This is our first Christmas album but it won't be the last. We love the true meaning of Christmas and the songs that go with it. They are really fun to revamp and make fresh too! Hope you enjoy!

Track Name: Hark! The Herald Angles Sing
Hark The Herald

Hark the herald angels sing, glory to the new born 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 new born King

Hail the heaven-born Prince of peace, hail the sun 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 will die
Born to raise the sons of earth, born to give them second birth


Christ by highest heaven adored, Christ the everlasting Lord
Late in time behold Him come, offspring of a virgins womb
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see, hail the incarnate Deity
Pleased as man with men to dwell, Jesus our Emmanuel

Track Name: O Come All Ye Faithful
Oh Come All Ye Faithful

O come all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant,
Oh come ye, o come ye to Bethlehem
Come and behold Him, born this 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 choir of angels, sing in exultation,
Oh sing all ye citizens of heaven above
Word of the father, now in flesh appearing


Oh Lord we great thee, born this happy morning,
Jesus to thee be all glory given
Glory to God, glory in the highest

Track Name: Away in a Manger
Away In A Manger

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,
The little Lord Jesus, Lay down his sweet head.
The little Lord Jesus, asleep on the hay.
The stars in the sky, looked down where he lay

Be near me Lord Jesus, I ask You to stay,
Close by me forever, and love me I pray.
Bless all the dear children, in Your tender care,
And fit us for heaven, to live with You there.

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,
The little Lord Jesus, Lay down his sweet head.
The little Lord Jesus, asleep on the hay.
The stars in the sky, looked down where he lay
Track Name: Go Tell it on the Mountain
Go Tell It On The Mountain

Go tell it on the mountain, over the hills and everywhere;
Go tell it on the mountain, that Jesus Christ is born.

While shepherds kept their watching, o'er silent flocks by night
Behold throughout the heavens, there shone a Holy Light.
The shepherds feared and trembled, when lo above the earth,
Rang out the angel chorus, that hailed our Savior's birth.


In a lowly manger the humble Christ was born
And brought us God's salvation that blessed Christmas morn!

Track Name: Good Shepherd
The King of Love

The King of love my shepherd is, whose goodness faileth never.
I do not lack if I am His, and He is mine forever.
Where streams of living water flow, my ransomed soul He’s leading;
And where the verdant pastures grow, with food of heaven feeding.

Good Shepherd, may I sing, Your praises forever.
King of love your goodness stands and faileth me never.

Perverse and foolish, oft I strayed, but yet in love He sought me;
And on His shoulder gently laid, and home, rejoicing, brought me.
In death's dark vale I fear no ill, with You, dear Lord, beside me;
Your rod and staff my comfort still, Your cross before to guide me.


You spread a table in my sight; Your special grace bestoweth;
The blood which brings me to delight from Your pure chalice floweth!
And so through all the length of days, Your goodness faileth never;
Good Shepherd, may I sing Your praise within Your house forever.

Track Name: God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

God rest ye merry gentlemen, let nothing you dismay
Remember Christ our savior, was born on Christmas day
To save us all from Satan's power when we're gone astray

O tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

From God our heavenly Father, A bles-sed angel came
And unto certain shepherds, brought tidings of the same
How that in Bethlehem was born, the Son of God by name


Now to the Lord sing praises, all you within this place
And with true love and brotherhood, each other now embrace
This holy tide of Christmas, all the others do deface
Track Name: Unto Us
Unto Us

A Boy is Born in Bethlehem! And joy is in Jerusalem,
And there He lay in manger poor, whose rein shall last for ever-more,

The animals and all the heards, knew well that Boy to be the Lord!
And kings from out the East there were, with gold and frankincense and myrrh

For unto us Christ is born
For unto us He is here
The Son has come to die
And He will save our lives

He lived like us in form and dress, with no trace of sin or wickedness.
He came our souls to purify, and bring us safe to bliss on high


Therefore let us with one accord, on this His Birthday praise the Lord!

Track Name: Joy to the World
Joy to the world

Joy to the world, the Lord is 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

Joy to the world, the Lord is come, let earth receive her King
Let every heart, prepare Him room, and heaven and nature sing

Joy to the world, Joy to the world,
Joy to the world the Lord has come

No more let sins and sorrows grow, or thorns infest the ground
He comes to make, His blessings flow, far as the curse is found


He rules the world with truth and grace, and makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness, and wonders of His love
Track Name: What Child is This?
What Child Is This

What child is this, who laid to rest, on Mary's lap is sleeping
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet, while shepherds watch are keeping

This, this is Christ the King, whom shepherds guard and angels sing
Haste, haste to bring Him praise, the babe, the Son of Mary

So bring Him incense gold and myrrh, come pleasant king to own Him
The King of kings salvation brings, let loving hearts enthrone Him

(Chorus 2)
Nails, spear shall pierce Him thro, the cross be borne for me for you
Hail, hail the word made flesh, the babe the Son of Mary
Raise, raise the song on high, the virgin sings her lullaby
Joy, joy for Christ is born, the babe the Son of Mary
Track Name: Shepherds Rejoice
Shepherds Rejoice

Shepherds, rejoice! lift up your voice, send your fears away; News from the the skies: Salvation is born. Jesus, the God whom angels fear, comes down to dwell with you today, He enters here.

We join to sing Your love, For there's a Savior born.

Lord You shall have your song today. Men no tunes to raise? O may we lose these useless tongues, cause they forget to praise!
Go shepherds where the Infant lies, and see his humble throne; With tears of joy in all your eyes.


Gabriel sang, and straight around, the heavenly armies throng; 
 They tune their harps, to lofty sound, thus conclude the song: 
Glory to God, that reigns above, Let peace surround the earth; 
 Mortals shall know, their Maker's love, At their Redeemer's birth.

Track Name: Angels We Have Heard On High
Angels We Have Heard On High

Angels we have heard on high, sweetly singing o'er the plains
And the mountains in reply, echo back their joyous strains

Gloria! Glory to God on high

Shepherds why this jubilee, why your joyous strains prolong
Say what may the tidings be, which inspire your heavenly song


Come to Bethlehem and see, Him whose birth the angels sing
Come adore on bended knee, Christ the Lord the new born King


Glory to God
