O Holy Night

XMas wishes

Merry Christmas everybody! I have been happily overdosing on Christmas carols to celebrate the season. I adore the old favourites, they just put me in the spirit. And no, there is no ‘corny’ when it comes to Christmas music! One of my favourite carols is O Holy Night and this morning I listened with great pleasure to Celine Dion’s incredible voice soaring wonderfully over the scales of this song. I hope you share in my pleasure.

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 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!

Truly He taught us to love one another,
His law is love and His gospel is peace.
Chains he shall break, for the slave is our brother.
And in his name all oppression shall cease.
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
With all our hearts we praise His holy name.
Christ is the Lord! Their name forever praise we,
Noel, Noel, O Night, O Night Divine!
Noel, Noel, O Night, O Holy Night!

  1. Merry Christmas to you too. I still can’t relate to a hot Christmas on the beach – like in your current part of the world, but then, that may simply be ’cause of the image of Christmas all propagated in the Northern Hemisphere.

    A friend of mine is in St Peter’s Square to be at the papal blessing. Very special, isn’t it ?

    Christmas music is oh so lovely.

    • Well, there are some lovely summery songs like ‘christmas in the southern hemisphere’🙂 Still i feel really sorry for the poor guys who dress as santa in the stores! Christmas in rome sounds really special, would love to do it sometime,,
      Cheers. Suja
