With those holiday greetings
And great happy meetings
When friends come to call
It抯 the hap-happiest season of all

There抣l be parties for hosting
Marshmallows for roasting
And caroling out in the snow
There抣l be scary ghost stories
And tales of the glories
Of Christmases long, long ago

It抯 the most wonderful time of the year
There抣l be much mistletoe-ing
And hearts will be glowing
When loved ones are near
It抯 the most wonderful time of the year

The weather outside is frightful
But the fire is so delightful
And since we've no place to go
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

Well, it doesn't show signs of stopping
But we've got some corn for popping
And the lights are turned way down low
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

When we finally kiss goodnight
How I hate going out in the storm
But as long as you hold me tight
Oh, all the way home I'll be warm

The fire is slowly dying
But my dear we've still goodbye-ing
And as long as you love me so
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow
Let it snow, let it snow

When we finally kiss goodnight
How I hate going out in the storm
But as long as you hold me tight
Oh, all the way home I'll be warm

Oh, the fire is slowly dying
But my dear we've still goodbye-ing
And as long as you love me so
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow
Let it snow, let it snow

assistant mixer: Duke Duczer
composer: Mel Tormé
lyricist: Robert Wells
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like Eskimos

Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe
Help to make the season bright
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
Will find it hard to sleep tonight

They know that Santa's on his way
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
And every mother's child is gonna spy
To see if reindeer really know how to fly

And so I'm offering you a simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety-two
Though it's been said many times many ways
Merry Christmas to you

composer: Irving Berlin
I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten
And children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
"May your days be merry and bright,
And may all your Christmas's be white."

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten
And children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
"May your days be merry and bright,
And may all your Christmas's be white."

writer: Randy Handley, Cam King
Tell the children of Abraham
There's a star over Bethlehem
And the light in the manger
Come a Christmas morn
When baby Jesus is born

Angel came to Mary
Said, I'm tellin' you
The light of this world
Is shinin' inside of you
His sweet forgiveness
Gonna set men free
The lame will walk
And the blind will see

Tell the children of Abraham
There's a star over Bethlehem
And the light in the manger
Come a Christmas morn
When baby Jesus is born

Wise men following a holy light
Shepherds heard singing
In the midnight sky
And they all came a runnin'
Through the stable door
The meek and the mighty
The rich and the poor

Tell the children of Abraham
There's a star over Bethlehem
And the light in the manger
Come a Christmas morn
When baby Jesus is born
Baby Jesus is born

God rest ye merry gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
Remember Christ our savior
Was born on Christmas day
To save us all from Satan's power
When we were gone astray
Oh tidings of comfort and joy

From God our heavenly father
The blessed angel came
And unto certain shepherds
Brought tidings of the same
How that in Bethlehem was born
The Son of God by name
Oh tidings of comfort and joy
Oh tidings of comfort and joy

Fear not said the angel
Let nothing you alright
This day is born a savior
Of the pure virgin bright
To free all those who trust in him
From Satan's power and might
Oh tidings of comfort and joy

And when they came to Bethlehem
Where our dear savior lay
They found him in the manger
Where oxen feed on hay
His mother Mary knelled down
And to the Lord did pray
Oh tidings of comfort and joy
Oh tidings of comfort and joy

God rest ye merry gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
Remember Christ our savior
Was born on Christmas day

composer: Felix Bernard
lyricist: Richard B. Smith
A heaven of diamonds
Shine down through the night
Two hearts are thrilling
In spite of the chilling weather . . .

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening
In the lane, snow is glistening
A beautiful sight, we抮e happy tonight
Walking in a winter wonderland

Gone away is the bluebird
Here to stay is a new bird
He sings a love song, as we go along
Walking in a winter wonderland

In the meadow we can build a snowman
And pretend that he is Parson Brown
He抣l say, are you married, we抣l say, no man
But you can do the job while you抮e in town

Later on we抣l conspire
As we dream by the fire
To face unafraid the plans that we made
Walking in a winter wonderland

Just hear those sleigh bells jingling
Ring-ting-tingling too
Come on, it's lovely weather
For a sleigh ride together with you
Outside the snow is falling
And friends are calling yoo-hoo
Come on, it's lovely weather
For a sleigh ride together with you

Our cheeks are nice and rosy
And comfy cozy are we
We're snuggling close together
Like two birds of a feather should be
Let's take the road before us
And sing a chorus or two
Come on, it's lovely weather
For a sleigh ride together with you

There's a birthday party
At the house of farmer Gray
It'll be the perfect ending
To the perfect day
We'll be singing the songs
We love to sing
Without a single stop
At the fireplace where
We'll watch the chestnuts pop

There's a happy feeling
Nothing in the world can buy
When they pass around the coffee
And the pumpkin pie
It'll nearly be like a picture print
By Currier and Ives
These wonderful things are the things
We remember all through our lives

If the fates allow
So hang a shining star upon the highest bough
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now

Have yourself a merry little Christmas

From now on, our troubles will be out of sight
Have yourself a merry little Christmas

Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more
Through the years we all will be together

Oh, there's no place like home for the holidays
'Cause no matter how far away your roam
If you long for the sunshine and a friendly gaze
For the holidays you can't beat home sweet home

I met a man who lived in Tennessee
And he was looking for
Pennsylvania and some homemade pumpkin pie
Now in Pennsylvania folks are traveling
Down to Dixie's sunny shore
The Atlantic to Pacific
Oh, the season is terrific
Oh, there's no place like home for the holidays
For the holidays you can't beat home sweet home

City sidewalks,
Busy sidewalks
Dressed in holiday style
In the air there's a
Feeling like Christmas
Children laughing,
People passing
Meeting smile after smile
And on every
Street corner you hear
Silver bells,
Silver bells
It's Christmas time in the city
Ring-a-ling,
Hear them ring
Soon it will be Christmas day

Strings of street lights
Even stop lights
Blink a bright red and green
As the shoppers rush home
With their treasures
Hear the snow crunch
See the kids bunch
This is Santa's big scene
And above all the
Bustle you hear

Silver bells, silver bells
It's Christmas time in the city
Ring-a-ling, hear them ring
Soon it will be Christmas day

Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and far away
Go tell it on the mountain

The shepherds all were watching
Over their sheep at night
When a guiding star shone from heaven
And the followed that holy light

Got tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born
They found a lovely manger
Where the humble Christ was born
And God sent out salvation
On that blessed Christmas morn

Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born

He brought with Him forgiveness
He live to show us the way
He came to redeem all creation
And to wash all our sins away

Go tell it on the mountain
Over the hills and everywhere
Go tell it on the mountain
That Jesus Christ is born

editor: Eric Conn and Carlos Grier
assistant mixer: Duke Duczer
composer: Lewis Henry Redner
lyricist: Phillips Brooks
O little town of Bethlehem
How still we see thee lie
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by

Yet in they dark streets shineth
The everlasting light
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight

O holy child of Bethlehem
Descend to us we pray
Cast out our sins and enter in
Be born to us today

O morning starts together
Proclaim thy holy birth
And praises sing to God the king
And peace to men on earth

O hear thy sacred angels
As faith holds wide the door
Then darkness wakes, the glory breaks
As Christmas comes once more
