Oh Holy Night


O holy night! The stars are brightly shining
It is the night of the dear Saviors birth

Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Till He appeared and the soul felt it抯 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 divine, O night - when Christ was born

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 came the wise men from the Orient land

The King of Kings lay thus 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 Him lowly bend
Behold your King, your King, before Him lowly 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 raise we.
Let all within us praise His holy Name

Christ is the Lord, then ever, ever praise we
His pow抮 and glory evermore proclaim
His pow抮 and glory evermore proclaim
