Gloria: A Christmas Hymn Study

Every year the trees grow bare and the air breathes a misty frost. December sneaks in and Christmas Carols ring in our ears. As we approach this blessed season of our Savior’s birth, I couldn’t help but wonder what those lyrics really mean. Where did those beloved carols come from? And was there a beautiful story behind it all?

Of course, there is a beautiful journey behind the lyrics of old, the hymns that we cherish. And I want to share it with you!
Gloria: A Christmas Hymn Study. 92-pages of history, scripture and fun!

Gloria: A Christmas Hymn study is a 92-page collection of history, scripture and fun. In addition to the story behind the hymn, students are guided through a study of the meaning behind it and the scripture that shares the story of this wonderful event. Each hymn includes the music and lyrics for you to sing and learn, plus a Tin Whistle tablature. This fingering would work for any similar instrument, like a recorder. Of course, there are also copywork pages, coloring pages, word searches and other fun activities to go along with the hymns.

I have written this unit study with the older elementary student (3rd-5th grade) in mind. Should you so choose, this study can be done fairly independently. For younger students, simply work together allowing him/her to take control of any parts that can be handled independently. Of course, you may choose to do this study as a family and that would work perfectly as well!

Copywork is included for each hymn, both in KJV and ESV.

Hymns included:

O Come O Come Emmanuel

O Little Town of Bethlehem

Away in a Manger

Silent Night

Hark the Herald Angels Sing

Joy to the World

We Three Kings of Orient Are

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen


A Christmas Hymn Study, filled with the most beloved hymns and carols. You'll learn the beautiful journey behind the lyrics of old, the hymns that we cherish as you celebrate the birth of our savior.

    Really love the study-thank you for doing such an amazing job on it for the rest of us! Can you tell me where you found the art? Was it one source or did you find them from many sources? Curious, because I really enjoyed seeing them.

    • Kim Sorgius says:

      I’m so glad you love it! I got the art from wikipedia mostly. They are all old enough to be in the public domain. I did come across a site with something like “art about Jesus” or something like that. Sorry, but I can’t remember what it was!
