How to use the Free Christmas-eve / Christmas Day song-sheet

Simply open and print this sheet, and sing from it - no preparation is required!

But you are welcome to adapt it:
  • The pages are designed to be printed back to back.

  • There is a season-heading at the top of the page.  You could change this to show your own logo or church-name.
  • For one-off use, print it on paper.   For a longer-lasting resource, print on lightweight card, or be laminate the pages.
  • Change the hymns which are included:   
    The PDF version give you a file that prints exactly as it looks on screen. 
    The  Microsoft Word version can be edited.  The only request -  if you add any hymns that are not public-domain (eg because your church / school etc has permission to make copies), then please remove the page-footer.
