Tune:  "O Holy Night"
by Adolphe Adam

O holy night, the stars are brightly shining.
It is the night of the Sun God's rebirth
Long lay the world, in cold and darkness pining.
`Til He appeared, and the soul felt its worth.

A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices.
For yonder breaks, a new and glorious morn.
Rise from your knees! O hear the Pagan's voices!
O night divine. O night when light was born.
O night divine. O night divine.

[Variant Verses]

O holy night, the stars are brightly shining
It is the night of the Goddess's birth
Long lay the world in patriarchy pining
Til She appeared and the soul felt its worth

A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn
Rise from your knees! O hear the women's voices!
O night divine, O night when Light is born
O night divine, O night, O night divine.
