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
'til he appeared
And the soul felt it's worth
A thrill of hope
The weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks
A new and glorious morn'
Fall on your knees
O 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 the light
Of a star sweetly gleaming
There came the wise men
From orient land
The king of kings lay
Thus in lowly manger
In all our trials
Born to be our friend
He knows our need
He guardeth us from danger
Behold your king
Before him lowly bend
Behold you king
Before him lowly bend
