Go Tell It On The Mountain-Francesca Battistelli

Go tell it on the mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere,
Go tell it on the mountain,
That Jesus Christ is born.

While shepherds kept their watching
O'er silent flocks by night
Behold, throughout the heavens
There shone a holy light.

Go tell it on the mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere,
Go tell it on the mountain,
That Jesus Christ is born.
Jesus Christ is born.

Down in a lowly manger
Our humble Christ was born
And God sent us salvation
That blessed Christmas morn.

Go tell it on the mountain,
Over the hills and everywhere,
Go tell it on the mountain,
That Jesus Christ is born.
Jesus Christ is born.
Jesus Christ is born.


Christmas Dreams-Francesca Battistelli

I blow out the candles, unplug the tree
There's no one awake at midnight but me
I slip down the hall and amid the moon beams
My kids are tucked in, dreaming Christmas dreams
Days of such wonder, magic-filled nights, moments they'll look back on all
Of their lifes
So much time wide- eyed at holiday scenes
Now they're worn out, dreaming Christmas dreams

[Chorus:]
Dreams of cookies and cards, boxes and bows
Storefronts and stockings and days when it snows
With all of the secrets that this season keeps
It's a wonder at all that they fall asleep

I smile as I kiss them
Cause' under that tree
Are surprises that they're not expecting to see
We're just hours away from their giggles and screams
They'll be answers to all their Christmas dreams

[Chorus:]
Dreams of tinsel and toys and Santa's workshop
Noises at night coming from the rooftop
With all of the secrets that this season keeps
It's a wonder at all that they fall asleep

The thought comes to mind that I may be the one
Who's most excited for what's yet to come
As I crawl in bed, I laugh cause' it seems
Guess never too old for Christmas
No, you're never too old, no, you're never too
Old for Christmas Dreams

Joy To The World -Francesca Battistelli

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
Wild fields and floods, rocks hills and plains
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat the sounding joy
Repeat, repeat, the sounding joy
Yeah, oh, yeah
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
Ooh, oh, yeah
Oh, the wonders of His love, yeah

You're Here-Francesca Battistelli

Hold on now, got to take a deep breath
I don't know what to say when I look in your eyes
You made the world before I was born
And here I am holding you in my arms tonight

Noel, Noel
Jesus our Emmanuel

You're here, I'm holding you so near
I'm staring into the face of my Savior
King and Creator
You could of left us on our own
But you're here

I don't know how long I'm going to have you for
But I'll be watching when you change the world
Look at your hands, they're still so small
Someday you're going
To stretch them out and save us all

Noel, Noel
God with us, Emmanuel

You're here, I'm holding you so near, oh, oh
I'm staring into the face of my Savior
King and Creator
You could of left us on our own
But you're here, you're here

Someday I'm going to look back on this
The night that God became a baby boy
Someday you're going to go home again
But you'll leave your spirit
And flood the world with joy

You'll be here, I'm holding you so near, oh, oh
I'm staring into the face of my Savior
King and Creator
You could of left me on my own
But you're here, You're here

Hallelujah, You're here
Hallelujah, You're here

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas-Francesca Battistelli

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
From now on
Our troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the Yuletide gay
From now on
Our troubles will be miles away

Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more

Through the years
We all will be together
If the Lord allows
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough
Oh, and have yourself
A merry little Christmas now

Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more

Through the years
We all will be together
If the Lord allows
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough

Oh, and have yourself
A merry little Christmas now
Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Merry Christmas now

O Come, O Come, Emmanuel-Francesca Battistelli

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.

Marshmallow World-Francesca Battistelli

It's a marshmallow world in the winter
When the snow comes to cover the ground
It's the time for play
It's a whip cream day
I wait for it the whole year 'round.

Those marshmallow clouds being friendly
In the arms of the evergreen trees
And the sun is red
Like a pumpkin head
It's shining so your nose won't freeze.

The world is your snowball, see how it grows
That's how it goes whenever it snows
The world is your snowball just for a song
Get out and roll it along.

It's a yum-yummy world made for sweethearts
Take a walk with your favorite girl
It's a sugar date
What if spring is late
In winter it's a marshmallow world.

The world is your snowball, see how it grows
That's how it goes whenever it snows
The world is your snowball just for a song
Get out and roll it along.

It's a yum-yummy world made for sweethearts
Take a walk with your favorite girl
It's a sugar date
What if spring is late
In winter it's a marshmallow world.

In winter it's a marshmallow world!

What Child Is This? (First Noël Prelude)-Francesca Battistelli

The first Noël
The angels did say
Was to certain poor shepherds
In fields as they lay

In fields where they
Lay keeping their sheep
On a cold winter's night
That was so deep

Noël, Noël, Noël, Noël
Born is the King of Israel
Noël, Noël, Noël, Noël
Born is the King of Israel

What Child is this who laid to rest
On Mary's lap is sleeping?
Whom Angels greet with anthems sweet,
While shepherds watch are keeping?

This, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and Angels sing;
Haste, haste, to bring Him laud,
The Babe, the Son of Mary.

So bring Him incense, gold and myrrh,
Come peasant, king to own Him;
The King of kings salvation brings,
Let loving hearts enthrone Him.

Raise, raise a song on high,
The virgin sings her lullaby.
Joy, joy for Christ is born,
The Babe, the Son of Mary.

This, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and Angels sing;
Haste, haste, to bring Him laud,
The Babe, the Son of Mary.

Christmas Is-Francesca Battistelli

Christmas is music and family in town
Christmas is Snoopy and Charlie brown
It's anticipating that snow's gonna fall
And praying for someplace to park at the mall
It's mom going crazy cause the turkey got burned
It's saying thanks for some gift you'll return
Christmas is caroling kids at your door
It's paper and ribbon all over the floor

Christmas is coming, Christmas is near
I've been counting down the days all year
Christmas is almost here

Christmas is rooftops covered in lights
It's away in a manger, it's a wonderful life
Christmas is caring for those who got nothing
It's dropping your change in the bell ringer's bucket

Christmas is coming, Christmas is near
I've been counting down the days all year
Christmas is almost here

Christmas is all of these fun things for sure
But, Christmas is really, oh so much more
It's good news of hope for the whole world because
Christmas is Jesus!

Christmas is coming, Christmas is near
I've been counting down the days
I've been counting down the days
I've been counting down the days all year
Christmas is almost here

Heaven Everywhere-Francesca Battistelli

I hear the bells, they're ringing loud and clear
You can't help but love this time of year
It's Christmastime, there's something in the air
There's a little bit of heaven everywhere

Somehow there's a little more of love
And maybe there's a little less of us
Or maybe we're just slightly more aware
There's a little bit of heaven everywhere

[Chorus:]
It's the smile on a man who has finally found hope
It's the tears of a mother whose child has come home
It's the joy that we feel and the love that we share
There's a little bit of heaven everywhere
There's a little bit of heaven everywhere

It's funny how it takes a holiday
To show us how the world could truly change
If we all took the time to really care
There'd be a little more of heaven everywhere

[Chorus]

It's the grace that we show to a world that needs hope
It's giving our lives knowing they're not our own
It's the joy that we feel and the love that we share
There's a little bit of heaven everywhere
There's a little bit of heaven everywhere

[Bridge:]
Angels we have heard on high
Sweetly singing o'er the plain
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strains
Hallelujah, halleljuah

It's the joy that we feel and the love that we share
There's a little bit of heaven everywhere
There's a little bit of heaven everywhere
There's a little bit of heaven everywhere

[Tag:]
Angels we have heard on high
Sweetly singing o'er the plain

The Christmas Song-Francesca Battistelli

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire,
Jack Frost nipping on your nose,
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir,
And folks dressed up like Eskimos.

Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe,
Help to make the season bright.
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow,
Will find it hard to sleep tonight.

They know that Santa's on his way;
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh.
And every mother's child is going to spy,
To see if reindeer really know how to fly.

And so I'm offering this simple phrase,
To kids from one to ninety-two,
Although its been said many times, many ways,
Merry Christmas to you

Although its been said many times, many ways,
