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. ‘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! Oh, hear the angel voices! Oh night divine,
oh night when Christ was born; O night divine, O night, oh night divine!
Led by the light of faith serenely beaming, with glowing hearts by His cradle we
stand. Over the world a star is sweetly gleaming, leading the wise men from Orient
lands. The King of kings lay thus lowly manger; in all our trials born to be our
friend. He knows our need, to our weakness 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 he will break, for the slave is our brother and in his name all oppression
shall cease. Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we, with all our hearts
we praise His holy name. Christ is the Lord! For ever now we praise him, His power
and glory ever more proclaim!
