Worship Songs for December 17, 2017

 

Angels from the Realms of Glory ~ Hymn #131

 

Angels, from the realms of glory, wing your flight o'er all the earth;

Ye who sang creation's story, now proclaim Messiah's birth:

Come and worship, come and worship, worship Christ, the newborn King.

 

Shepherds, in the fields abiding, watching o'er your flocks by night,

God with man is now residing, yonder shines the infant Light:

Come and worship, come and worship, worship Christ, the newborn King.

 

Saints before the altar bending, watching long in hope and fear,

Suddenly the Lord, descending, in His temple shall appear:

Come and worship, come and worship, worship Christ, the newborn King.

 

All creation join in praising, God, the Father, Spirit, Son;

Evermore your voices raising, to the eternal Three in One.

Come and worship, come and worship, worship Christ, the newborn King.

O Little Town of Bethlehem ~ Hymn #141

 

O 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.

 

For Christ is born of Mary, and gathered all above,

While mortals sleep, the angels keep their watch of wondering love.

O morning stars, together proclaim the holy birth!

And praises sing to God the King, and peace to men on earth.

 

How silently, how silently the wondrous gift is given!

So God imparts to human hearts the blessings of His heav'n.

No ear may hear His coming, but in this world of sin,

Where meek souls will receive Him still the dear Christ enters in.

 

O holy Child of Bethlehem! descend to us we pray;

Cast out our sin, and enter in; be born in us today.

We hear the Christmas angels the great glad tidings tell;

O come to us, abide with us, our Lord Emmanuel.

While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks ~ Hymn #135

 

While shepherds watched their flocks by night, all seated on the ground,

The angel of the Lord came down, and glory shone around, and glory shone around.

 

Fear not! said he; for mighty dread had seized their troubled mind,

Glad tidings of great joy I bring to you and all mankind, to you and all mankind.

 

To you, in David's town this day, is born of David's line,

The Savior who is Christ the Lord, and this shall be the sign: and this shall be the sign:

 

The heavenly Babe you there shall find to human view displayed,

All meanly wrapped in swathing bands, and in a manger laid; and in a manger laid;

 

All glory be to God on high, and to the earth be peace:

Good will hence forth from heaven to men, begin and never cease, begin and never cease.

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen

 

God rest ye merry gentlemen, let nothing you dismay;

Remember Christ, our Savior, was born on Christmas Day;

To save us all from Satan's pow'r, when we were gone astray:

 

Chorus:        O tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy, O tidings of comfort and joy.

 

In Bethlehem, in Jewry, this blessed Babe was born;

And laid within a manger, upon this blessed morn,

The which, His mother Mary, did nothing take in scorn:  ~ (chorus)

 

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:  ~ (chorus)

 

Fear not, then said the angel, Let nothing you affright,

This day is born a Savior of a pure virgin bright; 

To free all those, who trust in Him, from Satan's pow'r and might:  ~ (chorus)

 

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:  ~ (chorus)

Go Tell It on the Mountain ~ Hymn #138

 

Chorus:        Go tell it on the mountain, over the hills and ev'rywhere;

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.

 

The shepherds feared and trembled when, lo! above the earth

Rang out the angel chorus that hailed our Savior's birth.

 

Down in a lowly manger the humble Christ was born

And God sent us salvation that blessed Christmas morn.

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
