Part 2 of 2

Choir und Baritone:
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 Kings birth.

When sin departs before thy grace,
Then life and health come in its place.
Angels and men with joy may sing.
All for to see the new-born King.

God bless the ruler of this house
And long on may he reign,
Many happy Christmases
He live to see again.
God bless our generation,
who live both far and near,
And we wish them a happy,
a happy New Year.

From out of darkness we have light
Which makes the angels sing this night.
Glory to God and peace to men.
Both now and evermore, Amen.

O we wish you a happy,
A happy New Year,
Both now and evermore.
