O Holy Night - Lyrics
Midnight, Christians, is the solemn hour,
When God as man descended unto us,
To erase the stain of original sin,
And to end the wrath of His Father.
The entire world thrills with hope,
On this night that gives it a Saviour.

People, kneel down, await your deliverance.
Christmas, Christmas, here is the Redeemer, Christmas, Christmas, here is the Redeemer!

May the ardent light of our Faith,
Guide us all to the cradle of the infant,
As in ancient times a brilliant star,
Guided the Oriental kings there.
The King of Kings was born in a humble manger,
O mighty ones of today, proud of your greatness.
 
It is to your pride that God preaches.
Bow your heads before the Redeemer!
Bow your heads before the Redeemer!

The Redeemer has broken every bond,
The Earth is free, and Heaven is open.
He sees a brother where there was only a slave,
Love unites those that iron had chained.
Who will tell Him of our gratitude,
For all of us He is born, He suffers and dies.

People, stand up! Sing of your deliverance,
Christmas, Christmas, sing of the Redeemer, Christmas, Christmas, sing of the Redeemer!
