1. On Christmas night all Christians sing, To hear the news the angels bring; On Christmas night all Christians sing, To hear the news the angels bring: News of great joy, news of great mirth, News of our merciful King’s birth.
2. Then why should men on earth be so sad, Since our Redeemer made us glad: Then why should men on earth be so sad, Since our Redeemer made us glad: When from our sin He set us free, All for to gain our liberty.
3. When sin departs before Your grace, Then life and health come in its place; When sin departs before Your grace, Then life and health come in its place; Angels and men with joy may sing, All for to see the newborn King.
4. All out of darkness we have light Which made the angels sing this night; All out of darkness we have light Which made the angels sing this night: “Glory to God and peace to men, Now and forevermore. Amen”
