O holy night (Minuit chrétien) Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Oh 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 appear'd and the soul felt its worth
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn
Verse 2
Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices
Oh night divine, Oh night when Christ was born
Oh night divine, Oh night, Oh night Divine
Verse 3
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 come the wise men from Orient land
The King of Kings lay thus in lowly manger
In all our trials born to be our friend
Verse 4
He knows our need, to our weakness is no stranger
Behold your King! Before Him lowly bend!
Behold your King, Behold your King
Verse 5
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
Verse 6
Christ is the Lord! O praise His Name forever
His power and glory evermore proclaim
His power and glory evermore proclaim
