4 SUNDAY, DECEMBER 24, 2017 ANGELS WE HAVE HEARD ON HIGH Angels we have heard on high, sweetly singing o'er the plains, and the mountains in reply echo back their joyous strains. Gloria in excelsis Deo, Gloria in excelsis Deo. Shepherds, why this jubilee? Why your joyous strains prolong? Say what may the tidings be, which inspire your heavenly song? Gloria in excelsis Deo, Gloria in excelsis Deo. Come to Bethlehem, and see Him Whose birth the angels sing; Come, adore on bended knee Christ the Lord, the newborn King. Gloria in excelsis Deo, Gloria in excelsis Deo. GO, TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN Go, tell it on the mountain, over the hills and ev rywhere; While shepherds kept their watching o'er silent flocks by night, behold, throughout the heavens there shone a holy light. Go, tell it on the mountain, over the hills and ev rywhere; The shepherds feared and trembled when, lo! above the earth rang out the angel chorus that hailed the Savior s birth. Go, tell it on the mountain, over the hills and ev rywhere; Down in a lowly manger, the humble Christ was born, and God sent us salvation that blessed Christmas morn. Go, tell it on the mountain, over the hills and ev rywhere;

5 JOY TO THE WORLD Joy to the world! The Lord is come, let earth receive her King. Let ev ry heart prepare Him room, and heav n and nature sing, and heav n and nature sing, and heav n, and heav n and nature sing. Joy to the earth! The Savior 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. No more let sins and sorrows grow, nor thorns infest the ground. He comes to make His blessings flow far as the curse is found, far as the curse is found, far as, far as the curse is found. 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. 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; O sing, all ye bright hosts of heav'n above. Glory to God, all 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! Yea, Lord, we greet Thee, born this happy morning, Jesus, to Thee be all glory giv n; 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! True God of true God, Light from Light eternal, Lo, He shuns not the virgin s womb; Son of the Father,begotten, not created; O come, let us adore Him, O come, let us adore Him, O come, let us adore Him, Christ the Lord!

6 ANGELS FROM THE REALMS OF GLORY Angels from the realms of glory, wing your flight o'er all the earth; Ye who sang creation's story, now proclaim Messiah's birth: Come and worship, come and worship, worship Christ, the newborn King. Shepherds, in the fields abiding, watching o'er your flocks by night, God with man is now residing, yonder shines the infant Light: Come and worship, come and worship, worship Christ, the newborn King. Sages, leave your contemplations, brighter visions beam afar. Seek the great Desire of nations, Ye have seen His natal star: Come and worship, come and worship, worship Christ, the newborn King. Saints before the altar bending, watching long in hope and fear; Suddenly the Lord, descending, in His temple shall appear: Come and worship, come and worship, worship Christ, the newborn King.

7 CHOIR ANTHEM ON THIS CHRSTMAS DAY When darkness falls and night is long, when my heart fails and doubt is strong, I hear the sound, an angel song, from Bethlehem today. It gives me hope, hope, hope rising like the sun, and I m watching shadows on the run. It gives me hope, hope, hope when I breathe Your name, singing, Glory to God on this Christmas day. When storms arise and oceans rage in troubled seas I have to face, the manger says, Be not afraid! Jesus is born to save! It gives me peace, peace, peace, and the waves are stilled. I am resting in Your Word fulfilled! It gives me peace, peace, peace that I can t explain, singing, Glory to God on this Christmas day. And in this world of war and strife where fires of hate touch ev ry life, I have no strength to set it right, but then You make a way Cause You are love, love, love, and You re all I need, You re a fountain running true and deep. You are love, love, love, now I give you praise, singing, Glory to God on this Christmas day! You are my Hope, my Prince of Peace. I will lift my voice to the Savior King. My ev ry song will bless Your name, singing, Gloria today. Now in the hope of who You are, and in the peace You give my heart, to think that love would come so far, this hallelujah starts. Oh, there is joy, joy, joy, I will shout and sing. Let my praise be worthy of my King! There is joy, joy, joy, heav n and earth proclaim, singing, Glory to God on this Christmas day! Oh, there is joy, joy, joy, I will shout and sing. Let my praise be worthy of my King! There is joy, joy, joy, heav n and earth proclaim, singing, Glory to God on this Christmas day! Singing, Glory to God on this Christmas day. We re singing! We re shouting! Our God has come to save! We re singing! We re shouting! Joy to the world! On this Christmas day!

8 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, 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. INVITATION 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 th'angelic host proclaim, "Christ is born in Bethlehem!" Hark! the herald angels sing, "Glory to the newborn King." Christ, by highest heav'n adored; Christ, the everlasting Lord! Late in time behold Him come, offspring of the Virgin's womb: Veiled in flesh the Godhead see, hail th'incarnate Deity, pleased as man with men to dwell, Jesus, our Emmanuel. Hark! the herald angels sing, "Glory to the newborn King." Hail the heav'n born Prince of Peace! Hail the Son of Righteousness! Light and life to all He brings, ris'n with healing in His wings. Mild He lays His glory by, born that man no more may die; Born to raise the sons of earth, born to give them second birth. Hark! the herald angels sing, "Glory to the newborn King."

9 OFFERTORY WHAT CHILD IS THIS? What Child is this, who, laid to rest, on Mary s lap is sleeping? Whom angels greet with anthems sweet, while shepherds watch are keeping? This, this is Christ the King, whom shepherds guard and angels sing. Haste, haste to bring him laud; The Babe, the Son of Mary. Why lies He in such mean estate, where ox and sheep are feeding? Good Christian, fear, for sinners here the silent Word is pleading. This, this is Christ the King, whom shepherds guard and angels sing. Haste, haste to bring him laud; The Babe, the Son of Mary. So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh, come peasant, king to own Him. The King of kings salvation brings, let loving hearts enthrone Him. This, this is Christ the King, whom shepherds guard and angels sing. Haste, haste to bring him laud; The Babe, the Son of Mary. This, this is Christ the King, whom shepherds guard and angels sing. Haste, haste to bring him laud; The Babe, the Son of Mary. GO, TELL IT ON THE MOUNTAIN Go, tell it on the mountain, over the hills and ev rywhere;
