Track Name: HYSAMLXMAS
Have yourself a merry little christmas
Let your heart be light
From now on our troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little christmas
Make the yuletide gay
From now on our troubles will be miles away

Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends that are dear to us
Gather near to us once more!

Through the years we all will be together
If the fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bow

And have yourself a merry little christmas now!
Track Name: Our Finest Gifts
Come they told me
A newborn king to see
Our finest gifts we bring
To lay before the king

So to honor him
Pah rum pah pum pum
When we come

Little baby
I am a poor boy too
I have no gift to bring
That's fit to give our king

Shall I play for you
Pah rum pah pum pum
On my drum

Mary nodded
The ox and lamb kept time
I played my drum for him
I played my best for him

Then he smiled at me
Pah rum pah pum pum
Me and my drum
Track Name: Good King Wenceslas
Good King Wenceslas looked out
On the feast of Stephen
When the snow lay round about
Deep and crisp and even
Brightly shone the moon that night
Though the frost was cruel
When a poor man came in sight
Gath'ring winter fuel

"Hither page and stand by me
If thou know'st it, telling
Yonder peasant, who is he?
Where and what his dwelling?"
"Sire he lives a good league hence
Underneath the mountain
Right against the forest fence
By St Agnes fountain"

"Bring me flesh and bring me wine
Bring me pine logs hither
Thou and I will see him dine
When we bear him thither"
Page and monarch forth they went
Forth they went together
Through the rude wind's wild lament
And the bitter weather

"Sire, the night is darker now
And the wind blows stronger
Fails my heart, I know not how
I can go no longer"
"Mark my footsteps, my good page
Tread thou in them boldly
Thou shalt find the winter's rage
Freeze thy blood less coldly"

In his master's steps he trod
Where the snow lay dinted
Heat was in the very sod
Which the Saint had printed
Therefore, christian men be sure
Wealth or rank possessing
Ye who now will bless the poor
Shall yourselves find blessing
Track Name: Oh Christmas Tree
Oh christmas tree
Oh christmas tree
How lovely are thy branches

Your boughs so green in summertime
Stay bravely green in wintertime

Oh christmas tree
Oh christmas tree
How lovely are thy branches

Oh tannenbaum
Oh tannenbaum
How lovely are thy branches

The pillars all please faithfully
Our trust in God unchangedly

Oh tannenbaum
Oh tannenbaum
How lovely are thy branches
Track Name: Merry Christmas Now
Christmastime can be hard
When all has fallen apart
But don't forget to see
How the lights wake up your tree

Sleeping little child
I cannot be mild
But you have made me room
And not an hour too soon

Christmas carols smart
For friends with broken hearts
But we sing that you may know
That we still love you so

Merry Christmas now!
Merry Christmas now!
Merry Christmas now!
Merry Christmas now!
