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 it's worth.
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a news 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.
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 raise we,
With all our hearts we praise His holy name.
Fall on your knees! etc.
