O Holy Night Gives True Meaning of Christmas

 The real meaning of Christmas.  Via the Free Republic.

Luke 2

The Birth of Jesus

  1. In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world.
  2. (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria.)
  3. And everyone went to his own town to register.
  4. So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David.
  5. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child.
  6. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born,
  7. and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

O Holy night, the stars are brightly shining.
It is the night of our dear Saviour’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 the angel voices!
Oh night divine! Oh night when Christ was born!
Oh night divine! Oh night! Oh night divine!

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, that ever, ever praise we.
Noel! Noel! Oh night;oh night divine!
Noel! Noel! Oh night; oh night divine!
Noel! Noel! Oh night; oh night divine!
