Carols Lyrics

1. JOY TO THE WORLD

Joy to the world, the Lord is come,

Let earth receive her King

Let ev'ry heart prepare Him room

And heaven and nature sing, and heaven and nature sing

And heaven and heaven, and nature sing

 

Joy to the world, the Savior reigns, let all their songs employ

While fields and floods, rocks hills and plains

Repeat the sounding joy, repeat the sounding joy

Repeat, repeat the sounding joy

 

Chorus

Joy unspeakable joy, an overflowing well, no tongue can tell

Joy unspeakable joy, rises in my soul, never lets me go

 

He rules the world, with truth and grace, and makes the nations prove

The glories of His righteousness

And wonders of His love, and wonders of His love

And wonders wonders of His love

 

2. ANGELS WE HAVE HEARD ON HIGH

Angels we have heard on high

Sweetly singing o'er the plains

And the mountains in reply

Echoing their joyous strains

 

Gloria, in excelsis Deo

Gloria, praise the King of heaven

 

Come to Bethlehem and see

Him whose birth the angels sing,

Come, adore on bended knee,

Christ the Lord, the newborn King.

 

3. MARY’S BOY CHILD

Long time ago in Bethlehem, so the Holy Bible said

Mary's boy child Jesus Christ, was born on Christmas Day

 

CHORUS

Hark, now hear the angels sing, a new king born today

And man will live for evermore, because of Christmas Day

Trumpets sound and Angels sing, listen to what they say

That Man will live forever more, because of Christmas Day

 

While shepherds watch their flocks by night

They see a bright new shining star

They hear a choir sing, the music seemed to come from afar

Now Joseph and his wife Mary, come to Bethlehem that night

Them found no place to born the child, not a single room was in sight

 

By and by they found a little nook in a stable all forlorn

And in a manger cold and dark, Mary’s little boy was born

Long time ago in Bethlehem, so the Holy Bible said

Mary's boy child Jesus Christ, was born on Christmas Day
 

4. HARK THE HERALD

Hark! the herald angels sing

Glory to the new-born King

Peace on earth and mercy mild

God and sinners reconciled

 

Joyful, all ye nations, rise

Join the triumph of the skies

With angelic host proclaim

Christ is born in Bethlehem

Hark! the herald angels sing

Glory to the new-born King

 

Christ, by highest heaven adored

Christ, the everlasting Lord

Late in time behold him come

Offspring of the Virgin's womb

 

Veiled in flesh, the God Head see

Hail the incarnate Deity

Pleased as man with men to dwell

Jesus, our Emmanuel!

Hark! the herald angels sing

Glory to the new-born King

 

Hail the Heaven-born Prince of Peace

Hail the Son of righteousness

Light and life to all He brings

Risen with healing in His wings

 

Mild He lays His glory by

Born that man no more may die

Born to raise the sons of earth

Born to give them second birth

Hark! the herald angels sing

Glory to the new-born King

 

5. RUDOLPH

You know Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen,

Comet and Cupid and Donner and Blitzen,

But do you recall

The most famous reindeer of all

 

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

Had a very shiny nose

And if you ever saw it

You would even say it glows

All of the other reindeer

Used to laugh and call him names

They never let poor Rudolph

Play in any reindeer games

 

Then one foggy Christmas Eve

Santa came to say

Rudolph with your nose so bright,

Won't you guide my sleigh tonight

 

Then all the reindeer loved him

As they shouted out with glee,

Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer,

You'll go down in history

 

6. JINGLE BELLS / AUSSIE JINGLE BELLS

Dashing through the snow

On a one horse open sleigh

Over the fields we go, laughing all the way

Bells on bob tail ring, making spirits bright

What fun it is to laugh and sing, a sleighing song tonight

 

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way

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

Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way

Oh, what fun it is to ride

In a one horse open sleigh

 

Dashing through the bush in a rusty Holden ute

Kicking up the dust, esky in the boot

Kelpie by my side, singing Christmas songs

It's summer time and I am in my singlet, shorts and thongs

 

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way

Christmas in Australia on a scorching summer's day (hey!)

Jingle bells, jingle bells, Christmas time is beaut

Oh, what fun it is to ride in a rusty Holden ute

 

Engine's getting hot, we dodged the kangaroos

Swaggie climbs aboard, he is welcome too

All the family is there, sitting by the pool

Christmas day the Aussie way by the barbecue

 

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way

Christmas in Australia on a scorching summer's day (hey!)

Jingle bells, jingle bells, Christmas time is beaut

Oh, what fun it is to ride in a rusty Holden ute

 

Come the afternoon, Grandpa has a doze

The kids and Uncle Bruce, are swimming in their clothes

The time comes round to go, we take a family snap

And pack the car and all shoot through before the washing up

 

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way

Christmas in Australia on a scorching summer's day (hey!)

Jingle bells, jingle bells, Christmas time is beaut

Oh, what fun it is to ride in a rusty Holden ute

 

7. OH LITTLE TOWN OF BETHLEHEM

Oh little town of Bethlehem

How still we see thee lie

Above the dark and dreamless sky

   

The silent stars go by

For in the dark sky shineth  

The everlasting light          

The hopes and fears of all the years

Are met in thee tonight

  

For Christ is born of Mary,

And gathered all above

While mortals sleep the Angels keep

Their watch of wondering love

      

O morning stars together,

Proclaim the Holy birth

And praises sing, to God the King,

And peace to men, on earth.

O Holy child of Bethlehem,

Descend on us we pray;

  

Cast out our sin and enter in

Be born in us today.

We hear the Christmas angels,

Their great glad tidings tell,

  

O come to us, abide in us,

Our Lord, Emanuel.
 

8. THE FIRST NOEL

The first noel, the angels did say

Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay

In fields where they lay keeping their sheep

On a cold winter's night that was so deep

 

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel

Born is the King of Israel

 

They looked up and saw a star

Shining in the east, beyond them far

And to the earth, it gave great light

And so it continued both day and night

 

The King is born, The King is born, The King is born

 

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel

Born is the king of Israel

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel

Born is the king of Israel

 

Let angels rejoice,

They all bow before Him, the King is born

 

9. LITTLE DRUMMER BOY

Come they told me

A new born king to see

Our finest gifts we bring

To lay before the king

 

So to honour him, when we come

 

Little baby

I am a poor boy too

I have no gift to bring

That's fit to give a king

 

Shall I play for you, on my drum

 

Mary nodded

The ox and lamb kept time

I played my drum for him

I played my best for him

 

Then he smiled at me

Me and my drum

 

10. AWAY IN A MANGER

Away in a manger no crib for a bed

The little Lord Jesus lay down His sweet head

The stars in the sky looked down where they lay

The little Lord Jesus asleep in the hay

 

The cattle are lowing the baby awakes

But little Lord Jesus no crying He makes

I love Thee Lord Jesus look down from the sky

And stay by my side until 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 fit us for heaven to live with Thee there

 

11. 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 Hallelujah

Christ our Savior is born

Christ our 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

 

12. O 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

 

CHORUS

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

All glory in the highest

 

Yea, Lord, we greet Thee

Born this happy morning

O Jesus, to thee be all glory given

Word of the Father

Now in flesh appearing
