18 Centralian Advocate, Tuesday, December 6, 2011 P U B : C A D V D A T E : 6 -D E C -2 0 1 1 P A G E : 1 8 C O L O R : C M Y K Oh 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! (CHORUS) 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 above. Glory to God, glory in the highest! (CHORUS) Yea, Lord, we greet Thee, born this happy morning, Jesus, to Thee be all glory given! Word of the Father, now in fl esh appearing. (CHORUS) 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! (CHORUS) While Shepherds Watched While Shepherds watched their fl ocks by night All seated on the ground, The angel of the Lord came down And glory shone around. Fear not!, said He for mighty dread Had seized their troubled minds Glad tidings of great joy I bring To you and all mankind. To you, in Davids town this day, Is born of Davids line, The Saviour who is Christ the Lord; And this shall be the sign: The heavenly Babe you there shall fi nd To human view displayed, All wrapped in swaddling bands, And in manger laid. Thus spake the saraph and forthwith Appeared a shining throng Of angels praising God, and thus Addressed their joyful song All glory be to God on high, And to the earth be peace; Good will henceforth from heaven to men, Begin and never cease! We Three Kings We three kings of Orient are Bearing gifts we traverse afar. Field and fountain, Moor and mountain, Following yonder star. (CHORUS) O Star of wonder, star of night Star with royal beauty bright Westward leading, still proceeding Guide us to thy Perfect Light Born a King on Bethlehems plain, Gold I bring to crown Him again, King forever, ceasing never Over us all to reign. (CHORUS) Frankincense to offer have I. Incense owns a Deity nigh. Prayr and praising, all men raising, Worship Him, God most high. (CHORUS) Myrrh is mine: its bitter perfume Breathes a life of gathering gloom. Sorrowing, sighing, Bleeding, dying, Sealed in the stone-cold tomb. (CHORUS) Glorious now behold Him arise, King and God and Sacrifi ce. Hallelujah, Hallelujah! Earth to heavens replies. (CHORUS) Away in a Manger Away in a manger, no crib for a bed, The little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head; The stars in the bright sky look down where he lay The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay. The cattle are lowing, the baby awakes, But little Lord Jesus, no crying He makes; I love you Lord Jesus, look down from on high, And stay by my side until morning is nigh. Be near me Lord Jesus, I ask you to stay, Close by me forever and love me, I pray; Bless all the dear children in your tender care, And fi t us for heaven, to live with you there.
