Christmas Eve Selection

"Oh Holy Night"
Music by Pla­cide Cap­pea and words by Adolphe C. Adam. This is said to have been the first mu­sic ev­er broad­cast over a ra­dio. This last stanza is so appropiate for this world!

Truly He taught us to love one another;
His law is love and His Gospel is peace.
Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother
And in His Name all oppression shall cease.
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
Let all within us praise His holy Name!
Christ is the Lord! O praise His name forever!
His pow’r and glory evermore proclaim!
His pow’r and glory evermore proclaim!
