The Little Drummer Boy

Come, they told me, 

Pa rum pum pum pum

A new born King to see;

Pa rum pum pum pum

Our finest gifts we bring

Pa rum pum pum pum

To lay before the King!

Pa rum pum pum pum,

rum pum pum pum,

rum pum pum pum

So to honor Him

Pa rum pum pum pum

When we come.

Mary nodded;

Pa rum pum pum pum

The ox and lamb kept time;

Pa rum pum pum pum

I played my drum for Him;

Pa rum pum pum pum

I played my best for Him.

Pa rum pum pum pum, 

rum pum pum pum,

rum pum pum pum

Then He smiled at me!

Pa rum pum pum pum

Me and my drum!

Baby Jesus, 

Pa rum pum pum pum

I am a poor boy too;

Pa rum pum pum pum

I have no gift to bring,

Pa rum pum pum pum

That’s fit to give our King. 

Pa rum pum pum pum,

rum pum pum pum,

rum pum pum pum

Shall I play for you,

Pa rum pum pum pum

On my drum.

Lord’s Prayer

Our Father Who Art In Heaven,

Hallowed Be Thy Name.

Thy Kingdom Come.

Thy Will Be Done

On Earth As It Is In Heaven.

Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread,

And Forgive Us Our Trespasses,

As We Forgive Those Who Trespass Against Us,

And Lead Us Not Into Temptation,

But Deliver Us From Evil.

For Thine Is The Kingdom,

And The Power, And The Glory,

For Ever And Ever

Amen

It Came Upon The Midnight Clear 

Verse 1

It came upon the midnight clear

That glorious song of old

From angels bending near the earth

To touch their harps of gold

Peace on the earth good will to men

From heaven’s all gracious King

The world in solemn stillness lay

To hear the angels sing

Verse 2

Still thro’ the cloven skies they come

With peaceful wings unfurled

And still their heavenly music floats

O’er all the weary world

Above its sad and lowly plains

They bend on hovering wing

And ever o’er its Babel sounds

The blessed angels sing

Verse 3

And 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

Come swiftly on the wing

O rest beside the weary road

And hear the angels sing

Verse 4

For lo the days are hastening on

By prophet bards foretold

When with the ever-circling years

Comes round the age of gold

When peace shall over all the earth

Its ancient splendors fling

And the whole world give back the song

Which now the angels sing

Verse 5

Yet with the woes of sin and strife

The world has suffered long

Beneath the angel strain have rolled

Two thousand years of wrong

And man at war with man hears not

The love song which they bring

O hush the noise ye men of strife

And hear the angels sing

Scripture

Romans 8:18-25

Sermon

To Hell and Back

Good Christian Men Rejoice

Verse 1

Good Christian men rejoice

With heart and soul and voice

Give ye heed to what we say

News news Jesus Christ is born today

Ox and ass before Him bow

And He is in the manger now

Christ is born today

Christ is born today

Verse 2

Good Christian men rejoice

With heart and soul and voice

Now ye hear of endless bliss

Joy joy Jesus Christ was born for this

He has opened heaven’s door

And man is blessed evermore

Christ was born for this

Christ was born for this

Verse 3

Good Christian men rejoice

With heart and soul and voice

Now ye need not fear the grave

Peace peace Jesus Christ was born to save

Calls you one and calls you all

To gain His everlasting hall

Christ was born to save

Christ was born to save

Benediction
