Oh night when Christ was born


(Swedish version translated into English)

People, fall down now, and salute gladly your freedom.
O Holy Night, you salvation to us gave
For the Saviour destroyed our heavy shackles.
Our Earth is free, heaven is open now

Umeå Studentchoir När Det Lider Mot Jul, Det strålar en stjärna (A radient star)l

The rays of a star so marvelous bright,
she stands in the east the sky.
She shone over man's turmoil and strife
for nearly two thousand years.
When days gets dark and when snow falls white,
then she progresses closer, then she comes here
and then you know, that it's Christmas time.

For Christmas is pleasant for big and for small,
there's joy and the sweetest peace,
for Christmas presents and Christmas trees and circle of dances also,
there's luck and gentleness,
there's light, all eyes shining bright,
and the stars twinkle at most
and where light is, it is Christmas time

Bered en väg för herran (Prepare a way for the Lord)

Bereden väg för Herran (Prepare the way of the Lord) is an Advent hymn by Frans Michael Franzén written in 1812, translated into english below by Carl Grinde

Prepare way for the Lord! let mountains, sink deep, stand up.
He comes, he who is afar off, as seen by their fathers hope.
He is the King of Righteousness, of Davids house the greatest.
Oh Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord.

God's people, to you, he shall rise, an everlasting emperor up.
Spread palm trees, wide out clothes, sing your fulfilled hope.
God's promises can be trusted, now shouting: Hosanna!
Oh Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord.

Make your gates wide for the glory of the Lord.
Behold, the nations around you bide to reach your bliss.
Around the nations all, this paean score:
Oh Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord.

Not he with armies and not with pomp and splendor;
However evil he horrifies in all its pride of your power.
With the sword of the Spirit, he battles and victories, when he suffers.
Oh Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord.

O people, the Lord viket of sinful lust and vanity,
Attention, the holy kingdom is not of this world,
Not of its sages found, not of its heroes won.
Oh Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord.

The faith which he climbs, is in his Father's house.
The empire he inaugurates love is merely light.
His praise of tender mouths mere grace and peace proclaims.
Oh Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord.

Jerusalem is desolate, its temple fallen down.
Its priests are dead, its spire is no more.
But Christ's kingdom lasting and increasingly appears.
Oh Blessed is he that comes in the name of the Lord.

Joy to the world
Adolf Fredriks musikklasser Joy to the world


A very good song about Jesus with a short title: He
He can turn the tides
And calm the angry sea.
He alone decides
Who writes a symphony.
He lights ev'ry star
That makes our darkness bright.
He keeps watch all through
Each long and lonely night.
He still finds the time
To hear a child's first prayer.
Saint or sinner call
And always find Him there.

Though it makes him sad
To see the way we live,
He'll always say, "I forgive."

He can grant a wish
Or make a dream come true.
He can paint the clouds
And turn the gray to blue.
He alone knows where
To find the rainbow's end.
He alone can see
What lies beyond the bend.
He can touch a tree
And turn the leaves to gold.
He knows every lie
That you and I have told.

Though it makes him sad
To see the way we live,
He'll always say, "I forgive."
