Track Name: Alleluia Anyway (2007)
Lights burning out on the family tree
Tepid Regard when good gifts are received
No decent part in the nativity play

Alleluia anyway

Dear little child, how I hardly know thee
Your parents were poor but kept good company
You slept in a barn and you cried when awake

Alleluia anyway

This child becomes man and then Calvary won
With a promise of peace when his Kingdom is come
Praise God forever, or at least for the day

Alleluia anyway
Track Name: In The Bleak Midwinter (2011)
In the bleak midwinter, icy wind made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron, water like a stone;
Snow on snow had fallen, snow on snow on snow,
In the bleak midwinter, long and long ago.

Angels and archangels may have gathered there,
Cherubim and seraphim rising in the air;
Oh but holy Mary, in her maiden bliss,
Worshipped the beloved with a mother's kiss.

Heaven cannot hold Him, nor can earth sustain;
Heaven and earth shall flee away when He comes to reign.

What then can I give Him, empty as I am?
If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;
If I were a Wise Man, I would know my part;
What then can I Him? I will give my heart.
Track Name: O Come, O Come Emmanuel (2014)
O come, O come, Emmanuel
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free
Thine own from Satan's tyranny
From depths of Hell Thy people save
And give them victory o'er the grave
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, Thou Day-Spring, come and cheer
Our spirits by Thine advent here
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night
And death's dark shadows put to flight.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, Thou Key of David, come,
And open wide our heavenly home;
Make safe the way that leads on high,
And close the path to misery.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.

O come, O come, Thou Lord of might,
Who to Thy tribes, on Sinai's height,
In ancient times did'st give the Law,
In cloud, and majesty and awe.
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.
Track Name: The Holly And The Ivy (2015)
The holly and the ivy,
When they are both full grown
Of all the trees that are in the wood
The holly bears the crown

CHORUS
O the rising of the sun
And the running of the deer
The playing of the merry organ
Sweet singing of the choir

The holly bears a blossom
As white as lily flower
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
To be our sweet Saviour
....

The holly bears a berry
As red as any blood
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
To do sinners good
...

The holly bears a prickle
As sharp as any thorn;
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
On Christmas Day in the morn.
...

The holly bears a bark
As bitter as any gall;
And Mary bore sweet Jesus Christ
For to redeem us all.
...
