In Silent Night – Mictchell Southall
Edmund Choir
In silent night, when all is calm and all is bright;
In silent night, O holy night, the baby from heaven is born on this night.
The Child, innocent Child is born.
In silent night, as darkness flies and all is light.
In silent night, O holy night, the Baby in radiance lay sleep on this night.
The Child, the holy Child is born.
In silent night, this Son of God and son of man
Shall one day cry, and later die upon a cross for you and me.
The Child, the Prince of Peace is born.
Words and music by Mitchell Southall
Lo, How a Rose E’er Blooming

Ding dong, Merrily on High in heaven the bells are ringing.
Ding dong, verily the sky is riven with angel singing.

Even so here below, below, let steeple bells be swungen.
And Io, Io, Io by priest and people sungen.
Gloria, Hosanna in Excelsis!
Pray you, dutifully prime your matin chime, ye ringers;
May you beautifully rhyme your evetime song, ye singers.
Gloria, Hosanna in Excelsis!
