12/09/19 - NNHS Newsletter - Sing We All Noel

“Sing hey! Sing hey!
For Christmas Day;
Twine mistletoe and holly.
For a friendship glows
In winter snows,
And so let's all be jolly!”

- Author Unknown

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

   We've only used this lovely old French carol once before, and it was ten years ago, so let's have another look at it, and gaze again on this image of Notre Dame Cathedral at Christmastide.

FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 12/08/18:

Everyone knows I’m a stickler for good spelling. So when an associate e-mailed technical documents asking me to “decifer” them, I had to set him straight.

“Decipher is spelled with a ph, not an f,” I wrote. “In case you’ve forgotten, spell-checker comes free with your Microsoft program.”

A minute later came his reply, “Must be dephective.”


DATES TO REMEMBER:

1. Every Tuesday, 7:30 AM - Male grads meet at Angelo's Restaurant on J. Clyde Morris Boulevard for breakfast and camaraderie.

2. Wednesday, January 08, 2020 -The NNHS Class of June 1942 meets at noon on the second Wednesday of every other month for a Dutch treat lunch at the James River Country Club, 1500 Country Club Road.

 Sing We All Noel


Sing we all Noel, hear the music all around.
Sing we all Noel, let the joy resound.

Noel, noel, noel, let our voices rise
As we sing a song of praise and lift our music to the skies.
Noel, noel, noel, sing it loud and clear
so that all on earth may know our joy this season of the year.

Sing we all Noel, with a joyous rondelay.
Sing we all Noel, hear the news today.

Sing we all Noel, a joyous song of praise
To our God incarnate, exalt Him all our days

Sing we all Noel, the gladsome tidings bring
Lift our God on high as His praises now we sing.
Sing we all Noel, our hearts with love aflame
Praising Christ our Saviour, we bless His holy name.

Sing we all Noel, to Jesus Christ on high
For our sins He suffered, left Heaven's throne to die.

Sing we all Noel, with all our heart's great joy
In our Saviour's praises our song we now employ.
