Track Name: O Come Emmanuel
O come, O come, Emmanuel,
and ransom captive Israel,
that mourns in lonely exile here
until the Son of God appear.

O come, thou Dayspring, come and cheer
our spirits by thine advent here;
disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
and death's dark shadows put to flight.

Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, Desire of nations, bind
in one the hearts of all mankind;
bid thou our sad divisions cease,
and be thyself our King of Peace.

Rejoice! Rejoice!
Emmanuel shall come to thee, O Israel.
Track Name: We Three Kings
We three kings of Orient are
Bearing gifts we traverse afar
Field and fountain, moor and mountain
Following yonder star.

Star of wonder, star of night
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading, still proceeding
Guide us to Thy perfect light.

Born a babe on Bethlehem's plain
Gold we bring to crown Him again
King forever, ceasing never
Over us all to reign.

Glorious now behold Him arise
King and God and Sacrifice
Earth to heaven replies
Track Name: Starlight
I get caught believing
in fairy tales and sailor moons
but when snow falls down and not fairy dust
and dark skies rise at the sign of dusk
I can’t help but make a wish

I wish for starlight, star bright shine on me
Starlight shine bright down on me
Shine on me

I get caught believing
that all is warm and all is bright
but when plans fall down I’m still looking up
and stars still shine in the sky above
I can’t help but make a wish

Speak a revelation
Take a chance on who you are
light the nations
You burn like a star
No reservations
throw them to the wind
Hold on to expectations

I wish for starlight, star bright to shine on me
Starlight, shine bright this winter’s eve
I wish for starlight, shine bright down on me

Light bursts from every star
in the ice sculpture sky
lift up your head
you were meant to shine
Track Name: Bring a Torch
Bring a torch, Jeanette, Isabelle
Bring a torch, to the stable run
It is Jesus good folk of the village
Christ is born and Mary's calling
Ah! Ah! beautiful is the Mother
Ah! Ah! beautiful is her child

Un flambeau, Jeanette, Isabelle
Un flambeau! Courons au berceau
C'est Jésus, gens du hameau
Le Christ est né; Marie appelle
Ah! Ah! Ah! Que la Mère est belle
Ah! Ah! Ah! Que l'Enfant est beau

Softly now come into the stable
Softly for a moment come
Look and see how lovely is Jesus
Look at him there, His cheeks are rosy
Hush! Hush! see how the Child is sleeping
Hush! Hush! see how he smiles in dreams.
