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.

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

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.

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
