Christmas is Coming

journey of creative enlightenment

Christmas is coming, 

The geese are getting fat, 
Please put a penny 
In the old man’s hat. 
If you haven’t got a penny, 
A ha’penny will do, 
If you haven’t got a ha’penny, 
Then God bless you.

Oh Come, All Ye Faithful

journey of creative enlightenment

Oh 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.

God of God, 
Light of Light, 
Lo! he abhors not the Virgin’s womb: 
Very God, 
Begotten, not created; Refrain

Sing, choirs of angels, 
Sing in exultation, 
Sing, all ye citizens of heaven above; 
Glory to God 
In the highest; Refrain

See how the shepherds, 
Summoned to his cradle, 
Leaving their flocks, draw nigh to gaze; 
We too will thither 
Bend our joyful footsteps; Refrain

Child, for us sinners 
Poor and in the manger, 
We would embrace thee, with love and awe; 
Who would not live thee, 
Loving us so dearly? Refrain

Yea, Lord, we greet thee, 
Born this happy morning; 
Jesus, to thee be glory given; 
Word of the Father, 
Now in flesh appearing; Refrain

Do You Hear What I Hear?

journey of creative enlightenment

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 the sea, 
With a voice as big as the the sea.”

Said the shepherd boy to the mighty king, 
“Do you know what I know? 
In your palace warm, 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.”

Carol of the Bells

journey of creative enlightenment

Carol of the Bells

Hark! how the bells 
Sweet silver bells 
All seem to say, 
“Throw cares away.” 
Christmas is here 
Bringing good cheer 
To young and old 
Meek and the bold

Ding, dong, ding, dong 
That is their song 
With joyful ring 
All caroling 
One seems to hear 
Words of good cheer 
From ev’rywhere 
Filling the air

Oh how they pound, 
Raising the sound, 
O’er hill and dale, 
Telling their tale, 
Gaily they ring 
While people sing 
Songs of good cheer 
Christmas is here 
Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas 
Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas

On, on they send 
On without end 
Their joyful tone 
To ev’ry home

(repeat from the beginning)

Ding, dong, ding, dong.

Frosty the Snowman

journey of creative enlightenment

Frosty the Snowman

Frosty the snowman was a jolly happy soul,
With a corncob pipe and a button nose,
And two eyes made out of coal.
Frosty the snowman is a fairy tale, they say,
He was made of snow but the children
know how he came to life one day.
There must have been some magic in that
Old silk hat they found.
For when they placed it on his head,
He began to dance around.

O, Frosty the snowman
Was alive as he could be,
And the children say he could laugh
And play just the same as you and me.
Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpety thump thump,
Look at Frosty go.
Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpety thump thump,
Over the hills of snow.

Frosty the snowman knew
The sun was hot that day,
So he said, “Let’s run and
we’ll have some fun
now before I melt away.”
Down to the village,
With a broomstick in his hand,
Running here and there all
Around the square saying,
Catch me if you can.
He led them down the streets of town
Right to the traffic cop.
And he only paused a moment when
He heard him holler “Stop!”

For Frosty the snowman
Had to hurry on his way,
But he waved goodbye saying,
“Don’t you cry,
I’ll be back again some day.”
Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpety thump thump,
Look at Frosty go.
Thumpetty thump thump,
Thumpety thump thump,
Over the hills of snow.

Joy to the World

journey of creative enlightenment

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 earth! 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.

No more let sins and sorrows grow, 
nor thorns infest the ground; 
He comes to make His blessing flow 
far as the curse is found, 
far as the curse is found, 
far as, 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, 
and wonders of His love, 
and wonders, wonders of His love.
