“Go Tell It On The Mountain” is a great gospel song we listened to growing up.
And in our Methodist Church we sing “ChristmasTide,” which is so beautiful and peaceful.

Wie schoen leuchtet der Morgenstern ("How Bright Appears the Morning Star")

“I Heard The Bells On Christmas Day” by H.W. Longfellow.
All the verses together tell a story, and I especially like this next-to-last verse:
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.”
