Shake off the snow, decorate the tree Hang grace and mercy on the boughs Compassion shines brighter than misery Put up some kindness if you can somehow Let the Spirit wind blow, let the Spirit snow fall Let the Spirit flame burn deep within Changes mourning into dancing again and again Here's hopin' Christmas ... Here's hopin' Christmas gets real tonight What happened long ago can bring us down The past is a ball and chain When old memories shove us around A little joy is just the thing Gonna make a break and run like the wind A voice like rushing water calling to me Throw down the walls holding me in It's for freedom that he sent me free Beat the swords into ploughshares Revolution has begun Invitation to the great beyond In a kingdom outshining the sun

In Bethlehem 05:07
Hark the herald angels sing, glory to the newborn King Peace on earth and mercy mild, God and sinners reconciled Joyful, all ye nations, rise, join the anthems of the skies With the angelic host proclaim, Christ is born in Bethlehem Joy to the world, the Lord is come Joy to the world, the Lord is surely come O little town of Bethlehem how still we see thee lie Above thy deep and dreamless sleep the silent stars go by Yet in thy dark streets shineth the everlasting Light The hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight O come all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant sing O come to Bethlehem, come behold Him born the King Come to Bethlehem and see Him whose birth the angels sing Come adore on bended knee Christ the Lord the newborn King

Radio 03:52
I'll get the radio Find us a happy song Share some of that peace on earth Send some of that joy along It doesn't seem much but the little I do Amounts to a lot helpin' someone through Let's pass Christmas time around Just a smile or patience to wait Like the snow fallin' down it accumulates Let's pass Christmas time around Love and kindness grow where you are They multiply and they go very far Let's pass Christmas time around A great light has shone and it's marvellous It radiates and it shines on us Let's pass Christmas time around

O come, O come Emmanuel And ransom captive Israel That mourns in lonely exile here Until the Son of God appear Rejoice, rejoice! Emmanuel Shall come to thee, O Israel O come Thou Dayspring come and cheer Our spirits by Thine advent here And drive away the shades of night And pierce the clouds and bring us light Rejoice, rejoice! Emmanuel Shall come to thee, O Israel O Come, Desire of Nations, bind All people in one heart and mind Bid envy strife and quarrels cease Fill all the world with heaven’s peace Rejoice, rejoice! Emmanuel Shall come to thee, O Israel Rejoice... rejoice...

Light up the darkness, make it bright Jesus only, everlasting light Transforming love doin' it right Light up the darkness, make it bright Started with a promise got to understand The Lord's salvation is not made with hands Born of a virgin it was prophesied Light up the darkness, make it bright Immanuel, Jesus took on flesh Knows what it's like to be one of us Don't where a suit all red and white Light up the darkness, make it bright Peace on earth will surely come 'Cause of who He is and what He's done Sweet forgiveness, eternal life Light up the darkness, make it bright What do you mean there's more to do You're in shadow, light not gettin' through Saved by grace, nothing more to write Light up the darkness, make it bright

It's that season ... shhh ... don'y say His name Get sentimental, but deny why He came Still the poor suffer while we play this game Got no excuse that we can claim Pretend to be shepherds or wise men who've come Bow and do homage to vague Christendom Still the poor suffer, but what have we done Hear their crying and just play dumb Like a baby needs a mother's love Like the earth needs rain from above Like the silver moon needs the purple night I need You to show me how to get it right Compassion doesn't live in a lukewarm heart Nothin's gonna change without a spark Make the flame grow into a wildfire Teach me to love, make it my desire Will this Christmas pass like the others before Coloured lights and carols and crowds in the stores We let the poor suffer and their pain ignore While the King who's come humbly waits at the door We justify anything, just call it God's plan Lay foundations in the shifting sand We see the poor suffer but don't lift a hand Our hearts are empty but our barns are crammed

What Child is this who laid to rest On Mary's lap is sleeping? Whom angels greet with anthems sweet While shepherds watch are keeping? This, this is Christ the King Whom shepherds guard and angels sing Haste, haste to bring him laud The Babe, the Son of Mary How good of You, my Saviour To come from heaven above O take away my sinning Protect me with Thy love
8.
Who is He in yonder stall, at whose feet the shepherds fall? Who is He in deep distress, fasting in the wilderness? ‘Tis the Lord! O wondrous story! ‘Tis the Lord! The King of Glory! At His feet we humbly fall And crown Him Lord of All Who is He the people bless for His words of gentleness? Who is He to whom they bring all their sick and sorrowing? Who is He that stands and weeps at the grave where Lazarus sleeps? Who is He the gathering throng greet with loud triumphant song? Lo, at midnight who is He, prays at dark Gethsemane? Who is He on yonder tree dies in grief and agony? Who is He who from the grave comes to succour, help and save? Who is He who from His throne rules through all the worlds alone?

Silent Night 04:32
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 Saviour is born ... Christ the Saviour 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

Standing in the street, I watch the traffic flow Smell the fresh pine trees, take one for the kids back home A very special night, noticed by a few A star it shone so bright for a baby boy born new The beginning of a life in a tired world so torn Hope and love He brings as a servant and a king Let's celebrate, let's all be glad Sing out the great joy we have God's gift of peace, God's gift of love Jesus is born, God's gift to to us In the busy street I see the lonely hearts that cry While others smile and laugh, singing carols, passing by Hear the Army tambourines as they jingle out "please help" And it jogs my memory as to how it must have felt Out that very special night, one that changed the world Seemed nothing could go right -- they were homeless, poor and cold The beginning of a life in a tired world so torn Hope and love He brings as a servant and a king

Imagine that ... no room Tired of travelling and the baby’s due soon Say what you like, somewhere in this there’s love Whew-ee, sure smells like a barn But the hay in the trough'll keep the baby warm Say what you like, somewhere in this there’s love The sound of that choir – c’mon, was that real? The words they sang, the wonder they feel ... Say what you like, somewhere in this there’s love A star appeared, an infant came Nothin' ever would be the same What child is this that means us well? Right here with us ... Immanuel Hired hands gaze through the door Why in heaven would they kneel down for? Say what you like, somewhere in this there’s love Never seen in any Christmas card Passion so deep, a journey so hard Say what you like, somewhere in this there’s love A star appeared, an infant came Nothin' ever would be the same What child is this that means us well? Right here with us ... Immanuel What child is this that means us well? Right here with us ... Immanuel So it goes to an upper room A garden, a cross, an empty tomb Say what you like, somewhere in this there’s love Say what you like, somewhere in this there’s love Say what you like, somewhere in this there’s love ...

Unpack the decorations, it's that time of year again Red and green and mistletoe and chubby little men The presents and the tinsel and the candles burning bright Can't hide the simple truth that really happened on that night O Wonderful Counselor, longed-for Prince of Peace Immanuel, God is here, His Kingdom will not cease Angelic proclamation, joy and peace on earth Celebrate it one and all, the Humble Jesus' birth Shall we join the shepherds and risk humility Believe the news and search for Him and fall down on our knees? The reason for the season, incarnate Deity It's Jesus, yes! It's Jesus, and Jesus died for me Isn't in a manger, isn't in an upper room Isn't hanging on a cross or dead inside a tomb He arose, ascended up, He's coming back for sure The Merry Christmas in the gold and frankincense and myrrh

He didn't stay a baby, baby grew into a man Didn't stay a baby, baby grew into a man Take me with You, Jesus Don't leave me here in Bethlehem Safe stayin' in the manger, nothin' safe 'bout the Son of Man Prob'ly safer in that manger, nothin' safe 'bout the Son of Man I'm scared in some ways Jesus But it's worse here in Bethlehem He was born a King, but He's a freshly slaughtered Lamb He was born a King, but He's a freshly slaughtered Lamb Wanna be with You in Your Kingdom, Lord Not cast away in Bethlehem Somethin' 'bout that blood, though, keep comin' up again Somethin' 'bout that blood, though, keep comin' up again and again Without You dyin' on that cross Ain't no escape from Bethlehem Take me with You Jesus 'Til the wheels fall off and burn Don't leave me stuck behind here Got nowhere else to turn An old and ageless mystery, long way to the Promised Land An old and ageless mystery, long, long way to the Promised Land Long as I follow Jesus Won't be left behind in Bethlehem It's love and it's forgiveness, sometimes hard to understand It's love and it's forgiveness, lead me to the Promised Land Take me with You, Jesus Don't leave me here in Bethlehem

The night was cold and I was tired and lonely But I could not sleep So I huddled in my coat beside the fire And wiled away the time by counting sheep The stars went shining on serenely Like they did before my life was torn apart And the wind as it howled across the hillside Found an echo in my bitter lonely heart I thought about the wrongs I had done About all my stubbornness had cost And I wondered if my life would ever change If I’d retrieve the things the I had lost Then the night – the night it broke wide open I had never in my life been more afraid There were ranks of angels blazing with glory And this is what I swear I heard them say Peace ... peace on the earth Peace and goodwill to men Peace ... in your heart A King is born to you in Bethlehem I left the sheep and ran to find Him It was just the way the angel had said: A baby, wrapped in scraps and rags With a manger for His bed Now they said He was born a king But He surely did not look the part And I’ve tried, but I cannot explain it All I know is He healed my broken heart Peace ... peace on the earth Peace and goodwill to men Peace ... in your heart A Saviour is born in Bethlehem Peace ... peace on the earth Peace and goodwill to men Peace ... in your heart From the Child who was born in Bethlehem From the Baby who was born in Bethlehem From the Child who was born in Bethlehem
