O holy night! The stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of the dear savior'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!
O night divine, the night when Christ was born.
A new and glorious morning
I well remember them, and my soul is downcast within me. 21 yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: 22 because of the lord's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. 23 they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. 24 I say to myself, "the lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him." 25 the lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; 26 it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the lord.
