LYRICS FOR NURSING HOME CAROLING VISIT 2019

Jingle Bells

Dashing through the snow – in a one-horse open sleigh,

Over the fields we go – laughing all the way.

Bells on bob-tail ring – making spirits bright,

What fun it is to ride and sing a sleighing song tonight.

(Chorus:)

Jingle bells – jingle bells – jingle all the way!

Oh what fun – it is to ride – in a one-horse open sleigh – Hey!

Jingle bells – jingle bells – jingle all the way!

Oh what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh!

  

Rudolf 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!”

 

Silent Night

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 Savior, is born – Christ the Savior, 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.

 

Away in a Manger

 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.

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.

 

Hark the Herald Angels Sing

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 triumph of the skies

With the angelic host proclaim:

“Christ is born in Bethlehem”

Hark! The herald angels sing

“Glory to the newborn King!”

Christ by highest heav’n adored

Christ the everlasting Lord!

Late in time behold Him come

Offspring of a Virgin’s womb

Veiled in flesh the Godhead see

Hail the incarnate Deity

Pleased as man with man to dwell

Jesus, our Emmanuel

Hark! The herald angels sing

“Glory to the newborn King!”

Hail the heav’n-born Prince of Peace!

Hail the Son of Righteousness!

Light and life to all He brings

Ris’n with healing in His wings

Mild He lays His glory by

Born that man no more may die

Born to raise the sons of earth

Born to give them second birth

Hark! The herald angels sing

“Glory to the newborn King!”

Dreidel Song

I have a little dreidel – I made it out of clay.

And when it’s dry and ready – Oh dreidel I shall play.

Oh dreidel – dreidel – dreidel – I made it out of clay.

And when it’s dry and ready – Then dreidel I shall play.

It has a lovely body – With legs so short and thin.

And when it gets all tired – It drops and then I win.

Oh dreidel – dreidel – dreidel – I made it out of clay.

And when it’s dry and ready – Then dreidel I shall play.

My dreidel’s always playful – It loves to dance and spin.

A happy game of dreidel – Come play, now let’s begin.

Oh dreidel – dreidel – dreidel – I made it out of clay.

And when it’s dry and ready – Then dreidel I shall play.

The First Noel

The First Noel, the Angels did say
Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay
In fields where they lay keeping their sheep
On a cold winter’s night that was so deep

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel!

They looked up and saw a star
Shining in the East beyond them far
And to the earth it gave great light
And so it continued both day and night

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel!

O Come, All Ye Faithful

O come, all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant!
O come ye, O come ye, to Bethlehem
Come and behold Him
Born the King of Angels
O come, let us adore Him
O come, let us adore Him
O come, let us adore Him
Christ the Lord!

God of God, Light of Light
Lo, He abhors not the Virgin’s womb
Very God
Begotten, not created
O come, let us adore Him
O come, let us adore Him
O come, let us adore Him
Christ the Lord!

Sing, choirs of angels, sing in exultation
Sing, all ye citizens of heaven above!
Glory to God
All glory in the highest
O come, let us adore Him
O come, let us adore Him
O come, let us adore Him
Christ the Lord!

Joy to the World

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.
