"O Holy Night" as written by Jon Cohen, Adolphe Charles Adam and John Sullivan Dwight....
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 error 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

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

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 rise we
Let all within us praise His holy name

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

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

    General CommentO 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 soul rejoices,
    For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
    Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices!
    O night divine, O night when Christ was born;
    O night divine, O night, O night divine!

    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 with in us praise His holy name.
    Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices!
    O night divine, O night when Christ was born;
    O night divine, O night, O night divine!

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