Jesus Amazing


O Holy Night!
Behold the glorious light!
The stars are brightly shining,
The beauty, entrancing, so binding
It is the night of the dear Savior's birth.
For the love of mankind, His children, had worth
Long lay the world in sin and error pining.
The Fall made pure forever declining
Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth.
Praise God for Jesus' birth!
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
Raise your praising voices!
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
Our Savior is born!
Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices!
Singing, praising, all of them rejoices!
O night divine, oh night when Christ was born;
The world, no longer need be forlorn
O night, O Holy Night , O night divine!
Held close to my heart, this precious night is mine
O night, O Holy Night , O night divine!

Glorious night divine!
 
 
Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,
A star, through the sky, was beautifully streaming
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand.
To see this Babe, a gift, from God's hand
O'er the world the star is sweetly gleaming,
Hither ye wisemen, it seems to be deeming
Now come the wisemen from out of the Orient land.
Three gifts they have, so grand
The King of kings lay thus lowly manger;
Quietly gazing is He at loved ones, not danger
In all our trials born to be our friend.
Our broken souls, be willing, He mends
He knows our need, our weakness is no stranger,
That Babe laying sweetly in the manger
Behold your King! Before him lowly bend!
He can be your greatest friend
Behold your King! Before him lowly bend!
 
 
Truly He taught us to love one another,
His love for us spreads even further
His law is love and His gospel is peace.
From chains of hate He wishes to free us
Chains He shall break, for the slave is our brother.
The neighbor a friend, the servant our mother
And in his name all oppression shall cease.
All through the land spreads friendship and peace
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
Indebted to Him forever we'll be
With all our hearts we praise His holy name.
The world, oblivion, before He came
Christ is the Lord! Then ever, ever praise we,
His amazing love, you must, must see
His power and glory ever more proclaim!
Urchins and kings, all are the same
His power and glory ever more proclaim!

You, be willing, His child He names!
