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)

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

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

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
