A Carol a Day

By Father Johann Roten, S.M.

December 11: A thrill of hope

Oh Holy Night

Placide Cappeau (lyrics)
Adolphe Adams (music)
1847
Minuit, chrétiens! (Translation by John Sullivan)

O holy night! The stars are brightly shining;
It is the night of the dear Saviour'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!
O night divine! O night when Christ was born!
O night divine! O night, O night divine!
