AH, BLEAK AND CHILL THE WINTRY WIND
 
1.    Ah, Bleak and chill the wintry wind, but colder far be h
Who hath no warmth of love to share with Christ the babe that Mary bare,
On His Nativity, On His Nativity.

2.    Dark, dark the night when Christ was born, But deeper shadows be
Within the heart that hath no joy with Mary and her heav'nly boy,
On His Nativity, On His Nativity.

3.    Peace be to them that and right good cheer Who carol merrily
And hie them forth when church bells ring, to kneel before their newborn Kin,
On His Nativity, On His Nativity.

 
CAROLING, CAROLING
 
1.    Caroling, caroling, now we go:  Christmas bells are ringing!
 Caroling, caroling thru the snow, Christmas bells are ringing!
Joyous voices sweet and clear, sing the sad of heart to cheer.
Ding, dong, ding, dong, Christmas bells are ringing!
2.    Caroling, caroling, thru the town;  Christmas bells are ringing!
Caroling, caroling up and down;  Christmas bells are ringing!
Mark ye well the songs we sing, Gladsome tidings now we bring.
Ding, dong, ding, dong, Christmas bells are ringing!

3.    Caroling, caroling near and far;  Christmas bells are ringing!
Following, following yonder star;  Christmas bells are ringing!
Sing we all this happy morn, lo the Kind of Heav'n is born!
Ding, dong, ding, dong, Christmas bells are ringing. 
 

THE SELFISH CAROL

1.    Look underneath the Christmas tree, See all the pretty, pretty, pretty things for me!
There's red and green and gold and blue,  I want them all there's not a thing for you!
All for me!  All for me!  This is all the beauty of the Christmas tree!

2.   If I could only have my way, I'd never, never, never give a thing away.
I'd buy just presents for myself, and put them all away upon a closet shelf!
All for me!  All for me!  This is all the beauty of the Christmas tree!

3.   At Christmas time you'll not find me all giddy with a silly generosity.
I'll grab my stuff and then you'll see me stowing it away with high velocity!
All for me!  All for me!  This is all the beauty of the Christmas tree!
