Track Name: What Night Is This?
What Night Is This?

What night is this so long and drear
When all good folk would gather near
To light their pyres, the Solstice fires
And tend the blaze till morning.

All, all of nature sing
As the days grow long, so comes the Spring.
All hail the Lord, our Sun,
The babe of our blessed Lady.


So build the fires strong and high
The wind will be His lullaby
Returning king, of thee we sing
Watching the Yule log burning.

All, all of nature sing
As the days grow long, so comes the Spring.
All hail the Lord, our Sun,
The babe of our blessed Lady.


Come join me by the Yuletide flame
To call our Lord by His holy name.
By fire bright, invoke His light
Keeping watch till dawning

All, all of nature sing
As the days grow long, so comes the Spring.
All hail the Lord, our Sun,
The babe of our blessed Lady.
Track Name: God Rest You Merry Gentlemen
GOD REST YOU MERRY GENTLEMEN

God rest you merry gentlemen
Let nothing you dismay
Remember that the sun, our lord
Will rise this solstice day
To bring with him a brighter world
Oh hear the wise one say

Good tidings of comfort and joy
Comfort and joy
Good tidings of comfort and joy

Now to the Lord sing praises
All you within this place
And with true love and brotherhood
Each other now embrace
This holy time of Yuletide
All others doth deface.

Good tidings of comfort and joy
Comfort and joy
Good tidings of comfort and joy

We bless the Sun, our Lord on high
And send Him long to reign,
And many a merry Yuletide
May live to see again;
Among your friends and kindred
Peace among all men.

Good tidings of comfort and joy
Comfort and joy
Good tidings of comfort and joy
Track Name: Silent Night
Silent night. Holy night..
All is calm. All is bright.
As we wait for the first morning light
To reveal the dawn, snowy white.
Hail the new morning sun.
Hail the new morning sun.

Silent night. Holy night.
Sea of stars. What a sight.
Planet of wonder. Peace on Earth.
Fills our hearts with reverence and mirth.
Hail the new morning sun.
Hail the new morning sun.

Silent night. Holy night.
Rising sun. Feel His might.
Night long vigil. True delight.
Brings us out on this freezing night.
Hail the new morning sun.
Hail the new morning sun.
Track Name: Midnight Clear
MIDNIGHT CLEAR

It came upon a midnight clear,
That glorious song of old.
When good folk kneeling on the earth invoked His radiant gold.
Peace on the earth, good will to men,
They opened their hearts to sing.
The world in solemn stillness lay
To greet our blessed king.

O ye beneath life’s crushing load,
Whose forms are bending low,
Who toil along the climbing way
With painful steps and slow
Look now, for glad and golden hours
Take heart! Our Lord will come.
O rest beside the Yuletide fire
And greet the morning sun.

For lo! The days are hast’ning on,
By Wise ones seen of old,
When with the ever circling years,
Shall come the time foretold.
When our good Lord returns once more
To send the dark away.
The whole world echoing back His love
Upon this Solstice day.
