A little Christmas music

Here's a little Christmas music:
Jussi Bjoerling, "O Holy Night" (audio only)



Translation from the Swedish by evidux:

O holy night, O holy hour of the World,
When the man-god to earth ascended
To redeem the world's crimes and sins,
For us, he suffered death's pain.
And the beam of hope goes through the world,
And the light glimmers over land and sea.

People, fall down
and joyfully greet your freedom
O holy night, you gave us salvation
O holy night, you gave us salvation

For the savior has crushed our heavy shackles
Our world is free, heaven is now open
In your slave, you see a beloved brother
And see, your enemy shall become so dear to you
From heaven, the savior brought us peace
For us, he stepped down in his still grave

People, fall down
and joyfully greet your freedom
O holy night, you gave us salvation
O holy night, you gave us salvation
