O Holy Night (Heilige Nacht in der der Herr geboren)

1) 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
'Til He appeared and the soul felt its worth
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn
Fall on your knees O hear the angels' voices
O night divine O night when Christ was born
O night O holy night O night divine

2) Led by the light of faith serenely beaming
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand
So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming
Here came the wise men from Orient land
The King of kings lay thus in lowly manger
In all our trials born to be our friend
He knows our need to our weakness is no stranger
Behold your King before Him lowly bend
Behold your King before Him lowly bend

3) 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 for ever
His power and glory evermore proclaim
His power and glory evermore proclaim
