Track Name: When Christmas Day is Near
Three berries white and gold
Hang tight to the mistletoe
Oh a single kiss for a Christmas wish
Does make for a joyful soul!

Three stockings red and white
Hang tight to the fireside
All filled to the brim of the golden trim
In the mid of a Christmas night

When Christmas Day is near
When Christmas Day is near
Tis true delight to prepare for the night
When Christmas Day is near

Three children bright and young
All to their bedrooms run
With a carrot and a pie and a glass filled high
In the hope Saint Nic will come
Three candles light their way
To their bedrooms go to pray
To be thankful for all they have in store
And remember those away

One heavenly star shines bright
One world under one sky
Will all rejoice in united voice
For the new year to come by
Track Name: William Frend
Oh sweet William Frend,
Who can condemn? When,
Oh sweet William Frend,
We stand as equal men?

Oh as equal men,
Oh as equal men,
Oh as equal men!

And oh sweet William Frend,
They’ll not condemn when
They all glorious rise again
And stand as equal men!

Oh as equal men,
Oh as equal men,
Oh as equal men!

Rise and stand for liberty,
Applause will sound in the balcony,
So rise and stand for liberty,
Applause will sound in the balcony,
So rise and stand for liberty of men!

Oh sweet William Frend,
Who can condemn? When,
Oh sweet William Frend,
We stand as equal men!

Oh as equal men,
Oh as equal men,
Oh as equal men!

So rise and stand for liberty,
Applause will sound in the balcony,
So rise and stand for liberty,
Applause will sound in the balcony,
So rise and stand for liberty of men!
Track Name: Solidarity
Oh I will for all solidarity, oh I will for equality of men.
Oh I will for freedom; for all to be even, oh I will for all wars to end.
