So bright the star!
Timeless child,

Born of my body,
Reconciling God to man,
So bright the star
That shines tonight in the heavens!
Gloria in excelsis Deo!
Glad tidings the angels proclaim!
So bright the star!
What is this news the angels bring?
Who is this child who is Savior and King?
Let us run to greet the Savior!
So great our joy!
So bright the star!

Infant holy, infant lowly,
For his bed a cattle stall;
Oxen lowing, little knowing
Christ the babe is Lord of all.
Swift are winging angels singing,
Noels ringing, tidings bringing:
Christ the babe is Lord of all!
Christ the babe is Lord of all!

Flocks were sleeping, shepherds keeping
Vigil till the morning new;
Saw the glory, heard the story,
Tidings of a gospel true.
Thus rejoicing, free from sorrow,
Praises voicing, greet the morrow:
Christ the babe was born for you!
Christ the babe was born for you!

Good people all, this Christmastide,
Consider well and bear in mind
What our good God for us has done
In sending His beloved Son.
With Mary holy we should pray
To God with love this Christmas Day;
In Bethlehem upon that morn
There was a blessed Messiah born.

Near Bethlehem did shepherds keep
Their flocks of lambs and feeding sheep,
To whom God’s angels did appear,
Which put the shepherds in great fear.
“Prepare and go,” the angels said,
“To Bethlehem, be not afraid;
For there you’ll find this happy morn
A princely Babe, sweet Jesus born.”

When blossoms flowered mid the snows
Upon a winter night

Was born the child, the Christmas rose,
The king of love and light.
The angels sang, the shepherds sang,
The grateful earth rejoiced;

And at His blessed birth the stars
Their exultation voiced.

O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.

Again the heart with rapture glows
To greet the holy night

That gave the world its Christmas rose,
Its king of love and light.
Let every voice acclaim His name,
The grateful chorus swell;

From paradise to earth He came
That we with Him might dwell.

O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him,
O come let us adore Him,
Christ the Lord.

O beautiful star of Bethlehem,
Shining afar through shadows dim,
Giving a light for those who long have gone,
And guiding the wise men on their way
Unto the place where Jesus lay;
Beautiful star of Bethlehem, shine on.

Beautiful star of Bethlehem,
Shine upon us until the glory dawns;
Give us thy light to light the way
Unto the land of perfect day;
Beautiful star of Bethlehem, shine on.

O beautiful star, the hope of light,
Guiding the pilgrim through the night,
Over the mountain till the break of dawn,
And into the light of perfect day,
It will give out a lovely ray;
Beautiful star of Bethlehem, shine on.

Beautiful star of Bethlehem,
Shine upon us until the glory dawns;
Give us thy light to light the way
Unto the land of perfect day;
Beautiful star of Bethlehem, shine on. 

O beautiful star, the hope of rest
For the redeemed, the good and blessed,
Yonder in glory when the crown is won;
For Jesus is now that star divine,
Brighter and brighter He will shine;
Beautiful star of Bethlehem, shine on.

Beautiful star of Bethlehem,
Shine upon us until the glory dawns;
Give us thy light to light the way
Unto the land of perfect day;
Beautiful star of Bethlehem, shine on.

Now the holly bears a berry as white as the milk,
And Mary bore Jesus who was wrapped up in silk.
And Mary bore Jesus Christ our Saviour for to be,
And the first tree in the greenwood, it was the holly.

Now the holly bears a berry as green as the grass,
And Mary bore Jesus who died on the cross.
And Mary bore Jesus Christ our Saviour for to be,
And the first tree in the greenwood, it was the holly.

Now the holly bears a berry as black as the coal,
And Mary bore Jesus who died for us all.
And Mary bore Jesus Christ our Saviour for to be,
And the first tree in the greenwood, it was the holly.

Now the holly bears a berry, as blood is it red,
Then trust we our Saviour who rose from the dead.
And Mary bore Jesus Christ our Saviour for to be,
And the first tree in the greenwood, it was the holly.
