Sussex Carol - On Christmas Night
Music - Traditional English Carol
- 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 King's birth.
- Then why should men on earth be so sad,
Since our Redeemer made us glad?
When from our sin he set us free,
All for to gain our liberty.
- When sin departs before his grace,
Then life and health come in its place;
Angels and men with joy may sing,
All for to see the newborn King.
- All out of darkness we have light,
Which made the angels sing this night;
'Glory to God and peace to men,
Now and for evermore. Amen.'
