One Holy Night

One Holy Night

Though tyrants and terrors
Threaten and pursue,
Peace shines forth in Your angelic Light.

Holy Infant of the stable
You shattered my darkness
In one Holy Night.

Holy Infant of the stable
You shattered my darkness
In one Holy Night.

I, too, shiver in the cold.
As enemies draw near,
In my plight, I simply trust.

I take heart that Your angels ring me ’round.
I trust that You will be ever near,
O hallowed, holy, God of Might.
