Lyrics

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 its 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

Led by the light of faith serenely beaming
With glowing hearts of by His cradle we stand
So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming
Here come the wise men from the Orient land
The King of Kings lay in lowly manger
In all our trials born to be our friend
He knows our need to our weakness no stranger
Behold your King before the lowly bend
Behold your King your King before Him 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 rise we
Let all within us praise His holy name
Christ is the Lord then ever ever praise we
His power and glory ever more proclaim
His power and glory ever more proclaim
