WELCOME & INVOCATION
“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.
LIGHTING OF THE CHRISTMAS TREE
“Hark! The Herald Angels Sing”
Hark! The herald angels sing, Glory to the newborn King! Peace on earth and mercy mild, God and sinners reconciled! Joyful, all ye nations rise, Join the triumph of the skies; With angelic host proclaim Christ is born in Bethlehem! Hark! The herald angels sing, Glory to the newborn King!
“O Little Town of Bethlehem”
O little town of Bethlehem, How still we see thee lie! Above thy 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.
GREETINGS FROM OUR MAYOR
Dashing through the snow In a one-horse open sleigh O’er the fields we go Laughing all the way! Bells on bobtails ring Making spirits bright. What fun it is to ride and sing A sleighing song tonight, oh! Jingle bells, jingle bells Jingle all the way! Oh, what fun it is to ride In a one-horse open sleigh, hey! Jingle bells, jingle bells Jingle all the way! Oh, what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh!
“It Came Upon the Midnight Clear”
It came upon the midnight clear, That glorious song of old, From angels bending near the earth To touch their harps of gold. “Peace on the earth, good will to men, From heav’n’s all-gracious King.” The world in solemn stillness lay, To hear the angels sing.
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 Son of God, love’s pure light, Radiant beams from thy holy face, With the dawn of redeeming grace, Jesus, Lord, at thy birth, Jesus, Lord, at thy birth!
