- It was poor little Jesus
Mary, what you gonna name that pretty little Baby?
Yonder comes Sister Mary
Bright morning stars
Singing in the land
Mary had a baby
It's almost day
Wasn't that a mighty day
I heard-a from heaven today
Santa Claus blues
O, Jerusalem in the morning (I)
O, Jerusalem in the morning (II)
O, Mary, where is your Baby?
The new-born Baby
Joy to the world!
Ain't that a rocking all night
What month was my Jesus born in?
O, Mary and the Baby, sweet Lamb
Children, go where I send thee!
The angels 'round the throne
Go tell it on the mountains
Silent night, holy night
Christ was born in Bethlehem
Jesus borned in Bethlea
Rise up, shepherd, and follow.
