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 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.
Track Name: The Savior's Here
I heard the angels singing, singing
There up on the hill
They sang us Heaven’s greeting, greeting
of peace, on earth goodwill

Oh come let us sing
Come let us sing
The Savior’s here
The Savior’s here
Oh come let us bring
Our life’s offering
The Savior’s here
The Savior’s here

I saw the star there gleaming, gleaming
Pointing the wise the way
We followed as it’s leading, leading
To Jesus born today

Glory in the highest!
Glory in the highest!

I live to tell that story story
So all the world may know
Jesus the King of Glory, Glory
Our Joy, Eternal Hope

Oh come let us dance
In Joy for the King
The Savior’s here
The Savior’s here
Track Name: Humble King
Behold the humble King
So beautiful and blameless
The heart of God descending to the dust

Behold the wonder of
His longing to be with us
That He would come emptied of

Glory
Glory in the highest
Join with heaven as the angels sing
Glory
Glory in the highest
Clothed in humble majesty
Let every living thing
Behold our humble King

Behold the shining Star
Whose light is ever lifting
The heads of those who wander in the dark

Behold Him wrapped in cloth
His crown of Heaven leaving
That He would wear sorrow for (glory)

A manger throne to lie upon
A cathedral of stars declares Your glory
Oh come let us worship the King
Oh come let us worship the King
Track Name: Little Heart Beats
How beautiful and intimate
You formed us in our mother’s womb
You breathe the breath inside our lungs
And draw Your children close to You

We are invited
You are delighted in us

Jesus you are glorified
Jesus you are glorified
by little hands
and by little feet
and little heart beats

It wasn’t by an accident
Your life came to a virgin’s womb
A miracle from Heaven sent
To draw Your children close you

We are invited
You are delighted in us

For when we have faith just like a child
Jesus Your name is glorified
And when we receive you like a child
You fill us with eternal life
Track Name: Do You Hear What I Hear?
Said the night wind to the little lamb,
"Do you see what I see?
Way up in the sky, little lamb,
Do you see what I see?
A star, a star, dancing in the night
With a tail as big as a kite,
With a tail as big as a kite."

Said the little lamb to the shepherd boy,
"Do you hear what I hear?
Ringing through the sky, shepherd boy,
Do you hear what I hear?
A song, a song high above the trees
With a voice as big as the sea,
With a voice as big as the sea."

Said the shepherd boy to the mighty king,
"Do you know what I know?
In your palace walls, mighty king,
Do you know what I know?
A Child, a Child shivers in the cold--
Let us bring Him silver and gold,
Let us bring Him silver and gold."

Said the king to the people everywhere,
"Listen to what I say!
Pray for peace, people, everywhere,
Listen to what I say!
The Child, the Child sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light,
He will bring us goodness and light
Track Name: O Come All Ye Faithful
O Come All Ye Faithful
Joyful and triumphant
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem
Come and behold Him
Born the King of Angels

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

Sing, choirs of angels
Sing in exultation
Sing all ye citizens of Heaven above
Glory to God, Glory in the highest

Yea Lord, we greet Thee
Born this happy morning
Jesus, to Thee be all glory given
Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing
O come, let us adore Him
O come, let us adore Him
O come, let us adore Him
Christ the Lord
Track Name: Do Not Be Afraid
Oh do not be afraid
For born to you this day
In the little town of Bethlehem
Is the one who came to save

Oh do not be afraid
But have joy and be on your way
You will find him wrapped in swaddling clothes
The Messiah here today

Glory in the highest
Let the dark be turned to light
Glory in the highest
For the King, He is alive

Oh do not be afraid
In the trials you will face
Emmanuel is with you now
And His kingdom reigns today

Oh do not be afraid
When the soldiers guard His grave
For Christ has trampled over death
And the stone is rolled away
Track Name: We Bow Down
Oh how we waited
Prophets and poets

Said you were coming to us
Giving up heaven heaven
To die here among us

All for a world that you love

We bow down on bended knee

To worship and adore the Savior King
Who has come to heal our hearts
Who has come to set us free

Who has come to give His life
Oh we bow down

Oh how we trembled

Voices of angels

Declaring You’ve come down to us


Oh but do not be afraid

Great joy has come today

Let us go and see the Promise fulfilled

Joy to the world

The Lord is come

The Lord is come

We’re singing joy to the world

The Lord is come

The Lord is come
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 thronged the air
But His mother only, 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
But I am a poor boy, I give You my heart
Jesus, I give You my heart
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 Savior is born
Christ, the Savior 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: Be His 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

Can you hear it?

The voice of Jesus calling you to be
His joy upon the earth
To be his kingdom

To the lost and to the broken

The hungry and the poor
Let heaven and nature sing

Will you go

And be the love Jesus to the orphan
A comfort to the widow

That they may know

The joy of his salvation

The fullness of his love
Let heaven and nature sing

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: The Announcement of Jesus' Birth
Do not be afraid
Do not be afraid
I bring you good news
For every people

For today in the City of David
Has been born a Savior
Who is Christ the Lord

And this will be a sign to you
You will find Him wrapped in cloth
Lying in a manger

Glory in the highest
Peace on earth to all He favors
