Track Name: This Christmas Eve
I know that it's over now
the way we used to be
the place we used to sing

I know nothing is the same
the highways that we drive
are lit with different lights

but I know you are here with me
and nothing that is gone
can steal away our song

so sing with me once more
sing with me once more

we haven't lost slim Whitman on the record player dear
and we have lost those Christmas mugs we use just once a year
and we haven't lost the story of a baby who is king
and we haven't lost our love this Christmas Eve

I know that it's pouring rain
and everything is wet
and nothing's left unsaid

and It's clear, I'm the one to blame
the choices that I've made
the selfishness I hate

I know that we barely know
the way that this will end
the story that is left

but I know you are here now
I know you are here now
Track Name: 400 Years of Silence
I have been singing loud for as long as i can
remember as child walking to the tent of
congregation congregation gathered round

somewhere along the way I have lost the feeling
but everyone laughed and sang to the tune of future revelation revelation some bright day

when will this darkness lift
when will you speak again
when will the dawn break through
when will I hear from you again

400 years to wait but I am still I'm waiting
counting the countless days till I see the chosen generation the generation that will break

the bitter silence
the bitter silence
o come messiah
o come messiah.
Track Name: Let All Mortal Flesh
Let all mortal flesh keep silence, and with fear and trembling stand
Ponder nothing earthly minded for with blessing in His hand
Christ our God to earth descendeth our full homage to demand

King of kings, yet born of Mary, as of old on earth He stood
Lord of lords, in human vesture in the body and the blood
He will give to all the faithful His own self for heavenly food

Rank on rank the host of heaven spreads its vanguard on the way
As the Light of light descendeth from the realms of endless day
That the powers of hell may vanish as the darkness clears away

At His feet the six winged seraph, Cherubim with sleepless eye
Veil their faces to the presence as with ceaseless voice they cry
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia, Lord Most High
Track Name: Angels From the Realms
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 field abiding,
Watching o’er your flocks by night,
God with us is now residing;
Yonder shines the infant light:

All creation, join in praising
God, the Father, Spirit, Son,
Evermore your voices raising
To th’eternal Three in One.
Track Name: Behold the Grace
Behold, the grace appears!
The promise is fulfilled;
Mary, the wondrous virgin, bears,
And Jesus is the Child.

The Lord, the highest God,
Calls Him His only Son;
He bids Him rule the lands abroad,
And gives Him David’s throne.

O’er Jacob shall He reign
With a peculiar sway;
The nations shall His grace obtain,
His kingdom ne’er decay.

To bring the glorious news
A heav’nly form appears;
He tells the shepherds of their joys,
And banishes their fears.

“Glory to God on high!
And heav’nly peace on earth;
Goodwill to men, to angels joy,
At the Redeemer’s birth!”

In worship so divine,
Let saints employ their tongues;
With the celestial hosts we join,
And loud repeat their songs:

“Glory to God on high!
And heav’nly peace on earth;
Goodwill to men, to angels joy,
At our Redeemer’s birth!”
Track Name: Deck the Halls
Deck the halls with boughs of holly, Fa la la la la la la la!
'Tis the season to be jolly, Fa la la la la la la la!
Don we now our gay apparel, Fa la la la la la la la!
Troll the ancient Yuletide carol, Fa la la la la la la la!

See the blazing yule before us, Fa la la la la la la la!
Strike the harp and join the chorus, Fa la la la la la la la!
Follow me in merry measure, Fa la la la la la la la!
While I tell of Yuletide treasure, Fa la la la la la la la!

Fast away the old year passes, Fa la la la la la la la!
Hail the new, ye lads and lasses, Fa la la la la la la la!
Sing we joyous all together! Fa la la la la la la la!
Heedless of the wind and weather, Fa la la la la la la la!
Track Name: Peace Around
Evie go on, ring your bells
There are bright sounds coming in swells
Heaven is here and so far from here
I can't hear the victory yell

I'm telling myself that a joy is found in a kingdom other than mine
I'm telling myself there is peace around for the 47,000th time

Hey! Get your mind up
Hey! Turn your eyes

People come on, sing it loud
For the soul coming up off the ground

Oh....


The cover of the clouds sends the shadows scattering
The puddles in the streets are beckoning our feet
There isn't a script for the this the film hasn't been made yet
But the distant December bells are calling us to rest
Track Name: Loud Night
I'll know it when I feel it but I don't feel it now
I'll know it when I see it but I can't make it out
I'll know it when I feel it but I don't feel it now
I'll know it when I see it but I can't make it out
Right now

I got distracted chasing lighting chasing lightning at night
But now I'm chasing you further in the pre-dawn light
I got distracted chasing lighting chasing lightning at night
But now I'm chasing you further in the pre-dawn light
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,
Sleep in heavenly peace.

Silent night, holy night,
shepherds quake at the sight,
Glories stream from heaven afar,
heavenly hosts sing Alleluia.
Christ the Saviour is born,
Christ the Saviour is born.

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.
Track Name: Merry Christmas
We wish you a Merry Christmas;
We wish you a Merry Christmas;
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Good tidings we bring to you and your kin;
Good tidings for Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Oh, bring us a figgy pudding;
Oh, bring us a figgy pudding;
Oh, bring us a figgy pudding and a cup of good cheer
We won't go until we get some;
We won't go until we get some;
We won't go until we get some, so bring some out here

We wish you a Merry Christmas;
We wish you a Merry Christmas;
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
