Track Name: Silent Night
Silent night holy night
All is calm 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
Heav'nly hosts sing alleluia
Christ the Saviour is born
Christ the Saviour is born

Silent night holy night
Son of God love's pure light
Radiant beams from the holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus Lord at Thy birth
Jesus Lord at Thy birth
Track Name: Apostles' Creed
I believe in God the Father,
Maker of heav’n and earth.
And in Jesus Christ, our Savior,
God’s own Son, of matchless worth;
By the Spirit was conceived
Of the virgin Mary born,
He in whom I have believed;
God Almighty three in one.

Suffered under Pontious Pilate,
Crucified, for me he died.
Laid within the grave so silent,
Gates of hell he opened wide;
For the stone-sealed tomb was empty;
On the third day he arose;
Into heaven made his entry;
Mighty conquer’r of his foes.

At God’s right hand he is seated,
Till his coming, as he said;
Final judgement will be meted
To the living and the dead;
I confess the Holy Spirit,
Who was sent through Christ the son
To apply salvations merit;
God, the Spirit Three in One.

I believe the church of Jesus,
Universal e’er remains;
We are one through all the ages
In communion of the saints.
I believe sins are forgiven,
That our bodies will be raised
To eternal life in glory,
Ever let his name be praised.
Track Name: Puer Natus Est - A Child Is Born
A child is born unto us a son has been given,
A child is born unto us a son has been given.

Upon whose shoulder power rests;
of his peace will be no end.
Upon whose shoulder power rests;
of his peace will be no end.

He shall be called Almighty God,
Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.
He shall be called Almighty God,
Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.

My soul will magnify the Lord,
Who has done mighty things for me.
My soul will magnify the Lord,
Who has done mighty things for me.
Track Name: 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 mean, and lowly,
Lived on earth our Savior 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 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;
Where like stars His children crowned
All in white shall wait around.
Track Name: Hail To The Lord's Annointed
Words: James Mont­gom­ery, 1821

Hail to the Lord’s anointed, great David’s greater Son!
Hail in the time appointed, His reign on earth begun!
He comes to break oppression, to set the captive free;
To take away transgression and rule in equity.

He shall come down like showers upon the fruitful earth;
Love, joy, and hope, like flowers, spring in His path to birth.
Before Him, on the mountains, shall peace, the herald, go,
And righteousness, in fountains, from hill to valley flow.

Kings shall fall down before Him, and gold and incense bring;
All nations shall adore Him, His praise all people sing;
For He shall have dominion o’er river, sea and shore,
Far as the eagle’s pinion or dove’s light wing can soar.

O’er every foe victorious, He on His throne shall rest;
From age to age more glorious, all blessing and all blest.
The tide of time shall never His covenant remove;
His Name shall stand forever, His Name to us is Love.
Track Name: I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day
Words: Hen­ry W. Long­fel­low, 1864

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

And thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along the unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

Till ringing, singing on its way
The world revolved from night to day,
A voice, a chime, a chant sublime
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

And in despair I bowed my head
“There is no peace on earth,” I said,
“For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men.”

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
“God is not dead, nor doth He sleep;
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail
With peace on earth, good will to men.”
Track Name: O Sing A Song Of Bethlehem
O sing a song of Bethlehem,
Of shepherds watching there,
And of the news that came to them
From angels in the air.
The light that shone on Bethlehem
Fills all the world today;
Of Jesus’ birth and peace on earth
The angels sing alway.

O sing a song of Nazareth,
Of sunny days of joy;
O sing of fragrant flowers’ breath,
And of the sinless Boy.
For now the flowers of Nazareth
In every heart may grow;
Now spreads the fame of His dear Name
On all the winds that blow.

O sing a song of Galilee,
Of lake and woods and hill,
Of Him Who walked upon the sea
And bade the waves be still.
For though like waves on Galilee,
Dark seas of trouble roll,
When faith has heard the Master’s Word,
Falls peace upon the soul.

O sing a song of Calvary,
Its glory and dismay,
Of Him Who hung upon the tree,
And took our sins away.
For He Who died on Calvary
Is risen from the grave,
And Christ, our Lord, by Heaven adored,
Is mighty now to save.
