Come, O Long-Expected Jesus


Come O long-expected Jesus, born to set your people free.

From our fears and sins release us; Christ, in whom our rest shall be.

You, our strength and consolation, come salvation to impart;

Dear desire of many a nation, joy of many a longing heart.


Born your people to deliver, born a child, and yet a king,

Born to reign in us forever, born your gracious realm to bring.

By your own eternal spirit rule in all our hearts alone,

By your all sufficient merit, raise us to your glorious throne.


Hark, the Herald Angels Sing


Hark the herald angels sing, “Glory to the newborn King!

Peace on earth and mercy mild, God and sinners reconciled”

Joyful, all ye nations rise, join the triumph of the skies

With the angelic hosts proclaim: “Christ is born in Bethlehem”

Hark! The herald angels sing, “Glory to the newborn King!”


Christ by highest heaven adored, Christ the everlasting Lord!

Late in time behold Him come, offspring of a Virgin’s womb

Veiled in flesh, the Godhead see, hail the incarnate Deity

Pleased as man with man to dwell, Jesus our Emanuel

Hark! the herald angels sing, “Glory to the newborn King!”


Hail the heaven born Prince of Peace! Hail the Son of Righteousness!

Light and life to all He brings risen with healing in His wings

Mild He lays his glory by, born that man no more may die

Born to raise the sons of earth, born to give them second birth

Hark! The herald angels sing, “Glory to the newborn King!”


O Little Town of Bethlehem


O little town of Bethlehem, how still we see thee lie

Above thy deep and dreamless sleep the silent stars go by.

Yet in thy dark streets shiners the everlasting Light;

The hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight.


For Christ is born of Mary, and gathered all above

While mortals sleep, the angels keep their watch of wondering love.

O morning stars together proclaim the holy birth

Your voices raise to God in praise; and peace to all on earth

O holy Child of Bethlehem, descend to us, we pray:

Cast out our sin and enter in; be born in us today.

We hear the Christmas angels the great glad tidings tell;

O come to us, abide with us, our God, Emmanuel.


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

Till he appeared and the soul felt it’s worth.


A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices,

For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.

Fall on your knees! O hear the angel voices!

O night divine, O night when Christ was born.


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,

With all our hearts we praise His holy name.

Christ is the Lord! O praise His name forever,

His power and glory evermore proclaim!


Fall on your knees! O hear the angel voices!

O night divine, O night when Christ was born,

O night divine, O night, O night divine!
