O Holy Night Lyrics

O 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.
Till He appeared and the Spirit 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!
O night divine, the night when Christ was born;
O night, O Holy Night , O night divine!
O night, O Holy Night , O night divine!

Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand.
O'er the world a star is sweetly gleaming,
Now come the wisemen from out of the Orient land.
The King of kings lay thus lowly manger;
In all our trials born to be our friends.
He knows our need, 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 he shall break, for the slave is our brother.
And in his name all oppression shall cease.
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
With all our hearts we praise His holy name.
Christ is the Lord! Then ever, ever praise we,
His power and glory ever more proclaim!
His power and glory ever more proclaim!

foam said...

this is also my favorite christmas song ... or one of my favorites ..
i was trying to avoid christmas even though i just came from a children's christmas play.

celine has a good voice. and she dumped christmas right into my den.

i have never purchased any of her cds though. and probably never will.

Little Lamb said...

/t. It's a good song.

foam, It's one of my favorite songs too. I have a lot of favorites. I don't own anything of Celine's either. I do have this song in my collection, but I downloaded it.

A night with holes? I like when the krauts sing Holy Night, even singing carols they sound as though they are ready to kick France's ass...

Little Lamb said...

Phos, yes a night with holes.
Perhaps the Krauts are ready to kick some butt.

The Phosgene Kid said...

My favorite carol is "Three wise men came from afar, chewing on a rubber cigar" Not sure of the actual title of the song...

Little Lamb said...

That sounds cute.

carmen said...

i am with phos....

Jingle Bells
Batman Smells
Robin Laid an Egg
The Batmobile Lost a Wheel
And Joker got away

Jingle Bells
Batman Smells
Robin Laid an Egg
The Batmobile Lost a Wheel
And Jo-ker got away

[instrumental cymbals, pounding & stuff]

THE JOKER GOT AWAY!
THE JOKER GOT AWAY!

Little Lamb said...

That's cute.

/t. said...

Fall
on your knees,
Sinner

Hear the angel voices,
and repent

for yea, verily, i say unto thee, the judgement stone be upon thee

thou art toast, mirthful ones!

/t.

carmen said...

/t, hear the angel voices

and repeat...

/t. said...

fall
on your knees
at the
calling of weights
and the
judgement stones

we meet again

/t.

Little Lamb said...

/t. is on a rampage!

foam said...

any minute he's going to start speaking in tongues.

Little Lamb said...

Or talk so fast we can't understand him and claim he's speaking in tongues.

Ruela said...

I want to meet Celina

Little Lamb said...

Go for it, Ruela.

/t. said...

fall
on your stones
&
meet
the angels of mirth,
verily

/toast.

Little Lamb said...

/t. stop it! I'll have to post something else.

Ruela said...

do you have is phone number?

Little Lamb said...

Who's phone number?

/t. said...

do
you imagine
for a moment that
posting something else
might save you from your fate, LL?!?

at the calling of weights all fall to their knees before the judgement stone -- yea, verily, warily, and scarily -- she be truth, linty one

you might wish to post something for the season, though, and repent... perhaps, recipes that go well with mint jelly

/t.

Little Lamb said...

My fate is already sealed. I'm not worried about it. It's taken care of. It's a done deal.

Why post stuff that goes well with mint jelly? Have you ever had lamb with mint jelly? I have and to me the two don't go together.

Oh, maybe I can find something that does. Do you thimnk mint jelly is for the Christmas season?

/t. said...

well,
i will defer
to your judgement
about the lamb and mint jelly,
LL, but yes, i think lamb with or without jelly could make a nice change from the traditional christmas turkey

/t.

Little Lamb said...

How about a Christmas ham?

/t. said...

dicey...

:)

get it? diced ham...

ha ha ah aah ha ahahah ha hah aha ha hah aha hh ah aha ah aha hah ahahahah hahah aha hah aha hha hah aha haha hah ah aha h ah ahahaha hah ahahahha ah ha a ha ha!

ok, it wasn't really that funny

sure, ham could work -- maybe a hawaiian pizza (pineapple & ham)

i'm listening to leann rimes singing o holy night right now, LL -- she is an amazing singer -- the fall on your knees part always gets me... right... here

oh yeah, that's it!

well, the judgement stone awaits, LL... back to work

/t.

Ruela said...

Celine Dion number.

Little Lamb said...

/t. you're a trip.

Ruela, yes I do.

Ruela said...

give it to me...

Little Lamb said...

No.

Ruela said...

ok.
Doesn't matter.

Little Lamb said...

Why not?

Ruela said...

I have my Lambo Gallardo ;)

Little Lamb said...

Can you take me for a ride in it?

The Phosgene Kid said...

That angel can fall to her knees in front of this mirthful one anytime.

Little Lamb said...

Who? Celine?

Serena Joy said...

That's a beautiful song, one of my Christmas favorites.:)

Little Lamb said...

Yes it is, mine too.
