Rossum, Emmy - O 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!

  15. Stevenson Demegillo

    Hear the angel voices..Happy Holidays...The right time to celebrate:)

  16. atlantis2339

    @aprettyprettyprinces but she did train as an opera singer when she was younger.she even mentioned that during an interview with gerard butler.

  17. Jim Corso

    In the 20 years I've been married, it has been a tradition in our family to buy a new Christmas CD each year. I discovered this one quite by accident. What a beautiful voice. I'm ashamed to admit that I NEVER KNEW you were such a wonderful singer. Thank you for making my family's 2011 Christmas one to remember!!!

  18. Bill Shark

    you dont have to hit those painfully high notes to really make something work. She has a rich beautiful tone and depth that expresses the wonder of a christmas carol. you want a opera go watch one. this is about the birth of our lord savior. not about b.s.

  19. GabrielleGrey

    @nightbloomingly I agree, she should definately do what makes her happy! My own classically programmed brain can't help but be a little disappointed however!

    arlene hobson

    GabrielleGrey lovely

  20. GabrielleGrey

    @nightbloomingly Ok, that's great. It's half a step lower. Big woop. I'm not trying to prove that Emmy should be some amazing opera singer, I simply stated that SOME of the songs in Phantom have an operatic quality to them (which you just proved with the statement about the requirement's for the part of Carlotta) and that Emmy has more potential then what she is showing in her albums.

  21. GabrielleGrey

    @nightbloomingly It's not like I said I was the lead in some huge professional opera so just calm yourself. I played Amahl in the opera Amahl and the Night Visitors, and believe me, I did a pretty bang up job, as I was asked to do it again and again, and my voice is in no way destroyed Obviously since then I've stepped up my game to bigger and better operas, but STILL, the knowledge is there, and it was planted in my brain from very early on.

  22. GabrielleGrey

    @nightbloomingly I have also had years of classical training and I have been starring as the lead role in Opera's since I was eight years old. I KNOW actual operas are extremely more difficult then Phantom, but Phantom's songs are not typical broadway musical songs, they are more classical and are CLOSER to opera then broadway style. And she was 17 years old when she sang that high E which is impressive. She could have done alot more with her album.

  23. Clara O'Doyle

    Holy cow. That was amazing. My fave Christmas song by far, and she just nailed it! I melted from the inside! I love you Emmy!

  24. GabrielleGrey

    @aprettyprettyprinces Phantom of the Opera is not an opera, you are right. But many of the songs in it are operatic, as the setting is an opera house! And I don't know very many singers, opera singers or not, who can hit that high E like Emmy can. I love her album and this song, but I too am disappointed in her lack of songs with a challenging range and more classical style, as she displayed the ability to sing them in Phantom.

  25. SodbusterLiving

    I love how she uses her VOICE! She doesnt breath out the words like a lot of contemporary singers. WOOT!

  26. Zed Dravot


  27. LadyOfTheElements

    @aprettyprettyprinces It may only be a musical, but her voice still sounded far better in that then in this song, even if it is a good song to listen to. It just doesn't seem to do her voice justice.

  28. Aida Nafei Christensen

    @aprettyprettyprinces not that version of the opera no. Besides a lyric soprano is still kind of an operatic singer... And it's not usual for a non-classical singer to have such a high range. She's good, you know. However: in this version of O Holy Night she reaches apporximately D sharp(no. 2 above the middle c) and in the original version it's the high A, which is a pitty. But i think it's in order to make the song more rythmic/pop(you have probably noticed the drum beat as well). I like it!

  29. Emily Grumbine

    Her voice is marvelous! I love how she sings "fall on your knees." But I like when she harmonizes with herself a little better too. :)

  30. Pyniekk

    super no i nie długo kewin sam w domu hehe

  31. PhantomsAngel07

    Singing to this song now. Lol. I'm a decent (2nd) soprano, but nothing compared to Emmy.

  32. MrTanner25

    Oh the things this woman is such an amazing, like im speechless, what i wouldnt do to meet Emmy.

  33. isearchforfullmoons

    Wait, I just realized: Isn't she Jewish? Is she a Messianic Jew or does she just enjoy Christmas songs, including the more religious ones?

  34. Amy Newman

    @justdance898, I agree with you so much! Thank you for saying that!

  35. musicaltheatre303

    I love this song so much. So soothing and beautiful. I love how she sings it.

  36. rachelaceyobrien

    I wish she would do a more recent album, since her voice has definitely changed since 2007. This is a classic though. And I still listen to Inside Out. :)

    I want to be her. Gaaah, especially her hair! I almost hate looking at this picture, because I get super jealous.. haha.

  37. Brittney Le

    i love this song its so soothing!

  38. alwmusicful

    She really should do a Christmas CD. That would be amazing.

  39. Bleachie100

    I really wish i could sing like her.

  40. Maggie Brown

    in phantom of the opera, she is! Her voice may have gone lower since which is possible..for anyone to hit that High E, only a coloratura soprano can hit it.....I know, I did it too......she has a wide range also.......she may choose not to sing all the real high notes...........

  41. Maggie Brown

    she has a beautiful voice and gifted to be able to reach very high notes, that's called a colortura 1st soprano

  42. Jackie Saturno

    big fan:)
    love her

  43. 杜立薇

    如此美好的歌聲 以前我都沒有找到喜歡的明星,現在她就是我有生以來第一個最愛的明星。

  44. Sarah Fanucchi

    I love her voice. i love it phantom of the opera.

  45. thasingingbee

    This is so beautiful!

  46. LFL2494

    I love how they added a nice drumbeat to this version to modernize it a bit. Beautiful voice, as always. ^_^

  47. GhostofaSiren

    Too bad she didn't try to go higher... oh well.

  48. Rozeth Shy

    her voice is heavenly...It puts me to sleep...

  49. Stina Dahl

    It is on sale on iTunes as EP and as mp3 download on Amazon. This was just a "bonus" released just a couple short months after her first CD "Inside Out", and I think it really was more a collaboration between her and producer Stuart Brawley saying "Hey, let's do this!" rather than the record company itself. So this is what they came up with. Stunning, isn't it?:)

  50. Jon

    Actually ignore that last one ... description tells you everything you need to know

  51. Jon

    Emmy has an album called 'Inside Out'. I don't know if this is on it but you might want to try that.

  52. LFL2494

    I was wondering if she was going to do this with minimal layering, which she did. AWESOME. Seriously. Anybody who says she can't sing after hearing this, I would gladly punch them in the face.

  53. Dreaming in Daylight

    I know. Me too.

  54. amoeba2315

    If anyone compares her to Lindsay lohan, Hillary Duff, Britney spears or any other disney sensation that thought they could sing, They are SADLY mistaken. Emmy is the real deal! She can sing and act, for example watch Phantom of the Opera. Those are her true vocals, I truly believe she is underrated in both categories. Not only is she naturally beautiful but also equally talented. I really wish I could meet her one day.

  55. Eragonlover4ever

    Omg, she sings this song soo beautifuly:)
    She is amazing
    One word to describe this song: beautiful

  56. pigpen4483

    I don't understand why there are so many people that hate emmy rossum! she's a wonderful actress and singer! and if you don't like her, then kindly fuck off

  57. musicaltheatre303

    She has a way pretty voice! I love her music.

  58. Moonchild98

    She has a great future ahead of her :D
    I find her music original~

  59. LivieLightyear

    That was gold. You made me laugh. x3

    Emmy has a great voice: and it's real.

  60. Vivian Cooper

    She is an amzing woman with an etraordinary voice. So beautiful. This song was made for her. Absolutely exquisite, this brings warmth to my heart, definately puts me in the Christmas mood, and it's only September.

  61. dogsrule3444

    Her voice is just plain amazing. It is beautiful.

  62. Flafla De Los Pasillos

    Velho, a voz dela é perfeita!

  63. AyaCelest

    preciosa voz :)

  64. elvenarcher113

    yea thankyou, her voice is so beautiful and pure to the core!! she's very breathy but it probably is a result of putting every bit of her voice into something like this. she loves to sing so she really gets into it

  65. Persephone's Underworld

    A delightfully simple rendition of this old favorite. Her voice is so pure and and beautiful. Gorgeous version of one of my fave Christmas songs!

  66. angelicvoices

    She has really poor breathing techniques in places. I'm not fond of this.. but i've heard a lot worse. At least she's not oversinging.

  67. Em Liz

    I love this song!! :D :D she has an amazing voice!
