lyrics

O Holy night
The stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear Saviour's birth
Long lay the world
In sin and error pining
'Til He appeared
And the soul felt its worth

A thrill of hope
The weary soul rejoices
For yonder breaks
A new and glorious morn

Fall on your knees
O hear the angel voices
O night divine
O night when Christ was born
O night divine
O night
O night divine

Washed by the light
Of faith serenely beaming
With glowing hearts
By His cradle we stand
So led by light
Of a star sweetly gleaming
There came the wise men
From Orient land

The King of kings
Lay thus in lowly manger
In all our trials
Born to be our friend

He knows our need
To our weakness is no stranger
Behold your King
Before Him lowly bend
Behold your King
Before Him lowly bend

Truly He taught us
To love one another
His law is love
And His gospel is peace
Chains shall He break
For the slave is our brother
And in His name
All oppression shall cease

Sweet hymns of joy
In grateful chorus raise we
Let all within us
Bless His Holy name

Christ is the Lord
O bless His name forever
Glory to God
In the highest forever
O night
O holy night
O night
O night divine

Fall on your knees
O hear the angel voices
Night divine
O night
When Christ was born.
