Words & music: unknown

O 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 his worth

A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
For yonder beams 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, o night divine

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 in lowly manger
In all our trials born to be our friend
He knows our need, to our weakness is no stranger

Behold your king
Before the lowly bend
Behold 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 pow'r and glory ever more proclaim
His pow'r and glory ever more proclaim
