Greek Orthodox Christmas Carols


Good evening to you noblemen
And if it is your wish
In praise here at your mansion,
Of Jesus’ birth I’ll sing.

Jesus Christ was born today
in town of Bethlehem
The skies above rejoicing
All nature satisfied.

T’was in a cave that he was born
And in a manger laid
The king of all the skies above
And maker of all things.

Angelic hosts are singing
All glory be to God
And holy be to shepherds
And to their faithfulness.

From Persia are arriving
Three magi with their gifts
The brightest star has led them there
No hour have they delayed.
