Can you hear the sound of Christmas

Placeholder for audio player [Will play '1-can-you-hear-the-sound-of-christmas-vocal-track.mp3']
C-H-R-I-S-T-M-A-S… CHRISTMAS!
Chorus:
Can you hear the sound,
Can you hear the sound,
Can you hear the sound of Christmas? (X4)

1) Can you hear the reindeers in the snow?
Can you hear a jolly ho, ho, ho?
Can you hear the sleigh bells ringing out?
If you can give a Christmas SHOUT!

(chorus)
2) Can you hear the carols loudly sung?
Can you hear the stockings being hung?
Can you hear the church bells ringing clear?
If you can give a Christmas CHEER!

3) And beneath all the noise of the hustle
and bustle of twenty-first century Christmas time,
Listen hard enough and you may hear,
The Christmas sounds of years gone by.
The wonderful cry of a new born baby boy,
The excitement of new parents filled with joy,
A choir of angel voices, on a bright new dawn,
Proclaiming that the Saviour of the world is born.

Link: Are you ready? Let’s go.
Give me a C, give me a H,
Give me an R, give me an I,
Give me an S, give me a T,
Give me an M, give me an A,
Give me an S, put it together,
CHRISTMAS!
(Repeat chorus & shout “CHRISTMAS” once to finish)

Heavenly News

Placeholder for audio player [Will play '2-heavenly-news-vocal-track.mp3']
Chorus:
Heavenly news, come and read all about it.
Heavenly news, come and hear how excited,
Mary and Joseph are today,
There’s a new baby on the way! (X2)

1) It all started with a funny noise,
A gust of wind and a flash of light,
And there right before Mary’s eyes,
Stood a large angel clothed in white,
He slowly unfurled both his wings,
His halo shone so very bright,
“Do not be afraid,” he said,
“Everything’s ‘gonna’ be alright!”
(Repeat chorus)

2) As Mary recovered from her shock,
The angel said, “Put away your fright,
I come with tidings of great joy,
Real heavenly news to excite,
From all the women in the world,
God’s picked you and He’s chosen right,
He wants you Mary to bear His Son,
His name will be Jesus Christ!” (Repeat chorus)

Rocking and Rolling down to Bethlehem

Placeholder for audio player [Will play '3-rocking-and-rolling-down-to-bethlehem-vocal-track.mp3']
1) Rocking and rolling down to Bethlehem,
The donkey is rocking,
Mary’s rolling around,
Rocking and rolling down to Bethlehem,
We’ll just keep on going,
Along the rocky ground.

Chorus:
Rocking and rolling down to Bethlehem. (X2)

2) Rocking and rolling down to Bethlehem,
Poor Mary is rocking,
Her fed up eyes rolling,
Rocking and rolling down to Bethlehem,
We’ll just keep on going,
There’s no time for stopping.

(Repeat chorus)

Rap:
Eighty miles is a long, long way,
On a dusty, rocky road,
Through the scorching sun during the day,
And the dark night very cold.
However you go it’s a couple of days,
From Nazareth to Bethlehem,
But at least poor Mary and Joseph,
Had a donkey to help them.
(Repeat verse 1, then the chorus line three times to finish)

But my inn is so full,
All’s free is my stable,
Stay there if that will do. (X2)

Sleeping in the stable, baby Jesus lay,
Sleeping in a manger, full of comfy hay,
Sleeping in the stable, of this cosy inn,
Sleeping while the angels, watch over him.

No noises do they make,

“Jesus do not wake.”

A special star shines bright,
To tell the world a King,
Has been born this night.

Of peace on earth to men good will,
For Christ is born a baby,
Now our song keeps flowing,

To praise him.

Marvellous Magnificent Magical Magi

Placeholder for audio player [Will play '7-marvellous-magnificent-magical-magi-vocal-track.mp3']
All: Roll up, roll up and see a splendid sight.
The marvellous, magnificent, magical magi,
Coming to a town near you,
You won’t believe your eyes,
The marvellous, magnificent, magical magi.

Magi: We’ll pull a rabbit from a hat,
Make it disappear like that,
We’ll even saw you in half.
We’ll try to put you back again,
You might feel a little pain,
Don’t panic we’re just having a laugh!
Ha-ha-ha!
(Repeat chorus - all)

Magi: All other magic acts you see,
Aren’t as good as us three,
They have got nothing on us,
Poppins can pop, Gandalf can go,
Harry Potter you’re too slow,
To all we say expelliarmus! Us-us-us!

(Repeat chorus - all)

Magi: Magic doesn’t exist of course,
We just do tricks, sometimes use the force,
But we can do one special thing,
A little bit of star gazing,
Which has led us here, to Bethlehem,
To worship Jesus,
That’s why we’re the wise men.

All: Roll up, roll up and see a splendid sight.
The marvellous, magnificent,
Newborn King Jesus.
We’ve come here to worship Him,
That’s why we are so wise,
The marvellous, magnificent,
Newborn King Jesus.
Jesus.

Christ the Saviour, who has been born.
Don’t worry if, you’ve brought nothing,
Just lay yourself, before the King.

Come leave your pain,

We are all in, the presence of,
The prince of peace, the King of love.

Laid Him in a manger,
