People have been carol-singing or performing plays like Mystery Plays outside for hundreds of years. Here are some Carols for street people that have had street folk singing along with me. Carol-singing is a socially acceptable way to worship Jesus outside, and can touch people’s hearts. Carols contain poignant lyrics for folks on the street, especially as temperatures plummet:

“Snow had fallen, snow on snow, snow on snow.” (In the Bleak Midwinter)

“Though the frost was cruel, a poor man came in sight, gathering winter fuel.” (Good King Wenceslas)

What can I give him, poor as I am? … What can I give him? Give my heart.” (In the Bleak Midwinter)

“Ye who now will bless the poor, shall yourselves find blessing.” (Good King Wenceslas)

You might want to avoid singing “Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow” in case your prayer is answered!
