Hymns and Songs for Christmas

Ancient & Modern – Hymns and Songs for Refreshing Worship
(Many of these are in Sing Praise)

Come and join the celebration
Holy Child within the manger
In our darkness light has shone
In the night, the sound of crying
Jesus Christ the Lord is born
Like a candle flame
See him lying on a bed of straw
Thou who wast rich beyond all splendour
 What child is this, who, laid to rest
 Who would think that what was needed

Hymns of Glory, Songs of Praise

Before the world began one Word was there
Come and join the celebration
Jesus is born
Lord, you were rich beyond all splendour          
One day an angel here on this earth
See him lying on a bed of straw
Still the night, holy the night!
The Virgin Mary had a baby boy
While humble shepherds watched their flocks
Who would think that what was needed

Laudate

A noble flower of Juda
Angels we have heard in heaven
Awake! awake, and greet the new morn
Child in the manger, infant of Mary
Come, come, come to the manger
Gaudete
Go, tell it on the mountain
Holy Child within the manger
I wonder as I wander
Jesus, Saviour, holy child
Jesus the Word has lived among us
Joyful news to you I bring
Sleep, holy babe
'Twas in the moon of wintertime
What child is this, who, laid to rest
What shall we give to the child in the manger?
Who is the baby an hour or two old
