Track Name: rise up shepherd & follow
there's a star in the east on christmas morn,
showing where that baby's born.
take good heed of the angels' words,
you'll forget your flocks and forget your herds.

Rise up, shepherd, and follow.
Track Name: christmas is coming (the goose is getting fat)
christmas is coming
the goose is getting fat
please put a penny
in the old man's hat

if you havent got a penny
a half penny will do
if you haven't got a half penny
then god bless you
Track Name: what child is this?
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.

Why lies He in such mean estate,
Where ox and ass are feeding?
Good Christians, fear, for sinners here
The silent Word is pleading.

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.

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