This 5-song EP includes four well-known carols, each covered in Shimona's own eclectic, heart-warming style; and one special acapella song, the title track, written and arranged by Shimona.

"Christmas music has always had a special place in my heart. There’s something about the arrangements and chord structures that one easily associates with that warm feeling you get at Christmas. This Christmas, thanks to the support, belief, and unfailing love from family and friends, I am finally able to release my first ever album!

I am in awe at how God has opened doors and directed me throughout the very quick production of this EP. Simple thanks is not enough - I am overwhelmed by His providence.

Finally, many thanks to YOU WHO HAVE BOUGHT MY DEBUT EP! In this age of digital-piracy, I cannot express how grateful I am that you chose to support my music by purchasing this CD! :) May His blessings be on you & your loved ones this festive season.

Love, ~ Shimona."

Track Name: O Come O Come Emmanuel
LYRICS:
O come, O come, Emmanuel
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel.
Track Name: Christmas Lights
LYRICS:
In the streets there are thousands of twinkling lights
that go up just once every year
as we stroll down the boulevard carollers sing
over bustling traffic we hear

"Alleluia the Christ, Son-of God is born
Alleluia we've waited so long.
Alleluia the Christ, Son-of-God has come
and the whole world rejoices in song"

And the child whose little hand clenched tightly in mine
turned to me, burning question in eye
"who is this Christ? and what are they singing for?"
so I told her the story and why

See the Christmas lights?
Look at how they shine, just like
Jesus Christ, the Light of the World
who came to shine at Christmas.
For God the Father so loved the world
He gave his only Son
- Jesus Christ came to die for us all
so we might live...

"Alleluia the Christ, Son-of God is born
Alleluia we've waited so long.
Alleluia the Christ, Son-of-God has come
and the whole world rejoices in song"
Track Name: God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen
LYRICS:
O tidings, O tidings....

God rest ye merry gentlemenLet nothing you dismay
Remember Christ our Savior
Was born on christmas day
To save us all from satan’s power
When we were gone astray
Oh tidings..

From God our heavenly father
The blessed angel came
And unto certain shepherds
Brought tidings of the same
How that in bethlehem was born
The son of God by name
Oh tidings, O tidings...

Comfort and Joy
the angels sing of Jesus Christ the light
Comfort and joy
the angels sing of Jesus Christ the light
O tidings, o tidings, comfort & joy

Fear not said the angel
Let nothing you affright
This day is born a savior
Of the pure virgin bright
To free all those who trust in him
From satan’s power and might
Oh tidings...

And when they came to bethlehem
Where our dear Savior lay
They found him in the manger
Where oxen feed on hay
His mother mary kneeled down
And to the lord did pray
Oh tidings, O tidings...

Comfort and Joy
the angels sing of Jesus Christ the light
Comfort and joy
the angels sing of Jesus Christ the light
O tidings, o tidings,
comfort & joy
comfort & joy,
comfort & joy
God rest ye merry gentlemen
let nothing you dismay.
Track Name: It Came Upon a Midnight Clear
LYRICS:
It came upon the midnight clear,

That glorious song of old,

From angels bending near the earth,

To touch their harps of gold:

"Peace on the earth,
goodwill to men

From heavens all gracious King!
"
The world in solemn stillness lay

To hear the angels sing.



O ye beneath life's crushing load,

Whose forms are bending low,

Who toil along the climbing way

With painful steps and slow;

Look now, for glad and golden hours

Come swiftly on the wing;

Oh rest beside the weary road

And hear the angels sing.



For lo! the days are hastening on,

By prophets seen of old,

When with the ever-circling years

Shall come the time foretold,

When peace shall over all the earth

and ancient splendors fling

And the whole world send back the song

Which now the angels sing.
Track Name: Away in a Manger
LYRICS:
Away in a manger,
No crib for a bed
The little Lord Jesus
Laid down His sweet head

The stars in the bright sky
Looked down where He lay
The little Lord Jesus
Asleep on the hay

The cattle are lowing
The Baby awakes
But little Lord Jesus
No crying He makes

I love Thee, Lord Jesus
Look down from the sky
And stay by my cradle,
'Til morning is nigh.

Be near me, Lord Jesus,
I ask Thee to stay
Close by me forever
And love me I pray

Bless all the dear children
In Thy tender care
And take us to heaven
To live with Thee there
