O Holy Night

Posted on Updated on

In honor of Jesus Christ, the reason for the season, this week’s Poetry Tuesday feature is “O Holy Night” I have many favorite songs, both Christmas and non Christmas, but his one would rank high on the either list regardless of whether it is considered a Christmas song of not. Oh what a night when our savior was born. Truly a holy night. Some of the lyrics in this song move me to tears. Fall on your knees, Chains shall he break, O night divine. Such powerful words. I wish you all a Very Merry Christmas. Be blessed my friends.

O Holy Night

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 world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn;

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

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 came the wise men from Orient land.
The King of kings lay thus in lowly manger,
In all our trials born to be our Friend;
He knows our need, To our weakness is no stranger.
Behold your King, before Him lowly bend!
Behold your King, before Him lowly bend!

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 within us praise His holy name;

Christ is the Lord
Oh, praise His name forever!
His pow’r and glory evermore proclaim!
His pow’r and glory evermore proclaim!

Noel, noel, noel.
Oh night, oh night divine.
