From all that dwell below the skies
Give thanks with a grateful heart
Go tell it on the mountain

Good Christian men, rejoice
Hail, thou source of every blessing
Hail to the Lord's Anointed
Holy Child, how still you lie
How bright appears the Morning Star
I am the light of the world
I heard the voice of Jesus say
In the bleak midwinter
Jesus, good above all other
Jesus shall reign where'er the sun
Let all mortal flesh keep silence
Let earth and heaven combine
Let there be light
Lo, how a Rose e'er blooming
Lord, when the wise men came from far
Lord, who left the highest heaven
Love came down at Christmas
Many are the lightbeams
No crowded eastern street
Now the silence
O come, all ye faithful
O little Love, who comes again
O little town of Bethlehem
O radiant Christ, incarnate word
O splendor of God's glory bright
O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness
On Christmas night all Christians sing
On this day earth shall ring
Once in royal David's city
See him lying on a bed of straw
See! in yonder manger low
Shepherds came, their praises bringing
Sleep, sweet child, thy mother watches
Songs of thankfulness and praise
The first Nowell the angel did say
The Virgin Mary had a baby boy
The wise may bring their learning
'Twas in the moon of wintertime
Unto us a boy is born
We three kings of Orient are
What child is this, who, laid to rest
What star is this, with beams so bright
When a star is shining over eastern hills
When Christ's appearing was made known
When our God came to earth
Where is this stupendous stranger?
Who would think
Why, impious Herod, should'st thou fear
Wise men of old came seeking
Wise men, seeking Jesus
Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness

O sacred head, sore wounded
O sacred head, surrounded
On a hill far away
One more step along the world I go
Open are the gifts of God
Praise to the Holiest in the height
Praise ye the Lord, ye servants of the Lord
Rock of ages, cleft for me
See, Christ was wounded for our sake
Sing, my tongue, the glorious battle
So much wrong and so much injustice
Spirit, spirit of gentleness
Stay with us through the night
Sunset to sunrise changes now
Sweet the moments, rich in blessing
Teach us, O loving heart of Christ
The head that once was crowned with thorns
The royal banners forward go
There is a green hill far away
They crucified my Savior
This is the night, dear friends
Throned upon the awful Tree
Tis finished! The Messiah dies
To mock your reign, O dearest Lord
We sing the praise of him who died
We sing your mercies
We turn to God when we are sorely pressed
Were you there when they crucified my Lord?
What have we to show our Savior
What wondrous love is this
When I survey the wondrous Cross
When we are tempted to deny your Son
While Mary was watching, they hung Jesus high
You, Lord, are both lamb and shepherd

Jesus, lover of my soul
Just as I am, without one plea
Lord Jesus, think on me
Lord, speak to me, that I may speak
O bless the Lord, my soul
O for a thousand tongues to sing
O God, by whose almighty plan
O love, how deep, how broad, how high
O Master, let me walk with thee
O very God of very God
Praise, my soul, the King of heaven
Put thou thy trust in God
Teach me, God, to wonder
Thine arm, O Lord, in days of old
Thou, whose almighty Word
We are pilgrims on a journey
When all thy mercies, O my God
When Jesus the healer passed through Galilee
Will you come and follow me?
Word of God, come down on earth
Ye servants of God, your Master proclaim
Your hands, O Lord, in days of old
