Hymnal 1982 (H265)   An Angel Said to Mary

Piano     PARTS
1. The angel Gabriel from heaven came,
his wings as drifted snow, his eyes as flame;
"All hail," said he, "thou lowly maiden Mary,
most highly favored lady," Gloria!
2. "For know a blessed Mother thou shalt be,
all generations laud and honor thee,
thy Son shall be Emmanuel, by seers foretold,
most highly favored lady," Gloria!
3. Then gentle Mary meekly bowed her head,
"To me be as it pleaseth God," she said,
"my soul shall laud and magnify his holy Name."
Most highly favored lady, Gloria!
4. Of her, Emmanuel, the Christ, was born
in Bethlehem, all on a Christmas morn,
and Christian folk throughout the world will ever say--
"Most highly favored lady," Gloria!



Mary did you know?

PARTS

Words and Music by Mark Lowry and Buddy Greene. Arranged by Tom Fettke

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 delivered
Will soon deliver you?

Mary, did you know that your baby boy
Will give sight to a blind man?
Mary, did you know that your baby boy
Would calm a 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?

The blind will see, the deaf will hear,
The dead will live again,
The lame will leap, the dumb will speak
The praises of the Lamb!

Mary, did you know that your baby boy
Is Lord all creation?
Mary, did you know that your baby boy
Will one day rule the nations?
Did you know that your baby boy
Was Heaven’s perfect Lamb,
And the sleeping Child you’re holding
Is the great, the Great I AM?
Oh, Mary, Mary, did you know?

Hymnal 1982 (H110)   The Snow Lay on the Ground

Piano     PARTS


1. The snow lay on the ground, the stars shone bright,

when Christ our Lord was born on Christmas night.
Venite adoremus Dominum.
Venite adoremus Dominum.
Refrain:
Venite adoremus Dominum.
Venite adoremus Dominum.

2. 'Twas Mary, daughter pure of holy Anne,
that brought into this world the God made man.
She laid him in a stall at Bethlehem;
the ass and oxen shared the roof with them. (Refrain)

3. Saint Joseph, too, was by to tend the child;
to guard him, and protect his mother mild;
the angels hovered round, and sang this song,
Venite adoremus Dominum. (Refrain)

4. And thus that manger poor became a throne;
for he whom Mary bore was God the Son.
O come, then, let us join the heavenly host;
to praise the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. (Refrain)


LEVAS (L024), There’s a Star in the East

Piano     PARTS

1 There’s a star in the east on Christmas morn,
Rise up shepherd and follow,
It will lead to the place where the Christ was born,
Rise up shepherd and follow.

Refrain:
Follow, follow,
Rise up shepherd and follow,
Follow the Star of Bethlehem,
Rise up shepherd and follow.

2 If you take good heed to the angel’s words,
Rise up shepherd and follow,
You’ll forget your flocks, you’ll forget your herds,
Rise up shepherd and follow. [Refrain]




Hymnal 1982 (H101)   Away in a Manger

Piano     PARTS

1. Away in a manger, no crib for his bed,
the little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head.
The stars in the bright sky looked down where he lay;
the little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay.

2. 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.

3. 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.



Hymnal 1982 (H094)   While Shepherds Watch Their Flocks By Night

Piano     PARTS

1. While shepherds watched their flocks by night,
all seated on the ground,
the angel of the Lord came down,
and glory shone around.

2. "Fear not," said he, for mighty dread
had seized their troubled mind;
"Glad tidings of great joy I bring
to you and all mankind.

3. "To you, in David's town, this day
is born of David's line
a Savior, who is Christ the Lord;
and this shall be the sign:

4. "The heavenly Babe you there shall find
to human view displayed,
all meanly wrapped in swathing bands,
and in a manger laid."

5. Thus spake the seraph, and forthwith
appeared a shining throng
of angels praising God, who thus
addressed their joyful song:

6. "All glory be to God on high
and on earth be peace;
good will henceforth from heaven to me
begin and never cease."


Hymnal 1982 (H128)   We Three Kings

Piano     PARTS

1. We three kings of Orient are,
bearing gifts we traverse afar,
field and fountain,
moor and mountain,
following yonder star.

Refrain:
O star of wonder, star of night,
star with royal beauty bright;
westward leading, still proceeding,
guide us to thy perfect light!

2. Born a King on Bethlehem's plain,
gold I bring to crown him again,
King for ever,
ceasing never
over us all to reign. (Refrain)

3. Frankincense to offer have I:
incense owns a Deity nigh;
prayer and praising,
gladly raising,
worship him, God Most High. (Refrain)

4. Myrrh is mine; its bitter perfume
breathes a life of gathering gloom;
sorrowing, sighing,
bleeding, dying,
sealed in the stone-cold tomb. (Refrain)

5. Glorious now behold him arise,
King and God and Sacrifice;
heaven sings alleluia:
alleluia the earth replies. (Refrain)


LEVAS (L026)   Silent Night

Piano     PARTS

1 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.

2 Silent night, holy night,
Shepherds quake at the sight,
Glories stream from heaven afar,
Heav’nly host sing Alleluia;
Christ the Savior is born.

3 Silent night, holy night,
Son of God, loves pure light
Radiant beams from thy Holy face,
With the dawn of redeeming grace;
Jesus, Lord, at thy birth.

4 Silent night, holy night,
All is dark save the light
Yonder where thy sweet vigils keep.
O’er the Babe who in silence sleep;
Rest in heavenly peace.
