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 its worth

A thrill of hope
The weary soul 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
O holy 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,
Let all within us praise his holy name.

Christ is the Lord
O praise his name forever
His pow'r and glory ever more proclaim
His pow'r and glory ever more proclaim

O night divine
O night, when Christ was born
O night
O holy night
O night divine
