On Christmas night all Christians sing,
to hear the news the angels bring. (repeat)
News of great joy, cause of great mirth,
News of our great Redeemer’s birth.
The kings of angels and of men,
the king of kings of earth and heaven. (repeat)
Angels and men with joy may sing,
To hear and bless the new-born King.
Angels and men sing in the air,
for none their ruin can repair. (repeat)
And prisoners in their chains rejoice,
To hear the echo of their voice.
And now on earth shall men be sad,
our saviour comes to make us glad (repeat)
From sin and ill to set us free,
And buy for us our liberty.
And now from darkness we have light,
which makes all angels sing this night. (repeat)
Glory to God and peace to men,
Now and forever more Amen.
