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
Till He Appear’d And The Soul Felt Its Worth
A Thrill Of Hope The Weary Soul Rejoices
For Yonder Breaks A New And Glorious Morn

Fall On Your Knees
Oh Hear The Angel Voices
Oh Night Divine
Oh Night When Christ Was Born
Oh Night Divine
Oh Night Divine

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

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
