Campfire & Carols

Christmas Eve 2020

Thanks for joining us as we celebrate the birth of Jesus. Make yourself at home. Please share the fire pits and make room for everybody to have a change to warm themselves and maybe make a s’more or two. Also, please practice safe socializing as we play our part in abating the spread of COVID-19 in our community.

We’ll sing some carols together around 6-ish. Join in the song! Lyrics are provided below, in alphabetical order by song title. 

Verse 1

God how beautiful Your Holy Word
That formed the worlds in such goodness
O the shame that we would spurn it all
To turn and fall into darkness

Verse 2

God we’ll sing how through Your Son You turned
This loss and hurt into glory
How when scorned in death You raised Him up
His gain’s become the whole world’s story

Chorus 1

Let all things rise and bless Your name
All things made right and new again
O Lord our God Your goodness
Is free and boundless
Is reaching endless through it all

And on this road with every step we take
Your faithfulness is our portion
You’ve prepared a city bright and fair
Whose gates forever stay open

Verse 4

Son of God in You we’ve taken up
The way of love’s occupation
O the joy to share in Your reward
The stunning turn of new creation

Just as You promised God Your Son was
Raised up

Raised up

Heaven and earth forever one

Away in a manger no crib for a bed
The little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head
The stars in the sky looked down where He lay
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay

The cattle are lowing the Baby awakes
But little Lord Jesus no crying He makes
I love Thee Lord Jesus look down from the sky
And stay by my cradle ’til morning is nigh

Be near me Lord Jesus I ask Thee to stay
Close by me forever and love me I pray
Bless all the dear children in Thy tender care
And fit us for heaven to live with Thee there

There lying in a manger, the Savior of the Earth

Over the hills and ev’rywhere

Down in a lowly manger
The humble Christ was born
And God sent us salvation
That blessed Christmas morn

To save us all from Satan’s pow’r
When we were gone astray

This blessed Babe was born
And laid within a manger
Upon this blessed morn

Hark the herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn King

Christ by highest heav’n adored
Christ the everlasting Lord

Hail the heav’n-born Prince of Peace
Hail the Sun of Righteousness

Born to give them second birth
Hark the herald angels sing
Glory to the newborn King

Verse 1

It came upon the midnight clear
That glorious song of old
From angels bending near the earth
To touch their harps of gold
Peace on the earth good will to men
From heaven’s all gracious King
The world in solemn stillness lay
To hear the angels sing

Verse 2

Still thro’ the cloven skies they come
With peaceful wings unfurled
And still their heavenly music floats
O’er all the weary world
Above its sad and lowly plains
They bend on hovering wing
And ever o’er its Babel sounds
The blessed angels sing

Verse 3

And ye beneath life’s crushing load
Whose forms are bending low
Who toil along the climbing way
With painful steps and slow
Look now for glad and golden hours
Come swiftly on the wing
O rest beside the weary road
And hear the angels sing

Verse 4

For lo the days are hastening on
By prophet bards foretold
When with the ever-circling years
Comes round the age of gold
When peace shall over all the earth
Its ancient splendors fling
And the whole world give back the song
Which now the angels sing

Verse 5

Yet with the woes of sin and strife
The world has suffered long
Beneath the angel strain have rolled
Two thousand years of wrong
And man at war with man hears not
The love song which they bring
O hush the noise ye men of strife
And hear the angels sing

Joy to the world the Lord is come
Let earth receive her King
Let ev’ry heart prepare Him room
And heav’n and nature sing
And heav’n and nature sing

Let men their songs employ
While fields and floods
Rocks hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat repeat the sounding joy

Far as the curse is found
Far as the curse is found
Far as far as the curse is found

And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness
And wonders of His love
And wonders of His love
And wonders wonders of His love

Born this happy morning

O holy night the stars are brightly shining
It is the night of the dear Savior’s birth
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn

Chorus 1

Fall on your knees
O hear the angel voices
O night divine
O night when Christ was born
O night O holy night
O night divine

Verse 2

Led by the light of faith serenely beaming
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand
So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming
Here came the wise men from Orient land
The King of kings lay thus in lowly manger
In all our trials born to be our Friend

Chorus 2

He knows our need
To our weakness is no stranger
Behold your King
Before Him lowly bend
Behold your King
Before Him lowly bend

Verse 3

Truly He taught us to love one another
His law is love and His gospel is peace
Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother
And in His name all oppression shall cease
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we
Let all within us praise His holy name

Christ is the Lord
O praise His name forever
His power and glory
Evermore proclaim
His power and glory
Evermore proclaim
