The First Noël

the first Noël, the angels did say

was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay

in fields… where they lay, they were keeping their sheep

on a cold winter's night, that was so deep


Noël, Noël, Noël, Noël,

born is the King of Israel


as the shepherds looked up, and they saw a bright star

shining there in the east, beyond them far

and to the darkened land, it gave a great light

and so it continued, thru day and thru night


Noël, Noël, Noël, Noël

born is the King of Israel


and by the light, of that same star

three wise men came from country far

to seek for a king, was their intent

and to follow the star where ever it went


Noël, Noël, Noël, Noël

born is the King of Israel


this star drew nigh, to the northwest

over Bethlehem it took its rest

and there it did, both stop and stay

right over the place where Jesus lay


Noël, Noël, Noël, Noël

born is the King of Israel


Noël, Noël, Noël, Noël

born is the King of Israel

Stille Nacht

Stille nacht, heilige nacht

Davids Zoon, lang verwacht, 

Die miljoenen eens zaligen zal

wordt geboren in Bethlehems stal

Hij, der schepselen Heer

Hij, der schepselen Heer 


Stille nacht, heilige nacht, 

In een stal sluimert zacht, 

Op wat stro in een kribje ter neer, 

ligt het Kindje, der hemelen Heer, 

Heilig wichtje slaap zacht, 

Heilig wichtje slaap zacht. 


Stille nacht, heilige nacht

Vreed' en heil wordt gebracht 

aan een wereld, verloren in schuld

Gods belofte wordt heerlijk vervuld

Amen, Gode zij eer

Amen, Gode zij eer


Silent Night, Holy Night

All is calm, All is bright

Round yon vir…gin mother and child

Holy infant so tender and mild

Sleep in heavenly peace

Sleep in heavenly peace


Stille nacht, heilige nacht,

alles slaapt, eenzaam waakt…

niets is hier dat uw rust… verstoord

slaap maar verder, slaap ru…stig voort

herders houden de wacht

slaap maar verder, slaap zacht…

Nu Syt Wellekomen

nu zijt wellekome, Jesu lieve Heer 

gij komt van alzo hoge, van al zo veer 

nu zijt wellekome uit de hoge hemel neer 

hier al op dit aardrijk zijt gij gezien nooit meer 

kyrie eleis…


christe Kyrieleison, laat ons zingen blij

daarmeed' ook onze leisen beginnen vrij

jezus is geboren op den heilige kerstnacht

van een Maged reine, die hoog moet zijn geacht

kyrie eleis…


herders op den velde, hoorden een nieuw lied 

dat Jezus was geboren, zij wisten 't niet 

gaat aan gene strate, en gij zult het vinden klaar 

beth'lem is de stede, daar is 't geschied voorwaar 

kyrie eleis 


heilige drie koningen, uit zo verre land 

zij zochten onze Here, met offerand 

z'offerden ootmoediglijk myrrh' wierook ende goud 

't eren van dat kindje, dat alle ding behoudt 

kyrie eleis

Gloria In Exelcis Deo

engeltjes door het luchtruim zwevend

zongen zo blij, zo wonderzacht

van de Heer van dood en leven

die er vrede op aarde bracht


glo…ria in Excelsis Deo

glo…ria in Excelsis Deo


zongen blij en wonderklare

van 't kindje rein en teer

en de herders die daar waren

knielden bij de kribbe neer


glo…ria in Excelsis Deo

glo…ria in Excelsis De…o

Komt Allen Tezamen/ Oh Come All Ye Faithful

komt allen tezamen, 

jubelend van vreugde

komt nu, o komt nu naar Bethlehem

ziet nu de vorst der eng'len hier geboren


komt, laten wij aanbidden

komt, laten wij aanbidden

komt, laten wij aanbidden die Koning


de hemelse englen 

riepen eens de herders 

weg van de kudde naar 't schamel dak

spoeden ook wij ons met eerbiedige schreden


komt, laten wij aanbidden

komt, laten wij aanbidden

komt, laten wij aanbidden die Koning


oh come all ye faithful

joyful and triumphant

oh come ye, oh come ye, to Bethlehem

come and behold Him, born the King of angels


oh come, let us adore Him

oh come, let us adore Him

oh come, let us adore Him, Christ… the Lord

Midden In De Winternacht

Midden in de winternacht, ging de hemel open. 

Die ons heil der wereld bracht, antwoord op ons hopen 


Elke vogel zingt zijn lied, herders waarom zingt gij niet 

Laat de citers slaan, blaast de fluiten aan 

Laat de bel, laat de trom, laat de beltrom horen

Christus is geboren


Vrede was er overal, wilde dieren kwamen 

Bij de schapen in de stal, en zij speelden samen


Elke vogel zingt zijn lied, herders waarom zingt gij niet 

Laat de citers slaan, blaast de fluiten aan 

Laat de bel, laat de trom, laat de beltrom horen

Christus is geboren


Ondanks winter sneeuw en ijs, bloeien alle bomen

want het aardse paradijs is vannacht gekomen


Elke vogel zingt zijn lied, herders waarom zingt gij niet 

Laat de citers slaan, blaast de fluiten aan 

Laat de bel, laat de trom, laat de beltrom horen

Christus is geboren


Zie daar staat de morgenster, stralend in het duister 

Want de dag is niet meer ver, bode van de luister 


Die ons weldra op zal gaan, herders blaast uw fluiten aan 

Laat de bel bim-bam, laat de trom rom-bom 

Kere om, kere om, laat de bel-trom horen 

Christus is geboren

De Herdertjes Lagen Bij Nachten

de herdertjes lagen bij nachte 

zij lagen bij nacht in het veld 

zij hielden vol trouwe de wachte 

zij hadden hun schaapjes geteld


daar hoorden zij engelen zingen 

hun liederen vloeiend en klaar 

de herders naar bethlehem gingen 

't liep tegen het nieuwe jaar 


toen zij er te bethlehem kwamen 

daar schoten drie stralen dooreen 

een straal van omhoog zij vernamen 

een straal uit het kribje benee


toen vlamd' er een straal uit hun ogen 

en viel op het kindeke teer 

zij stonden tot schreiens bewogen 

en knielden bij jezus neer


maria die bloosde van weelde 

van ootmoed en lieflijke vreugd 

de goede sint jozef hij streelde 

het kindje der mensen geneugt


de herders bevalen te weiden 

hun schaapkens aan d`engelenschaar 

wij kunnen van 't kribje niet scheiden 

wij wachten het nieuwe jaar

White Christmas

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas

just like the ones I used to know

where the treetops glisten and children listen

to hear sleighbells in the snow


I'm dreaming of a white Christmas

with every Christmas card I write

may your days be merry and bright

and may all your Christmases be white

It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

it's the most wonderful time of the year

with the kids jingle belling and everyone telling

you be of good cheer

it's the most wonderful time of the year


it's the hap-happiest season of all

with those holiday greetings and gay happy meetings

when friends come to call

it's the hap-happiest season of all


there'll be parties for hosting, marshmallows for toasting

and caroling out in the snow

there'll be scary ghost stories and tales of the glories

of christmases long, long ago


it's the most wonderful time of the year

there'll be much mistle-toeing and hearts will be glowing

when love ones are near

it's the most wonderful time of the year

It's Beginning To Look A Like Christmas

it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, ev'rywhere you go

take a look in the five-and-ten, it's glistening once again

with candy canes and silver lanes that glow


it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, toys in ev'ry store

but the prettiest sight to see is the holly that will be

on your own front door


a pair of hop-along boots and a pistol that shoots

is the wish of Barney and Ben

dolls that will talk and will go for a walk

is the hope of Janice and Jen

and mom and Dad can hardly wait for school to start again


it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, ev'rywhere you go

there's a tree in the Grand Hotel, one in the park as well

it's the sturdy kind that doesn't mind the snow


it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, soon the bells will start

and the thing that will make them ring, is the carol that you sing

right within your heart


(instrumental)

Let It Snow

oh the weather outside is frightful

but the fire is so delightful

and since we've no place to go

let it snow, let it snow, let it snow


it doesn't show signs of stopping

and I've brought some corn for popping

the lights are turned way down low

let it snow, let it snow, let it snow


when we finally kiss good night

how I'll hate going out in the storm

but if you'll really hold me tight

all the way home I'll be warm


the fire is slowly dying

and, my dear, we're still goodbying

but as long as you love me so

let it snow, let it snow, let it snow


(instrumental)

Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer

all of the other reindeer, used to laugh and call him names

they never let poor rudolph, join in any reindeer games


then one foggy christmas eve

santa came to say

rudolph with ur nose so bright

won't u guide my sleigh tonight


then how’ll the reindeer loved him, as they shouted out with glee

rudolph the red nosed reindeer, you'll go down in history


(instrumental)

hey, jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way

Hallelujah (Rufus Wainwright)

I've heard there was a secret chord

that David played and it pleased the Lord

but you don't really care for music, do you


it goes like this...the fourth, the fifth

the minor fall and the major lift

the baffled King composing halleluja


halleluja (4x)


your faith was strong but you needed proof

you saw her bathing on the roof

her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you


she tied you to her kitchen chair

she broke your throne she cut your hair

and from your lips she drew the Halleluja


Halleluja (4x)


baby I have been here before

i've seen this room, I've walked this floor, you know

i used to live alone before I knew you


i've seen your flag on the marble arch

love is not a victory march

it's a cold and it's a broken Halleluja


halleluja (4x)


there was a time when you let me know

what's really going on below

but now you never show that to me, do you


remember when I moved in you

and the holy dove was moving too

and every breath we drew was Halleluja


halleluja (4x)


maybe there's a God above

but all I've ever learned from love

was how to shoot at somebody who outdrew you


and it's not a crime that you hear at night

it's not somebody who's seen the light

it's a cold and it's a broken Halleluja


halleluja (4x)

Lonely This Christmas (Mud)

try to imagine, a house that's not a home

try to imagine, a christmas all alone

that's where i'll be, since you left me

my tears could melt the snow

what can I do, whitout you

I've got no place, no place to go


it'll be lonely this christmas, without you to hold

it'll be lonely this christmas, lonely and cold

it'll be cold so cold, without you to hold

this christmas


each time I remember, the day you went away

and how I would listen, to the things you wanted to say

I just break down, as I look around, and the only things I see

are emptiness and loneliness, and an unlit christmas tree


it'll be lonely this christmas, without you to hold

it'll be lonely this christmas, lonely and cold

it'll be cold so cold, without you to hold

this christmas


(spoken)

you remember last year, when you and I were together

we never thougt there'd be an end

and I remember looking at you then

and I remember thinking that chistmas must have been made for us

cause darlin' this is the time of year that you really need love

when it means so very very much

it'll be lonely this christmas,without you to hold

it'll be lonely this christmas, lonely and cold


it'll be lonely this christmas, without you to hold

it'll be lonely this christmas, lonely and cold

it'll be cold so cold, without you to hold…

this christmas, oehoe…


merry christmas darlin', wherever you are

Jingle Bell Rock

dancin' and prancin', in jingle bell square

jingle around the clock

mix and mingle, in a jinglin' beat

that's the jingle bell rock

It's Gonna Be A Cold, Cold Christmas

according to the radio, warmer weather is on the way

the chances are we won't be getting snow

but even if the sun shines, from now to Christmas day

as far as I'm concerned, I know…


it's gonna be a cold, cold Christmas without you

dreaming of those warm, warm, lazy summer days

it's gonna be a long and lonely Christmas without you

missing you my darling in oh so many ways


yesterday I saw your mum and dad, we bought our cards together

I fit the presents at the Christmas tree, and as I write this letter

it's warm, inside, the log fire's burning bright

oh darling if only you were here to make it right


it's gonna be a cold, cold Christmas without you

dreaming of those warm, warm, lazy summer days

it's gonna be a long and lonely Christmas without you

missing you my darling in oh so many ways


I didn't bother with the mistletoe, you won't be here to kiss me

the only consolation that I've got, I know for sure you'll miss me

it won't, be long, until you're home again

and we can share these magic moments, but 'til then


it's gonna be a cold, cold Christmas without you

dreaming of those warm, warm, lazy summer days

it's gonna be a long and lonely Christmas without you

missing you my darling in oh so many ways


it's gonna be a cold, cold Christmas without you

dreaming of those warm, warm, lazy summer days

it's gonna be a long and lonely Christmas without you

missing you my darling in oh so many ways

Last Christmas

last Christmas I gave you my heart

but the very next day you gave it away

this year, to save me from tears

I'll give it to someone special

(repeat)


(instrumental)


once bitten and twice shy

I keep my distance but you still catch my eye

tell me, baby, do you recognize me

well, It's been a year, it doesn't surprise me


(Merry Christmas) I wrapped it up and sent it

with… a note, saying, I love you, I meant it

now I know what a fool I've been

but if you’d kiss me now, I know you'd fool me again


last Christmas I gave you my heart

but the very next day you gave it away

this year, to save me from tears

I'll give it to someone special

(repeat)


(instrumental)


a crow…ded room, friends with tired eyes

I'm hiding from you, and your soul of ice

my god I thought you were, someone to rely on

me, I guess I was a shoulder to cry on


a face on a lover with a fire in his heart

a man undercover but you tore me apart, oehoe

now I've found a real love, you'll never fool me again


last Christmas I gave you my heart

but the very next day you gave it away

this year, to save me from tears

I'll give it to someone special

(repeat)


a face on a lover with a fire in his heart

a man under cover but you tore him apart

(maybe next year) I'll give it to someone

I'll give it to someone special


(instrumental)

Merry Christmas Everybody (Slade)

are you hanging up a stocking on your walls

it's the time that every Santa has a ball

does he ride a red nosed reindeer

does a 'ton up' on his sleigh

do the fairies keep him sober for a day


so here it is merry Christmas, everybody's having fun

look to the future now, it's only just begun…


are you waiting for the family to arrive

are you sure you got the room to spare inside

does your granny always tell ya

that the old songs are the best

then she's up and rock 'n' rollin' with the rest


so here it is merry Christmas, everybody's having fun

look to the future now, it's only just begun…


what will your daddy do

when he sees your mama

kissin' Santa Claus, ahaha…


are you hanging up a stocking on your wall

are you hoping that the snow will start to fall

do you ride on down the hillside

on a buggy you have made

when you land upon your head then you've been ‘slade’


so here it is merry Christmas, everybody's having fun

look to the future now, it's only just begun…

(repeat)

All I Want For Christmas

I… don't want a lot for Christmas, there is just one thing I need

I don't care about the presents, underneath the Christmas tree

I just want you for my own, more than you could ever know

make my wish come true… all I want for Christmas is…

you…


I don't want a lot for Christmas, there is just one thing I need (and I…)

don't care about the presents, underneath the Christmas tree

I don't need to hang my stocking, there upon the fireplace (I…)

Santa Claus won't make me happy, with a toy on Christmas day

I just want you for my own, more than you could ever know

make my wish come true, all I want for Christmas is you… you… baby


I won't ask for much this Christmas, I won't even wish for snow (and I…)

I just wanna keep on waiting, underneath the mistletoe

I won't make a list and send it, to the North Pole for Saint Nick (I…)

won't even stay awake, to hear those magic reindeer click

'cos I just want you here tonight, holding on to me so tight

what more can I do… baby all I want for Christmas is you… you…baby


all the lights are shining, so brightly everywhere

and the sound of children's, laughter fills the air

and everyone is singing, I hear those sleigh bells ringing

Santa won't you bring me, the one I really need

won't you please bring my baby to me quickly


I don't want a lot for Christmas, this is all I'm asking for (I…)

I just wanna see my baby, standing right outside my door

I just want you for my own, more than you could ever know

make my wish come true, baby all I want for Christmas…

Is… you… baby


all I want for Christmas is you, baby (repeat)

Do They Know It's Christmas

it's Christmas time, there's no need to be afraid

at Christmas time, we let in light and we banish shade

and in our world of plenty we can spread a smile of joy

throw your arms around the world at Christmas time


but say a prayer, to pray for the other ones

at Christmas time, it's hard, but when you're having fun


there's a world outside your window

and it's a world of dread and fear

where the only water flowing

is the bitter sting of tears

and the Christmas bells that ring there

are the clanging chimes of doom

well tonight thank God it's them instead of you


and there won't be snow in Africa this Christmas time

the greatest gift they'll get this year is life

where nothing ever grows, no rain or rivers flow

do they know it's Christmastime at all


here's to you, raise a glass for ev'ryone

here's to them, underneath that burning sun

do they know it's Christmas time at all


(instrumental)


feed the world… (2x)


feed the world, let them know it's Christmas time again

feed the world, let them know it's Christmas time again

(repeat)

Driving Home For Christmas

I'm driving home for christmas

I can't wait to see those faces

I'm driving home for christmas, yeah

well I'm moving down that line


and it's been so long, but I will be there

I sing this song, to pass the time away

driving in my car, driving home for christmas

it's gonna take some time, but I'll get there


top to toe in tailbacks

oh, I got red lights on the run

but soon there'll be a three-way, yeah

get my feet on holy ground


so I sing for you, though you can't hear me

when I get through, and feel you near me

driving in my car


driving home for christmas, driving home for christmas

with a thousand memories, I take look at the driver next to me

he's just the same… just the same…


top to toe in tailbacks

oh, I got red lights all around

I'm driving home for christmas, yeah

get my feet on holy ground


so I sing for you, though you can't hear me

when I get trough, and feel you near me

driving in my car, driving home for christmas

driving home for christmas, with a thousand memories

I take look at the driver next to me

he's just the same…

he’s driving home, driving home

driving home for Christmas
