Christmas

At Midnight

Psalm text (Ps 96:1-2,3-4,11-12,13)

Today is born our Saviour, Christ the Lord.

O sing to the Lord a new song;
sing to the Lord, all the earth.
Sing to the Lord, bless his name;
tell of his salvation from day to day.

Declare his glory among the nations,
his marvellous works among all the peoples.
For great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised;
he is to be revered above all gods.

Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice;
let the sea roar, and all that fills it;
let the field exult, and everything in it.
Then shall all the trees of the forest sing for joy.

Rejoice before the Lord; for he is coming,
for he is coming to judge the earth.
He will judge the world with righteousness,
and the peoples with his truth.

Gospel Verse (Lk 2:10-11)

Good news and great joy to all the world: today is born our Saviour, Christ the Lord.

At Midnight

Psalm text (Ps 96:1-2a, 2b-3, 11-12, 13)

Today is born our Savior, Christ the Lord.

Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all you lands.
Sing to the Lord; bless His name.

Announce His salvation, day after day.
Tell His glory among the nations;
among all peoples, His wondrous deeds.

Let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoice;
let the sea and what fills it resound;
let the plains be joyful and all that is in them!
Then shall all the trees of the forest exult.

They shall exult before the Lord, for He comes.
For He comes to rule the earth.
He shall rule the world with justice
and the peoples with his constancy.
