Year 6 Carol Service Songs

It's a magical time

It's a magical time ( with singing)

It's a magical time (instrumental)

Chorus

It's a magical time of the year,

It's a time to enjoy the celebrations.

There's a wonderful song in the air,

The message of Christmas for the world to hear.

 

1. Carols and choirs,

Warm open fires,

Pictures of every December,

Tinsel and glitter,

Candles a-flicker,

These are the things we all remeber.

 

Chorus

 

2. Lights in the window,

Cold winds blow,

Pictures of every Decemebr,

Holly and ivy,

Snow on the pine trees,

These are the things we all remeber.

 

Chorus

 

3. Last-minute shopping,

Presents and stockings,

Pictures of every December,

Uncles and Aunties,

Crackers and parties,

These are the things we all remember.

 

Chorus

Chorus

The message of Christmas for the world to hear.

The message of Christmas for the world - to - hear.

 

 

 

 

 

It was on a starry night

It was on a starry night

It was on a starry night,

when the hills were bright,

Earth lay sleeping, sleeping calm and still.

Then in a  cattle shed, in a manger bed, 

a boy was born, king of all the world.

 

Chorus

And all the angels sang for him, the bells of heaven rang for him for a boy was born, king of all the world.

And all the angels sang for him, the bells of heaven rang for him for a boy was born, king of all the world.

 

Soon the shepherds came that way

where the baby lay

and were kneeling, kneeling by his side.

And their hearts believed again for the peace of men,

for a boy was born,

king of all the world.

 

Chorus

Do you hear what I hear?

Do you hear what I hear (instrumental)

Do you hear what I hear (with singing)

Said the night wind to the little lamb,
do you see what I see
Way up in the sky, little lamb,
do you see what I see
A star, a star, dancing in the night
With a tail as big as a kite
With a tail as big as a kite

Said the little lamb to the shepherd boy,
do you hear what I hear
Ringing through the sky, shepherd boy,
do you hear what I hear
A song, a song, high above the trees
With a voice as big as the sea
With a voice as big as the sea

 

Said the shepherd boy to the mighty king,
do you know what I know
In your palace warm, mighty king,
do you know what I know
A Child, a Child shivers in the cold
Let us bring Him silver and gold
Let us bring Him silver and gold

 

Said the king to the people everywhere,
listen to what I say
Pray for peace, people everywhere!
listen to what I say
The Child, the Child, sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light
He will bring us goodness and light

The winter's night

The winters night (performance track all voices)

The winters night (backing track)

The winters night (rehersal track melody 6D 6H 6G)

The winters night (rehersal track countermelody higher 6B)

The winters night (rehersal track countermelody lower 6A)

The gentle moon,

A silver light,

An icy chill,

This winter's night.

 

The heavy sky,

With stars so bright,

Twinkle on,

This winter's night.

 

Slowly the first flakes fall.

Softly no sound at all.

 

And in the evening, when we're asleep,

A downy blanket soon covers deep.

Peaceful, silent,and endless white.

The promise of snow

On this winter's night.

 

MELODY: The glist'ning frost,

A magic light

Not long now,

This winter's night.

 

COUNTERMELODY: Slowly, the first flakes fall.

Softly, no sound at all.

 

And in the evening, when we're asleep,

A downy blanket soon covers deep.

Peaceful, silent, an endless white (x3)

The promise of snow

On this winter's night.

[Intro](Dm da da dm

The fireplace is burning bright, shining all on me.
I see the presents underneath the good old Christmas tree.
And I wait all night 'til Santa comes to wake me from my dreams,
Oh, why? Cos that's Christmas to me.

I see the children play outside, like angels in the snow.
While Mom and Daddy share a kiss under the mistletoe.
And we'll cherish all these simple things wherever we may be,
Oh, why? Cos that's Christmas to me.

 

I've got this Christmas song in my heart (song in my heart),
I've got the candles glowing in the dark.
I'm hanging all the stockings by the Christmas tree,

Oh, why? Cos that's Christmas to me.
Oh, why? Cos that's Christmas to me.

 

I listen for the thud of reindeer walking on the roof.
As I fall asleep to lullabies, the morning's coming soon.
The only gift I'll ever need is the joy of family,
Oh, why? Cos that's Christmas to me.

 

I've got this Christmas song in my heart (song in my heart),
I've got the candles glowing in the dark.
I'm hanging all the stockings by the Christmas tree,

Oh, why? Cos that's Christmas to me.
Oh, why? Cos that's Christmas to me.

 

(Dm da da dm

That's Christmas to me. (x6)
