(traditional)O holy night, the stars are brightly shiningIt is the night of the dear saviour’s birthLong lay the world in sin and error piningTill he appeared and the soul felt it’s worthA thrill of hope, the weary world rejoicesFor yonder beams a new and glorious mornFall on your kneesOh, hear the angel voicesO night divine, o night when christ was bornO night divine, o night, o night divineTruly he taught us to love one anotherHis law is love and his gospel is peaceChains shall he break, for the slave is our brotherAnd in his name all oppression shall ceaseSweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise meLet all within us praise his holy nameChrist is the lordThen ever, we will praise theeO night divine! o night when christ was bornO night divine! o night, o night divine
