"As Sudden Angels Filled the Night" tells of the angels who appeared, the new star, and the glory they brought. It reminds us that that light will ever shine because of the atonement of Jesus Christ.

Text: Toni Thomas   Music: Sally DeFord

As sudden angels filled the night

And glory spilt around,

The shepherds, bright with holy light,

Heard angel voices sound:

Rejoice! Rejoice! Rejoice at Jesus’ birth!

No more may darkness rule the earth!

 

The angels fled, and all was still,

And all was dark once more.

While shepherds haste to seek the child,

One glorious star is born.

Rejoice! Rejoice! Rejoice at Jesus’ birth!

No more may darkness rule the earth!

 

The starlight falls in tender flood

Where Babe and Mary bide;

The silv’ry light brings peace and love

To all this holy night.

Rejoice! Rejoice! Rejoice at Jesus’ birth!

No more may darkness rule the earth!

Not far, another holy night,

Such angels will attend

A cross made bright by starry light,

A tomb where death shall end.

Rejoice! Rejoice! Rejoice at Jesus’ birth!

o more may darkness rule the earth!

 

When doubt and darkness gather strong,

Let never hope be far:

Remember strains of angel song

And silver light of star.

Rejoice! Rejoice! Rejoice at Jesus’ birth!

No more may darkness rule the earth!
