Here are the words for the songs in our Christmas presentation.

They Came to a Christmas Party

Long time ago and miles away

On a night so clear

Shepherds came to see a child

At the end of a long hard year

Chorus:

They came to a Christmas party

They came to dance and sing

They came to see the wonder of

The newborn heavenly King

Along the lonely winding road

Three Kings came to call,

Trav’lling from a distant land

Just to find a lowly stall

Chorus: They came to a Christmas Party…

Now some they came to tell their name

In Bethlehem that day,

Some came seeking peace on earth

In the place where a baby lay

Chorus: (x2) They came to a Christmas party…

EVERYONE’S ASLEEP

Everyone’s asleep in the night so deep

Everyone’s asleep tonight

Children in their beds rest their weary heads

Everyone’s asleep tonight

Donkey’s in the straw, Can you hear him snore?

Everyones asleep tonight

Not a sound is heard from a mouse or bird

Everyone’s asleep tonight

But coming down the road

The long and silent road

Strangers come to Bethlehem

They’ve travelled all the day

A long and tiring way

Who will find a place for them?

Lights are all turned down in the darkened town

Everyone’s asleep tonight

Theres no room anywhere, not a bed to spare

Everyones asleep tonight

Everyone’s asleep, everyones asleep

Everyone’s asleep tonight  sshhhhhhh

Something Happened to the Light

Over the hills long time ago,

Shepherds and their sheep lay low

Midnight came a light did shine

Bright as the light from a neon sign

Chorus:

Something happened to the light

Should be dark but it turned out bright

Never seen a stranger sight

Looks like day….but it should be night

Angels came and said to them

“You gotta go to Bethlehem!”

They flew up into the sky

Shepherds could not believe their eyes!

Chorus: Something happened to ….

Shepherds travelled high and low

Wond’ring where the light would go

Travelled up and travelled down

Til they came to a little town

Chorus: Something happened…

Still their journey led them on

All the time that light it shone

Over an inn it seemed to hang

At the door all the shepherds sang

Final Chorus:

Something happened to the light

should be dark but it turned out bright

Never seen a stranger sight

Looks like day…but it should be night X2 

Dont know how it shines so bright

Tell the truth it gave me a fright

Looks like day….but it should be night

Three Kings from the East

Three Kings from the East

Sat at a late night feast

Saw a star and wondered why

It shone and never ceased

Chorus:

A long, long way to go

Through the valleys high and low

And a biting wind did blow

Such a long, long way to go

They left their wine and bread

Followed the star instead

Rode their camels through the night

‘Til they came to a cattle shed

Chorus: A long, long way to go….

They saw the star shine down

Over Bethlehem town

On a manger filled with straw

And cattle all around

Chorus: A long, long way to go

They stood before an inn

To knock they did begin

Knocked three times…

And three times more…

Just to waken those within

Chorus: A long, long way to go x1

Shine Away

Chorus:

Let it shine ____, Let it shine ____,

Let it shine, let it shine, ooh let it shine,

Let it shine, let it shine, ooh let it shine.

There’s a bright light shining in the world tonight

All your fears will vanish in the morning light,

There’s a new horizon, there’s a brand new day,

A brighter future and it’s on the way

May all the love in the world,

Come shining through,

All the dark clouds disappear from view,

Let the light in your heart shine on,

All you do and say,

Let it shine, ooh, shine away

Chorus x 1

There’s a new beginning in the world tonight,

There’s a dawn breaking and the future’s bright,

May we each find blessing now its Christmas time,

Through all our lives may the good light shine

May all the love (twice)

…Shine away, shine away
