1. 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 Saviour 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 blessings 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. 

2. O 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. 

Sing, choirs of angels 
Sing in exultation, 
Sing, all ye citizens of heav’n above: 
Glory to God, 
Glory in the highest! 

3. 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 pow’r 
When we were gone astray.

Oh, tidings of comfort and joy 
Comfort and joy, 
Oh tidings of comfort and joy. 

From God our heav’nly Father 
A blessèd angel came, 
And unto certain shepherds 
Brought tidings of the same, 
How that in Bethlehem was born 
The Son of God, by name.

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 pow’r and might. 

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 
This blessèd babe to find. 

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. 

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 others doth deface. 

4. Away in a manger

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed, 
The little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head; 
The stars in the bright skies looked down where He lay, 
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay. 

 The cattle are lowing, the Baby awakes, 
But little Lord Jesus no crying He makes. 
I love Thee, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky 
and stay by my side until morning is nigh. 

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

5. Joy has dawned upon the world

Joy has dawned upon the world, 
Promised from creation. 
God’s salvation now unfurled. 
Hope for ev’ry nation. 
Not with fanfares from above, 
Not with scenes of glory, 
But a humble gift of love, 
Jesus, born of Mary. 

Come and worship
Worship Christ the new-born! 
Come and worship
Worship, Christ the new-born King! 

Sounds of wonder fill the sky, 
With the songs of angels, 
As the mighty Prince of Life 
Shelters in a stable. 
Hands that set each star in place, 
Shaped the earth in darkness,
Cling now to a mother’s breast, 
Vuln’rable and helpless. 

Shepherds bow before the Lamb, 
Gazing at the glory. 
Gifts of men from distant lands, 
Prophesy the story: 
Gold—a King is born today, 
Incense—God is with us, 
Myrrh—His death will make a way, 
And by His blood He’ll win us. 

Son of Adam, Son of heaven, 
Given as a ransom. 
Reconciling God and man, 
Christ, our mighty champion. 
What a Saviour! What a Friend! 
What a glorious myst’ry! 
Once a babe in Bethlehem, 
Now the Lord of hist’ry!

6. Once in royal David’s city 

Once in royal David’s city 
Stood a lowly cattle-shed, 
Where a mother laid her Baby 
In a manger for His bed. 
Mary was that mother mild, 
Jesus Christ her little Child. 

He came down to earth from heaven 
Who is God and Lord of all, 
And His shelter was a stable, 
And His cradle was a stall. 
With the poor, and meek, and lowly, 
Lived on earth our Saviour holy. 

For He is our childhood’s pattern: 
Day by day like us He grew; 
He was little, weak, and helpless;  
Tears and smiles like us He knew; 
And He feeleth for our sadness,  
And He shareth in our gladness. 

And our eyes at last shall see Him, 
Through His own redeeming love; 
For that Child so dear and gentle 
Is our Lord in heav’n above; 
And He leads His children on 
To the place where He is gone. 

Not in that poor lowly stable, 
With the oxen standing by, 
We shall see Him, but in heaven, 
Set at God’s right hand on high; 
When like stars His children crowned 
All in white shall wait around. 

7. Hark, the herald angels sing

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 th’angelic hosts 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 the Virgin’s womb. 
Veiled in flesh, the Godhead see! 
Hail th’incarnate Deity! 
Pleased as man with men to dwell 
Jesus, our Emmanuel.

Hail, the heav’n-born Prince of Peace! 
Hail, the Sun 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.
