Christmas Carols Rock!

I was recently at a singing practice for Christmas Carols. It was awesome, Christmas Carols are awesome.

There is so much to be happy about at Christmas, like the fact that we are celebrating the God of this universe becoming a human! That’s pretty incredible!

During the practice, there was some debate as to the fact that the music we had apparently left out a verse of Silent Night. I was pretty oblivious to this, and had no idea what this verse was, despite the fact that I have sung Christmas carols my whole life. This made me realise that I don’t normally pay much attention to the lyrics of Christmas carols. And there are some pretty awesome lyrics. So I thought that I would have a look at some great carols, and reconnect with the lyrics.

Hark the herald angels sing, “Glory to the newborn King!”

O morning stars together, Proclaim the holy birth, And praises sing to God the King, And Peace to men on earth.

Glories stream from heaven afar, Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia! Christ, the Saviour is born

Joy to the world, the Lord is come!

It is amazing that God came to this world in human form! Let’s celebrate this Christmas!

    Oh I totally agree with you. It’s brilliant.

    Have been madly singing carols due to mission last week. I particularly like this verse of Joy To The World and only recently realised how wonderful it is:

    “No more let sins and sorrows grow,
    Nor thorns infest the ground;
    He comes to make His blessings flow
    Far as the curse is found”

    How incredible is that!!
