Christmas Carols - 13

At present the Chapel of the Resurrection is full of light - the fully lit Advent Wreath, the lights around the Crib, and the lights on the Christmas Tree. It all looks most festive and brightens up the bleak midwinter!

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.

Then why should we on earth be so sad,
Since our Redeemer made us glad,
When from our sins he set us free,
All for to gain our liberty?

When sin departs before his grace,
Then life and health come in its place;
Heaven and earth with joy may sing,
All for to see the new-born King.

All out of darkness we have light,
Which made the angels sing this night;
'Glory to God, and peace to men,
Now and for evermore. Amen'.
