Hymn & Scripture Challenge # 18 / O Holy Night

Good Morning all and Merry Christmas to each and every one of you!  I am so glad to be able to share our next Hymn with you today as it is a Christmas Hymn and such a beautiful one at that and for sure one of my all time favorite.  How thankful we should all be that our Father chose to send His Son to us in the form of a man so that we could all experience true forgiveness.
Look at the verses of this wonderful Christmas Hymn!

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!

Led by the light of faith serenely beaming,
With glowing hearts by His cradle we stand.
O'er the world a star is sweetly gleaming,
Now come the wisemen from out of the Orient land.
The King of kings lay thus lowly manger;
In all our trials born to be our friends.
He knows our need, our weakness is no stranger,
Behold your King! Before him lowly bend!
Behold your King! Before him lowly bend!

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! Then ever, ever praise we,
His power and glory ever more proclaim!
His power and glory ever more proclaim!

What a wonderful night that our Savior was born!  And to hear this beautiful song you can go here to hear Nat King Cole Sing!
Now here is my simple page, but I feel it reflects that wonderful Holy Night!
Now please make sure that you go over to see Patter's wonderful post as she has more details on the song and a wonderful devotion.
May you all have a wonderful and blessed Christmas!
