4th grade Silent Night
5th grade Little Town of Bethlehem
6th grade O Come All Ye Faithful
7th grade Joy to the World
8th grade Do you Hear What I Hear, Great Day in Bethlehem

LYRICS:
(4th Grade) Silent Night
Silent, Night, Holy Night, all is calm, all is bright
Round yon Virgin, Mother and Child; Holy infant so tender and mild, Sleep in heavenly peace, sleep in heavenly peace.

Silent Night, Holy Night, Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from heaven afar;
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia
Christ the Savior is born, Christ the Savior is born


(5th Grade) O Little Town of Bethlehem
O little town of Bethlehem, how still we see thee lie. Above the 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 they holy birth. And praises sing to God the King and peace to all on earth.


(6th grade) 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 above.
Glory to God, glory in the highest
O come let us adore Him, O come let us adore Him O come let us adore Him, Christ the Lord.

(7th Grade) 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 nature sing,
And heaven, and heaven, and nature sing.

Joy to the world! the Saviour 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.

He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders, wonders, of His love.


(8th Grade) Do You Hear What I Hear
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? (girls bkgd)
Ringing through the sky, shepherd boy?
Do you hear what I hear? (boys bkgd)
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? (girls bkgd)
In your palace warm, mighty king?
Do you know what I know? (boys bkgd)
A Child, a Child, shivers in the cold, let us bring Him silver and gold, Let us bring Him silver and gold. (modulate)

Said the King to the people everywhere,
Listen to what I say, (both bkgd)
Pray for peace, people everywhere,
Listen to what I say, (both bkgd)
A Child, a Child, sleeping in the night, He will bring us goodness and light, He will bring us goodness and light.


(8th grade) Great Day in Bethlehem
Great day in Bethlehem, Great Day in Bethlehem
Great day in Bethlehem, in the stable in the back of the inn
(repeat 1x only)

The greatest story ever told was told on Christmas Day
Of two who came to Bethlehem, they’d come a long, long way

Weary, tired, dusty, worn, they knocked at every inn
There was a baby to be born, a new life to begin… and it’s a… (refrain)

After looking high and low in the crowded town
The only place where they could rest where they could both lie down

Was in a barn with animals, with goats and cows and sheep
There the two could make their bed, there the two could sleep. And it’s a…(refrain)

Late that night their son was born, a Son who was to be
A way for us to find the truth, a light for us to see
Angels cried, “O Glory be, Hosanna let us sing

Peace on earth, good will to all,
Today is born a King, and it’s a… (refrain)
