17 Beautiful Christmas Hymns to Uplift your Soul (with Free Printable Lyrics)

Looking for Christmas hymns to sing this holiday season? Christmas is a wonderful season to reflect on our Savior, and to sing beautiful Christmas hymns with the lyrics rich with Scripture. There are many things to enjoy about the Christmas season.

We love the lights, the decorations, the nativity scenes, and the Christmas season would not be complete without the wonderful Christmas hymns and Christmas carols that brighten our spirits and uplift our souls.

For many years my wonderful sister has bought tickets for me and my husband to the Christmas symphony for my birthday. Hearing my favorite melodies of the holiday season has a magical effect on my heart.

The Christmas lights, stunning scenery, and the beautiful music is a wonderful experience to enjoy.

Hearing familiar tunes like Sleigh Ride, and Silver Bells are nice, but the carols that powerfully echo the truth of my Savior are the songs that stir my soul with joy, passion and praise.

Even secular musicians and listeners in the audience who don’t yet know Christ as their Savior are surrounded with a harmonious chorus that points to a God who deeply loves them…who loved the world enough to come down as a tiny baby.

Christmas sings and hymns to sing this Christmas

God with us.

Wrapped in flesh and swaddling clothes, and later…

wrapped in burial cloths and placed in a tomb–to save humanity.

“O Come, O Come, Emmanuel, and ransom captive Israel…” (O Come, O Come Emmanuel)

Our Emmanuel has come. He paid our ransom. We are no longer captives to sin and sorrow, but now can have new life in Him. During this holiday season, Christmas songs are played everywhere. In malls and grocery stores. Doctor’s offices and waiting rooms.

If the world would stop the hustle and bustle of their daily to-do’s, they would hear His message proclaimed in the airwaves…

“Joy to the world, the Lord is come, let earth receive her king…” (Joy to the World)

You have come, Lord. But have we received you?

The earth is groaning. Pain and sorrow are rampant. Yet this is the season people hear the message of Christ’s love more than any other time of year. The world needs to know that a Savior has come. 

Events on the evening news are a constant reminder that our world is broken and bleeding.

“Long lay the world, in sin and error pining, till He appeared, and the soul felt it’s worth…” (O Holy Night)

But our Savior has come, and it is marvelous in our eyes. The Prince of all peace has come and rules righteously with all power in his hands.

“Peace on the Earth, good will to men from Heaven’s all-gracious King…” (It Came Upon  Midnight Clear)

God’s promise of salvation and of his second coming gives us hope, peace and great comfort and joy. “Oh tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy!” (God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen)

As you sing these (and many more) Christmas hymns this season, it is crucial that we remember these truths all year long. The next time you attend a Christmas concert or stand in the grocery line, will you share Christ’s message of love and salvation to those around you?

The world needs to know that he has come–and that he is coming again. Let’s share the good news of our precious Lord this season–in word, in deed, and in song!

1. Christmas Hymns: Silent Night

What a beloved Christmas hymn! Can you imagine the beauty and stillness of that Holy Night  When our precious savior was born? We can only imagine what the shepherd’s witnessed when they heard the announcement of the angel in the fields, and went to see what good tidings the angel spoke of in Luke 2:10-11.

Lyrics:

Silent night, holy night

All is calm, all is bright

‘Round yon virgin Mother and Child

Holy infant so tender and mild

Sleep in heavenly peace

Sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night, holy night! 

Shepherds quake at the sight! 

Glories stream from heaven afar; 

Heavenly hosts sing Al-le-lu-ia! 

Christ the Savior is born! 

Christ the Savior is born! 

Christ the Savior is born!

Silent night, holy night 

Son of God, oh, love’s pure light 

Radiant beams from Thy holy face 

With the dawn of redeeming grace 

Jesus, Lord at Thy birth 

Jesus, Lord at Thy birth 

Scripture: While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born…

2. Christmas Hymns: Away in a Manger

Many of us picture Jesus wrapped in cute swaddling clothes and lying in a comfy, cozy manger with soft hay and mowing animals admiring Jesus with a smile. Many children’s Christmas books often capture this image, but the truth is, Jesus was born in what resembled a cave more than the typical barn image we see in many books.

It wasn’t cute and quaint, but a dirty, filthy place we’re animals lived. How amazing is it that our Savior humbly left his throne in heaven to be placed in a lowly manger! 

Lyrics:

Away in a manger

No crib for His bed

The little Lord Jesus

Lay down His sweet head

The stars in the sky 

Look down where He lay 

The little Lord Jesus 

Asleep on the hay

The cattle are lowing 

The poor Baby wakes 

But little Lord Jesus 

No crying He makes 

I love Thee, Lord Jesus 

Look down from the sky 

And stay by my side’ 

Til morning is nigh

Be near me, Lord Jesus 

I ask Thee to stay 

Close by me forever 

And love me, I pray 

Bless all the dear children 

In Thy tender care 

And take us to Heaven 

To live with Thee there

Scripture: And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. Luke 2:7

3. Christmas Hymns: Hark! The Herald Angels Sing

This is a Christmas hymn that we all love to sing. What a majestic celebration it must have been as the host of angels announced to the shepherds that Jesus was born. Was a glorious sight that must have been to behold!

Lyrics:

Hark! The herald angels sing

Glory to the newborn king

Peace on earth and mercy mild

God and sinners reconciled

Joyful, all ye nations rise 

Join the triumph of the skies 

With the angelic host proclaim: 

“Christ is born in Bethlehem 

“Hark! The herald angels sing 

“Glory to the newborn King!”

Christ by highest heav’n adored 

Christ the everlasting Lord! 

Late in time behold Him come 

Offspring of a Virgin’s womb 

Veiled in flesh the Godhead see 

Hail the incarnate Deity 

Pleased as man with man to dwell 

Jesus, our Emmanuel Hark! 

The herald angels sing 

“Glory to the newborn King!”

Hail the heav’n-born Prince of Peace! 

Hail the Son of Righteousness! 

Light and life to all He brings 

Ris’n with healing in His wings 

Mild He lays His glory by 

Born that man no more may die 

Born to raise the sons of earth 

Born to give them second birth 

Hark! The herald angels sing 

“Glory to the newborn King!”

Scripture: Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” Luke 2:13-14

4. Christmas Hymns: O Come, All Ye Faithful

This Christmas hymn joyfully invites all people to come and see Christ, the newborn king–born in Bethlehem.  If we lived in the time of Jesus’s birth, would we have believed that Jesus was truly the Son of God?

Would we have expected him to come as a tiny child? What an exciting time that must have been for Israel! Now today, we can all come and adore Christ, our newborn king! 

Lyrics:

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

Oh, sing, choirs of angels 

Sing in exultation 

Sing, all ye citizens of Heaven above! 

Glory to God, glory in the highest:

O come, let us adore Him 

O come, let us adore Him 

O come, let us adore Him 

Christ the Lord 

Yea, Lord, we greet thee, 

Born this happy morning;

Jesus, to thee be glory given! 

Word of the Father, 

Now in flesh appearing! 

O come, let us adore Him 

O come, let us adore Him 

O come, let us adore Him 

Christ the Lord 

Scripture: So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child… Luke 2:16-17

5. Christmas Hymns: It Came Upon a Midnight Clear

I have always enjoyed singing this Christmas hymn in church services growing up.  It is such a great reminder that in the stillness of the night, peace came to her through Christ.

Lyrics:

It came upon the midnight clear 

That glorious song of old 

From angels bending near the earth 

To touch their harps of gold 

“Peace on the earth, goodwill to men

From Heaven’s all gracious King!” 

The world in solemn stillness lay 

To hear the angels sing 

Still through the cloven skies they come 

With peaceful wings unfurled 

And still their heavenly music floats 

O’er all the weary world 

Above its sad and lowly plains 

They bend on hovering wing 

And ever over its Babel sounds 

The blessed angels sing

O ye beneath life’s crushing load 

Whose forms are bending low 

Who toil along the climbing way 

With painful steps and slow 

Look now, for glad and golden hours 

Come swiftly on the wing 

Oh rest beside the weary road 

And hear the angels sing 

Scripture: And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. Luke 2:7

6. Christmas Hymns: Joy to the World!

The Christmas hymn Joy to the World is a favorite of many people all around the world. I love the part of the song that says “let every heart prepare him room”. How have we made room in our hearts for our newborn king?

It is sometimes easy to forget the power and the true meaning of Christmas when we spend so much time focusing on the Christmas cookies, hustle and bustle of getting gifts, Christmas decorations, and lights.

Let’s make sure that we make room in our hearts for our wonderful Savior this season!

christmas hymns

Lyrics:

Joy to the world,

The Lord is come

Let earth receive her King

Let every heart prepare him room

Let heaven and nature sing

And Heaven and nature sing

And Heaven and nature sing

Joy to the earth, the Savior reigns! 

Let men their songs employ 

While fields & floods, rocks, hills & plains 

Repeat the sounding joy 

Repeat the sounding joy

Repeat the sounding joy

No more let sins and sorrows grow, 

Nor thorns infest the ground 

He comes to make his blessings flow 

Far as the curse is found

Far as the curse is found 

Far as the curse is found 

He rules the world with truth and grace, 

And makes the nations prove 

The glories of His righteousness, 

And wonders of His love  

And wonders of His love 

And wonders of His love 

Scripture: You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore. Psalm 16:11

7. Christmas Hymns: O Little Town of Bethlehem

The Hebrew word for Bethlehem means House of Bread. How wonderful is it that Jesus, who later proclaimed himself to be the Bread of Life in John 6:35, was born in the House of Bread! Let’s make sure this Christmas season that we come hungry for more of Jesus, the Bread of Life, and receive our spiritual sustenance and strength from him!

Lyrics:

O little town of Bethlehem 

How still we see thee lie 

Above thy deep and dreamless sleep 

The silent stars go by 

Yet in thy dark streets shineth 

The everlasting Light 

The hopes and fears of all the years 

Are met in thee tonight 

For Christ is born of Mary 

And gathered all above 

While mortals sleep, the angels keep 

Their watch of wondering love 

O morning stars together 

Proclaim the holy birth 

And praises sing to God the King 

And Peace to men on earth

O holy Child of Bethlehem 

Descend to us, we pray 

Cast out our sin and enter in 

Be born to us today 

We hear the Christmas angels 

The great glad tidings tell 

O come to us, abide with us 

Our Lord Emmanuel 

O come to us, abide with us 

Our Lord Emmanuel

Scripture: So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. Luke 2:74

o little town of bethlehem lyrics

8. Christmas Hymns: The First Noel

The Christmas hymn The First Noel is another popular Christmas ham during the holiday season.  The word “noel” in French means birth (source). As we focus on the birth of Christ through Christmas, we are reminded of how we are born again through Jesus!

Lyrics:

The first noel the angel did say 

Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay 

In fields where they lay, keeping their sheep 

On a cold winter’s night that was so deep 

Noel, noel, noel, noel 

Born is the King of Israel

They looked up and saw a star, 

Shining in the east, beyond them far 

And to the earth it gave great light, 

And so it continued both day and night

Noel, noel, noel, noel 

Born is the King of Israel

And by the light of that same star, 

Three Wise Men came from country far 

To seek for a King was their intent, 

And to follow the star whersoever it went

Noel, noel, noel, noel 

Born is the King of Israel

This star drew nigh to the north-west 

O’er Bethlehem it took its rest 

And there it did both stop and stay 

Right over the place where Jesus lay

Noel, noel, noel, noel 

Born is the King of Israel

Scripture: Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:3

the first noel lyrics

9. Christmas Hymns: We Three Kings of Orient Are

Composed by episcopal musician John Hopkins Jr. in 1857, many are familiar with the tune of “We Three Kings of Orient Are”. This popular Christmas hymn highlights the journey of the wise men (or “magi”) from Matthew 2, and how they followed the bright star that led them to Jesus. Though Scripture does not tell us specifically how many magi there were, this poetic song reminds us to seek the heart of our Savior with determination and perseverance like the wise men!

Lyrics:

We three kings of orient are 

Bearing gifts we traverse afar 

Field and fountain 

Moor and mountain 

Following yonder star

O star of wonder, star of night 

Star with royal beauty bright 

Westward leading, still proceeding 

Guide us to thy perfect light

Born a King on Bethlehem’s plain 

Gold I bring to crown Him again 

King for ever, ceasing never 

Over us all to reign 

Frankincense to offer have I 

Incense owns a Deity nigh 

Prayer and praising 

All men raising 

Worship Him, God most high

O star of wonder, star of night 

Star with royal beauty bright 

Westward leading, still proceeding 

Guide us to thy perfect light

Scripture: After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.” Matthew 2:1-2

we three kings of orient are lyrics

10. Christmas Hymns: Go, Tell it on the Mountain

The beloved song “Go Tell it On the Mountain” is an African American spiritual that was included in a compilation of songs in the second volume of a book by John Wesley Work Jr. (source). This Christmas hymn proclaims how we can “go tell” the wonderful news of Christ’s birth to others.

Lyrics:

Go tell it on the mountain 

Over the hills and everywhere 

Go tell it on the mountain 

Our Jesus Christ is born 

When I was a seeker 

I sought both night and day 

I asked the Lord to help me 

And he showed me the way

Go tell it on the mountain 

Over the hills and everywhere 

Go tell it on the mountain 

Our Jesus Christ is born

He made me a watchman 

Upon a city wall 

And if I am a Christian 

I am the least of all 

Go tell it on the mountain 

Over the hills and everywhere 

Go tell it on the mountain 

Our Jesus Christ is born 

Scripture: When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about.”

So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. When they had seen him, they spread the word concerning what had been told to them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. Luke 2:15-18

go tell it on the mountain lyrics

11. Christmas Hymns: God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen is a traditional English carol that has warmed the hearts of many for generations. What a blessing it is to know that we have comfort and joy through the salvation of our Lord and Savior!

Lyrics:

God rest ye merry gentlemen 

Let nothing you dismay 

Remember Christ our Savior 

Was born on Christmas Day 

To save us all from Satan’s pow’r 

When we were gone astray

Oh tidings of comfort and joy 

Comfort and joy 

Oh tidings of comfort and joy

From God our heavenly Father 

A blessed angel came, 

And unto certain shepherds 

Brought tidings of the same, 

How that in Bethlehem was born 

The Son of God by name

Oh tidings of comfort and joy 

Comfort and joy 

Oh tidings of comfort and joy

The shepherds at those tidings 

Rejoiced much in mind, 

And left their flocks a-feeding

In tempest, storm and wind, 

And went to Bethlehem straightway, 

This blessed Babe to find

Oh tidings of comfort and joy 

Comfort and joy 

Oh tidings of comfort and joy

Scripture: Then young women will dance and be glad, young men and old as well. I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow. Jeremiah 31:13

God rest ye merry gentlemen lyrics

12. Christmas Hymns: I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day

The lyrics of the poem “I Heard the Bells of Christmas Day” were penned by American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow on Christmas day in 1863 (source).

After tragically losing his wife two years prior and after watching his oldest son endure life threatening injuries during the civil war, all seemed bleak in Longfellow’s life. 

How could there truly be peace on earth in the midst of such heartache? This Christmas poem (that was later put to music by John Baptiste Calkin) eloquently describes the prevailing power of Christ’s love and righteousness, even in the midst of pain and suffering.

Lyrics:

I heard the bells on Christmas Day 

Their old, familiar carols play, and wild and sweet 

The words repeat Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And thought how, as the day had come, 

The belfries of all Christendom Had rolled along 

The unbroken song Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

Till ringing, singing on its way, 

The world revolved from night to day, 

A voice, a chime, A chant sublime 

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

Then from each black, accursed mouth,

The cannon thundered in the South,

And with the sound

The carols drowned

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

It was as if an earthquake rent

The hearth-stones of a continent,

And made forlorn

The households born

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And in despair I bowed my head ;

“There is no peace on earth,” I said ;

“For hate is strong

And mocks the song

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!”

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:

“God is not dead ; nor doth he sleep !

The Wrong shall fail,

The Right prevail,

With peace on earth, good-will to men !”

Scripture: “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” Luke 2:14

christmas hymn 12

13. Christmas Hymns: What Child is This?

This beautiful, melodic hymn was written by William Chatterton Dix in the mid 1600’s to the tune of the song “Greensleeves”. The lyrics of this song make it easy to imagine a curious onlooker admiring the sleeping baby in Mary’s lap–Jesus, the Savior of the world.

Lyrics:

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 

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

Oh, raise, raise a song on high, 

His mother sings her lullaby

Joy, joy for Christ is born, 

The Babe, the Son of Mary

This, this is Christ the King, 

Whom shepherds guard and 

Angels sing Haste, haste, to bring Him laud, 

The Babe, the Son, of Mary 

Scripture: On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Matthew 2:11

I heard the bells on Christmas day lyrics

14. Christmas Hymns: Good Christian Men Rejoice

This ancient Christmas tune was originally written in Latin and German, and was translated into a more modern hymn in the 19th century by John Mason Neale (source). Other versions of this song involve the more inclusive phrase “good Christian friends rejoice”.

This is a joyful, triumphant hymn that hails the praise of our Lord and Savior.

Lyrics:

Good Christian men rejoice 

With heart and soul and voice! 

Give ye heed to what we say 

News! News!

Jesus Christ is born today! 

Ox and ass before Him bow 

And He is in the manger now 

Christ is born today! 

Christ is born today!

Good Christian men, rejoice 

With heart and soul and voice 

Now ye hear of endless bliss 

Joy! Joy! 

Jesus Christ was born for this 

He hath ope’d the heav’nly door 

And man is blessed evermore 

Christ was born for this 

Christ was born for this

Scripture: Once more the humble will rejoice in the Lord; the needy will rejoice in the Holy One of Israel. Isaiah 29:19

Good Christian men rejoice

15. Christmas Hymns: O Come, O Come Emmanuel

I love the melodic, mystical feel of the song “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel”. This was originally written in Latin, and dates back to the early 8th or 9th century (source).

Though this song does not openly reference Jesus being born in the manger like many other Christmas hymns, I love how it invites us to call on our Emmanuel (which means God with us), becoming him to come and dwell among us.

In the midst of the painful world we live in, we can take comfort in the fact that our Emmanuel will give us victory over sin and death.

Lyrics: 

O come, O come, Emmanuel 

And ransom captive Israel 

That mourns in lonely exile here 

Until the Son of God appear 

Rejoice, rejoice, 

Emmanuel Shall come to thee, O Israel

O come, Thou Rod of Jesse, free 

Thine own from Satan’s tyranny 

From depths of Hell 

Thy people save 

And give them victory o’er the grave 

Rejoice, rejoice, 

Emmanuel Shall come to thee, O Israel

O come, Thou Day-Spring Come and cheer 

Our spirits by Thine advent here 

Disperse the gloomy clouds of night 

And death’s dark shadows put to flight 

Rejoice, rejoice, 

Emmanuel Shall come to thee, o Israel 

O come, Thou Key of David, come 

And open wide our heavenly home 

Make safe the way that leads on high 

And close the path to misery

Rejoice, rejoice, Emmanuel 

Shall come to thee, O Israel

Scripture: “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”).

o come o come emmanuel image

16. Christmas Hymns: Angels We Have Heard on High

Angels We Have Heard on High is a French carol with no known author, but has been a staple Christmas hymn in thousands of churches worldwide. The famous chorus “Gloria in excelsis Deo” is Latin for “Glory to God in the highest”, the chorus of praise echoed by the angels who greeted the shepherds to announce the glorious birth of the King of kings.

Lyrics:

Angels we have heard on high 

Sweetly singing o’er the plains 

And the mountains in reply 

Echoing their joyous strains

Gloria, in excelsis Deo 

Gloria, in excelsis Deo

Shepherds, why this jubilee? 

Why your joyous strains prolong? 

What the gladsome tidings be 

Which inspire your heavenly song?

Gloria, in excelsis Deo 

Gloria, in excelsis Deo

Come to Bethlehem and see

Him whose birth the angels sing, 

Come, adore on bended knee, 

Christ the Lord, the newborn King

Gloria, in excelsis Deo 

Gloria, in excelsis Deo

Scripture: “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. Matthew 25:31

17. Christmas Hymns: Oh Holy Night

This is one of my very favorite Christmas hymns. When I think of the wonder of Christmas, the beauty of our Savior, and his great love for the world that he would come as a tiny baby and give his very life to save humanity, fills me with joy and gratitude.

May we all “fall on our knees” in humble adoration to our newborn King!

Lyrics:

O holy night the stars are brightly shining 

It is the night of our dear Saviour’s birth 

Long lay the world in sin and error pining 

Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth 

A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices 

For yonder breaks 

A new and glorious morn

Fall on your knees 

O hear the angel voices 

O night divine 

O night when Christ was born

Truly He taught us to love one another 

His law is love and His gospel is peace 

Chains He shall break 

For the slave is our brother

And in His Name All oppression shall cease 

Sweet hymns of joy 

In grateful chorus raise we 

Let all within us praise His holy Name

Christ is the Lord 

O praise His Name forever 

His power and glory 

Evermore proclaim 

His power and glory 

Evermore proclaim 

Scripture: Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:9-12
