Fall On Your Knees ~ O Holy Night

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby,
keeping watch over their flocks at night.  
An angel of the Lord appeared to them,
and the glory of the Lord shone around them,
 and they were terrified.  But the angel said to them,
“Do not be afraid. I bring you good news
that will cause great joy for all the people. 
Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you;
He is the Messiah, the Lord. 
This will be a sign to you:
You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel,
 praising God and saying,
“Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
 When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another,
“Let’s go to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened,
 which the Lord has told us about.”
Luke 2:8-15

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
'Til 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
O hear the angel voices
O night divine!
O night when Christ was born
O night divine!
O night, O night divine!
