Happy Christmas to one and all!




Let's enjoy our favorite carols together. (Music + words would be nice.)





HYMN FOR CHRISTMAS DAY

See amid the winter snow,
Born for us on earth below,
See the tender lamb appears.
Promised from eternal years.

Chorus —
Hail, thou ever-blessed morn !
Hail, Redemption's happy dawn !
Sing thro' all Jerusalem,
Christ is born in Bethlehem.

Lo, within a manger lies
He, who built the starry skies ;
He, who throned in height sublime.
Sits amid the Cherubim.

Say, ye holy shepherds, say,
What your joyful news today ?
Wherefore have ye left your sheep
On the lonely mountain steep ?

"As we watched at dead of night,
Lo, we saw a wondrous light;
Angels singing 'Peace on earth,'
Told us of the Saviour's birth."

Sacred Infant, all Divine,
What a tender love was Thine;
Thus to come from highest bliss
Down to such a world as this !

Teach, oh, teach us, Holy Child,
By Thy face so meek and mild.
Teach us to resemble Thee,
In Thy sweet humility !

That's great.I have one that I saw when I was a kid that I used to love. I forgot how it went, but I remember the two brothers, heat and snow miser.
Its not exactly a Christmas carol but it was a cool song.
Anyway,Merry Christmas from sunny Florida.

I would have put it up, but I cant find it, and I wouldn't even know how to get it here.

I don't suppose it was this by any chance?-





Good King Wenceslas looked out
On the feast of Stephen
When the snow lay round about
Deep and crisp and even
Brightly shone the moon that night
Though the frost was cruel
When a poor man came in sight
Gath'ring winter fuel

"Hither, page, and stand by me
If thou know'st it, telling
Yonder peasant, who is he?
Where and what his dwelling?"
"Sire, he lives a good league hence
Underneath the mountain
Right against the forest fence
By Saint Agnes' fountain."

"Bring me flesh and bring me wine
Bring me pine logs hither
Thou and I will see him dine
When we bear him thither."
Page and monarch forth they went
Forth they went together
Through the rude wind's wild lament
And the bitter weather

"Sire, the night is darker now
And the wind blows stronger
Fails my heart, I know not how,
I can go no longer."
"Mark my footsteps, my good page
Tread thou in them boldly
Thou shalt find the winter's rage
Freeze thy blood less coldly."

In his master's steps he trod
Where the snow lay dinted
Heat was in the very sod
Which the Saint had printed
Therefore, Christian men, be sure
Wealth or rank possessing
Ye who now will bless the poor
Shall yourselves find blessing.

My favorite is Bob Seger's version of Little Drummer Boy. I LOVE the song enough as it is but his version gives me goose bumps.

I really enjoyed this thread. Loved listening to all the beautiful carols. I really enjoyed the "Carol of the Bells".



Happy New Year,
Grandma
