O Holy Night

Originally composed by Adolph Adam using the text from Placide Cappeau’s Cantique de Noël. The literal translation to English go a little something like this:

Midnight, Christians, is the solemn hour,
When God as man descended unto us
To erase the stain of original sin
And to end the wrath of His Father.
The entire world thrills with hope
On this night that gives it a Saviour.
People, kneel down, await your deliverance.
Christmas, Christmas, here is the Redeemer,
Christmas, Christmas, here is the Redeemer!

I’m glad they chose to tweak the lyrics to the final version.
