O Holy Night

Oh holy night, the stars are brightly shining.
It is the night of the 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 world rejoices!
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.

Fall on your knees,
Oh hear the angel voices!
O night divine, o night when Christ was born.
O night, o holy night, o night divine.

Truly He taught us to love one another.
His law is love and His gospel I peace.
Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother.
And in His name all oppresions shall cease.
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise me,
Let all within us praise his Holy name.

Christ is the Lord, o praise His name forever,
His power and glory evermore proclaim,
His power and glory evermore proclaim,
Glory procalim.
