143. On Christmas Night All Christians Sing

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, news of great mirth,
news of our merciful Ruler’s birth.

2 Then why should we on earth be sad,
since our Redeemer made us glad;
Then why should we on earth be sad,
since our Redeemer made us glad,
When from our sin Christ set us free,
all for to gain our liberty.

3 From out of mystery came the Light,
which made the angels sing this night;
From our of mystery came the Light,
which made the angels sing this night:
“Glory to God and peace to all,
forevermore, Alleluia!”
