Track Name: It's A Celebrate
Verse 1
Everyone knows, what time of year it is
(Gifts and trees, lots of family)
Gathering round, spreading some cheer
(peace and love is in the air)
We can't forget, what it all means
(why we celebrate, why we sing)
Miraculous birth, savior of all the world
(spread the news, tell everybody)

Angels announced, a virgin birth would astound them,
Star in the sky, so the wise men could find Him
Brought beautiful things, acknowledging Him as king
Time to celebrate, cause this changes everything

Chorus(x2)
Come on let's celebrate, His birth, His life, The King
Rejoice, the world has changed, He came to set us free

Verse 2
Everyone should know, what Christmas really means
(Hope and love, joy, grace abounding)
If you're not sure, I'll convey the story
(Let me tell the story)
God had a plan, to bring us back to Him
(Through His son, the holy lamb)
Humblest of births, a manger concealed his worth
(But that wouldn't last for long)

Became a man, traveled through the land
Healing, raising the dead, loving and forgiving sin
Started that night, a dream brought to the light
Light to the world, let's celebrate The Lord

Chorus(x2)

Vamp
Lift up your hands
Come on and celebrate
Come on celebrate

Chorus(x2)
Track Name: The Charlie Brown Medley (Christmastime is Here/Oh Christmas Tree/The Christmas Song)
Christmas time is here
We'll be drawing near
Oh, that we could always see
Such spirit through the year

O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
How richly God has decked thee!

O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!
How richly God has decked thee!
Thou bidst us true and faithful be,

And trust in God unchangingly.

O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!

How richly God has decked thee

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire

Jack Frost nipping on your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like Eskimos
Everybody knows...
And so I'm offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety-two
Although its been said many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you 
Track Name: God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
God rest ye merry, gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
Remember, Christ, our Saviour
Was born on Christmas day
To save us all from Satan's power
When we were gone astray
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

In Bethlehem, in Israel,
This blessed Babe was born
And laid within a manger
Upon this blessed morn
The which His Mother Mary
Did nothing take in scorn
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

From God our Heavenly Father
A blessed Angel came;
And unto certain Shepherds
Brought tidings of the same:
How that in Bethlehem was born
The Son of God by Name.
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

"Fear not then," said the Angel,
"Let nothing you affright,
This day is born a Saviour
Of a pure Virgin bright,
To free all those who trust in Him
From Satan's power and might."
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

The shepherds at those tidings
Rejoiced much in mind,
And left their flocks a-feeding
In tempest, storm and wind:
And went to Bethlehem straightway
The Son of God to find.
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

And when they came to Bethlehem
Where our dear Saviour lay,
They found Him in a manger,
Where oxen feed on hay;
His Mother Mary kneeling down,
Unto the Lord did pray.
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy

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 other doth deface.
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy
O tidings of comfort and joy
Track Name: Oh Holy Night
Oh Holy Night! The stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of our dear Saviour's birth.
Long lay the world in sin and error pining.
Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices!
Oh night divine, Oh night when Christ was born
Oh night divine, oh night, oh night divine

Truly He taught us to love one another,
His law is love and His gospel is peace.
The chains he shall break, for the slave is our brother.
And in his name all oppression shall cease.
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
Let all within us praise His holy name.
Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices!
Oh night divine, Oh night when Christ was born
Oh night divine, oh night, oh night divine

Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices!
Oh night divine, Oh night when Christ was born
Oh night divine, oh night, oh night divine
