Six Christmas Printables

As a singer, I love Christmas.  My favorite carols to sing aren't the ones about Santa Claus or Frosty the Snowman, though they are definitely fun.  My favorite carols are the ones that center on Christ's birth.  I love the lyrics and I love the beautiful melodies, but mostly I love how I feel when I sing them.

I wanted to use a few of my favorites to decorate with this Christmas Season, but then I couldn't narrow them down, so I just kept making them.  I'd like to share them with you.

O Holy Night Free Christmas Printable

O Holy Night is, hands down, my very favorite Christmas carol to sing.  Sometimes I can't even make it through all of the verses without starting to choke up a little.  I love it.

Oh Come Let Us Adore Him Free Christmas Printable

Gesu Bambino takes a close second to O Holy Night.  Of course, this line is also found in Oh Come All Ye Faithful. 
Son of God Love's Pure Light Free Christmas Printable

What is Christmas without Silent Night?  Joel and I recently saw Cantus in their "All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914" concert.  Wow.  It was amazing.  And it solidified the point that we cannot have Christmas without singing Silent Night.

Let Earth Recieve Her King Free Christmas Printable

So far, all of these songs are reverent and a little more solemn.  Joy to the World captures another side of Christmas—the absolute joy (because there really isn't a better word) we should feel when we think of our Savior and the fact that he came to Earth to save us.

Glory to the Newborn King Free Christmas Printable

Hark, the Herald Angels Sing is perhaps one of the more iconic Christmas carols out there.  It always reminds me of the end of It's a Wonderful Life! when Barney finally gets his wings.  Musically, it's not my favorite to sing, but it must be sung for Christmas to feel like Christmas.

Born is the King of Israel Free Christmas Printable

Finally we have the last line of The First Noel.  I love to sing the chorus of this one, I find it absolutely beautiful.  Born is the King of Israel!

I have so many other favorites—I love singing about the birth of Christ.  But I had to stop somewhere.  I hope you enjoy them!

  1. Very nice printables!

    I am teaching music at an elementary school so I have been singing for days now. All the fun Christmas songs plus some serious ones. I have a Christmas song stuck in my head 24/7. :)
