On a night so long ago, by the light of one bright star
Two weary travelers far from Galilee,
Took refuge in a stable where a little child was born
To bring the gift of love to you and me. 

And when the angels told the shepherds of his birth
There came a great rejoicing on the Earth.

Saying, "Glory to God in the highest".
In the dawn of that first Christmas morn.
Peace on Earth, good tidings of great joy.
For unto you this night a child is born.

And lo these many years since then that ancient star still guides us.
And now, again our Christmas voices ring.
Blessed we are and safe at home with loved ones here beside us
And in the deep and silent night we sing.

That the angels told the shepherds of his birth
And that there came a great rejoicing on the Earth.

Saying, "Glory to God in the highest".
In the dawn of that first Christmas morn.
Peace on Earth, good tidings of great joy,
For unto you this night a child is born.

For unto you this night a child is born.
