    "Mary, Did You Know" is most certainly my favorite and tugs at my heart strings every single time I hear it.

    "The Christmas Song" by Nat King Cole runs a close second

    And then of course there is "Silent Night"

    "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day" is an absolutely beautiful Christmas song.
    I also love "Mary Did You Know" and "O Holy Night"
    There are so many beautiful Christmas songs it is hard to narrow it down!

    I'm simply going to second other comments...   Mary, Did You Know?  is right up there at the top, as well as O Holy Night, and Silent Night...   

    Maybe it's a sign of my being over half my allotted years in age, but I am dismayed at the horrible "remakes" of many of the songs by current pop musicians, who apparently have no skill or respect for the music that they think they can "improve" upon with their "flavoring".   Many of the current renditions of classic Christmas songs are abominations to fine music.   Fortunately, most of them are played one season and the album promptly is relegated to the "dust collector" status, though every year, a new crop of awfulness appears to take their place.

    John Lennon - Happy Xmas (War is Over). Beautiful and powerful!

    Handel's Messiah "Hallelujah Chorus"
    The whole album is a homage to the first advent of Christ
    Absolutely awe-inspiring, tear jerking and takes my breath away

    Christmas French Carol: Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silent

    Christmas Worship Song: Mary Did You Know?

    Christmas Carol: Do You Hear What I Hear?

    Christmas Hymn: Come Thou Long Expected Jesus

    Okay I know these are not the usual Christmas songs, but listen to the words and you will know why they are so beautiful

    "Oh Holy Night" sung by a young girl at a Christmas Eve service I once attended.

    I love them all, modern music wise, I'd have to say "Where Are You Christmas?" by Faith Hill.   However, Josh Groban singing "O Holy Night" gets me everytime too.

    I would have to say that "Christmas Eve in Sarajezo" by the TranSiberian Orchestra is one of the most beautiful Christmas "songs" I've ever heard. Ok, its music there are no lyrics, but beautiful electric guitars make up for it.

    'O holy night' by  Martina Mcbride is one of my all-time favorites....for a hip tune of little drummer boy, I like Bob Segers.
    Bing Crosby singing White Christmas is also hard to beat.

    The Little Drummer Boy (traditional)

    War is Over by Lennon. I was in high school when this came out and sick of WAR!

    Also, O Holy Night...

    and more recently: anything by Mannheim Steamroller.

    I like traditional acoustic guitar arrangements for "Greensleeves," or "What Child Is This?"  Those tunes are the same song.

    It's late September and Christmas stuff is in the store...and then I ran upon this question.
    Have to ditto the many named beautiful and traditional choices...but would like to add another to the list.
    It is a beautiful original piano/orchestral arrangement of the title song of
    "Christmas By the Fire", by George Skramstad of Crossings Church in Oklahoma City. It is a heart-warming, soul-touching rendition of George's expression of love for his wife Patricia. There are no words!:  Only the stroking fingers of this gentleman upon the notes of music sent with Love to his companion!

    "Little Drummer Boy" with David Bowie and Bing Crosby together.

    "Oh holy Night" as only Donny Osmond can sing it.  Others have tried, but Donny nails it!

    The First Noel.  What a stirring, soulful song.  It brings me to tears. The Merry Christmas Song by King Cole, another beautiful song.

    I would put The Christmas Song on the list (especially the original 1946 single) and Someday At Christmas by Stevie Wonder at the top of the beautiful Christmas songs I've heard.
