O HOLY NIGHT
1. O holy night, the stars are brightly shining, It is the night of the dear Savior’s birth;
Long lay the world in sin and error pining, Till He appeared and the soul felt it’s worth. A thrill of hope the weary soul 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.
2. Led by the light of Faith serenely beaming With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming Here come 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, our weakness is no stranger; Behold your King! Before Him lowly bend! Behold your King! Before Him lowly bend!
3. 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 praise His holy name.
Christ is the Lord, O praise His name forever! His pow’r and glory evermore proclaim!
His pow’r and glory evermore proclaim!
