Christmas Songs

By Jonathan Whitcomb


Sing We Now Most Joyful Lays

Sing we now most joyful lays,
Jesus Christ was born this day.
Let us sing our highest praise!
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Heaven’s King to earth came down!
He was born in Jesse’s town,
Bethlehem, with starlight crown!
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Shepherds left their flocks to see
Who this little child could be.
Worship Him on bended knee!
Alleluia! Alleluia!

Lullaby for Jesus

Let us sing a song for Jesus,
For the holy little one;
Let us bring a song of gladness
To our Heav’nly Father’s Son.
He was cradled in a manger,
And a bright star shone above,
Shepherds came to worship Jesus;
In the stable there was love.
We will sing for Baby Jesus,
Lullaby God’s little one,
We will sing of love and goodness
To our Heav’nly Father’s Son.
