On A Night Like No Other
On a night long ago, a star shown bright,
All our hope, all our joy was born that night.
On a night like no other in Bethlehem,
You were born to uphold your Father's plan.
On that holy night with love the angels shone,
Shepherds gazed into heaven and joy was known.
On that night as they hastened to see their King,
They heard the choirs of heaven sing.
O holy night of hope and love,
Born is the King of heaven above!
Born to redeem and sustain us all,
Born to raise us from our mortal fall.
So it was and still is our anthem true,
Great Jehovah all our lives were kept by you.
For on a night like no other you paid the price,
All our hopes every dream born of sacrifice.
On that night all the universe rested with you,
Mighty King of perfect love you saw us through!
Our loving Father looked on and wept to see,
The cost of redemption and what would be.
His holy son, his perfect son would atone for all,
On a night like no other you would heed his call.
Our Father's love, our only way, the cost so dear,
As you conquered death and hell, you conquered fear.
For on a night like no other the path was made sure,
Men could enter the gate and be raised to more!
Mighty King of salvation! Our life and light!
We raise our voices as we did that sacred night.
Holy King born to save us, we praise thy name,
You have conquered hell and taken our shame!
As we rise with faith and turn to thee,
The shackles fall and we are made free!
All our lives, all our hopes born of your love,
We thank you now and thank our loving Father above!
For that night like no other that held eternity,
When every hope and dream was kept by thee.
Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas to our Holy Light so dear,
Tonight we send our love with hearts of cheer!

"And again my brethren, I would call your attention, for I have somewhat more to speak unto you; for behold, I have things to tell you concerning that which is to come. And the things which I shall tell you are made known unto me by an angel from God. And he said unto me: Awake; and I awoke, and behold he stood before me. He said unto me: Awake, and hear the words which I shall tell thee; for behold, I am come to declare unto you the glad tidings of great joy. For the Lord hath heard thy prayers, and hath judged of thy righteousness, and hath sent me to declare unto thee that thou mayest rejoice; and that thou mayest declare unto thy people, that they may also be filled with joy. For behold, the time cometh, and is not far distant, that with power, the Lord Omnipotent who reigneth, who was, and is from all eternity to all eternity, shall come down from heaven among the children of men, and shall dwell in a tabernacle of clay, and shall go forth amongst men, working mighty miracles, such as healing the sick, raising the dead, causing the lame to walk, the blind to receive their sight, and the deaf to hear, and curing all manner of diseases. And he shall cast out devils, or the evil spirits which dwell in the hearts of the children of men. And lo, he shall suffer temptations, and pain of body, hunger, thirst, and fatigue, even more than man can suffer, except it be unto death; for behold, blood cometh from every pore, so great shall be his anguish for the wickedness and the abominations of his people. And he shall be called Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the Father of heaven and earth, the Creator of all things from the beginning; and his mother shall be called Mary. And lo, he cometh unto his own, that salvation might come unto the children of men even through faith on his name; and even after all this they shall consider him a man, and say that he hath a devil, and shall scourge him, and shall crucify him. And he shall arise the third day from the dead; and behold, he standeth to judge the world; and behold, all these things are done that a righteous judgment might come upon the children of men. For behold, and also his blood atoneth for the sins of those who have fallen by the transgression of Adam, who have died not knowing the will of God concerning them, or who have ignorantly sinned. But wo, wo unto him who knoweth that he rebelleth against God! For salvation cometh to none such except it be through repentance and faith on the Lord Jesus Christ. And the Lord God hath sent his holy prophets among all the children of men, to declare these things to every kindred, nation, and tongue, that thereby whosoever should believe that Christ should come, the same might receive remission of their sins, and rejoice with exceedingly great joy, even as though he had already come among them." Mosiah 3:1-13
