Christmas Songbook

O Holy Night

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 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 wisemen 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!
