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.
O come, let us adore Him…

Sing, choirs of angels, sing in exultation,
Sing, all ye citizens of heaven above;
Glory to God in the highest:
O come, let us adore Him…

Yea, Lord, we greet Thee,
born that happy morning,
Jesus, to Thee be glory given;
Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing;
O come, let us adore Him…


St Anselm’s School, Merry Christmas

TRiC Stars dance troop, Christmas everywhere - Kids Bop 


The First Nowell, the Angels did say
Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay
In fields where they lay keeping their sheep
On a cold winter's night that was so deep.
Nowell, Nowell, Nowell, Nowell,
Born is the King of Israel!

And by the light of that same star
Three Wise men came from country far
To seek for a King was their intent
And to follow the star wherever it went.
Nowell, Nowell, Nowell, Nowell…

Then entered in those Wise men three
Full reverently upon their knee
And offered there in His presence
Their gold and myrrh and frankincense.
Nowell, Nowell, Nowell, Nowell…

Then let us all with one accord
Sing praises to our heavenly Lord
That hath made Heaven and earth of nought
And with his blood mankind has bought.
Nowell, Nowell, Nowell, Nowell,
Born is the King of Israel!


Luke 2v8-20, Cllr. Jeff green, Mayor of Wirral


Edge of 17 @ The Hive, O holy night


O little town of Bethlehem,
how still we see thee lie
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by.
Yet in thy dark streets shineth,
the everlasting Light
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight.

O morning stars together
Proclaim the holy birth
And praises sing to God the King
And Peace to men on earth.
For Christ is born of Mary,
and gathered all above
While mortals sleep, the angels keep
Their watch of wondering love.

How silently, how silently,
the wondrous gift is given!
So God imparts to human hearts,
the blessings of His heaven.
No ear may hear His coming,
But in this world of sin,
Where meek souls will receive him still,
The dear Christ enters in.

O holy Child of Bethlehem, 
descend to us, we pray
Cast out our sin and enter in, 
be born to us today
We hear the Christmas angels
The great glad tidings tell
O come to us, abide with us
Our Lord Emmanuel.


Over the Water Choirs, Do You Hear What I Hear & Underneath The Tree

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 the angelic host proclaim:
"Christ is born in Bethlehem"

Hark! The herald angels sing,
"Glory to the newborn King!"

Christ by highest heav'n adored
Christ the everlasting Lord!
Late in time behold Him come
Offspring of a Virgin's womb
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see
Hail the incarnate Deity
Pleased as man with man to dwell,
Jesus, our Emmanuel

Hark! The herald angels sing...

Hail the heav'n-born Prince of Peace!
Hail the Son of Righteousness!
Light and life to all He brings
Ris'n 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...
