Carol Sing – December 27, 2020

By December 7, 2020No Comments

Traditionally, at Pilgrim the Sunday after Christmas is an informal lay-led service in which the sermon is replaced by a Christmas Carol singalong.  People in the congregation call out their carol requests, I play them, and everyone joins in.  It gives us an opportunity to sing some of the favorite carols we never seem to get around to singing during the regular services.

This year things will be different!  I will ask people to send in their requests ahead of time, and Barbara and I will lead in singing them over Zoom, just as we did last summer during the August Zoom services.  It should be fun.

SO–please email me your requested carol at barbjim.munkres@gmail.com.  Do this by next Thursday, December 10, so I can make up the list and prepare for the singalong.  We may not be able to fulfill every request, but we will do our best.  To help jog your memory, you can find a list of favorite carols below.

Happy singing!
Jim Munkres

 

Familiar Carols:

Away in a manger

Angels we have heard on high

Angels from the realms of glory

Lo, how a rose e’er blooming

In the bleak midwinter

Good Christian friends, rejoice

It came upon the midnight clear

Joy to the world!

O little town of Bethlehem

Silent night, holy night

O come all you faithful

The first nowell

Hark! The herald angels sing

Go tell it on the mountain

On this day earth shall ring

We three kings of orient are

While shepherds watched their flocks

Let all mortal flesh keep silence

God rest you merry, gentlefolk
