Drifters, The - Oh Holy Night Lyrics

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!

    Simply Exquisite. Sung with heart and conviction.

  10. John Haines

    Let the minor notes of the chorus enter the very fibre of your being, and kneel. This melody, these lyrics, these vocals - are God Given. Respect.

    Ηκαλύτερη απόδοση στο συγκεκριμένο κομμάτι.Καταπληκτική απόδοση.


    does anyone know who this lead singer is? I know the Drifters had several personnel changes.

    Darren Jones

    FAKOKTA Bill pinkney

    Evelyn Banna

    Yes absolutely it's Bill Pinkey. What a beautiful voice. The very best version of O Holy Night you will ever hear.


    +Evelyn Banna --- that's not right, it's a very good interpretation, but nothing, absolutely nothing goes beyond Mahalia Jackson's version. She is absolutely the non plus ultra about this song !!!

    Evelyn Banna

    I've listened to Mahalia Jackson's version and sorry but I disagree with you. Yes her voice is very powerful but Bill Pinkey's pure voice and clarity surpasses Mahalia's. But it's the season of good will and each to our own truth.
    Love and light to all you lovers of the Drifters. Merry Christmas 🕯

    Clive Garlow

    See my comment above. Drifters hold second place only to Mahalia Jackson. Pinkney's lead voice is truly inspired as well.
