LYRICS FOR CHRISTINGLE SERVICES (3rd December) 
Little Donkey. 
Little donkey, little donkey
On the dusty road
Gotta keep on plodding onward
With your precious load.

Been a long time little donkey
Through the winters night
Don't give up now little donkey
Bethlehem's in sight.
Little donkey, little donkey
Had a heavy day
Little donkey, carry Mary safely on her way
Little donkey, carry Mary safely on her way. 
Little Donkey written by Eric Boswell (1959)
Away in a Manger. 
Away in a manger
No crib
for a bed
The little Lord Jesus
Lay down His sweet head. 
The cattle are lowing
The poor baby wakes
But little Lord Jesus
No crying He makes.
Be near me, Lord Jesus
I ask Thee to stay
Close by me forever
And love me I pray. 
Away in a Manger is in the public domain. 
Silent Night. 
Silent night, holy night
All is calm, and all is bright
Round yon Virgin Mother and Child
Holy infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace! 

Silent night, holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight.
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia,
Christ the Savior is born!
Christ the Savior is born!

 

Silent night, holy night!
Son of God love's pure light.
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth!

Silent Night is in the public domain. 

LYRICS FOR COMMUNITY CAROLS

We wish you a merry Christmas


We wish you a merry Christmas
We wish you a merry Christmas
We wish you a merry Christmas
And a happy new year 
Glad tidings we bring 
To you and your kin 
We wish you a merry Christmas 
And a happy new year. 

Angels from the realms of glory


Angels from the realms of glory
Wing your flight over all the earth
Ye, who sang Creation's story
Now proclaim Messiah's birth
Come and worship, come and worship
Worship Christ the newborn King

Shepherds in the fields abiding
Watching over your flocks by night
God with man is now residing
Yonder shines the Infant light
Come and worship, come and worship
Worship Christ the newborn King

Sages leave your contemplations
Brighter visions beam afar
Seek the great Desire of Nations
Ye have seen His natal star
Come and worship, come and worship
Worship Christ the newborn King

Saints before the altar bending
Watching long in hope and fear
Suddenly the Lord, descending,
In His temple shall appear
Come and worship, come and worship
Worship Christ the newborn King

All creation join in praising
God the Father Spirit Son 
Evermore your voices raising 
To th'eternal Three in One 
Come and worship, come and worship
Worship Christ the newborn King

Once in Royal David's City

 

Once in royal Davids 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 mean, and lowly
Lived on earth our Saviour holy

And our eyes at last shall see Him
Through His own redeeming love
For that child so dear and gentle
Is our Lord in heaven above
And He leads His children on
To the place where He is gone

Silent Night 

 

Silent night, Holy night

All is calm I'm singin' all is bright 
'Round yon virgin mother and Child 

Holy Infant so tender and mild

Sleep in heavenly peace 

Oh sleep in heavenly peace 

Silent night, holy night 

Shepherds quake oh at the sight 

Glories stream from heaven afar

Heavenly hosts sing alleluia 

Christ the Saviour is born 

Chrisr the Saviour is born

Silent night, holy night 

Son of God oh love's pure light 

Radiant beams from Thy holy face 

With the dawn of redeeming grace 

Jesus Lord at Thy birth 

Jesus Lord at Thy birth 

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 

O come let us adore Him 

O come let us adore Him 

O come let us adore Him 

Christ the Lord

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 

O come let us adore Him 

O come let us adore Him 

Christ the Lord

Jingle Bells 

 

Dashing through the snow, in a one-horse open sleigh, 

O'er the fields we go, laughing all the way. 

Bells on bob-tails ring, making spirits bright, 

Oh what fin it is to ride and sing a sleighing song tonight. 

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!

Oh what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh, hey! 

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!

Oh what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh, hey!
