Christmas Carol Lyrics,
Sheet Music, and Guitar Tabs

Christmas carol lyrics celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

Although we do not know when Jesus's birth happened, the medieval church fastened upon a pagan holiday in an attempt to transform the hearts of communities worshiping "the old gods", in the old ways.

Angels We Have Heard on High Lyrics & Music

Children love singing the "Glo-o-o-ria" part of this pretty Christmas carol.  

Visit this page to find lead sheets in several keys, a PDF of the lyrics, piano and guitar versions.


Coventry Carol sheet music for Christmas

Coventry Carol sheet music, also known as Lully, Lullay

This is the story of King Herod's rage descending upon the baby boys of Bethlehem.

It is a sad story, like many in the Bible, but it is a gentle introduction to this part of Jesus' story.

Not originally considered a part of the Christmas story, this song has become so.

Coventry Carol is also known as "Lully, Lullay" and "Lulla, Lullay." 


Gabriel's Message Lyrics and Sheet Music

This is the story of the angel Gabriel appearing to the young woman Mary, who would become the mother of the Messiah.

Isaiah 7:14: Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.



Bible Christmas story

Lo, I Bring You Tidings, a Bible Christmas story

This song tells the story of the shepherds who heard the angel's message of Jesus's birth.

The account is told with words directly from scripture, and ends with Mary's thoughts:

"Here asleep the Song of God, and the Son of man... Heav'n and earth within him stand - Alleluia!"


Truly, it is difficult to untangle a Christian message from current Christmas-time festivities, gift-giving, and community goings-on, but a thin thread can often still be seen woven through the densest materialistic cloth.

God is the inventor of beauty and joy!  Though an Enemy tries to twist all things away from their true purpose and bend "Good" into "Not Good", God is stronger.

"God's Grandeur" by Gerard Manley Hopkins captures this deep truth:

The world is charged with the grandeur of God.

    It will flame out, like shining from shook foil;

    It gathers to a greatness, like the ooze of oil

Crushed. Why do men then now not reck his rod?

Generations have trod, have trod, have trod;

    And all is seared with trade; bleared, smeared with toil;

    And wears man's smudge and shares man's smell: the soil

Is bare now, nor can foot feel, being shod.

And for all this, nature is never spent;

    There lives the dearest freshness deep down things;

And though the last lights off the black West went

    Oh, morning, at the brown brink eastward, springs —

Because the Holy Ghost over the bent

    World broods with warm breast and with ah! bright wings.
