Joy to the world

Joy to the world the Lord is come
Let earth receive her King
Let ev’ry heart prepare Him room
And heav’n and nature sing
And heav’n and nature sing
And heav’n and heav’n and nature sing

Joy to the WORLD 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

Hark the Herald / King of Heaven

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 host proclaim
Christ is born in Bethlehem
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
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

King of heaven come down
King of heaven come now
Let Your glory reign

Shining like the day
King of heaven come
King of heaven rise up
Who can stand against us
You are strong to save
In Your mighty name
King of heaven come

Christ by highest heav’n adored
Christ the everlasting Lord
Late in time behold Him come
Offspring of a virgin’s womb
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 

For unto us

For unto us a child is born
A Son is given, a Son is given
For unto us a child is born
A Son is given, a Son is given
The Messiah
Oh to see Him

To see Him high and lifted up
Shining in the light of His glory
Pour out Your power and love
As we sing holy holy holy

Holy holy holy  

Ending:
Men: For unto us a child is born
Ladies: Holy Holy Holy 

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 

Shepherds why this jubilee
Why your joyous strains prolong
What the gladsome tidings be
Which inspire your heavenly song 

Gloria, in excelsis Deo

Come to Bethlehem and see
He whose birth the angels sing
Come adore on bended knee
Christ our Lord the newborn King

Silent Night / Saviour King

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 host sing hallelujah
Christ the Saviour is born
Christ the Saviour is born

I love You Lord
 I worship You
Hope which was lost
Now stands renewed
I give my life to honour this
The love of Christ the Saviour King

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
