O Holy Night

SONG: Written by Placide Cappeau, with a melody by Adolphe Adam, “O Holy Night” is one of the most famous Christmas songs of all time.

O holy night! The stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of our dear Savior’s birth.
Long lay the world in sin and error pining,
‘Til He appear’d 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 divine, O night when Christ was born.

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.

Fall on your knees! O hear the angels’ voices!
O night divine, O night when Christ was born;
O night divine, O night when Christ was born.

Fall on your knees! O hear the angels’ voices!
O night divine, O night when Christ was born;
O night divine, O night when Christ was born.
