Track Name: Joshua Smith - Snow
Frost on the houses, Lights on the trees
Wool winter sweaters, cold winter breeze
I won't be happy, this much I know
Till everythings covered in snow

Lets take a sleigh ride, mittens and boots
Jackets zipped up to our noses and tuques
Oh Can I kiss you?, warm up your toes?
When everythings covered with snow

Cracklin fire socks on my feet
Stockings all hangin so tidy n neat
Dance with me darlin near the mistletoe
Cause baby it's starting to snow

Snowflakes n snowdays n snowmen with hats
Snowballs n snow forts n snow shoes for tracks
Snow storms with snowplows make snowbanks for free!!
Snow kisses stolen near snow covered trees

Choirs n' candles n' dancing n' food
White Christmas playin to set the mood
All this excitement, is starting to grow
Cause everything covered with snow
Track Name: Nico Boesten - We Three Kings
We three kings of Orient are
Bearing gifts we traverse afar.
Field and fountain, moor and mountain
Following yonder star.

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

CHORUS
O - star of wonder, star of night
Star with royal beauty bright
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to thy perfect Light.

Frankincense to offer have I,
Incense owns a Day-a-tea nigh.
Prayer and praising all men raising,
Worship Him, God on high.

Myrrh is mine: Its bitter perfume,
Breathes a life of gathering gloom.
Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding dying,
Sealed in the stone-cold tomb.

Glorious now behold Him arise,
King and God and Sacrifice.
Alleluia, Alleluia - Sounds through the earth and skies.
Track Name: Corey Doak - Home for Christmas
LYRICS:
The frost outside my window crows
With a dull and lifeless pose
That seems to creep into my clothes

The sun comes shining through the grey
Winter seems to run away
But those moments never stay

I've been dreaming of coming home for Christmas
'Cause this city seems so cold to me
And you seem so far away
On this cold and cloudy day
And I could use the company

The streets are full of Christmas cheer
But how I wish I had you here
To see your smile and have you near

'Cause I've been frozen like a lake
I've been thinner than a rake
So keep me warm for goodness sake

I've been dreaming of coming home for Christmas
'Cause this city seems so cold to me
And you seem so far away
On this cold and cloudy day
And I could use the company

I've heard the stories wise men tell
How the grace of heaven fell
To break the icy grip of hell

There was springtime in His eyes
He heard the weak and lonely cries
And all he touched was raised to life

I've been dreaming of coming home for Christmas
'Cause this city seems so cold to me
Well, you left your father's side
For the world for which you died

To melt the frost and part the sea
You've got a mansion made for me
Well, I could use the company
Track Name: Norm Strauss - Little Drummer Boy
LRYICS:
Come, they told me (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum)
A newborn king to see (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum)
Our finest gifts we bring (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum)
To lay before the king (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum) [x3]
So, to honor Him (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum)
When we come

Little baby (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum)
I am a poor boy too (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum)
I have no gifts to bring (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum)
That's fit to give a king (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum) [x3]
Shall I play for you (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum)
On my drum?

Mary nodded (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum)
The ox and lamb kept time (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum)
I played my drum for Him (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum)
I played my best for Him (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum) [x3]
Then, He smiled at me (pa-rum-pa-pum-pum)
Me and my drum
Track Name: Raquel Warchol - Merry Merry Christmas
LYRICS:

| E | E | B | B | C#m | C#m | A | A | x2
Merry merry Christmas
I hear the bells they're ringing you home
So I'm waiting by the window watching as it snows
It's a merry merry Christmas
You say you're only one sleigh ride away
From making hot chocolate and hanging our stockings above the fire place
Chorus:
| E | E | B | B | C#m | C#m | A | A | x2
I wish Christmas would last all year long
And oh if Christmas was a never-ending song
Then forever you'd be my valentine
Cause if I'm with you and you're with me
Then Christmas is all it was ever meant to be
Verse 2:
| E | E | B | B | C#m | C#m | A | A | x2
Merry merry Christmas
You're the gift I dream about all year
Santa must of heard me cause tomorrow you'll be here
It's a merry merry Christmas
You know it won't be that long
Till we're dancing around the pine tree singing our favourite songs
Chorus
Bridge:
| B | B | C#m | C#m | A | A | B | B B# |
My hope comes with the season
That there will finally be a reason
You won't be so far from me
| C#m | C#m | A | A | E | E | B B |
And all the Christmas lights they glow
Every time you let me know
Wherever I am is your home
Instrumental
| F# | F# | C# | C# | D#m | D#m | B | B |
Chorus:
| F# | F# | C# | C# | D#m | D#m | B | B | x2
I wish Christmas would last all year long
And oh if Christmas was a never-ending song
Then forever you'd be my valentine
Cause if I'm with you and you're with me
Then Christmas is all it was ever meant to be
Track Name: Brent Tyler - This Family
LRYICS:
Advent calendars and time
Snowy village lit inviting white light
Tell the kids to go outside
Light a fire in this brush pile so high

This family
It warms my heart to a place that I call home
This family
Will never fall apart forever bonded by our love
Our love, our love…

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la

Brother, Sister let me hear
Your resolutions for this coming new year
Father, Mother do not fear
We’re all together in this living room here

This family
It warms my heart to a place that I call home
This family
Will never fall apart forever bonded by our love
Our love, our love…

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la

When you’re tired and the dark is heavy
We are the people in your life
The light in your life
Track Name: Ryan Donn - Merry Christmas
LYRICS:
White snow, hearts glow,
on this Christmas season.
Mistle toe, you sure know,
what you‘ve been missing
Friends around, love found,
choirs gently singing

Merry Christmas and a happy new year

Light up that tree, unwind you’ll see,
Yule tide fire crackle
Grateful heart, its where it starts,
Smile while angels bringing
Can you forgive; thankfully live,
for all you’ve been given

Merry Christmas and a happy new year
Merry Christmas and a happy new year
Track Name: Michaela Burger - A Silent Night
LRYICS:
Snow falls down
without a sound
On this silent night
is there peace to be found?

Are the diamonds in the sky
like the diamonds in Your eyes?
How they beckon to me!
iIm on the ground but i long to fly

I need to see You, I need to hear You
I need You to save me from myself
I need to see You, I need to hear You
I need you to save me from myself

Then He spoke to me
He said "walk with me.
Stop trying so hard
Just take my hand and walk with Me..

...My child...
I see you, and I hear you
I want you to put your trust in Me
I see you and I hear you
Just put your trust in Me"

so I'll say more of you Jesus, and less of me

Snow falls down
without a sound
On this silent night
what a peace I've found
