Track Name: Wish You Were Here
Seems like only yesterday
We sat around on Christmas Day
Drank some eggnog, told a joke
Brought some cookies to the older folks
Put a log on a roaring fire
Watched the flames grow higher and higher

Light a candle for us
Be of good cheer
Merry Christmas to you
We wish you were here

It's cold in New England
The snow's on the ground
Evergreen branches bow low all around
Walked outside in the cold night air
Counted stars when you were there
From Boston to Bar Harbor
Boats sit frozen in the water

Light a candle for us
Be of good cheer
Merry Christmas to you
We wish you were here

Kids sit on the stairs
Waiting to open presents near
Everything will be alright
No place I'd rather be tonight
We all want to come home
Tomorrow is Christmas Day

Light a candle for us
Be of good cheer
Merry Christmas to you
We wish you were here
Merry Christmas to you
Track Name: Silent Night
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
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia!
Christ, the Saviour is born
Christ, the Saviour 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
Track Name: Bring A Torch, Jeannette, Isabella
Bring a torch, Jeannette, Isabella!
Bring a torch, to Bethlehem come!
Christ is born! Tell the folk of the village
Mary has laid Him in a manger.
Ah! Ah! beautiful is the Mother!
Ah! Ah! beautiful is her Child!

It is wrong when the Baby is sleeping,
It is wrong to speak so loud.
Silence, now as you gather around,
Lest your noise should waken Jesus.
Hush! Hush! see how the Baby slumbers!
Hush! Hush! see how the Baby sleeps!

Softly now unto the stable,
Softly for a moment come!
Look and see how charming is Jesus,
Look at Him there, His cheeks are rosy!
Hush! Hush! see how the Child is sleeping!
Hush! Hush! see how He smiles in dreams!
Track Name: Still, Still, Still
Still, still, still,
One can hear the falling snow.
For all is hushed,
The world is sleeping,
Holy Star its vigil keeping.
Still, still, still,
One can hear the falling snow.

Sleep, sleep, sleep,
'Tis the eve of our Saviour's birth.
The night is peaceful all around you,
Close your eyes,
Let sleep surround you.
Sleep, sleep, sleep,
'Tis the eve of our Saviour's birth.

Dream, dream, dream,
Of the joyous day to come.
While guardian angels without number,
Watch you as you sweetly slumber.
Dream, dream, dream,
Of the joyous day to come.
Track Name: O Come, Little Children
Oh, come, little children, oh, come, one and all,
O come to the manger in Bethlehem's stall,
Come see what our Father in heaven above,
Has sent to us all on this earth with His love.

He is born in a stable for you and for me,
Draw near by the bright gleaming starlight to see,
In swaddling clothes lying so meek and so mild,
And purer than angels the heavenly Child.

Now "Glory to God!" sing the angels on high.
And "Peace upon Earth!" heavenly voices reply.
Then come little children, and join in the day
That gladdened the world on that first Christmas Day

Oh, come, little children, oh, come, one and all,
O come to the manger in Bethlehem's stall,
Come see what our Father in heaven above,
Has sent to us all on this earth with His love.
Track Name: Hark! The Herald Angels Sing
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 the angelic host proclaim:
"Christ is born in Bethlehem"
Hark! The herald angels sing
"Glory to the newborn King!"

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!"

Hail the heav'n-born Prince of Peace!
Hail the Son of Righteousness!
Light and life to all He brings
Ris'n 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!"
Track Name: Baloo, Lammy
This day to you is born a Child
Of Mary meek the Virgin mild
That blessed bairn so loving and kind
Shall now rejoice both heart and mind
Baloo, lammy

And now shall Mary's little boy
Forever be our hope and joy
Eternal being His reign on earth
Rejoice then all people for this Holy birth
Baloo, lammy

Speak gently King Jesus and know no fear
Thy subjects adoring watch over Thee here
God's angels and shepherds and kine in their stall
And wise men and Virgin lie guardians all
Baloo, lammy
Track Name: O Holy Night
O holy night! The stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of the dear Saviour's birth.
Long lay the world in sin and error pining.
Till 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 angel voices!
O night divine, O night when Christ was born;
O night, O holy night, O night divine!
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 wisemen from the Orient land.
The King of Kings lay thus in lowly manger;
In all our trials born to be our friend.
He knows our need, 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! Then ever, ever praise we,
His power and glory ever more proclaim!
His power and glory ever more proclaim!
Track Name: Masters In This Hall
Masters in this Hall,

Hear ye news today

Brought from overseas,

And ever I you pray

Noel Noel Noel

Noel, sing we clear

Holpen are all folk on earth,

Born is God's Son so dear.

Noel Noel Noel
Noel, sing we loud

God today hath poor folk raised

And cast a-down the proud.

Going o'er the hills,

Through the milk-white snow,

Heard I ewes bleat

While the wind did blow

Masters in this Hall,

Hear ye news today

Brought from overseas,

And ever I you pray

This is Christ the Lord,

Masters be ye glad!

Christmas is come in,

And no folk should be sad
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
Shall come to thee, O Israel

O come, Thou Dayspring, come and cheer
Our spirits by Thine advent here.
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
And death's dark shadows put to flight.

Rejoice, rejoice!  Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O 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
Shall come to thee, O Israel

Veni, veni, Emmanuel
Captivum solve Israel.
Qui gemit in exilio,
privatus Dei filio.

Rejoice, rejoice!  Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel
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.

Angels and archangels may have gathered there,
Cherubim and seraphim filled the air;
But only His mother, in her maiden bliss,
Worshipped the beloved with a kiss.

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 can I give Him?
I'd give to Him, I'd give to Him
my heart.
Track Name: Angels We Have Heard On High
Angels we have on heard high
Sweetly singing ore the plains
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strains

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

Gloria in excelsis Deo
Gloria in excelsis Deo

See Him in a manger laid
Whom the choirs of angels praise
Mary, Joseph, lend your aid
While our hearts in love we raise

Gloria in excelsis Deo
Gloria in excelsis Deo
Gloria in excelsis Deo
Track Name: Polish Lullaby
Sleep, little Jesus, my treasure, my blessing
While Mary comforts Thee, tender, caressing.
Lullaby, little one, in loving arms lying,
Guarding my darling and stilling Thy crying.

When Thou awakenest, Jesus, my treasure,
Raisins and almonds I have for Thy pleasure.
Lullaby, little one, in loving arms lying,
Guarding my darling and stilling Thy crying.

High in the heavens a lovely star sees us,
But like the shining sun, my little Jesus.
Lullaby, little one, in loving arms lying,
Guarding my darling and stilling Thy crying.
Track Name: On This Christmas Day
Winter nights
A star shines brightly
Christmas can't be far away.

Falling snow
Excitement growing
Families gather
Friends are stopping by
May these moments come to stay

On this Christmas Day

Fires burn
A nation's yearning
Peace and plenty, love and joy

Hearts beat strong
And people long for
Kindness given each in his own way
Faith and courage we display

On this Christmas Day

Let the children sing
Hear the caroling
Let the bells ring
Everywhere today
A kingdom for us all
A home for you
A home for me
A place we all can stay
On this Christmas Day

Mary, Joseph
Baby Jesus
Needn't seem so far away.

Raise your voice
And sing this song
Together we will find a better way
Hope and kindness this I pray

On this Christmas Day
On this Christmas Day
Track Name: It Came Upon The Midnight Clear
It came upon the midnight clear
That glorious song of old,
From angels bending near the earth,
To touch their harps of gold;

Peace on the earth, good will to men,
From heaven’s all gracious king.
The world in solemn stillness lay,
To hear the angels sing.

For low the days are hastening on
By profit bards fortold,
When with the ever circling years
Comes round the age of gold.

When peace shall over all the earth
Its ancient splendors fling.
And all the word send back the song
Which now the angels sing.
