Jingle Bells 02:20
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way! O What fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh, Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way! O What fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh. Dashing through the snow, in a one-horse open sleigh Over the fields we go, Laughing all the way. Bells on bobtail ring, Making spirits bright What fun it is to ride and sing A sleighing song tonight! Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way! O What fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh, Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way! O What fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh. A day or two ago I thought I'd take a ride, And soon, Miss Fanny Bright Was seated by my side. The horse was lean and lank, Misfortune seemed his lot, He got into a drifted bank And then we got upsot. Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way! O What fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh, Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way! O What fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh. A day or two ago, The story I must tell I went out on the snow, And on my back I fell. A gent was riding by In a one-horse open sleigh, He laughed as there I sprawling lie, But quickly drove away. Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way! O What fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh, Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way! O What fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh. Now the ground is white, Go it while you're young; Take the girls tonight, And sing this sleighing song. Just get a bobtailed bay, Two-forty as his speed, Hitch him to an open sleigh And crack! you'll take the lead.

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 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 wherever it went Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel Born is the King of Israel This star drew nigh to the northwest O'er Bethlehem it took its rest And there it did both stop and stay Right o'er the place where Jesus lay Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel Born is the King of Israel Then entered in those Wise men three Fell reverently upon their knee And offered there in His presence Their gold and myrrh and frankincense Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel Born is the kind of Israel Then let us all with one accord Sing praises to our heavenly Lord That hath made heaven and earth of nought And with his blood mankind has bought Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel Born is the King of Israel

God rest ye merry, gentlemen Let nothing you dismay Remember, Christ, our Saviour Was born on Christmas day To save us all from Satan's power When we were gone astray O tidings of comfort and joy Comfort and joy O tidings of comfort and joy In Bethlehem, in Israel This blessed Babe was born And laid within a manger Upon this blessed morn The which His Mother Mary Did nothing take in scorn O tidings of comfort and joy Comfort and joy O tidings of comfort and joy From God our Heavenly Father A blessed Angel came And unto certain Shepherds Brought tidings of the same How that in Bethlehem was born The Son of God by Name O tidings of comfort and joy Comfort and joy O tidings of comfort and joy "Fear not then", said the Angel "Let nothing you affright This day is born a Saviour Of a pure Virgin bright To free all those who trust in Him From Satan's power and might" O tidings of comfort and joy Comfort and joy O tidings of comfort and joy The shepherds at those tidings Rejoiced much in mind And left their flocks a-feeding In tempest, storm and wind And went to Bethlehem straightway The Son of God to find O tidings of comfort and joy Comfort and joy O tidings of comfort and joy And when they came to Bethlehem Where our dear Saviour lay They found Him in a manger Where oxen feed on hay His Mother Mary kneeling down Unto the Lord did pray O tidings of comfort and joy Comfort and joy O tidings of comfort and joy Now to the Lord sing praises All you within this place And with true love and brotherhood Each other now embrace This holy tide of Christmas All other doth deface O tidings of comfort and joy Comfort and joy O tidings of comfort and joy

What child is this, who, laid to rest On Mary's lap is sleeping? Whom angels greet with anthems sweet While shepherds watch are keeping? This, this is Christ the King Whom shepherds guard and angels sing Haste, haste to bring him laud The babe, the son of Mary So bring him incense, gold, and myrrh Come, peasant, king, to own him The King of kings salvation brings Let loving hearts enthrone him This, this is Christ the King Whom shepherds guard and angels sing Haste, haste to bring him laud The babe, the son of Mary La (la, la) La (la, la, la) La (la, la) La (la, la, la) The holly and the ivy When they are both full grown Of all the trees that are in the wood The holly bears the crown The rising of the sun And the running of the deer The playing of the merry organ Sweet singing in the choir La (la, la) La (la, la, la) La (la, la) La (la, la, la) The holly bears a blossom As white as lily flower And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ To be our sweet Savior The rising of the sun And the running of the deer The playing of the merry organ Sweet singing in the choir
