Song Lyrics for the Hanging of the Greens Service, November 28th, 2021


Candles Glowing Verse 1

Candles glowing, promise showing the great hope that calms our fear. Darkness scatters, worry shatters,

Christ will always draw us near.

Calms our sighing, hears out crying,

helps our trying, love undying;

Christ will always draw us near!

Christ will always draw us near!


The Holly & the Ivy

The holly and the ivy,

When they are both full grown,

Of all the trees that are in the wood,

The holly bears the crown.


CHORUS

The rising of the sun

And the running of the deer,

The playing of the merry organ,

Sweet singing in the choir.


The holly bears a blossom

As white as lily flow’r.

And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ

To be our sweet Savior.


CHORUS


The holly bears a berry

As red as any blood,

And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ

To do poor sinners good.


CHORUS


Let There Be Peace on Earth

Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me;

Let there be peace on earth, the peace that was meant to be.

With God as our Father, brothers all are we.

Let me walk with my brother in perfect harmony.


Let peace begin with me, let this be the moment now.

With every step I take, let this be my solemn vow:

To take each moment, and live each moment in peace eternally! Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me.


O Christmas Tree (O Tannenbaum)

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, thy leaves are so unchanging.

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, thy leaves are so unchanging.

Not only green when summer’s here, but also when ‘tis cold and drear.

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, thy leaves are so unchanging.

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, you fill all hearts with gaiety.

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, you fill all hearts with gaiety.

On Christmas Day you stand so tall, affording joy to one and all.

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, you fill all hearts with gaiety.
