O Holy Night

“O Holy Night” is perhaps the most sung holiday carol every Christmas season. Its origin is French, dating from 1843, then translated to English in 1855.

Each stanza brings to life the wondrous event, the miraculous birth of our savior on one holy night; Jesus, the savior of the world. An event so glorious that earth knew to rejoice for sin no longer would bind us, for souls no longer would feel contempt.

O Holy Night

O holy night, the stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of the dear Saviour’s birth;
Long lay the world in sin and error pining,
‘Till he appeared and the soul felt its worth.
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks a new and glorious morn;

Chorus
Fall on your knees, Oh hear the angel voices!
O night divine! O night when Christ was born.
O night divine, O night, O night divine.

To Jesus, the King of kings, we are led to worship by faith. Though born in a manger this mightiest King draws attention of Wise Men who come to bow before Him…a baby, our King, who knows our every need.

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;

Chorus
He knows our need, To our weakness no stranger!
Behold your King! Before Him lowly bend!
Behold your King! your King! before him bend!

The precious life of this wondrous baby on this one holy night brought to mankind love and peace. On this holy night we were set free from misery and pain. Let us rejoice and praise His holy name!

Christ is Lord, evermore, evermore!

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!

Chorus
Christ is the Lord, then ever! ever praise we!
His pow’r and glory, evermore proclaim!
His pow’r and glory, evermore proclaim!

May you and your loved ones rejoice in the birth of our savior, Jesus Christ, while listening to Patti LaBelle’s inspirational rendition of “O Holy Night”.


ARE YOU A FOLLOWER OF JESUS?

Have you invited Jesus into your heart? Now is the perfect time. Pray this sinner’s prayer found at Gotquestions.com. Through Jesus you will receive hope that He alone offers.

“God, I know that I am a sinner. I know that I deserve the consequences of my sin. However, I am trusting in Jesus Christ as my Savior. I believe that His death and resurrection provided for my forgiveness. I trust in Jesus and Jesus alone as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you Lord, for saving me and forgiving me! Amen!”
