My Gift Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee

Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee
God of glory, Lord of love
Hearts unfold like flowers before Thee
Opening to the sun above

Melt the clouds of sin and sadness
Drive the dark of doubt away
Giver of immortal gladness
Fill us with the light of day

All thy works with joy surround Thee
Earth and Heaven reflect thy rays
Stars and angels sing around Thee
Center of unbroken praise

Field and forest, vale and mountain
Flowery medal flashing sea
Chanting bird and flowing fountain
Call us to rejoice in Thee

Mortals, join the happy chorus
Which the morning stars began
Father love is reigning o'er us
Brother love binds man to man
Ever singing, march we onward
Victors in the midst of strife
Joyful music leads us Sunward
In the triumph song of life

Joyful music leads us sunward
In the triumph song of life

Christ, the Lord

Let There Be Peace

Let there be peace
Peace to every nation
Let there be hope
For all the world to see
Let there be love
And joy to all the children
Let there be peace on earth
For you and me

If I had one wish
On my Christmas list
It wouldn't be for presents under my tree
There'll be
No more tears for crying
No more wars for fighting
And every mother's child would have enough to eat

So when I get down on my knees to pray
I ask the Lord above to light the way

And let there be peace (peace)
Peace to every nation
Let there be hope (hope)
For all the world to see
Let there be love (love)
And joy to all the children
Let there be peace on earth
For you and me, yeah

When I look in the mirror
All I wanna see
Is true compassion looking back at me
I wanna, I wanna love my neighbor
And be the hands and feet of Jesus
Take His love to the least of these

All I'm asking is to be the change
When I get down on my knees, I say

Let there be peace (peace)
Peace to every nation
Let there be hope (hope)
For all the world to see
Let there be love (love)
And joy to all the children
Let there be peace on earth
For you and me

Let there be peace (peace)
Let there be love (love)
Let there be joy (joy)
For you and me

Let there be peace (peace)
Let there be love (love)
Let there be joy (joy)
For you and me
For you and me

Oh, oh, oh

Let there be peace
Peace to every nation
Let there be hope (hope)
For all the world to see
Let there be love (love)
And joy to all the children
Let there be peace on earth
For you and me, yeah

(Peace, peace to every nation)
Let there be hope (hope)
For all the world to see
Let there be love (love)
And joy to all the children
Let there be peace on earth
For you and me, yeah
(Peace on earth)
For you and me

Let there be peace on earth
For you and me

Little Drummer Boy

Come, they told me
Pa rum pum pum pum
A newborn King to see
Pa rum pum pum pum
Our finest gifts we bring
Pa rum pum pum pum
To lay before the King
Pa rum pum pum pum
Rum pum pum pum
Rum pum pum pum
So, to honor Him
Pa-rum pum pum pum
When we come

Little baby
Pa rum pum pum pum
I am a poor boy, too
Pa rum pum pum pum
I have no gift to bring
Pa rum pum pum pum
That's fit to give our King
Pa rum pum pum pum
Rum pum pum pum
Rum pum pum pum
Shall I play for you?
Pa rum pum pum pum
On my drum

Mary nodded
Pa rum pum pum pum
The ox and lamb kept time

Sweet Baby Jesus

Mm, mm
I wonder were you cold that night
Lying there by Mary's side
Taking your first breath
I wonder were you scared to death

Fully human, fully God
Full of wonder and the blood
That one day you would shed to save the world
Tiny feet and tiny hands
With all the earth at their command
It must have felt strange to you

Sweet Baby Jesus
Come down to love us
To lie in a manger
So far from home
You could have left us
Helpless and so lost
But you chose to save us
Sweet Baby Jesus

The first time Mary held you close
All wrapped up in tattered clothes
Did you see tears fall from her eyes
Just a mother holding her first child

Ooh
Fully human, fully God
Full of wonder and the blood
That one day you would shed to save the world
Tiny feet and tiny hands
With all the earth at their command
Oh, it must have been strange to you

Sweet Baby Jesus
Come down to love us
To lie in a manger
So far from home
Oh, you could have left us
Helpless and so lost
But you chose to save us
Sweet Baby Jesus
Mmhmm

Sweet Baby Jesus
Come down to love us
To lie in a manger
To die on a cross
Oh, you could have left us
Helpless and so, so lost
But you chose to save us
Sweet Baby Jesus

Sweet Baby Jesus

Hallelujah

Yeah,
Break out the tinsel
Unpack the lights
Ooh, in the winter's chill
Let the candles light the night up from the windowsills
Ooh, as I draw you near
And we whisper all the sweet sounds only we can hear
On the coldest evening in this December
I hold you in the heat of the glowing embers

Let the world stand still, the church bells ring
Silent night as the angels sing
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Let the magic warm the moonlit air
Hear the choirs join in singing everywhere
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Ooh, let there be peace on earth
Let the lonely join together, let them know their worth
Ooh, let the children know
There's a brighter day ahead, let's hold on to hope
And on the coldest evening in this December
Let us pray the spirit of love will linger

Oh, let the world stand still, the church bells ring
Silent night as the angels sing
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Let the magic warm the moonlit air
Hear the choirs join in singing everywhere
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Glory, glory, glory I'm so glad to have you here
And may this Christmas moment last for years

Let the world stand still, the church bells ring
Silent night as the angels sing
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Let the magic warm the moonlit air
Hear the choirs join in singing everywhere
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
We're about to bring on
the merry and bright,
I hear those jingle bells
in the air,
ringing out the sound of joy everywhere

It's the season we've been waiting for
(waiting, don't keep me waiting)
Can't you feel it knocking at your door?
Knock knock, it's knocking at your door.

Love pouring out like the
snow from the sky
snuggled up together siting by the fire,
oh it's magical, it's my favorite time

Pretty little wishes tied up in a bow
and every little kiss is like we're
underneath the mistletoe.
It's music to my ear,
Christmas is my favorite time of year.

Stockings on chimney's
angels on trees,
sugar and cinnamon
it's the little things,
blankets and movies,
in black and white,
together they make
up this colorful life.

It's the season we've been waiting for
(waiting, don't keep me waiting)
Can't you feel it knocking at your door?
Knock knock, it's knocking at your door.

Love pouring out like the
snow from the sky
snuggled up together siting by the fire,
oh it's magical, it's my favorite time.

Christmas is my favorite time of year,
Christmas is my favorite time of year.

Oh Don't Keep me waiting,
Love pouring out like the
snow from the sky
snuggled up together siting by the fire,
oh it's magical, it's my favorite time.

Pretty little wishes tied up in a bow
and every little kiss is like we're
underneath the mistletoe.
It's music to my ear,
Christmas is my favorite time of year.

Christmas is my favorite time of year,
Christmas is my favorite time of year.

O Holy Night

O holy night
The stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear Savior'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
O night divine
O night when Christ was born

O night divine
O night
O night divine

Truly He taught us to love one another
His law is love and His gospel is peace
Chains shall He break, for His child 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

Christ is the Lord, the name forever praise we
Noel
Noel

O night
O night divine
Noel
Noel
O night
O holy night

Mary, Did You Know?

Mmhm
La da da da
Mm

Mary, did you know that your baby boy
Would one day walk on water?
Mary, did you know that your baby boy
Would save our sons and daughters?
Did you know that your baby boy
Has come to make you new?
This child that you've delivered
Will soon deliver you

Mary, did you know that your baby boy
Would give sight to a blind man?
Mary, did you know that your baby boy
Would calm the storm with his hand?
Did you know that your baby boy
Has walked where angels trod?
And when you kiss your little baby
You've kissed the face of God
Mary, did you know?
Mm
Oh Mary, did you know?

The blind will see
The deaf will hear
And the dead will live again
The lame will leap
The dumb will speak
The praises of the lamb

O Mary, did you know that your baby boy
Is Lord of all creation?
Mary, did you know that your baby boy
Would one day rule the nations?
Did you know that your baby boy
Is heaven's Perfect Lamb?
The sleeping child you're holding
Is the Great I am

O Mary, did you know
Ooh ooh
Mary, did you know?
Mmhm
Mary, did you know?

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
From now on
Our troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the Yuletide gay
From now on
Our troubles will be miles away

Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more

Through the years we all will be together
If the Fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now

Through the years we all will be together
If the Fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now
A merry little Christmas

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 sky
Looked down where He lay
The little Lord Jesus
Asleep on the hay

The cattle are lowing
The poor Baby wakes
But little Lord Jesus
No crying He makes

I love Thee, Lord Jesus
Look down from the sky
And stay by my side
'Til 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 take us to heaven
To live with Thee there

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
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 the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth

Yeah,
Break out the tinsel
Unpack the lights
We're about to bring on
