1 I’m not sure caroling is such a good idea. We’re not the greatest singers.

Yeah, what if we hit a sour note and hurt somebody’s eardrums?

2 Who’s listening for sour notes? Every voice is an angel’s voice at Christmastime.

3 “Hark! the herald angels sing

Glory to the newborn King!

Peace on earth and mercy mild,

God and sinners reconciled!”

4 “Away in a manger, no crib for his bed,

The little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head;

The stars in the heavens looked down where he lay,

The little Lord Jesus, asleep on the hay.”

5 Please come inside and have some refreshments.

6 You sang like angels!
