I thought today I would share with you the words (at least the first verse) of my favorite Christmas song. It almost never fails to bring tears to my eyes when I hear it as I imagine falling to my knees and praising God for what He has done. I had a very merry Christmas and hope you did, too.
O Holy Night
By Placide Cappeau de Roquemaure (Translation by John Sullivan Dwight)
O Holy Night! The stars are brightly shining, It is the night of the dear Savior’s birth. Long lay the world in sin and error pining. Till He appeared and 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! Oh, hear the angel voices! O night divine, the night when Christ was born; O night, O Holy Night, O night divine! O night, O Holy Night, O night divine!
