Vaughan Williams' wonderful arrangement of the Sussex Carol. Three versions included. SATB and Organ (the original), SAB Choir and Organ, Two-Part Mixed Choir and Organ (Extra-EASY!) Very English, very Christmas. You can't go wrong with the classics!

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:
News of great joy, news of great mirth,
News of our merciful King’s birth.

When sin departs before Thy grace,
Then life and health come in its place;
When sin departs before Thy grace,
Then life and health come in its place;
Angels and men with joy may sing,
All for to see the newborn King.

All out of darkness we have light
Which made the angels sing this night;
All out of darkness we have light
Which made the angels sing this night:
“Glory to God and peace to men,
Now and forevermore. Amen.”
