Sussex Carol Lyrics

Sussex Carol - The Choir of King's College, Cambridge/Simon Preston

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 birth

News of our merciful King's birth

 

Then why should man

On earth be so sad

Since our redeemer made us glad

Then why should man

On earth be so 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 it's place

When sin departs before His grace

Then life and health come in it's 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 man

Now and forever more, amen
