Verse 1 I heard a young man say, “Grandpa what’s the point to all these decorations, The point to all these Christmas day charades? It seems like such a waste, To celebrate the birth of one baby boy, That happened so long ago, so far away.” The old man turned his head to look his way, And in his heart he said a prayer “God, help me know just what to say”. And he said… Chorus Without a Silent Night, without a Holy night in Bethlehem Without the angels singing joyfully to proclaim the First Noel Without the manger bed to hold the newborn Savior of the World Without Christmas, there’s no Easter, and this is why, I celebrate His birth Verse 2 So many souls today, Put their joy in reindeer songs, and shopping malls, A jolly man who drives a Christmas sleigh But if they’d only see, How the magic of this time of year, is simply joy of knowing Christ the King The beauty of this season’s peace on earth Is the God made flesh who came to us as we celebrate His birth! Bridge And on that night in Bethlehem, as the shepherds watched the angels sing, “behold the Great I Am!” A star would show a holy light to declare the one who’d conquer death and give to man new life!

Verse 1 O come, O come, Emmanuel And ransom captive Israel That mourns in lonely exile here Until the Son of God appear Refrain Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel Shall come to thee, O Israel Verse 2 O come, Thou Dayspring, come and cheer Our spirits by Thine advent here Disperse the gloomy clouds of night And death's dark shadows put to flight Refrain Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel Shall come to thee, O Israel

Verse 1 Oh little town of Bethlehem, how still we see thee lie Above thy deep and dreamless sleep the silent stars go by Yet in thy dark streets shineth, the everlasting light The hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight. Verse 2 For Christ is born of Mary, and gathered all above While mortals sleep the angels keep their watch of wondering love Oh morning stars together, proclaim thy holy birth. And praises sing to God the king, and peace to men on earth. Verse 3 O holy Child of Bethlehem, descend to us, we pray! Cast out our sin and enter in, be born in us to-day. We hear the Christmas angels, the great glad tidings tell; O come to us, abide with us, our Lord Emmanuel!

Verse 1 In the bleak midwinter Frosty wind made moan Earth stood hard as iron Water like a stone Snow had fallen Snow on snow on snow In the bleak midwinter Long, long ago Verse 2 What can I give him? Poor as I am If I were a shepherd I would give a lamb If I were a wise man I would do my part Yet what I can I give him I’ll give him my heart I’ll Give him my heart Ending (written by Matt Case) When I say I’ll give my heart I mean I’ll give Him everything For in this bleak and frozen world He turned my winter into spring For He alone is all I want The joy, the hope, the life in me And in Him summer awaits for all, For those who say I’ll give Him my heart I will give Him my heart

O Holy Night 05:38
Verse 1 O holy night, the stars are brightly shining, It is the night of the dear Savior’s birth; Long lay the world in sin and error pining, ‘Till 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, Oh hear the angel voices! O night divine! O night when Christ was born. O night, divine, O night, O night divine. Verse 2 Truly He taught us to love one another; His law is Love and His gospel is Peace; Chains shall he break, for the slave is our brother, And in his name all oppression shall cease, Sweet hymns of joy in grateful Chorus raise we; Let all within us praise his Holy name! Christ is the Lord, O praise His name forever! His pow’r and glory, evermore proclaim! His pow’r and glory, evermore proclaim! Reprise Fall on your knees, Oh hear the angel voices! O night divine! O night when Christ was born. O night, divine, O night, O night divine.

Silent Night 04:20
Verse 1 Silent night, holy night! All is calm, all is bright. Round yon Virgin, Mother and Child. Holy infant so tender and mild, Sleep in heavenly peace, Sleep in heavenly peace Verse 2 Silent night, holy night! Shepherds quake at the sight. Glories stream from heaven afar Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia, Christ the Savior is born! Christ the Savior is born Verse 3 Silent night, holy night! Son of God love's pure light. Radiant beams from Thy holy face With dawn of redeeming grace, Jesus Lord, at Thy birth Jesus Lord, at Thy birth
