A great company of the heavenly host appeared…saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom His favor rests.@Luke 2:13-14

Night of nights! when the bells of Heaven
Sweetly rang thro’ the midnight air;
When the beautiful white-robed angels
Sang for joy in the skies so fair.


Night of nights thro’ holy portals
Comes again the chant sublime,
Welcome now for the royal Stranger;
Greet your Lord this Christmas time!

O night of nights! O night divine!

Floating down in a sea of glory,
Telling unto the shepherds true:
Lo! this day in a lowly manger
Christ the Savior is born to you.


Night of nights! still the strains exultant
Thrill our souls with their notes sublime;
Still to those who with joy receive Him,
Jesus comes at the Christmas time.
