O Holy Night

I love the words to this Christmas carol it's my very favorit. The words have so much power to them and every time I hear this song I get goose bumps. When we sang it in church this past Sunday I read the words and as I sang, I was so humbled by the pure love my King has for me and for all.

 


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 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,

oh night divine, oh night when Christ was born.
Oh night divine, oh night when Christ was born.


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 Orientland.
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 shallcease.
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
let all within us praise His holy name.

Merry Christmas!
