Track Name: Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence
Let all mortal flesh keep silence,
And with fear and trembling stand;
Ponder nothing earthly minded,
For with blessings in His hand,
Christ our God to earth descendeth
Our full homage to demand.

King of kings, yet born of Mary,
As of old on earth He stood,
Lord of lords, in human vesture,
In the body and the blood;
He will give to all the faithful
His own self for heavenly food.

Rank on rank the host of heaven
Spreads its vanguard on the way,
As the Light of light descendeth
From the realms of endless day,
That the powers of hell may vanish
As the darkness clears away.

At His feet the six winged seraph,
Cherubim with sleepless eye,
Veil their faces to the presence,
As with ceaseless voice they cry:
Alleluia, Alleluia
Alleluia, Lord Most High!
Track Name: What is this Fragrance?
What is this fragrance softly stealing?
Shepherds! It sets my heart a-stir!
Never was sweetness so appealing-
Never were flowers of spring so fair!
What is this fragrance softly stealing?
Shepherds! It sets my heart a-stir!

What is this Light around us streaming?
Out of the dark – with blinding ray –
Purer than Star of Morning’s seeming –
Showing our path as plain as day!
What is this Light around us streaming?
Out of the dark – with blinding ray!

What is this Wonder all around us
Filling the air with Music light!
Shepherd! some magic here hath found us!
Never mine ears knew such delight!
What is this Wonder all around us
Filling the air with Music light!

Track Name: In Dulci Jubilo
In dulci jubilo,
Now sing with hearts aglow!
Our delight and pleasure lies
In prasepio
Like sunshine is our treasure
Matris in gremio
Alpha es et O! Alpha es et O!

O Jesu Parvule,
For thee I sing alway;
Comfort my heart’s blindness,
O puer optime,
With all thy loving kindness,
O princeps gloriae
Trahe me post te! Trahe me post te!

O Patris caritas!
O Nati Lenitas!
Deeply were we stained
Per nostra crimina;
But thou for us hast gained
Coelorum gaudia
Eia, wären wir da! Eia, wären wir da!

Ubi sunt gaudia
In any place but there?
There are angels singing
Nova cantica,
And there the bells are ringing
In Regis curia,
Eia, wären wir da!
O that we were there!
Track Name: Coventry Carol
Refrain-
Lully, lullay, thou little tiny child,
By by, lully, lullay.

Verses-
O sisters too, how may we do
for to preserve this day
this poor youngling, for whom we do sing?
By by, lully lullay.

Herod the king, in his raging,
charged he hath this day
his men of might, in his own sight,
all young children to slay.

That woe is me, poor child, for thee!
And ever morn and day,
for thy parting neither say nor sing
by by, lully, lullay!
