Him
And extol our God and King
Let no tongue on earth be silent
Every voice in concert ring

chorus
Evermore, evermore
Jesus King of Kings
Evermore Love came for
All for you and me


Christ, to thee with God the Father
And, O Holy Ghost, to thee
Hymn and chant and high thanksgiving
And unwearied praises be
Honor, glory and dominion
And eternal victory

chorus
Evermore, evermore
Jesus King of Kings
Evermore Love came for
All for you and me
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,
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,
Oh, hear the angels voices!

O night divine, O night when Christ was born!
O night, O holy 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,
Oh, praise His name forever!

His pow’r and glory evermore proclaim!
His pow’r and glory evermore proclaim!
Track Name: From Heaven High
From Heaven High

From heaven high I come to you,
I bring you tidings good and new;
Good tidings of great joy I bring:
Thereof will I both say and sing.

Now let us all right merry be,
And, with the shepherds, go to see
God’s own dear Son, within the stall;
His gift, bestowed upon us all.

For you a little child is born
Of God’s own chosen maid, this morn:
A fair and tender baby bright,
To be your joy and your delight.

Mark well, my heart; look well, mine eyes;
Who is it in the manger lies:
What child is this, so young and fair?
It is my Jesus lieth there.

Lo, He is Christ, the Lord indeed,
Our God, to guide you in your need:
And He will be your Savior, strong
To cleanse you from all sin and wrong.

Ah, dearest Jesus, be my guest:
Soft be the bed where thou wilt rest,
A little shrine within my heart,
That thou and I may never part.
Track Name: Angels We Have Heard On High
Angels We Have Heard On High

Angels we have heard on high
Sweetly singing o’er the plains,
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strains.

Gloria, in excelsis Deo!
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!
Gloria, in excelsis Deo!

Come to Bethlehem and see
Christ Whose birth the angels sing;
Come, adore on bended knee,
Christ the Lord, the newborn King.
Track Name: Watchman
Watchman
words by John Bowring, 1825
music by danny Donnelly


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: Glory Be To God
Glory Be To God

He whom joyous shepherds praised
When the angels song was raised
Bidding them be not amazed
Heaven's all glorious King is born

Sing to Christ the King who reignet
` Born of God let us adore Him
Glory be to God on high
On that Christmas Morn

He whom sages westward faring
Myrrh and gold and incense bearing
Worshipped bowing low before him
Reigns as King on this happy morn

Now rejoice with Jesus's mother
Praise her new born son our brother
Angels vie with one another
Praising him beyond the sky

Latin Text from year 1410 Tr. WinfredDouglas
Track Name: God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

God rest ye 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

From God our heavenly Father, the 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

"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

bridge:
Be not afraid for tomorrow or yesterday
For today a Savior's born
To free all those who trust in Him
Wonderful Councilor, Prince of Peace, Mighty God …Jesus


bridge lyrics dannyD
Track Name: We Three Kings
We Three Kings

We three kings of Orient are;
Bearing gifts we traverse afar,
Field and fountain, moor and mountain,
Following yonder star.


O star of wonder, star of light,
Star with royal beauty bright,
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to thy perfect light.

Born a King on Bethlehem’s plain
Gold I bring to crown Him again,
King forever, ceasing never,
Over us all to reign.

O star of wonder, star of light,
Star with royal beauty bright,
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to thy perfect light.

Frankincense to offer have I;
Incense owns a Deity nigh;
Prayer and praising, voices raising,
Worshipping God on high.

O star of wonder, star of light,
Star with royal beauty bright,
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to thy perfect light.

Myrrh is mine, its bitter perfume
Breathes a life of gathering gloom;
Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding, dying,
Sealed in the stone cold tomb.

O star of wonder, star of light,
Star with royal beauty bright,
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to thy perfect light.

Glorious now behold Him arise;
King and God and sacrifice;
Alleluia, Alleluia,
Sounds through the earth and skies.

O star of wonder, star of light,
Star with royal beauty bright,
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to thy perfect light.
