Mormon Tabernacle Choir – O Holy Night lyrics

O holy night, the stars are brightly shining
It is the night of the dear Savior's birth
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Till He appeared and the Spirit 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
O night divine, the night when Christ was born

O night, o holy night, o night divine
O night, o holy night, o night divine

Led by the light of faith serenely beaming
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand
O'er the world a star is sweetly gleaming
Now come the wise men from out of the Orient land

The King of kings lay thus lowly manger
In all our trials born to be our friends
He knows our need, our weakness is 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 shall 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, then ever, ever praise we
His power and glory ever more proclaim
His power and glory ever more proclaim

    This song calls us to worship Jesus Christ, the Lord and Saviour of this world. His birth that Holy Night some 2000 years ago, not only divided Time in human history, but also marked the dawn of hope for every human being on planet Earth. Lost in sin and sadness, bound by death, when we accept Christ as our Lord and Saviour, we have the gift of eternal life through faith by His grace. We fall on bended knee because Jesus Christ is God Incarnate, the Creator of all things, who alone is worthy of our worship and praise. We, like the shepherds, wise men and kings of ages past, are the beloved children of God and rejoice at His birth - the First Advent - knowing that one day soon He will return - the Second Advent -- as King of kings and Lord of lords to make all things new, just as the Holy Bible tells us.
