The Sussex Carol

1. 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

 

 

[Chorus:]
News of great joy news of great mirth
News of our merciful King’s birth
When from our sin he set us free
All for to gain our liberty?

 

 

2. Then why should men on earth be so sad
Since our Redeemer made us glad
Then why should men on earth be so sad
Since our Redeemer made us glad [Chorus]

 

 

3. When sin departs before his grace
Then life and health come in its place
When in its place, angels and men with joy may sing
All for to see the new born King [Chorus]

 

 

4. All out of darkness we have light
Which made the angels sing this night
Glory to God and peace to men
Now and forever more, Amen.
