Sing to the tune of “Jingle Bells”

Christmas bells,
Christmas bells,
ring, ring, ring today.
Ring out news
that Christmas means
it’s Jesus Christ’s birthday - ay!

Celebrate,
celebrate,
have a party too.
For Jesus Christ
was born Christmas
to give life to me and you!

Here’s a stable, safe and strong (hold up stable)

Here’s a mother with her song (hold up Mary)

Here’s a father with his prayer (hold up Joseph)

Here are shepherds and sheep for which they care (hold up shepherd and sheep)

Here’s a manger (hold up the manger)

Here’s a star (hold up a star)

Here are wise men from afar (hold up three wise men)

Here’s a baby (hold up Jesus)

Here’s a dove (hold up dove)

Here’s a picture of God’s love!  (everyone says this line as they hold up their nativity piece)
