"O HOLY NIGHT"

Intro: Ah ah ah ah
Verse 1
O holy night! The stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of our dear Savior's birth;
Long lay the world in sin and sorrow pining,
'Til He appeared and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope, the weary soul rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn';

Chorus 1
Fall on your knees, oh, hear the angels' voices!
O ni-ght divine,
O night when Christ was born!
O ni-ght di vine,
O ni-ght when Christ was born!

Verse 2
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 sing we,
Let all within us praise His holy name.

Chorus 2
Christ is the Lord, oh, praise His name forever!
His power and glory evermore proclaim!
His power and glory evermore proclaim!

Chorus 3
Fall on your knees, oh, hear the angels' voices!
O ni-ght divine,
O night when Christ was born!
O ni-ght divine,
O night when Christ was born! [O holy night...]
O ni-ght divi-ne,
O night when Christ was born!

-Ah ah ah ah, ooh
