Lyrics for Christmas Songs

Joy to the World
Psalm 98, Isaac Watts, Music: unknown


Joy to the world! the Lord is come; 
Let earth receive her King; 
Let every heart prepare Him room, 
and heaven and nature sing, 
and heaven and nature sing, 
and heaven, and heaven and nature sing. 

Joy to the earth! the Savior reigns; 
Let men their songs employ; 
while fields and floods, 
rocks, hills and plains 
Repeat the sounding joy, 
Repeat the sounding joy, 
Repeat, repeat the sounding joy. 

No more let sins and sorrows grow, 
nor thorns infest the ground; 
He comes to make His blessing flow 
far as the curse is found, 
far as the curse is found, 
far as, far as the curse is found. 

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.

Let It Snow!

Oh! the weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we've no place to go
Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

It doesn't show signs of stopping
And I brought some corn for popping
The lights are turned way down low
Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

When we finally kiss good night
How I'll hate going out in the storm
But if you'll really hold me tight
All the way home I'll be warm

The fire is slowly dying
And, my dear, we're still good byeing
But as long as you love me so
Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!

O Little Town of Bethlehem
Words: Phillips Brooks, 1867, Music: L.H. Redner, 1868


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 to-night. 

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. 

How silently, how silently, 
The wondrous gift is given! 
So God imparts to human hearts 
The blessings of his heaven. 
No ear may hear his coming, 
But in this world of sin, 
Where meek souls will receive him, still 
The dear Christ enters in. 

Where children pure and happy 
Pray to the blessed Child, 
Where misery cries out to thee, 
Son of the mother mild; 
Where charity stands watching 
And faith holds wide the door, 
The dark night wakes, the glory breaks, 
And Christmas comes once more. 

O holy Child of Bethlehem! 
Descend to us, we pray; 
Cast out our sin and enter in, 
Be born in us to-day. 
We hear the Christmas angels 
The great glad tidings tell; 
O come to us, abide with us, 
Our Lord Emmanuel!

Rocking Around The Christmas Tree
by Johnny Marks


Rockin' around the Christmas tree
At the Christmas party hop!
Mistletoe hung where you can see;
Ev'ry couple tries to stop.

Rockin' around the Christmas tree
Let the Christmas spirit ring!
Later we'll have some pun'kin pie
And we'll do some caroling.
You will get a sentimental feeling
When you hear
Voices singing "Let's be jolly.
Deck the halls with boughs of holly!"

Rockin' around the Christmas tree
have a happy holiday!
Ev'ryone dancing merrily
In the new old fashioned way!

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

Rudolf, the red-nosed reindeer
had a very shiny nose.
And if you ever saw him,
you would even say it glows.

All of the other reindeer
used to laugh and call him names.
They never let poor Rudolf
play in any reindeer games.

Then one foggy Christmas eve
Santa came to say:
"Rudolf with your nose so bright,
won't you guide my sleigh tonight?"

Then all the reindeer loved him
as they shouted out with glee,
Rudolf the red-nosed reindeer,
you'll go down in history!
