Oh Holy Night Lyrics by Given Mabena (Joyous Celebration 18)

1 Comment


(Languages: English, Zulu)

O holy night, the stars are brightly shining
It is the night of our dear Savior’s birth
Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth

The thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn
Fall on your knees, oh hear the angel voices
Oh night divine, it is the night when Christ was born
Oh night divine, oh night when Christ was born

Fall on your knees, Oh hear the angel voices
Oh night divine; Yes, a night when Christ was born
A night divine; Oh night, oh night divine

Makadunyiswe ngumuntu nengelosi (Men and angels shall praise Him)
Uphakeme uyimvana kaThixo (Be exalted, Lamb of God)
Wathwes’ umqhele engenaso isici (He was crowned yet innocent)
EyiNkosi efanel’ ukubongwa (Lord you are worthy of our praises)
NguJesu qha idwala laphakade (Jesus is the only Rock of Ages)
NguJesu qha iNkosi yokuthula (Jesus is the only Prince of Peace)

Khothama kuye uJesu yena yedwa (Worship Jesus alone)
INkosi yothando (Lord of love)
Inkosi yomusa (Lord of mercy)

Iqhawe lamaqhawe (Hero of heroes)
UNgcwele simakade (Almighty, You’re Holy)

Refrain:
Khothama kuye (Worship Him)
UJesu uyedwa (Jesus alone)
Inkos’ eyafa yavuka (Jesus rose from the dead)
Ipheth’ amandla (Powerful)

Iqhawe lamaqhawe (Hero of heroes)
UNgcwele simakade (Almighty, You’re holy)

(Refrain)

(Sung in Zulu)

Umhlaba wawunga kabikhona  (Before the earth was created)
Owayekhona uLizwi (The Word was there)
WayenguNkulunkulu (The Word was God)
ULizwi wayekuNkulunkulu (The Word lived in God)
Mhlaba lo wamnyama (The earth was still dark)
Wamemeza uLizwi (When the Word spoke)
Wathi makube nokukhanya (And said let there be light)
Vele ukukhanya kwabakhona (And there was light)
Ingaba ubani loyo (Who is that?)

Refrain:
Nguwe Jehova (It’s You Jehovah) x8

Yena wadal’ izulu nomhlaba (You created heaven and earth)
Wayesedala umuntu (And created man)
Waphefumlela kumuntu (You breathed life on the man)
Uba abuse phezu komhlaba (So he may rule the world)
Ingaba ubani loyo (Who is that?)

(Refrain)
