Community Tree Lighting – Sunday 3rd December

Once again we will kick off our Christmas season with the Community Tree lighting event. We are ready for a great night where the community gathers together to celebrate the start of Advent and the lead up to Christmas.

Granton's Community Tree lighting event is on Sunday 3rd December at 5pm.

Once again we will kick off our Christmas season with the Community Tree lighting event.

We are preparing for a great night where the community gathers together to celebrate the start of Advent and the lead up to Christmas.

There will be singing, there will be mince pies, there will be fun and there will be a great gathering of people!

This year we are delighted to welcome the Ukranian Children’s choir who were a massive hit at our Summer Festival back in Juner.

Be part of your community by bringing your voice and your friends. Together we will remind each other why Granton is such a great place to be and this year the tree will be bigger than ever!

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed,
the little Lord Jesus, laid down his sweet head,
the stars in the bright sky,
looked down where he lay,
the little Lord Jesus, asleep on the hay;

The cattle are lowing, the Baby awakes,
but little Lord Jesus,
no crying he makes,

I love you, Lord Jesus,
look down from the sky,
and stay by my side,
until morning is nigh;

Be near me, Lord Jesus,
I ask you to stay,
close by me for ever,
and love me, I pray,
bless all the dear children,
in your tender care,
and fit us for heaven,
to live with you there.

Ding dong! Merrily on high
in heaven the bells are ringing.
Ding dong! Verily the sky
is riven with angels singing:
Gloria, hosanna in excelsis;
gloria, hosanna in excelsis!

 

E’en so, here below, below,
let steeple bells be swungen:
And i-o, i-o, i-o,
by Priest and people sungen!
Gloria, hosanna in excelsis;
gloria, hosanna in excelsis!

 

Pray you, dutifully prime
your matin chime, ye ringers;
may you beautifully rime
your eve-time song, ye singers:
Gloria, hosanna in excelsis;
gloria, hosanna in excelsis!
