Track Name: 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.

for christ is born of mary, and gathered all above
while mortals sleep, the angels keep their watch of wondering love
oh morning stars together, proclaim the holy birth
and praises sing to god the king, and peace to men on earth.

the hopes and fears of all the years, are met in thee tonight.
Track Name: Jingles We Have Heard On High
angels we have heard on high
sweetly singing over the plains
and the mountains in reply
echoing their joyous strain.

come to bethlehem and see
christ whose birth the angels sing
come adore on bended knee
christ the lord the new born king.

gloria, in excelsis deo.

jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way.

see him in a manger laid
whom the choirs of angels praise
mary, joseph lend your aid
while our hearts in love we raise.

gloria, in excelsis deo.
Track Name: Christmas Spirit
breath above hats and heavy winter coats,
in search of tree to lie presents underneath.
joy in the air, pine needles at our feet.
christmas spirit is in us, and everyone else we meet.

now, back inside setting fire to that place,
the flames warm the air bringing color to our faces.
cocoa by the fire, in our flannel pajamas.
christmas spirit is in us, and everyone else we see.

kids wake their parents up
'cause they've waited long enough for this day to come.
it's christmas, christmas, christmas day once again.

falling backwards in the snow
bodies turn into angels
saving us from our busy lives for just one day
thank god for this holiday.

it's christmas, christmas, christmas day once again.

christmas spirit's inside us
christmas spirit's inside of us and everyone else we meet.
Track Name: This Will Be Love For Now
this Christmas I'll do everything different
I'll place you on top of my tree,
and this will be love for now.

there will be no stumbling down the steps
when the night has shown it's darkness
to try to spot a man in Red.
I won't even sneak a peek at what's in my sock
hanging above the fire.

I made this journey solely to look up at you,
and this will be love for now.

and this will be love for now.
Track Name: 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.
