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.”
