Here's what we're singing on Sundays:

Angels We Have Heard On High
 

Verse 1:

Angels we have heard on high
Sweetly singing o'er the plains
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strains

Chorus:

Gloria in Excelsis Deo
Gloria in Excelsis Deo

Verse 2:

Shepherds, why this jubilee?
Why your joyous strains prolong?
What the gladsome tidings be
Which inspire your heavenly song

Chorus:

Gloria in Excelsis Deo
Gloria in Excelsis Deo

Verse 3:

Come to Bethlehem and see
Him whose birth the angels sing
Come adore on bended knee
Christ our Lord, the new born King

Chorus:

Gloria in Excelsis Deo
Gloria in Excelsis Deo
Gloria in Excelsis Deo
Gloria in Excelsis Deo

 

 

Emmanuel

He was not the one we thought would come
We were looking for a King
But He didn't come in glory
The Author of the oceans and the sun
Still he chose to be
Written in our story

 

So He could fill our flesh and blood
And we could know His love

 

Emmanuel, A manger for a bed
No crown upon His head
He came like us instead
Emmanuel, He meets you where you are
He holds your heavy heart
Our God is with us all
Emmanuel, Emmanuel

 

It was no mistake that He arrived
Lost without a home
Helpless as a baby
So if we're feeling lost in our own lives
We are not alone
He has felt the same thing

Because he lived in flesh and blood
We can know His love

Emmanuel, A manger for a bed
No crown upon His head
He came like us instead
Emmanuel, He meets you where you are
He holds your heavy heart
Our God is with us all
Emmanuel
Emmanuel

Oh what an invitation
Oh His only expectation
Is for us to come and offer Him our all

To kneel before the child who shall be called

Emmanuel, a manger for a bed
No crown upon His head
He came like us instead
Emmanuel, He meets you where you are
He holds your heavy heart
Our God is with us all
Emmanuel
Emmanuel

 

 

Hymn of Joy

Joyful, joyful, we adore thee
God of glory, Lord of love
Hearts unfold like flowers before thee
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

 

Rejoice, rejoice
Emmanuel
Your love has come
Here to dwell

 

All thy works with joy surround thee
Earth and heaven reflect thy rays
Stars and angels sing around thee
Center of unbroken praise

 

Field and forest
Vale and mountain
Flowry meadow, flashing sea
Singing bird and flowing fountain
Call us to rejoice in thee

 

Rejoice, rejoice
Emmanuel
Your love has come
Here to dwell

Rejoice, rejoice
Emmanuel
Your love has come
Here to dwell

 

Mortals join the happy chorus
Which the morning stars began
Father love is reigning over us
Brotherly love binds man to man

 

Ever singing march we onward
Victors in the midst of strife
Joyful music leads us sunward
In the triumph song of life


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

 

Hallelujah hallelujah
The King has come

Yes Lord we greet Thee
Born this happy morning
Jesus to Thee be the glory given
Word of the Father now in flesh appearing

 

O come let us adore Him
O come let us adore Him
O come let us adore Him
Christ the Lord

 

Hallelujah hallelujah
The King has come

Oh come all ye faithful
Come let us adore Him
Oh sing hallelujah
Come let us adore Him



 

Softly and Tenderly

Now we'd like to settle things down just a bit
And sing one of favorite sacred songs
Tonight I've chosen one that's long been a favorite of mine
And I hope it's one of your favorites
Softly and tenderly

Softly and tenderly
Jesus is calling
Calling for you and for me
See on the portal
He's watching and waiting
Waitin' for you and for me

Come home
Come ho-ome
He who are wary
Come ho-ome
Ernestly, tenderly
Jesus is calling
Calling, oh sinner
Come home

Come home
Come ho-ome
He who are wary
Come ho-o-ome
Ernestly, tenderly
Jesus is calling
Calling, oh sinner
Come home
