CROESO READING AND DISTRICT WELSH SOCIETY CHRISTMAS PARTY 2014
Joy to the World 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 heaven and nature sing. Joy to the earth, the Saviour reigns; Let men their songs employ; While fields and floods, Rocks, hills and plains Repeat the sounding joy, Repeat, repeat the sounding joy.
Pass the Parcel

The holly and the ivy The holly and the ivy, When they are both full grown, Of all trees that are in the wood, The holly bears the crown (Refrain:) O, the rising of the sun, And the running of the deer The playing of the merry organ, Sweet singing in the choir. (Refrain:) The holly bears a blossom, As white as lily flow'r, And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ, To be our dear Saviour ( Refrain:)
The holly bears a berry, As red as any blood, And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ, To do poor sinners good (Refrain:) The holly bears a prickle, As sharp as any thorn, And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ, On Christmas Day in the morn (Refrain:) The holly bears a bark, As bitter as the gall, And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ, For to redeem us all (Refrain:) The holly and the ivy, When they are both full grown, Of all trees that are in the wood, The holly bears the crown

In the bleak midwinter In the bleak midwinter, frosty wind made moan, earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone; snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow, in the bleak midwinter, long ago. Our God, heaven cannot hold him, nor earth sustain; heaven and earth shall flee away when he comes to reign. In the bleak midwinter a stable place sufficed the Lord God Almighty, Jesus Christ. What can I give him, poor as I am? If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb; if I were a Wise Man, I would do my part; yet what I can I give him: give my heart.
Let it Snow Oh the weather outside is frightful But the fire is so delightful And since we've no place to go Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! It doesn't show signs of stopping And I've bought some corn for popping The lights are turned way down low Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! When we finally kiss good night How I'll hate going out in the storm! But if you'll really hold me tight All the way home I'll be warm The fire is slowly dying And, my dear, we're still goodbying But as long as you love me so Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

Have yourself a Merry little Christmas Have yourself a Merry little Christmas, Have yourself a Merry little Christmas, Let your heart be light From now on, our troubles will be out of sight Have yourself a merry little Christmas, Make the Yule-tide gay, From now on, our troubles will be miles away. Here we are as in olden days, Happy golden days of yore. Faithful friends who are dear to us Gather near to us once more. Through the years We all will be together, If the Fates allow Hang a shining star upon the highest bough. And have yourself A merry little Christmas now.

Silver bells City sidewalks, busy sidewalks. Dressed in holiday style In the air There's a feeling of Christmas Children laughing People passing Meeting smile after smile and on every street corner you'll hear (Chorus) Silver bells, silver bells It's Christmas time in the city Ring-a-ling, hear them sing. Soon it will be Christmas day Strings of street lights. Even stop lights Blink a bright red and green. As the shoppers rush home with their treasures Hear the snow crunch See the kids bunch This is Santa's big scene And above all this bustle You'll hear (Chorus) Silver bells, silver bells It's Christmas time in the city Ring-a-ling, hear them sing Soon it will be Christmas day

White Christmas I'm dreaming of a White Christmas, Just like the ones I used to know Where the treetops glisten, and children listen To hear sleigh bells in the snow I'm dreaming of a white Christmas With every Christmas card I write May your days be merry and bright And may all your Christmases be white

Good Christian men, rejoice Good Christian men, rejoice with heart and soul and voice; give ye heed to what we say: Jesus Christ is born today; ox and ass before him bow, and he is in the manger now. Christ is born today! Christ is born today! Good Christian men, rejoice with heart and soul and voice; now ye hear of endless bliss; Jesus Christ is born for this! He hath opened heaven's door, and man is blessèd evermore. Christ was born for this! Christ was born for this! Good Christian men, rejoice with heart and soul and voice; now ye need not fear the grave: Jesus Christ was born to save! Calls you one and calls you all to gain his everlasting hall. Christ was born to save! Christ was born to save!
