118. Sussex Carol

1 On Christmas night, all Christians sing,
To hear the news the angels bring,
On Christmas night, all Christians sing,
To hear the news the angels bring,
News of great joy and of great mirth,
Tidings of our dear Savior's birth.

2 The King of Kings to us is giv'n,
The Lord of earth and King of Heav'n;
The King of Kings to us is giv'n,
The Lord of earth and King of Heav'n;
Angels and men with joy may sing
Of blest Jesus, their newborn King.

3 So how on earth can we be sad,
When Jesus comes to make us glad?
So how on earth can we be sad,
When Jesus comes to make us glad?
From all our sins to set us free,
Buying for us our liberty?

4 From out of darkness have we light,
Which makes the angels sing this night:
From out of darkness have we light,
Which makes the angels sing this night:
"Glory to God, His peace to men,
And good will, evermore! Amen."
