Christmas Tree Lighting Lyrics

Silent Night
O Come, O Come Emmanuel
O Little Town of Bethlehem
Hark the Herald Angel Sings
God Rest You Merry Gentlemen


Silent Night

English
1. Silent night! Holy night!
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon Virgin Mother and child!
Holy Infant so tender and mild,
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace.

2. Silent night! Holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight;
Glories stream from heaven afar;
Heav’nly hosts sing “Alleluia!
Christ the Savior is born,
Christ the Savior is born.”

3. Silent night! Holy night!
Son of God, love’s pure light
Radiant beams from thy holy face,
With the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord, at thy birth,
Jesus, Lord, at thy birth.

Español
1. Noche de paz, Noche de amor;
Todo duerme en derredor.
Entre los astros que esparcen su luz
Bella anunciando al niñito Jesús,
Brilla la estrella de paz,
Brilla la estrella de paz.

2. Noche de paz, Noche de amor;
Mira qué gran resplandor
Luce en el rostro del Niño Jesús,
En el pesebre del mundo la luz,
Brilla la estrella de paz,
Brilla la estrella de paz.

3. Noche de paz, Noche de amor;
Al Divino Salvador
Que por nosotros nació en un portal.
Himnos cantemos de amor celestial.
¡Gloria por siempre al Señor!
¡Gloria por siempre al Señor!

Deutsch 
1. Stille Nacht! Heilige Nacht!
Alles schläft, einsam wacht
Nur das traute hochheilige Paar,
Holder Knabe im lokkigen Haar,
Schlaf’ in himmlischer Ruh’!
Schlaf’ in himmlischer Ruh’!

2. Stille Nacht! Heilige Nacht!
Hirten erst kundgemacht
Durch der Engel Halleluja,
Tönt es laut von ferne und nah:
Christ der Retter ist da!
Christ der Retter ist da!

3. Stille Nacht! Heilige Nacht!
Gottes Sohn, o wie lacht
Lieb’ aus deinem göttlichen Mund,
Da uns schlägt die rettende Stund’.
Jesus in deiner Geburt!
Jesus in deiner Geburt!

O Come, O Come Emmanuel

1. O come, O come, Emmanuel,
And ransom captive Israel,
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appear.

Refrain
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel!

2. O come, Thou Wisdom from on high,
Who ord’rest all things mightily;
To us the path of knowledge show,
And teach us in her ways to go.

3. O come, O come, Thou Lord of might,
Who to thy tribes on Sinai’s height
In ancient times didst give the law,
In cloud and majesty and awe.

4. O come, Thou Rod of Jesse’s stem,
From ev’ry foe deliver them
That trust thy mighty pow’r to save,
And give them vict’ry o’er the grave.

5. O come, Thou Key of David, come,
And open wide our heav’nly home;
Make safe the way that leads on high,
And close the path to misery.

6. O come, Thou Dayspring from on high
And cheer us by thy drawing nigh;
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night,
And death’s dark shadow put to flight.

7. O come, Desire of nations, bind
In one the hearts of all humankind;
Bid thou our sad divisions cease,
And be thyself our Prince of Peace.

O Little Town of Bethlehem

1. O little town of Bethlehem,
How still we see thee lie!
Above thy deep and dreamless sleep
The silent stars go by;
Yet in thy dark streets shineth
The everlasting Light;
The hopes and fears of all the years
Are met in thee tonight.

2. For Christ is born of Mary,
And gathered all above, 
While mortals sleep, the angels keep
Their watch of wond'ring love.
O morning stars, together
Proclaim the holy birth!
And praises sing to God the King,
And peace to all on earth.

3. How silently, how silently,
The wonderous gift is giv'n!
So God imparts to human hearts
The blessings of his heav'n.
No ear may hear his coming,
But in this world of sin,
Where meek souls will receive him, still
The dear Christ enters in.

4. O holy Child of Bethlehem!
Descend to us, we pray;
Cast out our sin and enter in;
Be born in us today.
We hear the Christmas angels
The great glad tidings tell;
O come to us, abide with us,
Our Lord Emmanuel!

Hark the Herald Angel Sings

1. Hark! the herald angels sing:
"Glory to the newborn King;
Peace on earth, and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled!"
Joyful, all ye nations, rise,
Join the triumph of the skies;
With angelic hosts proclaim:
"Christ is born in Bethlehem!"

Refrain
Hark! the herald angels sing,
"Glory to the newborn King."

2. Christ, by highest heav'n adored,
Christ, the everlasting Lord;
Late in time, behold him come,
Offspring of a virgin's womb.
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see!
Hail th'incarnate Deity!
Pleased as man with us to dwell;
Jesus, our Emmanuel!

3. Hail the heav'n-born Prince of Peace!
Hail the Sun of Righteousness!
Light and life to all he brings,
Ris'n with healing in his wings.
Mild he lays his glory by,
Born that we no more may die,
Born to raise us from the earth,
Born to give us second birth.

God Rest You Merry Gentlemen

1. God rest you merry, gentlemen,
Let nothing you dismay;
Remember Christ our Savior
Was born on Christmas Day
To save us all from Satan's pow'r
When we were gone astray.

Refrain
O tidings of comfort and joy, 
Comfort and joy;
O tidings of comfort and joy.

2. From God our heav'nly Father
A blessed angel came,
And unto certain shepherds
Brought tidings of the same,
How that in Bethlehem was born
The Son of God by name.

3. "Fear not, then," said the angel,
"Let nothing you affright;
This day is born a Savior
Of Virgin pure and bright,
To free all those who trust in him
From Satan's pow'r and might."

4. Now to the Lord sing praises,
All you within this place,
And with true love and charity
Each other now embrace;
This holy tide of Christmas 
Is filled with heav'nly grace.
