MINUIT, CHRÉTIENS (O Holy Night) (Adolphe Adam / Roquemaure) Recorded by: Roberto Alagna; Jules Bastin, L'Ensemble Arion; Lyne Fortin; Barbara Hendricks; Raoul Jobin; Jack Lantier; Tino Rossi. Minuit, chrétiens, C'est l'heure solennelle Où l'Homme Dieu descendit jusqu'à nous Pour effacer la tache originelle Et de son père arrêter le courroux. Le mode entier tressaille d'espérance En cette nuit qui lui donne un sauveur. Peuple à genoux, Attends ta délivrance! Noël! Noël! Voici le Rédempteur! Noël! Noël! Voici le Rédempteur! Le rédempteur A brisé toute entrave: La terre est libre Et le ciel est ouvert. Il voit un frère Où n'était qu'un esclave; L'amour unit ceux qu'enchaînait le fer. Qui lui dira notre reconnaissance? C'est pour nous tous qu'il naît, Qu'il souffre et meurt. Peuple debout, Chante ta délivrance! Noël! Noël! Chantons le Rédempteur! Noël! Noël! Chantons le Rédempteur! ***** O HOLY NIGHT (Cantique de Noël) (Adam / Charles) Perry Como - 1968 Reba McEntire - 1988 Lorrie Morgan - 1993 Also recorded by: Crystal Gayle; Jeannie Seeley; Lee Greenwood; The Lennon Sisters; Mormon Tabernacle Choir; Joni James; Bing Crosby; Jeffrey Osborne; John Berry; The Duprees; Kenny Rogers; Jim Nabors; Jerry Vale; Charley Pride; The Drifters; Nat King Cole; Moe Bandy; B.J. Thomas; John Davidson; Robert Goulet; Liberace. O holy night! The stars are brightly shining, It is the night of the dear Saviour's birth. Long lay the world in sin and error pining. Till He appeared and the Spirit felt its worth. A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices, For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn. Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices! O night divine, the night when Christ was born; O night, O holy night, O night divine! O night, O holy night, O night divine! Led by the light of faith serenely beaming, With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand. O'er the world a star is sweetly gleaming, Now come the wisemen from out of the Orient land. The King of kings lay thus lowly manger; In all our trials born to be our friends. He knows our need, our weakness is no stranger, Behold your King! Before him lowly bend! Behold your King! Before him lowly bend! Truly He taught us to love one another, His law is love and His gospel is peace. Chains he shall break, for the slave is our brother. And in his name all oppression shall cease. Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we, With all our hearts we praise His holy name. Christ is the Lord! Then ever, ever praise we, His power and glory ever more proclaim! His power and glory ever more proclaim! *****
