    O Holy Night
    From Wikipedia.
    “O Holy Night” (Cantique de Noël) is a well-known Christmas carol composed by Adolphe Adam in 1847 to the French poem “Minuit, chrétiens” by Placide Cappeau (1808-1877), a wine merchant and poet. Cappeau was asked to write a Christmas poem by a parish priest. It has become a standard modern carol for solo performance with an operatic finish.

    Origins
    In the carol, the singer recalls the birth of Jesus. It was translated into English by Unitarian minister John Sullivan Dwight, editor of Dwight’s Journal of Music in 1855, and lyrics also exist in other languages.

    On 24 December 1906, Reginald Fessenden, a Canadian inventor, broadcast the first AM radio program, which included him playing “O Holy Night” on the violin. The carol therefore appears to have been the first piece of music to be broadcast on radio. It later appeared in an edition of carols by Josiah Armes, published by Oxford in 1936, subsequently increasing its popularity.

    Lyrics
    O Holy Night – Version 1:

    O holy night! The stars are brightly shining,
    It is the night of our dear Saviour’s birth.
    Long lay the world in sin and error pining,
    ‘Til He appear’d and the soul felt its worth.
    A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
    For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
    Fall on your knees! O, hear the angels’ voices!
    O night divine, O night when Christ was born;
    O night divine, O night, O night Divine.

    Led by the light of Faith serenely beaming,
    With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand.
    So led by light of a star sweetly gleaming,
    Here come the wise men from Orient land.
    The King of Kings lay thus in lowly manger;
    In all our trials born to be our friend.
    He knows our need, to our weakness is no stranger,
    Behold your King! Before Him lowly bend!
    Behold your King, Behold your King.

    Truly He taught us to love one another;
    His law is love and His gospel is peace.
    Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother;
    And in His name all oppression shall cease.
    Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
    Let all within us praise His holy name.
    Christ is the Lord! O praise His Name forever,
    His power and glory evermore proclaim.
    His power and glory evermore proclaim.

    O Holy Night – Version 2:

    O! Holy night! The stars, their gleams prolonging,
    Watch o’er the Eve of our dear Saviour’s birth.
    Long lay the world in sin and error, longing
    For His appearance, then 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! O, hear the angel voices!
    O night divine, the night when Christ was Born;
    O night, O holy night, O night divine!

    Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,
    With glowing hearts we stand by the Babe adored.
    O’er the world a star is sweetly gleaming,
    And come now, Shepherds, from your flocks unboard.
    The Son of God lay thus w’thin lowly manger;
    In all our trials born to be our Lord.
    He knows our need, our weakness never lasting,
    Behold your King! By Him, let Earth accord!
    Behold your King! By Him, let Earth accord!

    Truly He taught us to love one another,
    His law is love and His gospel is peace.
    Long live His truth, and may it last forever,
    For in His name all discordant noise 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!

    (The second and third choruses are often replaced with a refrain of the first).

    KISS AND SAY GOODBYE BYE MANHATTANS (NARRATED BY BARRY WHITE)

    [Spoken:]
    This has got to be the saddest day of my life
    I called you here today for a bit of bad news
    I won’t be able to see you anymore
    Because of my obligations, and the ties that you have
    We’ve been meeting here everyday
    And since this is our last day together
    I wanna hold you just one more time
    When you turn and walk away, don’t look back
    I wanna remember you just like this
    Let’s just kiss and say goodbye

    I had to meet you here today
    There’s just so many things to say
    Please don’t stop me ’til I’m through
    This is something I hate to do
    We’ve been meeting here so long
    I guess what we done, oh was wrong
    Please darlin’, don’t you cry
    Let’s just kiss and say goodbye

    Many months have passed us by
    (I’m gonna miss you)
    I’m gonna miss you, I can’t lie
    (I’m gonna miss you)
    I’ve got ties, and so do you
    I just think this is the thing to do
    It’s gonna hurt me, I can’t lie
    Maybe you’ll meet, you’ll meet another guy
    Understand me, won’t you try, try, try, try, try, try, try
    Let’s just kiss and say goodbye (Goodbye)

    (I’m gonna miss you)
    I’m gonna miss you, I can’t lie
    (I’m gonna miss you)
    Understand me, won’t you try
    (I’m gonna miss you)
    It’s gonna hurt me, I can’t lie
    (I’m gonna miss you)
    Take my hankerchief, wipe your eyes
    (I’m gonna miss you)
    Maybe you’ll find, you’ll find another guy
    (I’m gonna miss you)
    Let’s kiss and say goodbye, pretty baby
    (I’m gonna miss you)
    Please, don’t you cry
    (I’m gonna miss you)
    Understand me, won’t you try
    (I’m gonna miss you)
    Let’s just kiss
    And say goodbye

    ALWAYS AND FOREVER BY MANHATTANS

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f1Iw88JQGEY&feature=related

    Hey, it started out as friends
    Friends turned into lovers
    Do you remember when
    I held you for the very first time
    Love made it so easy girl
    Well, you must read my mind
    (I say…)
    I want you, I need you
    Oh, girl, how I believe in you
    You’re the light
    That has always seen me through
    In you … I could find
    That I will be
    Forever by your side
    Now we see our love has grown
    And these have been the sweetest times
    That I have ever known
    And I know
    That it will never end
    ‘Cause every time I look at you
    I fall in love again
    I want you (I want you), I need you (I need you)
    Oh, girl, how I believe in you
    (You’re the light ) You’re the light (that shines)
    That has always seen me through
    In you … I could find
    That I will be
    Forever by your side
    Longer than the sun will shine
    Love is a tie that bind us
    Forever, forever
    Two hearts are meant to be
    One love eternally
    Together, forever, forever
    I want you, I need you
    Oh, girl, how I believe in you
    You’re the light
    That has always seen me through
    In you … I could find
    That I will be
    Forever by your side
    I want you (I want you), I need you (I need you)
    Oh, girl, how I believe in you
    You’re the light (that shines)
    That has always seen me through
    In you … I could find
    That I will be
    Forever by your side
