Do You Hear What I Hear?
Letra: Gloria Shayne e Noel Regney
Arranjo (2013): Dan Needham
Leitura Bíblica: Logan Needham

Said the night wind to the little lamb
Do you see what I see
Way up in the sky little lamb
Do you see what I see
A star, a star
Dancing in the night
With a tail as big as a kite
With a tail as big as a kite

Said the little lamb to the shepard boy
Do you hear what I hear
Ringing through the sky shepard boy
Do you hear what I hear
A song, a song
High above the tree
With a voice as big as the sea
With a voice as big as the sea

Said the shepard boy to the mighty king
Do you know what I know
In your palace wall mighty king
Do you know what I know
A child, a child
Shivers in the cold
Let us bring him silver and gold
Let us bring him silver and gold

Said the king to the people everywhere
Listen to what I say
Pray for peace people everywhere
Listen to what I say
The child, the child
Sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light
He will bring us goodness and light

The child, the child
Sleeping in the night
He will bring us goodness and light

Arranjo (2013): Dan Needham

Come they told me, pa rum pa pum pum
Our 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,
Rum pa pum pum, rum pa pum pum,
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 gift to bring, pa rum pa pum pum
To lay before the King, pa rum pa pum pum,
Rum pa pum pum, rum pa pum pum,
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
Rum pa pum pum, rum pa pum pum
Then He smiled at me, pa rum pa pum pum
Me and my drum…
Me and my drum…
Me and my drum…
Me and my drum…
Me and my drum….

 

O’ Holy Night
Letra: Adolphe Adam e John Dwight (1847)
Arranjo (2013): Dan Needham
Backing Vocals: John Elefante

O holy night
The stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear Saviour’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
Fall on your knees
Oh, hear the angel voices

O night divine
Oh, the night when Christ was born
O night divine
Oh, night
Oh night divine

Truly he taught us to love one another
His law is love and his gospel is peace
Chains he shall break, for the slave is our brother
And in his name all oppression shall cease
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we
With all within hearts we praise His holy name
Christ is the Lord
Then ever, ever praise we

Is power and glory
Ever more, ever more proclaim

Is power and glory
Every more, every more proclaim

 

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
Letra: Autor Desconhecido
Publicado por: William B. Sandys (1833)
Arranjo (2013): Dan Needham

God rest ye merry, gentlemen,
Let nothing you dismay
Remember Christ our Saviour
Was born on Christmas Day
To save us all from Satan’s power
When we were gone astray.
O tidings of comfort and joy,
comfort and joy;
O tidings of comfort and joy!

From God our Heavenly Father
A blessed angel came
And unto certain shepherds
Brought tidings of the same
How in that Bethlehem was born
The son of God by name
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy;
O tidings of comfort and joy!
Comfort and joy;

To the Lord sing praises,
God rest ye merry, gentlemen,
God rest ye merry, gentlemen,
Remember Christ our Saviour,
Remember Christ our Saviour.

Now to the Lord sing praises
All you within this place
And with true love and brotherhood
Each other now embrace
This holy tide of Christmas
All others doth deface
O tidings of comfort and joy,
Comfort and joy;
O tidings of comfort and joy!
Comfort and joy;

To the Lord sing praises
Sing Praises
Comfort and joy.

His Name is Jesus

That Spirit of Christmas
Letra: M. John, J. Webster, P. Davison

Arranjo (2013): Dan Needham
Backing Vocals: Kari Needham

Christmas is the time of year
For being with the one’s we love
Sharing so much joy and cheer
What a wonderful feelin
Watching the one’s we love
Having so much fun

I was sittin by the fire side
Taking a walk through the snow
Listening to a children’s choir
Singing songs about Jesus
The blessed way that he came to us

Why can’t it remain
All through the year
Each day the same
Heyeah, that’s what I wanna hear
Heh heh
It’s truly amazin
That spirit of Christmas

All the kin folk gather round
The lovely Christmas tree
Hearts are glowing full of joy
Sense the gifts that we’re giving
And the love that we’re living
Why can’t it remain
Ohhh all through the year
Each day the same
Ohhh, that’s what I wanna hear
I’ll tell ya
It’s truly amazin
That spirit of Christmas
Yeah

Yeah
It’s truly amazin
That spirit of Christmas

Yeah
It’s truly amazin
That spirit of Christmas
That spirit of Christmas

 

We Three Kings
Letra: John Henry Hopkins Jr. (1857)

Arranjo (2013): Dan Needham

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 for ever, ceasing never
Over us all to reign.

Oh! Oh!
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 Deity night
Prayer and praising, all men raising,
Worship Him, God on high.

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

Glorious now behold Him arise,
King and God and Sacrifice!
Al-le-lu-ia, al-le-lu-ia,
Sounds to the earth and sky
Sounds to the earth and sky

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

Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to thy perfect light.

Your perfect light
Ohhh
Star of wonder

 

What Christmas Needs To Be
Letra: John Schlitt, Dan Needham e George Cocchini
Backing Vocals: Scott Faircloff

Whatever happened to this place I used to know
So Well
I remember simpler times where did they go?
Farewell
Didn’t matter ‘bout the “how we make its”
We were happy just to celebrate it

(chorus)
It’s Christmas now
The Gift of Heaven given
Love can be found
In every heart that hears it
A Baby crowned
The hope of our salvation He
Is what Christmas needs to be

What would Christmas be without the things
We dread
What would happen if we choose to give ourselves
Instead
It’s not about the gift we’re bringing
It’s more about the song we’re singing

(bridge)
With just one life all things were changed
A Child is born to light the way

Doesn’t matter ‘bout the “how we make its”
Just remember why we celebrate it

 

What Child Is This?
Letra:  William C. Dix (1865)

Arranjo (2013): Dan Needham

What child is this who, laid to rest,
On Mary’s lap is sleeping?
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet,
While shepherds watch are keeping?

This, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing;
Haste, haste to bring him laud,
The babe, the son of Mary.

Why lies he in such mean estate
Where ox and ass are feeding?
Good Christians, fear, for sinners here
The silent Word is pleading.

This, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing;
Haste, haste to bring him laud,
The babe, the son of Mary.

Oh! the son of Mary
Sheppers watch, angels sing

So bring him incense, gold, and myrrh,
Come, peasant, king, to own him;
The King of kings salvation brings,
Let loving hearts enthrone him.

This, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing;
Haste, haste to bring him laud,
The babe, the son of Mary.

The babe, the son of Mary.
The babe, the son of Mary.
