As the choir of angels sing
Singing praise

Yes, all the lights
Are shining brightly
As the choir of angels sing
Singing praise
Now in the highest
At the birth of Christ the King

Open my eyes
O heart believe
The wonder of that Christmas night
Be born in me

Sing again the sacred song
Of how that star lit up the sky
And how this world lost in the darkness
Felt the hope of heaven’s holy light

Open my eyes
O heart believe
The wonder of that Christmas night
Be born in me

All the lights are shining brightly
At the glory of the King
All the lights are shining brightly
For the glory of Your name

We hold a flame in our hearts now
Say a prayer that in this world
All these lights, these Christmas lights
Would shine for You
And You alone

All the lights are shining brightly
At the birth of Christ the King
All the lights are shining brightly
For the glory of Your name
