Away In A Manger
Lyrics by John McFarland

Away in a manger,
No crib for His 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.

Be near me Lord Jesus,
I ask you to stay,
Beside me forever,
And guide me I pray.
Bless all the dear children
With your tender care,
And take us to heaven
To be with you there.

Baby Lying in a Manger
to the tune of "Ode to Joy" (Beethoven's Fifth Symphony)

Baby lying in a manger,
Wrapped in strips of cloth tonight,
You are King of all creation.
You're the ruler of my life.
Your home should be the finest palace,
Finer far than eyes have seen.
But instead you're in a stable,
Slumbering in a bed of hay.

Baby lying in a manger,
You left Heaven's throne for me.
Came to earth a helpless infant,
Came to earth to die for me.
Like the angels who told of Your birth,
Like the shepherds on bended knee.
Precious Babe, now risen Savior,
I bow down and worship thee.

Christmas Bells
Author Unknown
to the tune of "Jingle Bells"

Christmas bells, Christmas bells,
Ring them all the day.
Tell the world that Jesus came
To take our sins away!
Christmas bells, Christmas bells,
Ring them all the day.
Tell the world that Jesus came
To take our sins away!

to the tune of "Bingo"

Christmas is a special day,
The birthday of a King,
The birthday of King Jesus.

Jesus Christ Was Born
to the tune of "The Farmer in the Dell"

Jesus Christ was born,
Jesus Christ was born,
Long ago in Bethlehem,
Jesus Christ was born.

He had a manger bed,
He had a manger bed,
No crib so soft, no blanket fine,
He had a manger bed.

Angels told of his birth,
Angels told of his birth,
They filled the sky, lifted their voices high,
Angels told of his birth.

Shepherds left their flocks,
Shepherds left their flocks,
Came to see, kneeled on bended knee,
Shepherds left their flocks.

Wisemen traveled far,
Wisemen traveled far,
Bearing gifts and following a star.
Wisemen traveled far.

What a holy night,
What a precious sight,
A baby born king of heav'n and earth,
Lord of Love and Light.

Nine Little Shepherds
to the tune of "Ten Little Indians"

One little, two little, three little shepherds,
Four little, five little, six little shepherds
Seven little, eight little, nine little shepherds,
Kneeling at the manger.

Nine little, eight little, seven little shepherds,
Six little, five little, four little shepherd,
Three little, two little, one little shepherd,
Kneeling at the manger.

Oh, Do You Hear?
to the tune of "The Muffin Man"

Oh, do you hear the Christmas bells?
The Christmas bells? The Christmas bells?
Oh, do you hear the Christmas bells
That ring out loud and clear?

They tell the world a Savior's born!
A Savior's born! A Savior's born!
They tell the world a Savior's born!
Proclaim it far and near!

Ring, Ring, Ring the Bells
to the tune of "Row, Row, Row Your Boat"

Ring, ring, ring the bells,
Ring them loud and clear.
Tell the people everywhere
That Christmas time is near.

Silent Night
Lyrics by Josef Mohr

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.

Twinkle, Twinkle, Christmas Star
to the tune of "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star"

Twinkle, twinkle Christmas star,
Tell the world the Savior's born.
By your glowing light so strong,
Wise men made their journey long,
'Til they found where Christ did lay,
In a manger filled with hay.
