Carols!

Welcome to our socially distant carol service! Things are a bit different this year, but we wanted to join together to celebrate Christmas and remember that “light has come into the world” (John 3:19)

Here’s what we’ll be singing this evening:

Oh Come All Ye Faithful

1. Oh, come, all ye faithful,
Joyful and triumphant!
Oh, come ye, oh come ye to Bethlehem
Come and behold him, Born the King of angels

Oh, come, let us adore him
Oh, come, let us adore him
Oh, come, let us adore him
Christ, the Lord

2. Sing, choirs of angels,
Sing in exultation,
Sing, all ye citizens of heaven above!
Glory to God,
Glory in the highest

Oh, come, let us adore him
Oh, come, let us adore him
Oh, come, let us adore him
Christ, the Lord

3. Yes, Lord, we greet thee,
Born this happy morning
Jesus, to thee be all glory given.
Son of the Father,
Now in flesh appearing

Oh, come, let us adore him
Oh, come, let us adore him
Oh, come, let us adore him
Christ, the Lord
!

Away in a Manger

1. Away in a manger
No crib for His bed
The little Lord Jesus
Lay down His sweet head

2. The stars in the bright sky
Look down where He lay
The little Lord Jesus
Asleep on the hay

3. The cattle are lowing
The poor Baby wakes
But little Lord Jesus
No crying He makes

4. I love Thee, Lord Jesus
Look down from the sky
And stay by my side
‘Til morning is nigh

5. Be near me, Lord Jesus
I ask Thee to stay
Close by me forever
And love me, I pray

6. Bless all the dear children
In Thy tender care
And take us to Heaven
To live with Thee there

While shepherds watched their flocks by night

1. While shepherds watched their flocks by night,
All seated on the ground,
The angel of the Lord came down,
And glory shone around.
“Fear not,” said he, for mighty dread
Had seized their troubled mind,
“Glad tidings of great joy I bring
To you and all mankind.”

2. “To you, in David’s town this day,
Is born of David’s line
The Saviour who is Christ the Lord,
And this shall be the sign:
The heavenly Babe you there shall find
To human view displayed,
All meanly wrapped in swathing bands,
And in a manger laid.”

3. Thus spake the seraph, and forthwith
Appeared a shining throng
Of angels praising God, who thus
Addressed their joyful song:
“All glory be to God on high
And on the earth be peace.
Goodwill henceforth from heaven to man
Begin and never cease.”

Hark the Herald Angels Sing

1. Hark! The 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 hosts proclaim:
“Christ is born in Bethlehem”
Hark! the herald angels sing:
“Glory to the newborn King!”

2. Christ by highest Heav’n adored
Christ the everlasting Lord!
Late in time behold Him come
Offspring of a Virgin’s womb
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see
Hail the incarnate Deity
Pleased as man with man to dwell
Jesus, our Emmanuel
Hark! the herald angels sing:
“Glory to the newborn King!”

3. Hail the Heav’n-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 man no more may die
Born to raise the sons of earth
Born to give them second birth
Hark! the herald angels sing:
“Glory to the newborn King!”

Joy to the World

Joy to the world, the Lord has 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 Saviour 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!

Thank you for joining us this evening, we hope you have a wonderful Christmas!
