Lyrics

Night of nights! when the bells of Hea­ven
Sweetly rang thro’ the mid­night air;
When the beau­ti­ful white-robed an­gels
Sang for joy in the skies so fair.

Refrain

Night of nights thro’ ho­ly por­tals
Comes again the chant sub­lime,
Welcome now for the roy­al Stran­ger;
Greet your Lord this Christ­mas time!

O night of nights! O night di­vine!

Floating down in a sea of glo­ry,
Telling un­to the shep­herds true:
Lo! this day in a low­ly man­ger
Christ the Sav­ior is born to you.

Refrain

Night of nights! still the strains ex­ult­ant
Thrill our souls with their notes sub­lime;
Still to those who with joy re­ceive Him,
Jesus comes at the Christ­mas time.
