I love to spend Sundays in December with the Primary children at church. Yesterday I was asked to fill in on the piano while they learned The Nativity Song. Picture a Christmas is another of our favorites. The links will take you to a page where you can download a pdf version of the sheet music for piano and an mp3 recording of children singing the songs. I hope you’ll love these songs, and feel the reverent spirit of Christmas as much as I do! And when you do, please share it with the children in your life! Isaiah 54:13 (KJV) ~ And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD; and great shall be the peace of thy children.
Picture a sacred, silent night.
And can you hear
The angels near
And see the star so bright?
Sing praise to him;
As you picture Christmas this year.
And can you see
The shepherds kneeling there?

Sing a rhyme; Christmastime soon will be here.
Tell the true story of Jesus’ birth,
When, as a baby, he came to the earth.
Lighting the world on that first Christmas night.
This is the angel proclaiming the birth,
Singing “Hosanna!” and “Peace on the earth!”
Cattle and oxen first welcomed him there.
This is the manger, sweet hay for a bed,
Waiting for Jesus to cradle his head.
Hast’ning to worship the heavenly child.
These are the wise men who followed the star,
Frankincense, gold, and myrrh brought from afar.
Joseph, who guided the donkey with care.
See the dear baby of Bethlehem,
Little Lord Jesus, the Savior of men.
