Bound For Bethlehem

BOUND FOR BETHLEHEM

Angels We Have Heard On High

 

Angels we have heard on high

Sweetly singing o'er the plains

And the mountains in reply

Echoing their joyous strains

 

Gloria in excelsis Deo

 

Shepherds, why this jubilee?

Why your joyous strains prolong?

What the gladsome tidings be

Which inspire your heavenly song?

 

Gloria in excelsis Deo

 

Come to Bethlehem and see

Him whose birth the angels sing

Come adore on bended knee

Christ the Lord the newborn King

 

Gloria in excelsis Deo

 

See him in a manger laid

Whom the choirs of angels praise

Mary, Joseph, lend your aid

While our hearts in love we raise

 

Gloria in excelsis Deo

Gloria in excelsis Deo

Gloria in excelsis Deo

 

Do You Hear What I Hear

 

Said the night wind to the little lamb

Do you see what I see

Way up in the sky, little lamb

Do you see what I see

A star, a star, dancing in the night

With a tail as big as a kite

With a tail as big as a kite

 

Said the little lamb to the shepherd boy

Do you hear what I hear

Ringing through the sky, shepherd boy

Do you hear what I hear

A song, a song, high above the trees

With a voice as big as the sea

With a voice as big as the sea

 

Said the shepherd boy to the mighty king

Do you know what I know

In your palace warm, mighty king

Do you know what I know

A Child, a Child shivers in the cold

Let us bring him silver and gold

Let us bring him silver and gold

 

Said the king to the people everywhere

Listen to what I say

Pray for peace, people everywhere

Listen to what I say

The child, the child, sleeping in the night

He will bring us goodness and light

He will bring us goodness and light

 

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

Sing choirs of angels, sing in exultation

O sing all ye citizens of heaven above

Glory to God in the highest

O come let us adore him

O come let us adore him

O come let us adore him

Christ the Lord

Yes lord, we greet thee, born this happy morning

Lies here the savior from heaven above

Son of the father, 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

 

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

 

Bound For Bethlehem

 

We climbed aboard a sailing ship

As she set sail on Christmas day

Climbed aboard a sailing ship

Oh bound for Bethlehem I am

 

Set the course into a storm

Into a storm on Christmas day

King of kings was to be born

Oh bound for Bethlehem I am

 

Chorus:

Bound for Bethlehem we go

Our holy king there to behold

Bound for Bethlehem we go

Oh bound for Bethlehem I go

 

Captain roared ring the bell

Ring the bell on Christmas day

One and all upon farewell

Oh bound for Bethlehem I am

 

Captain bellowed round the horn

Round the horn on Christmas day

King of kings was to be born

Oh bound for Bethlehem I am

 

Chorus:

Bound for Bethlehem we go

Our holy king there to behold

Bound for Bethlehem we go

Oh bound for Bethlehem I go

 

Bound for Bethlehem we go

Our holy king there to behold

Bound for Bethlehem we go

Oh bound for Bethlehem I go

 

Sails are made of angels’ wings

Angels’ wings on Christmas day

As we flew I heard ‘em sing

Oh bound for Bethlehem I am

 

To the west we saw a star

Saw a star on Christmas day

A star on high to guide our hearts

Oh bound for Bethlehem I am

 

Chorus:

Bound for Bethlehem we go

Our holy king there to behold

Bound for Bethlehem we go

Oh bound for Bethlehem I go

 

Bound for Bethlehem we go

Our holy king there to behold

Bound for Bethlehem we go

Oh bound for Bethlehem I go

 

We climbed aboard a sailing ship

As she set sail on Christmas day

Climbed aboard a sailing ship

Oh bound for Bethlehem I am

 

Set the course into a storm

Into a storm on Christmas day

King of kings was to be born

Oh bound for Bethlehem I am

 

Chorus:

Bound for Bethlehem we go

Our holy king there to behold

Bound for Bethlehem we go

Oh bound for Bethlehem I go

 

Bound for Bethlehem we go

Our holy king there to behold

Bound for Bethlehem we go

Oh bound for Bethlehem I go

 

O Holy Night

 

O holy night

The stars are brightly shining

It is the night of our dear savior's birth

 

Long lay the world in sin and error pining

'Til he appeared and the soul felt its worth

 

A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices

For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.

 

Fall on your knees

O hear the angel voices

O night divine

O night when Christ was born

O night divine

O night

O holy night

 

It is the light of faith that is serenely beaming

With glowing hearts by his cradle they stand

 

Led by his star that was so sweetly gleaming

Follow these men from far distant lands

 

The king of kings lay lowly in a manger

Through all our trials born to be our friend

 

He knows our need, to our weakness no stranger

Behold your king, before him, before him bend

 

Fall on your knees

O hear the angel voices

O night divine

O night when Christ was born

O night divine

O night

O holy night

 

Boy From The Woods

 

As I was walking through the woods to find a Christmas tree

There appeared a small young boy, says he to me

I know where all the best ones are for a reasonable fee

I will take you there

 

I smiled and said now what an offer, how can I refuse

For such a noble deed my boy, how much are you due

He said now sir I think that I will leave that up to you

Whatever you think is fair

 

Chorus:

Some faith, hope, and love

A smile to warm your heart

A little hug

A deed that only you and god recall

Christmas brings it out in us all

 

He took me to the finest tree I’m sure in all the land

Said you’ll have to cut it down, I’m much too small a man

And as I did I watched him planting two more in the ground

Said someone has to help to make this big ol’ world go ‘round

 

Chorus:

With faith, hope, and love

A smile to warm your heart

A little hug

A deed that only you and god recall

Christmas brings it out in us all

 

I reached into my pocket for to pay his fee

He said I think I know someone who needs that more than me

You will find an orphanage two miles down the road

Christmas is a coming, … is getting …

 

I walked into the orphanage to do all that I could

She said I know who sent you here, the boy from the woods

Now and then someone like you

comes walking through my door

The funny thing is no one ‘round here saw the child before

 

Chorus:

But he brings faith, hope, and love

A smile to warm your heart

A little hug

A deed that only you and god recall

Christmas brings it out in us all

 

And with all the deeds that only you and god recall

This big ol’ world just wouldn’t turn at all

 

Go Tell It On The Mountain

 

Here we go

One two, a one two three four

 

Chorus:

Go tell it on the mountain

Over the hills and everywhere

Go tell it on the mountain

That Jesus Christ is born

 

While shepherds kept their watching

O’er silent flocks by night

Behold throughout the heavens

There shone a holy light

 

Chorus:

Go tell it on the mountain

Over the hills and everywhere

Go tell it on the mountain

That Jesus Christ is born

 

Shepherds feared and trembled

When lo above the earth

Rang out the angels’ chorus

That hailed our savior's birth

Singing

 

Chorus:

Go tell it on the mountain

Over the hills and everywhere

Go tell it on the mountain

That Jesus Christ is born

 

Down in a lowly manger

The humble Christ was born

And God sent us salvation

That blessed Christmas morn

 

Chorus:

Go tell it on the mountain

Over the hills and everywhere

Go tell it on the mountain

That Jesus Christ is born

 

Go tell it on the mountain

Over the hills and everywhere

Go tell it on the mountain

That Jesus Christ is born

That Jesus Chris is born

 

One two, a one two three four

 

Go tell it on the mountain

Over the hills and everywhere

Go tell it on the mountain

That Jesus Christ is born

 

Go tell it on the mountain

Over the hills and everywhere

Go tell it on the mountain

That Jesus Christ is born

 

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

 

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, and joy

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, and joy

Tidings of comfort and joy

 

The shepherds at those tidings

Rejoiced so much in mind

And left their flocks a feeding

Just left them all behind

And went to Bethlehem that day

That blessed babe to find

O tidings of comfort and joy, and joy

Tidings of comfort and joy

 

O when to Bethlehem they came

Where our dear saviour lay

They found him in a manger

Where oxen feed on hay

His mother Mary kneeling

Unto the lord did pray

O tidings of comfort and joy, and joy

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 others doth deface

O tidings of comfort and joy

O tidings of comfort and joy

O tidings of comfort and joy, and joy

O tidings of comfort and joy

 

A Good Cape Breton Tune

 

Snow is falling quietly on the highlands

The wind is whispering softly through the pines

To the home from once we came we do return again

We’re all heading back to the Mines, boys

Fire up the tunes and have a time

 

Lucy bows the fiddle like an angel

Kyle locks in the rhythm on guitar

Seamus pounds the keys with the music flowing free

We all sing it straight from the heart, boys

We all sing it straight from the heart

 

Chorus:

And we all gather ‘round the old kitchen table

And the drink flows free ‘round the room

They’re dancing in the hall

Merry Christmas one and all

Now rip us all a good Cape Breton tune

 

Buddy sings it’s getting dark again, boys

The lobster’s boiling over on the stove

Grandma telling tales in the tongue of the Gael

The old man says it’s good to have you home, boy

He cried and said it’s good to have you home

 

Chorus:

And we all gather ‘round the old kitchen table

And the drink flows free ‘round the room

They’re dancing in the hall

Merry Christmas one and all

Now rip us all a good Cape Breton tune

 

And we all gather ‘round the old kitchen table

And the drink flows free ‘round the room

They’re dancing in the hall

Merry Christmas one and all

Now rip us all a good Cape Breton tune

 

Yes we all gather ‘round the old kitchen table

And the drink flows free ‘round the room

They’re dancing in the hall

Merry Christmas one and all

Now rip us all a good Cape Breton tune

Christian Soldier

 

He was but a helpless baby

Lying in the cold

In a world that would prove to be much colder

They said he was sent to save me

But how was I to know

So I bowed before the Christian Soldier

 

They said he would command an army

More powerful than steel

Bring the world to its knees without a blow

And though I did not understand them

I took my turn to kneel

And put my faith into the great unknown

 

Chorus:

And what I remember most

Was how I felt the holy ghost

Descend upon me through the grace

Of god’s own hands

And I knew the world had changed

And it would never be the same

As his light washed the sins

From my hands

 

And what I remember most

Was how I felt the holy ghost

Descend upon me through the grace

Of god’s own hands

And I knew the world had changed

And it would never be the same

As his light washed the sins

From my hands

 

Auld Lang Syne

 

Should old acquaintance be forgot

And never brought to mind

Should old acquaintance be forgot

And auld lang syne

 

Chorus:

For auld lang syne, my dear

For auld lang syne

We'll take a cup of kindness yet

For auld lang syne

 

And surely I’ll fill up your glass

And surely you’ll fill mine

And we'll take a cup of kindness yet

For auld lang syne

 

Chorus:

For auld lang syne, my dear

For auld lang syne

We'll take a cup of kindness yet

For auld lang syne

 

So here’s a hand my trusted friend

Now give a hand of thine

And we'll take a cup of kindness yet

For auld lang syne

 

Chorus:

For auld lang syne, my dear

For auld lang syne

We'll take a cup of kindness yet

For auld lang syne

 

For auld lang syne, my dear

For auld lang syne

We'll take a cup of kindness yet

For auld lang syne
