COMMUNITY CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTING
SUNDAY 1ST DECEMBER at 5PM

 

Granton’s Community Tree lighting event is on Sunday 1st  December at 5pm.

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

This has become a great night where the community gathers together to celebrate Christmas. There will be singing, there will be mince pies, there will be fun and there will be a great gathering of people!

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!

 

Ring out those Christmas bells; Ring out those Christmas bells to welcome Jesus.

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.

 

Come and join the celebration,
It’s a very special day.
Come and share our jubilation:
There’s a new King born today!

See the Shepherds
hurry down to Bethlehem,
Gaze in wonder
at the Son of God who lies before them.

Come and join the celebration,
It’s a very special day.
Come and share our jubilation:
There’s a new King born today!

Wise men journey,
led to worship by a star,
Kneel in homage,
bearing precious gifts
from lands afar.

Come and join the celebration,
It’s a very special day.
Come and share our jubilation:
There’s a new King born today!

“God is with us,”
to the world the message bring.
He is with us!
“Welcome!” all the bells on earth are pealing.

Come and join the celebration,
It’s a very special day.
Come and share our jubilation:
There’s a new King born today!



O Come all ye faithful,
Joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem;
Come and behold him
Born the King of Angels;

O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him,
Christ the Lord.

God of God,
Light of Light,
Lo! He abhors not the Virgin’s womb;
Very God,
Begotten, not created;

O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him,
Christ the Lord.

Sing, choirs of angels,
Sing in exultation,
Sing, all ye citizens of heaven above,
‘Glory to God
In the highest’:

O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him,
Christ the Lord.

 

O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him,
Christ the Lord.

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!
