Scotland the Brave Lyrics
Hark when the night is falling
Hear! Hear the pipes are calling,
Loudly and proudly calling,
Down thro’ the glen.
There where the hills are sleeping,
Now feel the blood a-leaping,
High as the spirits of the old Highland men.

Bring a Torch, Jeanette, Isabella is a Christmas carol which originated from the Provence region of France in the 16th century…

The carol tells the story of two milkmaids, Jeanette and Isabella, who went to milk their cows in a manger in Bethlehem, only to find the baby Jesus sleeping in the hay. The two girls ran to town to tell the village of the coming of Christ, and the townspeople came with their own torches to view the sight for themselves. However, they had to keep their voices down so little Jesus could enjoy his dreams. To this day in the Provence region, children dress up as shepherds and milkmaids, carrying torches and candles to Midnight Mass onChristmas Eve, while singing the carol…

Excerpt from Wikipedia

Lyrics
Bring a torch, Jeanette, Isabella
Bring a torch, to the cradle run!
It is Jesus good folk of the village;
Christ is born and Mary’s calling;
Ah! Ah! Beautiful is the mother!
Ah! Ah! Beautiful is her son!

Trivia
Here’s some news to blow the top off of this song.  There may have been more that three kings. Yep! There were three gifts presented to the baby Jesus, though the Bible does not indicate the number of Kings present. It is belived although, that there number was more than three, as kings prefered to travel in large groups for both protection and as a symbol of their importance.

Lyrics
We three kings of Orient are,
Bearing gifts we traverse afar.
Field and fountain, moor and mountain,
Following yonder star.

Carol of the Bells Lyrics (by Peter Wilhousky)

NBC Radio’s Peter Wilhousky  wrote the lyrics in 1936. The music reminded Wilhousky of ringing bells, which he captured in the imagery in his lyric.

Hark how the bells,
sweet silver bells,
all seem to say,
throw cares away
Christmas is here,
bringing good cheer,
to young and old,
meek and the bold,
Ding dong ding dong
that is their song
with joyful ring
all caroling
One seems to hear
words of good cheer
from everywhere
filling the air
Oh how they pound,
raising the sound,
o’er hill and dale,
telling their tale,
Gaily they ring
while people sing
songs of good cheer,
Christmas is here,
Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas,
Merry, merry, merry, merry Christmas,
On on they send,
on without end,
their joyful tone
to every home
Ding dong ding dong… dong!
