Christmas Circle

O Holy Night, the stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our 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 world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn
Fall on your knees! Oh, 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 love for one another
His law is love and His gospel is peace
Chains shall He break, the slave is now our brother
And in His name all oppression shall cease
Bold hymns of joy we raise in grateful chorus
With all our hearts we praise His holy name
Christ is the Lord! Oh, praise His name forever!
His power and glory evermore proclaim!
O night divine! O night, O night divine!
