It came upon the midnight clear
That glorious song of all
From angels bending near the earth
To touch their hearts of gold

Peace on earth, good will to men
From heaven's all glorious King
The world in solemn stillness lay
To hear the angels sing

Oh holy night, the stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our 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, oh the angel voices
Oh night divine, oh night when Christ was born
Oh night divine, oh night divine
