“O Holy Night”
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
Oh night divine the night when Christ was born
Oh night divine oh night oh night divine
 
Verse 2
Truly He taught us to love one another
His law is love and His gospel is peace
Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother
And in His name all oppression shall cease
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we
With all our hearts we praise His holy name
Christ is the Lord oh praise His name forever
His power and glory evermore proclaim
His power and glory evermore proclaim

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

Todo duerme en derredor;

Una estrella esparce su luz,
Brilla sobre el Rey

Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace

Born to give them second birth
Hark the herald angels sing
