Sleep my child and peace attend thee All through the night Guardian angels god had sent thee All through the night Soft the drowsy hours are creeping Hill and vale in slumber sleeping God his loving vigil keeping All through the night While the moon her watch is keeping All through the night While the weary world is sleeping All through the night Through your dreams you're swiftly stealing Visions of delight revealing Christmas night is so appealing All through the night You are part of wave of wonder All through the night Dreams you dreamed half raised from thunder All through the night Children's dreams cannot be broken Life is but a lovely token Christmas should be softly spoken All through the night

God rest you merry, gentlemen, let nothing you dismay For Jesus Christ our Saviour was born upon this day To save us all from Satan's power when we were gone astray O tidings of comfort and joy, comfort 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, comfort and joy 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 this blessed Babe to find O tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy Tidings of comfort and joy But when to Bethlehem they came whereat this Infant 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, comfort 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 other doth deface O tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy Tidings of comfort and joy

You know Dasher and Dancer And Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid And Donner and Blitzen. But do you recall The most famous reindeer of all? Rudolph the red-nose reindeer, Had a very shiny nose And if you ever saw it, You would even say it glows All of the other reindeer, Used to laugh and call him names; They never let poor Rudolph, Join in any reindeer games Then one foggy Christmas Eve, Santa came to say Rudolph with your nose so bright, Won't you guide my sleigh tonight? Then all the other reindeer loved him, As they shouted out with glee Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, You'll go down in history Then one foggy Christmas Eve, Santa came to say Rudolph with your nose so bright, Won't you guide my sleigh tonight? Then all the other reindeer loved him, As they shouted out with glee Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, You'll go down in history You know Dasher and Dancer And Prancer and Vixen, Comet and Cupid And Donner and Blitzen. But do you recall The most famous reindeer of all? Rudolph the red-nose reindeer, Had a very shiny nose And if you ever saw it, You would even say it glows All of the other reindeer, Used to laugh and call him names; They never let poor Rudolph, Join in any reindeer games Then one foggy Christmas Eve, Santa came to say Rudolph with your nose so bright, Won't you guide my sleigh tonight? Then all the other reindeer loved him, As they shouted out with glee Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer, You'll go down in history You'll go down in history

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

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire Jack Frost nipping at your nose Yuletide carols being sung by a choir And folks dressed up from head to toe Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe Help to make the season bright Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow Will find it hard to sleep tonight They know that Santa's on his way He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh And every mother's child is gonna spy To see if reindeers really know how to fly And so I'm offering this simple phrase To kids from one to ninety-two Although it's been said many times, many ways Merry Christmas to you Merry Christmas to you
