Pop-up Carols


Hello! Here is the order of service for our pop-up carol service:

Introduction and Welcome 

            O come, all ye faithful,

             Joyful and triumphant,

            O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem

Come and behold him,

        Born the King of angels;

O come, let us adore him

O come, let us adore him,

O come, let us adore him, Christ the Lord!


God of God,

Light of Light,

Lo! he abhors not the virgin’s womb;

Very God,

Begotten, not created:

O come, let us adore him,

O come, let us adore him,

O come, let us adore him, Christ the Lord.


Sing, choirs of angels,

Sing in exultation,

Sing all ye citizens of heaven above:

“Glory to God

In the highest:”

O come, let us adore him,

O come, let us adore him,

O come, let us adore him, Christ the Lord

 

Reading Luke 2:8-20

 Carol    O little town of Bethlehem

How still we see thee lie!

Above thy deep and dreamless sleep

The silent stars go by.

                    Yet in thy dark streets shineth

               The everlasting Light:

The hopes and fears of all the years

     Are met in thee tonight.


O morning stars together

Proclaim the holy birth,

And praises sing to God the King

And peace to men on earth

For Christ is born of Mary:

And gathered all above,

While mortals sleep, the angels keep

Their watch of wondering love.

 

How silently, how silently,

The wondrous gift is given!

So God imparts to human hearts

The blessings of His heaven.

No ear may hear His coming,

But in this world of sin,

Where meek souls will receive him still

The dear Christ enters in.

 

O holy Child of Bethlehem

Descend to us, we pray;

Cast out our sin and enter in

Be born to us today.

We hear the Christmas angels

The great glad tidings tell;

O come to us, abide with us

Our Lord Emmanuel.

 

Address

 Hark! the herald-angels sing

glory to the new-born King,

peace on earth, and mercy mild,

God and sinners reconciled.

Joyful, all ye nations, rise,

join the triumph of the skies;

with the angelic host proclaim,

‘Christ is born in Bethlehem.’

Hark! the herald-angels sing

glory to the new-born King.


 Christ, by highest heaven adored,

Christ, the everlasting Lord,

late in time behold him come,

offspring of a virgin’s womb.

Veiled in flesh the Godhead see!

Hail, the incarnate Deity!

Pleased as man with man to dwell,

Jesus, our Emmanuel.

Hark! the herald-angels sing

glory to the new-born King.


Hail, the heaven-born Prince of peace!

Hail, the sun of righteousness!

Light and life to all he brings,

risen with healing in his wings.

Mild he lays his glory by,

born that man no more may die,

born to raise the sons of earth,

Hark! the herald-angels sing

glory to the new-born King.
