O Holy Night

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
‘Till 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!
O hear the angels voices!
O night, divine O night, when Christ was born
O night, divine, O night, O night divine!

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
O night, divine, O night, O night divine!
