Year 1: List of all the Nativity songs!

Everyone is doing so well in preparation for our Nativity performance. Here is a list of all the Nativity songs to work on at home. If you are a narrator make sure you are having a go at learning your lines off by heart.

Silent Night

Silent night, Holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round young virgin mother and child
Holy infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace.

 

On the road to Bethlehem

On the road to Bethlehem

To Bethlehem, to Bethlehem

On the road to Bethlehem,

Come and join us there

On the road to Bethlehem

To Bethlehem, to Bethlehem

On the road to Bethlehem,

Come and join us there

 

Hear the angels sing, and church bells ring.

Its Christmas time once more

Come and see the baby king

Lying in the straw

Hear the angels sing, and church bells ring.

Its christmas time once more

Come and see the baby king

Knock upon his door

Knock Knock Knock!

 

On the road to Bethlehem

To Bethlehem, to Bethlehem

On the road to Bethlehem,

Come and join us there

On the road to Bethlehem

To Bethlehem, to Bethlehem

On the road to Bethlehem,

Come and join us there

Come and join us there, good to see you. Hope to see you there…!

 

Little Donkey
Little donkey, little donkey
On the dusty road
Got to keep on plodding onwards
With your precious load.

Been a long time, little donkey

Through the winter’s night

Don’t give up now, little donkey

Bethlehem’s in sight.

Chorus
Ring out those bells tonight
Bethlehem, Bethlehem
Follow that star tonight
Bethlehem, Bethlehem

 

Little donkey, little donkey

Had a heavy day

Little donkey

Carry Mary, safely on her way.

 

Mary had a baby

 

Mary had a baby, oh lord

Mary had a baby oh my lord

Mary had a baby oh lord

The people keep a coming and the train has gone.

 

Laid him in a manger, oh lord.

Laid him in a manger oh my lord,

Laid him in a manger oh lord

The people keep a coming and the train has gone.

 

Shepherds came to see him, oh lord

Shepherds came to see him oh my lord,

Shepherds came to see him oh lord,

The people keep a coming and the train has gone.

 

Named him baby Jesus, oh lord

Named him baby Jesus, oh my lord

Named him baby Jesus, oh lord

The people keep a coming and the train has gone.

 

 

Shepherds Dance

 

Shepherds, tell me

Did you see what I saw?

I saw angels

I can’t be so sure!

 

Shepherds, tell me

Did you hear what I heard?

I heard good news,

News for all the world!

 

Come on boy’s, let’s make a move

We’re off to Bethlehem!  (Repeat)

 

Shepherds, tell me

Why are you in a trance?

Come on! Wake up!

On your feet and dance.

 

Come on boy’s, let’s make a move

We’re off to Bethlehem!  (Repeat)

INSTRUMENTAL DANCE

Come on boy’s, let’s make a move

We’re off to Bethlehem!  (Repeat)

 

We wish you a Merry Christmas

 

We wish you a Merry Christmas

We wish you a Merry Christmas,

We wish you a Merry Christmas

And a happy new year!

 

Glad tidings we bring,

To you and your kin,

We wish you a Merry Christmas

And a happy new year!

(Repeat)
