Track Name: Auld Lang Syne
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and old lang syne?

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

We two have run about the slopes,
and picked the daisies fine;
But we’ve wandered many a weary foot,
since auld lang syne.

We two have paddled in the stream,
from morning sun till dine;
But seas between us broad have roared
since auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

And theres a hand my trusty friend!
And give us a hand o thine!
And well take a right good-will draught,
for auld lang syne.

For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we'll take a cup of kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.
Track Name: Jeanette, Isabella
Bring a torch, Jeanette, Isabella
Bring a torch, come swiftly and run
A child is born, tell the folk of the village
He is sleeping in his cradle
Ah, ah, beautiful is the mother
Ah, ah, beautiful is her son

It is wrong when the child is sleeping,
It is wrong to talk so loud?
Silence, all as you gather around,
Wake him not for he is dreaming
Hush! Hush! see how fast he slumbers;
Hush! Hush! see how fast he sleeps!

Hasten now good folk of the village
Hasten now, the moment has come
You will find Him asleep in the manger
Quietly come, and whisper softly
Hush, hush, peacefully now He slumbers
Hush, hush, peacefully now He ….
Hush, hush, peacefully now He slumbers
Hush, hush, peacefully now He ….
Hush, hush, peacefully now He slumbers
Hush, hush, peacefully now He sleeps
Track Name: I Heard the Bells
I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace of earth, good will to men.

I thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along th'unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good will to men.

And in despair I bowed my head:
"There is no peace on earth," I said,
"For hate is strong, and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good will to men."

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
"God is not dead, nor does she sleep;
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail,
With peace on earth, good will to men."

Till, ringing, singing on its way,
The world revolved from night to day
A voice, a chime, a chant sublime,
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
Track Name: 'Tis the Season
Deck the halls with boughs of holly,
'Tis the season to be jolly,
Don we now our gay apparel
Fa la la la la

See the blazing yule before us,
Strike the harp and join the chorus.
Follow me in merry measure
Fa la la la la

Fast away the old year passes,
Hail the new, ye lads and lasses!
Sing we joyous all together
Fa la la la la
