Dong Dong Merrily on High

Ding dong! Merrily on high, 

In heav'n the bells are ringing:

Ding dong! Verily the sky

Is riv'n with angel singing.

Gloria, Hosanna in excelsis! 

E'en so here below, below, 

Let steeple bells be swungen, 

And "io, io, io!"

By priest and people sungen.

Pray you, dutifully prime

Your matin chime, you ringers

May you beautifully rhyme

Your eve time song you singers

I Believe In Father Christmas

They said there'd be snow at Christmas 

They said there'd be peace on Earth 

But instead it just keeps on raining 

A veil of tears for the virgin birth

I remember one Christmas morning 

A winter's light and a distant choir 

And the peal of a bell and that Christmas Tree smell 

And eyes full of tinsel and fire 

They sold me a dream of Christmas 

They sold me a silent night 

They told me a fairy story 

But I believed in the Israelites

I believed in Father Christmas 

I looked to the sky with excited eyes 

'Till I woke with a yawn in the first light of dawn 

And I saw him through his disguise 

I wish you a hopeful Christmas 

I wish you a brave new year 

All anguish, pain, and sadness 

Leave your heart, let your road be clear 

They said there'd be snow at Christmas 

They said there'll be peace on Earth 

Hallelujah, Noel, be it heaven or hell 

The Christmas we get we deserve

Bless This House

Bless this house

O Lord we pray

Make it safe

By night and day

Bless these walls

So firm and stout

Keeping want

And trouble out

Bless the roof

And chimneys tall

Let thy peace

Lie overall

Bless this door

That it may prove

Ever open

To joy and love

Bless these windows

Shining bright

Letting in God's

Heavenly light

Bless the hearth

Ablazing there

With smoke ascending

Like a prayer

Bless the people

Here within

Keep them pure

And free from sin

Bless us all

That we may be

Fit O Lord

To dwell

With Thee

Bless us all

That one day

We may dwell

O Lord

With Thee

 

Joy To The World (You Are My Joy)

You are my joy, joy, joy

Verse 1:

Joy to the world the Lord is com

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

He rules the world with truth and grace

And make the nation prove

The glories of His righteousness

And wonders of His love / oh the wonders of His love / oh the wonders and wonders of His love

You are my joy / you are my joy / Yes, you are, you are my joy
