about

Symon Hajjar Tulsa

My music is a mix of hymns, whims, and contemplations that have come to me over the years as I have tried to honestly reflect on my own journey of belief and self realization. I hope that more than a few of them ring true with you too. Enjoy.

Track Name: Angels we have heard
Angels we have heard on high
Sweetly singing o’er the plains,
And the mountains in reply
Echoing their joyous strains

Gloria, in excelsis Deo
Gloria, in excelsis Deo

Shepherds, why this jubilee
Why your joyous strains prolong
What the gladsome tidings be
Which inspire your heav’nly song

Come to Bethlehem and see
Christ Whose birth the angels sing
Come, adore on bended knee,
Christ the Lord, the newborn King

See Him in a manger laid,
Whom the choirs of angels praise
Mary, Joseph, lend your aid,
While our hearts in love we raise
Track Name: O Christmas tree
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree
With faithful leaves unchanging
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree
With faithful leaves unchanging

Not only green in summers heat
But also winters snow and sleet
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree
With faithful leaves unchanging

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree
Of all the trees most lovely
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree
Of all the trees most lovely

Each year you bring to me delight
Gleaming in the Christmas night
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree
Of all the trees most lovely

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree
Your leaves they teach me also
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree
You leaves they teach me still
Of love and hope and faithfulness
All things that I long to possess
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree
Your leaves they teach me still

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree
How lovely are your branches
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree
How lovely are your branches

In summer sun or winter snow
A coat of green you always show
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree
How lovely are your branches
Track Name: Merry Christmas
He who looks for the King
must be willing to come to a cave
For the one who created all things
Has lowered Himself for our sake
Oh how can this be
The light of the world
in the arms of a girl

Merry Christmas
Everything’s different
A gift has been given, Mary’s son
Merry Christmas
God is here with us
A mother was found more spacious than all of the heavens

He who watches the stars
Has been shown a way out of the dark
For the light that once shined from afar
Has been born in the mother of God
Oh, angels descend
For the child in her arms
Holds the world in His hands
Come, see for yourself
The light from above has become one of us

Merry Christmas
Everything’s different
A gift has been given, Mary’s son
Merry Christmas
God is here with us
Our mother was found more spacious than all of the heavens

He who longs to be raised
Must first be sown into the grave
Where the lowest of us is made great
And the poorest are known by their names

Oh how can this be
The maker of stars
Is the god we now see

Merry Christmas
Everything’s different
A gift has been given, Mary’s son is born
Merry Christmas
God is here with us
Our mother was found more spacious than all of the heavens
Mary's son has come to us
Track Name: Christmas time
You and I
Sharing cider by the open fire
Warm inside
While the snow is falling right before our eyes
All our hopes turn into mistletoe everywhere

You and me
Hanging memories up on Christmas Eve
When suddenly we both remember that we still believe
All our dreams turn into Christmas trees everywhere

Every single year when the holidays come
Our hearts start beating ba rumpa bum bum
We sip a little wine with the spices mulled
and laugh about the ways that we still feel young
Laughter is a medicine
Laughter is a gift in the hearts of men
Magic is the world we're in
Magic is the moment you believe again
Oh I don't wanna say goodnight
I always want to feel like I do when it's christmas time

The Christmas lights shine so bright against the midnight sky
As I hold you tight, time stops moving for a little while
Maybe Christmas is whenever we're together
Maybe reindeer could really learn to fly
Oh, Christmas time

It happens every single year when the holidays come
Our hearts start beating ba rumpa bum bum
We sip a little wine with the spices mulled
and laugh about the ways that we still feel young
Laughter is a medicine
Laughter is a gift in the hearts of men
Magic is the world we're in
Magic is the moment you believe again
Oh I don't wanna say goodnight
I always want to feel like I do when it's christmas time
Track Name: Santa where have you been
Santa where have you been
I've been counting the days since you left
now the cold air is near and I'm ready to hear
your sleigh bells jingling again

Santa where have you been
I've had Christmas songs stuck in my head
Ever since last year
I've been hearing reindeer
click and clack on my rooftop
could blitzon and rudolph be dropping you off right now

I’m ready, I'm ready, I'm ready for Christmas

Santa are you almost here?
There’s not a lot of things I need this year
I know that you're a man with a lot on his plate
But if it isn't too much trouble I could sure use a date?

Santa clause where have you been
Didn’t you get the letters I sent
Well in case it's been missed
Let me tell you my wish
There's a girl that I'd sure like to kiss

I'm ready, I'm ready, I'm ready for that kiss

Santa are you almost here?
There’s not a lot of things I need this year
I know that you're a man with a lot on his plate
But if it isn't too much trouble could you get me a date?

Santa are you almost here
I've been a really good boy this year
I know I'm kinda callin in a favor this time
But if you'd help me with the kids I'll let the presents slide

Santa how did you know
That she'd fall for that 'ol mistletoe
Please give my regards to dear Mrs. Clause
I've a feeling that she played a part
Track Name: What child is this
What child is this, who, laid to rest,
On Mary's lap is sleeping?
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet,
While shepherds watch are keeping

This, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing
Haste, haste to bring Him laud,
The babe, the son of Mary

Why lies He in such mean estate,
Where ox and ass are feeding
The kings of earth and all their worth
Appear before him fleeting

This, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing
Haste, haste to bring Him laud,
The babe, the son of Mary

So bring him incense, gold, and myrrh,
Come, peasant, king, to own him.
The King of kings salvation brings,
Let loving hearts enthrone him

This, this is Christ the King,
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing
Haste, haste to bring Him laud,
The babe, the son of Mary

Raise, raise a song on high,
The virgin sings her lullaby
Joy, joy for Christ is born,
The babe, the Son of Mary.
Track Name: Nativity hymn
The virgin cometh today
To the cave to give birth
Ineffably to bring forth the King eternal
Hearing this may you rejoice
Oh inhabited world
With the angels and shepherds give glory to him
Whose own will it was to appear as a young child
He who is God from eternity
He who is God from eternity
Track Name: Still with us
I want to feel like it's Christmas
Everyday of the year
I want to know you're still with us
and more than just a holiday thrill
So come and be Christmas, come and be Christmas
You make it Christmas whenever you're here

I've got a gift that's worth giving
because hope is supposed to be shared
Oh I've got a reason for singing
and I want the whole world to hear
I want the world to hear that it's finally Christmas
It's finally Christmas, It's finally Christmas
Now that You're here

From the big city lights
To the cold winter nights
As the twilight lays still
on a snow covered hill
I know Christmas is finally here
Christmas has found its way here

I'm whiter than snow
I'm whiter than snow
I'm whiter than snow
I'm whiter than snow this year

From the big city lights
To that cold winter night
As the twilight laid still
There on Calvary's hill
We knew Christmas was finally here
Christmas had found a way here
Track Name: We three kings
We three kings of Orient are
Bearing gifts we traverse afar.
Field and fountain, moor and mountain,
Following yonder star.

O star of wonder, star of night,
Star of royal beauty bright,
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to thy perfect light.

Born a king on Bethlehem's plain,
Gold I bring to crown Him again,
King forever, ceasing never
Over us all to reign.

O star of wonder, star of night,
Star of royal beauty bright,
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to thy perfect light.
Track Name: Glory in the highest
Emmanuel, our God is with us
Jehovah, our God is alive
By your great love, you have redeemed us
Hosanna in the highest

Glory in the highest, in the highest, in highest
Glory in the highest, in the highest, in highest

Emmanuel, the light of the Father
Appearing in humble disguise
For all to see, you suffered among us
Messiah, we open our eyes

Glory in the highest, in the highest, in highest
Glory in the highest, in the highest, in highest

Messiah you've opened our eyes up
For the one who is greatest has come as a child
Hosanna, our prayers have been answered
Just as in the manger be born in our lives
