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 we 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 His grace,
then life and health come in its place;
when sin departs before His 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.”


About R. Christopher Teichler

Hello! I write music that I hope will engage with a broad range of listeners. I've written works for everything ranging from middle school band through professional symphony. I've written more choral music than for any other genre, for church choirs as well as college/university ensembles. My music is mostly self-published, but I also have works available from Alfred, Kjos, Lorenz, BRS Music and Pelican Music. Something I pride myself on is that while I am a musical artist, I'm also a regular guy. I will happily discuss classical music one minute and baseball/football the next! For more info on me and my music, you can visit my website: christeichler (dot) com. Thanks!
