Christmas Eve Lyrics and Verses

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
Sing all ye citizens of heaven
Glory to God, glory in the highest

You alone are deserving, You are God most high
To You alone be all glory, the Savior of my life
Yea, Lord, we greet Thee, born this holy morning
Jesus, to Thee be all glory
Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing

We’ll give You all the glory, We’ll give You all the glory
We’ll give You all the glory, Jesus…
For You alone are worthy, For You alone are worthy
For You alone are worthy, Jesus

Scripture Reading: Isaiah 9:2-3 and 9:6-7

The people who walked in darkness
    have seen a great light;
those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness,
    on them has light shone.
You have multiplied the nation;
    you have increased its joy;
they rejoice before you
    as with joy at the harvest,
    as they are glad when they divide the spoil.
 For to us a child is born,
    to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
    and his name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
 Of the increase of his government and of peace
    there will be no end,
on the throne of David and over his kingdom,
    to establish it and to uphold it
with justice and with righteousness
    from this time forth and forevermore.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.

JOY TO THE WORLD/OUR GOD SAVES

Joy to the world, the Lord is come, let earth receive her King
Let every heart prepare Him room
And Heaven and nature sing, and Heaven and nature sing
And Heaven, and Heaven, and nature sing

Joy to the World, the Savior reigns! Let men their songs employ
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy, repeat the sounding joy
Repeat, repeat, the sounding joy
rules the world with truth and grace
And makes the nations prove
The light of His righteousness
And wonders of His love
And wonders of His love
And wonders of His love
And wonders, wonders, of His love
And wonders, wonders, of His love

Hear the joyful sound of our offering
As Your saints bow down as Your people sing
We will rise with You lifted on Your wings and the world will see that
Our God saves, our God saves… there is hope in Your Name

You rule the world with truth and grace, and make the nations prove
The glories of Your righteousness
And wonders of Your love, and wonders of Your love
And wonders, wonders, of Your love

Hear the joyful sound of our offering
As Your saints bow down as Your people sing
We will rise with You lifted on Your wings and the world will see that
Our God saves, our God saves… there is hope in Your Name
Mourning turns to songs of praise, Our God saves our God saves

Joy to the world, the Lord is come…
Joy to the world, the Lord is come…
You rule the world with truth and grace…
You rule the world with truth and grace…

Scripture Reading: Micah 5:2-5

But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah,
    who are too little to be among the clans of Judah,
from you shall come forth for me
    one who is to be ruler in Israel,
whose coming forth is from of old,
    from ancient days.
Therefore he shall give them up until the time
    when she who is in labor has given birth;
then the rest of his brothers shall return
    to the people of Israel.
And he shall stand and shepherd his flock in the strength of the Lord,
    in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God.
And they shall dwell secure, for now he shall be great
    to the ends of the earth.
And he shall be their peace.

BREATH OF HEAVEN – SOLO BY YIDUO

Scripture Reading: Luke 2:1-20

In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered.  This was the first registration when Quirinius was governor of Syria.  And all went to be registered, each to his own town.  And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the town of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David,  to be registered with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child.  And while they were there, the time came for her to give birth.  And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.

 And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear.  And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people.  For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.  And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.”  And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,

 “Glory to God in the highest,
    and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!”

When the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has made known to us.”  And they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in a manger.  And when they saw it, they made known the saying that had been told them concerning this child.  And all who heard it wondered at what the shepherds told them.  But Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart.  And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen, as it had been told them.

JOYFUL JOYFUL WE ADORE THEE

Joyful joyful we adore You, God of glory Lord of love
Hearts unfold like flowers before You opening to the sun above
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness drive the dark of doubt away
Giver of immortal gladness fill us with the light of day

All Your works with joy surround You, earth and heaven reflect Your rays
Stars and angels sing around You, center of unbroken praise
Field and forest vale and mountain, flowery meadow flashing sea
Singing bird and flowing fountain call us to rejoice in Thee

Rejoice rejoice our God is here with us
Emmanuel our God is still with us

Mortals join the happy chorus which the morning stars began
Father love is reigning over us, brother love binds all mankind
Ever singing march we onward victors in the midst of strife
Joyful music leads us sunward in the triumph song of life

Rejoice, rejoice, our God is here with us
Emmanuel, our God is still with us
Rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel
Your Love is here, our king is here to dwell

O HOLY NIGHT

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 soul rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn

Fall on your knees, O hear the angel voices!

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 power and glory evermore proclaim
His power and glory evermore proclaim

Fall on your knees, O hear the angel voices!
O night divine, O night when Christ was born
O night divine O night, O night divine!

**Make sure you have a candle for the lighting to follow**

I’LL GIVE HIM MY HEART – SOLO BY MACKENZIE FRUTOS

ALL GLORY BE TO CHRIST

Should nothing of our efforts stand, no legacy survive
Unless the Lord does raise the house, in vain its builders strive
To you who boast tomorrow’s gain, tell me what is your life
A mist that vanishes at dawn, all glory be to Christ

All glory be to Christ our king, all glory be to Christ
His rule and reign we’ll ever sing, all glory be to Christ

His will be done His kingdom come, on earth as is above
Who is Himself our daily bread, praise Him the Lord of love
Let living water satisfy the thirsty without price
We’ll take a cup of kindness yet, all glory be to Christ

All glory be to Christ our king, all glory be to Christ
His rule and reign we’ll ever sing, all glory be to Christ

When on the day the great I Am, the faithful and the true
The Lamb who was for sinners slain is making all things new
Behold our God shall live with us and be our steadfast light
And we shall ever his people be, all glory be to Christ

All glory be to Christ our king, all glory be to Christ
His rule and reign we’ll ever sing, all glory be to Christ
