Christmastime in Asia

Joy!
I hear it all around me! It's a sound that can't be stopped!
It echoes through the valley and from the highest mountaintop!
What is that sound I'm hearing coming from each girl and boy?
Why is the whole world cheering? Is that the sound of joy?
Joy! Oh joy! Joy! Oh joy!
I see the sunrise! I see the river flowing! I see the bright blue sky!
I hear the music! I see the people dancing! I know the reason why!
Joy! Oh joy! Joy! Oh joy!

I hear it all around me! It's a sound that can't be stopped!
It echoes through the valley and from the highest mountaintop!
We celebrate the friendship shared with ev'ry girl and boy.
We sing and dance together. The world is filled with joy!
Joy! Oh joy! Joy! Oh joy!
Out in the country, or in the crowded city, the people smile and sing.
The high and mighty, the poor but not forgotten, all hear the same bells ring.
Joy! Oh joy! Joy! Oh joy!
Joy! Oh joy! Oh joy!

Hanukkah Again is Here

Saari & Kus:

Candles burning brightly in the night

Tell us of the Festival of Lights

In the temple of Jerusalem of old

Came a miracle, a wonder to behold

Dance children, sing children, ‘tis the festive time of year

Spin the dreidel ever faster, Hanukkah again is here!

Dance children, sing children, ‘tis the festive time of year

Arise and unite for Hanukkah again is here!

Stetson & Kytta:

Hush children, light the candles, light them one by one.

Tell the story of our God and precious freedom won!

Eight bright candles on the menorah glow

Tell us of the faith of long ago

La la la la la la, La la la la la la, ‘tis the festive time of year

La la la la la la, La la la la la la, Hanukkah again is here!

La la la la la la, La la la la la la, ‘tis the festive time of year

La la la la la la, La la la la la la, Hanukkah again is here!

Midnight Stars Make Bright the Skies
(Chinese spelled phonetically)
Midnight stars make bright the skies,
Bethlehem in slumber lies,
Glist'ning heaven sends forth a great light,
Shepherds see a wondrous sight!
Angel ranks in chorus sing!
Silken sounds from heaven ring!
Frightened shepherds hear them say,
"Christ is born on Earth today!"
Zhe gow rung yow zwee shung zhoo
Chen dee ren min foo oo tyung

Midnight slumber lies o'er all
One lone bright lamp lights the stall
Choose old clothing, wrap him warmly,
Manger shall his cradle be
Born to save us from our sin,
Word made flesh, our lives to win,
Came to earth from heaven's throne,
Mortals' sin to bear alone.
Zhe gow rung yow zwee shung zhoo
Chen dee ren min foo oo tyung
