“O Come, All Ye Faithful”

O come, all ye faith-ful, joy-ful and tri-um-phant,

O come ye, O come ye to Beth-le-hem! Come and be-hold

Him, born the King of an-gels!     Refrain


Yea, Lord, we greet Thee, born this hap-py morn-ing,

Je-sus, to Thee be all glo-ry giv’n; Word of the Fa-ther,

now in flesh ap-pear-ing!    Refrain


Refrain:  O come, let us adore Him, O come, let us adore

Him, O come, let us adore Him, Christ the Lord!



“Thine Is the Glory”

Thine is the glo-ry, Ris-en, con-qu’ring Son; End-less

is the vic-t’ry Thou o’er death hast won.  An-gels

in bright rai-ment  Rolled the stone a-way, Kept the

fold-ed grave-clothes Where Thy bod-y lay.  Refrain


No more we doubt Thee, Glo-rious Prince of Life! Life is

naught with-out Thee;  Aid us in our strife; Make us more

than con-qu’rors, Through Thy death-less love; Bring us

safe through Jor-dan With thy power and love.  Refrain


Refrain: Thine is the glo-ry, Ris-en, con-qu’ring Son; End-less

is the vic-t’ry  Thou o’er death hast won.  A-men



“Joy to the World!”

Joy to the world! The Lord is come; Let earth re-ceive her

King; Let ev-‘ry heart pre-pare Him room, And heav’n

and na-ture sing, And heav’n and na-ture sing,

And heav’n and heav’n and na-ture sing.


He rules the world with truth and grace, And makes the

na-tions prove The glo-ries of His righ-teous-ness And

wond-ers of His love, And wond-ers of His love,

And won-ders, won-ders of His love.
