On Christmas night all Christians sing (Sussex Carol)

Lyrics

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 King’s birth.

Then why should men 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, He set us free
All for to gain our liberty.

When sin departs before Your grace
Then life and health come in its place;
When sin departs before Your 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;
All out of darkness we have light
Which made the angels sing this night;
“Glory to God and peace to men
Now and forevermore. Amen.”

Eternal Father Strong To Save (Melita) – Organ & Trumpet Descant

Lyrics ~ 4 verses

Eternal Father, strong to save,
Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,
Who bidd’st the mighty ocean deep
Its own appointed limits keep;
Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee,
For those in peril on the sea!

O Christ! Whose voice the waters heard
And hushed their raging at Thy word,
Who walked’st on the foaming deep,
And calm amidst its rage didst sleep;
Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee,
For those in peril on the sea!

Most Holy Spirit! Who didst brood
Upon the chaos dark and rude,
And bid its angry tumult cease,
And give, for wild confusion, peace;
Oh, hear us when we cry to Thee,
For those in peril on the sea!

O Trinity of love and power!
Our brethren shield in danger’s hour;
From rock and tempest, fire and foe,
Protect them wheresoe’er they go;
Thus evermore shall rise to Thee
Glad hymns of praise from land and sea.
