BRIDGE
You draw the hearts of shepherds
You draw the hearts of kings
Even as a baby
You were changing everything
You called me to Your Kingdom
Before Your lips could speak
And even as a baby
You were reaching out for me
And now we are awaiting
The day of Your return
When every eye will see You
As heaven comes to earth
Until the sky is opened
Until the trumpet sounds

The bride is getting ready
The church is singing out

ENDING
Come, thou long expected Jesus
born to set thy people free
from our fears and sins release us
let us find our rest in thee
Come Thou long expected King

 

O HOLY NIGHT

Introduction

Verse 1
Oh, Holy night
The stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear Savior’s birth
Long lay the world in sin and error, pining
Till He appeared, and the soul felt it’s
worth
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious
morn

Chorus
Fall on your knees
O hear the angel voices
O night divine
O night when Christ was born
O night divine
O 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 raise we
Let all within us praise His holy name

Chorus
Fall on your knees
O hear the angel voices
O night divine
O night when Christ was born
O night divine
O night, oh night divine
Fall on your knees
O hear the angel voices

O night divine
O night when Christ was born

Tag
O night divine
O night, oh night divine
