Nancy, Here's the lyrics to the song "Sorry I Never Knew You".  There is a sound file on this website. 
http://hometown.aol.com/sweetfawn4jesus/Page2 ...

SORRY I NEVER KNEW YOU
Jim Ed Brown


1ST VERSE
LAST NIGHT AS I LAY SLEEPING A DREAM CAME TO ME
I DREAMED ABOUT THE END OF TIME, ABOUT ENTERNITY.
I SAW A MILLION SINNERS FALL ON THEIR KNEES TO PRAY
THE LORD HE SADLY SHOOK HIS HEAD AND THIS I HEARD
HIM SAY.

CHORUS
SORRY I NEVER KNEW YOU,I FIND NO RECORD OF YOUR BIRTH
SORRY I NEVER KNEW YOU GO AND SERVE THE ONE THAT YOU HAVE
SERVED BEFORE.

2ND VERSE
I THOUGHT THE TIME HAD FULLY COME WHEN I COULD STAND
A THRIVE,I TOLD THE LORD THAT I HAD BEEN A CHRISTIAN
ALL THE WHILE,SO THRU HIS BOOK ,HE TOOK A LOOK,AND
SADLY SHOOK HIS HEAD.THEN HE PLACED ME OVER ON HIS LEFT
AND THIS I HEARD HIM SAY..

CHORUS
SORRY I NEVER KNEW YOU,I FIND NO RECORD OF YOUR BIRTH,
SORRY I NEVER KNEW YOU,GO AND SERVE THE ONE THAT YOU
SERVED DOWN ON EARTH.

3RD VERSE
THERE WERE MY WIFE AND CHILDREN, I HEARD THEIR LOVING VOICE,
THEY MUST HAVE BEEN SO HAPPY OH HOW THEY DID REJOICE,THEIR
ROBES OF WHITE AROUND THEM, THEIR FACES ALL AGLOW,MY LITTLE
GIRL LOOKED OVER AT ME AND THIS I HEARD HER SAY...

CHOURS

DADDY WE CAN'T GO WITH YOU,WE MUST DWELL IN THE JOY OF OUR
LORD,SORRY FOR WE STILL LOVE YOU,BUT YOU'LL NEVER BE OUR DADDY ANYMORE.

4TH VERSE
NOW WHEN I HAD AWAKENED , THE TEARS WERE IN MY EYES,AND LOOKING ALL AROUND
ME, AND THERE TO MY SURPRISE THERE WERE MY LOVING BABIES I KNEW IT WAS A
DREAM AND DOWN BESIDE THAT BED OF MINE
YOU SHOULD HAVE HEARD ME SCREAM..

CHOURS
FATHER WHICH ART IN HEAVEN , I KNOW THOU GAVE THINE ONLY
SON, FATHER PLEASE FORGIVE ME, FOR I WANT TO BE READY WHEN
YOU COME

Come on, Ring Those Bells
Words and Music by Andrew Culverwell
Everybody likes to take a holiday
Everybody likes to take a rest
Spending time together with the family
Sharing lots of love and happiness.
Come on, ring those bells,
Light the Christmas tree,
Jesus is the king
Born for you and me.
Come on, ring those bells,
Every-body say,
Jesus, we remember
This your birthday.
Celebrations come because of something good.
Celebrations we love to recall
Mary had a baby boy in Bethleham
the greatest celebration of all.
Come on, ring those bells,
Light the Christmas tree,
Jesus is the King
Born for you and me.
Come on, ring those bells,
Every-body say,
Jesus, we remember
This your birthday.

I also have the sheet music. I can make a pdf and send it to anyone who wants it.

NO ROOM

No room, only a manager of hay
No room, He is a stranger today
No room, here in His world turned way
No room, no room

No room, here in the hearts of mankind
No room, no cheery welcome could find
No room, surely the world is blind
No room, no room

No room, only a manger of hay
No room, He is a stranger today
No room, here in His world turned away
No room, No room

Chorus:
No room
Angels, in heaven up yonder
Watch with amazement and wonder
To see the Son of the Highest treated so
No room, no room, no room

John W. Peterson

I HAVE A PDF OF THE SHEET MUSIC, BUT IT'S BLURRY. I'LL BE HAPPY TO SEND IT TO ANYONE WHO WANTS IT. I AM LOOKING FOR SOME OF THE OTHER REQUESTS ON THIS SITE.

SOME CHILDREN SEE HIM

Some children see Him lily white,
The Baby Jesus born this night,
Some children see Him lily white,
With tresses soft and fair.

Some children see Him bronzed and brown,
The Lord of heav'n to earth come down;
Some children see Him bronzed and brown,
With dark and heavy hair.

Some children see Him almond-eyed,
This Savior whom we kneel beside,
Some children see Him almond-eyed,
With skin of yellow hue.

Some children see Him dark as they,
Sweet Mary's Son to whom we pray,
Some children see Him dark as they,
And, ah! they love Him, too!

The children in each diff'rent place
Will see the Baby Jesus' face
Like theirs, but bright with heav'nly grace,
And filled with holy light.

O lay aside each earthly thing,
And with thy heart as offering,
Come worship now the Infant King.
'Tis love that's born tonight!

I'M STILL LOOKING FOR THE SHEET MUSIC FOR THIS.

Praise the Lord for providing!! Evie sang "No Room", as a medley along with "Have You Any Room For Jesus?".  I could not find the lyrics to "No Room"  until discovering this site. 
Plan to teach it to my Sunday School class.
God Bless!

Happy Birthday Jesus

"Ring the Bells", words and music by Harry Bollback, is available at several sites online.  I found you have to type more than just the title to find the sites.

Hi -
I, too, sang the Night of Miracles Cantata as a much younger person.  Is there any way to get a copy of the entire cantata?  It is too beautiful to loose.  Please email at ahewitt202@aol.com.  Thanks, Angie

Hi,

I am looking for a cantata by John W. Peterson which contained the song "Where is He?"  It is not The Night the Angels sang or Born a King.  It started out I think with a solo of the scripture:
Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem
Of Judea
In the days of Herod the King
Behold there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem
saying
(and here it broke into a powerful men's trio I think)
Where is He
The precious new born King
Our finest gifts we bring
With which to crown Him
Our Lord and Savior
(Then I think it went back to a solo with more of the scripture, but I don't remember.)

Anyone know which cantata it was in?  If I can get the name of the Cantata, supposedly I can get a copy from Young's Music on the web who specializes in used and out of print choral sheet music.

Dear Burbank Past,

I too am interested in any and all of the cantata Night of Miracles by John W. Petersen that you have converted to CD.  My choir has acquired several copies of the cantata, but I would love to have the music to help with practice and just to listen!

Thanks
Barbara

I'm looking for a site where I can listen to "That First Christmas" by Thos. C. Wallace. I can't seem to find it anywhere on the web. Can anyone help? I have a copy of the piano music, but I play mostly by ear and would like to hear it.
Thanks.

We are looking for the lyrics to a song.  Not sure the title but one line of the refrain is,

Even if he'd never done a single mirace, Jesus would have still been God.

I am looking for the words and music to a song that began: "there were sounds of weary feet, in the winter snow, going up the stoney street, of Bethlehem long ago.  Has anyone heard of it?  How does the rest go, and what is it called?
Posted:  15 Jan 2007 04:08
Thanks Guest. I sang one of the solos for the Night of Miracles in the late 60's and somehow the cantata stuck in my memories. I have been looking for the sheet copies particularly of the songs "No Room," "Sleep Holy Child" and "Go and Search Diligently." Where can I get a copy of the above? I would also appreciate getting info on where to get a copy of the entire cantata piece? My e-mail is
