English.png English text

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,
’Til 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 Gloria, in excelsis deo,
Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree!

Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,
With glowing hearts by his cradle we stand.
Deck the halls with boughs of holly, Fa la la…
O’er all the world a star is sweetly gleaming,
Now come the wisemen from Orient land.
’Tis the season to be jolly, Fa la la…
The king of kings lay thus in lowly manger,
In all our trials born to be our friend.
Don we now our gay apparel, Fa la la…
Troll the ancient yuletide carol, Fa la la…

Fall on your knees,
Oh hear the angel voices!
Oh night divine,
Oh night when Christ was born!
Oh night divine!
Cha cha cha!
