Lyrics:
Silent night, Holy night (x4)

Silent night, O Holy night
All is calm and all is bright (x2)

Round yon virgin, mother and child
Holy infant, tender and mild (x2)

Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace, child (x2)

Silent night, Holy night (x2)

Shepherds quake, at the sight
Son of God, love’s pure light

Radiant beams from thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace (x2)

Jesus, Lord at thy birth
Jesus, Lord at thy birth

Silent night, Holy night (x4)

Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace, child (x2)

Genre: Rock, Christmas, Carol, Indie,

Fast becoming a significant name in worship music, Citizens are back with more music, and following in the footsteps of fellow Mars Hill group King’s Kaleidoscope, this time it’s in the form of Christmas carols! On this track, the indie rock group have added their modern flair to the classic carol ‘Joy To The World‘ which opens their Christmas EP “Repeat The Sounding Joy“.

Lyrics:
Joy to the World , the Lord is come!
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare Him room,
And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven and nature sing,
And Heaven, and Heaven, and nature sing.

Joy to the World, the Savior reigns!
Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat, the sounding joy.

He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders, wonders, of His love.

Glory to God in the highest!
Let heaven and nature sing!
Glory to God in the highest!
Repeat the sounding joy!
Glory to God in the highest!
Repeat the sounding joy!
Glory to God in the highest!

Genre: Folk, Acoustic, Christmas Carol, Medley

The Oh Hellos are back and this time it’s with a festive release! Titled ‘The Oh Hellos’ Family Christmas Album’ this 4 track/25 minute musical epic takes the listener on a journey through the advent story by weaving together a number of well known carols in to a perfectly crafted medley. Often chopping and changing choruses from one carol to another, switching chord progressions, and then bursting back into a song they covered 5 minutes ago. Just in this track alone you’ll hear parts of “While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks”, “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen”, “The First Noel” and “O Come All Ye Faithful”. This album really has a little something for everyone and will no doubt be making it’s return year after year to the Christmas music selection.

Lyrics:
while shepherds watched their flocks by night
all seated on the ground
the angel of the Lord came down
and glory shone around
“fear not,” said he, for mighty dread
had seized their troubled minds
“glad tidings of great joy I bring,
to you and all mankind!”

o tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy
o tidings of comfort and joy

“to you in David’s town this day
is born of David’s line
the Savior, who is Christ the Lord,
and this shall be the sign:
the Heavenly Babe you there shall find
to human view displayed
and meanly wrapped in swathing bands
and in a manger laid”

o tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy
o tidings of comfort and joy

Noel! Noel!
Noel! Noel!
born is the King of Israel!

o come, let us adore Him!
o come, let us adore Him, Christ the Lord!

“all glory be to God on high,
and to the earth be peace!
good will henceforth from God to man:
begin and never cease!”

Genre: Electronica, Indie, Experimental, Christmas, Carol,

This song is taken from Future of Forestry’s second Christmas album, Advent Christmas EP, Vol 2. Eric Owyoung, the man behind FoF enjoys his Christmas songs and most years does a special Advent tour. This is his slightly less traditional cover of Joy To The World, starting in an experimental, electronica style and progressively becoming more traditional building up to the climax, where the song transitions into the hymn All Creatures Of Our God And King. Owyoung then wonderfully merges the hymns a second time and finishes this wonderful cover by reprising the original carol, what a musical journey!
